The range is designed with both kids and parents in mind. It is pocket friendly, with all items coming in at £3 or under. It is also child friendly, with extra effort put into easy fastenings, soft comfortable fabrics, and no scratchy labels. The latter is especially important if you have a child like mine who is extra sensitive to itchy/spiky bits on clothes. There are also pre-attatched name labels- yay!
In terms of fit- the trousers have an adjustable waist so will grow with them over the year. I got the age 10-11 for Max as he turns 10 in October, and is slightly tall for his age - they are a little long- but by the time his shoes are on they will be safely off the floor- so no tattered heels for him! The shirt fits really well, the socks are nice and stretchy and the plimsolls comfortable. Can't fault it- well made, fits well, Max likes it, and so far easy to wash - top marks.
The Nutmeg range also includes sweatshirts and cardigans, but as with a lot of schools, ours insists on its own logoed items, only available through the school, and at a considerably higher price than the Morrisons range. I have to say this behaviour from schools does bug me a bit, as we all need to watch the pennies at the moment.
We were also sent a few bits of essential stationery. As Max is moving up to middle school he will now be in need of a proper scientific calculator, as well as a maths set. He will also need to start using ink for all his work, as opposed to pencil, so the Berol handwriting pen will be a good starter cartridge pen for him. The Morrisons back to school stationery range offers good value, the maths set is just a pound, and the calculator £3. I just wish they did something to help me when the inevitable moment comes when I can no longer understand his maths homework....
So we are nearly ready now, we bought our school shoes yesterday, and have the fab Morrisons uniform hanging up and ready to go. Haircuts next week and we will be set, bring on September....(I need some peace...)
