I always know when a product I'm trialling is going to be a hit. It is a sort of gut instinct. When mylittleduckling first contacted me to tell me about their awesome baby pilot hats, I just KNEW. For me, the ultimate tests for a new piece of baby or toddler clothing are
- is it comfortable?
- is it practical? as in, will it stand-up to the test of tiny hands? and wiggly babies?
- does it make heads turn?
The answer, for this gorgeous baby pilot hat is a resounding Yes, Yes, Yes!
mylittleduckling make gorgeous, imaginative hats for babies and toddlers from 6 months to 4 years. The hats come in a range of colours suitable for both girls and boys - our favourites are Dragonfly blue and this Lollipop purple which Holly loves to pieces.
When Holly first received her mylittleduckling hat, she wanted to wear it straight away and insisted on wearing it in the house. I thought we were going to have arguments about it! The hat is a soft, knitted cotton on the outside, with a snuggly bright yellow cotton fleece lining. On the outside, the pretend goggles really perked Holly's imagination. The goggles are fabric and are well-attached to the hat (trust me, Holly has already tried to move them!) and each side of the hat is covered with decorative "flaps" with press-studs.
On our first weekend of day trips and shopping trips, Holly was stopped by at least 3 different parties of people interested in finding out more about her hat. It really is something different and brings a smile to people's faces. Above all though, this 100% cotton hat is warm, flexible and comfortable... it's a hat that is practical, yet gorgeous. We LOVE it. In fact, when my husband saw it, his words were "it's almost like it was tailor made for Holly". I can't think of a style or colour of hat that would suit her better.
