    Middle son loves the water and refuses to come out even when blue and shivering.
    At least this rashie would match his colour!

    Would love the blue one for my son for the summer when we head to the beach or go fishing to protect him from the Sun. His sister would also look pretty in pink, and would cry if she misses out

    Noah would love a blue platypus rash shirt so that he can go to the outdoor pools and swim/ soak up the sun rays like a platypus.

    The pink rashie is georgous, it looks great, feel comfortable, and provide excellent protection. My girl will want to wear it all day long.

    Since I have boys the boy rashie will be great, with 50+UPF it will be perfect for the beach. And with Platypus Australia you can’t go wrong.
