3 Facts about Hazelbou
- Hazelbou has been created by Amy and Gavin, two proud parents who wanted to share their experience with others. You should know by now how much I am proud to support local businesses or family retail brands like Hazelbou. I won’t go as far as saying that The Frenchie Mummy Blog is my business as I see it merely as a (very addictive!) hobby, but I know how passionate you can be to a cause!
- The label’s owners strongly believe in sustainable products. Parfait, because Frenchie Mummy (and Baba bien sûr) agree 100% with this concept. Therefore, many of its products use materials like organic cotton and bamboo which are more sustainable than traditional materials and are also more gentle on baby’s skin. How could I not like that!?
- Some of the brand’s products also use recycled materials and support farmers and producers by being Fairtrade or made locally. Hazelbou looks for suppliers who go the extra mile and act fairly and responsibly to the environment and their people. The label has strong values. Amy and Gavin want their products to be engaging, made of excellent quality but also functional. They select the best designs possible and want happy customers. And I say ‘oui, oui, oui‘ to all of that!
Let’s see what we thought of the products we received!
Lifeboat Applique T-shirt
I love it when dressing up your enfant is also fun. It’s like Frenchie Mummy is an artist and she has to make the right couleurs working together. Don’t worry, I am not planning on becoming the new Picasso (I am terrible at art!), but I do my piece for this world…
The cut is perfect (I am not keen on top when they are too long) and a size 18-24 month fits Baba well.
Under the Sea Applique Submarine T-shirt
The second item we received for this review is from the same collection and quite similar to the first one we just described. We love the same features: colourful, fun, sustainable.
I must admit I have a crush for this applique. It’s particularly sweet. The colour also perfectly suits Baba.
Made of 100% organic cotton which, is a natural fibre free, this top really looks luxurious and durable. Furthermore, organic cotton has the advantage of not containing harmful chemicals which can irritate baby’s delicate skin.
This item (as the previous one) is extremely soft. Because of the fabric, this T-shirt is perfect for the season: warm enough if it’s a bit chilly, but not too hot if it’s a hot sunny day (not that it happens often in the UK at the moment, just saying!).
Overall, we really like both the tops we received from Hazelbou and at a retail price of £16.99 each on the website, I feel that it’s a good value.
But Hazelbou does more than selling you cute clothes! Look at the third item we received!
Plan Toys Floating Island
Ethically made using recycled rubber wood and coloured with organic colour pigments and water-based dyes, this bath toy looks fantastic and is so much fun!
Plan Toys is a sustainable toys label using exclusively sustainable materials! Intéressé? Look at their website here. It’s quite fascinating and they won a lot of awards across Europe.
It is very impressive. You don’t see many bébés playing with such toys!
Baba was delighted when we received the island and was fast to play with it. All the elements are fun, easy to manipulate for a toddler of his age.
I won’t share with you pictures taken in the bath. It’s a private part of Baba I am not willing to publish yet, but le Frenchie bébé is for sure enjoying some eco-friendly toys!
Baba Fashionista with Hazelbou – Le verdict
Hazelbou describes itself as a label selling beautiful products designed for baby, made for life. Having tried some of its products over the last couple of weeks, I must agree 100% with this slogan!
It’s obvious the brand cares about providing items made of excellent quality.
Not only the brand has a great choice of items for les petits, but it is also respecting the environment and helping the Fairtrade market.
In some words, a beautiful and colourful website filled in with soft, safe and made to last products.
We were already huge fans of Little Green Radicals and strongly believe this is the way forward in the childrenswear industry. But we are so happy to have discovered a new fabulous toys’ label!
If like us you want more than beautiful clothes, items that are set to last and make your baby feel comfortable, don’t look further! We found la place parfaite for you!
Disclosure: we received two adorable t-shirts and an amazing toy from Hazelbou in exchange for an honest review.
