It’s no surprise that when it rains, I don’t like to take LO outside because he comes back DRENCHED – not because it’s raining but because he is constantly splashing in every puddle he can find. Whether it’s a little tiny puddle or a massive puddle that goes up to his ankles… he’s in them!
It’s not a nightmare when he’s got the right shoes on going to nursery but when he doesn’t, it actually makes my blood boil because it means he’ll be wet all day long and I can’t stand knowing that he’s damp (think of all that nasty bacteria breeding!!) Wellies have become one of our staple buys now – it got to a point when I wanted LO to have three pairs; one to keep at nursery, one to keep at home and one to keep at Ba’s (grandma’s) house so he’s always prepared.
However I came to realise that just having wellies was not enough for LO because when he splashes, his bottoms get wet. I cannot tell you the number of times that LO has left nursery in different bottoms on a rainy day because they let the kids out in the garden and of course, LO is the first one to be jumping in the puddles. So when I received an email from a British company called Dry Kids who sell children’s waterproof clothing I was absolutely ecstatic to have the opportunity to test out their wear. Unfortunately at the time of receiving the wonderful waterproof dungarees for LO, we’ve had a bloody heatwave and summer weather with no rain!
As we’ve had such good weather so far, for this post I will be reviewing the quality of the dungarees but not its performance. I will hopefully be able to do this at a later time when the rain decides to come back again. (I’m sure that won’t be long knowing what British summers are like!)
Here are some photos of the lovely Dry Kids waterproof dungarees to feast your eyes on:
As you can see, the quality of the dungarees is really good. These are the unlined waterproof dungarees which is slightly more lightweight than their fleeced version. I think I will buy the fleeced version for winter time as I really like these dungarees. I can already tell that with LO splashing in the water he won’t be able to get his bottoms wet – YAY! 🙂
My favourite feature of these bottoms are the little plastic poppers on the sides. LO has a slim torso so sometimes when I buy things for his age, it comes up a little big but having these poppers will mean he can have a better fit. I also like the handy name-tag label which will be really useful for him at nursery. I’m definitely going to have to purchase another pair in September for when LO goes back to nursery.
The waterproof dungarees are just £14.95 (so cheap!) and come in a range of funky colours. They also do a lovely warmer fleeced version which is only a couple of pounds more at £17.95. I highly recommend Dry Kids clothing especially if your children love the outdoors. If you live in a more rural area, then I think your little one’s wardrobe can’t be complete without a pair of these. Dry Kids sell a whole range of outdoor clothing from these dungarees to wellies and all-in-ones. LO has a waterproof all-in-one that we bought a little while ago but I much prefer these new Dry Kids dungarees as they are way easier to take off and put on especially when it’s time for a wee. 🙂
