aden + anais Hooded Towel and Washcloth Review

By Kate |

I’ve been familiar with the company aden + anais and its signature product – the muslin wrap – for months. But, until recently I didn’t know aden + anais also offers products perfect for older kiddos, too.

About aden + anais

We’re Aussie mothers who moved from Australia to the United States in 1996. In preparation for the arrival of our children, Aden and Anais, we went in search of muslin wraps like the ones we have back home, a staple with Australian mothers. …None of the materials the other wraps used were the same soft, breathable muslin cotton we were used to in Australia. So, we decided to make our own. We also discovered that the only washcloths we could find were too harsh on our new babies’ skin. We decided that muslin would be the ideal fabric to use on the delicate skin of our newborns at bath time, and so we also produced a line of soft cotton towels and muslin washcloths.

The Hooded Towel and Muslin Washcloth Set is awesome and really exceeded my expectations. The Hooded Towel is quite large. It covers my 2.75 year old son with plenty of room to spare. In fact, I didn’t realize he’d outgrown his other hooded towels until we used the aden + anais towel. Made of 100% cotton, the towel is not super thick, but it is soft and my husband says it “feels like a robe in a fancy hotel.”

Now, the Muslin Washcloth is, in a word, enormous. And, that’s a good thing. It’s seriously the size of (or bigger than) a typical adult washcloth. It’s made of muslin and feels noticeably different from other washcloths. True to the claims about muslin, it definitely feels like a breathable fabric. It also feels layered for thickness and softness. The material also has a cute pattern (ours is orange fish) that coordinates with plain trim on the towel.
To Buy… The Hooded Towel and Muslin Washcloth Set is a great buy. The large size ensures you can use it for a while. The design is simple and the cotton is soft to your little one’s skin.

Or Not to Buy… The color section is limited and, while I like the simple design, it’s almost too plain. It’s be neat to incorporate the pattern from the washcloth on the towel or offer more color choices. (But I do love that the gender neutral color is a bright orange rather than a drab yellow or green.)

Shop! aden + anais Hooded Towel and Muslin Washcloth Set is $29.95 and comes in pink, blue and orange.

Thank you to aden + anais for providing a sample product for the purposes of this review. The opinions expressed in this review are mine and others may have a different experience.
