WooBee and 'B' Blanket for Rain or Shine! {Review and Giveaway}

Blanket for Baby Carrier, Stroller, Car Seat, Picnics, Playdates and…nursing cover!

{This giveaway has now ended.  Thank you for entering!}

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.

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!

Cuddly and Warm in the Stroller

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!

    Another great product Brittany! Looks fantastic. If I were to win, I would be using this product for my sweet girl, Sydnie. Or I might even give it as a gift to my new niece, Kamdyn.

    Hi! Wow this sounds like a pretty amazing blanket with so many uses! I would love to win this for my coworker who is due in August! We live in NYC, and with riding the subway, a nursing cover would come in handy! thanks!!

    I would love to use this for my 4 month old son who LOVES to be outside but absolutely HATES to have son in his eyes, or be cold. He loves to go on walks but I live in Oregon and it can get quite chilly, very fast, so it’s nice to have a blanket on hand that is waterproof and can be used on the ground and used to keep him warm, as well. Those are awesome little things, for sure!

  6. says

    Hi friend!

    I’d use this right now as a picnic blanket since the weather is getting so nice, but come August when Baby X is here, it will be all him/her, I’m sure!

  7. Nicole says

    Oooh!! Something new & fuzzy to try!! I think Maizie would probably use them as a cape, ala Miles & Sophia….but for the new baby it looks like a great little blanket to plop her on in the shade at the park with big sister!

  8. Bethany A says

    I am also a fan on Facebook as well!
    Love the looks and functionality of the blankets! Would be awesome for our little boy when he gets here!

    • Bethany A says

      Forgot to say how we would use it! My daughter will be playing tee ball this summer so we will be at the park a LOT! We would use it as a blanket to lay on in the grass, cover up in the stroller or carrier, and also as a nursing cover.

  9. Danielle Pritchard says

    I would use this extremely cute and functional blanket for my 2 little boys aged 3 and 9 months. :)

  10. Dawn Walsh says

    I think this is awesome thing to have. Every parent needs one. I think the squares b blanket would be my choice and then all those woobees.

  11. Eco-Snipits says

    I’d get this for my new little muffin that is currently on it’s way! What a great product.

  12. Teresa D says

    This blanket would be for my 3 month old son. We would use it everywhere because it is so much more convenient than the bulky blankets we use now!

  13. Marlene V. says

    Thanks for the great giveaway:) I would love to win this for my niece — it would be great for the car, picnics and her stroller.

  14. Jen says

    Hi Brittany!
    I’m from grads and would love this woobie for our new little guy, arriving in August, 2010! :)

    LOVE YOUR BLOG SO MUCH! ~Jen

  15. Cheryl Long says

    Seems like a great product Brittany! I’d use it for my little man Gavyn who should be arriving in the next month. I’m sure it would get lots of use with the Northeastern spring weather that we get here in PA. I’m sure Kelsea would love it as well.

  16. says

    Wonderful! I had never heard of these, but they seem great. I’ve got my 2-yr-old Fuss and a baby on the way, so I know I’d get a lot of use from it! How fun!

  17. Erica says

    If I won this super cool blanket I would use it this Spring and Summer to get out and enjoy the weather with my little winter baby girl. I can’t wait to take her out to all our local parks and festivals and this blanket would make a great picnic blanket.

  18. Teresa D says

    I would use this constantly for my 3 month old son. I would use it in the stroller, in the cradle, in the playpen.

  19. Teresa D says

    I would use this for my 3 month old son. I love the fact that it is water and drool resistent, I would use it always!

  20. Teresa D says

    I would use this constantly for my 3 month old son. I would use it in the stroller, in the cradle, in the playpen and especially when nursing in public

  21. Teresa D says

    This blanket would be for my 3 month old son. We would use it everywhere because it is so much more convenient than the bulky blankets we use now!

  22. Cat Cummings says

    Well Brit, you sold me! What Mom doesn’t want a multi-use item?! I love the idea that my newborn Leila (who should be here within the next week or so!) can be safe from the rain and cold here in NY…..whether using it as a stroller cover or a Carrier cover! AND I LOVE that I can also use it to breastfeed her discreetly! Not to mention my 6 year old can throw it on as a cape and turn into ‘Super Big Brother’ and help mommy while feeling special at the same time :). What a GREAT product!!! With this product it prevents the already busy mom from having to PACK multiple items since this is many things all rolled into one!! Love it!!

  23. Teresa D says

    I would use this for my 3 month old son. It would be great for use everywhere as it would be drool proof, and not get soggy like a regular blanket!

  24. Kat says

    Well, I was going to say I would give it to one of my best friend’s for her 3 month old baby girl, but I just might be tempted to keep it as a picnic blanket/cape for Liam!!! lol! Very cool…and seeing you use it as a nursing cover actually made me miss those days…sniff, sniff.

  25. Paige M says

    I can already see so many uses for a WooBee. Baby #2 arrives in 2 days…cue the nursing cover/baby carrier cover! For my 3-year-old, I see the multi-purpose big-brother cape/picnic/parade blanket taking shape :) I am astounded at the fantastic products that are available today. This is a great one!

  26. Teresa D says

    I would love this blanket for my son. The blankets that we use now are not waterproof or drool proof. I would use this blanket everywhere!

  27. Teresa D says

    This would be great for my 4 month old son. Especially as a stroller blanket with our rainy BC weather!

  28. says

    Number 100! Also, if I were to win this I’d probably loan it to a friend this Winter as she’ll have a baby by then and has much colder weather . But I’d demand it back for when my 2nd child is born! tee hee.

  30. Krystal says

    i would use mine for both my children, and It would really come in handy for our cross country move this summer while changing diapers at rest stations! – Krystal (kryssi01@msn.com)

    This little blanket would be for my little niece and it would most likely be used for her stroller to cover her up when she’s out in the ‘cool’ spring weather! :)
