Jools Oliver's Little Bird collection for Mothercare review

The windows of the new Little Bird collection at Mothercare, Oxford Street
CLB popped into the vast Mothercare flagship on Oxford Street today to check out Jools Oliver's just-launched Little Bird  range for the high street colossus. We admit we were cynical about yet another celebrity design collaboration. Mothercare were clearly hoping for a repeat of the Myleene Klass' Baby K collection, which flew out the doors, but could Jools deliver? Shockingly yes, it's actually rather gorgeous. Mum-of-four Jools has created some really pretty (but not too twee) pieces including Liberty-esque printed smock dress and gathered skirt, a canary yellow cardigan and Scandi-style striped T-shirts for boys and girls. Overall it's less brash than Klass' more frill-filled concoctions. There's also a cute unisex rainbow decorated range for newborns, as well as bedding. The quality was fine (glad to see most things were 100 per cent cotton) and the colours bold; not a sickly pastel in sight. But of course this being Mothercare, the best bit was the prices - from £6 for leggings! And yes, Miss Evie and Little Lola will be enjoying a few new pieces in their wardrobes (see below).  Little Bird at Mothercare
