Sockatoos supports WellChild

Posted on the 13th December 2018

Gloucestershire baby clothing company Sockatoos will be donating a pound from each item sold to WellChild to support our work with seriously ill children and their families across the UK.

Sockatoos, which were created by mum Natalie Hull are quality all-in-one trousers with unique integrated socks for babies and children up to four years, including jeans, joggers and cords.

Made from 100 per cent cotton, Sockatoos are comfortable, durable, practical and stylish. The concept being no more socks lost in the wash, at home, at nursery, in the soft-play, in the park etc. Find out more here.

Natalie, from Cheltenham, came up with the idea when she found she was constantly losing her two baby sons’ socks.

Natalie said: “I tried tights but they were fiddly and uncomfortable, they’d grown out of baby grows, and I wondered whether it was possible to buy trousers with the socks actually attached. I wanted to put my boys in lovely jeans and joggers etc. but having the practicality of tights and comfort of rompers. However, I couldn’t find anything like this in the stores or online, so the idea for Sockatoos was born. They’re invaluable for use with baby carriers, slings and wellies as they prevent the trouser/sock gap, and they make washing so much easier. They have non-slip grips on the sole and adjustable drawstring waistbands, and they’re made of high quality fabric throughout. But most of all, they can’t be kicked or pulled off and the children are still wearing their socks at the end of the day!

“Ultimately I wanted to create a product that could help countless parents out there by making their day-to-day lives just a little easier. Being able to extend that help in some small way to parents who need it most of all is a bonus, and WellChild is the perfect partner with whom to achieve that. I am very proud to be part of their campaign – I think the work they do for poorly children is fantastic.”

WellChild Chief Executive Colin Dyer said: “Sockatoos sound a great idea and we are delighted that the company is donating a pound from each sale to WellChild. The money raised will go to support the children and families WellChild helps across the UK.”
