A few weeks ago I shared my thoughts on a JJ Cole diaper bag and today I am excited to feature another awesome JJ Cole Collections product. I absolutely love the modern style and design in every JJ Cole product as well as the bright vibrant colors. These products are definitely made for the busy lifestyle of todays parents and each product I have tried has not only fit seamlessly into my life, but also made my life easier!
We live in Ohio which means chilly autumns and freezing winters. Basically Mama Harper would be much happier somewhere further south, but that’s a whole other story. And so to deal with these frigid cold months I needed a way to keep my Willow Jean nice and cozy while out and about. Thank goodness for the JJ Cole Bundleme Collection! There are quite a few different Bundleme’s to choose from – we received the Urban Bundleme.
The Urban Bundleme is available in two size (infant & toddler) as well as seven vibrant colors (ice, nordic blue, plumberry, sassy, soho, sprout, & stealth). They are designed to fit on regular strollers as well as joggers plus the infant size will fit on an infant car seat. I choose to only use the Bundleme on our stroller, but for that it is absolutely perfect for us.
There are so many things I love about the Urban Bundleme. First of all it is super easy to put on the stroller – simply stretch the elastic band over the back of the seat and slide the harness straps through the back, velcro, done! The quilted outer nylon is not only stylish with the bright vibrant colors and sewn in pattern, but it also protects my little bundle of joy from the wind and rain. The inside is made of super soft thermaplush which keeps Willow nice and toasty warm. When riding in her stroller the Urban Bundleme basically becomes her “coat” – so all we need is a hat and we’re ready to go. And no worries about getting too hot either because the top can be unzipped and easily removed making this ideal for going in and out all the time. There is also a handy dandy pocket which is great for holding small things like pacifiers and I love that I can leave it on the stroller when I fold it down. The Urban Bundleme has pretty much become part of my stroller for the winter months.
Now I mentioned earlier that we choose to only use the Bundleme on our stroller and I want to tell you why. I refuse to put anything besides a thin layer of clothing between Willow and the harness of her car seat – though the Bundleme does not interfere with the straps on the front of her body it does go behind her body. It has undergone and passed the FMVSS-213 test. These tests performed on car seats with the products installed found that the car seats complied with the Restraint System Integrity and Occupant Excursion portions of the FMVSS-213 requirements. However, just because it has passed these tests does not mean it would not void the car seat warranty if an accident were to occur which is a risk I am not willing to take. There is a way to alter the Bundleme so that it does not go behind your child and doing so I would feel ok using it in an infant car seat, but instead we use it on the stroller as is. JJ Cole does offer the Car Seat Cover which simply goes over top of the car seat and doesn’t come in contact with the harness at all – I would love to get this for Willow!
So in a nutshell – LOVE LOVE LOVE the Urban Bundleme for use on strollers and will definitely be getting the toddler size once Willow outgrows the infant Bundleme. It keeps her warm and toasty while looking stylish too. Be sure to check out the JJ Cole Collections website to see all the different colors and other great products they have to offer too.
