Bugalug Baby: Review and Giveaway

Giveaway open to US and Canada!



I'm always looking for cool new accessories for my girls, so I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to review some items from Bugalug Baby. I received a pony loop, a few barrettes, a headband, and a belt  for Frannie and Maggie to try out, and I was very pleased.

I mean, first of all, everything is adorable. Which, of course, matters. In terms of quality, I was also very impressed. Maggie FINALLY has long enough hair to work with (she was rockin' an awesome mullet for quite a while) and Frannie adores new hairwear, so the items have been put to good use. As promised, the barrettes (with a unique grippy strip) and pony loops hold very well (though, to be completely honest, my determined two-year old was able to work them out of her super-fine hair eventually, but it did take her a lot longer than usual!) And although I don't think I've ever actually purchased a belt for my kids, the one I was given looks very cute with Maggie's jeans, and the elastic and snap button are so practical.



The headbands are particularly brilliant because they have a little size adjuster on the bottom, which allows you to tighten or loosen the band as necessary. That was handy, because the girls could share a headband, and it will grow with them as well.



The prices are very reasonable for the products you're receiving. Items certainly aren't dollar-store cheap, but you're not getting dollar-store quality, either. No sweatshop junk here: these accessories, available in an array of colours and patterns, are hand-made by Canadian stay-at-home moms. (There are sales on the website to watch out for as well.)

Bugalug Baby is the place to go if you want to invest in some trendy-looking accessories that are going to work, and going to last. An excellent gift idea, too! Their tagline says it best: simple and sassy accessories that stay in place! And come on: if they're good enough for Brooke Shields' girls, aren't they good enough for ours? :-)





How would you like to go shopping at Bugalug Baby? I'm giving away a $25 gift certificate, which can be used for anything available on their site. (Shopping for baby boy? They also have boys' belts and multiuse Soother Savers!)

To enter: all you have to do to enter is visit Bugalug Baby's website and come back and leave me a comment about a product you like. This giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada.

Be sure to leave your email address in your comment, if it is not available on your profile. If I cannot contact you, you will be disqualified.

This is the first time I have heard of these products and I love the website! My favourite item was the Charitable Polka Dot Barrettes series where 100% of the sale goes to the Kids Help Phone organization! Love it!
