Keeping Snug with Muddy Puddles
I am a firm believer in there being no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes. At this time of the year, despite having some gloriously sunny days, there can be a real chill in the air. There is a certain three year old who is very particular about what she wears. She loves wearing pink and dislikes wearing coats, so as you can imagine, it can be a bit tricky ensuring that she keeps warm as the weather gets colder. Thankfully, we have discovered this lovely Sherpa Lined Hoody from Muddy Puddles.
Having had a pair of wellies from Muddy Puddles, I have been impressed by the quality of their products, and the Hoody lived up to my expectations. Just by running your fingers across the jersey cotton of the hoody, you can feel the quality to it. But it is the soft feel of the cosy fleece lining that is the real selling point of the jacket.
Emily loves the two pockets at the front of the hoody. I imagine that these will be very useful over the next few months for keeping safe precious treasures such as acorns and conkers that we will find on our autumn walks. Of course, she also loves the fact that it is pink! I like the reflective pull on the zip – perfect for wearing when we are walking her sister to and from school as the days become shorter.
The hoody is perfect to slip on when there is a chill in the air, but it isn’t a waterproof jacket. It would be perfect to provide a warm and cozy layer under a waterproof jacket on a cold, wet day.
The jacket is certainly going to prove very popular with Emily over the coming months. Those of you who know my daughter will know how much she loves playing around in the dirt. The mud kitchen at nursery is a firm favourite with her. So it is a good job that this jacket also washes well. My only annoyance with it would be that it can’t be dried in the tumble drier, and with the thick, furry lining, it can’t just be hung up to dry overnight and ready to be worn the next morning. That said, this isn’t uncommon with other warm jackets, but will mean we need to rely on another coat on some days. However, I think Emily is going to wear the hoody as much as she possibly can, so the £30 price tag (currently reduced to £24) should mean that we would get our money’s worth from it.
