Looking for cozy kids’ robes and cozy baby robes? With the kids staying home more than usual these days, you may have noticed that the laundry is piling up—and fast. Don’t even get us started on the towels… so many towels! Buying some quality bathrobes for the kids can be one of the easiest ways to cut down on laundry.
Who doesn’t want to be snuggled on the couch streaming Disney+ in a cozy plush robe covered with Disney characters or a unicorn hood? Robes for kids can be soft and plush, serving as a wearable blanket (and cutting down on the sweatshirts in the laundry pile), or become a replacement towel. Kids’ body temperatures naturally drop when they get out of the tub or pool. Wrapping up in a terry cloth robe will keep them warm and keep our towel count down.
A few key things to consider when shopping for children’s robes are size, closures, and hoods. We love an oversized robe, just not so much for our kids. It’s important to be sure that the length is right-sized for our kiddos. Sleeves can be rolled, but a robe that’s too long can be a tripping hazard. Many kids’ robes have attached belts (sew or safety pin them to the back of the robe so you don’t lose them every single day) or zippers, which makes this about personal preference. And most robes for younger kids, toddlers, and babies have hoods to provide extra warmth, but our older kiddos might prefer to have this option too.
With so many cozy robes for kids to choose from, we searched the market to find great options for kids of all ages.
