Yet another Twitter luck I have when I stumbled upon this tweet message by Slugs & Snails looking for bloggers to review their products and after telling me they are OK at working with international bloggers, I immediately got down to choosing one of their designs and waited patiently for it to arrive to test it out on Ben! So here goes my review:
Description from the product page:
"Slugs & Snails tights are more than just tights. Our designs (unlike girl’s tights) don’t stop at the knee, which means that they can be worn with or without trousers. Each pair comes with our unique Slugs & Snails© leaf logo and anti-slip soles to give grip to busy little feet.
* No more lost or odd socks.
* Warm legs and snugly toes.
* Soft breathable combed cotton.
* Flexible yarn allowing room for nappies and chubby legs
* Soft non-slip text on the soles, ideal for wooden or ceramic floors.
* Funky designs loved by little ones.
* Beautiful packaging ideal for gifts and baby showers.
All our tights are 80% Cotton (17% Polyamide, 3% Elastane – the stretchy thingies) and made by our lovely manufacturers in Turkey. No Slugs or Snails are harmed in the making of our products."
This product arrived in 2 weeks time somewhere in the middle of April and it took me about 1 month before I can get down to reviewing it on my 3 year old. The reason in the delay is I waited until our recent family trip before I can try it out on Benjamin.
At home, our air conditioning unit is set to 24°C and Ben even kicks away his blanket though he's just wearing his diapers at night. Hence, the 1 month long wait until we have to stay in the hotel (air conditioning unit set low and unless we turned it off, we have no choice but to brave the cold temperature hahaha...) So anyway, back to the review...
The tights came in a neat package with a little transparent window for you to peek into the designs. It is folded nicely and you can read about their 3 Fs philosophy at the back of the box.
I requested for the "Out of this World" design with the biggest size they have which is 2-3 years old since Ben is 38 months old now. I love the anti-slip soles which actually reads the brand name and the tights size. The sewing is nicely done and I really love the funky design and the vibrant colors!
Btw, Slugs & Snails are a great potty training handbag/nappy bag accessory too as they take up no space and are super handy to keep tucked away in case of any little accidents because you have a pair of trousers and socks ready to wear with no fuss! Cool feature!
Pictures below shows my boy in the cute tights! He slips into it easily and was climbing and jumping around the moment he got it on. There was absolutely no need of me to be readjusting or pulling the tights up for him (like I normally do when he wears long pants or socks)
I love the fact that the tights kept him warm and yet did not restrict his movements at all, and at the same time making him look as cute as ever with its funky designs!
And honestly speaking, I think my girl would look cute wearing one of this too!
