For little boys and girls who are budding engineers, this bright turquoise hooded towel features a 'diggers and dumpers' construction trim.  Thick, soft and cosy, it's certain to entice them out of the bath or swimming pool to dry off.  An orange star-shaped popper can keep the towel wrapped shut like a poncho if desired for extra warmth and privacy.


  • Made from high quality 550g Egyptian cotton for premium absorbency and softness
  • A double thickness hood dries hair fast
  • ‘Pop’ the towel closed for warmth and privacy, un-pop it for a good rub dry
  • Towel measures 130cm across the width and 90cm from the top of the hood to the bottom of the towel (suitable for children up to approx. 7yrs, please refer to our sizing guide here)
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.

I have bought these as a present for grandchildren - from I have seen of them I am delighted.

So glad you are happy with the hooded towels you bought for your grandchildren Paula, many thanks for the kind review

Lesley Kent
Hooded towel

It is good quality but won't last very long at all. With the hood up the towel isn't dry long to keep my grandson cosy. He's only a little boy of 3 so we're a bit disappointed but it is nice

Hi Lesley, we're ever so sorry to read you were disappointed in the size of your grandson's hooded towel, towel length is quite a personal thing but perhaps a jumbo size would be better? We do offer returns and exchanges on any unused and unwashed items - please do contact us at hello@hoodedowls.co.uk. Thank you for your feedback and best wishes
