Skipping Hippos sent me a Dana Pool Poncho to review for my daughter, Teela. It is a beautiful rose pink colored stretch terry cloth with a double braid trim in shades of pink, lavender, and gray. It is so adorable on her!
The pool ponchos are lighter and made of soft stretch terry. They are specifically designed to be a pool cover, but I love to use the one we have for cool or rainy days we have in the spring/summer months. We love to take it to the beach/ocean with us because it is cool and breezy there. The regular ponchos are slightly heavier and made of fuzzy fleece. They are for chilly autumn/fall/winter months. At Skipping Hippos they not only have ponchos, but they also have jackets, coats, and ponchitos (smaller ponchos for your child's dolls).
It took me a while to decide which poncho I wanted because her products are all lovely! I finally narrowed it down to three choices... the Ava Pool Poncho, the Dana Pool Poncho, and the Elise Pool Poncho. I had my husband pick out the color he liked the most for Teela. He was being funny and since he has been in the Navy on a nuclear submarine and works now at a power plant as a Plant Equipment Operator he was calling the colors chilled water blue and reclaimed water purple. Anyway, we decided we liked the purple color better and received the Dana because the Ava became sold out and discontinued. I also love the Apple Poncho, Ophilia Poncho, Jennifer Poncho, Jodi Poncho, Margaret Poncho, Marlies Poncho, and Natalie Pool Poncho! My favorite jacket is the Day In May Raspberry!
The ponchos are great as baby shower gifts, birthday gifts for little ones, or Christmas gifts! The prices for the ponchos range from $12-$46. They have a variety of colors and trimmings to choose from and sizes range from 6-12months to 6X.
