The BundleBean travel cover was invented by a busy Mum of two, overwhelmed with the amount of ‘stuff’ that was needed for her little ones, she came up with a ‘one product for multiple use’ item that would make life easier for parents.
Only recently available, the BundleBean Solar is a summer version of the BundleBean Go. It is much thinner and has been designed to provide UPF 50+ protection for the areas of body that it covers. Like the BundleBean Go this product is versatile and can be used for buggies, car seats, bikes or slings. The product also comes with a handy quick dry hooded beach wrap which has the ability, via poppers, to be attached to the BundleBean to provide extra warmth for when it gets a bit more chilly.
On opening I found the travel cover to be made of a super thin material, similar to the sort of tops that joggers wear. The beach wrap is smooth on one side and has a beautifully soft fleecy feel on the other. The main cover has zippers on the side. The zippers are attached to elastic round the bottom of the cover and pulling the zips up tightens the end so that they can be fitted on a variety of different travel equipment, making it really easy to use.
The product is only available in white, presumably as this is a cooler colour. The only issue I had with this is that it gets dirty easily, especially as Jacob insisted on rubbing his feet all over it. However this is not too much of a problem as it doesn’t take up much space so it is easily chucked in with the usual washing load. What’s more, the product washes well and dries really fast. What I also liked is that the cover can be easily attached when little one is sleeping to minimise disturbance.
The BundleBean Solar is a fantastic idea, especially for younger babies and holidays. However, it is important to bear in mind that sunscreen will still need to be added if baby is coming in and out of the cover. The fact that there are two different sections is really useful as it further extends the products uses.
The RRP for this product is £34.99. I believe this is a great investment if bought when your child is very young as it has a great variety of uses. Once little one is in and out of the buggy more the uses may be more limited but is still a great little product to have to hand, especially for long journeys.
I was sent this item for the purpose of review, all opinions are my own
