Kid Bean Review and GIVEAWAY



I am so excited to tell you about an amazing company I recently found, Kid Bean. Take one look at their mission statement and you will know that they aren't fooling around. Many of the products that they sell are made in the US and they are earth-friendly, labor-friendly and vegan. YEAH My kinda place.

"KidBean.com was founded to make a difference in the world by educating people about the health, environmental, and social benefits of sustainably-produced, fair-labor, vegan products for babies and children. We believe consumers will choose such products when presented with appropriate information about their benefits and we strive to make as many of these products available in one place to make conscious consumerism more convenient and affordable. We offer products made with recycled content and/or natural, organic materials. For environmental, ethical, and economic reasons, all products are always animal-free and most are made in the USA. We do all the research and present the results in an easy-to-follow manner so customers may shop with confidence knowing that all products at KidBean.com are the very best earth-friendly, labor-friendly, vegan options on the market."


I have Kid Bean to thank for keeping me and my family warm this winter. They recently sent us Queen Size and Crib Size blankets to review. They are made by Organics-N-More right here in the US! They are made of unbleached organic cotton and they are the prettiest cream color. They compliment my BedVoyage sheets perfectly! Look at how nice the Queen Size (90x90) looks on my bed:


The blanket at first seemed thin but I shouldn't have let that influence me. It sure is warm! The loom-weave makes it very tough/durable. Now I know what they mean when they call it heirloom quality. I washed it once in my EcoStore USA laundry liquid (mild and all natural) so it would bring out the natural softness of the blanket. That is exactly what it did. I am so glad to have such a high-quality organic blanket because when you don't sleep with toxins, you will wake up a better person. I am convinced of this.

Dexter also really likes his new blankie. He still sleeps in a crib but I decided that the first step to getting him into a big boy bed would be to make up his crib as though it was a bed. Sheets, blanket and all tucked in the sides. He seems to sleep so soundly tucked in like a little prince. I would take a picture of it but it doesn't do the blanket any justice. His crib is a distraction. Just imagine the cutest little boy in the world tucked into the same blanket that was on my bed :)

Kid Bean not only sells bedding but they also sell body care products, kids clothing and much much more. Check them out for yourselves. You will be glad you did!

I am thrilled to give away one queen size Organics-N-More Organic Blanket compliments of Kid Bean. Please just visit Kid Bean and tell me which weave you would like on the blanket if you were to win. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you are to win!
