Things I LOVE Thursday...Bumkins Apron Review & Giveaway!! CLOSED

All 6 of my kids LOVE to cook. Recently I was given the opportunity to review Bumkins Waterproof Aprons. Bumkins is a wonderful company that has a full line of cloth diaper & baby related items, but I was not aware that they also had products for older children & even adults. The Waterproof Apron comes in 3 sizes, Junior (3-6 yrs), Child (6-12 yrs) & Adult (12+). They are made of a unique waterproof material that is PVC Phthalates FREE. The material is machine washable (a total MUST in my house), stain & odor resistant and adjustable to fit a large size range. There is also a BIG pocket on the bottom.

Normally when the kids make brownies, they make a huge mess all over themselves, but these aprons have such great coverage that even Melanie didn't get any chocolate anywhere but on her face.
We received a Junior apron which fit both Marissa & Melanie very well. It has a hook & loop closure at the neck to secure it without being a strangulation hazard and there is a tie closure at the waist. Because of the great shoulder coverage, we have also used this apron as an art smock.

We also received a Child apron. It fit 9 yr old Maggie very well, but was almost too small for 11.5 yr old Morgan. He is over 5 ft tall, when I buy one for him I'll be getting the Adult size. The Child apron has a toggle on the string closure at the neck and a string to be tied at the waist. The blue & brown paisley was a GREAT neutral pattern for Maggie & Morgan to share. The kids have worn them quite a few times & I'm very pleased with how easy they come clean. They have not stained or faded at all. The material feels similar to nylon, but without the scratchiness and dries very quickly. I LOVE that it is waterproof, but still has a cloth feel.

I LOVE these aprons so much that I will soon be buying 3 more...another Junior, so that Marissa & Melanie don't need to share & 2 Adults, 1 for Morgan & 1 for ME!

How cute! I love the pink fizz child apron. I'm familiar with Bumkins and their quality since I used their diapers when I had babies. Hooray for cute aprons too.
