In the hood...

When I take Ace swimming, the trickiest part, is having my own shower in the short window of time between Ace finishing his shower and Ace getting really cold and needing my attention! The new hooded towel from Tiddlers and Nippers has given me the gift of time! 
As soon as Ace is showered, he pops his towel on, finds a dry patch of floor (or his swimming float) and sits singing to himself while I wash my hair. He doesn't shiver anymore and he's no longer moaning at me to hurry up! By the time I'm changed, Ace is dry (including his hair), so I can help him get changed and pack his bag ready to go home. Ace can put his towel in his swimming bag by himself as they fold down really easily and nice and small, leaving room for his wet swimming gear too.

Ace wears the small sized hooded towel and it's a great size on him. There's plenty of growing room (he will be 4 in March).

Honey has the larger hooded towel and again, it's a great size on her (she will be 7 in May). She showers independently at the pool these days and this hooded towel hangs waiting for her to slip on when she's finished. She loves it because it leaves her hands free for carrying her 3 in 1 swim wash and her Tangle Teezer and it also means that by the time she's dressed her bottom half, her hair is dry and doesn't get her top all wet.
