Enjoying the great outdoors and playing in the park is always fun, whatever the weather - but keeping little ones warm and dry while splashing in the puddles is no easy task. These all-in-one kids' puddle suits will ensure a happy playtime.

With April showers rapidly approaching, know this: toddlers and kids are drawn to puddles with a force that's inexplicable to adults. This means the waterproof jackets and umbrellas we use to stay dry and warm in a shower or sudden downpour simply won't cut it for your little one. 

Put simply: the best kids' puddle suits are water and windproof to keep toddlers and young children warm, and their clothes dry and mud-free whilst they enjoy playtime outside.

But there is a lot to consider when it comes to finding the perfect puddle suit for your little explorers. Features to look out for to ensure efficient waterproofing include suits in breathable fabrics with taped seams, elasticated tight cuffs and foot stirrups.

Some of the more advanced puddle suits come with a fabric waterproof rating too, which is measured in millimetres and refers to the pressure at which water is able to press through the fabric. A minimum rainproof rating to look for is 1,500mm, but anything between 1,500mm-5,000mm is suitable for everyday wear. For more adventurous excursions a higher rating of up to 10,000mm is recommended.

We rounded up our pick of the best all-in-ones, from lightweight options to cosy, fully-lined suits.
