“ Woolworths Worthit! brand of children's clothing. „
When Woolworths was closing down, I wondered in looking for cheaper toys for Christmas and didn't really give it a thought to look at their clothes for kids but I was surprised by the quality and value of them when I did actually look.
My local Woolworths had lots of kids clothes in the sale. They had packs of 10 girls knickers (pink and white) for 25p, packs of 3 T-shirts (pink, white and purple) for 25p, In the Night Garden socks, jeans, hoodies and lots more.
I ended up purchasing a fair bit and found myself stocking up on knickers for when my daughter was ready to use them as well as some socks and the packs of 3 t-shirts which I thought would be great for when she was playing around the house or doing something which would involve getting mucky and not wanting her good clothes to get dirty. I purchased the bits in sizes 3-4 and 4-5.
I still have handfuls of the t-shirts now and they wash up brilliantly. They have come in handy so many times. My daughter wears them in the garden, for painting and for playing in the sandpit. the knickers have also been a Godsend, especially for those little accidents children have when they are making their transition from nappies to big girl knickers.
I also purchased her two hoodies in bright pink and a fluffy aqua coloured jumper all for £1.00 each. These looked lovely with jeans and trainers and you would never have guessed I only paid a £1.00 each for them.
Everything washes up lovely too. No bobbles or fading. I found the clothes to be of a good quality and well made even though the clothes I purchased were just for those mucky days. Nothing has ever come unstitched and none of it looks cheap.
You are probably sitting reading this review thinking "Mmm, she has lost the plot. Woolworths closed down nearly 2 years ago" but it has reopened as an online retailer and still sells kids clothes.
Very impressive line of children's clothes and value for money. Definately worth a look online.
I shopped a lot in Woolworths but never considered buying the clothes... until I had my little boy. After a baby - every penny counts! The outlet store was huge and had a great range of clothes. I found that most of the "worth it" range was your average plain white t-shirts and plain blue jeans - not much of a variety. The Ladybird had more colours and designs.
I bought a plain t-shirt, pair of joggers and a pair of jeans. They were going into administration and so most of it was even cheaper then it would have been. For that price - I really couldn't complain. I didn't have a problem with any of the clothing - I think this is because he was too small to actually get them dirty! I did find that the quality of the shirts wasn't all that great - they were extremely thin and I wasn't comfortable in him just wearing that. Also the colouring came off on one of the joggers.
Overall I would say - for that price you really cant complain. I haven't had the chance to buy anything else as they have closed down, but would probably not go online to find like products. I did enjoy the Ladybird range better and would probably use Woolworths for electronics or other products as opposed to clothing.
when woolies were having there closing own sales i bought all sorts for my little girl and for my sisters little girl too.
we got t shirts,trouser,jeans ,skirt,socks allsorts really
could have bought enough school uniform for a yar for about £10!
there really good quality for the price you pay even better as we got them on sale at the time.
they wash and wear really well and i intend on buying more from the new woolworths website too,they really are that good.
The colors dont fade, the materials are strong and dont rip easily which makes a change for cheaper childrens ranges
They did seem to have more on the girls range of value clothes than boys although thats not a problem for me im sure it is a problem for other people so is a bit unfair but what they do have in both ranges is excellent and very much affordable for all no matter what the budget.
woolworths worth it range of baby clothes are really of high standard they do however seem to stock a lot more for girls than they do for boys which is a shame however they have an ample boys selection which includes pyjamas coats and jumpers. they also sell packs of vests and sleepsuits all of which are under ten pounds. the hat and glove sets are of real high quality definately keep your baby warm and all for just 4 pounds which is very reaonable. they sell bibs which would be alright for both boys and girls. have a lot of cute pink dresses and girls pyjamas which are all real quality for the price. socks which are unisex and aslo catered for each sex but yet again they do have more for girls which is a shame. all the clothes are of good quality and all are at reasonable prices. all the clothes are bright colours which are appealing
Woolworths well worth it brand have some good value items and some terrible value items. This review is about Woolworths well worth it range not ladybird. The well worth it range is very basic and plain and this is reflexes in the prices.
We have bought from this range girl pants £3 for 10 pairs in pink and white. These proved to be great value a good fit and they washed well. I found this great value.
We have bought girls fleeces with hoods. These were £3 each and we own purple, pink and white they do these for boys too. My daughter has worn her fleece for a year and it is still in great condition they wash wonderfully. We bought the purple one and then because we found them such good value we have ended up with three more!
We have bought the jeans but found that they were terrible. They were really baggy around the bottom and fitted badly around the waist. We returned them to Woolworths and were given a refund straight away so we cannot complain. The jeans were horrid and I would avoid them unless your child has a hung bottom and funny sized waist.
We have also bought the t-shirts for 75p these were thin material and we did not find they fitted very well so they were also returned. The t-shirts are very short in the length.
I think there are some great items in the worth it ranges such as the fleeces, which are great, but overall the range is a bit hit and misses.
The other important thing I have noticed, as the sizes are very small we have bought size 7-8 year fleeces to fit my 6 year old and she is small for her age so buy much bigger than you need!
At the time of writting this Woolworths had gone into administration so the range is now at least 10% off so it is even better value.
I have found that this range of clothes is actually not as good as I had hoped. I have brought Woolworths Ladybird clothes for a long time now and have had no issues with it all. However this brand is even cheaper and really is their value end range.
It roughly comprises of T-shirts, Jeans, skirts/shorts, and some underwear from what I have experienced in my local store.
I brought some T-Shirts for my children, as they were having an Arty day at the holiday club they attend and needed to take some old T-shirts with them for decorating. The T-shirts I got from this range were 75p each, so were really not going to break teh bank at all. They had a pretty poor selection of colours and I ended up with pale pink for my daughter and white for my son.
The trouble really started with these when I took them out of teh packet and found that although I had brought age specific products, they were miles too small for the kids to actually wear. I had to repack them and return them for products that were actually two years older in age range than the ages of my children in order for them to fit. Also take into account washing and the fact the T-shirts definitely shrink and you need to go bigger.
The jeans were pretty awful too. I tried them on my daughter and they just didn't fit her properly. The area for her bum and waist to go in was just too small and didn't cover the area properly. I had found a pair that fitted her leg length (she is average) but again it was older in the age range than her age and then coupled with the problems of a dodgy fit anyway and these were returned for a £2 refund.
The underwear faired slightly better as did the shorts but again you have to buy larger in order to fit properly.
I think a Basics Value Worth It range will only be Worth It if it actually provides a use. If you just get ill fitting, too small clothes for your money (even if it is only minimal money) it certainly makes it NOT worth it!
