New Burgon & Ball 'Buzz and Dotty' Kneelo kneelers for kids


Burgon & Ball is helping garden centres expand their offering to the key family market this summer, with the launch of two new colourful Kneelo kneelers with real kid appeal.


Starring friendly garden creatures Buzz the bee and Dotty the ladybird, these new children’s kneelers are cute, but oh-so-comfortable, too, with Burgon & Ball’s market-leading Kneelo memory foam technology.

‘Highly Commended’ in the Gift of the Year Awards 2018, Buzz and Dotty feature cute insect characters to help bring the garden to life. These vibrant child-sized kneelers have a bright and appealing design and charming ‘antennae’ to add to the insect look.  Perfectly sized for children, the Buzz and Dotty kneelers let budding gardeners work and play in cushioned comfort.

The colourful packaging also includes information to communicate the pair’s super-powers in the garden - Dotty repels nasty aphid invaders by eating up to 50 a day!

The kneelers may be small, but there’s no compromise on quality; they have the same superior construction as Burgon & Ball’s other Kneelo kneelers, with twin layers of memory around a firm EVA foam core. They’re sure to keep small knees – and bottoms! – comfy, so they’re perfect for gardening, and equally handy for picnics, pond-dipping, family days out, and all kinds of outdoor events.
