Fun in the Sun with Platypus Australia


Mini Travellers has teamed up with PLATYPUS AUSTRALIA to offer one lucky reader a chance to win a Bikini and UPF50+ Sun Jacket for girls aged 2-8.

The bikini has really fabulous shorts with it and the zip up top ensures they can stay warm if it’s a little chilly, yet safe from the sun if it’s hot. The jacket was really incredibly easy to get on and off which can be an issue with some of the tighter UV sun outfits. I loved this feature and so did the girls as it meant they could do it themselves. The jacket was a little difficult for my new swimmers to swim in (created a little drag) but as they already had the bikini top on this wasn’t an issue at all, as once they were in the pool they just took the top off. When they were out of the pool I was confident that the UPF 50+ offered excellent sun protection, blocking out more than 97.5% of the sun’s harmful rays which meant no sun cream was necessary on that part of their body! Always a bonus when you have three to put sun tan cream on. Whilst we haven’t used these suits day in day out i.e for a two week holiday (which is usually my test), they have washed really well and are still as bright and cheerful as the day I unpacked them.
