When the
product first arrived I was surprised by how bright and colourful it was. It
caught my daughter’s attention immediately. It felt soft to touch and looked well
made. Overall first impressions were good for these reasons. Packaging was simple but
showed what the product was and meant my daughter could see it straight away, adding
to the excitement. The packaging clearly said what the product was and its main
features. Washing
instructions were simple to follow and easy to understand. I love this idea. My daughter
loves having her head covered and it stops her getting cold once we are out of
the pool. It stays on her due to the poncho design and makes changing after
swimming a lot easier than it is with a normal towel. Easy to use, you
literally just place it over their head. My daughter is only 2 so cannot put it
on herself but she can remove it with no problems.My little girl is only 2 so the
towel is quite long on her, but it doesn’t inhibit walking. The length and size
actually means she is nice and snug after swimming. When asked if she liked it,
she said yes. She didn’t appear to be shivering so it must have been keeping
her warm. We used this in
France after swimming and it worked well, meaning we could quickly wrap her up
after getting out of the pool, something which was ideal to stop her getting
cold.I found the towel didn’t feel saturated once I’d dried her
(something I have found can happen with a normal towel). It was definitely more
absorbent than a normal towel.My little girl loves the towel and is
happy to walk around in it. I would say she is very comfortable in it as she
gets excited when she sees it and doesn’t cry or try to take it off. Very easy to wash. A little tricky to dry due to the poncho hood
meaning that it’s difficult to hang to ensure that it dries evenly (this
wouldn’t be a problem if we had a tumble dryer but we don’t have one unfortunately).We use the poncho most
after our weekly swimming lessons. It has become a staple of our swimming bag
due to how easy it is to use.My little girl is only 2 and as a
result it was a little big on her, but I think that is a good thing as we will
get lots of use out of it. It will easily last her until 4, if not
longer. I feel that this
product is good quality; it is still bright and vibrant despite being washed
numerous times. Still feels soft to touch and looks like it will last a long
time.The initial
price seems quite expensive but now I have used it a lot of times I can see how
long it will last. It is definitely better quality than similar products
available and is worth spending more on as it will definitely last
longer.I absolutely
loved the design of this towel, it is bold and eye catching and people comment
on it when they see it. The hood is a perfect size and means my daughter can
still see where she is going when walking. She loves the bright vibrant colours
and it’s nice and easy to spot in her swimming bag due to the design.I love the design, it’s so
bright and colourful and my daughter looks so happy when wearing it. It keeps
her dry and doesn’t get the soggy towel feel of other towels.I would definitely buy this product.
I love how practical it is and how stylish it looks. It is reassuring to know
it’s going to last her a few years and she’s not going to outgrow it any time
soon. I would recommend it as it is long lasting, colourful and does the
job it’s intended for; there is nothing not to like.I would give the product 5/5 as its practicality and design
make it worth the premium price tag. It does its job and looks good whilst
doing it.Overall I have had a good experience using this product,
my little girl gets excited when we get it out of the swimming bag and she
particularly enjoying twirling around in it. I like the fact it has a
hood as it stops her getting cold on the walk from the pool to the
changing room. Will definitely be purchasing a second one. Zoe Naylor – Chloe 2 years

When this arrived looked a lovely towel, nice design. My daughter loves it and has run
around the garden in it since we got it.This towel was very easy to use. Used in the garden after the paddling
pool and very snuggly. We used this on
holiday and at home and my daughter feels very free to run and move in it. This
is a high quality towel and very absorbent. My daughter definitely felt
comfortable in this towel. We used this mostly in the garden to keep her dry
after being in the paddling pool. Sizing is good. I imagine it might be a bit
small on a 6 year old though. But as Imogen is 2 it’s perfect. This is a very good quality towel and good
value for money. Lovely design, but it
would be good to have some gender neutral colours too. I really liked this towel and it folds small
goof for packing in a bag. I would buy this as nice small but snuggly towel. I would recommend for the same reasons. Nice towel. Daughter likes it. Washed well. Lucy

When the product
arrived it looked colourful and I could see the design through the packaging.
Packaging suitable for item. I love the concept of the product especially
for when Amelia has had a hair wash and I want to keep her head warm
afterwards. This poncho towel was very easy to use. I like
how the poncho keeps Amelia’s top half warm after a bath but I wish it was a
bit longer. It’s hard to dry her legs and feet with the towel. We did not
use this on holiday. The poncho was very soft; it’s the first thing I
noticed. Amelia likes her
poncho, just wish it was a bit longer. Washed it a couple of times and it’s remained soft. We used this at
home after bath time. I really don’t think this would suit anyone over my
daughter’s age as I feel it’s a little too short on her. The quality is very
good and it is lovely and soft. I would
purchase at this price. The design is lovely; I like the print on
it. My favourite thing about the poncho was how soft it was. I
would buy this as softer than others I have bought in the past. I would
recommend for the same reason. The poncho has a lovely design, is very, very
soft. We were given the poncho to test and when it arrived I was a bit
put off by the packaging at first as it wasn’t very appealing. When I
opened it there was also a chemical type smell which may have come from the
plastic but I’m not sure. The poncho is very very soft and once out of
the packaging looks lovely. We’ve used it quite a lot after bath time and
the hood is excellent when it’s hair wash night as it keeps Amelia’s head warm
once out of the bath. I would like the poncho to be a bit longer though
as I had to use a different towel to dry the bottom of her legs and feet.
The poncho washes well and still feels as soft as before. Rebecca Roskell Thomas – Amelia 2 years 10
