A VB BASICS Giveaway {Win 100$ of Zutano} : CLOSED

November 18, 2015

Babies and Zutano bootiesI want to introduce you to a staple in my VB Basics “baby” wardrobe. Meet Zutano, a children’s clothing company located in the hills of my home state of Vermont. Their clothes are bold and bright, with versatile prints/patterns and are all made with the SOFTEST cotton. From preemie sizes all the way up to Toddler 4T, they have created clothing that is playful and fun yet very functional. The Zutano brand, its employees, and partners “firmly believe that we owe it to our children and our children’s children to inspire and engage the local and global community in a sustainable way that creates real and positive change”. They also have an acclaimed “Baby-to-Work” program that has been going on for a decade, in which their employees may bring their up to one year old babies to work with them. As a local Vermont business, Zutano certainly seems to be making an effort at home and worldwide to better our environment.


Let me tell you about why my family loves Zutano so much. Five years ago, I purchased a pair of their Cozie Baby Booties for our first child, and was instantly captivated by this great company. Jump forward to present day, and those same green fleece booties are in great condition, and are worn and well loved by my third baby boy. Zutano’s booties are my “go-to” baby gift, which I usually scoop up from Sprout Children’s Boutique, a local Virginia Beach business. The booties are toasty warm and actually STAY ON baby’s feet with the helpful snaps. I would like believe that every friend’s baby has a pair because of my recommendation – make sure you have the 6-12 month size, it’s the most practical size, I promise! (And how simply adorable is my oldest son with all his Virginia Beach baby buddies rocking their beloved booties in the photograph above? They were the runners up in a Zutano photo contest years ago).

 

As my boys have grown up, Zutano clothes in toddler sizes have filtered into their closets. The clothes are super comfortable for my active children, and the colors have never faded with all the use and MANY cycles in the washing machine! The boys LOVE the fun prints and I often have to dig through the laundry for the favorite Dino City print hoodie or search for the shorts with the “deep pockets” (quoting my 4 year old). Over the years we have come to adore their Spring, Summer and Fall lines, but as we move into the colder months here at the beach, their Cozie fleece is an absolute must-have to keep your kiddos warm. I’m especially digging their new collection of Warm Waffle Cozie, which I secretly wish they made in adult sizes…

Now on to the giveaway(s)…

    While everything Zutano offers is basically amazing, cozy, and fun…I live with two boys that could give Linus a run for his money with their obsession with cozy blankets to snuggle with, so I would love to stock up on either the cotton interlock or muslin blankets if I won.

    I love the Happy Camper romper; Wesley has been camping to VT already and loves his camping-themed nursery. The fleece booties are the ONLY thing that stays on his active, busy feet. Will be buying them again once he sizes out. The cozie waffle wrap looks great b/c they probably can’t rip it off lol.
