Tee-Pee-To by Ocho Maeve : Affordable children’s swimwear in Singapore

Joy has not always loved water. In the first few months of her life, she pretty much hated it (so I’ve never brought her to one of those baby spas), like so:

As she grew up, she became increasingly fond of water play, like so:

Example of baggy swimwear. If she swam with this set, it would have been much heavier than a set that fits her properly.

Joy is pretty tall for her age but skinny. This makes it a challenge to get her a suitable set of swimwear, because my basic criteria for swimwear is that it should be snug, not too tight (can cause irritation and chafing) and most certainly not baggy (can interfere with the swimming).

But now I’ve found Tee-Pee-To!

Long Sleeves Rashy in Tutti Fruity ($35), Shorts in Tutti Fruity ($25)

The brand has carefully thought out details that are necessary for children’s swimwear. Their separate swim tops are made extra long, to accommodate movements typical of children having fun with abandon. This means that their tummies are hardly exposed, even if they make huge movements, like fling their arms crazily around while running through water installations. #coughcough

One Piece Rashy in Indian Summer ($35) – Left photo represents the true colour of this piece, Joy does not have jaundice

Their one piece swimwear is thoughtfully manufactured with a v-shaped neckline that dips low enough before the zip portion starts. This means that Joy’s throat / neck area are unlikely to be hurt from the ends of the zipper, even if she engaged in rough play.

Long Sleeves Rashy in Honey Bee ($35), Peek-a-boo Skirt in Honey Bee ($28), Flap Hat in Honey Bee ($18)

Tee-Pee-To also have options for little girls who prefer to wear skirts everywhere, the skirting and peek-a-boo-pants attached provides adequate coverage without restricting movements. #theskirtisnotaskirt

The flap hat (which is also available in a manly version for the boys, if you prefer) protects their neck for playing in large exposed watermarks, so that you do not have to soothe a child suffering from sunburn on the neck after an epic outing.

Cookie Thermal Wetsuit ($98)

Tee-Pee-To carries thermal wetsuits for little ones as well. I’ve been looking for these ever since one experience where Joy’s lips turned purple from being too cold while having fun at Adventure Cove, Sentosa. She recovered pretty soon with some care, but it’s not something I’d like to repeat again.

The Tee-Pee-to thermal swimwear keeps our little ones warmer than your usual swimwear, good when you expect the water / environment to be cold. I brought Joy for a night session of waterplay at the rooftop water playground at Tampines 1 on a very cold night. It kept her warm enough to run through the water installations.

Joy still shivered after she got soaked with the icy cold water at the slightly deeper pool area, but I imagined it would be much worse if she had not worn her Cookie Thermal Wetsuit.

Ocho Maeve also carry related products like  swim caps, swim goggles, eye glasses, hats etc. I spotted this bucket hat. It is foldable, reversible and I was really sold on the design. We bought it!

Banz Bucket Hat, also available in Pink & Green / Aqua Sea ($39)

Tee-Pee-To swimwear are designed locally (go local!) and all of Tee-Pee-To’s swimwear have something in common – each piece is well made with good stitching and “cushioning” at appropriate places. The brand’s swimwear is also certified as having a Ultra Violet Factor of 50+, very important to have especially if you tend to spend hours under the sun.

A stripe of cloth where the zip is protects delicate skin from being hurt accidentally.

Their price range is value for money as you can see from the pricing indicated. I like it that they have lots of separates, when the little ones outgrow only the pants or only the rashy, just get what is needed in a larger size – there’s no need to throw out the whole set of swim wear.
