Review | Kids Wetsuits | Splash About UV Sun & Sea Suits

The UV Sun & Sea Suit from Splash About is just what children need when playing out in the garden during the English summer.

We all know the feeling… you’re packing to go on holiday or packing to go down to your local beach or even just trying to get the kids dressed for a day out in the garden but you’re not sure what the weather is going to be like. With the great British Summer making a revival Splash About’s new wetsuit range couldn’t be more spot on. They are light enough to pack down easily but give full SPF 50 protection and are beautiful to look at. Our son Dylan, 4, has used his suit throughout July, August & September 2021 at various splash parks in the U.K. and in the sea in Bournemouth, in varying weathers from 25oc plus all the way down to 16oc! We are very much looking forward to testing them out abroad in 2022! 

Designed to be warm, yet functional, the UV Sun & Sea Suit is just what children need when playing out in the garden during the English summer. Made from high-quality neoprene this is just like a regular wetsuit, but has added super-comfortable nylon/lycra panels in the arms and the sides of the body for much more freedom of movement. Perfect for getting in and out of the paddling pool! Easy to get on and off, the UV Sun & Sea suit is made with UF50+ fabric and combines fun and protection in the sun, with warmth when you need it.

Perfect for all day on the beach when it’s windy, but the sun is out. You can relax knowing the children are sun-protected and still warm. Great for swimming and splashing in the waves, or by the poolside. Wonderfully they are also wind proof and sand proof! 

Dylan chose the ‘Under the sea’ design UV Sun & Sea Suit and hat which are comfortable and colourful. Featuring a shy octopus against the deep blue sea, this combination wetsuit is ideal for little explorers. The UV Sun & Sea Suits come in 13 fabulous designs and three size ranges; 1-2 years, 2-4 years and 4-6 years. 

Once used the suits are just rinsed out and ready to be hung which is super easy, if like me, you often forget about swim wear until the next day! 

We found the Splash About sizing to be generous and comfy and Dylan is a large and tall 4 year old (95th centile for height and weight!). While the suits are tight, they come off easier than expected which is great when your child suddenly needs that wee they’ve been holding in!! They are exceptional quality and hard wearing, which is necessary with busy toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Splash About is a brand I definitely rate and now recommend to other parents. We look forward to when our daughter Cecilia, 10 weeks, is old enough to choose her suit! The only issue with them is they don’t come in Adult sizes for twinning!
