We're currently obsessing over this colour-change dinosaur jacket (£42) which gets colourful in the rain.
We already know Hunter is the brand-to-know when it comes to colourful, feet-protecting wellies for kids.
Hunter is also fab for wet-weather gear like jackets and ponchos, as well as accessories, like rucksacks and umbrellas. This season, we've got our eye on these glitter wellies (£40) - do they come in adult sizes, too?

This lovely outerwear brand for kids leads the way when it comes to responsibly sourced fabrics and technical design.

The prints and colours are simply divine.
