When we bought our new double red buggy and it came without footmuffs I started the search for a 2 red footmuffs that would look good on my pram but also keep my girls nice and snuggly in the cold british winters.
When I first saw this on the very website I fell in love with its gorgeous red colour and cute hello kitty theme, I knew it would go perfectly with my pram.
As I had an account already with very.co.uk I chose to buy the my first hello kitty footmuff from them and I paid £30 which I thought was a good price as you can pay a lot more for a footmuff.
The footmuff is also sold at argos and on amazon. Prices may differ by a few pounds each way but generally you are looking at paying around the £30 mark.
Once the footmuffs had arrived I was really excited to open them. They come in a lovely durable plastic carrier with a zip and handles which is great to keep and store the footmuff in when not in use to keep it clean.
When you take it out its just gorgeous! The back section and inside is made from a lovely soft red fleece thats super snuggly. The outer bottom part that covers their feet is made from a more waterproof material with a really pretty pale yellow bow design all over. At the top of the foot part is a folded over section with a little red pocket thats home to a small hello kitty toy thats attached by a cord so baby can play with it but you don't run the risk of losing it. I think this is such a lovely feature and one I've never seen before.
Another unique feature is the attached cat head shaped pillow that features a large pale yellow bow. This was one of the things that sold the footmuff to me its super cute and really makes it stand out from your bog standard footmuff.
The footmuff is really easy to fit to your pram. Its a universal footmuff so shouls fit most 5 and 3 point harness prams. On the back section there are 3 slits on each side to slide the shoulder straps through at the correct height. There are two on each side for the waist straps and two lower down for the bit between baby's legs. So all you have to do is select the correct height and width for your child and slide your prams straps through. It fits my britax b-dual perfectly on both the top and bottom and I've also used it on a mamas and papas pliko pramette with no issues.
I really like that you can totally unzip the bottom section off to leave a pretty pram liner meaning you can use it in the summer as well!
My little one always looks so snuggly and at 10 months she has plenty of legroom, I reckon it will do her until the age of 2 depending how tall she gets. Even once she out grows the foot part I will still use the liner.
Overall I love this footmuff. Its lovely quality at a really reasonable price. I love that its hello kitty without being too in your face. It certainly does it job of keeping my girls warm too. 5 stars.
Just a quick side note- there are more items in the my first hello kitty range that include a parasol, highchair and playmat.
The second I saw this foot muff I instantly fell in love with it and new I just had to buy one, it cost me £30 brand new which I think is an average price for a foot muff as I have seen different ones for a lot more expensive as well as cheaper ones. I am sure if you looked around you could get a good second hand one though as mine washed weekly for twelve months and still looked like new with no fading or bobbling at all and all marks came out of it easily in the wash too.
This foot muff is suitable from birth if used with a lie flat pushchair but I didnt use mine until my daughter was 6 months old but I think it would be nice and comfortable, cosy and warm for a new born as the whole thing is fleece lined which kept its softness and fluffyness unlike other items after being washed.
It is a universal fit so can be used with any pushchair not just the hello kitty one it is designed to go with and I used it on my Graco which it fitted perfectly.
My daughter found this foot muff really comfortable and warm through the winter months and the front zipped off to leave a very nice looking comfy pram liner for the summer too which was easier to take off and wash than to try to clean the pram seat if she had had a drink or food in there.
For the price it lasted really well, the adjustable hello kitty shaped head rest is great too especially if you are going to use it from a very early age or if your child has a tendency to nap whilst out in the buggy like mine used to, the teddy in the pocket on the front is a nice addition but I would have prefered it to be attached with ribbon to the foot muff so it couldt get lost as this could easily happen spoiling it.
I would recomend this to any one looking for a reasonable priced foot muff.
