So, dds crocs were nicked at the weekend at the beach . I don't want to fork out again only for the same thing to happen, so where can I get some cheapie replacements? I have tried Brantano/Next.Matalan,Asda...

Have you tried along the seafront? One of those shops selling touristy tat?

Someone stole you child's crocs?

Expat - yes! Left with our bags and stuff, while we just went down to the shore to throw stones in the water. We were only about 20 yards away at most. Nothing else was nicked luckily, but dd still had to walk to the car in bare feet...

Theyve got croc type shoes along the seafront near to the riptide gym place. They've also got alot on ebay.
How horrible for you. Some people are real scum

That's dreadful. Were you at one of the main Brighton beaches then?

We were at the beach all day Saturday too, but not at one of the more touristy ones. I have to say I was worried about stuff getting pinched too, whilst we were rockpooling I was glancing up at our stuff on & off. However, I think if someone's determined, they'll take it anyway.

Grrr!! For you.

Thanks for the tips about the seafront shops. Being residents , we don't tend to go to the beach in Brighton proper, but I will take a look...
We were by the lagoon in Hove at the weekend, coz it's not to far for the children to walk from the car, plus it doesn't get so busy. The playground and paddling pool there are fab too.
Just beware child-shoe-thieves!

I got my pushchair nicked last year in Brighton - it was outside my front door. Is there nothing they won't nick round here?

sports world do them as do some of the more lower end shoe shops.
you can get them on the beach as well.

Sportsworld, North St came up trumps. Never been in there before - it was chavtastic, but I got what I wanted .

So, hopefully these ones won't get nicked...

Furrycat, where in Bton was your buggy nicked form - that is just cr*p...
