Now that school has resumed and we just celebrated Labor Day, it’s really time to begin thinking about the Fall season. Though my son is too young for me to go back to school shopping just yet, he still needs new clothing for the cooler weather ahead. I’ve been doing a little shopping here and there for him, but he’s still in need of long sleeved tops and pajamas.
If I had it my way, I would definitely do the majority of my shopping online. It’s a lot less hassle than trying to haul a toddler from store to store. He doesn’t like trying on clothing anytime, so that’s out of the question when we are out shopping. Therefore, I decided just to place an order at CookiesKids.com.
This was my first time shopping on the site, but I wasn’t worried. With the business celebrating its 40th birthday, I knew I was getting clothing that was durable and high quality – and when as I browsed the site, I realized I was going to get a good deal as well!
The homepage led me right where I wanted to be: fall fashion for boys. The site is very easy to navigate once you begin looking at the clothing. Once I was in the boy’s department, I could easily choose what I wanted to view. I looked at tops and pajamas for my son first, then ventured to other areas of the site, just to see if anything else would capture my interest.
I was very impressed to see so many name brands on this site. Cookie’s Kids offers clothing from Paul Frank, Levi’s, Carter’s, Nautica, Disney and more. The prices on the site were also quite amazing as well, and I feel they were very reasonable for kids clothes. It was okay to fill up my shopping cart without having to worry that I’d have a high total at the end! Plus, they offer $5 flat rate shipping, which is always nice!

I easily found the items I wanted to purchase from #CookiesKids. The only thing that seemed a bit of a problem was the size charts, or lack thereof. There were none for the boys 2T-4T section. My son is usually right with the sizes, however, so I don’t think it will be too big of a deal. Placing the order for my fall fashion items was a breeze and I received a confirmation email within minutes of hitting the “Submit” button.
My son has become fascinated with mail lately, so he was excited when the bag from Cookie’s Kids arrived rather than the usual envelopes we get. I have to admit that I was a bit excited myself. I knew he was going to the love the character clothing when he saw it!
The modeling session took a little too long so he started to get antsy, but he did like his new clothes – especially the Sesame Street shirt! The kids clothing I chose fit him great, and I believe he will be getting a lot of wear out of them in the upcoming months. The outfits are great for everyday wear, and the green shirt will go nicely with a pair of blue jeans.
More About Cookie’s Kids
In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together, opening a store selling holiday toys the day after Thanksgiving in Jamaica. The toys were a hit, so the brothers bought children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.
Eventually Sonny, a third brother, came in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations and their inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.
By the late 1990′s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding CookiesKids.com in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
