I don’t tend to go into town and browse in the shops these days. What I do instead, is sit at home, with a cup of coffee and browse online. And one website I love to browse for clothes is boohoo.com.
So I was really happy to find out that they’ve started doing clothes for children too.
The clothes are for children aged 4-12, so there’s nothing suitable for Nerys quite yet, but I had a lot of fun looking through all the options for Rhys.
And with the weather suddenly turning more wintry I was really pleased to fine a lovely warm coat for him.
The coat is really warm without being too bulky. And the colour is just lovely, a bit different from what he’s had in the past.
He’s worn it pretty much every day since it arrived and he loves it.
We bought age 5-6 and it fits him perfectly. Rhys is quite slight though, so if I had a bigger child I might be tempted to get the next size up.
We all really love the coat though, and think he did a great job modelling it for us on a recent trip to the beach!
I was also really pleased to see that the coat is machine washable. One of the reasons I wanted to get him a second coat for winter is that he often comes home from school covered in mud. So it’s important for me to be able to quickly pop a coat in the wash, while he wears the other one for a day or two!
I had wanted to get some trousers for Rhys too, but found there wasn’t much choice in that category. I’m sure more items will be added as the kids section grows, but for now we ended up choosing a couple of t shirts to add to our order instead.
The first one I chose was this grey t shirt with a spooky/cute bat on it. I liked the fact that he could wear it for halloween but it wasn’t too halloween-y. So he can get a fair bit more wear out of it.
I ordered age 5-6 again and thought when it first arrived that it might be a little small. But luckily as Rhys is pretty slim it fits him just right.
The second t shirt I chose was this baseball style one. I love this style of top, and think it looks really cute on Rhys.
The material isn’t quite standard t shirt material though, so I’m waiting to see how well it washes. For now though, I’m really happy with it. Although, like the other items we bought it is a little on the small side, which works for us but might not be great for bigger children.
All in all, I’m really pleased with my experience with boohoo’s children’s range. I would love to see more items available, but the clothes they do have are reasonably priced and we’re very happy with the quality and design of the bits we chose.
I also found that the items were delivered quickly, and were packaged up well so they arrived in perfect condition. Also, boohoo often seem to have offers on delivery so it’s worth keeping an eye out for that!
I was given credit to spend at boohoo.com, but all words and opinions are my own.
