Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s Clothes

One of Kate’s favorite children’s clothing designers is Rachel Riley. Since George’s birth, we have seen him and little Charlotte dressed in Rachel Riley’s traditional British clothing. And because I love looking at baby clothes, I wanted to put this post together with some examples of the favorite royal children’s clothing designer.

First off, here are some really sweet pajamas and nighttime onesies. Some of the pajamas are on sale right now to make way for Spring clothes.

At 18 months old, I bet Charlotte wears something like this to bed. I think it is really sweet and feminine.

When Kate dressed George as a baby he wore a sweater by Rachel Riley that had this British soldiers pattern on it. Never too early to get George interested in the military, right? 🙂

When George met President and First Lady Obama he wore traditional gingham pajamas. These pajamas are stripes but they are a very similar style.

Rachel Riley also makes some plaid pajamas which would be perfect if George went to Balmoral and visited his great-Granny in Scotland. 🙂

Now, for a baby shower gift, I think one of these onesies with the matching blanket would make a really sweet gift.

And these dresses are the style that Kate prefers when she dresses Charlotte. Usually Kate would put a white cardigan over a dress like this.

This is a nice little sweater that is unisex. Charlotte has actually been seen wearing sweaters that are hand me downs from when George was a baby.

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=511234316&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Kate likes to dress George the way Diana dressed William when he was a little boy which typically means a shirt, sweater, and shorts. Much has been said lately about how George always wears shorts, even on Christmas day during the winter. What I have read is that this is a traditional, upper class way of dressing boys. I think Kate wants to keep George in shorts until he is 8 years old or so. However, I have also seen pictures of William and Harry as small boys wearing long trousers so I am not entirely convinced this is the concrete rule that some people have made it out to be. I have known boys who just prefer wearing shorts. Maybe George likes wearing shorts?

Here are some of the simple shorts that Kate likes to dress George in.

George and Charlotte’s Traditional Toys

Hi guys! I have a really fun article for you today. A while ago I wrote a blog post on Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s Favorite Things, including some of their favorite toys and other products from the toy companies that Kate buys from. That post was really popular and I enjoyed writing it so I decided to write an even longer post where I identified some more toys that George has been seen playing with. This article is dedicated to introducing you guys to the toy companies that have made toys that George and Charlotte have been seen playing with. The same exact toys that George and Charlotte played with may no longer be available; however, I enjoy picking out some of my favorite toys from collections from these companies because they are either similar to what George and Charlotte have played with or because I just think they are awesome toys. In addition to the toy companies we know Kate has bought toys from, I also thought it would be fun to highlight some other toy companies that I think Kate should buy from because they also specialize in traditional, classic wooden toys or toys that are high quality and seem like something royal kids should have in their nursery. So Kate, if you read this blog, I hope I give you some ideas when you shop for your kiddos the next time you want to include some props in a photo shoot! 🙂

This is a long post, but like I said I really enjoyed writing it. Some of these toys are so fun looking I am almost tempted to play with them myself. I also am aware of the fact that vintage or retro themed nursery are really popular right now. So some of these toys would even look great on display in a newborn’s nursery on a shelf or bookcase until they are old enough to play with them. But what I love about all of these toys is that even though they are all beautifully made and are high quality toys, most of them are wooden and big, chunky pieces so young kids can play with them and you don’t have to be too worried about tiny little pieces. I used to be a nanny, so I know a thing or two about what toys kids like to play with. So this post is basically a list of all of the toys I would love to buy my kids if I had any. Maybe one day! 🙂

Enjoy!

Melissa and Doug

Back in Christmas of 2014, the Daily Mail ran an article which stated that Pippa Middleton purchased a cute little police car for her nephew, Prince George. After doing a little research I recognized that the police car is by Melissa and Doug, an American toy company that makes lots of wooden toys and educational toys. The police car is not sold individually any longer. However, you can buy the police car in a set of four with a school bus, taxi, and firetruck. The little stuffed, soft cars are designed as ‘pull-back’ vehicles that move across the floor.

Find them here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=441169698&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

The police car that Pippa bought for George is also available in this awesome play mat. I just think this is a really cool idea. All of these little cars fit inside of a little carrying case that zips up and you can carry it around by the handles. But when it unzips all the way the bag itself becomes a play mat for the cars. I think this is a great idea for traveling in a car since the toy is easy to clean up and car inside of the mat.

Orange Tree Toys

So as I said in my previous blog post about George and Charlotte’s toys, Kate’s favorite toy company is Orange Tree Toys, a British toy company that specializes in classic wooden toys. These toys are harder to find in the states. Tip: Occasionally I have seen some of their toys at Home Goods and TJ Maxx, it’s hit or miss.

