Kidunk review: tough clothes for active toddlers

Are your kids mud magnets? Mine sure are. If there’s a puddle they have to splash in it. If they spot a dirty ditch they are drawn towards it like it has its own gravitational field. Our active toddler and pre-tween love getting messy.

It inevitably results in piles of washing and – even though the thought wading knee-deep into a river was the best idea ever at the time – soggy, grumpy little people. To date we’ve tried water-proof trousers, all-in-one rain suits and various jackets to try to keep our girls comfy and dry when we are on outdoor adventures. However, there’s always a part of them that gets damp; usually their feet.

Enter Kidunk. They got in touch with us after Just So Festival – a brilliant, and messy family festival that takes place in Cheshire every year. We were there, as were Kidunk, but we didn’t get chance to chat. So it was lovely to hear from them as we share a lot of similar interests – most importantly allowing kids to have fun outdoors.

Kidunk very kindly sent us a couple of outfits to try with our girls. Read on for a chance to win a Kidunk outfit for your own active toddler.

What make’s Kidunk’s kids clothes different?

Kidunk’s clothes are designed to be water resistant, warm and fun. They’re certainly unlike any outdoor kids clothes we’ve seen before. Most impressive is the stay-dry design.

The colourful outer layer is Teflon coated to be water resistant and on the inside it’s lined with fleece to keep your toddler warm. Our naturally warm little ladies had some thin layers on underneath their Kidunk outfits the first time they wore them and were asking to strip off.

We tested the girl’s Kidunk suits on a rather drizzly day visiting Agatha Christie’s holiday home Greenway, which you can get to by boat from Dartmouth in South Devon. We rode on the top deck despite the rain and all wished we were wearing something as cosy as the girls!

Clever features of Kidunk’s outdoor clothes for toddlers

The suits come in two parts but can be zipped together to create an all-in-one waterproof outfit. This feature proved extremely handy for us as Tin Box Baby has only recently cracked potty training. Being able to zip-off her bottoms fast is essential! There’s a great guide to all the Kidunk features on their website.

It was the bottoms that impressed me the most with expandable legs to go over wellie boots (also available from Kidunk) and elasticated leg cuffs that tuck inside boots to minimise the chance of water getting in should your toddler decide to engage in some vigorous splashing.
