Muddy Puddles, award-winning children’s outerwear brand, has completed a deal to join forces with UK outdoor children’s clothing company, Kozi Kidz.
Bringing Kozi Kidz under the Muddy Puddles umbrella will see two of the original players in the outdoor kid’s market combine their business know-how and practical expertise to build and secure leadership in the sector and meet the challenges of omnichannel shopping habits.
Natasha Ascott, Chief Mudder at Muddy Puddles commented: “We are incredibly proud of Muddy Puddles achievements to date, and are looking forward to the business continuing to grow and prosper with the former Kozi Kidz team.
“With our continued commitment to innovation, quality and meeting consumer demand, it’s set to be an exciting time for all parties involved.”
Tomas Torstensson of Kozi Kidz added: “We are thrilled to be joining the Muddy Puddles team and building the business nationally and internationally drawing on our shared founding philosophies and brand values.”
The past five years have seen a huge growth in forest nurseries and schools, with an increased focus on the importance of outdoor, play-based learning for pre-school and early years. Muddy Puddles said it wants to reinforce the message and encourage families to adopt a healthy outdoor lifestyle.
