With the new school term almost upon us, I’ve teamed up with Asda’s Tonypandy store to showcase their new back to school range.
Like many parents we don’t like to spend a fortune on new school uniforms, but at the same time we want to ensure that the items we buy for our children are good quality and will last them for as long as possible.
With this in mind I decided to review the following items from ASDA:
- Black Ombre Shower Resistant Hooded Jacket
- Coral Foil Print Shower Resistant Hooded Mac
- Girls White Scallop School Polo Shirt 5 Pack
- White Slim Fit School Polo Shirt 5 Pack
- Green Assorted Hair Bobbles 30 Pack
- Red 5 Piece Bow Hair Accessories Set
First up we have the polo shirts. Now, I’m a mum to six year old twin girls, but they’re both very different. M likes to wear the scallop school polo shirts because she likes the frilly collar, whereas R prefers the more traditional looking school polo shirts with a straight edge collar.
The pack of 5 girls white scallop school polo shirts cost just £6.00, and the white slim fit school polo shirt, which is also a pack of 5, costs just £7.50.
The scallop school polo shirts are 100% cotton with a button fastening, and the thing that I and the majority of parents I imagine will like most about these shirts is that they’re stain release and have ‘Stay White’ technology to keep them looking whiter for longer.
These shirts fit well, and they really do last wash after wash. I also like that they don’t lose their shape, even after being washed numerous times.
The white slim fit school polo shirts are equally as good as the girls scallop shirts. I really like the slim fit design as they fit really well, and again they have the same ‘Stay White’ technology as the scallop shirts.
Next up we have the jacket and mac. Like most school children, our girls aren’t very keen on wearing coats! Their current coats are quite heavy and thick, which isn’t great when the weather is warmer as they’re usually too hot in them!
This is why I chose the black ombre shower resistant hooded jacket (£14.00), and coral foil print shower resistant hooded mac (£12.00). They’re both very lightweight making them ideal for summer showers.
I really like the ombre design of the hooded jacket, plus it has a mesh lining to the hood and body.
There’s also a name tag inside which is perfect for back to school!
It also has a zip fastening front with 2 zip-up front pockets. It’s lightweight, fits well and is really great quality.
The coral foil print shower resistant mac is so pretty! I love the floral design! It has elasticated cuffs, 2 front slip pockets and a zip-up fastening.
We were also sent some green hair bobbles (£2.00) and hair accessories (£4.00).
These are both available in other colours such as blue, but R opted for the green bobbles, and M for the red hair accessories.
They’re both very well made, plus I think they look great too! They’ll certainly keep their hair in place when doing P.E and playing football!
Overall, I have to say that I’m very pleased with all of the products from ASDA. The clothes are all very well made, great value for money and will last all term, if not longer. Thank you ASDA!
