Yorkshire based company Ollie and Leila are a British manufacturer of luxury childrens’ furniture specialising in personalised beds. However, they also offer some other wonderful products and they recently contacted me to see if Toby would like to review one of their Snuggle Sacs.
Jamie and I had been looking at some portable sleeping solutions for a while as we’re off skiing in February and we’re a little bit concerned that Toby might be a little unsettled away from home, so this couldn’t have come at a more perfect time!
When the Snuggle Sac arrived I was pleasantly surprised that it came with its own carry bag and an absolute gem it is too. I’ve had experience with a few roll up beds and they’ve all been a struggle to get back into any kind of storage, but this bag tops it. It’s totally roomy and the Snuggle Sac fits in with ease and with room to spare. It has two carry handles and the whole thing together is very lightweight and perfect for travel or storage!
Once we got the Snuggle Sac out and unrolled it my first thought was “oh my goodness, it’s huge”. I guess I was kind of expecting it to be “junior bed” sized and actually it would very easily fit on a single bed, possibly with the pirate feet hanging over the edge too. It’s actually really hard to get the whole Snuggle Sac in one picture! I think the only way for me to give you a good overview is to work from top to bottom.
The material inside is 100% cotton lining and is lovely and soft, and it’s super fleecy on the outside. There is space right at the top, around the head area, to pop in any kind of pillow. I was surprised as, maybe naively, I thought it had some kind of stuffing or pillow included. It absolutely does not affect my thoughts on the overall product, but it’s definitely something to consider when buying and/or travelling with it.
The Snuggle Sac has a chunky zip which goes a small way down to allow your child to do it themselves; it doesn’t fully open up like a sleeping bag would. Still, it’s unbelievably roomy and I think even I would fit in it given how long it is (I haven’t tried yet as Toby wouldn’t let me!). I love that it doesn’t come all the way undone as I think that’s when it gets easier to kick the covers off, and you can’t with this. It’s reassuring to know that wherever they go they’ll be snug, warm and comfortable.
The Snuggle Sac was designed and developed to help children feel more comfortable, secure and cosy wherever they are. I think by using this at home ahead of a holiday, or a sleepover at the grandparents house, it gives them a sense of familiarity which is why this is (hopefully) going to be instrumental in Toby’s routine when we’re away skiing.
