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.

Our standard UK courier takes approximately 3 days and costs £4.95, or is free for orders of £70 or more.

Our express UK courier usually delivers within 24 hours of dispatch and costs £8.95. Please note that if you are ordering a personalised towel, express delivery will not affect the dispatch time as this is dictated by our production process; just which courier we use.

We now also offer International delivery to selected EU countries, for £19.50. We use UPS for international deliveries, which usually takes 3-5 working days.

The EU countries we currently deliver to are: Republic of Ireland, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain (mainland), Italy, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Poland, Sweden and Finland.

Amazing Quality

We love these towels, they are amazing quality and although a little more expensive, they are definite value for money. Lovely choice of designs too. I wish they made adult sizes!

Hi Lisa! Thank you for the lovely review, we're so pleased you love our hooded towels. We get lots of people ask us about adult ones, we did look into it but are restricted by loom size. Check out our JumboPlus towels if you haven't already, they're perfect for small adults. Happy splashing!

Great quality

2nd towel purchased. Great quality, colour and design!

So glad to hear this, thanks Rachel for shopping with us for a second time.

Kelly Johnson
Awesome product, great value for money

I bought this product (Busses hooded towel standard) for my 7 month old, it is amazing. Super soft so you know he is comfortable. It is a good thickness, so you know he will be kept warm getting out the bath on those cold winter evenings.
It is expensive for a towel, but very much worth it. If I could afford more I would have more.

Hi Kelly. Thanks so much for the lovely review, we're really glad to hear you are pleased with your hooded towel and it's keeping your little one nice and warm and snug. It sized to allow plenty of growth so will hopefully last him until he's 7yrs or so depending on height. Thank you and happy splashing!

Peter Philip
Harry’s new towel…

Purchased over New Year holiday weekend and arrived within 10 days of ordering. Prompt and efficient service. Good experience so far, lovely towel, perfectly soft and ideal size for our two and half year old, keeping him warm after bath-time. Love the colour and bus features, with big hood which our son loves to have up. Different colours and designs available. Good quality materials and well manufactured. Would certainly recommend to others. Thanks again.

Thank you very much for the lovely review Peter, we're thrilled to hear your son is enjoying using his hooded towel. Happy splashing!
