MOM REVIEW: SHOO-FOO BAMBOO BEACH TOWEL
PRODUCT REVIEWED ON: JULY 31, 2016
PRICE WHEN REVIEWED: $50
We are very fortunate to live close to a sandy beach. Because of it, we make sure we take full advantage of it during summer so the kids are able to get their beach craze in without having to drive to the west coast. Even though the weather has always been nice when we were out, as a mom, I’m always thinking about whether the girls are cold before, during and after at the beach. It is also important to me that all the items I use on my kids are non-toxic. The last thing I want is to put toxic products on them which could lead to potential health problems in the future.
I was able to obtain a luxurious and eco-friendly beach hooded robe from Shoo-foo for review.
The Bamboo Beach Robe is a terry hooded robe for 6-18 month olds with belt that can be snapped together. It is available in neutral color only. It is made with organic bamboo fabric and has a 400% absorbent rate compared to regular cotton. They also support Trees for the Future by donating 15% of their online sales!
HOW WE TESTED
My little one, Olivia is 18 months old and she was graciously volunteered by her mom (me) to do the review of the Bamboo Beach Robe. Olivia has quite a collection of beach robes at home and she’s pretty picky on what I put on her in the morning. However, as soon as I pulled out the robe, she happily let me dress her without any fuss. Perhaps the soft texture won her over instantly.
The ease of snap closure made it easy to take it on and off for the next few hours. The belt has snap buttons too to make the belt inaccessible to Olivia if she decided to play with it. Olivia happily wore her Shoo-Foo robe for a couple of hours while playing in the sand, eating snacks, and running around.
Lastly, I washed the beach robe three times since we first tested it. The fabric stayed true to size and remained soft. There was no evidence of fraying either. This easily became Olivia's go-to beach robe whenever we are at the beach or simply an outing to a water park.
MILK AND CONFETTI MOM VERDICT
Soft fabric, which makes it each on baby’s soft skin.
The snap button is easy to put the robe on and off.
After few washes, the fabric remain soft to the touch.
Limited color choice.
The hooded towel looks adorable on babies, however, I constantly worry about it being a choking hazard since it is prone to get caught on something.
One size for all – this is actually on the smaller side for Olivia.
