Great Idea and looked pretty simple to install so thumbs up from me! Product came wrapped neatly in bubble wrap and the whole thing was boxed. Instructions easy enough to follow and came with pictures. These blinds are easy to install, safe and covers the glass rather than a roller blind would try to cover the whole space leaving gapes. Normally we use wooden slat blinds and black out curtains. The design looked great with a nice thick panel that sticks to the glass. This blind was very easy to fit. I sat baby in his cot while I did it but it took less time that I imagined it would. This blind is very easy to hitch up; you just need to fold the bottom of the blind up to the top and its magnetic so stays up. I’ve seen a similar product the Gro Blind but have never tried it. I think these did help my son sleep better, but with teething as well it’s hard to tell. But it definitely kept the room dark. Quality is great I pulled at the blind whilst it was still in my hands and it’s a very sturdy material. This product does offer good value for money. The only thing for me is I like to have as much light during the day let in as possible and because the magnetic strip is only at the bottom I feel that you can only fold the blind once up toward the top strip. Which takes the window to half glass. Maybe a magnetic strip half way on the blind so you can double fold (if you see what I mean?). I would consider purchasing this product. I would also recommend as works. Very Happy testing & using this Sunbuster blind. Mikki Golding – Lucas 10 Months.

First impression looked good quality blind. Packaging sufficient and effective. I found the instructions for measuring quite confusing as my windows don’t have the black seal mentioned and as a result I ended up ordering blinds that were slightly too big. Great that you didn’t need any tools and I was able to put these up myself in about 5 minutes whereas I normally have to wait until my husband has time on weekends to do jobs like this. It definitely gives better coverage than a traditional blind and straight after I installed it my husband asked if we should get one for our room. Normally I would have just used a roller blind to block out sunlight. The design is a brilliant idea. Easy to install but as I had ordered slightly too big the fit wasn’t great and unfortunately it was later discovered that we had received a faulty batch on blinds as it kept falling down. However, you just have to call the company and they will ensure issue is resolved for you. Easy to hitch up but I found that it blocked out half the window even when hitched up which was a bit unfortunate. I personally have not seen any similar products on the market. Amelie is a really bad sleeper so although I don’t think it helped her go to sleep I think that it probably helped her go back to sleep faster if she woke up in the evenings. Quality is very good. These are slightly on the expensive side for me as we are currently on a very tight budget. Design improvement – Could hitch up higher so doesn’t block up so much of the window. I didn’t like the Velcro pieces that had to be stuck to the window at the bottom to keep the blind in place. Maybe a magnet would look better? I would purchase these but would ask for more advice from the company regarding measurements. I would recommend as they work and outline you need to talk through measurements with company when ordering. I think that this is a good product, especially for summer, as it does really block out the light from the room but unfortunately I struggled with the measurements so the fit wasn’t good and I received a faulty batch. However, I was contacted by the company to organise for a replacement so on this factor good customer service. Catherine Baker – Amelie 15 Months
