Tights for boys at last!

Yay! It has been a month now since we launched Tykes Tights and began our mission to bring warm legs to the young male population of Britain and I am totally relieved to say that month 1 was a success!

We even attended our first baby show and met some fantastic people. Whoever said tights for boys was a silly idea, should have taken a look at the hoardes of people surrounding our stall and flinging their cash in my direction (ok, it might not have been quite like that but I like the image it creates). It was, however, a very successful day and one of our first steps into getting Tykes Tights on the map.

We have got lots more to look forward to this month too, with more baby shows, our joint leaflet being printed and some more stock being added to the website.

Tykes Tights has turned out to be a real family affair. Mr Tyke was fab at chatting to all the customers at the baby show, and persuading the daddies that tights rock. Toddler Tyke has been hard at work too on the advertising. His major role last week was to wear his aeroplane and football tights at different social occasions. He made quite sure that fellow tumble tots got a good peek at his legwear before our last session!

Did you know that we also have knee socks for boys? They are currently on our facebook shop but will hopefully be making an appearance in a range of sizes on our main site very soon. BTW, shipping via our fb shop is free!

So, Tykes Tights have been released from their plastic prison and are loose on the streets of Britain. Keep your eyes peeled, those fab socks worn by that boy in the buggy might actually go all the way up!

  1. It is a great idea! I used to put my boy in his big sisters tights when he was a baby. I don't anymore but I think I may do again now - especially if winter is as cold as the last few have been.
