If there is one brand that we are specially fond of – besides all other brands we carry at Loja Dada for Kids – it is Nico Nico. A truly understated brand, with focus on simplicity, modern and comfortable cuts, special colors and prints and environmentally conscious materials.
We said one post before this that the Bobo Choses campaign images were our favorite this season, but 5 minutes later we remembered “oh, we forgot Nico Nico!” It’s hard to have a favorite when surrounded by so much loveliness.
Nico Nico designs comfortable and timeless styles. Quality, value and respect for the environment are key values. All of their clothes are designed and fabricated in Los Angeles. We hope you and your little ones play, explore and relax in Nico Nico!

It is our firm opinion that everybody needs good basics. And we are talking about quality here, not about clothes from the throw-away generation of clothes.
I Dig Denim is a brand from Sweden, created by Hanna Clavegard in 2009.
Quoting Hanna: “I have always loved jeans. Everything from the character of the fabric, to how it can be shaped and adapted according to style and taste. Denim is timeless, easy to wear and practical. With my brand I want to give children and women what I love – personal clothing that are made to feel comfortable in. It’s simple, I dig denim.”
The items from this brand are well-made, durable, well-fitted, coming from a company not producing in Europe, but operating under a strict code of ethics, similar to the one we are following as a retailer, when choosing our brands.
It is a persistent myth that children grow too fast, that clothes don’t fit long. Usually, kids clothes are used (intensively, yes, and this is why quality is important, too, because they are worn and washed all the time) during a fair amount of time, sometimes a very long amount of time. Maybe the most delicate part of clothing are pants, as kids (specially boys we hear) tend to tear the pants a lot (and that can be a problem!), but if you buy your clothing in the right size, usually we find it to last and get appreciated for long enough. And if in good condition you can still hand it over to family and friends!
As a shop-owner, mother and consumer, i find it it worth the effort buying the “good” items, buying less, but buying better quality, buying from smaller brands and retailers, but buying something special.And I Dig Denim are definitely “good items, that feel well, look well, and last for as long as they need to!
Please enjoy I Dig Denim! (our selection is available here, at our online shop)
This is surely one of our favorite work of art this season. These pictures are beautiful, they transmit the mood of a calm and mature collection. The brand has grown but still looks playful and relaxed, in exact the right combination for pleasing small and big children alike, and even mother enter our shop trying on the bigger sizes for themselves!

The Animals Observatory – the Spanish brand under the creative direction of Laia Aguilar – has released new lookbook pictures and we are really happy about the result, as they give a good idea of the feeling and looks obtained when mixing and matching and using all those beautiful items.
At Loja Dada for Kids we value the efforts of “small” and creative brands, considering small the opposite of huge brands, corportations, chains.
The smaller brands are the creative one, creating new conceps, looks, visuals, feelings and lifestyles, and the bigger brands and corporation each season draw heavy inspiration from this true Artwork.
We like to keep the world small, we like to know where our products are coming from, who made them and how and where. As many of the other brands we offer at our online shop and Lisbon showroom , this brand too is produced in Europe, mostly Spain and Portugal, which makes us particularly happy.
As a mother as well i prefer to shop fewer but more special items, that make us feel connected to the world, because we feel connected to the people and stories behind the brands.
