Practical Pre-School 2010 Gold Award – UK

2010_practical_award Both the Bandana Wonder Bib and the Sleeved Wonder Bib won GOLD in the Childcare section of the Practical Pre-School Awards in 2010. These awards are based in the UK.

The Practical Pre-School Awards exist to identify and reward excellence in the fields of educational equipment, childcare and books and toys, suitable for early years and key stage 1 children, for use in professional childcare and educational settings.

The products are tested by professionals in the childcare sector and the children themselves.

What the testers said:

Bandana Wonder Bib
“This was a fantastic product; it had a nice snug fit the whole way round the neck to catch any dribble, unlike other bibs, but was not too tight. The material was very thick, so liquid never got through to clothes, which saved on washing. The bright colours and fashionable design make it appealing to children, so they do not mind wearing it.”

Sleeved Wonder Bib
“The Wonder Bib is far superior to other bibs, as you can use the same bib all day, rather than one at each meal time. The bib was lovely to touch, nice and soft, and much thicker than other bibs. Very absorbent material, water-resistant backing and cagoule material sleeves meant children stayed drier for longer. Stains were easily washed out and it can be tumble dried so is very easy to care for.”

 

Mom’s Best Award – USA

Here are some of the comments made by real Mums when they evaluated our Wonder Bib for the 2009 Mom’s Best Award:

What Mom’s are saying
“I really liked the colors and styles available, very cool idea.”
“A great bib. Kept baby dry underneath and was big enough to catch everything.”
“I love the snap closure instead of the more popular velcro!”
“I liked the adjustable neck, and the front was like a sham-wow cloth. It really absorbed!”

 

Disney Family.com – 21 Diaper Bag Essentials –  USA

family_com Disney Family.com is part of iParenting and have put together a list of the top 21 essential items every Mum needs in their Diaper bag.

Products were reviewed by an extensive panel of experts, childcare facilities and parents on numerous criteria such as quality, durability, and play value. Finally, each product underwent an executive review by iParenting staff.

Not one but two Mum 2 Mum products were selected for this list of 21 essential items.

Wonder Bib
Reviewer Raves: “The vibrant colors and super soft feel are very appealing, not to mention that the bib keeps my toddler’s shirt fairly dry when he spills his drink and soup. The two snaps to adjust the neckline are a nice feature, so I can use the bibs on my infant.”

Burp Cloth
Reviewer Raves: “The Mum2Mum Burp Cloths are made out of an extremely soft and durable material. The burp cloths are absorbent and hold up very well.”

Here is a review from one of the parents who tested our Standard Wonder Bib

Lydia awarded the Mum 2 Mum Wonder Bib top marks – 5/5
When this arrived looked soft, nice size and comfortable.   Fastenings are quick and easy to use and Tadhg could not remove it himself.   Quality is excellent.   Well finished, plush and extremely high quality.   A bib that is large enough to cope with milk reflux.   Excellent coverage during meals as this bib covered whole torso.   My son has reflux and usually soaks himself during milk feeds and with his water cup at meal times.   Not now as the Wonder Bib kept his clothing and skin dry.   I was sent 1 bib and this is fine to try out, but would really love to see them available in multipacks.   Fabric is lovely and soft and gentle against baby’s skin.   You could just pop the bib in with the normal wash and it is also tumble drier friendly.   The bandana bibs we use all the time, and the plastic bibs we use at meal times can not be tumble dried which is a real pain.   Value for money most definitely, as I currently spend £4 plus P&P on another brand and will be switching to the Wonder Bib.   Design, qaulity all brilliant.   Would recommend to others as does not irritate baby, can not be pulled off, protects clothes properly and easy to care for.   We love it and will definitely try the bandana variety.   Much easier at meal times as comfortable for my son to wear and good protection.  Lydia Niziblian – Baby Tadhg 10 Months
