I love discovering independent online stores, so when the lovely folk at Bambini & Me emailed to say “hi!”, and offered H-Bear some items from their beautiful range, I had so much fun perusing their wonderful shop.
Bambini & Me was created by owner Melissa during a glorious Christmas holiday in Thailand with family. Whilst looking around a colourful, local market, Melissa came across bamboo baby clothes and fell in love! Her quest then began to bring bamboo clothing into the lives of others.
It took me a while to choose for H-Bear as a lot of the Bambini & Me range only goes up to size 6-12 months – which is a shame as there are some gloriously beautiful prints! However, as soon as I came across these divine whale moccasins, I knew H-Bear would love them; he’s a little bit shoe-obsessed (he takes after his Mama!).
The shoes are size 12-18 months, and a perfect fit for H-Bear’s big feet! They are made entirely from leather, and are super soft to touch.
The appliquéd whale is such a gorgeous, fun design – and goes with lots of H-Bear’s clothes!
H-Bear loves them so much that, when I took them off after our mini adventure yesterday, he crawled after me, took them from the hallway and tried to put them back on his feet! A positive testimony if ever there was one! The shoes cost £14.99, and would make the perfect first birthday gift.
We were also sent this beautiful Bamboo Snuggle elephant blanket for H-Bear, which has been a huge hit!
The blanket is the ideal size for the pram; measuring at 100cm x 76cm.
It’s super snuggly: the elephant print side, which is a lovely gender-neutral light brown, is made of bamboo and cotton.
The base of the blanket is made from a beautiful soft, fluffy, almost mink-like fabric. H-Bear is besotted with it, and has enjoyed snuggling up on the sofa in it… it’s also great for Hide & Seek!
The gorgeous elephant snuggly blanket costs £28, and would once again make a wonderful gift.
All of the above items, plus more fabulous baby goodies, can be found on the Bambini & Me website.
