Alphabet Soup – Helping Young Ones Hold On To What They Love #Review and #Giveaway ~ CAN 12/22

This is one of my pet peeves!

My little ones still use pacifiers.  Sure, they help soothe my kids to go to sleep, but they also like to have them around the house from time to time.  When they do, they toss it when they no longer have use for it, and think that it will magically appear when they do.  If they can’t find it (they’ll look for about, oh, 2 seconds), I get asked about  its whereabouts, leading to a 15 minute search around the house until someone (either Dad, my eldest child, or myself) finds it.  We have used pacifier clips in the past, but then they, too, become lost!

When asked to review Alphabet Soup’s products, I was interested in how my kids would take to them, since they didn’t care for the other pacifying clips we’d bought for them.

Alphabet Soup is a company that specializes in creating pacifier clips, or ‘Baby Beads’ that can also hold a child’s favourite toy or a sippy cup so kids can have their favourite things close at hand.  They also sell Nursing Necklaces, or ‘Busy Beads’ to keep young ones occupied while breastfeeding.  Momma entrepreneurs, Vanessa and Tammy, became best friends, and wanted to create stylish baby essentials that were stylish and practical.  They love using crochet embellishments, along with wood and fun alphabet beads to make products that were a bit more personalized for each child.

When I received the items from Alphabet Soup, I was excited to rip the package open!  Once opened, the little ones flocked over to me, trying to get their hands on these new treasures!

My younger daughter really enjoyed the Busy Beads, as she is a bit of a diva herself, she loves jewellery!  Let’s just say it wasn’t easy to pry them out of her little hands!  My little guys also liked the Busy Beads.  He liked the texture of the crochet netting around them, and kept sliding them through his fingers.

My little girl also liked the BOHO Chic Baby Beads.  She didn’t necessarily like having the clip on her clothing, but she played endlessly with the beads, trying to attach them to many of her stuffed animals.  The young mister loved wearing the personalized Baby Beads.  It has his name on it, and there was a crochet penguin face by the clip which was so cute! It was my favourite one out of the ones available on the Alphabet Soup site.

Overall, my kids really enjoyed the Baby Beads from Alphabet Soup.  They were stylish and sweet, and were great at holding what my kids love close to them.  I would recommend them to the moms I know who have little ones, or who are about to have little ones!

Disclosure:  I received the above mentioned products to sample.  All opinions are honest and my own.
