On the colder days, you can’t beat the warmth and comfort of a beanie. Our fleecy winter range not only keeps kids warm and snug through the colder seasons, camping trips or snow days, they make them look totally adorable too! Our range of winter beanies features teddy beanies for babies and toddlers, and koala beanies in sizes for all ages. For those sunny but chilly days, our Fleecy Legionnaire style is ideal for the bigger kids. The brim protects from sun and glare, while the Sherpa-style lining ensures heads are nice and toasty. The ear flaps can be worn down for extra warmth or buttoned up for a little more airflow.
Complete the wintery cosy factor with matching beanie and mittens and booties – they match the colours of our fleecy range perfectly. We’ve got fleecy baby booties for newborns and new walkers, as well as covered mittens for toddlers up to three. For bigger kids who need the warmth of a mitten but the freedom of free fingers for writing or play, our fingerless mittens are ideal. And for those who love yesteryear style, our wool bonnets will be a hit. Fully reversible with a plain coloured wool felt on one side and a complimentary pattern on the other, these bonnets are great value as they’re two hats in one!
We recommend children begin their hat journey from the day they’re born to set them up with the skills to being sun safe for life. The younger they start wearing baby hats or beanies, the more accustomed they become to having something on their heads, so by the time they are able to move their little hands, hats will be as normal daily attire as a nappy and they won’t pull them off. And it is much more preferable to have happy hat wearers than grumpy ones! Introducing hats to older children can be a little more of a struggle. The best way to get them excited about wearing a hat is to choose a pattern or colour that reflects their personality. We have a huge range of bucket and broadbrim hats in fun, stylish prints like dinosaurs, flowers, transport and dogs, as well as bright and cheery colours. In fact, if your child chooses the print themselves, they’ll be much more inclined to wear it without fuss. You can find some other helpful tips and tricks to getting kids to keep their hats on in our blog post.
