Pickle Peas - Dribble Duds for Little Hipsters Review & Giveaway


I love when I come across a product and think, "Yes! This is so awesome! Now why didn't I think of that!". Having this thought usually means that another Mom created it and it is truly functional, smart and a much needed and loved product.

This was exactly my thought when I came across Pickle Peas in my Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine. How clever, how cute and how unique! I was lucky to have the chance to "meet" Shannon the owner and inventor of Pickle Peas through email and have the chance to review her fun and purposeful Pickle Peas outfits!

About Pickle Peas
Pickle Peas was thought up and brought to life by Shannon, a mom of three - born within 3 years! Yikes! Each time they would make it through a rough baby phase, the next baby would just be entering the same phase. It seemed never ending, especially when it came to drooling.

She was tired of these top frustrations when it came to drooling...

• constant soaked clothing,
• covering very cute outfits up with a bib that doesn’t remotely match,
• not using a bib and dealing with constant outfit changes, or
• clothes that get stinky from being constantly wet with drool,
• the rash that is caused from skin being wet all the time.

and figured there had to be a better way to dress a drooling baby. One of her favorite brands, Mini Boden introduced her to appliqués. This got her thinking, what if bibs could be in the shapes of things. They would be waterproof and coordinate with the clothes baby was wearing. If one got wet, you could easily change it for another bib without changing the entire outfit.

These ideas led her on a year long journey and Pickle Peas was born! (Pickle Peas is a nickname for her three babies by the way :)
Pickle Peas Review
I was so excited to have the opportunity to review Pickle Peas outfits. Little Brother is a drooler! And both boys were big time spitters as babies. I so wish these were around a little sooner. It would have made changing outfits after every feeding much easier and much more fun!

For my review I received the Boys Layered T in Steeple, the Boys Long Sleeve Solid T in Storm, Lounge Pants in Steeple and three snap on bibs. Monkey, Pirate Ship and Robot.

The first thing I noticed when I received them was the attention to detail. All the fabric is 100% organic cotton and is so soft. The colors are bright, yet soft to look at and cute and modern. Each separate piece matches and can be swapped out to go together. This includes the appliqué bibs. The stitching and details on the appliques are amazing and oh so cute! And one of my favorite parts is that these clothes are comfortable! Made for babies to easily move and play in. Cute and functional...perfect!
Each appliquéd bib is fun, cute and silly all at the same time. They are also made out of 100% organic cotton, have a waterproof layer sewn inside and snaps to each Pickle Peas outfits. The bibs are generous in size and catch nearly all of the drool without looking too big or silly on the shirts. Only a few drops of drool actually made it on Little Brother's shirt around the bib. And as you know with a moving, on the go toddler or baby that is to be expected.
When I pulled off Little Brother's wet bib, the underneath was completely dry. I easily snapped on a new bib and he was off. They snap on and off super easy so there is no down time in play.

Pickle Peas is the perfect solution for on the go families. How easy to change the bib rather than the whole outfit in the car, airport, train, etc. Baby is dry and happy, and Mom is happy too!

Little Brother at 19 months loved to pick out which bib he wanted. His favorite was the monkey. So these also make a good jump start at letting your little one pick out what outfit they would like to wear. I even tried to leave the bib off for awhile but Little Brother would not wear the shirt without the monkey. These are just really fun and really clever. You will want one of each bib just so you can change out the outfit and mix and match them all.

The bibs are one size and will fit every separate piece of clothing sized from 3-6 months up to 18-24 months. This is great because although you will have to buy larger clothing, you can reuse the bibs over and over until they outgrow their drooling and sadly Pickles Peas too.

Pickle Peas not only makes stylish comfortable clothing but they are very focused on the safety for your children and the environment too. They only use 100% organic cotton, low impact dyes, nickel free naps and all their shipping materials are made from recycled material and are also recyclable.
