Get outside whatever the weather with our Kidunk Suits! Our Kidunk hooded top features an asymmetric zip that slides to one side keeping it out of the way for maximum play. It has a roomy fit for multi under layers when it’s chillier temperatures as well as a large front pocket to keep little hands cosy and warm.
The hood is removable and the collar is deep and soft for added wind protection. Keep an eye on your little explorer in murky weather with a reflective trim across the front pocket and all the way across the back so even when wearing a backpack, they can be seen. To create an ‘all -in one’ playsuit, the hooded top attaches to our Kidunk trousers, with a hidden zip that has fabric guards to protect little one’s skin. Cleverly, our hidden zip makes it super easy for quick toilet stops, without the need to undress your little one completely! Made from recycled plastic bottles, you’ll be doing your bit for the environment, whilst enjoying it too!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO I HAVE TO ZIP THE TOPS AND BOTTOMS TOGETHER?
No, Kidunk tops and trousers are sold separately and can be worn completely independently of one another. The zip to attach the two parts together is unobtrusive and unless you knew it was there, it’s invisible. It even has a specially designed fabric zip guard.
The unique zip feature allows you to zip the two parts together, creating a playsuit. Whether it’s time for climbing trees, rolling around in sandpits or messy play, your little one is totally protected.
During cooler months, the zip feature makes the playsuits extra cosy and in the summer, means they are totally protected from the sun.
WHAT ABOUT TOILET TRAINING IN A KIDUNK?
The problem we found with waterproof suits was, in fact, the zip. Two layers of clothing with two different directions of zip were fiddly and took a little while to undo! We wanted to create toilet training friendly clothes and this is, in part, why the zip goes around the waist.
We think keeping toddlers unzipped whilst they master the art of toilet training is a good idea but the zips have chunky pullers on them so that they can easily zip themselves in and out as they get a little older.
ARE KIDUNKS WATERPROOF?
Our suits are water resistant so they don’t absorb water like most kids’ clothes. Liquids just sit on the surface of the materials and mostly roll off, so perfect for muddy puddles and water play.
The material is not designed for swimming in, so eventually if emerged in water it will become saturated. The good news is that they dry very quickly!
CAN I TUMBLE DRY MY KIDUNK?
Certainly on a very low heat. The suits dry very quickly when air dried but it’s always good to know you can tumble dry as well.
ARE THEY BREATHABLE?
The Kidunk tops and trousers are made from a beautiful quality, robust fabric which is designed for play but they are totally breathable and even the Teflon™ coating doesn’t affect this.
MY CHILD HAS DELICATE SKIN. ARE KIDUNKS SUITABLE?
Some children are more comfortable in cotton or Merino wool garments next to their skin and that’s why we recommend base layers to be worn in cooler temperatures outside.
Like many similar products in the market, Kidunks are polyester and Lycra based as they are the most practical for play, but may not be suitable for some children.
ARE THERE ANY STAINS THAT DON’T WASH OUT?
We have developed Kidunk to be, as much as anything, ‘kid proof’ so we have used liquids and substances that are commonplace around a younger child;- water-based paints, children’s glues, glitters, tomato sauces, blackcurrant juice and all the muck and grass you can throw at it!
Please check our care advice on how to treat stains.
We have also included in our care instruction leaflet liquids/substances that will damage the suit and that should be avoided.
SHOULD I ORDER A BIGGER SIZE IF I WANT TO LAYER CLOTHES UNDERNEATH?
No, we have sized the garments so that they can be worn comfortably with layers underneath. For more information on layering please follow the link here
ARE THEY COMFY ENOUGH TO WEAR ALL DAY?
Our little testers certainly thought so! Kidunks can be worn as any normal top and bottom inside and outdoors and are totally breathable. The difference with a Kidunk playsuit is that they are super comfy and repel liquids and gunky stuff!
There’s no better way to keep out the cold, stay cosy and protected and there’s only one way to go! Layers!
Adding layers under Kidunks couldn’t be easier. They’re generously cut so you can! Just add or remove layers depending on the weather and how hectic the play and adventures gets.
On warmer days, summer evenings and autumn afternoons, the fleecy lining will probably be enough. On cold days, pop on a long sleeve cotton top and some long johns or leggings. If it’s bitter, add extra layers – you can! Kidunks are great for snow and chilly days so just add jumpers and thermals underneath and they’ll be ready for anything!
Always check children’s temperature to make sure they’re not too hot or too cold. Every child is different and feels the warmth/cold in different ways.
Unlike most outdoor wear, Kidunks can be worn indoors too as they are 100% breathable. They are a similar weight to jogging pants or sweaters.
