Posted on 22nd May 2015

Toddlers love to Splash About

Baby swim classes are taught until babies and toddlers are 4 years old and it’s known in the industry as pre fundamental swimming. It’s of huge benefit to young children, helping development from hand eye coordination to balance and Splash About has been the leading supplier of specialist baby swimwear for over 15 years. In that time we have clothed thousands of babies and toddlers. Making sure pools have been “poo” protected and that our youngsters are kept warm and safe in the water.

It’s no surprise then that Splash About has a wide range of swim and sun related products for older toddlers and children, for use not only by the pool, but out and about, in or near water, on beaches or scrambling in rock pools. Once those fairly static babies find their feet and become terrible two’s there’s no stopping them and we love toddlers at Splash About, we’ve developed a whole range of perfect messing about toddler gear, check out some age 2+ ideas below.

Keeping cool when it’s too hot

There’s nothing more frustrating to a two year old than being boiling hot and having sand in your ice cream at the same time. It’s a tantrum inducement 8/10 rating right there. The solution comes in our fantastic all in one UV outfits. Made to UPF 50+ standards these great one piece outfits cover your child from the sun whilst the fabric wicks away perspiration and keeps them cool. Get the latest look here.


Stampy little feet.

Now they are walking, exploration is high up on their list. Those first baby shoes whilst perfect for a stroll in the park, certainly aren’t up to rock scrambling, puddle jumping, surf kicking or beach digging. That’s where our Splash Shoes come into their own. Choose from soft protective neoprene soles for younger toddlers, or for the older kids choose one with tough, durable and waterproof soles and soft waterproof neoprene uppers, these toggle drawstring adventure shoes are comfortable, easy to clean and virtually indestructible! Perfect for scrambling toddlers and children up to age 6. So protect feet against bits of glass, sharp stones and cold water and get fitted up in a Splash Shoe.
