April Showers Bring Cute Rain Gear

Dinosaur Rain GearKids' rain gear is just plain adorable. And here are a few of my favorites for fun (and practical) rain coats, rain boots, and umbrellas so your kids can enjoy April showers:

For toddlers and younger children, Kidorable has lots of matching rain coatsrain boots, and umbrellas for boys and girls. The dinosaur ensemble (shown in photo on right) even has spiky scales on the rain coat sleeves ($36, and comes with a matching hanger), the rain boots ($29), and on top of the umbrella ($13.50).

For older kids, the Kamik Kids Stomp ($35) makes a great all-purpose boot for boys and girls and comes in a range of solid colors. And for younger kids, the Kamik Kids boots have fantastic patterns, like the Spacewalker ($35).

Another good choice for kids are Bogs, which come in a range of heights including the Bogs Rue, which is a 100 percent waterproof slip-on ($52, currently on sale for $40.90).

Hatley makes terrific rain gear options for all ages. For infants and toddlers, they have the unique Rainbundler ($66). This waterproof, one-piece rain romper zips up the front, has an attached hood, and a warm, terry lining. And, it comes in four fun patterns, including flowers, blue whales, dinos, and Nordic bugs.

Monsters Rain CoatFor boys, Hatley has lots of choices including my personal favorite the Monsters raincoat (shown in photo on left) ($53), with matching Monsters boots ($38) and a Monsters umbrella ($19).

For girls, there are also lots of fun choices including the pink with green lining Running Horses raincoat ($53), and bright, bold Red Stripes boots ($55).

For older kids, Hunter Boots are stylish and well-made and come in lots of colors. I love the metallic silver ($75).

And for grown-ups, there are some great options for splashing around, too. I'm a big fan of Tretorn rain boots, as well as Hunter boots and Bogs footwear. All have lots of stylish and practical choices, so there's no excuse for not getting out and enjoying the next rainy day!

Are your kids puddle jumpers or puddle avoiders? And how about you? (And if you're puddle jumpers, how cute do you look while out in the rain! Share your favorite rain gear!)

About This Blog

There's nothing artificial in these blog posts from New Jersey's hardest-working women. Where to go, what to do, and how to do it—with kids—are all part of the mix.

Meet Our Bloggers!

Editor Judy Grover is the mom of two rambunctious boys, who, she admits, completely run the household. Like this "jokey" line admitting her feelings of parental inadequacy, her posts focus on the joys and challenges -- in the rawest, "real mom" way -- of raising her toddlers into considerate, thoughtful men in the face of demands from both career and peers.

Essex County Real Mom Anna Sandler lives happily ever after with her Jersey-raised husband and three NYC-born children in the land of jug handles and disco fries. She loves baking and crafting with her kids, even if everything they make doesn't turns out Pinterest-perfect. Anna has never met a holiday she doesn't want to celebrate, and enjoys sharing ideas for everyday fun (indoor beach party, anyone?), as well as how to commemorate bigger moments from birthdays to first days of school.

Mercer County Real Mom Lauren Kim is a writer and the editor of mom blog and home décor website, MomHomeGuide.com. When she is not spending time with her children and spouse, she loves crafting and tackling various DIY projects around the house. To see more of Lauren Kim’s favorite pins, visit her Mom Home Guide Pinterest Board. Follow her on Facebook for more on her favorite craft and home décor finds.

Middlesex County Real Mom Renée Sagiv Riebling is a mom of two who never irons (Quick! Grab it out of the dryer while it's still hot instead!) or cooks anything that requires dicing, but she does love sweet sticky faces and family outings (check out her Jersey Jaunts column for ideas). She understands all too well about the minutiae of mothering, and her blog posts focus on parenting pointers--from experts or experience.
