BundleBean Go! Review

BundleBean is something that was created by the lovely Emily Goodall, who as a mum to two children herself got overwhelmed by the amount of things that were needed when taking her little ones out, things such as changing mats, blankets and waterproofs. I'm sure many of you parents have had the same problems.


The BundleBean Go! is a product that takes all of the fuss out of those daily outings with your family.
It not only provides a brilliant alternative to footmuffs, cosytoes and blankets on the pushchair but it can also be used on car seats, baby carriers and it can even be used as a playmat/ picnic blanket.



I was sent the BundleBean Go! a couple of weeks ago to test out and review, I chose it in pink spot, however it is also available in blue spot, red star and plain black, great for boys and girls alike!!

This clever product is made out of a waterproof nylon on one side, keeping your little ones nice and dry, I love this because a lot of footmuffs etc are great for keeping your child warm but aren't so great if it was to start raining and you were without a raincover. The waterproof material on the BundleBean means you don't have to worry if you get caught short as such. On the other side it is backed with a gorgeous fleece material which means your children stay snug as a bug in a rug!!

At the bottom of the BundleBean, there are two zips, one either side which are adjustable, these are what tighten the bottom to create an elasticated pouch that you can fit around your pushchair, car seat or even a bike seat.


Now I wouldn't be giving an honest review if I didn't test the BundleBean out and see if it really was as versatile as promised. The only method I couldn't try was on a bike seat because I have to admit I do not own a bike, not a lover of cycling I'm afraid.


First I tried it on my Graco Evo Mini which is a front facing pushchair, simply doing up the velcro straps around the frame and securing the elasticated bottom around the foot rest. As you can see there is a handy pcoket on the front that your children can pop their little hands in, no need to fight to get them to keep gloves on their hands!!


Then I tried it on my Quinny Xtra in parent facing mode and as you can see from the second picture, I secured it by doing up the velcro straps around the back of the seat unit.


Layla got all excited the next time she was put in her car seat. She was most definitely one snug baby. Again I fastened the velcro round the back of the seat and then rolled the top of the BundleBean down so that she could have her arms out. There are velcro tabs at the bottom of the cover so that you can fit the bottom of it nice and securely.


Being a massive babywearing fan, I then tried it on whilst I had Layla wrapped up in a sling. This I think is when I found it most useful as it can stop not only your little but your carrier from getting wet as well. Simply attached by doing up the velcro around my neck and because the top of the BundleBean can be folded up or down, it meant Layla could have her arms out but I could also cover her up if needed. 


And lastly the BundleBean got used as a blanket/playmat. Unfortunately with the lovely British weather we haven't managed to take it out on a picnic trip yet, however it is most definitely going to be taken out in the great out doors. The fleece material makes it nice and comfy for your children's bottoms and when laid out flat it is fairly spacious, as you can see from the picture above, Layla was quite happy playing away on it. 

And if all this hasn't persuaded you, look at how compactly it folds down when not in use.


The BundleBean Go! really is very versatile. Suitable for newborns and upwards and priced at at only 29.99, I really think every mum should have one. It is one of those things that I wish I had found sooner. Makes for a lighter changing bag and less things for my baby brain to remember.

  8. First of all, there is Justice Baxter, the owner, WHO is super cool. he is the kilted one on the left within the ikon. I asked somebody concerning the name and every one i used to be told is "his folks were hippies". honest enough. Anyway, Justice solicits additional client feedback than any search owner I've seen. he is perpetually mistreatment facebook to survey what his customers need most from his store.

    If that weren't enough, the shop often hosts "customer appreciation parties", cluster rides, and bicycle lessons of every type. Sometimes, it feels additional sort of a club and than a store. that's my favorite quite bike search.
