Isn`t social media amazing??
I first `met` the great team at el Rhey through twitter; purely by chance I came across their twitter account and realised they were only down the road from me in Bournemouth.
el Rhey are a new company hoping to take the outdoor clothing sector by storm with their customisable products. The first of many products to be launched is their ColourMe Wellies.
These wellington boots are made from super-soft rubber and come in a choice of either a moth or zebra design ready for you to let your budding picasso`s loose on. The idea is to let your children colour them in as they want and so in turn wear them more often.
Each pair of boots is supplied with 3 dual ended permanent pens of various colours. One end has a broad nib for large area colouring and the other end is thin which can be used for fine detailing.
Because the pens are permanent you really need to colour the boots in on a covered table or on an old towel, and adult supervision is required at all time when using the pens to ensure the kids dont draw on themselves instead of the boots!!
el Rhey kindly offered Alfie the chance to try a pair of these cool boots to see what he thought of them.
When I told him about these boots he was really keen to get his hands on them and start scribbling. He took a good hour or so to finish them which was great as not many things keep his attention for long.
The only downside to these boots that I have found is the amount of pens and the colours provided. Alfie was ok to use the pink colour but would of preferred a blue or black pen, saying that he decided to colour the front of both boots in pink!!
Typically we haven`t had any good rain to test these beauties out in so we christened them at the beach.
These boots are an amazing idea as it helps nurture your child`s creative side in creating a work of art that they can wear anywhere.
Prices start at £20 for the boots and pens, all in a drawstring bag or £25 for the boots, pens and colouring book of all the artwork created in the design of the boots and a lovely keepsake box.
Keep your eyes peeled for the launch of the next product in el Rhey`s impressive range. It`s amazing, I have been privileged enough to see it months before launch and all I can say is "WOW"!

I was given a free pair of boots in exchange for a true and accurate review of the product.
