i play., Inc. Winter Accessories and green sprouts Organic Velour Blankie Animal {Review & Giveaway}

i play. logo
As fall turns into winter here in the Midwest, it always makes me think of two things.

One, I don't like winter.

Two, I'm thankful for durable, high quality gear that I can count on to keep my kids warm and comfortable throughout all of the cold days that we endure.

Fortunately for Little Sister B, I only have to reach into her closet to pull out her Waterproof Insulated Snow Bib from our i play., Inc. review last February. After all, these incredible snow bibs kept every snowflake off of her last winter day after day (and barely even look worn now), so I have no doubt that they will provide the same stellar performance this year.

Although this year will be even better thanks to the addition of our new favorite winter accessories: the Fleece Earwarmer Cap, Fleece Mittens and Mitten Clips from i play. as well as the adorable Organic Velour Blankie Animal from green sprouts.

i play review

Available in Navy or Pink combinations, these Cap, Mittens and Clips are available for infants through toddlers to keep their heads and hands toasty all winter long. 

I love that the fleece-covered flaps of the hat completely protect little ears and the inclusion of the Velcro closure under the chin ensures that it won't blow off in the wind or let cold air in the sides. As opposed to other, lightweight, flimsy hats that we have owned, this one features multiple layers of fleece that provide warmth as well as a cute style.

Even better, it is reversible! If there is a chance that Little Sister B ever gets tired of the Pink Floral, we can easily flip the whole thing over to show the solid pink microfleece lining instead.

As much as we have loved this hat, the arrival of the i play. Fleece Mittens and Mitten Clips has been an exciting occurrence that has been thrilling Little Sister B (and me) every day since.

These warm fleece mittens (also available for infants through toddlers) feature an elastic wrist opening with a Velcro wrist closure. The combination makes them easy for Little Sister B to put on and off by herself, while also providing a way to stay tightly closed to keep out any cold or snow.

Add in the overall thickness of the bright pink fleece and the non-skid palm patches for added protection, and it's no wonder that these are my daughter's favorite mittens!

However, as well as keeping her hands safe and warm, I love that these mittens also provide me with less worry over loss due to the convenient Mitten Clips!

Gone are the days of my youth when I had a piece of string running up and down my sleeves to tie my mittens on, as these clips are a quick, convenient, stylish alternative.

Simply attach one end to the mitten and one end to the end of a coat sleeve (they even have safety clips to help prevent pinched fingers), and you won't miss having to say, Where are your mittens?, What happened to your mittens? and Why do you only have ONE mitten? over and over again.

winter accessories

With a retail price of $13 for the Fleece Earwarmer Cap, $9 for the Fleece Mittens and $5.50 for the Mitten Clips, the combination of all three has provided the perfect way for Little Sister B to stay bundled up and happy all winter long.

Speaking of happy, we're always on the lookout for great products that will make wonderful, joy-providing gifts for the new babies of our friends, so we couldn't be more excited about being able to soon gift the Cornflower Lion Organic Velour Blankie Animal from green sprouts.

Available in Rose Bunny, Cornflower Lion or Sage Panda designs, this plush blankie doll is just right for small hands to grab and hold. Created from an organic cotton/poly velour and lightly filled with cotton, this cute animal not only provides babies with a soft pal, but parents don't have to to worry about it being unsafe if it goes into their little one's mouth.

Retailing for $15, all of this cuteness and plush softness is making me want to keep Cornflower Lion for myself!
