Children wearing watermelon suits is China's hottest trend

It’s certainly the hottest trend in our book, anyway.

WE’VE HAD A lovely heatwave in Ireland this summer, but our temperatures were nothing compared to those experienced in other parts of the world.

In China, they’ve been experiencing record highs, with a temperature of 40.8° recorded earlier this month, so they’ve had to get creative when it comes to keeping cool.

One trend which has emerged is that of children wearing suits made of watermelon.

Apparently parents have been posting photos of their kids in melon-y attire on Weibo, although reports indicate that dermatologists don’t recommend it.

Frankly, we just wish they made watermelons large enough for us to wear.

Or indeed, for us to sit inside, this kid looks like he’s having a great time!
