Pumpkin Patch is a chain store based in Auckland, New Zealand that mostly focuses on the design, marketing, retail, and wholesale of children’s clothing primarily in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The company also sells its products through mailorder catalogue and Internet.
The brand gained media attention in Australia when three-year-old Qian Xun Claire Xue was abandoned by her father Nai Yin Michael Xue at Melbourne's Southern Cross Station after he had murdered her mother and fled Auckland. Until she was identified, Claire was nicknamed "Pumpkin" after the Pumpkin Patch clothing she was wearing.
