Elsie was recently sent a very pretty and very clever raincoat from Splashabout. Truly designed with toddlers in mind, it’s part of the brand’s new outdoor range and we simply love it! Here are our thoughts on the very pretty Russian Doll Cape from Splashabout…

What first caught my eye was the beautiful pattern. The russian dolls are just so cute and they make the coat so different from anything else in the shops at the moment. The colours are so bright and cheerful too, meaning that this little coat is guaranteed to cheer up any rainy day!

But what’s really wonderful about this coat is the design. I chose it because I was intrigued with the part of the product description that read: “This eye catching splash proof lightweight poncho is perfect for those little adventurers that can’t keep still! The easy to dress poncho style cape lands at just below the bum making it easy to be pulled over the head with easy to fasten popper buttons”. Sound perfect for your little squirmer too?

It really works! The coat simply pulls on and off, really easily and with no fuss at all. So I can have Elsie ready to go before she even realises. Now that is genius! I also love that the coat is lined with this gorgeously soft towelling fabric…

and of course has a space to write her name!

The outside of the coat is a lovely soft PU fabric that means it’s easy to wipe clean, and waterproof too. It has a hood…

And lovely long sleeves, also lined with the super soft towelling fabric.

The cape coat also has buttons which are little poppers, making it easy to button up or down, and it’s short length means that Elsie can crawl without it getting in her way. It’s also lightweight enough to wear in her car seat- but as its so easy to take off, it’s no hassle either.

Verdict

We love the Russian Doll cape from Splashabout! It’s fun, practical and obviously designed with active toddlers at heart. It retails at £35 but is currently selling for just £23 right now. And do check out the rest of the outdoor range while you’re there!
