Hoodsbee: The Hoodie That Becomes a Friend

FFR image for posts

Hoodsbee_Logo_450_Theme

 

 

Hoodsbee is an innovative hoodie that transforms into a plush friend or a plush friend that transforms into a hoodie. With Hoodsbee, there are so many options. This unique patented technology allows your little one to carry their travel plush buddy, put it on when it is cold, fold it back up into a plush and use it as a head pillow for when they are tired. It’s as easy as 1,2,3! Fold, roll and snap! Now, not only do you have a pillow and a travel companion, but you also have a nicely wrapped up hoodie that is easy to store or travel with.

Hoodsbee was created when the design team at HLL design was trying to come up with a new kind of character hoodie jacket that could have a rolled up function into the hood.  After seeing the shape it created, they added arms, legs, eyes and ears to the hood to make it look more like a plush toy.  But it was still just a jacket rolled into the hood.  They found that by pulling the sides tightly together and fastening them in a specific spot, along with the front of the hood being fastened as well, that it kept everything nice and compact, tight and clean looking. And thus, hoodsbee was created.

Our Review:

We were able to review the boys Hoodsbee character “Clobber the Wrestling Monster” in size 7

Hoodsbee

Clobber the wrestling monster is made of black Polar Fleece with Charcoal grey 2×1 Cotton/spandex rib cuffs and hem band. The hood is lined with charcoal grey Polar Fleece so that it is warm and soft on the inside too.  The red zipper is a heavy duty, molded plastic and matches the taping around the neck for a clean look and feel. 

The blue, green and red arms and horns are also made of Polar fleece and stuffed with goodness (and poly filing). Clobber’s blue nose is felt with a satin stitch embroidery along the edges. The teeth are felt as well, double layered with edge stitching and a cool raw edge finish. The eyes are double layered as well and accented with a thick hand stitch look embroidery in contrast thread. The button eyes have blue stitching to match the blue horn and make this jacket a “monster” of a good time to wear.

This is such a confortable and fun hoodie for children! it is made of nice soft materials so no complaints of “itchiness” and the colors are wonderful! As you can see in the photo above the Hoodie was well received! It will be a favorite to wear until it is outgrown. We did get a size larger than we normally wear just in case the size ran small. But as you can see he has room to spare so sizes are pretty much on target with national brands. If you are looking for the item to be an exact fit … it does run true to size. But when i doubt order one size up like we did and they will have plenty of room to grow into the cute hoodsbee!

Here is a picture of the character our hoodsbee rolls up into…can it be any cuter?

LittleMissMatched Zany Sneakers

FFR image for posts LittleMissMatched!

LittleMissMatched started with a very simple mission: Build a girls’ clothing brand that is FUN, inspires CREATIVITY, embraces individual STYLE and CELEBRATES SELF EXPRESSION.

LittleMissMatched carries girls clothing in sizes 4-12, including: pjs, socks, undies, clothing and accessories.


Our Review of LittleMissMatched Zany Sneakers

LittleMissMatched -logo-new-42e990d65af4c828f689b06c1dbcd212

I let my daughter pick out a pair of sneakers and she picked what I thought she would: LittleMissMatched Zany Sneakers, which retail for $39.00 and are on sale $23.99. They are pink with silver rhinestones. They are lace up so be aware in case you have a child who does not yet tie their own shoes.

FFR Little MisMatched Glitter & Studs Pink  Sneakers_ Collage

She really likes her new sneakers. She loves the pink and shiny colors! She says they are comfortable. So far they are holding up pretty well, though she is using them for going out sneakers NOT for around the farm.

GoodNites* TRU-FIT* Review and Giveaway

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for GoodNites* TRU-FIT*. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

goodnites-logo

Did you know that….

“According to a GoodNites® brand study, it’s estimated that 1 in 6 children between the ages of 4-12 in the United States suffer from nocturnal enuresis, more commonly known as bedwetting”

More than 40% of parents find it frustrating and feel that bedwetting can be “trained” out of a child.

goodnites-tru-fit-underwear-starter-packs

Accidents happen – even for big kids once in a while. I dealt with a similar issue when I was a child. I used to sleep so tight and I never realized that I had an accident. My daughter has the same problem. It’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed by, it’s not her fault.

