Panda & Ping is a kids’ pyjama and bedding company founded and run by the dynamic and rather stylish mum, Pippa. She has two children, a boy and a girl who have inspired her to create a brand of kids’ sleepwear which is founded on quality and fun, playful design. The brand was named after Pippa’s childhood cuddly toy Panda, who is still loved and well worn from cuddles and adventures taken with Pippa and Ping, a toy penguin adored by her son.
Colour features heavily within Panda & Ping’s designs with bold graphics and the signature brightly coloured contrasting cuffs on the arms and legs and neckline. This follows through to the blanket range with sets of bedding also available. From the flamboyant flamingoes, to the dapper hippos, to the elephants on parade, every design has been carefully thought out so as to add colour to a little one’s bedroom without jarring with a colour scheme.
All the products are designed, printed and made in Great Britain which is becoming harder and harder to find. Panda & Ping really do champion Great British manufacturing and entrepreneurship.
We use fantastically soft and cosy 100% cotton jersey for all our products. Which are ecologically sourced from British manufacturers, our whole collection is 100% OEKO Tex certifired cotton, making it ‘phalite’ free. So you can rest assured that there is nothing nasty against your little one’s delicate skin.
The first time the boys wore their pyjamas Harry said, “These are the softest pyjamas ever. Can I wear them every night?”. And yes, they are incredibly soft, even after washing (they are washed ALOT, so they can be worn most nights). The 100% jersey cotton is ecologically sourced from British manufacturers and the whole collection is OEKO Tex certified cotton, making it free from “phalites”. With Harry an eczema sufferer this is always good to hear as with some pyjamas he’s worn in the past, he has woken up at night with sore, itchy legs.
The designs have a safari theme although (and maybe this is just because the boys are obsessed with Madagascar 3 at the moment) I feel the range has a hint of a circus about it.
Harry wears the “Ringo” pyjamas (circus ring??…is it just me?). He has them with the red contrasting cuffs as well as a bright purple. These would make gorgeous Christmas pyjamas. The red and purple echoing rich Christmas colours whilst the pattern is reminiscent of snow falling. It is also rather lovely to be able to wear the pyjamas beyond Christmas, don’t you think?
As well as kids, there is an adorable baby range with rompers, cotbed sheets and blankets. These would make adorable new baby gifts as they would be so gentle on delicate baby skin.
If you are looking for kids pyjamas which you would happily sleep in yourself (hint, hint Panda & Ping – Harry is right, these are the softest pyjamas ever!), feels soft to the touch, supports British industry and is run by a strong Mum Boss, then Panda & Ping is the brand for you.
