Initial thoughts: We received a bright green demin kids sun hat from Chatterpants for Piran. It seemed to be good quality and a lovely colour. It has a chin strap with velcro to keep it on the child’s head.
We liked: I liked the fact that as it was one colour it went with lots of outfits. It has a nice wide brim for keeping the sun off your child’s face. It has a handy name tag on the inside which was great for nursery.
We didn’t like: I have washed the hat a few times. Like your jeans after they have been washed the hat was a bit hard afterward. I wasn’t keen on the chin strap personally, Piran is happy to wear a hat and it just got in the way. I also thought the size was slightly small as we got a size 1-2 and it only just fits Piran. The next size up is 3-5 which might be a bit misleading as Piran would need that size at age 2.
Overall: As hats go this is not our favourite, however it is hard wearing and you can get ones that are lined with bamboo / cotton jersey which I am sure would make it softer. The colours match other items in the Chatterpants range which is a nice touch.
Further information: The sun hats cost £9.80 and come in three sizes from 6 months to 5 years. See the Chatterpants site for more information.
