Socks to make you smile

I'm not big into socks, in fact most of the time I don't wear them. I'm not really sure where my dislike came from but it has been around for years and even on the coldest winter days my feet are often bare in my shoes. Socks only really ever get put on if I want to wear boots and need to stop them rubbing.

This might all be about to change though as I really am quite taken with the Chatty Feet socks that were sent through to me to review. I ordered a gift set in large and medium with the intention that one set would be for my husband and one could be shared by my son and I have as we have the same size feet but JJ might not even get a look in at this rate!

A single pair of adult sized Chatty Feet socks retails for £7 but you can buy a gift set of 4 for £21 which I think is a good deal when you consider that they have a design on both the top and bottom, they are very good quality and fabulous fun.

Chatty Feet socks are available for adults in medium (UK size 4-8) and large (UK size 8.5 - 11.5) and also for children in sizes 12-24 months (UK infant size 3.5 - 6), 2-4 years (UK infant size 7-9) and 4-7 years (UK infant size 9-12) so there is a real gap as currently you cannot buy the socks in infant size 13 and adult sizes 1-3. I have two 7 year olds and one is a size 1 and the other a size 3, so both my girls had to miss out and I'd advise anyone buying these as gifts not to go on the age guide but to check the actual size of the child's feet.  Children's socks retail for £5 a pair.

Chatty Feet socks are 75% cotton, 23% polyamide and 2% lycra. They are best washed at 30 degrees and it is recommended that you do not tumble dry or iron them (really, do some people iron socks?). I have washed mine and they were filthy as they were worn in the sloppy mud to the reenactment of the Battle of Hastings last weekend and they have come up fabulous and look as good as new, thankfully no bobbling!

Delivery of my socks was very quick by Royal mail and the costs is included in the price you pay, it should take 2-3 days in the UK and they deliver worldwide.

Chatty Feet seems a really fun family company and each month they give away free socks in their competition, so once you have a pair, wear them somewhere memorable, get a picture and share it on Twitter, FB or Instagram with the hashtag #ChattyFeet to be in with the chance of becoming a winner.

I think Chatty Feet socks are both a great product and a fun novelty and as such I'll definitely be giving some some Christmas as presents.
