Playtime with Snoozie and Moose!

Christmas is fast approaching, and with that in mind, today I’d like to share some info about Australian company Snoozie + Moose. These guys sell a range of safe, natural art products for kids that are perfect for stocking stuffers and Christmas gifts. Make sure you pop them on your Santa list – they have all kinds of cool creations including crayon rocks, play dough, and veggie sidewalk chalk.

Snoozie + Moose Crayon Rocks, Natural Play Dough

Snoozie + Moose is a family run business based in Brisbane. In the range you’ll find Galaxy play dough (coloured with natural charcoal), the Sweet Shop play dough set (which contains the new release ‘chocolate’ play dough and is coloured with organic cacao powder so it smells like real chocolate…. yum), and the super famous Crayon Rocks!

Crayon Rocks are an eco crayon that was designed by a special needs teacher to teach the correct pencil grip. They are made from sustainably sourced soy wax and coloured with natural mineral pigments. Awesome!

KID Tested... Merino Baby!

Today we’re talking about Merino Baby – a range of beautiful children’s products made from 100% Australian merino wool. We’ve been testing out a few items from the current collection, including singlets, pants, hoodies, and bodysuits. I’m new to merino wool and this is the first merino clothing that I’ve tried. We also have a little giveaway at the end of the review.

Merino Baby Clothing Review

The folks at Merino Baby design their collection for superior comfort using premium ultra-fine wool, which makes it soft against babies skin. The features of merino wool include natural comfort, temperature regulation, breathability, and odour resistance and we found that the garments retain their shape well and wash up as good as new. I was very relieved to discover that the merino is machine washable, as hand washing when you have a new addition is way too much work!

Merino Baby Clothing Review

We’ve found the Merino Baby garments cool enough to wear on a spring day, with just enough warmth for cooler evenings. I like how the garments provide a snug fit, yet have plenty of stretch so as not to restrict movement. I also love the colour palette, especially the pink and white stripes!

My favourite little outfit from the range is the pink stripe hoodie, plain pink vest, and pink and white striped pants. The hoodie has the sweetest little pocket on the front, and I kind of wish I could get one in my size! For the boys, I’m loving the blue and grey striped bodysuit with matching grey pants. It’s a simple, yet adorable look, plus all of the Merino Baby garments mix and match for a versatile wardrobe.

The verdict… classic, charming, and premium quality.
