Questions about Hanna Andersson
The best source of information about Hanna Andersson clothing is, of course, the Hanna Andersson website at www.hannaandersson.com. But here's a size chart for convenience and a few lesser-known tidbits.
What size is my Hanna Andersson item?[Back to Top]
Hannas run in cm with approximate age/height/weight ranges, as follows:
Are there discount codes available for the Hanna website?[Back to Top]
There were several 20% off codes out last year, and one came out in August 2005 that expired late September. None are known of right now. The BIG SALE is twice a year, the Winter sale usually begins around December 21st and the Summer sale around the second week of June.
What if I want a Hanna item that's no longer on the website?[Back to Top]
If it's recent and you have the catalog featuring that item, plug the item number into the search box at the top left of any Hanna Andersson website page. If it's still available, it will come up, and often, if it is still available, it's discounted! It is worth bookmarking the page if the item is available but not in the size you need, keep checking back. We've had a very good suggestion to add catalog item numbers to our recent items pictured on the site - when time permits, we will start adding them to newer items. Other than that, try eBay! There are a lot of people selling both new and used Hanna items at great prices.
What is a "special make" Hanna item?[Back to Top]
Hanna "special make" items are sometimes seen at the Hanna outlet stores. They are clothing made from leftover fabric from past seasons. While they have the same quality fabric and same print as the regular catalog or store items, they often feature a simpler construction and/or a different cut. They can be identified by "sp mk" preceding the description on the hang tag. While they are a great opportunity to own Hanna at a bargain price, eBay buyers should be aware of what they are buying and ask any necessary questions of the seller. A seller should disclose whether an item is a "special make" but may not know, or may omit the fact when listing. Compare these two dresses, Top 2 photos show the catalog/store A Thousand Flowers dress; Bottom 2 photos show a "special make" dress in the Thousand Flowers fabric.
What is that piece of twill tape sewn on the side seam of my Hanna item?[Back to Top]
It's a place to write your child's name. To date, we have never come across a Hanna with a child's name on that tag! In 2004, Hanna tried out a long, solid red label that had a place to write your child's name on the back. It was short-lived (reportedly because customers complained it was scratchy) and they've returned to a large white tag.
What does my clipped, cut, or marked Hanna label mean?[Back to Top]
Reportedly, the variously defaced tags are decoded as follows:
Who runs this site?[Back to Top]
We are not contacts for, representative of, or in any other way affiliated with the Hanna Andersson company. We're just folks who really love the clothes and are grateful for well made, super cute products for our kids.
Why?[Back to Top]
Knowing the style and print names for your Hanna items will help you - and me - find the items we need from the hundreds of Hanna clothing items available on eBay and other auction sites (as well as from the company itself) as well as help direct buyers to your auction when you've got something to sell. We provide color name information on each line ID page so you can know which basics will match which lines, which is really useful as Hanna repeats many colors year after year.
If I'm reselling an item on eBay, do I really need a print and style name?[Back to Top]
If it's more than a few years old, the print name has probably been forgotten by anyone who cared about it. Even with current lines, some are sought after by names more than others. For sought-after current lines, though, a print name can really increase traffic to your auction! There are lots of people who want, for example, Jewel Box tights to go with the dress they got last year, or who want the Summer House dress now that they have the cardigan. Check out our Print IDs page for some help!
As styles go, some have no name but Hanna offers many of the popular styles year after year, and it is worth knowing the style name for many of them: the famous Playdress/Daydress sets, Long and Short Johns, Baby Zippers, Wiggle Pants, Swedish sweats, tights and clogs, the list goes on. Check out our Style IDs page for some help!
Why isn't the item I have included on this site?[Back to Top]
Hanna has been around 25+ years, so we aren't even going to attempt to show every print and style name. We'd like to keep this site a useful tool by not including print IDs older than 2000. See our tag library to determine if your item is too old to be included on our site. In addition, this site is limited to ID of children's Hanna items.
Where do you get the images used on this site? Should I send you my pictures?[Back to Top]
None of our images are taken from the Hanna Andersson website or catalog. We rely on our own extensive wardrobe and permissions from other Hanna fans like you. Don't be surprised if you get an email from me asking if I can use your eBay auction photo! We will never use them without your permission.
