'kiddo designs' Review & Giveaway (Closed)

I am very excited to tell you about a new Etsy shop called kiddo designs by Nicole Peppler.  Her shop includes handmade items for children and she will be adding lots of new things soon including hats and headbands.  For this review, we were sent a long-sleeved bib in the Bright Owls on Brown pattern and I absolutely love the design.  I was kind of sad when I had to take it off after Aleena finished eating.  It was much nicer than what she was wearing underneath!  Maybe Nicole should consider making little dresses or shirts too as her sewing skills are really impressive and she has an eye for choosing adorable fabrics.

I love long-sleeved bibs especially when babies are just starting to eat more finger foods and when they are starting to use utensils.  They are really a necessity and this one is perfect because it has a nice lining underneath to stop drippy food from leaking through and it's very long which is usually our biggest problem these days.  Instead of the food getting all over her pants like it usually does, it just sat on the bib which was much easier for post-meal clean up.  I was trying to think of something constructive to say about how it could be improved but I really haven't come up with anything.  If anything, I am just eager to see what else Nicole is going to come up with for her new shop. The bib is really a beautiful, well-made product.  I also appreciate the tie string for the neck rather than velcro or snaps.  Based on my personal experience with Connor, snaps and velcro aren't much of a challenge for active toddlers who are determined to get a bib off.

I took quite a few photos of Aleena and the bib itself.  However, you should also check out Nicole's Etsy Shop for kiddo designs as her pictures are much better than mine and they show several views of each item as well as the variety of  patterns available.  As for sizing, bibs come in three sizes: Small (6-12 Months), Medium (12-24 Months), and Large (2T-3T).  Just for a point of reference, we received a medium-sized bib so you can keep that in mind when looking at the photos.  Aleena is almost 11 months old and just over 20 pounds.  Also, the bibs are machine washable in cool water and tumble dry. 

Here are the photos we took today!  There are lots because I wanted to show you how awesome everything was from the packaging to the quality of the bib itself.  I am very impressed!

As I said, pretty packaging!
