Just before Christmas we had taken a lovely walk out to Hilbre Island on a really sunny but cold day. Half way out to the Island we realised that one of the kids boots had split and were leaking, and another pair were just too short to stand up to the walk through the sea. Queue old boots thrown in the bin on our return home and new boots were needed. Muddy Puddles helpfully sent us these fab Puddlestomper Wellies to try and I have to say the kids are thrilled with them. They are described on the website as having grippy soles to stop slipping in mud and being fully lined for cosy toes. Both statements seem to be totally true.
We put them to the test this weekend as we had some friends up to stay with us from London, and we tried to spend as much of our time on the beach as we could. We spent an afternoon on Formby Beach, and had a failed attempt to see the Gormley statutes on Crosby Beach (it was dark, raining and cold by the time we got there) but we did have a lovely time on Sunday morning on our local beach in Hoylake on the pirate ship. When you’re five and under who needs much more than some wellies and a pirate ship!
