Back to school shopping is under full swing. After going through closets and rearranging drawers, it came my attention that my girls had a similar plain style that I liked. I tend to gravitate towards the same. But, as I looked at what others were wearing, I knew that my girls wanted to go a little bold and find some spunky designs. I don’t like to pay a lot for these trendy items so I was excited to see that CookiesKids.com” had a huge selection.
Who doesn’t love when a package comes in the mail? Because we had just shopped a few days earlier, my one daughter ripped open the bag before I even got home. She was so excited to see the top she had just picked out online. The Kyut “Monterey” retailed for $14.99 was a big hit. I ordered a size up so that we would have it for awhile. As a mom of three, these are some of my tricks so that they don’t grow out of it too fast.
The One Step Up “Butterfly Love” Layered top retailed for $9.99. She was so glad she chose purple. I was glad too. Darker colors tend to last longer. The ESPRIT leggings were a great find at $6.99. Overall, I was happy with my purchase. The girls got to pick out some new items for school and I did not have to break the bank. I definitely will be back to check out the great deals. I’ll be on the lookout for my next coupon email.

A little bit about Cookie’s Kids history:
In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.
As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.
By the late 1990’s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding CookiesKids.com in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
