More Nintendo Bumkins Swag For Kids (And Parents!) Reviewed.
Our good friends at Bumkins sent us another care package recently with a ton of goodies from their Nintendo line of products. As in our last review of their junior pocket bib, Bumkins excels in two major areas, use of license and quality. This next batch of products does not fail to impress! Take a look at our video below for the review of all of the products that were sent.
The couple I want to focus are the teethers, cold packs, and the Super Mario Bros. 3 meal time set. My 3-year old loves his "Super Mario Cup" especially. He drinks out of it, he rinses after brushing teeth with it. The thing is, these type of products are not available anywhere else (officially) and last! You can throw all five pieces of the mealtime set in the dishwasher with no problem (top rack only) and after several washes, we have not seen anything fade or damaged. The kids love it because it's Mario and making their meals, snacks, and teeth brushing more enjoyable. As a gamer dad, I am proud to have my children use these products as I would have loved to have such things when I was my children's age.
The teethers and cold packs are pretty awesome too. Very durable and in some of your favorite Mario and Nintendo shapes. Easily transportable, the cold packs are perfect for storing with lunches or when the inevitable boo-boo occurs. The teethers are great due to their high durability. We have had some teethers in the past that broke apart or ended up disgusting from being hidden in the carpet and couches. My son Colin loves his Goomba teether as he is familiar with the character, and he has those pesky teeth puncturing through. We like to stick Goomba in the fridge to get a little cooler for an extra effect. Washing is simple as well, we hand wash both the teethers and the cold packs with warm water and the same soap we use to clean their cups and bottles. All dirt and grime come off with ease and ready to be used once again.
Overall we are super impressed by this line of products from Bumkins, I truly love their sense of design on these. I would really love to see some more products using Nintendo licenses. Even Super Mario Bros. has a few missing notable characters. I could see a Princess Peach line being popular with parents with girls, and of course everyone loves Yoshi! So many possibilities! Hopefully, we hear more releases coming soon later this year. For now, check our full video review below!
