Kate's Review: We love getting into the 'trick or treat' mood and always dress up with great excitement for Halloween fun in our village. Unfortunately, we regularly have to cover our outfits up with coats, hats, scarves etc... so it was fantastic to see a coat such as this which is not only highly visible and in-keeping with a fun Halloween theme, but also extremely warm and cosy.  No soggy trick-or-treaters this year!  My son (6) has been wearing the coat to school with great pride for a few weeks now and SO many mums and children have commented on it.  A great feature, in my view, is that the hood is detachable and has a peak which offers complete rain protection (many rain jackets just seem to cover the top of the head).  A lovely winter coat!


Festival Footwear from BOGS

The UK festival season is fast approaching, and despite best hopes for a dry and sunny summer, it is likely downpours will be inevitable, resulting in muddy fields and damp and soggy feet!  Perfect for the changeable conditions of the British summer, BOGS® lightweight summer wellington boots provide necessary protection from the wet, when showers and downpours are never far away. With fresh prints and vibrant colours that work well in the rural and urban outdoors, BOGS® boots are constructed from the latest technology to offer unbeatable comfort, durability and style - and are more robust than many other “fashion wellies” on the market.

Emma's Review: We tested out a fabulous pair of red BOGS (pictured) for my son in a size 4 and he instantly loved them. When wearing wellington boots, he has always suffered with cold feet and has to wear them with multiple layers of socks! Not so with the BOGS boots, they were extremely warm. We have an allotment and often spend all day outdoors - I am happy to report that the boots have stood up to the task in all weathers (hot and cold). Of course, they are more expensive than 'normal' wellies but we would definately look to buy replacements when he has grown out of this size.

Rachel's review: The t-shirt booth App is easy to download. Attractive and easy to use, you select your choice of character then size of t-shirt and choose a background colour and upload a photo with choice of name underneath. Payment is via paypal and the order arrives via Royal Mail very quickly. The t-shirt quality is good and sizing is accurate. The picture quality will be lost slighty so make sure the photo is clear to start with. This is a great idea for a unique, reasonably priced gift. There is a helpline if needed and the customer service is outstanding.

Simply Colors personalised clothing

"Really impressed by the ease of use of the Simply Colors website and the quality of the personalised items.  You can select the colour, font and picture for the clothes - back and front - and there is a huge range to choose from.  The website was simply to use and I had great fun changing the design until I was happy.  Particularly impressed by the quality of all the items, I have the T-shirt and large messenger bag for Alice and both are finished really well with nice touches like tags on the outside too that make these items look great.  I will update my review when I've washed everything.  I will definitely be using them for presents for nieces and nephews this year!"

"The Simply Colors website is simple, easy and quick to use.  The range of products available is limited but they offer a wide range of colours and illustrations.  Overall I think the quality of the product is high and reasonably priced.  The personalised t-shirts and hooded tops are a great idea for a gift - unique, thoughtful and easy to send in the post!".
