I have to admit I am a bit of a sucker for a good bib and Zippy do a good bib! I remember using Zippy Bibs when Finlay was a baby and was always impressed by their quality. So I was very excited when Nicole, the founder got in contact and asked if I wanted to review some bibs. I didn’t hesitate. They arrived last week and Emmie has spent the last few days drolling them through their paces.
Zippy was founded 5 years ago by Nicole, a mother herself who wanted to make useful baby products for mums designed by mums. Today Zippy sell a number of different types of bibs, clothing, muslins, swaddles and blankets. Zippy products are in fact so useful and well designed, they have won a number of awards!
Zippy bibs come in a huge variety of designs for boys, girls and unisex. The bibs are made from 100% pure cotton and premium quality fleece making them super soft and highly absorbent. This ensures that babies are kept drier for longer. I couldn’t wait to put them to the test!
I believe bibs are one of the main essentials that any parent needs for their baby. These little humans just love to leak whether it is milk, sick or dribble. Sometimes though, you need more than just a bib. you know? When you have a gorgeous outfit? Then you cover it with a drab looking bib? Well, Zippy bibs are the answer. These bibs are a very functional, stylish accessory!
Nicole let me choose which design I wanted and I was spoilt for choice. I really found it hard to narrow down to just one set as they were all super cute. In the end, though I decided on a pack that had two bold designs and two pastels. I couldn’t wait for them to arrive, especially as Emmie has started drooling like Niagra Falls.
The bibs were delivered in a cute little box and were neatly rolled into place. Before I even opened them, I was thinking I would be really impressed to receive these as a baby shower gift.
On opening, you could tell how high quality these bibs are. They felt thick and soft, I had no worries over how comfortable these would be against Emmie’s neck. I’m super excited at this point! The back of the bib is really soft and thick and is what makes them highly absorbent. The colours were gorgeous. I especially loved how bright the bold bibs were and was impressed how well the prints had been transferred on. I inspected the poppers and seams, they were all faultless and really well made. I just hoped these Zippy bibs would stand up to the test!
The bibs have two press studs on them, which means they grow with your baby. The neckline is slightly raunched and stretchy. This means the bib fits snugly. I popped the first bib on Emmie and fastened it the smallest I could (Emmie is a bit wee). It fit really well, not too tight, but close enough to catch that dribble and anything else that came up! Cue the dribble, no sooner than I popped it on, the dribbling began. Usually, Emmie soaks through a bib quite quickly. I kept checking, but her clothes remained dry (I hadn’t doubted they would), even though the bib was quite damp. They had passed the dribble test with flying colours. We continued using them over the next few days and I wasn’t once disappointed, nor was Emmie once damp. They also looked fabulous against her clothes, there’s nothing drab about these bibs!
One extra thing that I was keen to test, was how the bibs performed after a wash. I think a definite sign of quality is an item that performs just as well after a spin in the machine. The bibs went in on a normal wash and I hung them up to air dry. I was actually surprised, expecting at least the feel to be slightly different. However, they felt like new, still really thick and soft, disappointed just as bright and no less absorbent! I really am impressed with the Zippy bibs.
I would definitely recommend these bibs to anyone, you will not be disappointed. They are bright, cute, fun, thick and most of all functional.
Zippy bibs start off at a bargain price of £3.50 for a single bib.
