It’s simple. One coat, two styles. The baby parka™ toddler coat can be worn as a traditional winter coat or as a poncho. When worn as a poncho, the toddler can be buckled into their seat without extra bulk and not compromising the safety or function of the harness system in the car seat. The toddler coat has made traveling in the winter with a toddler a lot safer and easier!
Located along each sleeve of the coat, an open ended zipper runs the full length. When the zippers are closed the toddler coat is being worn as a coat and can used outdoors as a winter coat.
To use in the toddler seat: unzip the sides which separates the front and back of the coat. The back can be lifted and placed over the back of the seat…this removes any bulk that would lay behind the child's back. The child is sitting directly in the seat and is then buckled from under the toddler coat avoiding any bulk.
The front centre zipper of the coat makes it easy to take off….some two year olds are able to unzip, take it off and use it as a blanket …while keeping their seat belt on the whole time.
Although this toddler coat was designed to keep the toddler safe in their car seat, we took one step further and added reflective tape to the exterior of the coat for visibility.
The baby parka™ toddler coat is triple layered. The exterior layer is wind and water resistant. The interlining has thermal qualities - we use a product called Powderfill™. The interior is an anti-pill fleece that will stand up to multiple washings. (Our customers have reported using our parkas in -40 c/f windchill.)
This car coat/poncho fits to 4yrs +
Do not leave child unattended with product.
Proudly made in Canada.
It's super warm and fluffy, and helpful for darting to the car in the snowy weather. I would love to see 2 modifications though. 1 removable hood because once in the car it get warm on the drive. 2 I wish the outside material was wipeable because...spills. otherwise I love the design and product.
I was hesitant to buy this when I saw the previous reviewer mention it was too small/tight. But the fit is generous and it comes down to the knees of my medium sized 4.5 year old. It might even be good for a second year. We zip it up as far as it's comfortable and have no issue with the hood size (my child has a large head, 99% percentile). It is thick and feels well made. Reflective strips are a nice touch. Wish it came in other bright gender neutral colours too!
The material looks similar to that of a snow suit so Id say it would do for our -25++C° weather. I bought it for my 4 year old who is on the small side (15% of the growth chart) and hoping it'd last her longer than one more season, but already it's a bit snug especially on the hood part. Zipped all the way up and it's too tight under her chin.
It'd be nicer if it had snaps to make the body more snug when using it as a jacket to limit wind entering from underneath, the same way it's got zippers to create "sleeves" on the poncho.
I debated buying this jacket, and I’m so glad I finally did. It makes trips to and from the car so easy in the winter. We also use it for quick walks around the neighbourhood with the sleeves zipped and it seems to keep my daughter warm. It’s quite roomy on my 20 month old. I’m looking forward to getting a few years’ use from it. Great value for the price!
