Ultra-cute rain gear to keep kids dry
Get your little one prepared for spring showers with these super-cute rain jackets, boots and accessories. They're sure to put a smile on your child's face (and yours) no matter how grey it is outside!
Just because you shelter your little one from the rain with their stroller doesn't mean you don't dress them up in rain gear. This soft shell jacket (hm.com, $30), which comes in checkered pink for girls and blue for boys, is both waterproof and windproof for gusty days.
For your little guy who has just begun to stand independently on his own two feet, get him these fun dinosaur screen-printed rain boots (thechildrensplace.ca, $20). The inner lining will allow him to conquer those puddles without soaking his socks.
Your fashionista-in-training will love the vibrant, bold orchid colour of this lined windbreaker (oldnavy.gapcanada.ca, $35). It features a sleek hood and two practical yet fashionable zip pockets, and its waist-length design will ensure your little girl stays warm and cozy.
Pair that brightly coloured jacket with these equally stylish rubber rain boots from Tommy Hilfiger (sears.ca, $45). They feature a tried-and-true polka dot pattern and a smart side buckle, plus foam padding for comfort.
The classic raincoat is still a popular style, as it's both functional and visually appealing — even for your little man, who might not want to admit it. This modern uniform slicker (gapcanada.ca, $47) is water-resistant and features traditional pockets with silver metal snaps and a wide-brim hood.
Match that slicker with these hunter green, bright yellow-trimmed boots (sears.ca, $18). They're perfect for splashing around in the rain and mud, and even though you don't approve of that, at least you'll be happy he's doing it in style.
To cover their heads
While raincoats and water-resistant boots are all good, there is something to be said for an umbrella that not only shelters your child from the rain but that is also just plain fun. This happy frog umbrella (raindropsto.com, $20) does both and makes us wonder if it would be OK if we got one for ourselves too. Hey, it's just an idea…
