Parent Hacks Store Featured Find: Woobee water resistant blanket/cover/soft thingie
In lieu of confetti, fireworks and a grand parade down Main Street, I decided the best way to celebrate the grand opening of the Parent Hacks Store is to shower you, my dear Parenthackers, with gifts!
Today's Featured Find is the all-weather Woobee...cuddly thing? Stroller cozi-fier? Nursing cover? It can be so many things, it seems a shame to call it a blanket. This...blanket...is flexible water-resistant material on one side and super-soft furry/cozy material on the other, so it's ideal for draping over the stroller on a damp day (grosgrain ribbon ties keep it in place). Or, you can wrap it around your front-carrier-filled-with-baby. Or use it as a dry and cozy nursing shelter. Or sit on it in the damp grass. Or use it as a makeshift changing pad. Then wash and dry and it's good as new.
If it weren't so beautifully-produced and useful, I'd balk at the price ($70, although some versions are on sale on the company's site). But this item is one of those "you get what you pay for" things that is SO versatile and useful (and will be for years), and will erase SO many potential headaches, that I wholeheartedly recommend it. I realize it's out of many people's price ranges (including mine, frankly) but it's good enough to warrant skipping or returning a few other useless baby items (like a diaper pail) to build up the funds.
The blanket I was sent for review is so lovable I'm tempted to name it Myrtle and make it my blankie. But my husband may object to my sleeping with something other than him, so instead I'm giving it away!
Win it! One randomly-chosen commenter will get my, uh, I mean this lovely Woobee blanket I'm fondling..um, I mean holding right now. (Perhaps now you don't want it given my questionable affection for the thing? Whatever.) I won't even make you answer a question -- just say hi in the comments, perhaps leave a nice little note. (Pardon the self-indulgence, but I could use a little cheering up from my Parenthacker peeps. It was a rough night last night.) I'll pick a lucky winner tomorrow at 5pm...good luck!
