These luck chunky but are actually very light and very easy to slip on and off. The fleecy lining makes for a comfortable fit and will keep feet warm on cold winter days.

KIDS LIGHT-UP WELLIES

These brightly coloured PVC boots come with LEDs that light up when in use. The pull-on straps are designed to make it easier for children to pull on the wellies and can so be used for hanging them up after use. Available in red and blue.

KG VERDICT
Younger children will without doubt enjoy wearing these cheeky and cheerful PVC boots. They are sure to love the LEDS that flash on and off when they are walking and running, and they will also find the pull-on straps a good practical feature for pulling on their boots themselves. The soles have a good, thick tread so, in all, a very good children’s wellie, combining fun with practicality.
