It’s part of our natural animal instinct to seek shelter in bad, rainy weather. But as anyone who’s watched a toddler climb a bookcase knows, kids are often quite lacking in the natural instinct department. Which can be a good thing when it comes to their inclination to splash in puddles and enjoy the great outdoors no matter the weather. That is why, thank goodness, we have raincoats for kids.
We’re so happy that there exists a garment that can shield our children from the cold and wet. And our kids are probably equally happy that there are so many jackets, slickers, raincoats, and ponchos in styles and prints to suit their individual tastes. As much as we might love the idea of dressing our kids exactly like fishermen or ducks, that might not be their thing. Now, with the magic of the internet and fashion, they can instead brighten up a cloudy day with rainbows, monsters, unicorns, sharks, color-blocking, and bunny rabbits. Or they can choose not to stand out in a storm, opting for classic colors and well-made waterproof gear.
Seriously, we’re a little bit jealous of these kids raincoats. There are a few that make us want to ditch our practical umbrellas and see if there are slickers in grownup sizes. Even if we don’t go that far, let’s be sure to get in on some of that singing and dancing in the rain too!
