With summer in full swing and so many beautiful British beaches to enjoy right here in the UK, we can’t wait to have a paddle in the (freezing cold) sea with our baby.
Jelly shoes are a must have if you’re heading to the beach. Not only do they look super adorable on little feet, but they also protect your baby’s delicate feet from any stones or hard shells that might be lurking under the sand.
They're often very cushioned underfoot with adjustable buckles or velcro straps for growing feet. They also have closed-in toe protection to look after little toes while allowing the feet to breath and stay free when in the water.
With so many cute and stylish options, we’ve narrowed down some of the best jelly sandal options for you to shop ahead of your summer holidays.

One reviewer said: 'Absolutely adorable. I ordered size 4 for my twin girls, they are slightly big but since they do half sizes, it should be ok. They haven't been worn outside yet so I can't tell how durable they are, but I hope they last for what's left of this summer. Meant to be for paddling pool too.'
With a really thick and durable sole to protect little feet, they're super durable and come with a removable foam insole for better fit and comfort. They're also available in five different colours so you can find the perfect pair to suit your tot.
Available in sizes: 18-30
One reviewer said: 'These are the third pair I have bought. I love that they are supportive and comfortable. They are a little big, maybe half a size bigger than average.'
We love these glittery rainbow sandals. Not only do they look fantastic, they come with plenty of cushioning underfoot for added comfort.
Available in sizes: 3-12
One reviewer said: 'My toddler loves these jellies. They are well made and have a cushioned sole. Unfortunately they are slightly too large, so they rub slightly on her ankle. This could be user error, but her size 7 trainers fit more snug, so think these just come up a bit large. The buckle can be a bit fiddly to close when you have an impatient wiggly toddler. If they were velcro close they would be perfect. They are a firm favourite though.'
These are a brilliant option if you're looking for something a little smarter. With nine different colour options to choose from, these have a velcro fastening disguised as a buckle! They're fully waterproof for a paddle in the see but will also look smart if you head out for dinner.
Available in sizes: 20-28
