Product Review - Baby grappling Baby gi

~ Posted on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 4:56 PM ~

When I saw the review pitch for this product, I could just imagine how cute my girl would look like wearing it! I mean, of course, I always called her a ninja (because of all her toddler stunts here and there) but yeah, I do secretly want to see her wearing a karate/kungfu clothing! So here goes my feedback:

Description from the product page:
"The Baby Gi is a miniature martial arts uniform, designed as comfortable daywear for babies and toddlers, matching parents or siblings who practise martial arts. The Baby Gi is made of very soft 100% cotton."

Sorry for the picture quality... I took it in my room at night under yellow night, but trust me, the clothes looks much more awesome than the pictures I took! I was given the red colored clothing of size 86 for my review, I'm okay with the red color, as my kiddos are a fan of red color though I wished I could choose the sizes. Turns out my girl is too small for the pants (still a bit too loose when she wears it) and my 4 years old insisted on wearing the kungfu jacket which is a teenie weenie bit tight for him but still wearable.

The cute clothing comes with the jacket, a belt and a pants.The jackets have a closed front so I have to make sure my boy wears it over his head. As for the belts, the knot is pre-sewn onto the belt and the belts are secured with velcro on the side, making it easily adjustable and out of reach of little hands but since it is my 4 years old boy wearing the clothes, there's only a couple of inches left to spare for him to tug at hahahaha... Pants wise, the leggings comes with elastic waist and it is definitely too short for my 4 years old boy to wear together with the jacket so you will end up seeing BOTH my kiddos trying out this clothing for this review.

Pictures taken below of my 2 kiddos wearing the clothings at different occassions. I love the comfortable cotton material used for this clothing and I do think my kiddos look cute in the clothing!

One of the reasons why I wanted to add this story app into our collections is because my 4 years old boy is at the age of making friends now (he is still a very shy boy but we can see he's making some effort nowadays) and I thought this is a good opportunity to let him know what is good with having friends around.

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

Just My Friend and Me

* I took this opportunity in this story app to teach my boy that when we are done playing toys with our friends, we do have to be responsible in cleaning up the toys and putting everything back into their own place.

* I also explained to my boy that friends are good as we can share our toys and happiness with others and I can actually see my boy sharing more often nowadays with his baby sister so I am looking forward to seeing him applying these sharing traits with other children around him.

Upcoming Product Reviews for Skechers, AGAIN!

~ Posted on Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at 1:22 PM ~

Just a few weeks back, I was mourning to myself, thinking... sigh.. how fast time goes by, my 1.5 years old girl is not able to wear her cute Cammie Cow Shoes anymore and there's just a tiny pinky finger width left in my 4 years old boy's Terminal Radian Z Strap Shoes. The thought of needing to replace my kiddos' shoes (especially my boy because he really really loves his shoes!) is quite daunting and worrying!

And then God works mysteriously and wonderfully! I received an email from Skechers asking whether my family and I are interested to review Skechers' shoes again, this time under the Casual Lifestyle range of shoes. Oh my, oh my, oh my! I was jumping with joy after reading that email! Really excited and superbly happy that God answers my prayers!

So yes, few days after that, my family and I were back at Skechers outlet in One Utama shopping mall, choosing our brand new shoes!

This is the prelude part of my reviews (I'm starting off with our shopping experience there, followed by each of the shoes we received for our reviews). The outlet in 1 Utama shopping mall is easy to locate (located at LG330A / Lower Ground Floor in the new wing) and you can't miss the shop with its big bright signage. You can look for their other outlets from this website: http://skechers.com.my/store-locator.php

The shoes as always are displayed neatly and very easy to see. This time we are to review the Casual Lifestyle range, so after a brief explanation by one of the staff in the outlet, we proceeded to try out our respective shoes.

As for my feedback on our customer service experience, I am happy to share that the staff are helpful and knowledgeable in their products. I also like that the staff hurried over to get the shoes in the sizes we wanted to try and waited for us patiently while we try and stroll around to test the shoes. Despite the high amount of customers in the outlet during that time, the staffs are still able to cater to our questions and requests for size changes. 

I like the cute little toy dispenser machine right in the middle of the children's shoes display as I think it is a creative gesture by the company to entertain the little ones! It was still around since the last time we reviewed our shoes last year. I'm actually glad to see it still being a part of the outlet!

While we waited for our turns at the cashier counter (it was quite a busy day when we were there, lots of customers!), another staff promptly passed 3 small tokens (special for the dispenser machine) to my hubby who then guided our 4 years old Benjamin to slot in the token and drew out a capsule for himself and another for his baby sister, Alyson.

Both capsules contains erasers (one in the shape of school bag, another shaped as stapler). One nice gesture noted is our 8 years old nephew who tagged along with us also gets a token to draw out a capsule for himself.

My 1.5 years old Alyson sitting on the cashier counter admiring the colorful boxes for shoes that we have chosen for ourselves. The staff promptly processed our details and the shoes we selected and passed a copy of the shoes we got for my reference before we head home with our new found treasures!

Stay tuned for my review posts on each of the shoes we got for our review. And here's a sneak peak of the shoes we got!

Awesome right?!! Thank you Skechers again for your generosity and awesomeness! You guys totally rock!
