“ Brand: Asda / Type: Boots „
When we came across these wellingtons in Asda I decided to buy them. To be honest my son does like toy story, but he was not a huge fan. The reason I decided to pick these up is because they were reduced to just £2. With many pairs of shoes from the George range I knew they were good quality and so couldn't walk past a bargain. Despite my son not being a huge toy story fan he was happy to add these boots to his collection. They have a large picture of woody on the side of the boot so he was instantly able to recognise the character branding on the boot.
They are bright blue in colour with a large woody sitting on the outside of each boot. We found these wellingtons matched most of my son's outfits which was handy, and he really enjoyed the design showing everyone his woody boots. He was a little disappointed there was no buzz but this was soon forgotten. They are of course made to be waterproof as they are wellington boots and we have never had any problem with them leaking or not performing well.
I find the sizing of these boots to be a little big. They are fine on my son's feet and the size 8 seems true to the other pairs of shoes we own. What we did find is that the leg of the boots is a little wide. My son does have thin legs but without his trousers tucked into his boots these are baggy on his legs and that put him off a little. This was perfect for our days out as it kept his trousers from becoming messy, but even when his trousers were tucked in there was breathing space so he could move around easily.
It does have a large heel so they are comfy enough for my son to walk in. He has worn them a number of times for visits to local farm parks where we know it will be muddy and he needs to keep his feet dry for long periods. There were no complaints at all when he needed to walk around for a large period of time so I believe they must be comfy enough. There is no wearing down of the sole and they have enough grips at the bottom of the boot to keep my son steady even on the slippery surfaces. They are hard wearing. My son tends to drag his feet a little but these boots showed no sign of wearing down. They did scuff a little but this was un noticeable unless you were up really close. Of course because of the rubber materials the boots can be wiped down very easily even with a huge amount of mud on them and they come up brand new again.
They lasted very well as my sons feet were growing fast he did grow out of them rather quickly. Being in sunny Scotland we still managed to get a fair amount of use out of these boots, especially for the small price I paid. We actually donated these boots to my son's nursery after we had use out of them as they were still in fantastic quality and they are always looking for wellingtons for the children to help with the school garden. We only paid £2 for these wellingtons which I think are fantastic for the months they lasted us. Usual retail is around £9 which I would be happy to pay for as I always find the quality high. I believe this particular design is exclusive to Asda so they will need to be purchased there. I would certainly purchase another pair if I came across them as my youngest son adores toy story and I know he would just love them.
My little lad is a bit of a Toy Story fan , on and off. He has some Dunlop wellies but he also has his favourite wellies, which are his Woody Wellies, based on the film Toy Story. We bought these from Asda for £6 for the pair and as soon as we put them on him we had a right old job in getting him to take them off.
They are a nice shade of blue and have the design of Woody on the side and a blue trim around the top edge. They are a good quality little welly but I think they could do with coming a bit higher up on his leg. As he's grown taller his feet don't seem to have grown in comparison to his height, which means that they wellies appear shorter than they were when we bought them for him. If it's deep snow outside, rather than just a few rain puddles he wants to splash in, then we tend to try to persuade him to wear his Dunlop wellies instead, as they come higher up his leg.
However, these are the wellies he prefers to wear say if I am walking him to school and it's raining as he thinks they look more trendy than the Dunlop ones. They are getting a bit small for him now though and we are finding that he's having to wear a thinner sock with them. They are not lined inside, it's just the basic welly so his feet are prone to getting a bit cold now he's wearing the thinner socks.
Overall a nice looking little welly but they could do with having a bit more leg length and they are durable as he never seems to have them off his feet.
Me and my boyfriend bought these in a mad rush last christmas after his 3 year old son Tay came to stay with him one weekend. As my boyfriend lives opposite Cleethorpes beach, we thought it'd be nice to take him on little walks down there with us to wear him out!!
The boots are definetly aimed at kids! They come in a cute allover royal blue colour with a picture of well known cowboy Woody from toy story which most kids will recognise. There's badge like shapes around the boot with 'woody' in white writing and a yellow ring around them - there's loads which go allover the boots. At the bottom, on the edges of the sole is a row of Bull skulls. (not as scary as it sounds!)