Well, thankfully GoodNites® developed a product called TRU-FIT*. They are undies with a plastic liner that you put a disposable insert in. The starter pack comes with 2 pair of machine washable underwear and 5 disposable inserts for boy or girls. GoodNites* TRU-FIT* are available at retailers nationwide.

“87% of Moms that tried the product said that TRU-FIT* will make their kids more confident.”

Goodnites 3

We received the girls with a purple pair and a purple striped pair of underwear. They are cute and fit my daughter well. They do give her more confidence and that make this Momma feel much better too.  I will admit the inserts are a bit long and are tough to get into the underwear. Once they are on your child, just make sure they are not all bunched up in the front or back. That can be uncomfortable for your child. We have found these are working well for us. I do make sure my daughter uses the bathroom before she goes to bed each night also.

Giving your child support is the main thing if they have an accident. They don’t even realize this is happening.  This is not something that can be “trained” out of them. The child is already probably feeling bad about themselves and need you, as the parent, to let them know that this is okay and you will get through it together.

Minnie Mouse Costume Review

FFR image for posts

It’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween costumes!  Wholesale Halloween Costumes has a huge line of costumes for every budget and person in your family.

Minnie 1

We received this adorable Minnie Mouse Costume for my daughter (About Minni Mouse). The package came with the dress and ears.  The costume is mostly polyester material. The headband does not have teeth on it, making it easy on your child’s head (I wore the headband myself for about a half hour and it didn’t hurt my head, either).

minnie 2

My daughter looks delightful and ready to have fun in this Queen of Disney costume.  She said it was comfortable and it fit her well.  The costume was easy to put on and has Velcro on the back by her neck.

You can order this costume or choose from many that Wholesale Halloween Costumes offers!

Matilda Jane Clothing – Ode to Shoes

FFR image for posts

It’s that time of year again where we are thinking about summer clothes and switching out wardrobes, but if your weather is anything like the Chicagoland you may have experience snow showers early this morning! So we were digging out the winter clothes again. I know I wore my woolly socks and ear muff headband!

FFR Matilda Jane Dress_3

My youngest daughter received a cute little dress from Matilda Jane Clothing, called Ode to Shoes Tank Dress (Retail $50). It’s a brightly colored tank dress that works perfectly with a pair of leggings.

I really like Matilda Jane clothing. It’s well made, the fabric is thick, not thin cheap stuff. It arrives in a neat package making the receiver feel special from the onset.

This dress is perfect for casual wear or even for church. I would have preferred it be longer but realize longer length dresses are hard to find these days.

I participated in this program on behalf of Carter’s and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Carter's Spring Coupon

It is hard to think about spring clothing when the temperatures are still in the negatives and I am wearing triple layers, but being optimistic and knowing spring is just around the corner, literally only 20 days away, I did just that this week.

Carter's Spring Collection Collage_!

Carter’s Baby and Kid Up to 50% Off Sale is the perfect time to stock up on great play wear essentials or church clothing, which was my goal for our little boys.

Just in Time for Christmas….RUUM Kids

FFR IMAGE

Christmas is just around the corner and I am still working on my Christmas shopping list. This past week my youngest daughter and I went shopping at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. It’s been a long time since we’ve gone to the mall. We had a lot of fun! We were clothes shopping for Blondie since she needs a few more pants for winter and we had a gift card to RUUM Kids (pronounced “Room” and formerly 77Kids).

FFR RUUM Kids Sign

RUUM Kids had a 40% off sale going on so we took advantage of those savings.

FFR RUUM Kids 40 OFF

Blondie is seven and she is a girly-girl, which is amazing since she is smack dab in the middle of four boys! Her taste in clothing steered her towards this sparkly holiday dress:

FFR RUUM Kids Sparkly Dress

Gotta love her style! It’s beautiful but I had to tell her no because she has plenty of dresses and this dress though it was 30% off was a bit out of our budget right now. We were shopping for winter pants.

