Sugar and Spice for Summer from Littlewoods Europe

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 12, 2012) - The Ladybird summer collection from Littlewoods Europe is full of sugar and spice and all things nice for girls and boys. Pretty prints, exotic colours, dots and stripes run through the girls' clothing range of dresses, trousers, playsuits and swimwear.

And no slugs or snails in sight but plenty of skulls and monsters across the boys' clothing collection, with lots of relaxed T-shirts, shorts and swimwear for Europe's outdoor living.

Ladybird clothes are designed with active kids in mind, with great value multi-buys that let them keep on going through the long summer days. And not forgetting this summer's essential T-shirts for boys and girls.

A spokesman from Littlewoods Europe said: "Ladybird has always been one of our best-selling children's brands. Great value clothes that really stand up to an active child's life style."

"Lots of mums tell us they remind them of the nostalgic days of their own childhood. Yet the fashions and colours are fresh and new each season. This year it's candy stripes and tropical florals, lots of nautical touches and a retro, preppy theme that's very much en vogue."
