If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you can’t let rain stop you from going outside. My family hikes, gardens, and frolics in the continual rain of the winter months. Outfitting my kids for our wet adventures is a challenge until I discovered Natural Pod’s Puddlegear rain gear.
Natural Pod is a Canadian company specializing in natural items for play and daily living that are mindful, creative and inviting for your family. Like many parents that recognize nature itself is the best natural toy, Natural Pod wants your children to enjoy the outdoors year round. Just consider this great description of Puddlegear rain gear:
To kids, rain is a just another toy, offering unlimited opportunities for splashing fun. We think that’s a great attitude. These clothes are perfect for playing in. They are attractive, sturdy and designed for children’s need for freedom of movement. Naturally, all of this clothing meets every possible quality and safety requirement. Puddlegear raingear is made in Europe by Abeko. A Swedish company that has been known for quality and function down to every last button and seam for 60 years . And kids think its cool too!
My kids think Puddlegear is cool, especially since it enables them to play and stay out longer in wet weather. It is comfortable to wear and easy to layer over warm clothing. With Puddlegear, your child will never sing, “Rain, rain go away. Come again another day.”
I had to laugh out loud because this post brought 2 things to mind. That playing in the rain is a rare treat here because rain usually = thunderstorms/lightening/tornadoes was the first. We loved swimming in the rain as kids but first clap of thunder the whistle was blown and we spilled out of the pool and into the game room till the storm passed. (50 odd kids and hardly a parent in the bunch)
The other was a news report I saw in West Texas. The teachers at a school located in Big Bend National Park took their kids outside to play in a gully washer (no thunder just buckets of rain). Most of the kids had NEVER seen rain in real life – just on TV because of living in an area struck by a multi-year drought.
Wow so not a thing on the west coast (wet coast!) But this fall has been surprisingly lovely!
Well for those in need both Natural Pod and Puddlegear’s web site are in Canada / Canadian dollars and the dollar exchange is really good right now!
I love this gear – Nice that its sustainable!
