BBC Breakfast presenter Tamsin Smith and her team visited the TP offices early this week to record a feature on the growing size of children. A survey which is due to be released next year is the first large scale project to measure children aged 4-17 across the UK using 3D body scanners. This has been used to analyse the differences in height and body shape between children of different ages.
TP were chosen as a leading UK designer and manufacturer who for many years has taken into account the changing size of children. TP’s Managing Director Chris Martyn-Smith explained how the designs have been adapted as children's shapes have changed.
TP’s clothing range Muddy Puddles has also been developed to consider larger children with a number of products having elasticated waists and cuffs, and buttons on the legs.
