When beauty-industry executive Jo Tutchener-Sharp survived a brain tumour in 2015, she resolved to put her years of experience with brands such as Tom Ford and Estee Lauder to good use and launch her own children’s range. And within months of her recovery, Scamp & Dude was born.
Scamp & Dude is a stylish new unisex collection of children’s clothing providing children with an extra sense of security thanks to a team of very special superheroes. Loved by celebrity mums and their offspring on Instagram and spotted on Robbie Williams backstage at the Brits, its hero leopard print and superhero story has become instantly iconic and the Sleep Buddy donation initiative has seen over 400 buddies gifted to children in need. Until recently, it was only available at Liberty of London but all that is about to change.
We are beyond thrilled to announce that Our Kid in Chorlton, Manchester is one of only 3 independent boutiques across the UK to have been selected to stock Scamp & Dude and we will be exclusive stockists in the North West. We love the story behind the brand, we love the unbelievably soft sweatshirts and cutting-edge fashion design including the iconic pink and green leopard print motif.
At the heart of the collection is the Superhero Sleep Buddy. These stylish shaped cushions are available in two adorable superhero characters, a bunny (with more than her fair share of attitude) and a slightly overwhelmed dinosaur. Even though they look super cute, the pair are bursting with special superpowers to watch over the child at night and keep them safe.
The Superhero Sleep Buddy also contains a pocket for photographs of loved ones, to keep them close by. This could be a parent working away on business, a grandparent who lives far away or simply a parent who is in the next bedroom, which can sometimes feel like a galaxy away to a small child.
And now for e really good bit...
The opportunity to be someone else’s hero. For every Superhero Sleep Buddy sold, another is donated to a vulnerable child, offering them a little extra security during a difficult time; this may be a child who’s lost a parent, one whose parent is seriously ill or a child who’s in hospital themselves.
Scamp & Dude is a brand that helps children feel more secure when apart from their loved ones.
From something dark came something light.
You can view the collection online at Our Kid or stop by to see us in our Chorlton shop at 9a Oswald Road, Manchester M21 9LP.
