The Angry Birds Baby Collection from SwaddleDesigns : Review & Giveaway! Ends 4/20


SwaddleDesigns seems to constantly be coming out with new products, and lots of fun themes too. In fact, this year they have many new prints, blankets and other products coming out! Recently they launched the Angry Birds Baby collection too! I might be putting myself out there a bit by saying this, but I LOVE playing Angry Birds! What? You too? I knew it! :) So, put two of my favorite things together and you get this new fabulous collection from SwaddleDesigns! I'm a HUGE fan of SwaddleDesigns' Ultimate Receiving Blankets, so I'm thrilled to work on this review and check out their new line! 

About SwaddleDesigns: SwaddleDesigns was founded by Lynette Damir, RN, Designer and Mom in 2002, and SwaddleDesigns was the first company to introduce the large square swaddling blanket to the US and many countries around the world.  SwaddleDesigns is known for their premium quality fabric, fabulous colors and prints, decorative edge, and the innovative 123 Swaddle® instructional label that helps new parents master the art of swaddling. SwaddleDesigns blankets come in a variety of weights and are perfect for many uses such as a privacy throw for breastfeeding moms, a tummy time play mat, a cover over the stroller as well as swaddling.  

About Angry Birds: Angry Birds by Rovio is a phenomenally popular game.  Angry Birds is the fastest growing brand in the world with over 600 million downloads.  Boys, girls, men, women, grandmas and grandpas – all love playing Angry Birds.  The game is entertaining to people of all ages, genders and geographies. The game is entertaining to people of all ages, genders and geographies, and is fun for family members to play together during snuggle time. Angry Birds have found happiness with SwaddleDesigns baby products! We are honored that Rovio chose SwaddleDesigns to manufacture Angry Birds Baby items based on our high quality products.

The Angry Birds Baby Collection features bodysuits, Ultimate Receiving Blankets, Marquisette Swaddling Blankets, Swaddle Duos, Baby Lovies, Marquisette Baby Burpies, zzZipMe Sacks, plush toys and gift bundles. Wow, they went all out with this new collection! SwaddleDesigns sent me their Multi-Bird Marquisette Swaddling Blanket and the Short Sleeve Body Suit with the 3" red bird.

The Short Sleeved Body Suit is very soft and 100% combed cotton knit. It features red trim and the classic red bird from Angry Birds. The applique is very soft and thin, meaning I don't anticipate it getting hard and cracking. This body suit is great for a warmer day, or paired with some leg warmers or pants on a cooler day. Sometimes it's nice to just buy a "just for fun" piece of clothing because it makes you laugh or has a story behind it. This is certainly one of those pieces that will tickle the sense of humor of any expectant parent that loves Angry Birds. Can you imagine opening any of these products at a baby shower? Oh my gosh, it would be a hoot!

The Marquisette Swaddling Blanket is much larger than most swaddling blankets and is square in shape too. It measures 46" x 46". It's much easier to swaddle a baby when the blanket is nice and big! The very lightweight, open-weave cotton material of the Marquisette Swaddle Blankets is similar to gauze, and is much better for warmer weather than their classic Ultimate Receiving Blankets (which a thicker cotton flannel and GREAT for colder weather!). It's perfect for summer, and the more breathable choice for a cool room caused by the fan or AC on those hot days. I also love how this blanket washes. It seems to get softer with each wash, and becomes a cozy companion for toddlers too! It's not just for swaddling, and can be used as a sun shield over a car seat, a light blanket for snuggling, a playmat for tummy time and can even be used as an impromptu nursing cover.
Be sure to check out more information from SwaddleDesigns on how to swaddle your baby, along with information regarding sleeping environments and the benefits of swaddling. It's important to keep yourself informed on the safety measures you should take to keep you baby safe, comfortable, and swaddled correctly. Of course all SwaddleDesigns blankets have an awesome sewn-in 123 Swaddle® instructional label on how to swaddle your baby in case you just need a refresher on what to do! I know for me the label was a great help in those early days when I was sleep-deprived and days were hazy with a newborn.
