When my friend Cé mentioned the BundleBean a few weeks ago, I had no idea what she was talking about. She is the queen of shopping, practical stuff and good deals so I generally trust her and buy whatever she recommends. Easy!
The BundleBean is a rectangular fleece blanket backed with a waterproof nylon shell. It can be used as a play mat or picnic blanket when kept flat.
Pulling up the zips at the extremities of the BundleBean turns it into a pouch that can be fitted around the bottom of a pram, car seat or bike seat. This 5-in-1 travel cover is waterproof, warm and easy to fit. It can be used from birth and is ideal for older children who have grown out of their cosytoes. It fits on any car seat, bike seat, sling or pram.
The BundleBean also has two elastic and Velcro straps to secure it in place as two loops (ideal around the straps of a baby carrier or the bars of a pushchair), attached to each other or doubled over each other around the back of a buggy car seat or bike seat. When not needed, it rolls up into a neat little bundle.
I have been testing it out for the past few weeks, and I would not do without now I have it. Its clever design means it can be used in a range of ways, and any item that serves several purposes is always a winner in my books. I will always pack it when travelling with my little ones.
So far, we have used our BundleBean as a raincover, footmuff, car seat blanket, babywearing coat extension, picnic blanket, changing mat, roof for a den… It is an all-in-one essential that saves money in the long term as you just need to buy one thing and use it in many different ways.
My toddler, who used to hate being in a cosytoes, does not mind me putting the BundleBean over her. Her movements are not too restricted and she feels warmer. Win, win!
I would really recommend the BundleBean to any new parents. To me, it is not a gadget; it is an essential item for my children.
