If I’m honest, I’d never really thought about using a pram liner before I met with Bambella Designs UK at BML16 in June. The lovely lady we met, showed us some of their designs and pictures of the products and I thought “how nice”, passed on my business card and thought little more of it. So it was a nice surprise to have an email the next week offering me the chance to review one of their products.
I skipped on over to the Bambella Designs Boutique website to choose a product to review. I found the website particularly user-friendly and easy to navigate, which is important when you are taking the time to shop online.
It was a bit like being a kid in a sweet shop and being told to choose one thing – they all looked so lovely that I wanted everything! Once I had decided on a pram liner I then had the choice of around twenty lovely, modern fabrics. These are just a few of my favourites below.
I eventually plumped for the pink chevron fabric and it didn’t disappoint. It looks so beautiful in both our large mulberry coloured pram and smaller black stroller. I get stopped so many times by people asking me where I got my pram liner from! The staff in Mamas and Papas actually said that they thought it was the nicest one they had ever seen so it must be good! If we ever get bored of the pattern (unlikely) then the pram liner is in fact reversible, with a complimentary plain coloured fabric to match. It’s the little extra touches like this that make the Bambella products special.
Not only is it ridiculously cute but the fabric is really plush and padded, which gives me peace of mind that our little Sophie bear will be comfortable whilst she is pushed around town. The Bambella pram liners are handmade to the highest standard using 300 gram density inlay for additional comfort. I love the little added touches such as the side wings which provide a bit of extra support. She certainly seems to like it and has had lots of comfy naps in her little chariot.
Bambella pram liners must have been made by a parent because not only are they pretty, they are also practical. The liner has a waterproof lining inside that absorbs fluid in the same way as a cloth nappy (perfect for spilled drinks or worse still, toilet training time!) and best of all it is machine washable. Machine washable people!! That’s pretty much essential when you have a baby or toddler isn’t it? And let me tell you that after a week on holiday with a weaning baby, it needed to go into the washing machine so I can also confirm that it washes beautifully and keeps its quality.
Bambella pram liners are designed to fit into most prams on the market that have a five point safety harness (basically all modern prams/strollers then). Free harness covers are included with each pram liner in matching fabric just to finish off the whole stylish look and comfort for your little one.
I always like to write my reviews in a balanced way, addressing both the positive and the negative of a product. However, in this case I really can’t find any negatives! As a luxury item for my baby (because lets face it, a pram liner isn’t exactly an essential) I find the price tag of £39.99 to be reasonable and on a par with other liners on the market. I love the design, the quality and the comfort for Sophie so it is easy to see why the Bambella pram liner has been nominated for several awards including the Mumii Best Baby & Toddler Gear and the Loved by Parents Best Pushchair Accessory.
If you are looking for a special gift for someone who is having a baby or maybe for your own little one then I really would recommend you check out Bambella Designs. You won’t be disappointed!
