Top 3 best things about children’s all in one waterproofs

With a push on getting kids playing outdoors more and our most recent “summer”, parents like myself want them to protected from the elements! The answer – get them in an all in one waterproof!

1)     Freedom to play, whatever the weather

One of THE greatest FREE activities ALL children love is jumping in a muddy puddle  – it’s almost as if the puddle is calling out to them to “try me”! Peppa Pig has a LOT to answer for! As a mum I used to catch myself spotting a puddle up ahead and getting ready to say “no, dont jump in that puddle you will get all wet” just as the little one made the biggest splash you could think imaginable and covered themselves from top to toe in muddy dirty water.  When the kids have their all in one waterproof suits on though I can relax. There is nothing nicer than seeing a little one having a real good giggle jumping in a big muddy puddle!!! It’s truly amazing how much fun they can have with even the smallest amount of water!

When you go to the park and the swings are soaking wet from an earlier rain shower, i love not having to say no when they want a go on the swings, knowing that the suits are fully waterproof, keeping them nice and dry. Often we are the only ones there as a lot of parents haven’t discovered the real benefits of these suits so there is no queuing which the kids love!

A walk in the woods on a wet afternoon is also a great fun FREE activity and the kids just love exploring the trees, leaves and insects.  If the rain comes on then no need to worry or cut the fun short as the children are covered with their suits on.

2)    Protects clothes/machine washable

Another great thing about all in one waterproofs for children is that they not only allow the child to have fun but they also provide peace of mind for the parent knowing that their clothes are protected underneath and that whatever mud/sludge or such like they get their suits covered in will be washed away that night when it goes in the washing machine. We want kids to be kids and allow them to get dirt or muck on them without telling them off – that’s one of the great things about being a child.

3)    Easily transportable and kids love to wear them

All in one waterproofs by Regatta are light weight making them perfect for quickly tucking in to your bag as you head out the door with the kids – they take up no room at all.

Granted the little ones need some help but I know my youngest from when she could toddle, would go and get me her suit and sit patiently letting me put it on her with no fuss at all. I swear this was because she knew that once she got it on the puddles were no longer a no go zone! She even learned VERY quickly how to get both legs in it herself if i left it zipped up at the bottom – i guess she saw it as the quicker she got it on the quicker she got to go out and get dirty!
