Fidella FlyClick Plus (Toddler)

I must admit that my relationship to the German Fidella is a bit ambivalent - I literally fell in love with their flagship, the buckle-less Fly Tai, I was excited about their wraps, mainly thanks to their unusual width (you can read the review of the Outer Space Neptune wrap here and of the Outer Space Lilac ring sling here), but the all-buckle carrier, Fidella Fusion Toddler 2.0, was not a right fit for me at all. So what about the half-buckle carrier, basically a hybrid of my beloved Fly Tai and Fusion that I dislike? In the beginning, I must mention something that still confuses (not only) me about Fidella carriers - the "numbering" of the sizes. In Fly Tai, it is Baby Size and New Size (New Size being the bigger one), in Fusion it is Baby and Toddler. [...]

Luna Dream Standard

Luna Dream is one of the lesser known babywearing brands, at least in the Czech Republic; however, in Poland, it is quite a household name. It is a family company, based in Dobiesz, a town south to Warsaw, which offers budget-friendly woven wraps and carriers.  Concerning the wraps, just as in case of similar budget brands one cannot expect any experiments with blends - almost all the wraps are all-cotton, with prices from 60 to 80 Euro for a size 6 wrap, in rather conservative (but not dull) designs. In case of their carriers the price range is much wider, but the cheapest Standard costs a bit less than 70 Euro and the most expensive adjustable wrap conversion Grow Up costs (still quite affordable) 123 Euro.  We tested the Standard carrier, recommended for children from 74 to 92 cm by the manufacturer; allegedly wearable up [...]

Coccolare Toddler Turkus Horizontal

Coccolare is quite an unusual carrier, at least in the Czech Republic, because as far as I know no Czech (or Slovak) manufacturer offers this type of carrier. It is a "waist-belt-less" carrier, or better said, it has a "waist belt" made of the black polyester straps simply attached to the back panel with no padding whatsoever. Aside from the basic versions, such as the tested Turkus Horizontal which is made of a simple, thin Coccolare's original wrap with elegant diamond weave, this Polish manufacturer makes carriers for such household names like Loombera or also Kenhuru in the past. Therefore I assume there must be something interesting about these carriers what makes the popular at least in Poland. To explain, why they are so "special" and how the "Coccolare type" carrier looks like, I attach a picture I borrowed from the official website of the manufacturer - the carrier [...]

PePe Porter Carrier

PePe Porter is a relatively new player on the Czech carrier field. PePe stands for Petra Pejsarová from Nová Ves near Mělník, Central Bohemia - and that is basically all the information I can give you about history of this brand. Again, relying on the "small Czech babywearing world" and its existence on Facebook only, therefore the absence of a proper website and lack of any easily retrievable information about PePe as a company. I actually had to dig up who PePe is and that her business is legal with a proper license number very deep in the order form you fill when ordering the carrier. Yeah, you can live and prosper like that too, but it does not look reliable nor professional in my point of view. The tested carrier is fully adjustable, from 3-4 months to 3 years according to the manufacturer. I [...]

GoBimbi Testing

It was last autumn when I got all excited about Bimbi (now it is GoBimbi ;) ) - you can find the review of their wonderful Maxi carrier here. As you can read in that article, "Madame Bimbi" is Bronislava Froncová, a Slovakian mum of two. After we released the review we started chatting via Instagram and agreed on further testing of GoBimbi babywearing products. Hereby we want to thank her again for the exclusive opportunity to test the carriers and a wrap from her brand new collection as the first wearers from the Czech Republic. The current trend among the carrier manufacturers is to make wrap conversions from their own original wraps - GoBimbi went no different way; I actually praised this brand for their effort to stand out when reviewing the Maxi carrier with a beautiful original folk embroidery. My impression is that nowadays [...]

Rischino Megatesting

Rischino is one of those brands that had to grow on me. Good wraps - but discrepancies in what the manufacturer declares as to their length (a very well broken-in size 5 measuring only 404 cm in case of an otherwise great Blue Starlight wrap) and as to their weight (super-skinny Mint Diamonds wrap with the declared weight of 285 gsm vs. the counted weight of 217 gsm); good carriers - the very good adjustable Flexible carrier and the Half Buckle Flexi carrier I liked even more; but still, Rischino was not one of the runner-ups among the babywearing brands for me personally. What changed my mind? Not only this tester mega-packet (provided by the Czech Facebook Rischino group - hereby we want to thank for the opportunity!), but let's not get ahead of ourselves. ;) Rischino by Kenhuru Candy Elephants Composition: 100% combed cotton [...]

Zumbucca Carriers Testing

It is time to make amends (again)! Zumbucca is one of those brands we have been planning to write an article about for more than a year - I first encountered these carriers last June at a babywearing festival in Brno and again in autumn in Ostrava during the International Babywearing Week - and as you can see, we actually tested the carriers in winter (meanwhile, you already know the story - my gall bladder-hospital-surgery-Christmas - that is all history by now and luckily it did not interfere much with our testing - and yes, again, post-processing of the photos was the main thing that kept this review deep in our archive for so long :D ). I think I maybe mention it every time I write a review about an adjustable carrier and want to compare - Zumbuccas are great and we happily recommend [...]

Lenny Up Carrier and Lenny Lamb Wraps Testing

It is almost unbelievable that it has been almost a year since we last published an article about such a wrap-carrier giant like Lenny Lamb. Moreover, it was about a carrier, Lenny Lamb Wrap Tai (and before that, in the absolute prehistory of this blog, even without a proper photoshoot, the adjustable Lenny Up carrier) but we have not officially tested any of their wraps yet! However, during this spring we had the opportunity to try several Lenny Lamb wraps and also to re-test the Lenny Up carrier. Lenny Lamb is a family company that was born in the head of one mum from Warsaw in 2007. She had nothing to wear her son in – it is hard to believe that there was no baby wrap manufacturer in Poland, such a babywearing superpower nowadays, by that time. It was this mum, Asia Bogdan, her [...]

Sestrice Mega-testing

Linda and I, we are very fond of the Slovakian brand Sestrice, whether it comes to their wraps or their marvelous carriers (we already published a review of one of their wraps - Slncia Lollipop and also a very excited article about their Carrier and Carrier Plus wrap conversions). This time, it was not only one wrap, not only one carrier - but the whole "Sestricebox" with 5 wraps and 2 carriers! Also, it was a lucky coincidence that my friend lent me another Sestrice wrap around the time of the Sestricebox testing, therefore - hold on tight! - here you have a review of 6 wraps (!) and a retest of Carrier Plus. Right in the beginning, I must applaud to Sestrice just for the choice of testers in their test-box - from a newborn wrap to a toddler piece; different types of weave, different blends and designs [...]

KiBi EVO Carrier

During the last autumn, our local babywearing group had the opportunity to test the wrap-conversion KiBi carrier - basically a legendary and still very popular carrier manufactured in the Czech Republic which Linda and I are very fond of (it was actually Linda's very first carrier). We often recommend it to the babywearing beginners as an affordable, durable and long-term solution of their problem if they are looking for an adjustable carrier that will fit really "until the end". KiBi EVO is not an alternative version of the "old" KiBi but it replaced it completely. If you wish to buy the old version, from now on you can get only a second-hand one or probably some pieces forgotten in some e-shops. So what is different? The most obvious difference is the waist belt - its shape is different (is is not straight as in the [...]
