Coming up with super-stylish, innovative products is something kiwi women do amazingly well so it was no surprise to me to find out that the uber-cute range of Undercover Sleeping Bags for kids are designed, manufactured, and distributed right here in New Zealand by Marlborough resident, Kate Guthrie.
It’s almost our prime camping and glamping Summer season here in New Zealand and I can’t think of anything worse than trying to nod off to sleep in a sticky, hot sleeping bag made from entirely synthetic fabrics. I actually wouldn’t be able to get Nixon to sleep in this way – the fuss would be unbearable. And sweaty lol.
Little peeps will LOVE curling up in their Undercover creations due to a few genius features that make these dreamy sleeping bags a kid-must-have that will be used and loved, year round;
- 100% cotton outer and warm thermal padding – YAY, no more summer stickiness!
- A pillow compartment!!!! Soooo many time when camping I’ve been woken up because Ethan had lost his pillow in the night – usually because it’s slid off his slippery sleeping bag lol. Once unrolled, you can pop a pillow into the all-in-one design.
- No separate storage bag (to lose). YAY, again lol. The sleeping bag rolls up and is stowed into the pillow compartment.
I know many of you love to try and think outside the box when it comes to buying for your kids. Shopping local, shopping small and supporting New Zealand creatives is an awesome endeavour and can make Christmas Shopping SO much more fun when you can cut out the trips to the mall – and cut out the plastic fantastic toys that will be old news in a month anyway! Undercover sleeping bags will be loved and used all year, for years, as they suit ages 2-12 ish – depending upon how quickly your pre-teen is growing of course.
Available in 8 super stylish designs at $199 each, there’s an Undercover Sleeping bag to suit every little camper – or every little person having their first sleep-over at Nana’s – How cute are these fabrics?
