i play and Green Sprouts November Review and Giveaway

I had the opportunity to review a couple of amazing products this month.

i play is a company that is focused on protecting children and the earth. Their products are high quality, PVC and BPA free, and many are organic, UPF 50+ and made of petroleum-free materials.

For more information about i play and their eco-friendly and child-friendly products, check out their about us page here.

I had the chance to review Green Sprouts Velour Blankie Animal:

This is a wonderful product, with a soft plush head and a plush, unstuffed blankie body. We've had similar products with all of our children, but it was a head on an actual blankie. The kids liked them, but Princesa absolutely LOVES this one. She loves that it's an actual stuffed animal, not a blanket with a head, but it's still snuggly like a blankie.

I love the fact that it's hypoallergenic, made with organic cotton and low-impact, azo-free dyes. And it's so soft and snuggly! I had originally planned to pass this on to a friend with a baby, but my tot adores it, carrying it around everywhere and even sleeping with it (and she never takes toys to bed!) This will definitely be used in our house for a long time.

I also got to try out the i play Fleece Vest:

I love this vest! It's incredibly well made, down to the minute details:

It's double stitched, has a collar liner, has a cloth tab to help pull the zipper, and has this protective cover at the neck to keep the zipper from scratching your little one's neck. It has roomy pockets and is quite warm.

It's also PVC free, hypoallergenic and free of harsh chemicals.

My little one wants to wear this all the time, and I'm having problems getting her to wear her coat now that it's raining! She only wants to wear the vest, never layering it. The only downside for me is that they run a bit small. I ordered a 3, figuring she could wear it this year and next (she's barely in a 2T for shirts), but it fits her very well this year. Keep that in mind when you order your own!

i play is nominated for two 2012 Red Tricycle Awards! They're nominated for their swimwear and for Greenest Gear. Check them out and go vote!
