Product Tested By Laura Walker – Seth 1 Year

It looked fun and cosy. Came in jiffy bag and well protected. Few too many staples though. My little one doesn’t keep gloves on so this is a great idea and if he pulls them off they won’t go astray. Quality of material used is good. I probably wouldn’t pay £21.00 maybe in the region of £15.00. I would consider purchasing this and I would recommend. I really like the designs as it solves the problem of missing gloves. Fun design, easy to wear and all 3 items in one unique piece of clothing. Laura Walker – Seth 1 Year

The product looked good and felt nice and soft. It was fun and something a child would want to wear. The packaging is pretty non-descript. Similar packaging to other clothing items. I think the idea behind the Minkey is a really good idea as trying to get a toddler to keep a hat scarf and gloves on can definitely be a challenge. I think the material serves its purpose, it will keep little heads and hands warm. It's not rough or scratchy so wouldn't irritate delicate skin either. It was also be easy to wash in the washing machine. I would rate the quality as good but wouldn't say excellent. The material also isn't very stretchy, so it can be a bit restrictive. I also found that the sizing seems to be on the small side. I ordered a 2-3 for my 22 month old and it was quite snug, if I had been buying it I probably would have got a bigger size. I think the product has a good price point. If you add up the cost of buying a scarf, hat and gloves separately you would probably be looking at around about the same price. So from that perspective I don’t think it’s too expensive but also don’t think it offers particular value for money (i.e. a saving). My son didn’t like the restriction of hood/hat. If my toddler didn't have an issue in general with wearing hats then I would definitely consider buying it. I would recommend as I think it’s a good idea and much easier than separates. Good idea for a product, the designs are fun and the quality is good. Does what it sets out to do. Only criticisms would be the sizing and the material could potentially be slightly nicer quality. It would be good if they provided a knit / woollen option as well as this would provide a different material option as well as providing a material with a bit more stretch / elasticity.

I thought it was a good idea as my daughter is always removing her hat and her gloves. This arrived in padded jiffy bag which protected it well. I did like having hat, scarf and gloves all in one garment. This means fewer things to worry about losing and daughter pulling off. Good quality material was soft and sturdy. When you look at the price of hats and gloves today I feel this product would do better if sold for £15 considering the material is not plush or fleecy. If it was cheaper then yes. As much as I loved the initial idea I found that I could not just pull the balaclava bit off my daughters head when inside shops, I had to take the whole thing off and as we tended to have a coat on top it was rather fussy and distressed her. It would be better if there was a press stud or Velcro around the neck which allowed you to detach it and loosen around the neck, thus enabling you to just remove the hat when inside shops and then put the balaclava bit on when outside. I use the minkey when outside like off to the park or a walk but not day to day if going in and out of the car or shops. I would recommend as it may work for other children, it just didn’t for mine. It may be something that a bigger size could rectify. I gave 4 as in certain situations this is a fantastic product at keeping a child warm and not losing hat and gloves. I could not give 5 as I felt it could have some improvements in design or fabric to be worthy of £21. As stated above I would have preferred the option to loosen the neck so that I didn’t have to keep taking the whole minkey off when indoors. I like using the minkey for trips to the park or walks where we are constantly outside but when off to the shops I do not as we are in and out of shops and I would want to remove the balaclava bit in case she gets hot. As much as I thought the design was cute with ears and a face I would like to see a plain one without ears that would match in with her other outfits and not stand out quite so much. A minkey with furry design would be nice too. Catherine Egleton - Liberty 1 year 2 months
