Pipsy Koala Review

It's funny, after having four children, I always seem to forget all of the things that are needed as my children grow. You know what I'm talking about, I have to have a good old think every time I leave the house to make sure that I'm not forgetting something, I think I have wipes in just about every one of my bags now, an essential that is always needed!!!

Pipsy Koala is a company that produces a range of products that are effective and practical and they aim to make life with your baby just that little bit easier.

I was lucky enough to be sent a few of the items that they stock to see just how helpful they are. I was sent the booster seat, the automatic nightlight, the foam bath animals and one of their lovely 2014 calendars.

The booster seat has become a well used item in this house. It is both lightweight and easily portable as it folds into itself and has a handle making it easy to carry around, it is also small enough to be placed in a pushchair basket. 

With easily adjustable straps, padded seat and a wipe clean material, it is ideal for taking out if you know you will be eating in a restaurant. I can also see it coming in handy if you plan on going on holiday anywhere. 

The three point safety harness comes up high on the body and has a lot of adjustment to it, this makes it suitable to be used from 6 months and upwards. 

Extremely sturdy and simple to use, priced at £21.99, I would recommend this to everyone with a baby/toddler.

The automatic nightlight couldn't have come at a better time. Gracie has just started to get funny about being left in the dark and this product has solved that problem. Simply plug it into the wall and when it gets dark, the LED dome will turn on automatically. You can see from the picture below just how brightly it glows.

As morning comes, the light will automatically turn itself back off.What I really like is that they light itself is very soft and it doesn't retain any heat so there is no need to worry if your child decides to be a bit nosey and touch it.

Priced at £8.99, I think it is a bargain considering you get up to 50,000 hours of usage and they even off you a 3 year guarantee on it!

The girls all decided that the foam bath animals were their favourite Pipsy Koala item. Well the bath is their favourite place so added toys just makes it even better. You receive 10 animal shapes, these included koalas, kangaroos, emus, crocodiles and wombats. They came in a net bag that you can suction to the side of the bath for safe keeping once bath time is over. Layla was actually playing with them before bath time arrived.

Made from EVA foam, making them completely safe, ideal for me because Layla is at the stage where everything ends up in her mouth!! 

The girls found lots of games to play with them, sticking them to the side of the bath, plaing pairs, counting them and even giving them all names and doing role play with them and priced at a small £5.99 they cetainly provided hours of fun!!

Elise claimed the Pipsy Koala calendar, she has made sure to write all important dates for each month and has hung it up in her wardrobe, filled with lots of pictures of pictures, it is a great size and proves to be practical and fun.

Overall I highly recommend the Pipsy Koala products, they definitely do what they say, provide practical products that are not only reasonably priced but they lend that helping hand which is what every parent needs!! You can find out more by following them over on twitter and Facebook.

    We had one of those booster seats and it's brilliant! They're so handy for when you are on holiday or visiting etc - it's great for mealtimes and for sitting at the table playing :)

    1. We have used the nightlight every day since it arrived, I couldn't believe the price. I've never felt the need for a booster seat before but since we've got it has proved extremely handy!! x
