BuyCostumes.Com – Gypsy Child Costume Product Review

Last year I made both my daughter's and my step-daughter's Halloween costumes. Let's just say that's not happening again! All of that time and money spent just to put together a couple of costumes was not worth driving to the store and buying a cheap costume. But, I really dislike most of the costumes in the stores. It's getting harder every year trying to find a child appropriate costume and the selection is usually pretty small. It's also getting harder to find a costume in the store that isn't going to fall apart before the hour or two of trick-or-treating is over.

I've been browsing for costumes this year online, and found one I adored on BuyCostumes.com. Because we live in Maine, it's very important for my kids to have costumes that they can put clothes under, or that are heavy enough to be worn on their own. Trust me. No one wants to lug kids around door to door in 32 degree weather with cranky freezing kids. Lucky for me, the price of the costume I had been eying fell within the price limit I was given for the review, and less than 3 days later I had the Gypsy Child Costume in my hands! When it arrived my daughter was playing in her yogurt I gave her for lunch, and even though I was really excited to put it on her to see if it fit, she wanted to take her good ol' sweet time, and then needed a shower immediately afterward.

"Add a little mystery to her life this Halloween in the Gypsy costume which includes a whimsical white ankle length peasant dress featuring large ruffles along the hem and a sequined apron with attached golden coins. A matching sequined scarf is also included in this trendy travelers look." ~ BuyCostumes.com

OK. Fast forward about an hour and I could FINALLY put the Gypsy Child costume on her. How stinkin' CUTE is she!?
I had requested a children's small in size, because while she's not quite 3 yet, she's MASSIVE for her age. (I mean that in the nicest way possible.) The Gypsy Child costume comes with a dress that has an attached sash on it, another sash with gold bangles on it that actually jingle when she moves, and a sequined head scarf. There are also accessories you can purchase separately to go with this particular costume including jewelry and shoes. The dress fit her PERFECTLY. It's just as long as I wanted it to be, and there's plenty of wiggle room. She may even be able to fit into this next year if she hasn't completely turned it into a dress up dress.

The dress and scarves are a mixture of cotton and polyester. This seems to me like it's a good quality costume. It's not super expensive (only $29.99), but definitely well worth it for such a beautiful and unique costume. My ONLY issue is that the shiny gold bangle things are all sewn on with ONE piece of thread. So, if one comes off, they all come off. I will have to go back through and make sure they're more secure since within 2 hours of my daughter wearing the costume, a few of the bangles fell off. BUT, I still love it! (Part of the reason they fell off is because when I tied the sash around her waste, the knot overlapped with the beads and pulled them.)

So, you know I love the costume, but you have got to hear my daughter's reaction. She REFUSED to take the costume off all day. I had to take it off for dinner to keep the white staying white, but she was not happy at all about it. Every time I asked if I could take it off she'd run in the opposite direction yelling, "NOOOOO!!!" She loves her new costume, and I'm sure she'll be wearing it every day after Halloween.

If you're in need of a quality, creative, unique costume for your kiddos, or yourself, make sure you check out BuyCostumes.com! You can also find them on Facebook , Twitter and YouTube. BuyCostumes.com offers FREE exchanges, and if you sign up for their emails you'll save 15% on your next order! BuyCostumes.com advertises as "The Web's Most Popular Costume Store" and I can certainly see why. Their selection is SO vast I couldn't even get through all of the children's costumes within an hour. Orders placed before 4pm also (usually) ship SAME DAY. And, many costumes are eligible for 2 day shipping. I'll definitely be coming back when I'm in need of more Halloween costumes.

Tommee Tippee – explora Truly Spill Proof Cups, Roll & Go Bibs, Easy Scoop Bowls & Easi Mat Product Review

If you're a regular follower, you know that I have two kids ages 1 and (almost) 3. Eating, messes, and sippy cups have been some of our biggest challenges. I think I saw somewhere yesterday that toddlers are comparable to tornadoes. We also have this thing we call the "yogurt apocalypse" in my house. This is when my daughter decides that the yogurt she begs to have for lunch belongs anywhere OTHER than the bowl, spoon, and her mouth.

