Roosterbank Parent Buying Guides
Roosterbank Parent Buying Guides and Lists are designed to help parents, aunts, uncles and godparents looking to get advice and help on: what is appropriate for kids, what the ‘must have’ things really are and most importantly how to always get the best value for money.
We spend a lot of time researching what the best products by age, price and value are out there – making sure that what children upload or select on Roosterbank are appropriate. We also spend a lot of time helping children make the right decisions about how to use their pocket money to best effect. These guides are based on what we have picked up along the way and any pearls of wisdom we have to help you, whether you are looking for a present or trying to decide whether to approve or turn down a request from your kids!
Lists are broken down by topic, age and type. A full directory can be found at the bottom of this page. Or check out the guides below.
