The sky is the limit when it comes to kids' bath towel choices. Your child can find a towel with her favorite cartoon character that makes the search for the ideal towel fun and exciting.

Hooded Towels

One of the most popular designs today for kids' towels is the hooded bath towel. These towels have been very popular for infants because the hood helps keep the baby warm while you wrap the rest of the towel around her body. However, hooded towels are not just for babies.

You can find a great selection of hooded towels designed for bigger kids. These terry cloth towels are soft and plush. You can find brightly colored towels in many different designs, such as mythical creatures, monsters, farm animals, wild animals, sea creatures and more.

Just don't be surprised if your child gets somewhat attached to her favorite hooded towel. She may use her towel as a costume or cuddle up with it while watching television.

Personalized Towels

Along with hooded towels, children love personalized towels. Anytime you can put a child's name on something, it makes that object special to the child. Who wouldn't want to use a bath towel with their name written on it? Now if they would only invent personalized soap, maybe it wouldn't be such a battle to actually get a child clean.

You can find personalized bath towels with fun patterns such as pirate ships, jungle animals, flowers, sports items, hearts and more. You can also have your child's name added on some hooded towels. In addition to personalized towels, you can have your child's initials placed on a monogrammed bath towel.

Bath Towel Sets

A great way to buy bath towels for kids is to buy a bath towel set. Most bath towel sets include a bath towel, hand towel and washcloth, although some towel sets only include the bath towel and a washcloth. At The Company Store, you can buy a bath towel set that includes a water resistant toiletry bag.

Disney Bath Towels

If your child is a big Disney fan, you can find bath towels with Disney characters on them. At Amazon, you can find many Disney character kids' towels including:

  • Winnie the Pooh
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
  • Cinderella
  • Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

Macy's also carries Disney hooded towels with characters from Toy Story, Cars and the Disney princesses.

Oversized Towels

Oversized bath towels for kids are not that easy to find. You can use a kids' beach towel as an oversized bath towel if you are unable to find one.

One place where you can find oversized bath towels for kids is the Colorful Childhood Store. These large, plush, hooded towels are big enough to use as beach towels. They were designed by a mom from Virginia named Wendy Carter. Carter was inspired to design these towels because of her oldest daughter's attachment to her beloved "ducky" hooded towel, which she had received on her first birthday. The little girl would not get out of the bath without this special towel. Mom Wendy has designed a total of 15 different kids' towels which will work for kids up to eight years old.

Organic Cotton and Bamboo Bath Towels

Most kids' bath towels are made of 100% cotton terry cloth. If your child has sensitive skin or allergies, you should consider buying bath towels made from organic cotton or bamboo. Organic cotton is guaranteed to be free of chemicals, pesticides and other toxins because it is grown by environmentally friendly standards. Bamboo is naturally antimicrobial and hypoallergenic. Bath towels made from bamboo fiber are naturally odor resistant and a great choice for those with sensitive skin. You can find organic cotton and bamboo kids' towels at Green and More and Toys R Us.
