The Beginning . . .

Hi, I'm Kirsten.

I’m Mum to three small people and wife to Andrew. We’re kept company by four chooks and a lovely ginger cat called Put Put. I’m a Piano Tuner/Technician. And I run Hoopla Kids, a small business specialising in fun, colourful, creative and practical kids clothing from Scandinavia.

The concept formed when I fell in love with the Scandinavian clothing as my husband and I, along with our 7 month old daughter backpacked our way through Scandinavia in 2012. We were given a Duns of Sweden suit and I had not seen anything like it before. It was full of colour and great images and was made from lovely organic fabric. As we explored I discovered more and more amazing clothing.

On our return home I became passionate about bringing these clothes to New Zealand for all to enjoy.

Visit the blog to read about Hoopla Kids behind the scenes. It's about life with small children, fun clothing, organic gardening and trying to live a sustainable lifestyle.

I hope you can find something at Hoopla Kids that will brighten up a little or big person's life or maybe some of my posts will inspire you to try something new or do something different.

Size Chart

To work out which size to order we recommend measuring your child as the European sizing refers to the height of the child.

'DUNS Sweden' and 'More than a Fling'

Example: If the child is approximately 96cm tall, we recommend choosing size 98. If the child is between length sizes please check the chest size as a guide.

Chest and length measurements below are of the child.
