So the we might be the only family who was hoping for the weather to cool down a bit. Being a redhead and having children with pale skin, we were beginning to wonder if the heat would ever die down. Luckily for us this last week saw a little bit of rain. Unluckily, we also happened to be going to Legoland with our friends! Thank goodness the wonderful people at Muddy Puddles had kitted out Little & Mini Viking for rain.
Muddy Puddles started as a family business. A farmer whose children loved to get muddy, which is something they now really embrace in their company ethos. Muddy Puddles is a company I adore, mainly because of their attitude to children being outdoors. Each child should spend between 5-15 hours a day outside. I could not agree more!
Little Viking was sent the Puddleflex Jacket in green. Well when it arrived you can really feel the quality. It’s thick, but not too heavy. I love the contrasting polar fleece lining and that the hood is super waterproof. We had a downpour and Little Viking remained super dry! (well except his trousers, I think we may need some waterproof ones!)
These are the benefits of the Puddleflex Jacket as described by Muddy Puddles themselves. I love the fact its reflective and machine washable, it makes it the perfect coat for the nursery run and safe in the knowledge he can get filthy!
- Ultra waterproof – 10,000mm
- Polar fleece lining
- Concealed storm flap for extra rain protection
- Fully taped seams
- Flexible, soft waterproof PU fabric perfect for tumbling around in
- Reflective details for high visibility
- Machine washable
We were so impressed with Little Vikings jacket that we decided to order a Baby 3 in 1 Scamp Suit for Mini Viking. It’s a fabulous all in one with a fleece bodysuit inside that attached via little loops. It’s great because you can remove it in warmer wet weather, but it will keep them really snug in the cold winter.
Here are the details from Muddy Puddles:
- New hard-wearing herringbone fabric
- Fully waterproof – 10000mm
- Fully breathable – 3000gm
- Removable fleece suit for milder days which can also be used as a separate garment
- Adjustable pointy hood for little imps
- Machine washable
- Elasticated cuffs
- Dual storm flap to stop the rain getting in
- 0-12m foldover feet and hand warmers; 12m – 3yrs elasticated cuffs and adjustable stirrups
I personally think this is one of the best baby/toddler all in ones I have seen. It’s a fabulous size and will last Mini Viking all through the autumn/winter. She was as snug as a bug, still got around everywhere and was even a little upset when we had to take it off!
Follow Muddy Puddles UK on Facebook and they always have lots of fabulous offers. I cant wait to take both Vikings out into the forest this weekend so we can really explore! For more updates follow me on INSTAGRAM.
