Lets talk Dribble Bibs, they’re all the same right? Sadly not from my experience.
I recently had the opportunity to meet some of the wonderful team at Funky Giraffe, and was super excited when they agreed to a collaboration on a few of their products.
This first review is on their best-selling dribble bibs! (stay tuned for a super exclusive review of a new product next month!)
Now, my little man doesn’t really use dribble bibs anymore, so my friend who was after some new bibs for her little girl, and had heard others in her mummy’s circle rave about Funky Giraffe Bibs
practically begged kindly offered her daughter to take his place as official tester.
Meet E. Our lovely little lady who has come on board to help road test these bibs!
So now that we’ve met our official tester, let’s get onto the review…
ADVENTURESOFMUMMYANDME (& FRIENDS) REVIEW
Firstly, they’re soft. Sooo soft. Which is what you’d expect from a baby’s bib. This is because their fronts are made from a 100% cotton material which is certified by OEKO –TEX to be safe and free from all hazardous dyes. The backing is made from a polar fleece material, which locks in moisture to keep pesky dribble from soaking through, whilst staying breathable and lightweight.
The cut and shape of these bibs are styled in a bandana form; meaning that they fold naturally under the babies chin. This helps prevent the gaping effect often seen in traditional styled bibs, and subsequently helps to prevent moisture getting through to the skin or clothing underneath.
Each bib has a double popper system to allow for growth, which in turn means you don’t have to keep buying new bibs every few months (yay!).
One key selling point of these bibs for both my friend and I (and what originally drove me to their stand over others offering bibs at The Baby Show Olympia), was their fabulous range of colours and patterns. The stand itself looked like a rainbow had crash landed into the spot where their stand should be, and I was amazed at the amount of different options there were to suit every fashion-savvy baby and toddler.
The vast range of colours and patterns gives you the opportunity to find a design to match any outfit, taste or style. They even do a range of ‘Cutie Collars’ which include a frilly edging, and bow on the front for those occasions when you just want something with a little more pizzazz!
My friend loved the fact that Funky Giraffe also sell matching headbands for quite a few of their designs, so whether you have a boy or girl, that you can accessorise your little fashionistas to the max!
So what about washing?
Well, we put these bibs to the test, and washing on a 40c wash, then tumble drying, TWICE just to be sure, there was no shrinkage, miss-shaping or loss of colour on any of the bibs. Just being able to throw them into the tumble drier was a major win for my friend, who had previous bad experiences with other brands where the bibs were either not tumble dryer friendly, or they supposedly were and shrunk after only one wash. Not exactly busy-parent-friendly – So this ticked a big box in the #WIN section for us!
What’s the Cost?
These bibs start from £4 each on the Funky Giraffe website.
However they often run promotions online for buying in bulk, such as at the moment they are offering 10 bibs for £20, making them £2 each! Bargain!
We were really impressed with these bibs, particularly by the soft feel and wide range of colours and styles available. But the fact that they are adjustable to fit both younger babies and toddlers, coupled with the ability to put them into the tumble drier ensured that they came out with top marks from us. Plus, we think that Little Miss E looks super adorable in her polka dot cutie collar!
