Made In Canada: House of Koopslie Hats Review & Giveaway
Monday, 22 July 2013
When having a baby, there's a million things you didn't even know existed that you suddenly need. From baby monitors, to the right bottles, to swaddle blankets, gliders, and beyond! It's hard to sort through the difference between the essentials that are must-haves, the ones that are nice to have, and the ones you'll buy thinking you need them, but never end up using. Hats were one of the things I thought fell into the last category.
So when my little guy was born, I only had one hat. And I only had the one because it was a gift. I am sure many of you experienced mamas are laughing at me right now. Well, you're right to. Of course, I ended up going out and investing in quite a few hats. Since he was a fall baby, he ended up wearing hats more often than not all fall and throughout winter.
Whether your baby has a head of hair or not, baby hats are a must-have essential. Because babies lose heat from their head, it's a good idea to always have a hat at hand to slip onto your baby's head should the weather take a turn for the worse. It's all the better when you find one that's not only functional, but fashionable, too. House of Koopslie offers headbands and hats that certainly are! Their variety of styles are bold and stunning, featuring designs cute enough to be worn by a newborn, and "cool" enough to be worn by your not-so-little one! These adorable hats are proudly produced in North America, where they are made in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
I received the t-rex hat and the motorcycle hat. I love the soft texture (seriously, do they make any pillowcases out of this stuff?), and I can't help but drool over the many cute designs offered by House of Koopslie. These hats are silky smooth, as they are made using a bamboo blend that is over 60% bamboo! They are light and breathable, so they can be worn even on warmer days. The bold colors on the hats initially worried me, as I thought I may have a hard time finding clothes in my son's wardrobe to match. But that turned out not to be a problem! The hats really made his outfits complete! Even though I only have two hats, he hasn't worn a single outfit where one of these hats simply didn't match.
What's even better? You can get them in a size anywhere from newborn to adult! Papa and the youngster can have matching hats for a regular outing, or for a family photo shoot! From dinosaurs to motorcycles for the boys, and sweet hats with a fabric flower to zebras for the girls, House of Koopslie's range of variety means everyone is sure to find something (or multiple things, in my case!) that they adore. In fact, my son's t-rex hat told me its lonely (wink, wink!), so the stegosaurus hat is next on my wishlist!
As if you don't have enough to love about House of Koopslie, here's yet another reason! They are eco-friendly! Not only is it better to buy products made in North America because that decreases the footprint of the production of the product, but because House of Koopslie's products has a large amount of bamboo in them. Bamboo is a renewable resource as it grows fast, and therefore replenishes quickly.
