Dreampower Carseat ponchos are safety + style!
What exactly is a car seat poncho? Style and safety!
It’s a poncho that is specifically designed to be worn over a child in a car seat so that they can stay warm and cozy without adding bulk between the child and their seat. Any bulk between the child and the car seat or the harness of the car seat is dangerous and can result in full or partial ejection in the event of an accident. The thick layers of a coat or snow suit compress with the force of a crash leaving a large gap between your child and their harness. Living in Canada, we still have to take winter and sub zero temperatures into account. No one wants their child to be buckled in unsafely, but no one wants their child to be sitting in a cold car when it’s -40 either.
We have added a few parent-approved features.
* elastic at the wrists to keep hands accessible. This is crucial for toy-holding and thumb-sucking.
*full zipper down the front. This means no need to remove over the head! This is helpful for all ages, and especially for when the babe is sleeping. Never wake a sleeping baby! :)
*fully lined poncho and hood.
Two layers of non - pilling polar fleece.
It is generally considered unsafe for babies and children to wear bulky coats under carseat straps.
The straps cannot be made tight enough to ensure that they will be held in tightly in the case of an accident.
Carseat ponchos are worn over the straps, so the baby or child can stay toasty warm, while staying safe.
Note: Some ponchos are reversible. Some are not. The description of each style will tell you which it is.
Dreampower Masks are different!
1. Hydrophobic non-woven filter barrier layer
A droplet will not penetrate through the hydrophobic membrane to contaminate the wearers mouth or nose. Hydrophilic materials such as coffee filters, wipes, paper towels are not ideal because the droplets will spread out, penetrate through, and contaminate the wearer's mouth and nose. You can test whether a material is hydrophobic or hydrophilic. If water beads up on a material, it is hydrophobic. If it spreads out and penetrates, it if hydrophilic.
2. Two layers of woven fabrics, which have better filtration efficiency.
3. Nose wire. This allows the wearer to shape the mask tightly around the nose to limit exposure. It also helps to prevent glasses from steaming up as you breath.
4. Elastic around the head, not just over the ears. Around the ear elastic is also available by request.
This is a fully washable filter system that retains its hydrophobic properties after being washed.
There’s nothing like wrapping a child up in a big, cozy hooded towel after a bath or a little splash.
That’s why Dreampower hooded Fun towels make great gifts.
Our towel costumes are made of top quality, super absorbant
100% cotton towels.
Children can sit and build a sand castle, or settle in for a bedtime story, wrapped up with their hooded towel. All of the body parts and attachments -eyes, ears, princess crown etc, are firmly sewn in place.
They are all machine washable and dryable, and will offer years of use.
3 sizes: (approximate measurements)
0-2 is 27" x 45" plus the hood.

With the help of many volunteers, we have donated over 1500 Isolation gowns and scrub caps.
Now that they are readily available from other sources, we have stopped making them.
