Holly and BeauWhen water splashes onto the collection of pack-away coats and umbrellas, coated with Magic Color Technology®, each design bursts into vibrant colors. Once dry, the fabric returns to its original white graphics. Kids will be anticipating the next rainy morning at the bus stop or afterschool downpour.

Choose from nine patterns with enticing names like Cats and Dogs Packaway Raincoat or Red Robot Packaway Raincoat ($52). Each coat has a hood and is available in four sizes – Age 2, Ages 3-4, Age 5-6 and Age 7-8. The term packaway refers to the lightweight jacket being neatly stowed away in a convenient bag attached to the back when not in use.

Magicforest imports eight Umbrella designs that match the playful patters of the raincoats including Grey Monster, Pink Cupcake, Pirates and Yellow Horse. Each retails for $22 and changes from ho-hum to vibrant colors when raindrops fall on the fabric.

Holly & Beau won the British 2014 Innovation of the Year award when it launched its superior rainwear that revolutionized a child’s experience with nature. Every time it rains, children are treated to a magical experience. The lightweight fabrics are waterproof and machine washable (on the gentle cycle).

Wise designers built the coats for both boys and girls to have extra room to run and play. This allows for better flexibility and movement so there’s no need to buy the next size up.

British mom blogger Red Rose Mummy noted how her son’s raincoat had “a fair amount of growing space but the adjustable cuffs and generous hood means that it doesn’t appear ‘too big’ … This coat has a soft, fleece-y lining, light wadding (American translation: filling) and fastens with a zip and poppers (snaps).”

Not surprising, their Instagram account — @hollyandbeau or using the hashtag #hollyandbeau – is gorgeous, whimsical and encourages puddle jumping.
