Polish LittleFrog is not little at all. On the contrary, it is a hell of well-fed toad, at least within Central Europe, competing on the babywearing market since 2013. Their wraps are well-known to all wearers (even to beginners). The heart of LittleFrogˈs offer consists of simple twill weave wraps with low weight, which they were stuck with for a year and half (according to Slingofest.com) before they released the first, now legendary, Echo. However, the stripes for newborns are their ageless classics, furthermore affordable classics, and therefore it is no wonder that they very often are beginnerˈs first choice. Regarding design of jacquard weave wraps, LittleFrog keep it low as well – with sporadic exceptions such as Charm, they usually release simple, often geometric, patterns which cannot offend anybody.
For the above stated reasons, Kiss the Blue Frog is not exactly what babywrapping maniacs expect when you say ˈLittleFrogˈ. The pattern is nice and witty, however it is really atypical for LittleFrog, although it is literally full of frogs :). The colour, unfortunately, differs from the promo photos a lot, in reality it is a lot paler – in other aspects, I would say I like the wrap.
I was pleasantly surprised when I tied the wrap – the tying and tightening went very well, it slipped when it should and held tight on one knot only. The weight of 275 g/m2 is absolutely ideal for Emilka (weighing 9 kilograms) and me, the carrying was very enjoyable. When you touch the wrap, it is tender and soft. The care is undemanding, the wrap is almost crease-resistant and certainly not prone towards pulls. In my eyes, the froggy performed perfectly, and moreover managed to change my opinion on LittleFrog as a brand of ˈtwill weave wraps for little babiesˈ. I will certainly pay more attention to LittleFrog wraps in the future.
Finally, I want to introduce our brand new WrapTrapped girl, Jana (who traps a boy, Štěpán, in a wrap, so our website is not so girly anymore, yeah!). Jana tested the froggy just right after me – and as you can probably guess, the outcome was quite different. First of all, the effect of a freshly washed wrap – hot summer, people are sweating more than racing horses, plus my sensitive bloodhoud sense of smell … well, the wrap was just screaming: “Put me into the washing machine!” It takes some serious wearing to make the washed wrap soft and snuggy again. For that I am very sorry, Jana! 🙂
