Aqua tots, puddle ducks, water babies – whatever you call your little ones, there’s nothing they love more than splashing around on a hot summer day! Whether it’s at a water table, the beach, local leisure centre or in a paddling pool, that you spent hours pumping and filling up, only for them to hop out in 10 minutes time, there’s nothing they love more than water play, and after the recent heatwave, it’s a great way to cool them down. With so much water fun to be had, we’ve taken a look at the best swimming costumes and trunks for 2019.

Peppa Pig Swimsuit – RRP £12
What could be better than basking in the sun with Peppa Pig?! Peppa Pig fans are sure to have fun by the sea in this adorable Peppa Pig swimsuit. The super sweet swimming costume features a cute print of Peppa, enjoying her ice lolly in the summer sun on a pretty pink striped background. The colourful swim wear also has frill and bow detailing in a pink polka dot pattern.




John Lewis & Partners Boys’ Shark Print Trunks, Blue – from £8
Shark prints seem to be having a real moment in children’s wear, and we wouldn’t be at all surprised if it had something to do with “baby shark, doo doo doo doo doo doo.” Crafted from a lightweight material, these trunks feature an elasticated waistband with an adjustable drawstring for a great fit plus an all-over shark print for a fun finish.
