Baggers Originals - review and Giveaway

I just loved watching Angela and Jessica's story on Dragon's Den in February. The mother and daughter team (from the North East) managed to secure a £100,000 deal in the den and I'm sure are now a huge inspiration to women across our region.


Angela was first inspired to create Baggers 21 years ago to keep her then 5 year old daughter Jessica clean and dry in the rain. The design evolved and the first rainwear to be carried in it's own attached bag was born. Baggers were a huge success - sadly too successful for Angela to keep up with orders and sadly the business had to close. Not to worry though as now 21 years later the company has been resurrected and baggers originals have gone from strength to strength (you can read more about their story here).

We were sent some baggers originals rainwear to put through their paces and we were hugely impressed. The outfits are very lightweight and roomy so I was surprised when they kept my children completely clean and dry during a rather wet trip to the park.






I think the pictures really speak for themselves. The rainwear was completely waterproof, roomy and fun. They are so easy to pack into their attached bag when we were finished (see this video for a quick demonstration) and are nice and compact which means they can easily be stored in the back of our car and used when needed. They are perfect not only to keep your children dry (and let them jump in muddy puddles to their hearts content) but what I found particularly useful was that they kept their clothes completely clean. 

Playing in the park can be a bit messy at times and nobody wants to be the parent who is telling their children to be careful. Baggers Originals provide the solution meaning if you are going out somewhere after the park or a walk on the beach, you don't need to worry about keeping their outfits in perfect condition - just pop a baggers originals over the top.

A Baggers Originals raincoat and waterproof trousers set can be purchased online here for the bargain price of £22.99-£24.99. They are sized to last two years so very good value. The lovely people at Baggers Originals have also given us a set to giveaway - simply enter using the rafflecopter giveaway below. Good luck!

1st Prize - One set of Baggers Originals rainwear in the colour/size of the winner's choice up to the value of £24.99. Prize must be claimed within 6 months. UK entry only.

    My twins live very near a lovely country park, but it's always so muddy and I'm reluctant to cope with the wet and mess involved in the walk. This prize would keep one lovely and dry and I'd buy another one for the other.

So there's been tons to organise (schools, doctors and dentists, etc) and even more to buy - these items will really help us make sure they've got everything they need. Thank you so much!
