Window Shopping: 5 Puddle-Proof Kids' Wellies We Love

☔️

Splish, splash, splosh – it’s the sound of autumn and darker, wetter days drawing in. While as adults we might want nothing more than to retreat indoors and curl up on the sofa (with a glass of red, perhaps), the littl’uns can think of nothing better than playing outside.

There’s no better time, therefore, to invest in a pair of wellington boots that are both puddle-proof and pleasing on the eye. We think the brighter, the better – and dressing small humans up as animals, what’s not to love?

Check out the ones we’ve got our eyes on below.
