My three-year-old just learned how to say '??brrrrr'?. When she says it, I feel like wrapping her up in my arms and squeezing tightly. Of course, I never want her to be cold, but I also want us to continue having fun outside, even if summer is over.
Fortunately, there is a fantastic website called Play Outdoors that specializes in all the gear families can use to enjoy the outdoors, in all kinds of weather. The founding partners are parents from Oregon, the land of outdoor enthusiasts, and these people know how to have fun outside!
All the products sold at Play Outdoors are tested by kids, manufactured with sustainability in mind and chosen for their outstanding quality. Find everything you need for camping, hiking, snow sports, water sports, cycling, climbing and family travel.
Patagonia'??s Baby Duality Jacketis lightweight, water and wind resistant, reversible and has a soft fleece lining. This power-house of a jacket is ideal for fall and spring and an excellent layer in the winter. I love it as a rain coat, because it's not easy to find a raincoat that's also warm. Jacket is also made of recycled materials and is recyclable, too. Available in blue or pink. ($48.30)
It'??s hard to resist the contemporary design of the Nutcase Little Nutty Dots Helmet. Of course, you don't buy it only for it's cool look. With a padded EPS shock-absorbing liner and full surround interior, you can bet these are very safe helmets. Eleven vents provide ventilation and the Spin-Dial fit system gives it a perfect fit. The small size fits toddlers and kids up to five years old. ($50)
