Wallaroo has these adorable little fold and go sunhats for infants. They have hats for adults too, and any age between the two, but what I want to talk about is the wee little ones. :) You can see from the tag still attached that this particular one is UPF 50+, so I definitely wanted to get it for the newest babe in our family. We were traveling together (me, her parents and my youngest son) to a beach resort, so I figured she'd get more outdoor time if she had a nifty little hat to protect her.
This hat is awesome because you can easily take it with you most anywhere you go. It is SUPER lightweight, and folds up really small (one-third the size of what you see above!).
Here you can see i am tucking it into the little front pocket on my purse.
They have a lot of different styles. This is the Lorikeet (in daisy print). I love the precious embroidery along the edge, the dotted lace ruffle, the tight stitching, the adorable polakadots, the soft colors, and the bigger daisies on the top section. There is also a matching Velcro strap to keep it secure on a windy (or busy) day. It's very soft and must be super comfortable. As you can see, this is no ordinary sunhat!
As luck would sometimes have it, I ordered just a tad bit too late and the hat was delivered sometime while we were already off enjoying our sun and fun. So... my daughter's sweet baby girl did not stay out in the sun too very long, not even while in the pool. That's okay though, we've got it for next time,