They're easy for Tay to pull on himself with little help and he really loves the picture of woody! Whenever he sees them he babbles on for an hour or so about what happens in toy story etc and pretends he's a cowboy, bless! The wellies came just below his knee and he was able to bend etc in them; they're not solid, hard wellies, they're nice and soft but have thickness to them.
Durability and Comfort:
Tay seemed to enjoy wearing them and showed no signs of discomfort. The shoes when holding them are very light weight. He was able to run about in them with no issues. Down the beach the wellies got absoloutly filthy! Mud, sand, seaweed the lot!
The soles were thick mud and he did complain that they were getting heavy so i got an empty dog-poo bag and got most of the mud out of the sole which was easy and resolved the problem. They were definetly waterproof as when we got home and got them off Tay, his feet and socks were still dry as a bone. Although they're one-size around the leg and slip ons they fitted him well and he didn't slip out of them or anything.
Options and Sizing:
The boots are available in plain blue or the toy story pattern. We only got the toy story pattern as it was actually cheaper than the plain ones! The toy story woody ones were £4, while the plain were £7. Tay definetly enjoyed the Woody drawing on them! They start at age 4, while Tay is only 3. They seemed a tiny bit big on him around the toes because obviously his feet aren't the size of a 4 year old's but considering that they seemed to fit well. They go up to aged 9. I'd say that these wellies are best for little boys but girls who like toy story may also like them; i'm sure there are more girly colours available though!
Lovely little wellies for your todder/small child, the kids will love them due to the pattern. They fit well and look nice on, at £4 they're a total bargain!
I bought these for my youngest son in the autumn as we have such beautiful weather in the UK (Haha) and it seems to rain pretty much all of the time!
I bought them in Asda for the bargain price of £6!
My son is in Nursery class at school and even after it has been raining and the playground is full of puddles the children are still allowed to play outside. At the beginning of the term I didn't really take into consideration that they would be out playing in puddles and on a few occasions, my son has come out of school with soggy shoes and socks!
He already had wellies and when he has them on he pretty much refuses to take them back off! Typical boy! And I really, absolutely hate the plasticky smell of wellies so I had been on the look out for a pair with a more rubbery texture and not so plastic like. On a shopping trip to Asda I popped upstairs to the clothing section as I usually do, and whilst browsing through the kids section I came to the footwear. There hanging on the rail were these fantastic Woody wellies that I knew my son would adore.
I grabbed a pair and rushed off to find my hubby and son who were downstairs looking at the computer games. As soon as my son saw the wellies he practically climbed out of the trolley, sat on the floor, took off his trainers and said 'I love them wellies mammy'!
So he put them on there and then and was so happy that it was raining out so he could give them a try!
After paying for the shopping and giving the cashier the tag from the wellies, I led my son outside, where he proceeded to jump in every puddle he could. What a better way to test them?
Anyway upon getting home, his tootsies were dry and warm and I was very pleased with the £6 spent, and another great thing was that they didn't have the harsh strong plastic smell! Yayy!!
They have had plenty of use throughout the autumn and winter and are worn for wet playtime out the playground in school. He takes them in and changes his shoes when it is time to go out.
Considering the amount of use they have endured they are still in fantastic condition and the soles have held out really well. I'm not really shocked by this however as they look nice and chunky and because they are more rubbery than plastic they seemed to have more sturdiness about them.
Not only are they durable, they look fab! They do look exactly like the picture shown so there's not much point of me going into too much detail. However the Woody picture is simply stuck on and this is quite obvious, not that it takes away from the fabulousness of the wellies in all fairness.
My son has never complained when wearing them so I am guessing they are quite comfortable to wear and they look and feel quite comfy, especially compared to the plastic type wellies.
Overall I am very happy with these and will be keeping a close eye out for more when they come into store ready for next winter! They also held out brilliantly in the snow!
Every toddling child should have a pair of wellies to hand, especially in the winter weather!! I have thrown out many a pair of trainers because of soaking wet toes, so i though that once my son was sturdy enough on his feet i would buy him a pair.
