As title suggests I'm trying to find a wetsuit for my 3yo DS

I don't really want to pay $100 and need to get it tomorrow (so can't do online)

If anyone has any suggestions that would be great

our local Kmart has started stocking them, not sure about the quality though, kmart seems to have gone down hill in the way of quality of late.

Try Anaconda, their kids suits are around $40 from memory and probably on sale at the moment.  They sell long and short.

Weird suggestion but it might be worth popping into an opp shop near a beach (none near Ryde, but y'know). My cousin swears by her opp shop wetties for her daughter, cos they only last a season.

Or Aldi. I think they were selling them a couple of weeks back???

Try Kmart or Best and Less, I think Targets only start from. Size 6, but the other stores have smaller sizes

As has been said Kmart etc now have the el cheapo ones - that work perfectly for a 3yo. Alternatively ds's cupboard has all sizes. Sorry that bit was not helpful.

They are still selling them at Wentworthville/Rose hill Aldi's  you could ring a few around the area. Much cheaper and good quality as we have two for our DS's.
