“ Brand: Peppa Pig / Type: Boots „
My youngest daughter is 2 years old and she is daft on Peppa Pig, my Mam was looking at the Asda website and saw these boots but found that they were out of stock on the website and in everyone of our local stores so ended up buying her a different pair. Amazingly for Asda these boots actually came back in stock so the other boots were exchanged and finally my daughter was going to get these boots as part of her Christmas present. In the end the boots didn't make it as far as Christmas as a month or so ago when we had a bit of snow and ice my Mam ended up giving her the boots to keep her little feet warm.
The boots are from Asda but we have found that Asda tends to be a problem with character items in that if you don't buy an item quickly once it sells out it doesn't come back in stock. The boots originally cost £12.50 a pair which I thought was decent value as they were not much more than a pair of boots in the likes of Wyndsors which is supposed to be a bargain shoe shop and these ones are of course characters boots, the boots have now been reduced to £7.50 in the sale however our store hardly has any left.
As the boots are from a supermarket rather than a proper shoe shop you can only buy then in full sizes and as my daughter is in a 5 ½ we weren't sure which would be best but ended up going with the size 6's in the hope she would grow a little by the time she wore them. My daughter has been wearing these for a few weeks now and the size 6's have been fine for her and there is not too much space at the toes however she still fits into her 5 ½ Clarkes shoes perfectly too so I don't know if this may indicate that these boots could be a little on the side of small fitting.
The boots are pink in colour which is actually quite a pretty colour even those it is quite a murky shade in my opinion, the boots have a lovely fur trim around the top which is nice and soft to the touch and none of the fur has shedded at all which is great. The boots have an extra piece of leather around the back of the heel which has Peppa written on it and then there is a lovely pink velvet feel bow on the side on the fur trim which adds to the prettiness of the boots. On the side of each boot there is a picture of Peppa Pig with 2 little embroidered hearts on too, my daughter loves pointing to her boots and announcing it's pig.
The boots are fastened with a zip on the inside of the leg which my daughter is unable to do herself with her only being 2 years old although she can manage to undo it but she never takes her boots off anyway so that isn't a problem. The soles of the boots are great and even though she has been wearing these for about a month now and has insisted on wearing them just about everyday there is very little wear to the sole. The zip is nice and strong and stands up to her constantly pulling it down and us pulling it back up although I have given up pulling it back up now until she is required to walk as it has turned into a game in her eyes.
The boots are very pretty and apart from red which they don't look right with they go with just about any outfit which makes them nice and versatile. The boots are hard wearing and I can see that my daughter will outgrow them before they become worn and they must be very comfortable to wear as it is the first pair of shoes my daughter goes for and she easily walks and runs whilst wearing them. The shoes are rainproof I would say but if your child goes jumping around in puddles they will eventually get wet feet but we found her walking in rain didn't give her wet feet. The boots are easy to keep clean with a simple rub with a damp cloth and she so far hasn't got any scuff marks on them so I would say the uppers are durable too.
Best of all my daughter loves her boots and with them being a decent price I would happily buy her a similar pair when she outgrows these ones.
While we were shopping in Asda my little girl spotted these Peppa pig boots. She was very excited and asked if I would buy them for her, and as she needed some new boots I decided I would. The boots are very pretty; they are navy in colour with red polka dot detailing. The boots are rounded at the front, and there is a zip fastening on the inside of each boot. There is also a lace detail at the front of the boot, but these are just for show and finished with a bow they look very pretty. On the outside of the boot is a cute picture of peppa pig dressed in her winter warmers. It is sown in so it does not peel off, and there has been no fraying or deterioration since we have owned them. They are very simple but I find the design is perfect for small children learning to put their shoes on independently. Not only are they easy to get on and off, but my little girl can use the peppa pig detail and zip as a guide. She knows the zip need to be on the inside and peppa needs to be on the outside to see what's going on, so it helps her know which foot to put each boot on.
With similar boots we have found the front of the boot tends to sink a little, so while little one is not wearing them they look very old and worn. These boots have managed to hold the rounded front perfectly so even while sitting on the shoe rack they look attractive. As they are mainly navy in colour we find they match most outfits well, but they are definitely a boot for the winter months rather than the summer. The inside of the boot has a slight fur to it so that it keeps little feet lovely and warm even in the colder months.
We find the sizing to be true to other shoes we own. My little girl has slightly large feet for her age as she wear an infant size 8, and we have found these fit her perfectly. She has a small amount of room to grow into them and even with thick tights on they are very easy for her to get on and off herself. They sit on her feet perfectly, sometimes I find that boots are a little loose at the top, but these sit perfectly as the fur trim helps bulk them out a little so even with skinner legs they do not look too large.
These boots are made very well, and we have found them to last without any problems at all. My daughter loves her boots as they have Peppa pig on them, and so they are one of the first pairs of footwear she will reach for. The thick sole mean they are comfy for her to walk on, and she does tend to scuff her feet along the floor as she walks. Usually this means she wears the front of shoes down very quickly but these have proved to be very resistant and the front of the boot still looks perfect. The zip is also very easy to do up even for little hands. Despite my daughter opening and closing the zip over again we have found it still works perfectly. It does not become stuck in any material on the inside of the boot, so my little girl really can put them on all by herself.
There is a good amount of grip on the bottom of the shoes, which is perfect as they are aimed towards younger children. They are not waterproof so no jumping in muddy puddles with Peppa! We do find they hold water off well though so they can be worn in the rain without becoming ruined, or soaking little ones feet through. We need boots that can stand up to all weathers as we are in sunny Scotland, and these boots have stood the test of time. We have owned them for a good few months now and other than general wear and tear they are still perfect. I generally use a damp cloth or a baby wipe to give them a wipe down once in a while, and I have found this brings them back to life again.
We love these Peppa pig boots as they have lasted very well. They keep my little girls feet warm in the winter months, and although they are not completely waterproof they still provide a good amount of protection from the rain. We paid £12.50 for ours which I believe is very reasonable for a pair of boots especially character ones. They are available in sizes from infant 4 up to infant 10 so they are aimed at younger girls. My daughter is three and she absolutely adores theses boots I have to fight with her to take them off at night. I would recommend them to any little girl that loves Peppa pig!
I suggested these boots for the dooyoo catalogue, but unfortunately they seem to have added the picture for the leather version.Having a look I see they are reduced to £7.50 which is a bargain!
