Blankaroo Baby: Quality Kids Clothes Made in Ottawa #Review #Giveaway ~ CAN

 Blankaroo Baby: Quality Kids Clothes Made in Ottawa

One of my goals this year was to be a more conscious consumer, especially when it comes to clothing for my family and I. In short, no more “fast fashion”, purchasing our clothing either from small businesses or second-hand instead. That’s one of the reasons I was thrilled when I was asked to test run some beautiful baby items from local one-woman shop, Blankaroo.

On my 6-month old boy, an organic hoodie in the softest, coziest fabric you’ve ever felt. For my 3-year old daughter, an organic t-shirt dress and for *all* of us, one of Blankaroo’s signature floppy beanies (it’s so stretchy it fits baby, toddler and my grown-up head!). I don’t wear hats that often, even in cold weather, but I was obsessed with this beanie and didn’t take it off all day! I will be buying these in multiple colours, and wearing them right through spring.

Each of Blankaroo‘s pieces is skillfully made by hand right here in Ottawa from the highest quality of fabric, in funky, fun, colourful designs. The first time my kids wore their outfits, several people stopped to ask me where I found them. Most importantly, the pieces are super comfy for the running, crawling and jumping that active kids are up to all day. Lastly, both the dress and hoodie are generously cut, so I know that they will last my kids for quite some time; they are definitely worth the investment.

In addition to the awesome pieces we tried, Blankaroo also makes blankets and other baby items, rompers, pants, shorts, headbands, as well as custom orders.
