He gets quite hot so not necessarily a very warm one. He'll be 'camping' inside with the Beavers. But we will prob use it in the future for sleepovers and possibly camping when ds2 is older.

Don't want to spend too much as money is an issue.
I think he'd like this
does it look like it would be ok or rubbish?!

My 4 year old (who also gets quite hot) has this one from Go Outdoors. Quite a nice colour too grin.

If money is an issue, then I wouldn't get a junior sleeping bag as he will grow out of it quickly. If he sticks with beavers/cubs etc he will get good use out of a full size one over time.

My 7yr old DS and 3rd old DD sleep in adult sized sleeping bags (my old ones as I always get cold and bought a super snug new one - they are toasting in my old ones before I sound like a very mean mummy!).

If you have a "Go Outdoors" near you there is a sale on at the moment and we just picked up a fairly lightweight one for DS for £3.99! Bargain.

Thanks everyone smile I'll find out if we have a Go Outdoors smile
If we don't do the Argos ones look ok?
And I'll get adult not kid size smile