Then the sippy cups. Oh the numerous sippy cups we've gone through trying to find the perfect ones. My son is still struggling to get the hang of them, but my daughter not only knows how to use them, but also knows how to make the biggest mess with each brand and style we've tried. We're talking unscrewed lids, bitten off soft mouth spouts, popped off lids, spitting the drink out, taking the straws out (don't even get me started on sippy cups with straws), and banging/throwing them down so hard that even the best sippy cups will spring a leak. FUN! (Not so much.) We use that knock-off Crystal Light drink mix, and the family can only seem to agree on the fruit punch flavor. Do you have ANY idea how difficult it is to get that nasty red dye out of sippy cups? It's almost impossible.

I reached out to Tommee Tippee because I really (REALLY) wanted to try their sippy cups, and because their products are BPA FREE. And they were so beyond generous and sent not only a set of sippy cups, but THREE sets of sippy cups, a set of four bowls, a place mat, and a set of two bibs. When I opened the box I think I heard the mommy guardian angels start singing. It was like entering mommy heaven!

I want to start with my FAVORITES from Tommee Tippee. My absolute favorite set of sippy cups they sent were the explora Truly Spill Proof Drink Cups. We were sent the "boy" set, so the colors were nice blues with robots and dinosaurs on them. The mouth pieces are solid, and shaped more like an actual cup than most sippy cups. And you know why I love these so much? They are virtually leak proof. I say virtually because, as expected, my daughter managed to throw them SO hard onto the floor that the lid came slightly off of the screw thread. Otherwise, I would say this particular set of Spill Proof Drink Cups are pretty much as impenetrable as an armored truck. These are also the easiest cups to clean.... ever.

Features:

  • 2 x 9floz/266ml Cups
  • Unique drinking spout for Kids on the Go
  • Guaranteed easy to drink and hold
  • Interchangeable lids with all Easiflow® cups specifically for baby's ages and stages
  • Truly non spill - no more leaks and gums, resists biting
  • Insulated base, keeps drinks cooler for longer
  • BPA Free

The next favorite thing Tommee Tippee sent were the explora Easy Scoop Feeding Bowls. These bowls have a great little handle on the side, and a big opening. My daughter LOVES these bowls. We're not quite at the point of my son using spoons yet, but my daughter has an easier time with her yogurt, and we've avoided a massive yogurt apocalypse since receiving the Easy Scoop Feeding Bowls. The Explora Easi Mat (pictured above) goes along with the bowls to help keep them placed on the tray or table. There's a little suction cup that the bowl sits on, and has a tiny pull that releases the bowl. The ONLY problem I had with the Easi Mat, is that while it does help keep the bowl on the feeding tray, it doesn't fully work for us. I'm not sure if it's because it just doesn't stick well to the tray, or if my kids are too rough/clever.

Features:

  • X4 bowls
  • Easy scoop triangular base
  • Use with Magic Mat
  • BPA free
  • Available in two different pack colours

We also received the explora Roll and Go Bibs, explora Truly Spill Proof Straw Cups, and explora Li'l Sipee Flip Top Cups. While these products were also great, they just weren't my favorite. Not because there was anything wrong with them, but because I try to avoid straw sippy cups in general, and my kids don't use bibs. (I really don't like to encourage messes.)

There are two things I really liked about the bibs. I loved how easy it is to clean them. Just wipe them down. If the kiddos ate something that stains like pasta sauce, you can easily use soap to clean them up and get rid of the stain. I also really liked the food catcher. Because the bibs are a thicker material the food catcher actually stays open and keeps the food from ending up in the laps of the kiddos. I do wish the material was a little thinner. It's so thick that it gets a little smushed when behind the high chair tray, and neither of my kids really care for the feeling of it around their necks. BUT they work, and they work well, and I think that's mostly what matters.
As far as straw sippy cups go, I really think the explora Truly Spill Proof Straw Cups and the explora Li'l Sipee Flip Top Cups are really pretty great. The straws don't leak like I've experienced in the past, and the pieces are easy to remove for cleaning. However, we haven't put these through the ringer like we have with the explora Truly Spill Proof Drink Cups. Because of personal preference, I'm going to have to stick with the Drink Cups, but if your kiddo prefers the straws I'd certainly suggest giving Tommee Tippee explora straw cups a try!

Make sure you find Tommee Tippee on Facebook and Twitter! I'm sure they'd love to hear from you, and if you're already a fan of their brand - stop by and tell them how great you think they are!
