Reinventing the beach towel
It's not too often that I get excited about a beach towel for kids. Yes, I get it - some have cuter patterns or whatever. But in the case of Towelmate, they really did reinvent the beach towel for both kids and adults--and it's awesome.
Hit the Towelmate
website and you'll find a brilliantly simple idea--towels with a little
zipper up one side, forming a small pocket for your keys or money. Or
in the case of the kids' beach towels
lotion and little treasures. In fact, I love that right inside the
pocket it say "shells."
The mermaid towel
for girls is adorable (although as with all products I could live
without the company logo on the front). I imagine the fun design will
appeal to girls from toddler through tween. And the soft cotton velour
is definitely a step up from the scratchy company logo towels we've
amassed from who knows where.
the boys' motif--a little train--is definitely suited towards the
preschool set. I'm hoping that with more success will come more designs
And if you want one for you--the person with actual valuables to stash away at the beach--there are a few Towelmate towels for adults
including a nice hibiscus print (just pretend you didn't see the getup
of the model in the photos), a colorful chevron, and a basic striped
towel that should appease the menfolk.
I could think of worse ways to start my summer than with the knowledge that I'm not going to lose my keys at the beach. -Liz
