About Moomoo Ponchos

 

Once upon a time…there was a little girl who loved dressing up. She loved camping, having fun at festivals, making sandcastles on the beach and going to the park. She was much like lots of other little girls and boys throughout the kingdom who love to spend time outside.

Sometimes, when the little girl got chilly after a swim or in the late afternoon, she needed something warm, snuggly and FUN to keep her warm. But, Mummy couldn’t find anything that was just right.

So, always one to feed the imagination and bringing together all of her skills and experience as a Garment Technologist for Children's Clothing, Mummy decided to buy some fleece fabric and make her little girl a poncho.

Warm, practical and easy to put on without getting in the way of playtime: the little girl instantly loved her cosy, stylish poncho. Before long, family, friends and even strangers on the street were requesting a poncho for their children!  

Prototypes were developed and tested by both boys and girls, who loved them so much that they barely took them off for a week! The children played in them, ate in them, slept in them…lived in them! So, Mummy decided to share her ponchos with all the children of the land and Moomoo Ponchos was born.
