KIDORABLE- Review and Giveaway!



I love to have fun and cute things for my kids, for a few reasons... the biggest one being I like to know which item is my daughters or sons! Being in school, every kid in the class seems to have the same colored umbrella, or hat and gloves, so if my kid loses something and I have to dig thru the Lost and Found pile, I don't always know that I'm getting the same one my kid was wearing before they lost it!

At Kidorable, they offer so many cute and different choices! From umbrellas and rain gear, to winter hats, gloves and scarfs, each item will definetly stand out!



We choose the Fairy Umbrella, my daughter is loving Fairys right now, so she is in LOVE with it! Not only is the umbrella very well made, but it is a good sided one too. Last time I purchased a child umbrella, she barely stayed dry. Kidorable offers many styles for boys and girls, such as a Butterfly, Ladybug, or Mermaid for the girls, to a Dinosaur, Fireman or Frog for the boys! To complete your child for the rainy season, Kidorable also offers Raincoats and boots in the same styles, so your child can be matching from head to toe! Living in Illinois, I never know if we're going to wear our winter apparel, or have to break out the rain gear : ) The week we were sent out products, we were able to use BOTH in the same week, within days, lol! Gotta love Illinois!

We were also sent the Hearts knit hat and scarf for review, I loved that with the different colors, she can wear her replacement coat when the other is being washed. The hat and scarf match perfectly, and again, if she does misplace them, I can at least be sure that they will be easy to find!

The past few winters I have gone cheap and bought the kids $1-2 hats and gloves, because they were losing them or the hats were falling apart, so I felt like I was shelling out way too much money on the same thing over and over again. I have no doubt in my mind that this hat and scarf will stand up to her playing and running around, and that they will keep her warm while waiting to get into school : ) I only wish I would have found Kidorable earlier, for both Raingear AND winter items because they are well worth the money!



A bit about Kidorable-
In 1997, Kidorable sprung from the minds, hearts and efficiency apartment of Liping and Jonathan Domsky. They proclaimed, "The world needs someone to create children's apparel and accessories that are both functional and fun. We can do that."


And so Kidorable was conceived. Starting with lions and cats and bears, oh my, manifested as umbrellas and hangers, Kidorable generated enough sales during its first year to break even and plant fruitful Kidorable seeds throughout the land. The following year sales grew ten fold. Every year since, give or take, a new style and/or product line debuted. And every year, the world joyfully embraced more Kidorable delights, give or take, than the year before.
Today Kidorable is a striking presence, not just in stores, but across the vast landscape of the children's apparel and accessories industry. By encouraging personal and professional growth in the service of imagination and smiles, Kidorable's own growth projections continue to soar.

Kidorable products can be ordered online, but they are also in stores thru out the United States. I was at the mall today and saw the Kidorable umbrellas in a Stride Rite store, so be on the lookout! If you are looking for a creative and fun gift, they also offer gift certificates!

Here's the best part- One lucky reader is going to win an umbrella of their choice! All you have to do is head over to Kidorable and let me know your favorite item! ( Mandatory Entry!)
