New Zealand Girl Guide Uniforms

New Zealand Girl Guide Uniforms are bought on a mix and match basis.

Pippins wear ordinary clothes and have a navy or aqua popover - this is a 2 sided apron like children wear for painting at preschool, but it is of material not plastic.

Brownies wear either a aqua Brownie T-shirt with a navy Sunshine design or the GGANZ polo shirt that Guides, Rangers and Adults wear. They wear a sash with their badges on. Their other uniform options are the same as the others.
