Introducing: Little Hotdog Watson's Spring Summer 2023 Collection


Little Hotdog Watson Cub Hat in Turquoise with Toucan neck flap


Shop The New Collection.

The Little Hotdog Watson Spring Summer 2023 collection has launched! We may be biased, but this could be our best collection yet!

Be prepared to soar overhead like toucans, and stretch up tall like giraffes, as this collection we’ve decided to See the World Differently! Looking through the eyes of our little ones, we’ve created a collection as bright, vibrant and bold as they are.

Seeing The World Differently is kind of what we do here at LHW HQ, so why should our designs be any different? This collection is ready to dive head first into summer, so why don’t you come along to join the fun! Jump ahead and shop it now.


The Cub Hat in Giraffe and the Adventurer Bucket Hat in Turquoise 

Why Buy a Little Hotdog Watson Product?

This collection features all the quality and ingenuity you would expect from a Little Hotdog Watson product. With innovative materials, and a unique approach to childrenswear, our hats are built to last and take you on an adventure!

Our sun hats feature UPF 50+ fabric to protect little ones when out in the sun, and our Cub style hat features a neck flap to protect further.  They also feature an innovative coating of mosquito repellent to keep pesky mozzies at bay all summer long!

Our Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) 100% cotton yarn is woven in a solar powered mill.

We create a premium, fine but densely woven fabric, that is breathable, lightweight and comfortable. Meaning no more sweaty heads!


That's the science bit, let’s get down to our awesome new designs.



Little Hotdog Watson Cub Toucan Hat with neck flap 

 First up we have the Toucan Cub! Brighter than fireworks on a tropical island (trust us, that’s pretty bright), the toucan cub is here to take your little ones stylishly through summer. Featuring a neck flap, the cub protects little ones even on the sunniest days.


Little Hotdog Watson Turquoise Cub Hat with Toucan Trim 

If you love the toucan design, take a peek at the turquoise cub with toucan flap. The bright turquoise cub is trimmed with our toucan fabric, to add a little hidden touch of tropical. The neck flap can be rolled up, and the cap peak keeps little ones eyes out of the sun. All of our cub designs have the design feature of fabric ears, just a cute little touch!



 Little Hotdog Watson Cub Hat in Tropical Print with Banana Split trim


Talking of tropical, the cub hat has been given a tropical twist with not only our leaf print, but trimmed in our fun banana split print! If you love colour and bold prints then this is the hat for you. With all the innovative design features of a Little Hotdog Watson hat, it’s the perfect addition to any sunny day. Our UPF 50+ rated coating ensures protection from harsh UVA and UVB rays, and lasts the life of your product.


Little Hotdog Watson Cub in Giraffe Print 


Our little ones are a constant source of fun, laughter and inspiration. So much so, we’ve taken a design straight from the sketchbook of one of our smallest (and dare we say best) designers, H, for our super cool Giraffe Cub hat. Move over Camille Walala!


Little Hotdog Watson Adventurer Bucket Hat in Turquoise and Giraffe print


Flip reverse it with a reversible hat, and double the fun! Our adventurer bucket hat in turquoise can be reversed quickly and easily into our giraffe fabric. Featuring good quality, lightweight fabric, our hats can be easily popped in a bag: ready for when adventure strikes!

Reversible fabrics ensures that your hats can be paired alongside more outfits, making it a great investment. Our top quality fabrics are built to last, giving you a hat that stands the test of time, and can go to live a new life when your little one has grown!

Our reversible adventurer hat also comes in adult sizes, perfect for matching with your little ones and getting in on the fun this spring and summer.


Little Hotdog Watson Adventurer Bucket Hat in Tropical Leaf  

Buckets and spades, buckets of popcorn, bucket hats… clearly a great summer adventure requires a bucket! The classic and stylish adventurer bucket hat comes in our tropical leaf print, for all our wild and free little ones. Taking you from river picnics, rock climbing, balmy summer evenings to tropical islands: okay we might be day dreaming a little now! 

We had a great time shooting this collection, and we wanted to style up our new goodies with a mix of small businesses, high street and vintage. We were so lucky to work with amazing businesses like P-Denim, who make incredible responsbile kids denim for ages 0-10. Alongside their jeans, we featured pieces from the lovely gang over at Petite Belle . We can't wait to see how you style our latest creations!

Emma Watson, Owner, Little Hotdog Watson

After growing up in the North-west of England, Emma’s love of travel and style saw her career move to London with a fashion + business degree,  first working as a trend researcher then menswear buyer for some of the most famous stores in the UK. 


In 2015, having had her first baby she moved to Norwich to explore a family life closer to beaches and the countryside. Becoming a parent she found herself in a world of kidswear that didn’t look good or perform for the type of fresh air fun as a family so she set about creating her own brand. Little Hotdog Watson was born in 2016. The summer and winter hats for kids and adults, jam-packed with innovative protective technology have gone on to win awards, grace the pages of magazines, like Vogue, Grazia, Independent, Mother and Baby and celebrities alike. 


Emma had another daughter in 2019 and became a lecturer in Fashion and Business at Norwich University of the Arts.  She continues to design hats at her dining room table and share her passion to help families get outside more and explore the world.
