iplay Kids Clothing Raincoat Review and Giveaway

Dexter and Oliver love to play in the rain which, is not much of a surprise considering they are toddler boys.  Oliver wears his rain oots all over the house all the time and he is obsessed with water.  I recently received a raincoat for Oliver for review and when I first touched iplay's midweight rain coat for kids I couldn't believe how soft and supple it was.  I thought for sure that it couldn't be very water repellent.  Boy was I wrong!
whale coat, raincoats, boys clothing, rain coat for kids
Retails for $40
Not only are the colors bold and beautiful and the fabric soft as can be but it is PVC Free!!!  How amazing is that?!  The pockets are fully functional, the hood is trimmed with elastic so it contours the head and it is warm without being heavy.  The only thing you should note is that this jacket runs a little on the large side.  It is pretty long too.  This is a great thing really because you get more bang for your buck!

Typically you don't see my copying and pasting from a company's website but I want you to be aware of how amazing i play. is and why I love their company so much.  This is a message from their President:

"Founded in 1982, i play. focuses on values that prioritize protecting our children and the Earth.    Our company has always been about doing the best thing, the right thing for babies. We are committed to leadership in continually learning about product materials and potential health and safety issues concerning these materials. In 2003 we discovered the use of PVC in baby products. We researched and educated ourselves about the dangers of PVC and ensured that all of our products were PVC-free. In 2006 we learned about similar concerns over BPA, a petroleum-based hormone disrupter, and quickly eliminated it from our green sprouts® products. Now we are researching petroleum-free materials and other healthy ways to take care of babies and toddlers. 
As parents, store owners and good managers, it is important to educate ourselves about what is best for our babies, which includes finding responsible companies. One of i play.’s primary goals is to help parents navigate their way through information, products and trends in order to make sound decisions about the care of their family.    
Some choices we offer include materials that encourage healthy development from the inside and the outside:
Inside
• Natural, non-petroleum materials such as plant starch, plant fiber, wood, and cotton
• Non-petroleum materials such as glass, silicone and stainless steel
• BPA-free plastics such as Polypropylene (PP)
Outside
• Natural fibers such as cotton and plant-based non-wovens
• Organic cotton which promotes sustainable farming
• PVC-free waterproof materials such as EVA and polyurethane coated polyesters and nylon
• Sun protective fabrics of UPF 50+ 
• Flexible and breathable fabrics for active play

Our products undergo extensive testing and conform to all US ASTM, FDA and CPSIA standards. We believe it is a company's responsibility to monitor the quality and safety of their products."
