Welcome to Puddle Jumpers

Outdoor Clothing for Kids

We believe that the best fun is found outside where kids are free to explore and discover all that nature has to offer. Our passion is to make outdoor gear that is practical, comfortable and keeps kids warm, dry and clean-ish in all weather.

Designed for big play and small laundry piles, Puddle Jumpers’ gear is designed and tested on the wild and very wet West Coast so you can be sure that it will stand up to the elements.

Being winter, the Wetsuits and Rash Tops completel Being winter, the Wetsuits and Rash Tops completely dropped off my radar and I forgot to upload them on to my new site. We've had a very mild winter so far and both my kids were in their wetsuits, playing with the hose earlier this week (yes, they're a little bit crazy), so for everyone else that has crazy kids like mine, they're now on the website.

The wetsuit is getting very low in stock in some sizes (and is sold out in size 2). I won't be re-ordering these so what is on the site is everything I have.

Splashsuits and Overbooties have been the pick of Splashsuits and Overbooties have been the pick of the week for you guys. When I get a string of people all ordering the same items, I often wonder if someone has recommended us somewhere on social media. If this is the case, then I thank whoever it was. ❤️
This is COMPLETELY stating the obvious but I rebra This is COMPLETELY stating the obvious but I rebranded this season. I had intended to do a big announcement when I first started using the new logo but well, it's 2020, and we all know that nothing really goes to plan in 2020. 🙈 And then a few months passed and I still hadn't announced it and it just felt weird making a big song and dance about something that happened a few months ago!

So instead, lets make a song and dance about my new website which went live last night! 🎆 I'm lucky enough to have an awesome web team that did all the hard yards building it and doing the nitty gritty stuff while I stuck to loading products and adding pictures and I'm stoked to say that it's come together nicely and is looking and (most importantly) performing great. Hope you guys like it.

🧠As much as I love having a break from the morn 🧠As much as I love having a break from the morning rush over the school holidays, my work productivity takes a great big plummet. I'm looking forward to school going back so I can use my brain for "adult work" instead of "parenting work" again. I think my body is about 95% coffee right now.

💡I'm constantly thinking of new things I could add to the Puddle Jumpers range and at any given moment I have approximately 9,285,624 different ideas running around in my head. I'd love to hear from you guys - anything you would love to see in the range? It could be more sizes, different colours, different products..... Anything!

🧤Introducing our Reversible Merino Mitts ⠀
⠀
The idea for these came about when my nephew needed some mitts to keep his hands warm while feeding his pet cows on cold mornings. They needed to be easy to get on, and most importantly, stay on. They've evolved a bit since that first pair, and now, here they are!⠀
⠀
They have long cuffs that can be pulled up or folded down and they're reversible so you can choose if you want navy with coloured cuffs, coloured with navy cuffs or one of each!⠀
⠀
And because they are stretchy and have the cuff options, they fit for AGES. The kids in these photos range from 18 months to 3.5 years but I have also had them on 6 month old's and they still fit great. 👌⠀
⠀
They really should be called something clever like the Inside Outey Uppey Downy Mitts but my brain is far too practical to come up with fancy names so "Reversible Merino Mitts" it is!⠀

I’ve never mentioned our Neckwarmers on here bef I’ve never mentioned our Neckwarmers on here before - only because they’re such a simple product that there’s not much to say about them really 🙈 .
✔️ They’re a soft, warm and snuggly
✔️ They’re a great, practical alternative to a scarf as they stay put on busy (and less-busy) kids
✔️ They’re easy care and non-bulky

You’ll find them hiding in our Accessories section (which I’ve now added sub-categories to after some feedback that that section was becoming a bit cluttered and difficult to navigate). Enjoy🧣

Waterproof outer fabric with fleece lining, elastic around the ankle and bungy elastic drawcord around the top edge - perfect for keeping the littlest explorers feet warm and dry.

They’re such great quality socks and I LOVE how they stay up without cutting little legs in two.
🇦🇺 ✈️ I think it has been one of the slo 🇦🇺 ✈️ I think it has been one of the slowest journeys across the Tasman in aviation history but Puddle Jumpers stock has finally arrived with our Australian retailers. The increase of online purchasing and the low number of international flights means that international orders are moving especially slowly at the moment. To avoid shipping delays, I recommend that our Australian customers purchase directly from one of our lovely retailers @applecartkids or @hugsforkids . 
Happy Puddle Jumping 💦

These are our size 2 overalls on a 3yo. He wore them last winter and they will last this winter too. Our overalls have plenty of adjustment in the strap length so kids can get a few years use out of them.
You know all that advice about using this time in You know all that advice about using this time in isolation to do some of those jobs you’ve been putting off? Well here’s mine..... I’ve owned Puddle Jumpers for nearly 2 years now and haven’t done an intro post (because putting pictures of yourself on social media is scary 🙈).⠀

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 I’m Clare and this is my team (and incidentally, right now, my bubble). My background is in Pattern Drafting and Product Development so I am passionate about clothing that fits well, is constructed well and performs well. My mind goes a million miles an hour and I’m not very good at sitting still unless I’ve got something to keep my hands busy so I’ve usually got some sort of craft project on the go - although my 2 youngest staff members seem to eat up any sitting still or crafting time these days. If it’s not a craft project, it’s a garden project or a house project or a mixture of all of them at once.⠀
⠀
🐑 We live on a farm on the West Coast (or the Wet Coast as many like to say) so the Puddle Jumpers range gets tested thoroughly. You can tell that my Head Product Tester is well suited for the job by his inability to even get one professional photo taken without rolling in the grass and getting himself covered in it. He enjoys being outside in the rain just as much as in the sun so our gear is tested almost daily. ⠀
⠀
I love my wee business and being able to share our products with you all and hope you love them as much as I do.⠀
⠀
Stay safe everyone.⠀

Clare & the Puddle Jumpers Team 😊
