Lulu L’unicorn Tabard Reviews

I was immediately in love with this product. My first impressions were that this was a high quality, environmentally friendly and attractive tabard.  It is so easy to put on my son for messy activities. The pull on design made it quick and easy to protect his clothing. He also is able to distinguish between activities where things may get a little messy and others because of the significance of putting the tabard on.  We both loved the design. The colours were the right amount of bright and child friendly without being gaudy. My son loved then purple and was more than happy to wear it. This fitted really well. I was initially concerned that the aides may lead to spillage but this was not the case and it provided the right amount of coverage without being too cumbersome.  My son thought the colours were beautiful and I was so pleased to see a unicorn that was of a more classic portrayal than the standard unicorns you seem to see everywhere at the moment.  As previously stated I was concerned about the side wings being too gapey and that this would lead to mess escaping. This didn’t happen and provided a good even fit for him.  We had zero leakage of anything that we used and the tabard provided excellent protection for a very messy toddler!  We used the tabard seven times for various creative activities and daily for evening meal times.  Mainly use this for eating, painting, water play, play-dough, sticking with glue on birthday cards and glitter decoration.  I simply used a sponge to wipe away most mess but did also spray with my multipurpose cleaner for some meal time mess. It is very important to us this is biodegradable and Earth Friendly.  We try very hard to make decisions about our purchases based upon how sustainable they are. This would likely be a one off purchase but it still matters that it is kind to the planet. We have a duty to look after it and to demonstrate this to our children when choosing products for them.  I thought this was a very high quality product. The feel of the tabard is high end – no tacky shiny plastic here!  I think it offers excellent value for money. My alternative choice would have been a catch Kidston design apron which retails for around £10.  I liked the feel of the tabard most as it was sturdy yet not plasticky. I would buy this.  This would be my first choice for a protective tabard for my toddler. It is environmentally friendly, fits well, looks good and provides perfect protection for the messiest of activities.  I would recommend as this is easy to wear design makes protecting against mess simple.  There is nothing that lets this tabard down. It is protective, looks good, environmentally friendly and a hit with my child.  I was immediately taken with this tabard as the packaging was non fuss and gave me the impression that this was a high quality product which had been made with consideration for the planet. I was initially hesitant on two areas. One, whether my son would like the design and two, if the sides would provide enough protection for him. I shouldn’t have worried on either account. He loved the colours and thought it was beautiful. He said he thought the unicorn was very friendly and with each activity we threw at it I became more confident in its protection. I love the fact that it is environmentally friendly but this does not compromise its quality. It is easy to keep clean and super simple to put on. No tears or tantrums as a quick pull over the head does the job. I really do love the classic unicorn design which is so much more appealing to me than the cartoonish unicorns seen so frequently. Well done on a great product! Deborah Jane King – Albert 3 Years

Really lovely quality product with a great design. The concept of the Tabard is great being able to wipe it clean after use. The design of the Tabard was beautiful with the colourful unicorn. The fit of the Tabard was great for my daughter with plenty of room for growing into over the years. My daughter loved the design and instantly wanted to try it on. The elasticated sides were great but they weren’t adjustable which wasn’t a problem as it fitted fine as it was. The Tabard gave excellent protection against messy play and baking activities. We used the Tabard several times over the school holidays. We used the Tabard for activities like painting, sticking and baking. We even used it at messy meal times to protect clothing. It was super easy to keep clean. A quick wipe over with a damp cloth and it was as good as new. It is important to me that the product is earth friendly and brilliant to know it has a biodegradable coating. The Tabard was excellent quality. Absolutely worth the money, the Tabard is still in perfect condition after having lots of different things over it which have easily been cleaned off. My favourite thing about the Tabard was how easy it was to keep clean. I would consider buying this product after using it with great success over the last few weeks. I would recommend this product to family and friends with children as it makes messy play that little less daunting. This product has been a god send over the school holidays, it has been used constantly. Overall experience of using this Tabard has been a positive experience and has saved many items of clothing from ending up in the bin after being covered in paint and other messy things. Samantha Friend – Francesca 4 Years

Initial impressions of this were great. Loved the design (as did Isobel), very bright & colourful, it’s well-made and looks like it will last ages. I think the concept is brilliant. Her apron obviously gets lose and moves so this is perfect. A lot less movement on her body splits down the side means she can sit in it and still be protected. Isobel loves unicorns so we couldn’t have picked a better design! It’s colourful, eye catching and perfect for my unicorn obsessed child. Excellent fit even when sitting down. We have had problems in the past with other items designed to do the same job bunching up when she sits down, ending up with her being less protected or unable to see/complete her activity comfortably etc. But this was amazing! Very little movement when she moved so still protected her clothing. Isobel loves the design and can often be found wearing even when not doing messy things. The elastic at the sides is great; the product almost moulds to her so moves very little and offers great protection. Isobel loves making a mess! But this product stopped the mess being transferred to her clothes very effectively. We used quite often, anything where Isobel could make a mess we used it! She also liked wearing it when she wasn’t being messy. We used it for when we made cakes, painted, played with play doh, made birthday cards, she used it when she was plating in her play kitchen in imaginary play as well. This product got quite a lot of abuse, especially over the summer break and each time it was so easy to wipe clean. Looks brand new even though it has had lots of use (and abuse). The product being coated in biodegradable plastic is important. We’ve made a lot of swaps in the household to try and remove as much plastic waste as possible. It’s great to know this will not damage the environment long term. The product is great quality. It’s taken a lot of abuse over the summer holidays but looks brand new still. I would definitely buy this myself; in fact I even looked at designs for my son in slightly different products for when he gets into painting etc. Both Isobel and I love the design, it’s easy to get on and off and doesn’t ride/bunch up around her middle when she sits down. I have already investigated getting one for my son. The product is great quality, well-priced, easy to clean and Isobel loves the design so I couldn’t get her out of it at times. I would recommend to friends and family. The product is great quality, well-priced, easy to clean. Excellent product, great design for my little girl and so easy to clean. Can’t recommend enough. I think I’ve said everything I can! Theresa Schofield – Isobel 3 years
