What are kids wellies made from?
With unpredictable weather and a lot of outdoor playtime, you never know when the kids will need to throw on a pair of wellies. Whether it’s playing in the garden, building sand castles at the beach, running around in muddy parks or jumping in puddles, it’s important to find great wellies for their wardrobe.
But first, you might be wondering what kids' wellies are made from? Children's wellies are usually made of rubber or polyvinyl (PVC), with most manufacturers turning towards using a more environmentally-friendly rubber as of late. Most are made of high-quality material designed for durability, comfort, and keeping your child's feet warm and dry.
WHAT MATERIALS ARE USED
Wellies are made to be waterproof. As with any shoe though, the quality and type of material used can vary. Some are made of high-quality rubber, and others made from recycled plastic. More often than not, they’re made of halogenated polymer, PVC, or rubber.
WHERE DOES THE MATERIAL COME FROM?The natural rubber used in making Wellington boots comes from latex sap that is excreted from the rubber tree, also known as Hevea brasiliensis–this tree mostly grows in tropical areas. On the other hand, materials that are made of polyvinyl chloride come from a synthetic material.
WHAT STYLES ARE AVAILABLE FOR KIDS?Wellies come in different shapes and sizes, ranging from knee high boots down to shorter styles, like the Chelsea boot. At Merry People, we offer kids ankle wellies.
WHERE CAN KIDS WEAR THEIR WELLIES?
Wellies don't just have to be worn in wet weather, they can be worn every day and for a wide range of activities. When choosing a pair for your child, it's great to consider what they'll be doing in their boots. For example, a toddler may have fun jumping in puddles, whereas your older child may wear them on their walk to school each day.
