My three year old daughter was thrilled to try out the Cuddledry Poncho Swim Towel. It arrived packaged in a sturdy plastic envelope which can be reused to take the towel out and about. It comes in a lovely blue colour with orange edging. It is marketed as being super soft and that its softness lasts wash after wash – so we took it swimming and I have washed it a few times to truly put it to the test.
I was immediately impressed with the quality of the poncho towel. It is made of pure cotton and bamboo which is Cuddledry’s signature blend. The towel felt lovely – soft and cosy and I imagine this would be great for any kids with sensitive skin. It is hooded and has press studs under the arm so it stays in place.
We used the towel after swimming – my daughter loved wearing it and it fit her well (she is a petite 3 year old). I was surprised at how absorbent the towel was as it is so light. It kept her snug and warm from the pool to the changing rooms and she happily sat in it until I was able to change her.
I have since washed it twice and the material has remained just as soft and the colour is just as vibrant. Much better than normal towels!
I think this is a great product and we will use it over and over again. It is £27 to buy which I think is a little steep as although it was very useful, I did use another bigger towel to completely dry my toddler after swimming. I think this product would be especially useful for holidays or days out at pools / beaches.
RRP: £24.99 to £26.99
