It needs to be the fleecey sort rather than the pyjama sort IYSWIM and ideally not have feet in.

I've seen endless girls ones for all ages but the boys ones seem to stop at about age 5.

Any ideas? Thanks

Primark have loads for all ages, right up to adult.

Primark or Asda

I was also going to say Primark or Asda.

When i looked in Primark they only had small ones (upto about age 5) and adult ones. Maybe I'll go back and have another look to see if they have more stock in.

Asda didn't have any boys ones (but its not a very big store)

They are so massively popular this year that Asda have had ONE MILLION made. Try ordering your son's size at customer services or online and have them hold it for you. My guess is they have sold out or have more on the way.

I just looked at Asda online and they're mainly out of stock or only have one size left.

Loads on eBay if you're desperate.

YouOldSlag Sun 02-Dec-12 12:05:53

Loads on Amazon too

loads of places - M&S, Next etc all have fleece ones for boys of all ages - i bought some yesterday for my grandson

NorbertDentressangle Sun 02-Dec-12 12:21:57

lol at some of the chancers on ebay selling Primark kids ones for £22+!

I'll have another look in the shops this week and if desperate then I guess I'll try ebay. Hopefully places will get some more stock in.

Ebay, I am selling one smile. Probably a nudge small for OP and I won't link, but I'd look there first.

Tesco have packs of two starting at £9 but they're not the fleecy ones.

I managed to pick up a fleece batman onesie from Asda for my 8 year old last week for a tenner.

I ordered a nice one for ds2 from m&s yesterday for £12, next day delivery to store. I have bought a next one for ds1 (8) last month but I thought it was too pricey really. Gorgeous though and ds2 and ds3 can get the benefit!

Boden do this:-
Only up to 7-8 though

Matalan had some online last week, but they are gone now! Might have some in the shop. Peacocks had one with footballs on in the window the other day.

NorbertDentressangle Sun 02-Dec-12 14:21:59

Local Matalan only had smaller sizes. No Peacocks around here (thought they'd gone bust??)

accessorizequeen - yes! M&S have fleecy ones on their website! If I don't have any luck instore at our nearest city branch tomorrow I'll order one of those online. Don't suppose you know what the sizing is like do you -DS is a small/average 8 so do I go for a 7-8 (and probably only get a few months wear out of it) or 9-10 (and risk him being swamped grin)

accessorizequeen Sun 02-Dec-12 14:30:13

I bought 7-8 for my ds, he's 6 but biggish. I think m&s is really small. Doesn't matter if its a bit big as the ankles are tight, IMO. Hope you find something!

NorbertDentressangle Sun 02-Dec-12 15:08:19


If I can't get one instore tomorrow I'll order the 9-10 online.

(to think that 6 months ago when I first saw onesies I was thinking how awful they were and wondering who on earth would buy them...... and now I'm trying to track them down for the DC for Xmas. I've told DP that I'll kill him if he buys me one...joke or not!)

DoIgetastickerforthat Sun 02-Dec-12 15:14:44

M&S had some on their website last night.

NorbertDentressangle Mon 03-Dec-12 15:14:33

Update - well it seems that the retail industry don't think boys will want to wear onesies after the age of 5 (or wear slipper boot type slippers but thats another story!!)

Tried Primark (upto age 5 only), Asda (none), Tesco (none), M&S in store (toddler only), Matalan (toddler only).

When I asked in M&S the lovely lady sent me over to the ordering desk as she knew there were some still in stock on the website so I've ordered 2 different sizes to be sure.

Now to track down boys slipper boots.........(is it too early for a mulled wine!? wink)

I got one last week from Next, size 7 blue fleece one with stars.

I have a 9 yr old camo one I'm just about to ebay, I wonder if this means everyone will want it or nobody will want it? LOL

Next do the fleecy ones, have just bought a couple for my nephew, he is aged 6 but they go all the way up to age 16 or so I think?

peeriebear Tue 04-Dec-12 12:42:28

Next have footless thick fleecy ones with monkey tails and hoods with ears, among other styles. I bought one for DD2 last week and they had loads.
