My son has always had a soft spot for Bob the builder. He loves the show and will always be attracted to any thing in a shop which has any influences from the friendly cartoon builder. So it was with great excitement that I came across this Bob the builder fleece sleeping bag whilst browsing on amazon.
When the sleeping bag arrived, I was very impressed with it's quality. It's navy colour was strong and has remained so, despite numerous washes. I loved the vibrancy of the Bob character on the front of the sleeping bag. His smiling face and open posture helping to make him appear really friendly. Again the bright yellow colours of his hat against the navy background helps to make this bag standout and look so very attractive.
My son has had this sleeping bag for a long time now. However it is still being used to this day. He loves it and although it has become slightly bobbly in appearance and feel, It still performs well in keeping him warm and cosy. This sleeping bag has been used in so many different situations. From sleeping up his Grampas to being the ultimate source of comfort when he is feeling unwell and needs to stay wrapped up on the setee.
Although this bag is smaller than an average bag, it is still a really good and generous size. The actual dimentions are 53 inches x 27 inches. My son has more than enough room to move around freely within this sleeping bag with great comfort. The zip which attaches on the side is chunky and has no sharp edges. The actual teeth of the zip are strong and are of a great quality. I have never had any problems with the zip becoming stuck.
This sleeping bag is easy to fold up and store away in the airing cupboard. It folds quite small so it doesn't use up a lot of room. Because it can be folded up, it is easy to transport from one house to another.
I find, that sometimes my son gets a little cold during the night if he is sleeping in this sleeping bag. Although this bag is made from lovely quality fleece. It is not particularly thick and in my opinion could do with a little more insualtion in order to make it more effective. I certainly would not consider taking this bag camping as I don't feel it would do an adequate job in providing warmth and protection.
However, as a novel sleeping bag which can be used for sleep overs and snuggle ups, I think this Bob the builder sleeping bag is excellent. It is made well, there are no holes or tears in the material of our bag and it has been used for a long time. It is very sturdy and has withheld being jumped on, dragged along the floor and used as a den.
I would certainly recommend this sleeping bag to anyone who has a child who loves Bob the builder. It is an excellent item to have stored away in the cupboard just in case of emergency sleepovers. But ours has hardly ever been stored away as it is in constant use and has certainly been well worth the money we paid for it.
I brought my 3 year old sister this Bob The Builder sleeping bag just before Xmas, it was supposed to be a present because she was going through a phase of loving Bob at the time but I ended up giving it her her early when she went to stay at my aunts for a couple of days. My aunt has got loads of bedding but her son wanted to use HIS sleeping bag that day so I sent this one over with my sister so they could both use them.
This is a fleece sleeping bag so is lovely and comfortable, it's not like the usual slippery sleeping bags you can get for camping. I'm not sure if this would be warm enough for camping out actually because even though it's lovely and snuggly in the house it's not all that thick for outdoor sleeping.
I'm not into saying certain things are more suitable for boys or girls but I DO think this is more suitable for boys because of the design and colour of the sleeping bag. It's not something you'd be EMBARRESSED about putting a girl in but I wish they did a pink one with Wendy or Scoop on it!
The picture of Bob and the logo on the pillow is actually dyed into the fleece. That's good because I thought it was going to be a transfer when I ordered it and was pleased that it wasn't, transfers come off too quick in the washing machine and I was also glad that the picture wasn't stitched in because my sister has got a majorly bad habit of trying to unpick stitches and I didn't want her to wreck the look of the sleeping bag.
It zips up one size and the zip is nice and big so that kids can do it themselves, my sister likes climbing in the top and wriggling down though so we don't use the zip all that much. It opens up quite wide when you undo the zip and is a nice smooth zip to pull up and down.
The pillow isn't very thick but it raises my sister's head nice so that she's not lying dead flat. She always looks mega comfortable lying in this sleeping bag and last month when she had a cold she ended up lying in it for days in front of the TV because it kept her nice and warm but not too hot. She doesn't use it in bed because she prefers her duvet.
You can machine wash AND tumble dry this sleeping bag, a bit of a bonus because most things like this can't be dried. This one has been washed at least 6 times and it still looks as good as new, it keeps its shape good and the only thing is that if you dry it in the tumble dryer it takes a long time and sometimes comes out looking very creased.
I deffo recommend this sleeping bag to anyone who is looking for something unusual to buy for a little Bob The Builder fan, by now most kids have got all the Bob toys so treat them to something that is actually useful as well as good looking.
The sleeping bag measures 53 inches long and 27 inches wide, I think it would do a child up until they was about 5 but it depends on how tall they are. My sister has only just got to 3 and it fits her fine with loads of room in it for her to grow.
We have been camping a lot recently and I bought all of my kids some sleeping bags to take with us.
I picked this Bob the Builder one for my younger son because it comes with a back pack which the sleeping bag fits into. I figured he would be able to carry his own sleeping bag whilst we got the rest of the stuff.
The bag is 53 x 27 inches so it is a perfect size for a young child. It is made from 100% polycotton filling and is made from a fleece material.
The bag is dark blue colour and has a large image on Bob covering the front. He has all his tools and underneath him it says "Lets Get Started!"
The material is lovely and soft, it is very comfortable to lie on and it keeps my son snug and warm at night.
There is a zip that fastens at the side and it goes all the way down to the bottom of the bag so it is easy to get in and out. Once my son is inside the sleeping bag there is plenty of room for him to move about and he hasn't complained about being uncomfortable in it.
The sleeping bag is suitable for machine washing and for drying in the tumble dryer.
The only problem that I had with this sleeping bag is that it doesn't fit very well into the back pack. It rolls up easily but takes a lot of pressure to fit it into the bag. My son isn't able to do it, but this is only a minor gripe.
I have found that this sleeping bag is very good quality, it is soft and comfortable and is ideally suited for a young child.
It cost me £12.99 which I found extremely good value and there is plenty of room in it to last him for a long time.
We recently purchased this for my 2 year old nephew who is Bob the Builder Mad. He goes around singing the song and wearing his Bob The Builder Helmet.
It was his birthday and knew that anything Bob would go down well but also that he had loads of the toys and didnt want to buy anything he already had.
When browsing through amazon I came across this sleeping bag and thought he would love it.
When it arrived it looked really good, it was the typical Bob the Builder Marine Blue background with a bright picture of Bob on the front. The picture is actually in the fleece and not a transfer which is great for washing. This can be washed normally at 40oC and is also tumble dryer proof.
It has a padded head area and a zip that goes the length of the side and along the bottom. It does NOT zip right up to the head, only to where the pillow area starts, great for childs safety.
It is 53 inches by 27 inches which comfortably fits my 4 year old.
It is only made of fleece so is not really ideal for camping outdoors on its own but is ideal for sleep overs and lying on the sofa.
When he received this the attraction was instant. He now takes this everywhere with although his mum likes to keep it in the car for if he falls asleep as it is great for in the pushchair now that he is too big for his cozy toes.
It has therefore been washed loads and his mum has decided to buy another one to use when this one is in the wash.
It is so nice when one of your gifts is really appreciated.
Snuggle up in bed, in front of the television, or use when going to sleep over at friends. Dimensions: 53 inches x 27 inches.
