They never used to split - especially not on their first child angry

Are some rubber and some latex? Does this make a difference? It's the shiny ones we've had problems with.

The only ones and I mean the only ones that haven't split for us are the cheap Woolies ones.

The worst were the Kidorable ones-don't buy them total utter rip off,lasted us 3 weeks before splitting!!!!!!!!!!!!

We buy ours from ASDA, dd also has a pair of kidorable which she has only worn a few times and has now outgrown them.

The Dunlop wellies are good and robust plus a tiny bit longer in the leg. Get them a size bigger and put the bairns in thick socks.

You can put stickers on them to jazz them up.

Okay, Dunlops, Woolies and Asda. I wonder if the fancy ones are made of something different.
Thanks smile

The fancy ones seem much thinner and flimsier and the soles are not put on very well.
The little ones can paint their own designs if you use an acrylic paint.

Now that is a very good idea!
