Hard to find Items
Some things are very hard to get when you live abroad. Luckily we have the internet to help us! All
the sites below have been selected because they are tried and trusted, and because they ship overseas.
A huge range of UK groceries, from malt loaf to teabags. Get a taste of home here!
The Kids Window
Along with designer clothes for children, the Kids Window sell all kinds of hard to find items including UV protective gear, children's ski-wear
and premature baby clothes. You can pay in Euros, US dollars or Sterling - click on the UK flag when you enter if
you want to pay in Sterling, the Euro flag for euros etc.
Another site designer clothes for babies and
young children at good prices and with subsidised international delivery. Brands stocked include Catimini,
Miniman, DKNY and Pampolina
Kool Sun - UV Protection for Kids
Manufacturer of sun protective garments for children up to 12 years in a
wide range of designs and fabrics, including cotton. All garments offer a
SPF of 50+ and are guaranteed to block 98% of UVA and UVB rays. Accessories
include sunglasses, beach shoes, suncream, beach robes and wetsuits.
The Nappy Lady
The Nappy Lady is the website for terry nappies, accessories and information about green baby products.
Ordering on the site is via email, rather than through an online system, but
the customer service is excellent and you can ask for advice before you buy anything. The Nappy Lady will also
despatch to almost anywhere in the world - you just have to ask.....
Now electronics really can be a problem. In some European countries the range of goods on offer (especially kettles!) is absolutely
minimal and due to exchange rates the prices can be much higher than in the UK. Unfortunately we have not yet found an internet site
which will ship goods to Europe. If anyone knows of one, please let us know.
