But Splats are way better than a cartoon because they are real and they are fab!
They are boots for kids and from the minute the PR company got in touch with me to tell me about them I wanted them (so much so I would have bought them anyway even if they hadn’t sent me an evaluation pair but shhh don’t tell them that!)
I don’t know if you remember, but last winter when we were in Troon we found this great pair of boots for the little one.
She has hardly been out of these all year but you know how it is with kids – their feet do that growing thing!
So as we entered another winter I wasn’t sure what we were going to do. Then I got an email telling me about the Splats.
I was hugely lucky to be sent a pair to review. I chose green because apparently that is the little one’s favourite colour at the moment. They say their sizes are generous and so I chose the smallest they had which is a size 8 (toddler sizes obviously!)
I love the reflective strips. You can see how the flash on the camera really makes them light up.
They are robust, comfy, warm and look superb for puddle jumping (very appropriate for this weather!)
The little one loves them and I fully expect some jealousy amongst the mums at school this morning.
I have no doubt that these will last her the winter – but even if she grows out of them I will be buying more.
So now for the really good news – I have managed to get a special discount offer for the readers of this blog.
The offer is for the Retro Red version of the Splats.
They are offering 25% discount on the Retro Red Splats ONLY. The code is
redsplats25. The code will expire at the end of October.
I can’t recommend these highly enough.
Oh and if you are on Twitter you can follow @theSplats – they seem like lovely people
Apparently you can also pick up Splats from John Lewis which might be useful if you want to try them on for size first. I’m afraid if you want the discount you will have to go through the website though!
*I was sent a copy of the Splats for free to evaluate. Beyond that you have read what I think of them and not what I was told to think. If I thought they weren’t worth it, I wouldn’t recommend them at all.
