As someone who’s always on the hunt for a bargain but is also obsessed with buying clothes for her kids, when I saw the cute little outfits advertised by PatPat on facebook, I had to download the app.
I liken it to those games that you get so hooked on you end up buying the gold or coins or jewels in order to complete more levels. PatPat definitely has that addictive algorithm down pat (insert slow clap here), and I fell into that trap like I have done for the likes of Merge Dragons and Elvenar. They give away lots of codes or evouchers that you can apply at checkout, though of course you can only apply one. Yet they’re so good that you end up just making multiple orders. After all, what is 10$ shipping when you have a ‘free item up to $20’ voucher equipped? You’re basically getting something for half price! Bargain right?
The quality of the clothes themselves are pretty hit and miss. You have to make sure that you look at what material the clothes are made of. The 100% cotton items tend to be a little more expensive, but the quality shows in comparison to some of their 100% polyster things. I’ve had a few items that have gone straight in the bin since they’re not even good enough to give to charity, however, I have had loads that are not only really great looking, but also great quality.
If you’re handy with a needle and thread, you can probably salvage the rare item that comes with fraying thread or off coloured buttons, but on the whole what I take away from the app is that you get what you pay for. That, and you need to shop savvy with the abundance of vouchers you’ll get. And yes, you will get alot of vouchers.