That led us to the 40% off rack. We ended up getting two pairs of sparkly pants. I thought it was a nice compromise for her. She got her sparkle and glitter and I got her warm clothes!

FFR RUUM Kids Sparkly Pants

She also found a sparkly butterfly t-shirt and hair gold band that coordinates really well with both colors of pants she choose. Nearly all of RUUM Kids clothing coordinates well with each other.

I also found a couple of things for our younger boys that I put away for their Christmas gifts.

FFR Christmas Gifts from RUUM Kids

All and all Blondie and I really enjoyed our day out (we went grocery shopping at Mariano’s too!). Blondie loved the VIP treatment she received while shopping at RUUM Kids – choice of a candy treat (RUUM Kids employees asked me first before giving anything to her). When we checked out Blondie was asked if she wanted her own bag, which of course she did, and then employee personalized it by putting her name on it! Blondie loved it!

FFR RUUM Kids at Woodfield Mall

When we got home Blondie modeled her clothes for me. Everything fit perfectly.

FFR Blondie in RUUM Kids Purple Outfit

We were very happy with our RUUM Kids purchases.

FFR Blondie in RUUM Kids Blue Outfit

RUUM Kids has lots of gift ideas including headphone hats ($19.50) and texting gloves ($9.50) for the hard to buy for tweens, and layering pieces with coordinating accessories for all ages. RUUM sizes range from newborn to age 14. Find RUUM Kids on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to day for holiday specials. Right now they have a 25% off code for online just for this weekend only.

Cool City Threads and Giveaway!

Faith and Family Reviews received the following product in exchange for writing a review. While we consider it a privilege to receive products to review, our reviews are our honest opinion and thoughts of the product.

It’s getting colder and packing away the summer clothes is on my to-do list, as well as doing inventory of our children’s clothing to see what they need, what they have grown out of and what needs to be replaced. We just bought socks this week! I detest socks so we do not replace or wear them in the summer. Socks are so hard to keep paired in this family. Imagine 20 socks each time we all wear a pair!

Clothing makes for nice Christmas gifts too. Our five year old received a gift set recently from City Threads, which has a wide selection of cool weather clothing just for kids!

Here’s some quick info on their line of clothing:

– girls and boys everyday collection
– spans sizes 0 to 14
– known for twists on American style favorites
– includes tees, hoodies, cords, leggings, twill pants, underwear, pjs and hats

City Threads is a made in the USA children’s clothing company, making it a real American apparel company. It is family owned by a husband and wife team, Shayna Samuels and Joe Willis. Prices reflect quality. It is more expensive to produce clothing here in the U.S. than it is to outsource it to China, the Philippines or Mexico, but being made here creates jobs for Americans. City Threads clothing is well-made. They have children’s clothing for baby, girls and boys, as well as a big sister, big brother line for kids ages 0 through 14.

Unfortunately, I have not washed his shirt or boxers yet, but I am inclined to think it will wash up quite nicely from the feel of the material. I’ll update this post when I get them in the wash. I asked “Nook” to save his shirt for “nice” a.k.a. going out because he already has far too many “farm” shirts!

City Threads Football tee

Below you will see “Nook” modeling up a storm in his City Threads 2Fer Football in Air Denim Blue w/Football Scoreboard Sleeves 100% cotton (retail $40.50) and Boxer Briefs in Elf Green 100% Cotton Baby Rib (retail $10.50) – we thought they were short shorts at first! ;)

I told “Nook” to pose in his City Threads and this is what he did:

City Threads Collage

Quite the ham, eh?

We really like these two items from City Threads. It’s a great line of children’s clothing. You can find City Threads on Twitter and on Facebook. For your information, City Threads offers FREE shipping on all orders over $40.

City Threads Giveaway

Enter to win a City Threads prize valued at at least $40!
