BeeBooBuzz Vests

BeeBooBuzz est

BeeBuzzBoo are a new company that only started up this year. They offer the market a selection of organic baby wear in bright colours. A British Brand, their products are also knitted, dyed and manufactured in Britain. At the moment they are offering long sleeve and short sleeve vests, but hope to expand in the future. Last month I was fortunate to win a set of 3 vests in a raffle, and here are my thoughts.

Colour:

The vests come in two sets, warm colours and cool colours. I choose the warm colours as I find red and orange very autumnal, so perfect for this time of year. When they arrived I was very impressed with the brightness of the colours. I have since washed them and not noticed any obvious fade in colour and still happy with how bright they are.

Style:

I have found the vests ideal for putting under our Duns and BeeBooBuzzdungarees and playsuits, and go really well with a lot of our scandi prints. The long sleeves are a good length, and also wider than other brands so look more like a top than a vest which I like. The neck is an envelope style so easy for putting over babies head. I usually prefer buttons/poppers as find some envelope styles get saggy when being worn but haven’t noticed this with these. The vest fits nicely over our cloth bum which is always a bonus in our house.

Cost:

A set of 3 costs between £21 and £23, which I find reasonable for the quality and that the item is made of organic cotton. The items arrived wrapped and gift boxed, so great for a gift to someone.

Overall:

I am very impressed with these vests and will be looking at getting myself some more soon. I have already recommend them to many different Facebook groups when people are looking for plain vests for layering up with. Great quality and a good price, plus organic and a UK Brand.

Tots Bots Element Prints 2017

elements 2017.jpgI have always been a fan of the Tots Bots elements prints, and the latest collection haven’t failed to impress. The set of 3, Whirl, Bee Kind and Rumble, are colourful, bright and fun.  Linking the always popular rainbow colours with popular theme such as bees and rain clouds, I can see these being a hit with cloth nappy users and collectors alike,

We’ve been testing out the EasyFit nappies with Beatrix. At 3 months she fits in birth to potty nappies on the lowest rise.

Absorbency:

These are our first TotsBots EasyFit Stars and I am very impressed with the absorbency of them. They lasted with no leaks between nappy changes, even when in the car seat and her sling for long periods. Beatrix didn’t seem to feel wet or uncomfy when her nappy was due a change either.

Fit:

The fit of the nappy was great and looked more secure and less ‘gappy’ than some of our others. Beatrix is only on the first set of poppers so has a lot of growing room in them. Beatrix is still quite narrow but we found the nappy fitted lovely around her waist.

Cost:

The EasyFit Star cost £17.99 per nappy and are designed to last from birth to potty training, so good value in our opinion

The new prints will be available in Easyfit, Teenyfit, PeeNut and in Wet Bags and Happy Mats. Visit TotsBots for more
