For little boys and girls who are budding engineers, this bright turquoise hooded towel features a 'diggers and dumpers' construction trim.  Thick, soft and cosy, it's certain to entice them out of the bath or swimming pool to dry off.  An orange star-shaped popper can keep the towel wrapped shut like a poncho if desired for extra warmth and privacy.


  • Made from high quality 550g Egyptian cotton for premium absorbency and softness
  • A double thickness hood dries hair fast
  • ‘Pop’ the towel closed for warmth and privacy, un-pop it for a good rub dry
  • Towel measures 130cm across the width and 90cm from the top of the hood to the bottom of the towel (suitable for children up to approx. 7yrs, please refer to our sizing guide here)
Sizing Guide

Which size hooded towel do I need?

We have two sizes of hooded towel: standard and jumbo.

Our standard hooded towels measure 90cm from the top of the hood to the bottom of the towel and 130cm across the width.  Towel length is personal preference but we suggest they fit best when they hang around mid-calf.  Depending on the height of your child, we suggest standard size towels for children who are toddling, right through to approximately 7yrs. 

Our jumbo hooded towels measure 120cm from the top of the hood to the bottom of the towel and 150cm across the width.  We suggest these for children aged 7 or 8 yrs and upwards. 


Are they suitable for babies?

Yes, the double thickness hood and the soft Egyptian cotton towelling make them a lovely option for babies.

For pre-walkers, we suggest laying the towel on the floor or on a changing mat after their bath. The double thickness hood provides cushioning for baby's head, and the large amount of soft towelling can be wrapped over them to keep them warm whilst gently patting them dry.

And as they are substantially bigger than other hooded towels on the market, as baby grows to walking age and beyond, the towel will transition with them lasting for many years beyond the baby stage.

All of our orders are dispatched by courier, unless you choose the 'local collection (Harpenden)' option at the checkout.

Julia Cassidy
So pleased with order.

This is the second order I have placed for these swimming towels. My daughter requested them as our Christmas gift to our three granddaughters as she had bought them previously and was so impressed with the quality.
As I have a total of seven grandchildren this last order was placed for my youngest grandson whose first birthday is in June. As there was a special offer I bought this gift in plenty of time so as yet have not given it to him. No doubt when I do his mum will be delighted!

Many thanks for the review Julia. We're so pleased your granddaughters love their hooded towels and hope your little grandson loves it just as much. A big happy 1st birthday to him!

Denise Somerfield

Luxurious quality, lovely rich colour and very generous size. Really pleased with this purchase. Washes and dries well too - should stay looking good for ages.

Thank you for the lovely review Denise - we're so pleased to hear your little one loves their Diggers and dumpers towel - its one of our favourite trims. Happy splashing!

Celia Gyton
Hooded towels

I bought a different hooded towel for each of my grandchildren aged nearly 2, 3 and 5. They went down well with all of them. The older ones apparently always want to use these towels rather than others they had. They look and feel very nice quality

So lovely to read this, many thanks Celia for taking the time to leave us a review. We're thrilled your grandchildren love their hooded towels!

Buy one hooded towel, get another half price!
