Rex London

Stand out from the run-of-the-mill with Rex London's fabulous range of products. "Welcome to Rex London, a quirky, unique treasure trove of gifts and homeware. Bringing you bright, colourful gifts and retro home decor, you’ll find something for everyone - all at incredible prices." WE've reviewed a selection from the children's ranges. I was amazed by the fabulous range of backpacks - there really is something special for every child. We received a lovely Panda backpack. They are ideal for  school, holidays or family days out, and the mini size is ideal for young children, who can sometimes seem overwhelmed by bigger backpacks - the measurements are Width: 21cm, Height: 28cm, Depth: 10cm. The backpack has a sturdy carrying handle on top and adjustable padded shoulder straps which help to balance the weight evenly and effectively, important to ensure children's physical health. Our young tester found the backpack really comfortable and it stayed firmly in place even when he was running around. The padded back offers an extra level of comfort. There's a zipped main compartment plus a small front pocket for easy access for frequently used items - the zips have tabs for easy opening. It's really well made, well sewn so its durable and made of high quality ptasticised material. The backpack easily wipes clean with a damp cloth.  A high quality product.

There's a whole range of accessories available in matching patterns - this is really helpful for young children, so they can readily identify their own set of belongings - and matching sets look great too!  Perfectly accompanying the backpack is the small Miko the Panda water bottle which, with its neat stretchy plastic carry strap which is easy to keep clean, is perfect for that all-important hydration om-the-go. Volume is 340ml and the bottle is dishwasher safe (top shelf). The screw top really is leakproof and easy for little hands to open. The adorable designs in the range include Rusty the Fox, Magical Unicorn, Prehistoric Land and many more, with something to appeal to every child.

Our final item was the unusually shaped Blue whale wooden ruler. Far from the standard boring ruler, this bright and sturdy wooden ruler is shaped like a blue whale. It may seem gimicky but actually, it's ideal for young children as it's so much easier for them to grasp and use than the conventional straight ruler - and it makes learning fun! The packaging includes some fun blue whale facts and this is a practical product that makes a fun gigt to brighten up the pencil case. The ruler total length is 22cm and the ruler measurements are 0-15cm. I encourage you to have a browse around the website - there are some really lovely ideas on there, for children and for adults - many quirky and unusual things that you won't find elsewhere. Visit Rex London.
