It all started with the original froggie rainboots discovered and manufactured in England twenty years ago and worn by the Royal British Princes, William and Harry!
Founded in 1988, Forty Mile Creek (Cooper Imports) introduced North America to the classic line of Wellipet frog, duck and ladybug rainboots, and the story began! Since then, Forty Mile Creek has been in the business of importing and distributing unique and colorful rainwear and accessories for children to retailers across the USA, Canada and around the world.
Over the years we have seen many changes. "Wellie" boots were unknown in North America when we first started doing business , unless you had visited or were a native of the UK! Today, just about every new mom knows about "wellingtons" or "welly" rainboots thanks to a huge expansion in the the marketplace for them. The old rubber rainboot these days comes in almost every colour, pattern or animal design you could probably think up!
Our current goal is to provide our customers with products that echo the British tradition and quality of years ago, but we don't stop there! Comfort, style, dependable quality and practical "wearable-to-school" fashion are all characteristics that come together to make a great product.
With products bearing the Forty Mile Creek label, weathering the storm just got a whole lot easier!
