Splashing in the Rain with Muddy Puddles

This is a collaborative post with Muddy Puddles

Lately the weather has been so up and down that one minute, we’re basking in the sunshine on the beach and the next it’s torrential rain. However, Emma is one toddler who will never complain about the rain. She is 100% all in when it comes to puddles! It is usually me that gets nervous about whether she is warm enough to stay out in the blustery weather. So when Muddy Puddles asked us to review their waterproof range, we were more than happy to give it a try.

Muddy Puddles are a Devon-based company who specialise in bright and vibrant outerwear for children that is waterproof, durable and built to last. I’ve been a big fan of their range of splashproof all-in-ones and jackets for such a long time as I love buying bright colours for Emma. I particularly love their ethos that their clothes are built to be worn, washed and then passed onto someone else as children’s clothes can be so expensive. I couldn’t agree more and I always love giving Emma’s hand-me-down’s to someone who needs them.

When I first moved to Brighton, my other half told me that you always need a waterproof coat and a hat, so discovering Muddy Puddles has been a bit of a dream for us. There’s been so many times that we’ve been out and about and Emma spies a park. “park park!” – often she spots it way before we do but when it’s been raining, it’s all a bit tricky without a waterproof. Last weekend was that kind of rain that sprays in your face as you approach the seafront and I was glad we had the all-in-one and raincoat to hand.

For our weekend adventure, we first started by walking along the seafront, which looked wild! Emma’s brother and I were a bit dubious and looked at each other knowing we should turn back, but Emma was in her element. She was wearing her Puddle Pac-an-All-in-One (RRP: £28) and ready to go puddle jumping. You could see by the look on her face that she found the crashing waves so exhilirating so off we went. She also made it her responsibility to look after the ‘brella’, and you can see how seriously she took this role by the capture below.

After a little walk by the sea, we then ventured into the woods to find leaves, sticks and bugs too. Emma has recently become a big fan of caterpillars and was looking in all the logs we stumbled across. One of her favourite things to do is inspecting the sticks, which those of us with toddlers will know – there’s a fine art to finding the right stick! Unfortunately we didn’t find a caterpillar but did see a snail on it’s travels. After rambling around, the rain had really eased off so we changed into Emma’s Muddy Mac (RRP: £35) to continue our adventure. We soon after found the bridge to cross over to the park with the little lady leading the way as usual!

Emma had lots of fun with her brother on the swings, the slide and most importantly the see-saw, while singing “See-Saw, Marjory Daw’ at the top of her lungs – I’ve never seen her happier.

Afterwards, we sat down on the bench and I asked her a few questions about our outdoor adventures that afternoon. Having never done a question and answer with Emma before, I’ll definitely be doing it again and recording the answers.

Emma, aged 2.5 years old:

1. What is your best thing to do in the rain?

Muddy puddles!

(No joke, Emma is Peppa’s biggest fan)

2. What is the grossest thing you have seen on out on adventures?

Snail do poo

(This did happen once several months ago at the local park)

3. What does winter make you think of?

Snowmans

4. Where do you like to hide?

With James. Emma counting

(This is true – Emma counts to ten and James hides from her!)

5. What is your favourite colour?

Lello

(Yellow)

6. What is yellow in nature?

Flower. (I whisper ‘sun’) Ohh SUNflower Mummy!

Muddy Puddles can be found via their website or also on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I’d really recommend them for brilliant outerwear for the children, especially with festival season coming up.

    Emma is so cute in these pictures. I absolutely love the Muddy Puddles all in ones. Our first survived a whole year of nursery, it got caked in mud many times and always came out of the wash clean. I think this red print one is lovely! Fab review x #dreamteam

    I do love the look of the coats. Jumping in muddy puddles I think is a favourite thing for most toddlers, especially because of peppa pig. haha.

    Love the Q&A session – so cute! Muddy Puddles have some fab stuff, don’t they? My Small’s favourite thing ever is to splash in huge muddy puddles!

  17. August 1, 2017 / 4:06 pm

    I’ve never heard of this company before but I will definitely be checking them out. Loving all the bright colours and patterns. I picked up a rain coat for Clem recently but I’m thinking trousers would have been a good idea as well given how much she jumps in puddles! x #dreamteam

  18. August 1, 2017 / 6:15 pm

    Those are the cutest pictures! Mud puddles are the best!

    Oh this stuff looks gorgeous! And I love their ethos of passing the clothes down – says a lot about the quality! Especially love the all-in-one and little Emma’s interview answers!! #DreamTeam

  21. August 1, 2017 / 7:17 pm

    Emma I said so cute!! Love a waterproof! Means they can just go and do whatever they want and it doesn’t matter!! Love the looks of these too! #dreamteam

  22. August 1, 2017 / 8:06 pm

    I love the quirky design with the raindrops. It looks lightweight and perfect for summer X #dreamteam

  23. August 1, 2017 / 10:13 pm

    These look lovely and that all-in-one is a great idea #dreamteam

  24. August 2, 2017 / 8:01 am

    I think waterproof all-in-ones are great! When my kids were little, I would regularly pack them up in them, just to visit the park because, if it had been raining, the swings and slide would be wet – but it’s not a problem if they’re wearing waterproof trousers! #dreamteam
