Raindrops Outdoor Clothing Review

The minute I set eyes on this spotty raincoat on the raindrops website, I knew Lara had to have one. It is so bold and fun and has funky reflective bits to help spot my little girl when its gloomy.

Raindrops are Scandinavian specialists in children's outdoor clothing, especially in waterproof clothing such as Lara's spotty jacket. All of their clothes are produced in an environmentally-sensitive manner using natural products where possible, and they are all free from PVC and pthalates.

Lara's waterproof jacket is one of the finest quality items of clothing she has ever worn. There is absolutely no doubt about it's claim to be 100% waterproof. The day these photos were taken, the heavens let loose all they could throw at the coat and when Mummy and Daddy came home dripping and soaked to the skin, Lara remained totally and utterly dry. This is fabulous because now she has no excuse not to get out and play, even when the weather is pants.

Lara's jacket has a lovely soft, bright yellow lining and a fleecy collar. The hood is elasticated so that it does actually keep her face dry, and it is removable. The jacket has both an inner zip and outer poppers to keep your child dry. Even the sleeves are elasticated and with a velcro fastening to make sure no water gets in, whatever size your child is. The jacket is available in sizes from age 1-5 years and in both spots and stripes. You can also buy matching wellies and waterproof dungarees.

On the inside of the jacket there is a little area for you to mark it with your child's name. This is perfect because I can leave it on Lara's peg at nursery. Lara's nursery is really big on making sure that wet weather doesn't stop the children from enjoying themselves and I know that Lara can be let loose in the nursery garden wearing her new jacket. The jacket is very easy to wipe clean and, I am led to believe, is also machine washable. Bonus.

Do check out the Raindrops website as they have some really very high quality outdoor clothing for babies and children in all weathers.

Lara's spotty jacket was sent to us for the purposes of this review and costs from £28 from Raindrops. DEFINITELY worth the money.