Now those of you that have children will know how quickly thier feet grow as smaller tots, nd i refuse to pay masses of money on lots of shoes when they grow out of them so quickly. I have to say though, that when they first begin to cruise and toddle, it is worth getting their feet measured properly, as quite often our little beauties have wider feet than when they are a little older.
Weelies are those shoes/boots that i dont find ever fit exceedingly well, they can either be a little too hight up the leg, or loose around the ankle which is why i waited until my son was stable on his feet for risk of him toppling over!!
I was wandering wround Asda which i find is very good for clothes for value and quality anyway and picked up a pair of royal blue plain wellies for £4 - bargain i thought. As i continued down the aisle, my son spotted these Woody wellies. At first i was going to walk straight past them, with the thinking that they would be twice the price at least,especially as the world seems to have gone Toy Story mad (Thankyou Toy story 3 - i never run out of gift ideas now!!). My son wanted to have a look, and when i picked them up and noticed the £6 price tag, i straight swapped them for the plain navy ones. - Bargain, and at least i knew i wouldnt have any problems getting him to wear them!!
These are made of the typical 'welly material' and i would suggest going for the same size or even a size down from your childs actual shoe size as they come up on the larger side. They again are blue in colour with the 'woody' motif scattered all over the boot, and full size picture of a very proud looking woody on the outer edge of each boot weraing his cowboy kit strutting it with his hands on his hips!!
There is a good amount of tread on the base, great for mud and snow, and on my sons feet, they are almost knee legnth, so great for tucking trousers in and puddle jumping!!
The inner lining is of a grey - like fabric, not particularly comfortable to be fair, and it does seem to dirty fairly easily, but to be fair once socks are on, and trousers are tucked into them, it doesn't really pose a problem.
These wellies go dog walking, to nursery, to the park, down the beach and for lolling in the garden. Easily sponged down, a perfect addition to my sons ever growing shoe collection!!
5/5 for quality and price!
Great work Asda and Woody of course!
The world has gone Toy Story mad. Again. And again I have a small child who wants the Woody and Buzz 'stuff'. It was the same with the first two films as my older girls' wanted the toys and pyjamas, now the next installment is out and three year old Hollie's eyes are drawn to anything from the Toy Story brand in any shop we happen to be in.
I refuse to buy the toys as she has far too many already, so she's resigned now to recycling (aka. claiming!) her sisters' old Toy Story stuff, but when she asked for these wellies in Asda I couldn't say no.
They are standard childrens wellies with absolutely nothing to set them apart from any other brand apart from the Woody decoration. Each wellie has a full length picture of Woody on the outside with the entire wellie being covered in small 'Woody' [logo] motifs. They look as cowboy like as any pair of blue wellies could look, with Asda adding a row of (spooky looking) cow heads along the sole. I think these wellies are quite smart, although possibly designed to be more suitable for a boy than my uber girly looking daughter.
The wellies come up slightly higher than Hollies previous pair of Dora wellies, which is a bonus as it keeps more of her legs dry when she's messing around in the water or snow. They're waterproof (obviously, but not always true when it comes to kids wellies) and as far as I can tell they don't let any water in, Hollies socks are usually dry when she takes the wellies off but occasionally they do get a bit damp. This could be due to water getting in at the top of the welly, but even if this is the case it could be solved because I think the wellies definitely gape too much at the top and a more slimline design would keep even more water out.
The sizes are correct, Hollie is a size nine and this size welly fits her perfectly with extra room for socks. I've bought Asda wellies for the kids before and have always been impressed with the accuracy of the sizing, I wasn't disappointed with these and they're a really nice fit all round. The sole is quite thick and I swear Hollie looks a little bit taller in these wellies, it's not my imagination! It's not! The grips are deep and there was no sliding around when we had all that snow over Chrimbo - no sliding unless Hollie wanted to I should say!
The inner is shinier than I'd have liked them to be, and that's not such a trivial criticism as it sounds. The shininess obviously helps the wellies to be waterproof but Hollie always says they feel cold when she first puts them on. They feel very rubbery inside and I think if they were my wellies I'd want them to have more of a fabric feel for comfort, they don't make her feet sweat though so it must be good quality rubber!
£6 from Asda.
