Tractor

T-shirts and tops

EVEN kids who have never been near a farm find diggers and tractors irresistible. The popularity of characters like Scoop in Bob the Builder proves the point! So these fun T-shirts and sweatshirts designed by Leicestershire farmer Carol Davies will go down a storm with the younger members of any family.

The simple cow design (below) will be equally delightful for those that have a few more years on their side but are still young at heart.

Carol first designed the clothes for her two sons – John and Harry – but soon found herself bombarded with requests from other young mums at their nursery. They have proved so popular she has now decided to make them more widely available.

"Fingers crossed," she says, "that this is the start of a successful farm diversification project."

Made from 100% cotton they are designed to cope with even the dirtiest little monster and start at just £6.50 for a T-shirt and £11.50 for a sweatshirt plus £2.50 postage and packaging. Current designs in the range include a tractor, digger, sheep and cow. Available in ages 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8 in bottle green, navy blue and red. Adult size available in the cow design.
