At Tom & Teddy, we definitely know a thing or two about the beach: when to go; what to wear; what to take; what not to take! We’ve spent many long sunny days on the sand in Australia and beyond so it’s safe to say that we’re now bone fide beach pros! We know how to keep the kids amused and safe, and we’re experts at making beach-time fun and hassle-free. In this special summer edition of the Tom & Teddy Magazine, we’re sharing all our beachy secrets (and we’ve thrown in some top tips from our beach-loving friends too)!
