People often ask me what baby items I could not live without and top of my list is bibs. Jacob is such a sickly and dribbly baby that he has to wear a bib all the time and I have found that the ones that I brought from the shops before he was born are just not up to the job , as his dribble and sick quickly seeps through them onto his clothes making them wet and I have to change his clothing several times a day as his little chest gets damp.
So when Funky Giraffe asked if I would like to review there bibs I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try a new company out and also to see if I could find a bib that actually worked.
Funky Giraffe is an online baby shop that predominantly sells baby bibs but also sells some other products such as hats, scratch mittens and socks. And they stock an absolutely huge selection of trendy bandana style bibs there really is so many to choose from and a design to suit every mum and baby out there.
We were asked if we would like to review there new personalised range , and you all know that I am a sucker for anything personalised for my children. As I have two little ones 17 month old Sophia and 3 month old Jacob I was able to select them a bib each. As the bibs are personalised you get to design the bib yourself which is really easy to do, you just visit the Funky Giraffe website click on personalised then you pick which colour you would like I opted for pink for Sophia and green for Jacob. Then you get a choice of different personalisation options you can add a image from the ones available or design your own idea completely. You then add text such as the child's name in a colour, font and size that you want. Then once you are done you preview the bib and if you are happy you place your order its as simple as that.
When the bibs arrived I was really impressed they felt so soft and you could tell they are made to a high quality, they have a fleecy backing to help keep baby nice and dry - perfect for a dribbly baby like Jacob. There is two poppers on the back of the bib to fasten it so that you can adjust the size of the bib. Sophia's bib has a big S on and her name and Jacobs has his name and date of birth on which will make a lovely keep sake to keep in his baby keepsake box. And the bibs looked exactly like the ones that I had designed.
We have been using the bibs for a few weeks now and they have been washed a few times and they still look like new they have not faded or gone funny in the wash like some bibs do. And they really have helped stop Jacob getting so damp when he dribbles. I really love these bibs as they look really nice with babies little outfits. We have even been asked by people where we got them from as they are so much nicer then bibs available to buy in the shops.
I would highly recommend Funky Giraffe to anyone and I will certainly be buying more as you can buy five selected bibs for only £11.25 - a real bargain. Personalised bibs start at £5 and would make a lovely keepsake or would be great for a special occasion such as a birthday. They are delivered by first class Royal mail and mine just fitted through the letterbox so I didn't have to wait in for the delivery. Postage is free on all orders over £7 within the UK.
They also have a lovely range of Christmas bibs which I am planning on buying each of my children for Christmas and I will also be taking advantage of there five bibs for £11.25 offer for Jacob as they look great, keep him dry and with a baby you really can never have to many bibs. The only hard part will be choosing some as they are all so lovely I want them all. Why not go and have a look for yourself at www.funkygiraffebibs.com
