Best Kids Bath Towels

Picking the best kids bath towels

We all want the very best for our children, including providing for them the best children's bath towels money can buy. Er, at least the best kids bath towels that will give them a nice warm hug when they finish bathing that will hold up under the stress of many, many cycles through the washer and dryer.

How to pick the best kids bath towels

Making a selection can be a bit daunting on the surface. In order to streamline the process we’ve broken the process down into simple steps that are sure to get you pointed in the right direction for your children. We’ve also provided a couple recommendations at the bottom of the page if you just want to cut to the chase.

Step 1: Select a material

When it comes to material selection there are 5 primary considerations: Egyptian cotton, Turkish cotton, Pima / Supima cotton, Microfiber, and Organic cotton. Because each material is unique and produces towels with unique qualities, we’ve written extensive articles that are definitely worth a review if you’re serious about making an informed decision.

Step 2: Select a style

When it comes to style selection there are a handful of variables. Younger kids love fun character-based patterns (Elmo anyone) while older kids wouldn’t be caught dead in them. Younger kids also love hooded bath towels, which are super fun, but, again, not so much for the older kids. Then you’ve got to consider your interior decorating. Are you happy with the kids bathroom looking like a kids bathroom with bright colors and crazy towel patterns or do you want it to blend nicely with the grown up parts of your home?

Because these decisions are so specific to your unique situation, there is no right or wrong answer. We simply hope we’ve been able to help you get the wheels turning as you narrow down the possibilities. 

Step 3: Pick your perfect towel

Once you’ve picked your towel material and towel style, the rest is easy… just head over to Amazon or out to your local Target, WalMart, Bed Bath and Beyond, Macy’s, etc. and get to shopping.

As a shortcut, we’ve included some Amazon bestsellers below that just may fit the bill perfectly.
