They say it’s going to be a long hot summer. Find some respite with these cool new products designed to make your kids feel good and look good too.
Is it a summer battle to get sunscreen on your active, outdoorsy kids? We have the coolest repellent for harmful UV rays that your kids will actually want to wear. Crazy Arms ($32.50 a pair) are UPF 50+ breathable sleeves that can be worn with t-shirts to protect exposed arms during outdoor play. Designed and made in Australia by three dads who have experienced the daily battle of getting their kids to wear sunscreen, the mess, and then further battles interrupting some ‘important business’ to reapply every couple of hours. They come in a range of patterns including dinosaurs, graphic skulls, unicorns, sailors, stripes and more. You can purchase them through the website.
Banzai Aqua Blast Obstacle Course
It’s Slip and Slide meets Tough Mudder this summer with the super cool water obstacle course for kids. The Banzai Aqua Blast Obstacle Course ($35) is a summer fun dream come true. Be the talk of the neighbourhood with this in your yard. Just add water. Purchase it on Amazon today in time for Christmas.
Beach & Bandits Swimwear
Not only should you stay cool this summer, but you should look cool, too! A husband and wife duo out of the Netherlands design loveable prints using UPF 50+ fabric for kids with gnarly beach vibes. We love the Getting Jelly with It boardies ($34.95) and the Salt Hair Don’t Care rashie, just to name a few. They ship to Australia, check out the website here.
Sunnylife Watermelon Pool
What’s the coolest fruit this summer? The watermelon of course! It’s so cool it got voted in to become Queensland’s newest ‘Big Thing’. So if you get any kiddy pool this summer, get one that looks like a watermelon. Sunny Life really know how to make summer shine. Purchase it ($59.95) from the website here.
Frog Orange Baby Carrier
Founded by Mornington Peninsula based surfer mum Victoria Boag, the waterproof Frog Orange carrier allows you take your baby in the ocean or pool and have your hands free for splashing around. It’s the first ever fully functional wetsuit (neoprene) baby carrier designed in Australia and we think it’s awesome. From $129. Shop online here.
It wouldn’t be summer without fighting with your siblings over who gets the best icy pole flavour. Well, your kids will be spared that joy with the new Zooper Dooper favourite flavour packs! Coles and Woolies have partnered with Zooper Dooper to sell limited edition packs that contain only your favourite flavours as voted by you. Check out the newbies like Fairy Floss, Bubblegum and Blackcurrant – maybe Mum will fight you for one too!
