Selfie Clothing Review & Competition

I was really excited to be sent the Selfie Clothing Colour In Tops to amuse the boys.  Half term has been full of cries of “I’m bored!” so I was very grateful to pass them a tub each filled with an interesting top, a set of permanent fabric markets and a practise sheet.  I needed some peace and quiet and this activity certainly delivered that!  Not bad for £15 when you have a craft activity and a nice top for them to wear afterwards.

As for the boys they seemed quite happy to get creative, it’s lovely that they get to wear their handiwork afterwards, it motivates them to do a good job.


I think it’s useful having a practise sheet included so they can make sure they get their vision right for the real thing.  My eldest was keen to practise whereas youngest had a short go before deciding it was more fun to start designing straightaway.


There are lots of tops to pick from, we went for the Pirate and the Cowboy but you also have a Fireman, Indian, Police Officer, Princess, Robot and Superhero – so enough to keep everyone happy!  The tops themselves are quite lightweight so ideal for summer now its getting warmer.

For best results you need to iron on after colouring, but my boys took a breather and carried on the next day!  I am still feeling optimistic though.  I enjoyed seeing them colouring in, it’s a nice calm and peaceful activity, my boys are so noisy and boisterous it’s refreshing to engage in a quieter activity every now and then.  I like how my youngest made his feathers so bright and colourful.

These tops would make lovely gifts; they are presented nicely in little cardboard tubs and let children be artistic and have something to show for it in the end, you really cannot grumble with the price either.

I have a competition to giveaway one of these Colour In Tops please kindly enter using the form below by the 5th of July.

  34. These are perfect for my 5 year old niece (5 today actually). She is rather fond of drawing on things, such as walls, doors, candles etc - she managed to colour quite a few things in my house on her last visit so to have an item of clothing to decorate would be wonderful for her. What a good idea.
