There’s no denying that kids benefit from the great outdoors – and if they are togged up correctly, there’s no better place to play, use imagination and build up their physical strength and confidence. Let them hop, skip, jump, build and splash in the most protective and cosiest of outerwear. It’s no wonder that Forest Schools are becoming even more popular than ever.
The best waterproof clothing for kids
It pays to get the best waterproof suits for your budget – preferably 100% windproof, breathable and waterproof too of course. And if thought through properly, your waterproof suits should be generously sized, and designed with room to grow. High-performance outerwear for high performance, energetic outdoor kids. Naturally, it needs to be robust, so look out for durable puddle suits that have taped seams and adjustable tabs – like the Hippychick Toddler Waterproof Suit All In One that comes in a range of 5 colours and is generously sized to ensure they fit over clothing and still have room to run and play.
Outdoor kids love warm wellies and cosy feet
There’s no fun being outdoors with kids crying over cold feet when it’s wet and miserable – and it doesn’t have to be the middle of winter for bad weather. On the coldest of days, the 4mm
neoprene lining in kids’ Warm Wellies will keep their feet warm and toasty and super comfy too – meaning they can play outdoors for longer without begging to come in out of the cold. For those colder days, Warm Wellies are great teamed with a fleece-lined Hippychick Puddle Suit, which has a peachy feel polyester outer and a super cosy inner lining of polyester fleece. It won’t matter how many puddles they jump in, your little ones will stay warm and dry.
Lined wellies and lined puddle suits – a ‘cool for school’ warm combo
Forest Schools are fantastic at encouraging children to explore the outdoors as well as their imaginations, so getting their little pupils togged up with the right outdoor wear is very important. For years Warm Wellies have been included on school kit lists right across the country. Combined with the range of Hippychick puddle suits, there’s a perfect match for outdoor adventures that let your little ones stay warm, cosy and dry for all their cool outdoor adventures.
Kid’s outerwear that’s tough and fun
Parents look for outerwear that is well-designed, practical and made to last. That’s what Warm Wellies and Hippychick waterproof suits have in common. Warm Wellies were designed for function over fashion, and come in two colours – green or purple. Starting with toddler wellies size 6, they go up through infant and junior wellies, right across to adult welly sizes too. Made of natural rubber, they are lined with neoprene which is what wetsuits are made of, so they’re both durable and warm.
Hippychick waterproof suits are very durable, with very reliable zips and they’re super easy to clean and machine washable too. They come in a wider range of vibrant colours, for little ones from 12-month toddlers to 5-year-olds. The puddle suits are hard wearing and made from the highest quality materials – a perfect match for the toddler lined Warm Wellies designed and sold in the UK by The Warm Welly Company.
Get packing for outdoor adventures
Gearing up for a day out or a longer adventure should be light work. Packing the right puddle suit depends on the weather. A Hippychick Toddler Waterproof Packasuit is still waterproof and breathable – but it’s lightweight too and has its own handy little packing bag, making it easy to store away. Ideal to pack in a side pocket of a Warm Wellies bag that has room for 2+ pairs of kid’s wellies, and side/outer pockets to store your Hippychick Puddlesuits.
