I don’t know about you but bath-time is a big deal in our house. There’s nothing more that Max loves than stripping down and having a good old splash about, giving us a good soaking in the process.

A good quality bath towel is therefore essential when it comes to getting dry. So when we were given the chance to try an animal hooded towel from Minene I just had to say yes.

We opted for the blue animal towel, keen to add in a bit of colour and replace the white one that Max has had since he was born. The towel also comes in lemon, pink, green and white so there is something to suit every little baba in your lives.

The towel measures 70cm x 70cm. Max is a fair size for his age and it wrapped round him nicely but if he carries on growing at the rate he is it won’t be long before he outgrows it unfortunately. The hooded towel however is an ideal size for those precious newborns that have just entered your lives.

The towel is made from 100% cotton and had a lovely feel to it. Nice and soft so it was gentle on Max’s skin but not too fluffy that bits of fluff came off when drying. It even hasΒ a clever apron design, which secures via velcro round your neck, which allows you to keep dry and leaves both hands free for safe lifting. I think you can tell from Max’s face that it’s got his seal of approval.

I’ve already got my eye on the hooded cuddly towel range from Minene, which is a larger version of the newborn one and is suitable for toddlers, for when Max outgrows this one. After all, my little miracle baby deserves nothing but the finer things in life.
