One young girl has penned the sassiest letter to Tesco. Eight-year-old Betsy was extremely disappointed by the stereotypical ‘girly’ raincoat options in the store.
She explained that every coat was extremely girly, but some girls might not like the designs.
She wrote: “Dear Tesco, I was quite sad when I went into your shop. I went into the girl's section because all of the girl raincoats were either pink or had puppies or kittens or flowers.”
“Some girls might like that but girls like me might not,” said Betsy.
Betsy decided to share some of her own raincoat designs with Tesco. She drew four adorable photos of raincoats. One was Harry Potter themed, another comic book themed and a World Cup-themed jacket.
Her mum shared the cute letter on Twitter: “Dear @Tesco We went to buy a raincoat today... Your clothes are lovely but sometimes, (just maybe sometimes) you might like this idea of what some little girls really might like instead of unicorns and rainbows and flowers... just a thinky-thought from an 8-year-old xx @tesconews”

Tesco got back to the young girl and said they would pass Betsy’s requests on to the relevant team.
They replied: “I really hope that in the near future we will have a much wider range of raincoat’s available for girls! Thank you for making me aware of this and I hope that you both have a lovely evening.”
Maybe Betsy can help design the next line of future raincoats. The 8-year-old proved that there is more diversity needed in girl’s clothing.
