Those tell-tale red marks on little legs and arms can mean only one thing – mosquito season is upon us. But a newly opened kids’ shop, Zippy, an import from Portugal, is bringing a solution: a line of mosquito-repellent T-shirts and pyjamas!
“One of our main drivers at our Zippy store is innovation,” says João Portela, head of international markets for the brand. “We are constantly investing in creating new products with the purpose of making everyday life for families easier. With more than 100 stores across several regions of the globe, Zippy is currently present in over 40 countries and we spend lots of time getting to know what families need.”
The store is bright, airy and very welcoming, and home to a great collection of beautiful clothes, trendy accessories and even stylish décor for the nursery, which all combine design, innovation and quality at reasonable prices. And, in addition to keeping the mosquitos at bay,
Zippy has also designed an antibacterial apparel line for babies, to keep them fresh and clean while still looking stylish.
But it’s not all about the purchasing, as this store offers a fun shopping experience, too. Young customers can enjoy multimedia games and balloon machines, and have a giggle at the posters that play animal sounds as they pass by. They can even explore some tunnels that are found throughout the store, turning an outing to Zippy into a bit of an adventure. No mosquitos allowed!
