LittleLife’s Poncho Towel is great for holidays and home – to use after swimming lessons, on the beach, after a bath or on a sunny day in the garden with the paddling pool. It is aimed at age1+ but can snuggle a baby quite easily and is large enough for a four-year-old to wear comfortably. The towel stays on with poppers, so children can cavort around in their beloved ponchos without them falling off. The dinosaur/bee/ladybird/clownfish/butterfly themes are a brilliant idea, distracting children from potential post-swimming meltdowns – and then, of course, there's the cute factor! Made from a quick-drying softfibre fabric that dries eight times quicker than standard towels, the poncho offers warmth, comfort and protection from the sun – what’s not to love?

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This product is ideal for a towel you can take with you as it is so lightweight and compact when folded up. I was hesitant at first because it’s so thin about how absorbant or snuggly it would be, but I was amazed. It dried my little one just as effectively as a normal towel and the fleece soft material used is really snuggly for him. The towel washes and dries really well too, so you could easily have it cleaned and dried ready for use again in a short time. Ideal for holidays or swimming.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

I particularly liked the poppers underneath the armpits, this made it much easier to put my child into. Simply slipping the top over his head and then I could pop the sides once he was in it. I particularly liked the hood for his wet hair and the design is very cute. We had the dinosaur one which looked very sweet on him and he kept looking at himself in the mirror.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The only thing i might have changed about the product is the colour, being brown it wasn't particularly attractive but the dinosaur features cheered it up.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

My three year old boy became the proud owner of Charlie the Clownfish poncho towel and my one year old daughter Bella the Butterfly. These towels are excellent. Tested on a hot British summer’s day at a splash paddle park they were perfect. Both children were in and out of the water and the towels dried them in super quick time, and then dried out before you could blink an eye. They kept them warm in between and looked ridiculously cute. Just the right length for my newly toddling daughter to ensure she did not trip over it.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

A fantastic quality product for travel. Great value for money - no more expensive than a good quality bulky beach towel. It looks great, the material is super absorbent exactly what you want for a wet shivering child and with UPF50 sun protection this is also an added bonus. They wash great on a cold wash and the poppers turn it into a wearable garment for in between swim times. Most important the kids loved them. These towels are so light you can fit them into the smallest space, perfect at the park so I didn’t have to carry bulky towels and add an extra bag to the pushchair. I also think they are ideal for holidays without adding to that dreaded weight limit at the airport.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The only thing to improve this product for me would be to add even more designs to the range, other than that a near perfect product for this mum.

Such a cute towel, washed really well, very child friendly and educational too we've talked a lot about ladybugs!   Love the neat packaging too - it's a perfect gift.

Getting out of the bath and pool are easy when the bug is there!
