Beach & Outdoor
One of the best things about the summer is looking forward to beach trips! Whether you live near the water or are taking a dedicated trip to catch some sun and surf, there’s so much to look forward to when the warmer weather arrives. Children are enthralled by beach trips as well, looking forward to weekends by the ocean or that perfect week-long family vacation. Keep them warm, dry and comfortable with a wide selection of beach items and accessories available from Pottery Barn Kids.
One of the basics that’s so helpful for any kind of beach trip is a beach towel. Not all beach towels are created the same, and when it comes to your child, it’s helpful to know the difference. The majority of our beach towels available are made of 100 percent cotton, ensuring that they’re always soft against your child’s skin. In addition, many of our beach towels are also Oeko-Tex certified. What this means is that they have received a mark of excellence deeming that the product is not only environmentally safe, but safe for children as well. Oeko-Tex textiles are free of harmful substances and are made with environmentally friendly practices at every stage of production. Many of our beach towels also have a UPF 50+ rating. This means that the towel, when used as a wrap, protects against potentially harmful UV rays. In addition to being incredibly useful, comfortable and safe, our available beach towels are also chock full of fun and whimsical designs that kids are sure to love. With everything from adorable mermaids to sea creatures to themes such as Star Wars, there’s a beach towel for everyone. There are also round and rectangular family-size beach towels available that your whole gang can use and enjoy.
Children may also appreciate a beach wrap for staying warm. Similar in construction to a beach towel with all of the effective safety and comfort features, a beach wrap has a small hood that your child can drape over their head to both warm them up and shield them against sunshine. Like many other products, most of our beach towels and wraps provide the option to have them personalized, giving you the option to have your child’s name or initials monogrammed onto the towel or wrap. Another easy way to stay warm after a day of swimming at the beach is to wear a tunic or coverup. Designed for use after a cool swim at the beach or poolside, our kids’ coverups and tunics provide a way to warm up in a breeze or when the sun is at its brightest. Both our tunic and coverup styles have a soft fabric blend for comfort and feature 300-gram weights, ensuring their durability against the elements and through repeated washing and drying. Both items feature a hood for easy covering and provide a wealth of many different design motifs your child can enjoy, from butterflies and alligators to classic navy-and-white nautical-themed stripes. Both tunics and coverups function as much more than beachwear, and they can easily double as summer sleepwear or even something comfortable to wear around the house on a rainy day. Coverups are slightly longer and provide more sun protection than tunics, which are similar in style to hooded sweatshirts.
When you’re headed to the beach with an infant or baby, you can stay prepared as well with our selection of beach towels, coverups, tunics, coverup hats and diaper covers made especially for babird. Similar to those made for toddlers and children, these items are also made of comfortable cotton and have UV protection for your baby’s delicate skin. Also make sure to carry along items you’ll need for a carefree day, such as a family beach tent to help get protection from the sun, beach totes to carry everything from diapers to snacks to sunscreen, and pop-up outdoor furniture to ensure that your day at the beach is relaxing and joyful.
