Is there anything more wonderful than children playing outside in the fresh air – whether it be a clear autumn day or a crisp day in December. Even when it is cold outside, however, children actively playing outdoors, easily get sweaty. To prevent the child from getting cold, moisture must be be wicked away from the body. A wool base layer keeps the child’s body warm and dry. Polarn O. Pyret’s wool base layer is made of soft merino wool that does not itch. Wool is particularly appropriate for newborns and small children since they are unable to regulate temperature in the same way as older children and adults. Wool innermost layer and mid layer We offer wool both as the first layer against the …

Jean details

In the beginning, the people who used jeans were miners and cowboys – today they are more or less in everybody’s wardrobe, especially small tree climbers and adventurers! Polarn O. Pyret has five fits for all possible and impossible types of activities. Select the fit based on the type of activity – Skinny fit with lots of stretch is good for tree climbing to prevent getting caught in the branches. Loose fit might be a good alternative for a disco party. Then there is naturally the matter of taste and preference! Most important is that children get to be children – in the right jeans for all activities. SKINNY- Our most slender pants with lots of stretch. SLIM- Very slender in the leg with lots …

Children love to swim, and anywhere there is water there will be children playing and splashing. But what is important to consider when being around water with children? We spoke to a swimming instructor and got some ideas for swimming techniques, safe swimming and safety. Why is it so important for children to learn to swim? Swimming ability is important since it enables people to take care of themselves in the water. The importance of swimming readiness and ability must not be underestimated. There have been cases of children drowning in garden pools. Involuntarily ending up under water can be very stressful if you do not know how to swim or are unaccustomed to being in the water. Can I teach my child to swim …

Not for girls. Not for boys.

Not for girls. Not for boys. We make clothes for children. It may seem obvious, but our belief that boys and girls have the same needs makes us fairly unique. We want to make the best clothes in the world for children. Who wears what – and in what colors – is up to you. This has been our reasoning since we started making children’s clothing in 1976. It is a matter of not only colors, but perhaps more importantly – also fit. Our unisex collection (UNI) consists of clothing that is based on situation and function rather than on gender. There is really no reason to design different models and fits for small boys and girls since there is no great difference in the …

Is there anything more wonderful than the first rays of sunlight in the spring? The sun is always a welcome sight after a dark and cold winter. Remember to take care since children’s skin is especially sensitive to the sun, particularly in the beginning of the season when their skin is pale. The best way to protect all of our little sunshine’s is to make sure they are not in the sun too long and to try to keep them in the shade as much as possible. There is also clothing available that can help. IDEAS FOR SMART SUN PROTECTION Babies should not be exposed to sunlight or excessively high temperatures. Protect them with a sun hat, parasol and clothing. If you are outdoors in …
