Asda 5 Pack Owl Bibs
Advantages: Looks, price
Disadvantages: Not absorbent, can't be washed with delicate items
**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.
Summary: A decent basic bib
