“ Brand: Disney / Type: Children's Hoodie „
There are a few bad apples out there on the market at present spoiling the Disney Club Penguin name. Fortunately, this piece of official merchandise comes directly from the Disney Store and definitely lives up to the Disney name in our tried and tested opinion.
We purchased this boy's hooded sweater in store for just under £20, and while that seems expensive, we feel we got fairly good value for money with this. You'd pay about the same for a similar quality item from Next or H&M for a little one.
The design on this jumper is highly detailed and while it looks simple at first glance, up close you realise that a lot of work has gone into this. There's a silvery-grey puffle pattern all over the black material, and it looks true to the puffle images that Club Penguin fans will be used to from the online game. The inside is black fluffy fleece material, and it feels lovely and soft. Outside they've used a sweater material, and combined it with chunky elasticated hem and cuffs. The hood is made from the same materials. To finish off the design there's an orange puffle embossed on the breast.
This jumper is a firm favourite with the grandson and he wears it A LOT. We've been washing it at least once a week since buying it around eight weeks ago, and we've been tumble drying it regularly too (usually turned inside out but sometimes we've - okay I've - forgotten to do this). The material has withstood all wear and tumble drying so far, and the motif on the front hasn't cracked or worn at all so far. The stitching all remains tight and the material looks as new all over still. We've washed out all sorts of every day stains, like chocolate and felt pens, and still the design is in tact.
For just under £20 I'm really pleased with this. It's not just a gimmicky Disney design to impress little fans, it's also a high quality item that washes and wears really well. I hope they bring out more designs in this range!
