“ Brand: Asda / Type: Bibs „
**Price and Availability**
The Asda 5 Pack of Owl Bibs is available exclusively in larger Asda supermarkets, in independent George shops and on the Asda website (a delivery charge applies though you can get them delivered to store for collection, even in small Asda Supermarkets, for no charge).
I bought a pack in the sale, for only £2 which was a great price, I think the original price was £4 as they had a half price sticker on them. At either price, it's not expensive for five bibs.
The bibs come as stated in a pack of five and I would say these are from 6 months plus as they are on the larger side with a sizeable neck hole and large squared off shape rather than a small rounded off bib. They come in five different but complimentary designs and though the set is called owl, they don't actually have owls on every single bib, one is plain striped and one is multicoloured flowers
They have a thick robust plastic back meaning they don't allow any liquid to come through. The velcro is about half an inch in length, more than enough for a secure fit which doesn't allow even the strongest of toddlers to pull it off.
They look nice on, and the colours are vibrant.
I'd say the bibs are more protective than absorbent. They are much better suited therefore to food, as drinks tend to roll down the bib and onto your toddler's legs, which pretty much defeats the purpose! I use these bibs most when my daughter is having some fruit or a yoghurt because it allows her to feed herself without getting it all down her front.
I must say that for general use I prefer an all plastic catcher bib but these are good for little snacks and so on, and excellent for travel, too.
The bibs wash and dry well, though I accidentally put one in the tumble dryer and ended up with a shrivelled mess which went in the bin, oops! One point to note is never ever put these bibs in with delicate items like chiffon or lace, or tights and so on as they have a tendency to open (ie the velcro comes apart) when being washed and it can pull on things. I tend to put them in with old towels, tea towels, cleaning rags and so on, not best clothes. You can of course hand wash them.
I think for a few pounds there is definately a place for the Asda 5 Pack of Bibs, and the owl design in particular is very cute for little girls. But it won't replace the all plastic catcher bib for convenience for me, nor will it beat the travel convenience of a disposable catcher bib made of paper. But for having a few in the house or car for the odd banana or yoghurt, yes, they're good bibs, large, very protective, but not really for drinks as they're not an absorbent type of bib.
Three stars out of five for me - a decent basic bib that won't break the bank.
This is a review of the five pack of owl bibs I recently purchased from Asda. I was fed up of the same old (stained) bibs and needed some decent ones for using when we go out and about. I love owls, especially in children's clothing as they always look so cute. Bibs are an essential item in our household as our daughter's quite messy they really help protect her clothes when eating and drinking.
The owl bibs come in a pack of five and each bib is different. The colours are all complimentary and I think they are on the larger side compared to other bibs we have. They are a squarish shape and fasten behind the neck with Velcro. The bibs are backed with plastic which prevents them soaking any liquid on to clothing.
Price and availability
A pack of five bibs is priced around £3 which is definitely at the cheaper end of bib prices. Usually you can expect to pay around a pound per bib so these are excellent value.
I do tend to find myself picking these up to use as the larger size provides more protection. However, the Velcro is quite shallow so not a strong hold and in the right (or wrong!) mood my 20 month old can easily rip off these bibs and she does so frequently. She does this with other bibs too but it seems to come off easily which is perhaps a safety feature on this bib.
We have had our bibs around three months now and they still look quite nice. A couple have stained that I have attempted to tackle with vanish but it's not that noticeable now. I think the bibs are nice quality and finished to a high standard. I do think these look lovely and are probably designed more for girls to wear as some of the patterns are a bit hearts and flowers.
Whilst not perfect, these bibs look nice and generally protect clothing although we do have to refasten them quite often. It is worth noting that owls only feature on three of the bibs and the ones towards the back of the packet have flowers on them instead (they are really pretty too).
You can never have too many bibs!
