Summer is the best time of the year! The kids are out of school. In between work schedules for us parents and fun summer activities for the children, there’s more time for family bonding trips, travel adventures and some relaxation.
Here are some of Mommy Pages’ Top Product Picks for Summer:
SUN & SKIN PROTECTION:
1 & 2. Headware and Parakito
Headware is a must during getaways, a workout or bike ride, when you need to cover up under the sun, or when you just need to keep your hair in place, in a fun and cool summer way. Headware prints are fun and hip, the fabric is light and cool and it’s such a hip, easy, and an overall fun accessory to use.
Para’Kito bands are one the best products that can keep mosquitoes away this summer. If you want to give your kids a rest from topical applications, or when they are up for an active day, just strap on their Parakitos for round the clock protection.
3. UV Sense
UV Sense is a unique product from Hatch and Latch. The bracelet changes color (to light pink) to signify when it’s time to re-apply sunblock lotion on you and your kids. It also changes color (to pale yellow) to advise the wearer to cover up and get out of the sun. A great product to ensure we all have ample skin protection at the beach.
4. Jelly Nelly Sandals
These colorful, fun plastic sandals came in kids and adult sizes. They’re easy to wear, lightweight and comfortable. Perfect for summer! Jelly Nelly sandals are available in Mothering Earthlings or Like the ” target=”_blank”>Jelly Nelly facebook page for more info.
Havaianas truly puts summer fashion at your feet. Havaianas flip flops have become a staple in footwear for all members of the family, even when it isn’t summer. No wonder Havaianas’ slogan is “With Havaianas, summer never has to end!” Join the Havaianas community, like the Havaianas Facebook page here.
6. San-Sun Salt Water sandals
The most comfy, durable and chic sandals you and your child can wear this summer. Available at Mothercare stores or like the San Sun Salt Water sandals page for more info.

7. Lactacyd Toddler Tubs
A must in your bath pouch this summer. Lactacyd Toddler Tubs is a wonderful wash to use after a swim in a chlorinated pool or a day under the sun and sand. Not only does it cleanse skin gently, it also keeps skin soft, moisturized and protected, plus it leaves a gentle scent. Like the Lactacyd Mums & Tubs Club page here.
8. Tiny Buds Rice Powder
Tiny Buds Rice Powder is hypoallergenic and made from 100% rice grain. It does not contain talc which can be harmful when accidentally ingested. Applying powder on the bodies of our kids keeps them dry from perspiration, and keeps them comfortable as well.
9. Scrunch Bucket
The coolest, ultimate modern mom bucket, the Scrunch Bucket is distributed by Wee+Mutsi. It’s an easy-to-pack pail, made of durable silicone rubber that keeps its shape even if you scrunch it. A bonus is that it comes in such cool, fun colors.
THE pail set for eco-conscious mommies, this award-winning Green Toys item is made from 100% recycled milk jugs. This sand play set is phthalate- and BPA-free. This is available at Numa.
11. SWIM WAYS SPRING FLOAT
You and your kids will absolutely love bringing this to the beach and pool! Super hassle free, portable, easy to use and pack away, plus it’s really fun to swim in. Check this out:
This product is avaialable at SPF stores in Glorietta and Robinsons Galleria, and at Expo Mom on May 5-6.
CAR TRAVEL ESSENTIALS–
12. Spinkie My Favorite Blanket
Fun. Soft. Cuddly. A stylish and ultra soft baby blanket made of 100% designer print cotton fabric and minky on the flipside. Spinkie is known for its chic prints, it’s so hard to choose just one. Wish they’d make this in bigger sizes too!
13. Peapod Baby Art Bucket
Peapod Baby specializes in travel essentials for kids and this Art Bucket is our favorite. Bundle it with a pad of white paper and keep your child happy and busy for hours and hours, by the time he/she knows it, you’ve reached your destination:).
14. Personalized Aquazorb towels
Aquazorb towels are perfect to bring on swim trips and travels. They are light and compact, thus they don’t take too much space in a suitcase. They dry easily, as in really fast so when you pack up they won’t be soaking wet. What’s special with these Aquazorb towels from Aqualogic Swim Co, is that they can be personalized with your names for each member of the family and minimize losses and trading of towels!
15. Tagz Bag Tags (Design your own!)
Bag Tags are another mommy essential not only for school days but for travel time. Tagz allows you to submit your own design, or you can also send photos or elements then they design it for you. Check out this sample of a special Lego themed bag tag.
