I love the JoJo Maman Bebe range of clothing which is available online, they produce some really stylish and good quality clothing and this sun hat is a great example of their cool products which are well designed and while they are not cheap neither are they at the top end of the price range, this sunhat cost me £8.49 which was a slightly reduced price as I bought it mid way through what passes for a summer in this country. The one I bought was for new born babies up to six months. The actual range of sizes are for up to five year olds and there is a choice of colours and patterns.
I was tempted to buy the pink kissing fish one but in the end opted for a floral design which is pale blue in colour and covered with pink and purple flowers with greenery as well. It is a lovely wide floppy sun hat which provides complete coveridge for your babies head, face and upper body and keeps the sun off and reduces the risk of sunburn.
It is made from cotton which means that your babies head will not sweat and it seems to be very comfortable on as my daughter has never really be that bothered with it on and tried to remove it. It is well made with good quality materials and a nice bright colour. It is also easy to clean and retains its shape even after washing. A lthough the size is up to six months it has proven to be a genrous fit and a great product.
JoJo Maman Bebe is a company who I have to admit I had never even heard of before purchasing Jessie's sun hat earlier this year, they have a wonderful looking web site online but I am unsure as to weather they actually operate out of a shop you can visit.
As I have said I had never heard of the company until Jessie's hat arrived which may sound a little strange but at the start of the nice weather this year, not that we have had much I browsed ebay for sun hats for my 3 daughters and came across a lovely looking pink floral sun hat for Jessie in 0 to 6 months so ordered it, I paid just 99p for it with free postage and it was a brand new item, I didn't really think anything of this until it arrived and I checked out the web site on the label, the hat retails on the web site at £12 so I had a great bargain.
I was a bit concerned the hat wouldn't last Jessie very long as she was 5 months old when I brought it so according to the sizing guide would only get a month out of it but that didn't matter for what I ad paid for it but when she put it on it was a loose fit which wasn't too loose that it wasn't wearable but it certainly wouldn't have fitted her before she was 4 months old, the hat has lasted her until she is 11 months old, Jessie is small for her age though but not majorly.
The hat is made out of a lovely soft cotton material, it has a very wide brim on the hat that protected all of Jessie's face from the sun and even her shoulders which is really needed when you have a young child, the hat ids lined so I was a bit worried it would get hot on her head in the afternoon sun but it didn't it kept her very cool.
On the web site these hats are available in 6 different designs and are available from 0 to 5 years so are going to suit a wide range of children, they look lovely on and washed very well, the hat didn't loose its shape when washed like others I have brought in the past and still looks like new now.
For the price I paid this is a brilliant hat and I would have paid up to £5 for it but there is no way I would ever have paid the full £12 for this hat.
JoJo Maman Bebe sunhats are admittedly slightly more expensive than a run of the mill sun hat, but they are so beautiful - especially the girls ones - and they really do stand out from the crowd. Of course they also meet the important criteria as far as shading baby's and toddler's heads and face from the sun is concerned. They come in gorgeous patterns and colours. My daughter has a pretty pastel pink hat with tiny flowers on and then the JoJo Maman Bebe label is attached to the outside of the hat, but in a subtle, non-invasive way. French clothes for children are so lovely. The choice of material used is so suitable for children - none of the horrible polyester stuff - and the range of clothes is so traditional. My daughter always receives compliments when she wears this hat in the summer and they have plenty of room in them meaning it should fit this year as well.
