The past couple of winters in the United Kingdom have been much colder than those of the past decade, thus bringing us a great deal more snow over the whole of the country. Now you either love or hate snow, as it can be a pain trying to travel anywhere when it snows with the whole country grinding to a halt, but people young and old just love sledging!
This has meant that there has been resurgence in sledge sales, but due to previous mild winters, demand has outstripped supply with many people being unable to get hold of sledges when it snows. Often people cannot get to the shops even if they have them in stock due to the snow, or the manufacturers cannot deliver the sledges to retailers due to the snow. So the moral of the story is if you want to buy a sledge then think about doing it now before it snows!
Due to this last year Splash and Relax made sure to have an extra amount of plastic sledges in stock and have continued this year with additional stock ready for a white Christmas.
If you wait until the middle of winter or until it snows then the chances are a £5 sledge will cost you £25-30 on the high street, and that is if you can get hold of one. You could take a risk and buy one via eBay when it snows, but the chances are by the time it arrives the snow will have gone! As often these eBay sellers will either not have stock in and take your money, or deliver it late blaming the snow – either way you miss out on the fun of sledging until the next year.
