Cuddledry Review

Blog title Cuddledry hair twist and poncho review

Lily and Alexander had the opportunity to make bath time and swimming a whole lot easier thanks to Cuddledry. Alexander has trialled a poncho whilst Lily has been using the hair twist. Two simple items which have loads of great qualities and in my opinion and in theirs too, bathtime is such a breeze.

Cuddledry poncho and cuddletwist to dry hair quickly

My kids love bathtime. Plenty of splashing and 'deep-sea diving' like mermaids and in Alexander's case, occasional drinking of the bath water (!). However sometimes getting out of the bath isn't as easy as getting them in; we have a downstairs bathroom which involves a run out through the kitchen before we make it upstairs, all the while wrapped in towels and trying not to get chilly on the way.
So when Alexander had the chance to review the Cuddledry SPF50+ toddler poncho it seemed perfect for us. Once the bath is drained we can just pop it over his head and pick him up out of the bath and he is kept toasty warm and thanks to the signature cotton and bamboo content, he is dry in seconds! What's more is that it will be ideal for holidays abroad as it has UV and sun protection factor 50 thanks to the Cuddledry's patented Rayosan technology which is a plus. especially for his fair skin. He looks abolutely adorable when he is snuggled up in the poncho with the hood up drying his hair and the underarm poppers done up so it stays in place and it is easy to change him into a new clean nappy without having to remove any warm towelling from him. Despite fitting children between the ages of 1 and 3 it is compact so it is a great addition to the swimming bag rather than packing another beach towel and trying to cram everything in small lockers. It is long enough to allow him to totter around, keeping him covered and dry. It can be difficult sometimes to coax him out of the poncho it is that snuggly! The Cuddledry SPF50+ toddler poncho retails at £27.99 and currently only is available in aqua blue with turquoise trim and it also features a delighful embroided leaping dolphin which appeals to young children. Perhaps more colours would be nice to choose from, but since turquoise is very much our colour of choice we have no complaints!

The poncho is so soft, it seems to shimmer! Reminds me of the pretty bamboo cloth nappies we used when Lily was a baby, takes me back :)

In a similar way, the Cuddletwist also helps Lily from getting too cold in between leaving the bath and getting her hair blow-dried. The hair twist is just as absorbent as the poncho and once simply popped over her head, twisted up and secured, her hair is almost 70% dry by the time she removes it so I can dry the rest. This reduces the amount of time we have to use the hair-dryer, but she still enjoys using her leave in conditioner sprays and heat protector sprays that she sees me use. Again, this is a handy accompaniment to our regular swimming kit, as it can be folded up fairly small and if necessary it can be worn whilst we travel home in the car and won't get her car seat soggy. We can certainly see why it is an award-winning product! If you feel slightly jealous, fear not! Even though it has been in designed in mind for children from the age of 18 months onwards, the super stretchy fabric will fit on your hair too. Don't mind if I do!
The Cuddletwist sells at an RRP of £9.99.

Have a look at my review I made for my YouTube channel Sophie and Lily, which features a how-to on using the super-soft Cuddletwist.

Thank you to Cuddledry for sending us these products in exchange for our honest review; I have just packed the Cuddletwist and poncho to take on a short family holiday - I know they will make our lives easier whilst we are away!
