HALO Review & Giveaway...
I am really excited about two new products from HALO, the Early Walker SleepSack Wearable Blanket and the Big Kid's SleepSack Wearable Blanket. These two new products allow you to increase the time your child can have the benefit of the wearable blankets that were so great in the early days.
The Early Walker SleepSack is genius. As I recently mentioned, Baby R is an early walker at 10 months old. Having Baby R popped into the original HALO sleep sack does not thrill here these days. She struggles to get up and then hops up and down as if she is in a potato sack race. Pretty cute but not something that makes her terribly happy! The Early Walker eliminates this issue completely. It has two banded foot holes for those tiny feet to pop out. Problem solved! Your little cruiser has the benefit of the wearable blanket while still having those "ready to move" feet exposed. You can either slip your baby's feet inside the banded holes to keep them warm at night or slip on a pair of cozy socks to keep those toes warm. The Early Walker SleepSack comes in micro-fleece and 100% polyester for warmer climates and is available in a wide range of colors and prints. Both materials are machine washable and dryable.
The Big Kids SleepSack extends the sleep sack idea even further. It is in the same design of the above mentioned Early Walker SleepSack but in larger sizes (up to 4/5T). I don't know about you but my nearly 4 year olds are forever kicking off their blankets. I really worry about them staying warm enough on cold winter nights. When I opened up the package containing the Bid Kid's SleepSack A&W were intrigued by it and they could not wait to try it on. The boys really loved it and kept saying how cozy it was. I actually had to convince them that the 90 degree heat was not the night to wear a fleece wearable blanket to bed! Right this moment "W" is sound asleep in Big Kid's SleepSack and Alex has been promised the chance to wear it tomorrow. They have to take turns until I can order another one and get it here! I think it goes without saying that A&W give this a big thumbs up! Like the Early Walker Sleep Sack, the Big Kid's SleepSack comes in both micro-fleece and 100% polyester and in a great variety of colors. A&W are now sharing the blue fleece dinosaur and I think we will add the red car design next.
HALO continues to make products that make bedtime safe and comfortable for infants and children. I love these wearable blankets and would recommend them for any stage. I also appreciate that a percentage of HALO Innovations' profits are donated to First Candle/SIDS Alliance and the Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths to fund ongoing SIDS research, education and family support. I really love to support a company who not only provides a great product but also gives back to the community in such a meaningful way.
