Splashabout’s UV combie wetsuits are a great option in that they are light enough to wear at the swimming pool, can be pulled on and off by a two year old, come in super cheerful designs (which can just go in the wash if need be) and – unlike some – the neoprene/nylon/lycra mix doesn’t irritate little ones’ skin. As the name suggests they also offer sun protection as well as a bit of ewp_20160817_15_20_54_proxtra warmth.

Essentially, these wetsuits are the difference between happy kids playing til they are totally knackered and over tired kids moaning about being cold…

The UV combie wetsuits come in a range of sizes for 1-6 years. Order online from
