Animals, Puffer Jackets And Bold Colours: Our Favourite Children's Raincoats For Autumn 2018

We've found the silver lining.

This wet weather and puddles may signal that autumn is creeping ever closer but you know what they say, every cloud has a silver lining - that means seeing your little one in their new raincoat.

Suddenly, the puddles look more like an adventure you can jump over together, instead of a nuisance when crossing the road.

This season’s raincoats are bright, bold and favour animal characters – whether that’s your local fox or historic dinosaur – and, let’s be honest, the puffier the coat, the better.

Our favourite is the pull-over duck raincoat and yes, we’re checking if they make them for adults too. Now, all we need to do is dig out our favourite wellies.
