With winter on the way the lovely people at cool maternity and baby shop JoJo Maman Bebe sent us one of their signature fleeces to try out. This came as a bit of a godsend as the buggy cosy toes we have all seem to slide down and drag on the floor. The JoJo Maman Bebe Cosy toes is made from their good quality recycled Polarfleece fleece and retails for £39. This is really fab stuff, it washes and washes. I know this because Toddler Boy has a pair of trousers made from this fabric, inherited from his friend which are as good as new.
The cosy toes has been really well designed so that it can be easily attached to most buggies. I have tried it on all three of my different buggies and it fits them all thanks to clever ties and a plethora of holes for straps. It has zips around the edges which allow you to get your child in and out easily. However, the most important factor for me, is that it is not so long that it drags along the floor, yet it fitted my toddler with plenty of spare room.
I have to admit, that I think a nice cosy toes really can make all the difference to your buggy in the winter. It instantly smartens it up. The JoJo Maman Bebe Cosy toes come in a chose of four different fabric designs. These match their latest clothing ranges. Unfortunately, I chose the one fabric which I thought would be the most neutral. It, er, doesn’t actually go with any of my buggies. But that was my silly fault. I do quite like the colour, however, I think I should have gone for one of the other options!
So in summary, this is a great cosy toes, it will last the length of your buggy years and I would suggest that to make it really cost effective, it would be worth investing in one for your baby’s first winter. Its nice to have something a bit unusual and I would definitely suggest ditching the cosy toes that came with your buggy (if you got one thrown in) in favour of one of these!
