I have two little boys myself, and prior to the launch of Mini Sandcrabs in 2011, finding protective swimwear they felt excited about wearing was a huge challenge. In Australia’s scorching sun, looking after children’s delicate skin is at the forefront of many parents’ minds, but the drab choices available in protective kids bathers can be disappointing. Our line of swimwear is designed to be the best of both worlds. All our products are rated UPF50%, meaning they block 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. Unlike most protective swimsuits, they come in a wide variety of exciting colours and prints to suit every discerning kid’s taste. Whether your mini sandcrab needs the all-over protection offered by a sunsuit, or just wants to hang out at the beach in a cool pair of board shorts, suit him up in one of our sun-smart products and put your mind at rest.
For an adjustable level of protection, layer a pair of swimshorts or boardshorts with a kids rashie. Even your littlest sandcrabs can wear our products since we stock sizes for kids all the way from 3 months to 12 years of age. Our rashies are soothing for delicate babies’ skin since we only use soft, breathable, chlorine-resistant Italian fabric. Durable material also means our swimsuits will hold their colour and shape through repeated exposure to indoor pools, which are usually heavily chlorinated.
Our fun, funky designs are made to mix and match. The signature Mini Sandcrabs look is a pair of swimshorts or boardshorts matched with a short or long-sleeved kids rashie. Whether your little boy likes stripes, prints, or solids, there’s a good chance we stock something he’ll love. Browse our collection and place an order online, or find our swimwear in a children’s boutique near you.
No matter what level of coverage your little girl needs, or which colour is her favourite, our funky, fashionable kids swimwear range is sure to have her perfect fit. With styles like striped Sunshine, funky Coolum Aquamarine, or bright Golden Glow, finding a protective swimsuit that your little girl will love to wear has never been easier.
For long days at the beach, or when the UV-index is particularly high, a short or long-sleeved sunsuit or rashie is a smart choice. Remember, all our products are rated UV50+, so your mini sandcrab will only need sunscreen on uncovered areas to stay protected through a full day in the sun! Since we use breathable and soft materials, your little one will not only look adorable but feel completely comfortable throughout the day. Sensitive skin loves our cozy, lightweight Italian fabric.
When the weather cools down and it comes time to switch from the beach to the pool, it’s natural to worry about the harsh effects of chlorine on your children’s skin — not to mention the havoc it can wreak on most brands of swimwear! Chlorine gradually degrades the shape and colour of many fabrics, but you can put your mind at rest with Mini Sandcrabs kids bathers, since they’re durable and chlorine resistant. No sagging or fading here — our quality products will hold their shape through countless hours of swim and play, and there’s no need to be extra fussy with washing and drying. Most importantly, chlorine resistance offers an extra layer of protection for your little girl’s delicate skin.
Our products are easy to mix and match. Layer any swimsuit or bikini with a zip-up kids or babies rashie for adjustable coverage, or pair a cute pair of swimshorts with a rashie for the signature Mini Sandcrabs look. We make a point to offer tons of variety in our line, since one of the main principles behind Mini Sandcrabs is designing products kids love to wear. Why not let your little sandcrab put together a complete outfit from her favourite colours?
