Kidorable Review and Giveaway

I have to admit, before this year, my kids didn't have raincoats. We live in California, and frankly, we don't hang out outside in the rain much (and if we do, we use an umbrella). However, this summer Little Miss got it stuck in her head that she needed a raincoat.

I started a search for a raincoat that wasn't bright yellow, and thanks to the many blogs I read, I found Kidorable. Kidorable has a huge assortment of product lines, but I lusted after the raingear! I was contemplating trying to convince hubby that we really did need raincoats when I was offered the chance to review Kidorable's products! I jumped on it, and now both kids are ready for rain!

Kidorable was kind enough to send me two items (so the kids weren't fighting over them, which I'm eternally grateful for!)

We received the Fairy Rain Coat for Little Miss:


and the Pirate Umbrella for Bok Boy:


The kids are ecstatic, and (obviously) have been using them, even without rain!

Kidorable has done an excellent job with their products. They are extremely high quality and have tons of special touches:










The fairy raincoat comes with wings...














And a pocket for carrying fairy dust!
















The Pirate umbrella has a sword handle












And of course, a pirate flag!






And Little Miss' new favorite item, the fairy hanger! It's a gorgeous wooden hanger painted with a fairy scene (it came with the raincoat, but she mostly keeps scarves and stuff on it).


Kidorable is an adorable way to keep your kids warm this winter (and safe year-round), since they carry:
  • Umbrellas
  • Rain Coats
  • Rain Boots
  • Backpacks
  • Towels
  • Sun Hats
  • Embroidered T-Shirts
  • Knit Hats
  • Scarves
  • Knit Gloves
  • Hanger Sets
  • Bookends
Now, because Kidorable is so amazing, they've offered one reader their choice of umbrella!
