I'm writing this as the Government is getting ready to tell us how badly we're going to get stuffed in this emergency budget thingy.
Thankfully it doesn't look like Cameron and his mates are going to slap VAT on children's clothes. That would be a bit of a disaster for parents who are already struggling to pay the bills or get a decent job.
Shopping around you end up with a choice, quality clothes that cost more, or cheaper stuff that fades and frays pretty quickly and don't last until the kids outgrow them. Getting 17.5% added onto any price you pay is going to hurt - so the best way to avoid that is to re-use the clothes you have already - especially if they are timeless, hardwearing and exciting.
Zuma the Dog is a well made and good quality product. We do not make anything in pink or blue. Bright colours only that both boys and girl can look great in. This makes our brand long last and unisex which means it can be passed down from your big brother or sister, or even your friends' children.

The soccerball world cup isn't about to take over just my television, it's even all over the kids clothes.
Everywhere I look the racks are stacked with t-shirts and jumpers with the usual cliches attached. They're not even very good, just the usual drabness with a bit of print slapped on.
I even saw a Mickey Mouse T-shirt with a Union Jack flag on, there's no reason for it. If it's not the red and white flag it's a ball and there's only one reason for it. Cheap designs from designers with ideas stretching no further than making an easy profit from the national obbession really get my goat.
Zuma The Dog loves playing with a ball as much as the next little boy, but there's more to clothes than simply throwing on a t-shirt with the aim only of feeding off commercial emotion.
The Zuma range doesn't pander to the whim of the moment. You'll find the whole range all year round in the bright, colourful and fun designs you know will make your child stand out in the crowd for all the right reasons.
