It’s very important to protect our children from the damaging effects of the sun. But at the same time you don’t want to stay cooped up in the house all day either. Applying sun cream can be a real battle, with lots of complaints and grumbles. However one thing children will always love is a UV tent! We had one when the boys were younger for beach days. I could make sure youngest didn’t get too hot whilst his brother happily dug in the sand.
The UV Tent (£69.99) from NSA UK is a great compromise. You can ensure your children get some much-needed shade when they need it.
It really is a travel essential when you have babies and young children with sensitive skin. You can get them to have a welcome break from the sun when it’s at its strongest (between 11am and 3pm). With SPF35 it has a decent level of protection against UVB rays, which can lead to sunburn and potential skin cancer in the future.
But this clever tent doesn’t stop there it also doubles as a travel cot so if your little one (up to the age of two and a half) needs a nap you know they are safe wherever you are. You have the added reassurance of knowing these UV tents being British Standards Travel Cot approved and the self-inflating mattress means your child has a comfortable place to rest. The fitted mosquito net also gives protection from biting bugs!
It’s very lightweight and portable. Weighing only 2kg it can be taken on your flight as hand luggage so it’s a convenient travel solution. It’s easy to set up (the tent literally pops up!) and can be packed away in a handy carry bag.
