I feel like you either have a child who loves bathtime or they absolutely hate it. Thankfully, Baby Budget loves it. I’m pretty sure she would stay in there for hours if I let her. When it’s time to get out and dry off for the first few months I used a baby towel, which she very quickly outgrew because they are so tiny. Then switching to a normal towel I started to hunt for something better. It’s just a towel right? Wrong. I stumbled across Zoocchini Hooded Towels for babies and toddlers and could not be more excited to share my review with you.
Side Note: See the hand in the picture? That’s Baby Budget, she couldn’t wait for me to take pictures so she could hold her frog.
The towels are 100% cotton plush terry and are extremely soft. Even after a few washes, which is what normally makes towels hard and crunchy, it’s still soft enough that Baby Budget wraps herself in it like a blanket. The towels are hooded which not only helps to keep baby warm, but it also helps to dry their hair. They come in two sizes, baby which is recommended for ages 0+ and measures 30 x 30 inches. Then the kids size which is recommended for ages 2+ and measures 50 x 22 inches. Baby Budget is quite tall for her age and at 18 months the baby size is still quite large for her. It touches the ground when she is standing which is nice because then I can wrap her feet up in it to dry them off. This also means that if you buy one when your child is born they’ll be able to use it for 2+ years before you have to size up. The towels are not only functional, but cute as well. They come in different animals that are displayed on the hood in a 3D fashion and on the kids size on the “arm” part they feature the animals’
paws. The baby towels are $25.99 and the kids towels are $35.99. If you ever have the opportunity to visit a retailer to feel these before you buy them I absolutely recommend it. Plus, if you follow them on social media or join their mailing list they often have exclusive coupon codes for their fans.
If you’re looking to purchase this as a gift or even for your own family they also have matching bath mitts. They are much more soft and friendly looking than a giant washcloth for your little ones face and body. Plus they are made out of 100% cotton plush terry just like the towels. The ‘plush terry’ part of the cotton simply means that it is highly absorbent and still remains soft.
This wouldn’t be a fair review if I didn’t also talk about the company itself. I have long followed Zoocchini on their social media account but never really looked into the brand itself until I had a baby. If you visit their About Us page on their website you’ll find that they truly care about the products they make and that they make sure to meet or exceed industry standards. Something that stood out to me when reading about them was this quote,
“We build a positive message that everyone and everything is individually beautiful… and different!” -Zoocchini
This ties into their slogan , “Friends come in all shapes, sizes and colors. ZOOCCHINI… beautifully different!” Reading that speaks volumes to me because I try so hard to find responsible and positive brands to support. When purchasing products from them I now know that I can not only count on the quality of the product but also the brand itself. They also carry additional products besides the bath towels and mitt which include backpacks, underwear, training pants, blankets, rattles, bibs, diapers and sun hats! I’ve personally used their sun hats and swim diapers before and they are fantastic.
If you would like to learn more about Zoocchini or make a purchase you can find their website here, as well as all of their social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. I do warn you though that following their Instagram may make you purchase more than one towel after seeing all the fun the kids are having with them! It’s also a great way to see some of their other products showcased.
I did receive the hooded towel for free to review however the thoughts and opinions in this review are entirely my own.
