Mad about Puddles

October 13, 2015

At Five Boys Clothing our top tip for new mothers of boys is this: think of them like dogs and exercise then at least once a day. It might sound a little unusual, even callous but if you get them outside playing, walking, adventuring at least once a day they’ll burn off all their energy and be more likely to sit still should you need them to.

In order to keep them undeterred in their outdoor adventuring by the cold and the damp they need good outdoor wear. Which is why we’re delighted to stock our favourite products from the brilliant Muddy Puddles.


Muddy Puddles puddleflex jacket

Here at FBC HQ we’re mothers of boys so we know how important it is to choose clothes that both mother and son like; clothing that is easy to wear and easy to have fun in which is why Muddy Puddles is the perfect fit. 

With autumn now in full swing, despite the sunshine, early mornings are chilly. The Muddy Puddles Puddleflex Jacket (£42 ages 3-12) is just the ticket for keeping warm and keeping the rain off. If it is going to rain you can guarantee that it will rain just around pick up time! This coat comes in a navy that is perfect for school, red or a brilliant 'Fisherman Yellow'. Team with a pair of wellies and your puddle stomper can splash to his heart's content without getting damp and cold. We love the Puddleflex (£24 size 8 small to 4 large) design as the polar fleece make them more comfortable and the draw cord keeps splashes and biting winds out. But the boys were rather taken by the blue PuddleStomper wellies with the lightning bolts (£20).

Check out the full range here and don't get caught out by the rain this winter.

Size Chart
**Please note, we are always happy to measure individual pieces for you.**
**Please email us directly at**

At "Five Boys Clothing" we offer as much guidance as possible when it comes to sizing as we know that age is not an exact science when it comes to measuring for the right size clothing.

Any European brands provide a height measurement - and we always attempt to describe the fit. Please find a guide to European sizing below.

The European size is based on the actual height in centimeters, example a size 122 means 122 centimeter, that is for a child in height 122 centimeter each centimeter = 0.39 inch, each inch = 2.54 centimeters













EU Size (cm)













As with all things this is not an exact science. If you normally buy big - we recommend you buy big, and vice versa.

When relevant, we identify whether products are true to size, big for size or small for size.

If you need any help regarding specific sizes please contact us at and we'll get staright back to you.

PS: Don't forget we do offer returns so if you want to try the products we're happy to send them out to you.
