WAHM Review (+Giveaway): Sweet Bobbins *CLOSED*


Sweet Bobbins is run by two moms, Angela and Rene, who live on opposite sides of the United States!  And another really neat thing?  They are able to employ a few other stay at home mom's who are looking for a little extra income, or as they put it, a couple of hours of adult conversation.  I love when a business you created to benefit your own children ends up benefiting the lives of other children as well!  They are really doing this work-at-home mom thing the right way!

After some discussion, they sent me 6 of each size of their wipes in gender neutral prints.  They are marvelous!  I have another set of wipes and they are just plain white.  The ones I registered on Amazon for are as well...though the stitching around the edge may be colorful.  These are SO much more fun that that!  I love them!  Part of me wonders how I'll ever be able to use these to wipe Baby Girl's bum.  lol.

Can't even pic a favorite they are ALL so cute!!  ;)

5 Stars!

Here is the size comparison of the smaller size and the bigger size, as well as a comparison of their size vs. Gro Via wipes:

6x8 size vs. 8x8 size

Sweet Bobbins wipe (green) vs. GroVia wipe (white)

The quality is fabulous.  You can really tell that they want their products to last.  The stitching is beautiful and very well done.  I love being able to SEE quality!  :)

Can you say stitching is gorgeous??

5 Stars

And they are SO soft!  Like unbelievably!  One side is flannel and the other side is OBV.  If you are like me, you don't know what that means.  haha.  I had to look it up.  It is Organic Bamboo Velour.  Which sounds amazing!  And as far I can find, OBV wipes are not made by any major retailer (please let me know if you know differently).  This is so unique!  And an attribute I LOVE!  Anything organic for baby is awesome!  And bamboo is much more absorbent then usual fibers such as flannel or terry cloth.  I have no hesitations about using these on Sprout's bottom at all.  They are so much softer and thicker than the GroVia brand.  Check out that soft, OBV backing:

Fluffy, organic wonderfulness!

5 very soft and fluffy stars!
As far as price point goes, it is really difficult.  Since there isn't a major brand that carries OBV wipes, there isn't really a fair comparison (for this reason, I am not going to give a star rating).  A set of 12 GroVia wipes is somewhere between $10 and $12, depending on the retailer.  A set of 12 small wipes from Sweet Bobbins usually runs $15 and a set of 4 larger wipes (comparable to GroVia) usually runs $6.  So, yes, they are more expensive.  But I'm going to say the cost difference is probably worth it since the material is organic and bamboo.

The customer service I received from Sweet Bobbins was great!  She was prompt and timely.  And so very personable.  I love dealing with people that actually seem human, right??  ;)


5 Stars

Overall, I am genuinely impressed with these wipes.  SUPER excited that they are organic bamboo and oh so soft.  These will probably be my go to wipes!

5 Stars for that awesome OBV.  ;)
