Mini must-have | Muddy Puddles mac

mini must have - muddy puddlesIn the good old British summer we can often experience all types of weather within a short period, I’m not complaining though, just think how dull it would be if we had 3 months of sunshine, whatever would we talk about?

The downside to this is that we have to be prepared for every eventuality, as if packing to go to out for the day or even a quick trip to the park wasn’t enough of a military operation when you have children.  I’m pretty sure I spend more time packing the change bag and filling the pushchair with all the relevant paraphernalia than actually playing in the park.

Cue Muddy Puddles’ packable Puddle Pac-a-Mac, try saying that after a few glasses of prosecco.  Keep it neatly in your bag (or your little one’s!) throughout the summer so you’re prepared for those unexpected scattered showers.

But before we tell you what we think of it, here’s:

The science bit

The verdict

We took this lightweight waterproof children’s coat on a (rainy) day trip to the zoo for a test drive and both myself and Coco Lily were very impressed.  It kept her nice and dry but didn’t add extra bulk and weight so there was no overheating going on and it packs so small you don’t even notice it in your bag.

One of the best things in my 4 year old tester’s eyes (after that fact that it was bright and spotty) was that the hood stays on well – I’m never sure who gets more frustrated with hoods blowing off, her or me!

We went for age 5-6 so it would last and also work with layers underneath as the weather cools down later in the year.

Park life

Just to make sure, we tested it in the park too…muddy puddles mac | cocomamastyle

So it’s full marks from us for this fun, printed and practical pac-a-mac.  Now, Muddy Puddles, can you do one in my size too?

Thank you to Muddy Puddles for inviting us to choose a Pac-A-Mac to test out.
