My parents have a pool we have access to all summer, much to my kids’ happiness. We also head to the beach a lot, and to pools at friends and families’ houses. What makes packing up easy for the kids is keeping a pool/beach bag on hooks near the front door, in place of their school backpacks for the summer. This way we walk by that spot on the way to the car and grab and go.
Keeping all their goodies they need in the bag is important like sunscreen, pool toys, floaties, goggles, and a towel. Now if that bag was convertible and actually doubled as a towel, bonus!
To our happiness, and that of many mothers, The Children’s Place carries a line of Towel Buddy Bags that convert from a backpack bag to a full-length beach or pool towel just with a few simple folds! Last month The Children’s Place supported celebrity Jessica Seinfeld and her charity at the Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash in Central Park in the heart of New York City, celebrities like Tiffany Thiessen (90210) and Kyle MacLachlan (Sex and the City series) toted the bags with their little ones!
Our take: The towel is large and perfect for the pool, beach, or as a sleepover bag! It wraps around my 10 year old son, so I know it’s going to work well wherever it’s used. There’s a spot on the towel to write your name with permanent marker and is great for swim lessons, or going to the public pool. Straps on the back make it easy to carry, and it’s really a great find.
