Making friends with Swedish fishermen
We believe it's not only important for children to make new friends and nurture existing friendships, it's also crucial, that as adults, we continue to build relationships and enjoy those chums we've had for a while!
So we wanted to let you know that Free Rangers has a new friend. A Swedish friend called Didriksons.
This little family business has been running for over a hundred years and specialises in outdoor gear for babies, children and adults, oh and seriously gnarly fishermen and sea farers.
We came across Didriksons when looking for top quality outdoor wear to purchase for the nursery.
We drove to Bristol to meet John, the UK distributor. First dates are always a bit nerve wracking, but John put us at ease and straight away we knew we had discovered a product that very few in the UK have been lucky enough to stumble across.
Didriksons are so proud of their products and spend so much time making sure they do what they say they do, whilst always remembering that children are the key focus.
We invested our trust in Didriksons and bought a fleet of new outdoor gear for the Den children, so that come the winter, we are armed and ready, like never before.
As mums ourselves, Jayne and I also fell in love with many of their other products and couldn't fault their quality and value for money.
Jayne and I like to share and we felt bad keeping Didriksons close to our chest and so the idea of the Free Rangers' online shop was formed.
We are therefore proud to announce the opening of said Free Rangers' shop, which boasts a wide range of Didriksons gear for children.
We'd love to know what you think about the products and if you'd like to touch them and marvel at Didriksons' craftsmanship, then please take a look in the "Shoffice," (thanks go to Vince for creating it!) our temporary shop that's appearing in the office.
As I write this, we're all complaining about the heat and it's hard to believe that come the Autumn and Winter we'll be wanting our little ones, snuggled up and warm when playing in the great outdoors.
So we'd like to take the opportunity to remind you all,
" THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS BAD WEATHER, ONLY BAD CLOTHES”
