We were recently asked if we'd like to review some clothing for The Boy. As the request came from Argos, I was more than a little surprised. They are someone I'd consider buying homeware, toys or electricals from but never clothing, and that's mainly to do with the fact that I didn't know that they did it!
The choice available was from the Argos own-brand, the new Emma Bunton range or the Chad Valley range of clothing. Chad Valley is a range that I knew from it's previous exclusivity at Woolworths (a shop that I really miss on the high street) and I was ignorant to the fact that Argos had taken over that exclusivity for both the toys and clothing lines. The clothing available is good solid, rough and tumble clothes, perfect for boys exploring their world.
I chose two items for The Boy; a red hooded cardigan from the Chad Vallery line ('perfect for those balmy Summer evenings' was my original thought. Ha!) and a pair of Peppa Pig brushed cotton pyjamas, featuring his little brother George, from the Argos own-brand range.
The George Pig pyjamas are his absolute favourite, not only because of the pattern and character subtley appliqued on them, but because they are soft and warm. Those are perfect for these
freezing 'balmy' Summer evenings. They cost £12.99 and are available from ages 18months through to 5 years. I will be buying these in the next size up because they are such good value.
The red hooded cardigan is warm and a lovely colours. He loves the colour red and is more than happy to be snuggly warm inside this. The only thing I would say about it is the size of the hood. The Boy has a got a slightly larger head than other children his age (lots of brains!) but this hood only seems to come halfway over his head barely covering his ears. Fine for most children, but not for The Boy. It's available from 12 months to 5 years and is £9.99.
