A little about our clothing and our ethics

Our clothing will handle the kind of wear-and-tear that our kiwi lifestyle involves. With just a few exceptions (like our iconic and ever-popular Saltwater sandals invented 85ish years ago in the USA), our shoes and clothing are typically designed in New Zealand and Australia. Clothing from Bambini is designed to fit kiwi kids, and to feel good - fabrics are free of toxic chemicals and generally pre-shrunk. We offer a range of organic options, especially for babies and toddlers, and in most cases you can put it all in the washing machine! Fair Trade, Fair Reward for Fair Labour, and Ethical Supply Chains are priorities for us, as are avoiding plastic packaging where we can, and minimising waste and emissions.

Some of our brands are available on pre-order. This means you have first choice of our best selling brands. If some of your items are on pre-order, we will contact you to ask if you would like to wait and have all your items sent together when the pre-order arrives.

Note: Pre-orders are based on what we have ordered from our suppliers and at times they will be unable to deliver all items ordered. In this case, Bambini Ltd will be unable to fulfil your order. This is beyond our control and we will contact you to offer the next best option or a refund.

Pre orders can usually be seen on our website from 1-4 weeks before the stock arrives in our warehouse.

Please be aware that delays due to couriers or customs can arise. We will stay in touch with you about time-frames and will do everything we can to get your items out to you at the earliest possible opportunity.

Care instructions

Please follow the care instructions on the label of your garment, toy or other accessory. We recommend using a laundry bag for merino and other fine-fibre clothing. Wool wash and non-bio detergents are recommended for baby-clothing where a label says to machine wash - wool wash products are ideal for washing products in contact with baby’s skin, and they keep clothing, especially fine wool, looking good for longer than strong laundry detergents with whiteners etc.


Sizing guide - Get the best fit!


The fit is by AGE - from Newborn to 16 years.

If you have a child of 3 - choose SIZE 3. If they are nearly 4, go for SIZE 4. For wee ones, it is better to be generous - if baby is 6 months, don’t choose 3-6 months, go to the next size up (6-12 months). If the child you are fitting is noticeably big or small for their age, then go one up or one down. Easy!

For young children, the best way to measure their feet is by tracing their foot on a piece of paper and measuring the trace from big toe to heel. An easier option is to stand them as upright as possible on a piece of paper and draw a line at the big toe and heel. Measure the distance between, then take a look at our shoe size guide to convert mm to EU or US sizes. Here's a helpful guide from Bobux.

For older kids, use a measuring tape or ruler. Have them stand upright on the tape or ruler then take the measurement from the tip of their biggest toe to the end of their heel.

Convert your measurement to the correct shoe size, using the chart below.

Babies and young children 

 US Size EU Size Foot Length (mm) 
 2.5 18  105-111 
 3 19 112-118
 4 20 119-125
 4.5 21 126-132
 6 22* 133-139
 6.5 23 140-145
 7.5 24 146-152
 8 25 153-159
 9 26 160-166
 10  27  167-172

It is generally safe to go up half a size, when shoes are only available in whole sizes. Eg. your child measures 176mm, US 10.5 - order US 11 (EU28) where half sizes are not available. *Bobux has TWO size 22s, depending on whether the child is more baby or more toddler. Choose the (slightly longer) IWalk22 where your child is a confident walker. Choose the StepUp22 for children still 'finding their feet'. Feel free to call or email us to check.
