Get: Hannas

Today I'm singing Hanna Andersson's praises. The Swedish children's clothing company is committed to making long-lasting, good-looking clothes designed for a child's active, playful lifestyle. They're so serious about their mission, they offer an unconditional guarantee on every item they sell. And I quote:

If you’re unhappy with a product at any time for any reason, just bring or send it back to us, and we’ll refund the purchase price or replace the item. It’s as simple as that.

The Hanna price-point is higher than I like, so I didn't purchase a single Hanna item the first 10 years of parenting. Ripped knees are what eventually led me to the promised land. I reached a breaking point late last year: all of my children's pants were ripping in the knee after just a few wears. Discouraged by the low quality of most children's clothing, I was determined to find a solution. Enter Hanna Andersson: They unconditionally guarantee even their boys' pants? Okay, I'll give it a go.

I discovered that Hanna offers regular website sales, and I can get a 20% off promo code by referring a friend who is a new customer. So, I was able to buy a household supply of pants for 50% off (30% off website sale, plus 20% off Refer-A-Friend promo code), with unconditional guarantee. This mama was smiling; still am, in fact. Unfortunately, they don't offer free shipping very often (I stubbornly refuse to pay for shipping), but they do offer free shipping to a store.

My kid's (and my) favorite Hanna pants are their Boys' Slim Sweats in 100% Cotton. The waists are small enough for their skinny frames (most pants fall right off them); the cotton is soft and comfortable; the slim legs are nicely tailored; and the pockets are zippered, for storing treasures. My favorite color they come in is black, sharp enough for every day wear.

Don't get me wrong, Hanna clothes aren't indestructible. A few of our slim sweats have gotten holes, but Hanna replaced them with an apology and a smile. That's how you get brand loyalty! I'm also a big fan of their pajamas (which are the #2 victim of holes in the knees).

If you'd like a Refer-A-Friend 20% off promo code, send me a message via my contact page and I'll email one to you. Cheers to Hanna Andersson for making great kids clothes that let them be kids and look good in the process.
