Sasha's Kiddie Products Review and Giveaway

I live in a part of the country known for its high winds and warm sun. I have had an incredibly difficult time finding a stroller cover that not only offers my son shade, but also is not knocked off by a gust of wind. So, I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to try the Standard Single Stroller Sun and Wind Cover from Sasha’s Kiddie Products.

I bought a stroller cover from another manufacturer a few months ago and had a horrible time getting it attached, and even once attached it did not offer full coverage for the stroller. With the Sasha’s cover I was able to fit it to my stroller in a matter of seconds. A Velcro strip held it securely in place, so I never once had to worry about the wind knocking it off. My son was shielded on all sides, and was still able to see out to enjoy the scenery.


Here's how they describe the unique features of this product: 
Our sun shades offer approximately  70% protection from the Sun's Cancer Causing UVA/UVB Rays, Heat, Glare, Wind, Dust and Debris and Flying Insects. We have been schooled to believe that higher percentages are better than lower ones. This is not the case when deciding to by a sun cover for a baby.  This is because the higher percentage of protection means the more the material is more opaque and therefore limits breathing (ventilation) and eliminates the see-through feature of the product. Parents, when going outdoors for a stroll with their babies,  do not want to have to stop every five minutes to look underneath a solid material to see if their babies are OK. And what good is taking a baby for a stroll if they can't see anything?
The image above is a picture taken from underneath the sun shade. It shows that visibility is not negatively affected by the shade. 

In fact, the creator was inspired to create these products after watching a mother use a blanket to shield a child from the sun on a very hot day. You can read about what inspired this product by checking out the About Us page on their website. They have been innovators in the field of sun shade accessories for over a decade, often working with companies to insure a quality fit custom tailored to their brand of stroller.


I was very impressed by the quality of the product. I always try a product out on myself before I try it with my son. I tested the material for breathability and visibility. I liked that I was able to see through the cover to check on my son. My little one was able to enjoy the view on our walk, and I didn’t have to stop every five minutes to check on him. I was very impressed with the fit of the cover. I use an Eddie Bauer travel system stroller and their standard single stroller cover fit perfectly.

Here’s what they say about their products:
Sasha's Sun and Wind Covers are products designed for parents to use to protect their baby's/child's delicate eyes, skin and body from the harmful effects of the sun's heat, glare, cancer causing ultraviolet UVA/UVB rays, wind, dust, debris, and flying insects. They are water resistant and flame retardant. They are unique in that they protect, yet still allow parents to see in and children to see out at all times.

Sasha’s Kiddie Products offers a huge line of accessories for strollers, car seats, bassinets, joggers and bike trailers. They also offer heavy duty winter covers, travel bags, organizer bags, gate check bags, stroller theft-proof locks, parasols, and car window shades. There really is something for everyone. One of my favorite features of Sasha’s is their ability to provide stroller covers custom designed to fit particular stroller brands.

I would definitely recommend this product to my mommy friends. Rating 5/5.

You can check out their website to hear what other parents have to say about their products.

They also offer gift certificates on their websites. This would make a wonderful gift for moms-to-be. They can select a stroller cover or accessory perfectly suited to their needs.

Thanks to the generosity of the folks at Sasha’s Kiddie Products one of my readers will have the opportunity to win a $25 gift certificate to their website. There are tons of fantastic things to choose from!
