WHIPPERSWAPPERS - Our Pre-loved Return & Earn Service


If you're visiting this page, chances are you already know how important it is to keep clothes in circulation for as long as possible. Approximately 350,000 tonnes of used but still wearable clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year. That's a staggering £140 Million worth! It's wasteful, it's bad for the environment and it needs to change.

That's why we've introduced Whipperswappers, an easy way for us and our customers to make a difference and make sure the fantastic children's clothing we buy is enjoyed for as long as possible. 

Here's how it works...

Return your unwanted items to us

We will check & grade them

We reward you for each item with payment on a Whippersnappers Gift Card that can be used to spend on anything you like in our store 

We resell the returned items


It really is that simple!

And if you have nothing to return you can still shop all of our lovely Pre-Loved goodies and bag yourself some bargains. 

You don't have to have bought the items from us in the first place either. If we think our customers will love them, it doesn't matter where they were purchased.
