Helping our customers make informed decisions
As any child between the age of five and fifteen will tell you, the half-term break is fast approaching. Yes, you may have only just recovered from Christmas, but next week they’ll spill out of the school-gates and be ready to run wild once again. Here are our top buys to ensure your little ones make the most of their time off.
Although a seaside paddle may still be a few months off, a day out at the local pool is sure to entertain your brood (and hopefully wear them out nicely too!). With an elasticated, drawstring waist and in a choice of three colours, these Cargo Bay Boys Hawaiian Print Swimming Shorts are perfect for young swimmers looking to take to the water, and this vibrant Heart Prink Halterneck Swimming Costume is ideal for girls who want to stand out from the crowd.
Whilst spring may (finally) be rearing its head, there’s no guarantee that Mother Nature’s going to give us an easy ride as we slide into summer. So, whilst you’re planning your next big adventure, slip these B&C Sirocco Lightweight Jackets into their backpacks. Designed with the K-Way system, they’re easy to fold into the small pouch attached to the jacket, making it the perfect answer to an unexpected rain shower. Trust us, you’ll thank us later.
Whatever your kids are passionate about, half-term is the perfect time to indulge their interests. If you’ve got a budding baker in the family, brighten up the kitchen (and protect their clothes!) with the Premier Kids Bib Apron. For the sportier youngster, these Lotto Spider Football Boots are sure to go down a treat, with a Velcro fastener and six removable studs making them ideal for the pitch. If your little ones are more interested in ballet than the ball, these Full Foot Silky Dance Tights will ensure they’re ready to take to the stage.
If the idea of entertaining your kids for a whole two weeks has already got you biting your nails then there’s no sense in waiting until half-term winds down to buy your back-to-school supplies. With a stylish black finish and Velcro straps for security, these Mirak school shoes are perfect for their return to the playground, and in both boys and girls styles there’s something for everyone. P.E. supplies are also sorted thanks to this kids Unisex Sport Polo Shirt and these Shadow Stripe Sports Shorts, and this smart Quadra Kids Backpack is perfect for keeping their belongings safe and sound during the hustle and bustle of the school run.
