I was wondering if anybody buys clothes for their kids at Wal-Mart?I like Wal-marts clothes for kids because sometimes you can find cute clothes as well as shoes.I bought my daughter some Strawberry Shortcake shoes and my son Thomas the train shoes.Both of the shoes light up.I think also you get a good deal for the money.Sometimes I buy kids clothes at K-Mart,JcPennys ect,but sometimes some clothes have an outrageous price tag on them at some of the finer clothing stores.If I had th money I might buy alot more clothes at he finer clothing stores ,but for now it will just have to be occassionally.Unless I win the lottery.LOL

I have bought some clothes for my daughter at Wal-mart before, but I mostly buy them at JC Penney's on clearance. They cost about the same if not less.

I know, sometimes I take a chance and do it anyway, but I bought my girl some boots last year and this year they were a size too small. Argh!

When my neice was little we bought most of her clothes at Wal-Mart. They had some darling outfits and some nice priced every day wear as well. We would go to Sears or K-Mart now and then but usually it was Wal-Mart. Now that she's becoming a teenager she still gets Wal-Mart clothes just in the women's section (She's already 5'8) but she also likes to shop at the mall for clearence items. She knows the value of her dollars and doesn't like to over spend.

I don't have kids myself, but I buy clothes for my God daughter at Walmart all the time. At the rate kids grow out of clothes it is ridiculous to spend outrageous sums of money on designer clothing for them. And at ages 2,3,4 & 5 they don't know the difference, nor do they care! They'd rather wear practical clothes that they can get dirty.

yes I agree.I guess sometimes we are brought up into this world or some times can get influenced by thinking that we have to have the real expensive stuff but I think even the inexpensive stuff can mean alot.

Yes, I buy my kids clothes at Walmart too. I don't buy them all there, but I do buy from there. My kids clothes come from Penneys, The Childrens Place, Coles, and ebay, too. :)

Children grow like weeds so why spend the money on clothes from the finer shops? I always shop at Walmart and such for my children. I love their prices and the clothes are exactly what the children want...Characters, styles ect. Walmart has some rocking clothing! I do have a couple of outfits for the kids that are a littlier higher priced for good and going out. Walmart is awesome and I dont know what I would do without it. Why spend $30-$40 dollars on a pair of jeans at one store..when you can go to walmart and get something similar for under $20? Not to mention, who doesn't love the Walmart Sale Racks???

I buy clothes from everywhere. I don't really care about name brands. We have everything from Ralph Lauren down to Walmart and they all work the same and do the same thing! I just bought a bunch of stuff at Walmart for 3.00. Tinkerbell shirts and Alice In Wonderland jackets. They had a bunch of collared polo shirts for boys (short and long sleeved) that we bought for our son. They are only allowed collared or jeweled neck with no logos at his school. Those shirts were 3.00 as well ;) I love when Penny's and Sears have their sales. Penny's just had a big one on their Arizona jeans for kids. Jeans that were 19.99 were on sale for 8.99!

If I buy clothes for my son they come from Wal-mart. I find that their clothes out last other clothing lines and you cannot beat the price. Kids don't need all the fancy clothes - neither do adults - so why waste the money on them?

My children do have some things from JCPenney's, Sears, Old Navy and Gap but they have all been gifts. I've never been too impressed with the selection in the children's department of K-Mart, especially the girls. The skirts and dresses look they'd barely cover anything and tops seem way more low cut than any child should be wearing. Boys clothes at K-Mart aren't horrible but nothing spectacular either, also they're all crowded together at out local store. I don't bother trying to look at children's clothes if I can't squeeze the cart and the children in between the racks. Baby clothes at K-Mart are pretty much the same as anywhere else so I'll buy them there if I like the outfit. (I prefer the JCPenney ones though) Most of what I usually but comes from Wal-Mart. The selection isn't always the biggest and sometimes the clothes do wear out faster but the prices are low enough it still works out better.

