Let not monsoon dampen you and your child’s spirit. Keep your little one entertained with the best of the best indoor games or let them flaunt their quirky raincoats through the rains!
Monsoon’s are here and quite a few kids brands including our favorite Hamleys has a great stock of products so that the rains don’t stop your children from having fun indoors and if they do go outdoors, we also have some fun and cheery rain gear.
1. Rain Wear and Umbrellas
Hamleys Stephen Joseph rain ponchos themed around butterfly and tiger are so bright and beautiful. My niece simply fell in love with it. She has been flaunting it even when it’s not raining. And if a raincoat is not your baby’s preferred style, then an umbrella themed around Disney Cars/Frozen or Dora and Barbie can be a good buy! These stunning monsoon wear and accessories are available at Hamleys. Price: 399 (INR) onward.
There are a few more options available on Flipkart, take for instance this smart Spiderman umbrella. Oh! And it comes attached with a whistle too. Not just apt during rains but also helpful in keeping sun away completely, besides, it is light weight. Price: 495 (INR).
2. Indoor Games
