Super cute

This dress is super cute on, I got the size bigger then the kids age, as I find my kids usually fit the size up better. When my daughter opened this dress for Christmas it was instant love, it is stunning on and the material feels soft and has a tiny bit of stretch. Oobi clothes and hats wash well and this dress is so far, no exception.

Thank you for the great feedback, Melanie. ❤️

What a beauty

Such a wonderful dress … great quality and such a ‘happy’ print!

Thank you, Jo. ❤️

beautiful dress

Vibrant colours, very pretty dress, lovely soft, quality material. I bought this as a birthday gift for my granddaughter in the USA. I know she will love it. I hope you continue to make the 11 to 13 size. I also purchased the blue cockatoo for my other granddaughter. She will love the very Australian theme. Thank you oobi

Thank you for the wonderful review, Claire. ❤️ We have a new release too in sizes up to 12Y so please know that we value your feedback. xx

Gorgeous Quality Clothes

I am so grateful to have stumbled across Oobi earlier this year. The clothes are quality, unique and look absolutely beautiful on. I am proud to dress my 5 year old daughter in Oobi which now makes up most of her wardrobe. The clothes are true to size and service is super fast. Before you know it the bright red love heart package full of gorgeous goodies has arrived. Best kids clothing brand on the market!!! The face masks are great too - lovely patterns and super comfy. I can actually breath in my mask. I wish I could give Oobi 10 stars!

Thank you for the wonderful and helpful feedback, Yvette. Thank you for the Oobi love. ❤️❤️❤️

Outstanding customer service

This is a beautiful dress. It is exactly as it appears, lovely bright colours.
At first I didn't receive the item I ordered; however, once I emailed the response I received was prompt and efficient. I can't recommend Oobi enough. Beautiful clothes and 5 star customer service. I would give them more stars if I could.

Thank you for the awesome feedback, Jeanette. ❤️
