There’s nothing like wrapping a child up in a big, cozy hooded towel after a bath on a cold winter’s night. That’s why hooded bath towels make great holiday gifts. Unfortunately, as my boys have gotten bigger I’ve learned that while hooded towels for infants abound, it’s hard to find them for toddlers and bigger kids. That’s why I’ve done some of the legwork for you and rounded up five great hooded bath towels for kids. All prices are online prices and may vary from in-store prices.
1. Pottery Barn Kids Animal Bath Wraps: These adorable towels are large (50″ wide by 27″ long), super comfy (they’re made out of cotton velour with a cotton terry reverse), and have realistic details like embroidered eyes, velour appliques, and piped edging. My boys have the navy shark (which has a fin) and the lion (complete with a long tail), and they absolutely love them. You can also get a koala, a unicorn, a fox, or a lighter blue shark. Plus, they can be personalized! (regularly $39.50)
2. The Company Store Hooded Towels: This super hero towel—with a big “Kapow!” emblazoned on the back—is super cool! It is made of 100 percent cotton and measure 46″ wide by 26″ high. You can also get this towel in a zebra, a ballerina, an owl, a T-Rex, or a fox design. You can add the child’s name or initials, too! (regularly $42)
3. Lands’ End Kids’ Hooded Towels: These hooded towels are 54″ wide by 27″ long and made of 100 percent cotton. They come in fun designs including a pirate, a mermaid, a whale, a princess with a crown hood, and a super hero. They can also be monogrammed. (regularly $44.50)
4. Rosenberry Rooms Hooded Towels: At 54″ wide by 30″ long, these towels are the largest ones I found. The website, in fact, says they are appropriate for kids ages 2 to 8. The designs are super cute, too—you can choose from a shark, a turquoise or purple monster, a bunny, a dinosaur, a flower, an alligator, or a unicorn. Add the child’s name or initials to make it extra special! (regularly $39)
5. Circo Hooded Towels: These affordable microfiber hooded towels, available at Target and on target.com, come in a wide variety of designs to suit any child’s taste. There’s a robot, a fox, a monkey, and many more! The towels are 52″ wide by 24″ long. (regularly $15.49)
