The pictures were very cute. I also liked the tagline of Healthy, Happy and Bright. The pump was very well made and of high quality. The wash was a nice light blue, clear colour. It had a nice scent to it. It came out of the pump really well. It worked really well. The skin and hair was so clean. I am a big fan of combined shampoo and body wash products as you don’t have to use two products, it’s all in one. An excellent product.”

“These nappies [tooshies ECO Nappies with Organic Bamboo] are very soft and I love the cute pattern. I will admit though I was very skeptical at first about how much they would hold, because of how thin they seemed. To my suprise and relief they seem to work well, and we haven’t had any of the leaks we experienced with other brands now that my 1-month old is sleeping longer stretches overnight (I cannot confirm their 12-hour claim is accurate, but they still seem to be going strong after 5-6 hours).”