There's nothing wrong with buying a child clothing from Wal*mart. It's not like their clothes have a "wal*mart" label on them, so everybody knows you shopped there. You can buy Disney clothes, Strawberry Shortcake (as you said).. you can buy a ton of stuff that you can buy just about anywhere else, and usually buy it for much cheaper. Unless somebody else shops at Wal*mart, they're not even going to know where your clothes (or your kids clothes) came from. It's nothing to be ashamed of. And why not save yourself some money??

once upon a child - second hand store sells quality kids clothes.
I dont really shop at walmart, only because there is not one where i live, there is a zellers which is the canadian version i think. its a canadian department store anyways. same idea. and i shop there for some things, but i buy a lot of stuff second hand for my baby as far as clothes go because she grows out of stuff really fast and i would go broke SO fast and she wouldnt stay clothed if i bought everything brand new! lol.

I have 3 boys 7 and under and buying clothes for them can get expensive!! So since they are young and don't care where I buy their clothes, I usually buy them at thrift stores. It amazes me how some people act weird when they find that out. I have gotten name brands and like new clothes. My kids are always well dressed. Sure I'd like to buy mor new clothes sometimes, but right now it's not in the budget. I did pick up a brand new spongebob shirt size 8 on clearance for only 3 dollars at Walmart, now I thought that was a great deal. Sometimes you can get some nice clothes on clearance at Walmart.

There are some awesome thrift stores. I don't have any close to me but I know people who find the most amazing new clothes at thrift stores so I wouldn't give you a weird look!

I wish I could find good clothes at the thrift store but usually the people that work in their must pick what they want or know someone who wants stuff before they put it out.I do sometimes but not alot.But that is a good way as well to get clothes.So dont be ashamed of that.

No, I do not buy children's clothes from walmart. They don't have a good selection of infant and toddler boy clothes. I get a lot of clothes for my 15 month old son from target, the children's store, old navy, and gap. Yes, sometimes their clothes are expensive but I want my child to dress nice, not like "I can barely afford any clothes for him".

Alot of my childrens clothes comes from wal-mart, I think what they charge for childrens clothes is outlandish and you can get good deals at walmart why spend $50 bucks on an out fit that your child may only get to wear once or twice? when you can spend $5 and have the same results!

I have found the clothes at Wal-mart do not hold their shape of color very well. If your children are growing very fast then I guess it is okay, but for long term the clothes wear out much quicker than better clothes at the department store. DO NOT buy your kids shoes at Wal-Mart. I bought one pair for my son and it nearly ruined his feet. He suffered for an entire year because the shoes have no support. Spen the extra money and get a good fitting shoe that is from a breathable material like leather or canvess. NEVER buy plastic shoes for your kids.

I buy most of my kids' clothes at walmart. Im not worried about name brands or stupid things like that. If it's cute, I will buy it for them regardless of the name on the tag!

I don't have alot of money and with 2 kids and another on the way the high end stores dont fit into my budget all that well. I hardly shop anywhere for their clothes except walmart. I think you get a good deal for the money and they grow up and out of them so fast I don't see the point in spending 50 dollars on a pair of jeans for a 4 year old. I also love the fact that they have their mix and match section with seperates costing only about 4 or 5 a piece and you can match them with anything I think walmart is wonderful and thank god for them or I would be shoppin g at goodwill or the salvation army for clothes!!

Absolutely. They are well made (usually), not terribly high priced and fashion friendly. I live in Canada and buy both daughters pieces there (one teen and one pre teen). I also buy their shoes there. Walmart is the cheapes of the big box stores here where i live and i also shop at thrift stores for them (you would be surprised what you can get there :-)

I buy most or all of my childrens clothes at walmart and Target. They both have like a generic type of clothing that makes it easy to buy for the kids...some shirts are like 3 dollars or so, where is when you buy an outfit the total price for a shirt and pants together is 15 dollars. My kids dont care at this age what they wear as long as they are warm and dont have holes in them.

An Asda Supermarket. - Asda supermarkets are part of the wal-mart chain.
In the UK we have Asda stores, they are part of the wal-mart chain, I buy not only a lot of my children's clothes there, I also buy clothes for myself as well, just because it does not have a designer label doesn't mean it is not good quality, I like a lot of their clothes range and they have a good selection of sizes and styles.

I buy most of my 2 year old daughters clothes at Wal*Mart. I also buy clothes for my 6 Year old son there too. The quality is very good and at $3.50 for tops and bottoms (for the baby), I don't care if they get stained. They used to have very cheap tees for my son a few years ago. $3.00!! I bought evry color and even a few in the same color. Now our 5 year old nephew is wearing them!! Go Wal*Mart!!!
