I love my WooBee and B Blanket’s from Rain or Shine Kids.  The ‘B’ Blanket is in the picture below.  It’s the super mod, soft, plush feeling baby carrier blanket covering Violet in the Baby Bjorn.  It ties on and I can flip it up to cover her head in the sun.  But it is SO much more.

All Comfy for Our Walk

My family uses these blankets every dayand we have since I bought our Woobee for Sophia in 2006 when she was just a baby.  All my babies have stayed cozy and dry wherever we go!  Here is Violet with the WooBee!

I contacted Rain or Shine Kids to tell them how much I LOVE these blankets and they offered to send me their newest blanket for review as well as provide one for my readers.  You can win your own beautiful ‘B’ Blanket!

We have already covered my huge crush on MacGyver and my belief that all things made for babies and small children should attempt to behave like this magnificent always ready with a solution man! 

That is to say, stuff for kids should be pretty simple, very sturdy and really USEFUL.  When it is possible, children’s items should be good for more than one thing and more than one age.  The WooBee and ‘B’ Blankets pass all of my silly tests!

The Facts

1.  This really is a water resistant mini picnic blanket.  These blankets are unbelievably cozy on one side and water resistanton the other.  This makes it an indispensable piece of baby gear.  With one thing you can keep drops of rain off your kids and keep them warm.  On a baby playdate you can have one blanket for stroller, park and inside.  Picnics fly by with totally dry tushies!   I love it!

2.  There are 2 ties on the upper part of the blanket so that it can be attached to a stroller or car seat or used as a nursing cover.  Like my actual nursing cover – Miles and Sophia also use these as capes too.  A multi-tasking blanket!  Yep – Violet is under there and able to eat while we play outside in 50 degree weather.  Perfect!

There is enough room above the ties to flip this part up if you need to cover the baby’s head to shield her from rain or sun!

 3.  The quality is excellent.  My Cow print Woobee Blanket is now more than 3 years old and has been washed many many times and it still looks as good as new!  Now Violet gets to use it!

4.  The patterns and fabrics are awesome.  The Woobee is available in tons of colors and 3 fun prints including the Cow Ranch print shown above.  The ‘B’ Blanket is made out of polar fleece (think fuzzy and warm) and is available in the Rings pattern that I received as well as a pink Sunburst pattern and a blue Squares pattern. 

5.  Rain or Shine Kids is a mom owned and operated company and these blankies as well as their bibs and burp cloths are all made in the USA in the pacific northwest.  Gotta love that!

Overall

I use these every day.  I keep them in my stroller and we literally use these blankets to keep warm, to keep dry, to have picnics…basically these blankets help us to enjoy the outdoors no matter what the weather.   The only thing I might change is to add a snap on each side so that when it is used as a car seat cover it is not hanging way off the edge and can be snapped up.  That’s a tiny thing though.  These blankets get a big huge Mommy Words Woo Hoo!
