Your little gumnuts are going to be thrilled with the range of adorable May Gibbs iconic designs that are launching at Big W stores.

This extensive collection includes baby and toddler clothes and shoes, sleepwear (for kids and adults), nursery decor and books.

This is May Gibbs’ first-ever exclusive BIG W range, which will be featuring nostalgic Australian designs, including our favourite Gumnut Babies.

We can’t wait to see the eight baby apparel options – including onesies, rompers, sleepwear, sleeping bag, gift set and bunny rug. There is also a cutesy-pie feeding range, featuring a boxed feeding set of bowl, spoon, sippy cup and a two-pack bib set. I know my girls will go crazy over the seven May Giggs themed toddler girls’ pieces including tees and shorts, swimwear, dress, sleepwear and shoes. Prices range from $15 for a tee to $25 to a print dress.


May Gibbs For Mums

But it’s not all about the kids, and mums get their own Gumnut branded sleepwear too (yay!).

You can also decorate your home nursery with the May Gibbs charm. Pick from walls art ($7), decals, coat hangar set, rubbish bun, photo frame ($12) and even a growth chart ($9). Plus there’s also a single bed quilt cover and hooded towel.


Gumnut Books

Complete your collection with the six May Gibbs books including The Bush Adventures Collection, Good Morning, Gumnuts, Goodnight, Gumnuts, Gumnut Babies 123, Gumnut Babies ABC and Meet Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

The May Gibbs collection is launching on Thursday 30 July 2020 as part of BIG W’s Bub&Me event.

More About May Gibbs

Born in 1877 in Kent, United Kingdom, May Gibbs arrived in Australia at the age of four. She drew and painted as a child and went on to study art in Western Australia and in the UK before settling in Sydney as a children’s books author and illustrator. Her best know children’s book include Gumnut Babies (1916) and the Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie (1918).

On her passing in 1969 she bequeathed 50% of the copyright of all her works to The Northcott Society and 50% to Cerebral Palsy Alliance.  Through her foresight and generosity, proceeds from the sale of May Gibbs products have supported thousands of Australian children with disability and their families.
