    Polarn O. Pyret marketing director, Petra, describes her family’s Christmas trip to Malaysian Borneo. She shares some tips and tricks on what to think about before, during and after a trip.   Our adventure is getting closer – we are going to go to Malaysian Borneo with all our family over Christmas and New Year. I now feel the children are old enough, 7 and 9, for such a long journey. We grown-ups are looking forward to lazy days on the beach and exciting excursions into the rain forest. The children are thinking about what will happen on Christmas Eve. Will they get any presents? What kind of Christmas sweets will there be? And how will Granny and Granddad fare back home? And who is …

    We love camp! We love camp for all the same reasons you loved camp as a kid—adventure in the great outdoors, new friends who you wrote letters to all year long and life-long memories that you still cherish. Today, camp is even more important since kids don’t have enough daily opportunities to play, explore and take risks. Summer camp, whether it’s sleep-away camp or day camp, provides children with a chance to explore the world in a controlled and nurturing setting. Kids can develop independence and experience things that they may not be able to at home. We talked to our staff and reflected on our own camp experiences. Together we came up with our Top 5 Reasons Summer Camp Rocks! 1. Kids develop a …

    In Sweden, outdoor play is a daily ritual no matter the weather. In fact, school recesses are known to run in Sweden for hours. This is why Polarn O. Pyret knows outerwear is the most important part of your child’s attire.

    The unique snaps on our wind fleece and shell jackets allow for them to be joined when the weather gets colder, and separated when the weather begins to warm. This makes these two jackets uniquely prepared for Any weather!

    Merino wool is not your grandmother’s bulky sweater that has that, well, wool smell and constant itchiness. Merino wool can be considered nature’s perfect insulator that keeps kids warm when the weather gets chilly and cool when it warms up. It’s worked for sheep for centuries! As an added bonus, Merino keeps it shape when your kids play in the open fields or the soccer fields and again after you wash it.

    05_produkt_3_0032Weather can be unpredictable, even in the summertime. We believe there is no such thing as bad weather if you have the right clothing. If your child’s camp is long enough, rain will inevitably find him or her. Make sure they are prepared with a light-weight rain jacket, such as our new Light Shell Style Windbreaker. Combine with a hoodie, sweatshirt or a fleece and your child will be ready for anything.

    07_bad1_0151Whether you’re heading to the beach this summer or hanging out at swim team practice, the sun will inevitably find you and your child. Obviously, depending on skin type, kids can spend different (yet still small) amounts of time out in the sun unprotected to soak up Vitamin D, but if you’re planning to be in the water for more than a few minutes, you’ll need sun protection. We have several options to help protect your children from the sun’s harmful rays.

    T Camp
    The camp experience isn’t limited to overnight camps. Kids can begin experiencing camp life (hiking, creeking, camp songs, games) as early as age 3. Even for the preschoolers, camps can do something school cannot. It gives kids a much-less-structured place to learn and play. If your kids are in preschool and they get used to the routine of getting up and going off to school, no matter how many days a week, the summer break can be a battle after a few weeks of nothing.
