If your child loves the seas as much as us, we know they will love our changing robe for kids.  Perfectly suited to a wide range of outdoor activities and watersports, the Red Original Kids waterproof changing robe has been designed to keep children warm and dry in any weather. Its size, shape and unique stretch panels allow your kids to put on and take off their wetsuit or swimmers whilst remaining fully covered, making it perfect for getting changed on the beach or by the car (hence why it’s called a ’changing robe’). 

With changing facilities looking like they will be closed for the foreseeable future this is also a great solution for arriving ready to swim or play and then travel home in without getting the car wet or muddy.

Kids Towelling Change Robe

Many beachgoers will have experienced the awkwardness of trying to get changed out of wet swimwear or wetsuits either in the car park or on the beach.

You can keep your kids warm and dry with our luxury Kids Poncho Towel. This changing robe is designed to keep children warm and covered whilst changing, making it the perfect addition for any kid who loves spending time enjoying the water.

Our Red Original Towelling change robe also makes the perfect robe after the bath or shower, keeping them cosy and warm whilst also getting them dry.

  • Swingball - Swingball is a family favourite and can be played any time of the year. The beauty is that it requires minimal room compared to most ball games so is perfect if you are short on space.
  • Skateboarding - Skateboarding helps children develop body coordination, balance and to challenge themselves with plenty of tricks to learn.
