Review: Cuddledry Sun Protection SPF50+ Poncho Towel


I have previously mentioned that I am a proud Cuddledry Super Blogger and after talking about Timmy stays safe in the sun with Cuddledry Poncho Towel, I was keen on trying it.

Little man was sent a gorgeous aqua/turquoise Poncho Towel from Cuddledry to wear during our summer holidays in Brazil.

This is not any standard towel, it is an award winning sun protection towel that uses patented Rayosan technology which deflects harmful UVA and UVB rays off the towel, instead of passing through the fabric and harming your little one’s delicate skin.

Cuddledry SPF50+ Poncho Towels (RRP £27.99) are for children aged 1 to 3 and they are available in aqua and lilac, so your little princess can also stay safe in the sun. When the Poncho Towel arrived, I was looking forward to putting it to the test in the sunshine, so it was one of the first items that I put in little man’ suitcase.

Little man loved his Poncho Towel as soon as he saw it, he found the dolphin embroidery really cute and the towel very soft due to the natural fibre. Poncho Towel is made with supersoft bamboo fibre and brushed cotton to give snag-free towelling.

The Poncho Towel is very easy to put on and take off, little man can put it on by himself. I just need to help him with the handy poppers under the arms, which can be done up to create a sleeve.

I really like the idea of having a towel with sleeves, because little man can have his hands free to do what he wants to. During our summer holiday, he enjoyed walking by the pool with his Poncho Towel on, sitting down for a snack or simply enjoying the sunshine.

Little man would have his hood on when the sun was too hot, so the hood is very useful to keep your little one safe in the sun.

Overall, I was very impressed with Cuddledry SPF50+ Poncho Towel. Not only it is a very stylish towel with a gorgeous dolphin design, it is made of high quality material and it also protects little one’s from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Besides, it is a very clever towel with sun protection, highly recommended to cover up for swimming, playtime, beach and bathtime.

As you are aware, I am part of Cuddledry Super Bloggers and I would like to let you know that Cuddledry scooped five awards!

It’s been an exciting week for Cuddledry, creators of the original baby apron towel, as they picked up a total of five awards for their towels – that’s almost more than you can count on one hand!

Cuddledry’s baby apron towel, their flagship product, was the real star of the show, achieving three gold awards in the hugely popular Loved By Parents Awards, as well as a much sought after Mumsnet Best award. Mumsnetters are renowned for their high standards, and the Mumsnet Best award is only given to products that receive a rating of at least four out of five stars from a minimum of ten reviewers – definitely
an achievement worth celebrating.

One of the newest additions to the Cuddledry family of bath, beach and swim towels – the Cuddleswim bamboo baby swim towel – also scooped an award, receiving a silver in the Loved By Parents ‘best baby towel’ category. It came second only to Cuddledry’s apron towel, so no complaints there!

This is a fantastic start for such a new product, and is a reflection of just how popular the swim towel is already proving to be with parents, with orders coming in thick and fast for the swim towels since their launch.

“Parents love our towels for their silky softness and absorbency,” explains Helen Wooldridge, one of Cuddledry’s creators and directors, “and customers are very excited to see this same softness and superior quality in a towel designed especially for swimming, with the help of swim professionals.”

I have voted for Cuddledry on Loved by Parents Awards, so I’m really happy that they have won. Congratulations! 🙂
