A Primark Character Haul

Now I must admit to being a bit of a Primark convert in recent months. In the past, shopping at Primark had been somewhat of a negative experience. I found their quality wasn’t great. Our local store wasn’t the best and made finding what you were looking for pretty difficult. I tend to do most of our clothes shopping online and as that’s a service that Primark don’t currently provide, they just weren’t a go-to store for us. However, last year, something changed……

………They started selling good quality character items at very low prices. 

Now we are a family of self-confessed geeks. From Harry Potter to Star Wars, we love our character items and our house is full of them. With 7 people, each with their own interests, we’re always on the lookout for items that fit each person’s interests. Primark had captured our attention.

We picked up a few items before Christmas and were pleasantly surprised by the improved quality, and especially the low prices, so recently we decided to go back and see what we could find, we weren’t disappointed.

1. Trolls. Youngest absolutely loves Trolls so anything Trolls gets her attention straightaway. We found this fab Trolls Bag for just £3, and this cute Trolls Coin Purse was in the Sale for only £1. 

2. Pokemon. We have quite a few Pokémon fans in our house, so Pokémon items are always a huge hit. Primark currently has a huge range of Pokémon clothing items, these are just a few of them. 

A) An Adult-Sized JigglyPuff Onesie, perfect for our Pokémon-obsessed 13yr old daughter, for just £16.

B) Ladies Pokémon Pyjamas, again perfect for our 13yr old daughter, at £6 for the top and £8 for the bottoms.

C) 3-pack of Ladies Pokémon Shoeliner Socks. Again perfect for the 13yr old, at just £2.50.

D) 3-pack of Boys Pokémon Socks. Perfect for our Pokemon-loving 10yr old son, for just £2.

E) Boys Pikachu T-Shirt, perfect for the 10yr old at £5

3. Harry Potter / Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We are huge fans of the Wizarding World so all things related are always going to be popular with us. Ourselves and oldest daughter love it all.

A) A Marauders Map Double Duvet Cover Set. We couldn’t resist this one, I think it’s brilliant that they stock Character duvet sets suitable for adults. For just £18 too.

B) A Gryffindor Fleece Blanket. The 15yr old daughter loves this one and it was an absolute bargain at just £6.

C) “Don’t let the Muggles get you down” Chalkboard Plaque. Perfect for the girls bedroom at just £2.

D) A Hogwarts Alumni Ladies Nightshirt. Perfect for the 15yr old, marked up at £5 but it scanned at just £2 so was even more of a bargain.

E) Harry Potter Ladies Pyjamas. We especially love the purple trousers on these. A great price at £10 for the set.

F) 3-pack of Ladies Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Socks. Fabulous at just £3 for the pack.

G) A Hogwarts Flocked Crest Ladies T-Shirt. We love the design on this one, perfect for the 15yr old at £6.

H) An “Expecto Patronum” Ladies Tie-Dyed T-Shirt. Oldest daughter loves this one, perfect for her at just £8.

So, if you love a bit of geek like we do, then I recommend checking out your local Primark.
