Hiring ski clothing for children?

Hi All,

I have my sister and family visiting in a few weeks and plan to take my nephews sledging / out in the snow for a day.

Rather than buying them clothing that they will unlikely use again I'm wondering if there's anywhere that hires winter clothing for kids?

Alternatively, any suggestions for places that might sell second-hand outdoor clothing for kids?

Thanks
Ben

Put their ages and sizes on here - maybe someone's got something to donate?

Or check out a "Kinder Kleiderbörse" (children's secondhand clothing exchange) nearby. A google around should come up with some hits.

Re: Hiring ski clothing for children?

add the age/size of your nephews to the post.
perhaps another EF member can help you.

Thanks Ken & Sandgrounder.

If anyone has any to donate or loan near Uster or Bäch (SZ), the boys are 4/5 and 8/9.

Check your local Aldi, they often have a rail with ski clothes for kids at this time of year - very cheap.

Re: Hiring ski clothing for children?

There is plenty of high-quality second hand to get for kids! Check ricardo.ch (kind of Swiss ebay), anibis.ch, tutti.ch, etc. and narrow your search to some 5-10 km from your place so you need not pay the shipping...

Try as well tutti.ch. We are looking for second hand staff for our coming baby and sometimes the offers are better than on Ricardo.ch

Re: Hiring ski clothing for children?

Titlis Sport in Engelberg will rent clothes. They are part of Intersport so I imagine that other Intersport branches would have some rental clothing as well.
