Platypus Australia Children’s Swimwear Review

 photo platypuslogo_zpsaa2f5dec.jpgSummer is coming and we are very excited! We plan to do a lot of activities this year because it’s a good age to expose Sean to new things. He loves seeing new places and experiencing new things. It’s such a delight to see his excitement whenever we go to somewhere new – especially if it has water in it! He is totally crazy about water. I hope that he becomes a good swimmer unlike his mom :P.

Sean is fortunate enough to be able to review a complete set of swimwear from Platypus Australia. Platypus Australia is a swimwear company that offers high quality and fashionable UV Protective Swimwear, Girl’s and Boy’s Rash Guards, Kids’ bathing suits and Sun Protective Swimwear, including matching Beachwear and Rash Shirts, also know as Rashies, Sun Shirts, Swim Shirts and UV Shirts.

We received a Rashguard , Boardshorts and a Hat from the Hibiscus Line.

My baby is only 2 but I opted to get the size 4 because kids grow so fast so I decided that it’s better to have a size that’s a little bit bigger .

We decided to try it out today and you can see he’s enjoying playing wearing his new swimwear : photo platypuscollage_zps3c0dbff6.jpg

  130. Patty S. says

    Great products protecting kids from skin cancer early!

    My friend got me hooked on these swim outfits for my son. I never thought about the effects of the sun on his back because he would swim with just his trunks on. Now he wears the shirt with his trunks for all outdoor things.

  146. Vivian Sun says

    I love that there is UV protection.. It is especially important for an infant!

  147. Carol Gutowski says

    What a cute outfit. and a WONDERFUL idea. we must teach our kids how important it is to protect their skin at all times. GREAT IDEA and styles..

  148. Great review and great outfit for kids!


  149. Janet Benthin says

    I love the UV protection…thats the most important factor to me in swimware for children

  150. What a cutie! He looks comfy in his new swimwear :). Though we aren’t close to any beaches we always have at least a little wading pool in the summer plus family’s pools and public venues we visit to keep cool in the summer heat. Though the the more strappy styles of swimwear are cute they are not practical for protecting a child’s delicate skin. I appreciate very much that the fabric used for these is UPF 50+! That would be great for protecting the shoulders and back that otherwise don’t see much sun and would scorch quickly.

  151. Candy McDonald says

    Love the stylish sunprotection

  152. that it so cute and glad to know I am not the only Mom that still orders up in size

  153. Their swimwear looks like what we have been looking for! Thanks for sharing!

  162. Gloria Washington says

    I really like the style of swimsuit, the design and the colors I love, but what I like is that it has UV protection, it is never too early to start demasido protect our children’s skin.

  163. Sherryl Jones says

    Too cute and so happy in his swimwear! My grand kids live in Florida and can always use some protective swimwear. This looks great!

  169. Ashley Parks says

    Such a cute swimwear set! You are smart for ordering bigger sizes! I always have to get at least 1 size larger for my daughter, so that the rash guard “neck” goes over her head easily.. she panics when clothes do not go over her head very easily.

  170. Florinda says

    So cute! *.*

    Like the uv protection =)

  173. Clarinda P. Santiago says

    It’s the first time I’ve read about a UV protective swim wear! very nice for kids this summer! Mom’s need not worry if they stay long on the beach.

  174. lauren parvis says

  176. jessica hager says

    My family and I are going to the beach this summer and it’s my two year old daughter’s first time going and I’m so worried about the sun and her getting burnt so this would be perfect for us.

  177. Courtney Cox says

    that’s SO awesome that it has UV protection, i’m finding that not a whole lot of swimwear has that as an option anymore, i thought i used to see it “built in” as a default? definitely going to be keeping an eye on this brand thanks for putting them out there!

  178. angela montgomery says

    Love these items.

  179. karen benson says

    These are awesome for children who love to play outside all day. Great protection.

  182. Love these suits!

  183. Heather McKenzie Carter says

  184. Miranda Gonzalez says

    I really like that they have such a high UV rating!

  185. Deborah Mireles says

    I like the idea of my grandaughter being protected from harmful uv’s plus these are really cute!

  186. Lori Lopez says
