    Children's wear is different from adult clothes. When parents buy clothes for their children, the fabric of the clothes is their first consideration. The fabric shouldn't be harmful to children's skin. Then, parents will consider the safety. The zipper and buttons shouldn't hurt their children. When their children become a little older, parents will take quality, design, prices and brands into consideration.

    At present, the brands of children's wear in China are divided into several categories. They are international sports brands like nikekids and Adidaskids, domestic brands developed from adult brands like Antakids, LiNingkids, SWkids and Balabala; brands with a certain scale like Paclantic, SOUHAIT, LITTLEBOBDOG, Mickey, Goodbaby and Les enphants;cartoon brands like Disney, the Lion King and the popular Xi Yang Yang; and foreign brands like In the Night Garden, Transformers and POPEYE. In addition, some European brands begin to pour into the Chinese market. These brands, represented by H&M and ZARA, pay more attention to small profit and quick return. Some famous brands in Chinese adult clothes industry have broadened their way to children's wear market, such as Anta, Li Ning, 361°, SEPTWOLVES and Giordano.

    Currently, the famous brands in the Chinese market have their own styles. There are fewer and fewer phenomena of plagiarism and sameness. The pace of children's wear subdivision continues accelerating. The subdivision contains different levels, such as market pattern, region, enterprise pattern and brand style, etc. More trade forms will especially derive from the manufacture industry. Brand groups, marketing companies of professional brands, brand processors, brand retailers, exclusive retailers, professional purchasing agents, professional wholesalers, design companies and brand customization companies will come into being.

    In recent years, many famous Chinese children's wear enterprises begin to cooperate with international brand companies. There is an overwhelming trend of the famous international brands to enter Chinese market.
