A round-up of new products, from protective clothing to farm toys, compiled by Ruth Thomson.


- Protective clothing

Reflections on Learning


Autumn showers and winter squalls won't deter children dressed in Reflections on Learning's new range of protective clothing.

The company's rain ponchos (£6.99, each), in a choice of eight fun designs (including dolphin, pirate, dinosaur and ladybug), come with a built-in hood and a handy drawstring pouch.

Regatta Mud Jump (£13.99) are dungarees with elasticated ankles and stirrup loops that fit around the foot, while the Regatta Puddle (£19.99) is a breathable one-piece that comes in sizes small enough for children as young as six months and zips down to the floor, making it easy to get on and off. The main features of the one-piece Regatta Splosh (£24.99) are its fleecy Thermo Guard lining to the hood and body and its high-visibility reflective trim. Finally, there is the Regatta Stormbreak (trousers, £4.99; jacket, £7.99), designed to slip over clothing to provide a snug seal against wet and cold weather.

- Juniorsport play system

Playgarden Design and Resources


Juniorsport is a versatile indoor and outdoor play system for children aged three to eight years old. The all-weather hollow blocks (£80.64 each) and lightweight pegs (£19.04 each) make it easy to assemble and manoeuvre, so opening up play opportunities for construction, imaginative play, climbing and jumping.

Additional Juniorsport equipment can be added to offer greater challenge, such as a guide plank (£255.36), round balance beam (£321.44), trampoline (£901.60) and soft mat (medium, £273.28).

Playgarden is the only company in the UK to stock the range.
