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.

Timmy stays safe in the sun with Cuddledry!

Timmy the sheep, star of Timmy Time, is a favourite with little ones across the country, and Cuddledry is absolutely delighted to be helping Timmy to stay safe in the sun this summer! The partnership is a fantastic achievement for a relatively small company such as Cuddledry, proving that you don’t need to have a big budget to pack a hefty marketing punch!

Cuddledry has teamed up with Timmy, an Aardman Animations creation, to celebrate the premiere of Timmy’s Seaside Rescue, the special Timmy Time film which will broadcast this summer. Cuddledry caught up with Timmy behind the scenes, and he very kindly tried on a specially designed Cuddledry sun protection poncho. We think he looks rather smart, don’t you?

The first of their kind in the UK, Cuddledry’s sun protection ponchos are an essential addition to holidays and trips to the beach for parents who want to protect their little ones from the sun. The towels use patented Rayosan™ technology, which dyes the fabric with a high quality sun block and acts like a mirror, deflecting the harmful UVA and UVB rays off the towel, instead of letting them pass through the fabric and harm delicate skin.

The sun block, which has a sun protection factor of 50+, stays with the towel permanently, regardless of washing and use, plus the fabric stays super-soft too. The sun protection poncho is a big hit with parents, and has already won the much coveted Mother & Baby safety product award.

Cuddledry and Aardman are also working with the popular UK wide Sea Life Centres to offer two for one entry – an offer included on special packs of the sun protection ponchos, available online at www.cuddledry.com and through stores including Boots.