Buying shoes for kids is a bit like painting the Forth bridge; a neverending task! Each child need school shoes, trainers/pumps, formal shoes, sandals in the summer and a pair of wellies for the winter. It is no surprise then, that when we get a bit of snow and I drag the wellies out from the bottom of the big shoe box, that generally, the kids have all gone up a shoe size and I need to buy new ones. This was the case recently, which was the reason for my buying this rather fetching pair of Woody Wellie boots from Asda, for my little one, who is five years old.
Where we live in the Midlands could hardly be described as beautiful rolling English countryside, so our wellie use tends to be limited to snowy days or the occasional walk in the woods (yes, we do have a bit of woodland in Walsall!). This, combined with the fact that my kids feet are growing at a ridiculous rate means that it is not worth me shelling out piles of cash on expensive wellies for the kids, especially the youngest, as he hasn't any younger siblings to pass them down to. I tend to get the kids wellie boots from Matalan or Asda, as I find that they have a really nice range of boots, which are cheap, well made, hardwearing and colourful.
When I was in Asda, this pair of boots caught my eye for obvious reasons. Anyone who has read my reviews will know that we are big Toy Story fans, and my little one absolutely adores Woody, having his own Woody costume and Woody doll. They were reasonably priced at £7, so I snapped them up there and then. When my little boy got back from school and saw them, he got really excited, and wore them round the house all afternoon!
The boots are absolutely lovely, and a real treat for young Toy Story fans. The boot is a good height for protecting the bottom part of the leg from mud and splashes, and come a lot higher than his previous wellies. The boots are made from rubbery waterproof material and the whole boot is cobered in small "Woody" logos. The outer side of the boot has a rubber cutout cartoon picture of Woody stuck to it, which runs down the whole length of the boot, and the cutout gives the picture a 3D effect. To continue the western theme, the boot has a row of buffalo head shapes running along the bottom, just above the base, which gives a nice contrast in colour and pattern to the rest of the boot.
The sole of the boot has a really deep tread, perfect for snowy days! There are small shallow horizontal tread lines along the toe and heel of the sole, an the reast of the sole is covered in a very deep, zigzag shaped textured tread, which is great for preventing slipping. My son has a tendency to trip over a lot, because he has problems with co-ordination, so anything that helps him stay upright on a slippy path is a big bonus. There was a warning recently in the paper that a lot of people were having acidents in the icy weather because they were wearing trainers or normal shoes, whereas a wellie boot, with its deep tread is a much more sensible option. The sole is attatched firmly to the rest of the boot, with no danger of it coming away. In the few months that we have had the boots, the soles have shown no signs of wear at all.
The inner part of the boot is made of plain white fabric, and the insole is the same. The insole has no padding, but my son has not complained about feeling uncomfortable walking in these boots. in fact, quite the contrary. They have ample room around the tyoes, and do not slip when he is wearing them. Also we have not had that annoying problem you sometimes get with wellies, when they work your sock off your foot as you walk in them! They also support his foot as he walks, so he doesn't "roll in" as he walks, which can be an issue with some boots.
As I have mentioned, my son has co-ordination problems, and dressing can be a real challenge for him. I am glad to say that these wellies have been really easy for him to take on and off himself and give him a measure of independence when getting ready for school. Sometimes wellies can be tight and hard to remove, but these were very easy, without being too loose to walk in.
The wellies got put through their paces in the snowy weather, with lots of walking to and from school every day, as well as long sledging sessions on the hills at the back of our house. The wellies did a great job at keeping his feet warm and dry and protecting the bottom of his school trousers from getting wet, which would have been horrible for him to have to sit in all day.
I have nothing bad to say about these boots. they are very well made, sturdy, and of course, nice and cheap, as well as looking great. The only downside to them is that they would probably be a bit babyish to kids over 6, but kids 5 and under will love them. Also, the design and colour of the boots make them more geared towards boys, which I think is a bit of a shame, because girls love Woody too! Of course, there is nothing stopping girls wearing these if they want to.
I love these Adsa Woody boots and recommend them to anyone with kids 5 and under who love Toy Story. I know that when my son outgrows these, they will still be in good condition to pass on to another child.