Here are some Orange Tree Toys that I found online that I like and are easier to purchase if you live in the United States. First, there is this safari set. Rumor has it that Kate decorated baby George’s nursery in a safari theme because William proposed to Kate in Kenya. Considered William and Kate’s love of Africa I would not be surprised at all of George had toys like this in his nursery.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=525294721&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

One cute thing about Orange Tree Toys is that they also make some decorative pieces for nurseries/kids rooms. They have music boxes and book ends that are really cute. Here is an example of one of their book ends. It is wooden and made in the same way as their wooden toys.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=438332103&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Then, there is this colorful puppy push toy that I like. I actually saw this toy in person in Home Goods recently. Do you see the little balls on the wheels? They move when you push the dog across the floor. Super cute.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=462446551&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

And finally, I remember how I used to play with a wooden toy Noah’s Ark when I was a little girl. This one is so bright and colorful, it’s really sweet.

Le Toy Van

Ok, going by what I know about the toys that Kate buys for George and Charlotte, Kate prefers to buy classic, vintage inspired wooden toys. Therefore, I recommend Le Toy Van, a British toy company established by Georges Le Van in 1995. They specialize in classic wooden toys. Their toys are handcrafted and painted like little works of art. They are all just so adorable. I picked some of my favorites to highlight in the blog for your guys based on what I imagine George and Charlotte may play with in their nursery. Here they are!

First, I love this pretty pastel play kitchen. It comes with the utensils, pan, play food, and oven mitt that you see in the pictures. What kid doesn’t love playing with play food?

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=525080128&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Next, I really love this washer. Small children love to pretend to do the things they see adults doing, like cooking and cleaning.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=474427736&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Going with the cooking theme, I love this mixer and baking set. I really like the retro, 1950s powder blue color of the mixer.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=383859372&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Speaking of retro, they also make a kitchen set in red and powder blue. I really love how vibrant this is.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=499010073&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

I found this coffee maker to match. I like the polka dots on the coffee mugs.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=494002131&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

I know when I was a kid I used to love to pretend to camp in a tent. This camper cook top would be perfect for the kid who loves to play in a tent.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=520194230&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Le Toy Vans makes some really awesome play food. They are all so colorful and well made with a lot of attention to detail in the way that they are painted. Take a look at this set. The leaves are made of fabric while the fruits themselves are made of painted wood.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=495687345&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

They also have a unique crate of fish that I thought was cool. It comes with six fish. Like the crate of fruit, the fish come in a wooden crate with a pretend newspaper inside. I like the presentation.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=495687594&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Now, I really love this one. I adore anything bright and colorful for kids. This toy is called “ice lollies” by this British toy company but here in the States we would probably call these ice pops. Too cute!

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=495687340&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

And what traditional English toy company would be complete without a sweet tea set. I love the polka dots and the little tart/cake that comes with the tea set. I like the tray, too.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=495687526&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

And how can you have a spot of tea without a plat full of ‘biscuits’? I just love how each of these cookies is different. It’s so pretty!

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=499029060&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

You can get these cute little sweets and a petit four as well.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=461227138&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

This toy is perfect as a companion piece to one of the kitchen sets because it has a cookie tray that is made to fit inside of the play kitchen oven. Kids can pretend to use the rolling pin to roll out the cookies, bake them on the baking sheet, and then decorate them with the little decorations that come with it. It even has an oven mitt! I swear I’m tempted to play with some of these things myself. 🙂

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=499090595&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

I also really love this “My First Toolbench.” It looks like fun!

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=499012867&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

And this tool belt would go great with it.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=493977689&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Le Toy Van also makes some adorable puzzles. Here are two examples. There is this colorful, bright woodland theme puzzle.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=493961490&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

And then there is this London theme puzzle with a little double decker bus.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=495687521&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Speaking of double decker buses, take a look at this one! So awesome. Considering how much Prince George (like most boys) loves train, helicopters, and motorcycles I wouldn’t be surprised if he had at least one double decker bus in his nursery. It could even be this one!

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=499018471&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Most kids also love fire trucks, too. Maybe it’s the bright red color that they are fascinated by?

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=505043987&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

There is also a cute pack of six cars inspired by vehicles found in New York City.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=466323489&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

And I couldn’t help but share this awesome pirate ship with you guys. I think it is so cool. I just want to point out that I think it is fantastic that this pirate ship features a girl pirate doll. Kudos to Le Toy Van for being inclusive. I used to get so frustrated as a little girl if there were no girl pirates, cowboys, Jedi, etc. for me to play with.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=466317466&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

Le Toy Van also makes some beautiful doll houses. I have a ‘thing’ for doll houses. I just think they are so sweet and adorable. If I have kids one day they are absolutely getting a doll house. This little house is special because it is a fairy doll house and you can get fairy dolls and accessories to go with it. My little cousin was obsessed with fairies when she was a little girl. She would have LOVED this.

Find it here:

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=382303150&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

And here are the fairies! So sweet!

And look! There is a fairy with a magical carriage driven by a unicorn! IT’S SO FLUFFY I’M GONNA DIE! (Sorry, that’s a “Despicable Me” reference. I think of it every time I see a unicorn.)

