Yes, autumn will soon give way to winter, but that doesn’t mean we’re ready to give up the beach or pool in all parts of Australia. Those lucky enough to live in warmer climes can swim all year round. And there’s always a possibility for an island holiday or a winter trek north for those in southern states. So you’ll be needing one of these.
Platypus Australia is famous for its colourful UV protective rashies, swimsuits and boardshorts, covering up kids from ages one to 10. The brand has just released the Terry Cover-up ($53.95), a hooded terry towelling beach robe in soft 100 per cent cotton.
Great for protecting young skin from the sun and keeping kids warm while they’re drying off after a swim, the cropped design also lets them run around, build sandcastles and go wading without the garment getting in the way. We love the dainty ruffled skirt and sleeves on the version for girls.
The Terry Cover-up comes in three colours: two sweet shades of pink – dark for older girls and light for young ones – and blue for the boys. Order them for your little swimmers direct from Platypus Australia.
