Cuddledry Poncho SPF 50+It's a nightmare trying to keep toddlers (any child!) safe in the sun. Even clothes are not protection enough when some fabrics can be penetrated by the sun's rays.  So while we were on a trip with Thomson Al Fresco near Lake Garda at the Altomincio Family Parc  we took an SPF50+ Poncho Towel from Cuddledry.

Harriet, now 14 months, loved being in the pool and it was great being able to pop the Cuddledry Poncho over her head to dry her off and feel confident that she would be protected from the sun.
The first of their kind in the UK, the Cuddledry Ponchos use patented Rayosan™ technology which comes from Australia, where extensive research has been done on the dangers of skin cancer.The Rayosan™ technology acts like a mirror, deflecting the harmful UVA and UVB rays off the towel, instead of passing through the fabric and harming a baby's delicate skin.
The Cuddledry Poncho, suitable for children aged one to three, is made using soft brushed cotton to give snag-free towelling. They have poppers under the arms which can be done up to create a loose "sleeve" when worn, to help keep the towel in place and make it comfortable for its little owner.  We found ours really easy to put on and take off, a perfect "throw on" towel for cover up for the beach, or paddling pool. Olivia has also been using it after Harriet's swimming classes and it still looks as good as new.
Cuddledry Ponchos come in two colourful designs: an aqua towel with turquoise edging and a hammerhead shark embroidered on the front, and a lilac towel with cherry edging and an embroidered angelfish.

The Cuddledry Poncho towels can be purchased from www.cuddledry.com and cost £22.99.
