I am a sucker for soft and fluffy so when I was asked to review this gorgeous Frugi Ted Polar Bear Fleece Jumper, I jumped at the chance.
INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT HOW THE FLEECE JUMPER IS MADE
Now, we all know and hear a lot of late about the planet and our environment, so to find out that this fleece jumper is made from recycled plastic bottles… well, what can I say other than the fact that I cried. Yup, I cried. I only watched a programme the other day about what is happening to our planet and the animals affected by plastic and it reminded me of that programme and what I saw. You really do have to have this jumper to realise what can be achieved from recycling plastic. The jumper is also made from recycled fibres and is a Recycled Polyester Fleece.
I love and adore the fact that it has the ‘Soil Association Organic’ certification logo on the label. If you do not know what this is I have put a brief description below for you.
Organic certification is a requisite to show that products have met the legal standards. The symbol of the ‘Soil Association is a known and trusted mark of organic certification internationally. If products meets the standards required, it means the certification body can give the certification to many of the organic standards at a high level.
ABOUT THE FLEECE JUMPER
OK…. A pun is on the way and I make no apology for it LOL… I can say with confidence; that you will absolutely love the Ted the polar bear fleece jumper ‘beary’ much, see, just a little pun… LOL. Not only is he cute, cuddle, soft, fluffy, with 2 big black eyes, a cute black nose and his flappy ears, given all the facts about how this Ted the fleece jumper is made etc, what is there to not like about it!
It has a V shaped neck line which helps when putting the child’s head through it. The fleece and the rib hem is stretchy and with no zips, fasteners or buttons to contend with it is so easy to put on. With long hem ribbed sleeves, your baby/toddler will really feel ‘snug as a bug in a rug’.
The size I have is 12-18 months / 80-86cm / 10-12kg. It fitted really well and comfortably on a 18 month old with still some room to spare. The workmanship and quality of this jumper is fantastic. It is sewn very well and seems to be very robust. Even my husband was impressed with how fluffy it is, kept stroking it up against his face LOL.
