The Thermal Trials - Part 3 (and the end!)

Our final victim tester(!) in the thermal trials was toddler Alfie who kindly volunteered (or at least his mummy did) to try out the childs long pants.

Boy’s thermal long pants - £5.95
When we unwrapped the long pants my first thought was that they were soooo soft. Alfie made a grab for them and run off to a corner to cuddle them so I guess he thought the same thing! The next day we were heading out for a mainly outside day so we gave them a thorough test. Size wise the pants were generous but not to the point of being too big and seeing as Al isn't quite 2 yet I think the sizing is fair.

At each nappy change through the day I am pleased to say that Alfie's thighs were toasty warm and due to the lovely soft stretch of these there was no wicking from a soggy nappy that we sometimes experience with tights. When we got home it was lovely to be able to take Alfie's trousers off and let him roam around in the long pants - usually if he is wearing tights I have to take them off and put trousers back on so he doesn't slip on the wood floor, and if he is wearing legwarmers they tend to slide down with the rough and tumble of toddler play resulting in cold thighs.

 The long pants came out of their first wash as lovely as they came out of the packet and Alfie decided he wanted to wear them round the house during an 'at home' day. They proved just as popular as 'out and about' and were really comfortable for him to wear both for play and nap. After their second wash the pants still felt as they did new from the pack and fit as well too. Overall I think they are a great product and would happily reccomend them to a friend - in fact I have already!
The price point of £5.95 is a little higher than I would choose to pay but they are a really great product so I would probably stretch to it for a couple of pairs if we were going on holiday somewhere really cold or sking perhaps. (Emma R)
A huge thanks to everyone who has helped by testing out our new thermals.  We are really excited about the new range and there really is something for everyone.  Check them out at http://www.tykestights.co.uk/