Vilac

Finally, I would like to introduce you guys to a French toy company named “Vilac” that I really like. Like the previous companies I wrote about, this company also makes adorable wooden toys for kids. Here are some examples.

This is a cute push toy with a penguin, polar bear, and a fish.

And a cute cat pull toy. The cat’s tail looks like it is on a spring so it probably bounces around when you pull it.

Find it here:

And another pull toy!

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=494015085&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

This elephant pull toy is really bright and colorful. You could probably put some of these toys on display in a nursery in addition to letting kids play with them. They are all really pretty.

But maybe one of my favorite toys is this little grocery. It has a mini cash register, fruits and vegetables, boxes of food, and even little paper bags. The details on this toy are really amazing down to the chalkboard.

Vilac also makes some really cool puzzles. This box of puzzles is inspired by London. There are three puzzles that come in a double decker bus shaped box.

Finally, Vilac makes some really sweet mini musical instruments for small children. Take this red piano for example. It comes with sheet music.

George and Charlotte’s Favorite Things

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have adamantly shielded their children from the unrelenting glare of the public eye in the hope that they might live a normal childhood, which I can wholeheartedly respect. It is for precisely this reason that I refuse to publish paparazzi photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte on my blog. However, the official pictures released by Kensington Palace-and often taken by mum Kate herself- have offered brief glimpses into the lives of the Cambridges. From these photos and from tidbits of information that William and Kate have given to the public one can gather some sense of what life must be like growing up a royal child. I personally love to look at baby and children’s toys because I think they are sweet. I also think it is fun to imagine the types of toys and accessories that may be found in the royal nursery at Anmer Hall. So here is a fun little blog discussing George and Charlotte’s favorite things for those of you lucky enough to have children in your life to shop for!

 

In one of the sweet pictures that Kate took of Charlotte when she was about six months old Charlotte can be seen holding a Jellycat “Fuddle Wuddle” puppy, which happens to be one of her favorite toys. I love her toothless smile as she looks at her puppy with glee! The same exact puppy may no longer be available but there are some similar ones that babies would love just as much. Jellycat is an English company and their stuffed animals are very soft and meant to be appropriate for children of all ages including very small babies like Charlotte.

Here is a brown puppy very similar to Charlotte’s.

Jellycat also produces sweet baby books that are meant as companion pieces to the stuffed animals. One of the stuffed toys plus a matching book would make a really sweet baby shower gift.

I also love the black and white spotted dog that Jellycat makes. Here is the little book called “If I Were a Puppy.”

And here is the adorable matching stuffed animal! Too cute.

And another matching book! I wonder if Charlotte has some of the books to match her stuffed dog?

Besides dogs, Jellycat also makes some other adorable animals. There are too many for me to list all of them here so I will just pick some of my favorites. I love this stuffed bunny with the cute contrasting pattern on the ears and paws. Perfect for a little girl.

I also have a soft spot for giraffes. I just love the pattern.

For their Christmas photoshoot, the Cambridges posed outside. We can see that Prince George was playing with a wooden toy train on the ground near Prince William’s foot. The train is by Orange Tree Toys, an English toy company that specializes in classic wooden toys. George’s toy train is currently sold out yet I have found some other toys by the company that are very sweet and I wouldn’t be surprised if they might be in the children’s nursery.

First, there is this really cute dog push along that I can imagine George and Charlotte playing with. It’s made by the same company that made George’s train and is colorful yet classic.

They also have this cute wooden Noah’s Ark set.

Since Kate seems to like to buy George and Charlotte wooden toys, I would also like to point out that one of my favorite American toys companies, Melissa and Doug, also makes some really sweet classic wooden toys. For example, since George’s exact toy train is sold out, take a look at these wooden Melissa and Doug trains which are similar in style.

For her adorable 1st birthday shoot, Princess Charlotte showed off her walking skills with a Orange Tree Toy block push toy. Like the train that George was pictured playing with, this toy also sold out quickly. But here is a similar block pull toy by Melissa and Doug.

https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=356200953&pid=uid9225-31713435-16

And Melissa and Doug also make a few cute wooden push toys that are meant to help encourage toddlers beginning to walk.

Back when Kate was pregnant with George a few years ago, she was seen out and about with her mom, Carole, purchasing some baby items at boutiques. This Moses basket sticks out in my mind when thinking about what items might be in George and Charlotte’s nursery. I bet that both babies used this basket.

And while Kate purchased a Moses basket from a more exclusive and expensive boutique, I managed to find a pretty one from Kohl’s for a reasonable price.

Finally, Prince William recently made a statement that his children love “The Gruffalo,” a children’s book that I honestly had never heard of before. Then again, I don’t have kids so maybe some of my readers are more familiar with this story. There were two Gruffalo books that I could find. The original and then a sequel called “The Gruffalo’s Child.”

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of George and Charlotte’s favorite things! I think it is lovely that they get to have the opportunity to enjoy a relatively normal childhood. Don’t forget to like My Frugal Lady on Facebook and to follow this blog for more articles! 🙂
