What’s a Woobee?! Exact words that my husband uttered two years ago when I told him I wanted to get a Woobee for the Small Fry. Well, for those of you who’s asking the same question right now, it’s a blanket that has a water-resistant material on one side and soft material on the other, so it’s ideal for draping over the infant seat, stroller or baby carrier on a
typical Seattle rainy day. It has grosgrain ribbon ties on each side to keep it in place.
I think he balked a little at the price (we paid $70 in 2009) but this item is one of those “you get what you pay for” items that is so versatile and useful for years. We used it a lot when Jordan was little since he was born in the fall, it was always gloomy, cold & rainy in Seattle. This blanket is really water resistant and cozy on one side which makes it an indispensable piece of baby gear.
During the summer time, we use the Woobee as a play mat or a ground cover, since it keeps little tushies clean and dry even when the ground is damp. We have even used it as a changing mat at the park several times.
Last weekend, we took the boys to a pumpkin patch & of course, I had to use the Woobee with the baby carrier to protect my little J from the cold wind.
I realized that in an age when so many products don’t live up to their advertising claims, Woobee does everything they say it does so I contacted Rain or Shine Kids to tell them how much I LOVE their Woobee blanket.
Now, they are going to send one of my lucky readers a plush blanket of her/his choice!
