These are the most practical children’s crowns I’ve seen. They help keep their hair out of their eyes, while allowing them to be ‘princesses’ all day. After all, my little girls are princesses because Jesus is the high king.
But not all childrens crowns can stay in all day, and some even cause more trouble than having their hair in their eyes. We have tried many styles!
The typical crown that digs in above their ears, the alice band with the swivel crown decor, the crown combs, I have even made them beaded crowns from alice bands. This alice band’s crown is light enough not to affect its normal function while the pink glitter raises its status, making it perfect for my girly pre-schooler, but it is still too easy to break for her more mischievous & sporty sister. The elasticated hairband is perfect for her. She wears it as a hair band, a sweat band & even hippy style around loose hair. It can still be worn to look girly, but not as obviously so as the pink glitter one. I especially love the idea of sewing netting over the sequence, it makes it look more unified & makes it more toddler/pre-schooler proof.
I got these for around R10 each at PEP while on holiday & am much more impressed with them than the more expensive ones I have found in town. Practical, beautiful (to the age group), affordable & durable = I count this as a bit of good design. Well done PEP! You may be aimed at the masses, but you still have some better designs than elite stores & boutiques.
May these crowns cintinue to free up our princesses to climb, colour, paint & run to their hearts delight!
