At BirdKids we sell lots of children’s clothing from mainland Europe. As you have probably noticed many of the sizes height in cm rather than ages as we do in the UK. In many ways this system makes more sense if you know the height of the child you are buying for. If not then it may become a perilous guessing game where a t-shirt may turn out to be a dress or a crop top…

Most of our EU sizes include the UK equivalent where appropriate but not all UK sizes include the European form. We have created this children’s clothes size conversion table for our international visitors (hello!). Please note, as with all guides, the sizes are based on the mythical "average child" and we strongly suggest you measure before buying.
