Does anyone buy Garanimals clothing from Walmart? I am a new mom trying to dress my son on a budget. Thanks for your help!

I've never bought Garanimals, I don't think they carry them here in Canada, but what I can recommend are outlets - specifically Children's Place and Carters. Great quality and the outlets have awesome prices. (Children's Place usually

Yes, totally, it's great for boys, because it's cheap and somewhat durable.

I buy his enitre wardrobe each season from Walmart and the Graniamals Clothing is great. It wears well, true to size and lasts a while. I have a 2 year old that wears 2t-3t pants and 3t-4t shirts. I have both him Granimals clothing from the time he was 9 months old.

I loved Garanimals when my son was younger from Walmart!

I've cycled a number of foster kiddos through my home, plus my own 4, so here is my opinion. The walmart stuff is fine, but it's not gonna last and it's not great for hand me downs (important in my family!)

I found that I can get nicer stuff for about the same price or cheaper at used places. When it's outgrown, I take it back for credit so next time, I can buy from my credit. It doesn't cover it all, but it's something.

BUT, when I needed sweats for my kids when they had chicken pox, I went straight to walmart! I needed sweats that day in a size that would fit that day and didn't have any time to mess around. So I use both and find both to be fine.

I buy Garanimals leggings and yoga pants for my DD; they run about a size small, but she is a long, tall girl (she has always been a size larger than her age because of her long torso and legs).

I buy their gym shorts for DS.

For inexpensive play clothes, they are okay.

My sis always buys my girls Garanimals clothes and they seem to grow out of them so quickly. I don't know if I'm shrinking them in my dryer, the girls are growing at such a rapid pace, or if the sizes run small. The prices are so cheap though, some @ $3 a piece!
