Review - Keppeke bollekes (polka dots)

Bollekes is a 100% cotton with a heavy, dense texture. Quite stiff out of the bag and still assertive after a wash, this has taken a little bit of wrestling but is proving to break in to toddler-worthiness. 

There's no wrong side to this wrap and it's an awesome neutral if you want a wrap that won't dominate your outfit but still has some pattern and texture. My husband has asked "Can I wear that?" and said "gee, this feels nice", bouncing up and down for effect! 

The large scale pattern isn't as grippy as cubes and passes slide nicely. I'm confident that with further wear this will become much floppier but I wouldn't say it's an ideal squish wrap. The weave is very dense and I found it supportive with 24lbs of bouncing, squealing toddler and a pug being towed along :)

I love the clean, unfussy design and the cross-gender appeal. I'll be watching Keppeke to see what they come up with next!

  7. I love both dots and cubes! Don't know which I would choose but I do love the neutralness of the dots. I hope I have a difficult decision to make soon! Haha :)

  9. Oh, the coral cube one is beautiful BUT I would love the polka dots one for two reasons. One, I would have something in neutral colours that would go with everything and two, then I can try and get my hubby into baby wrapping too as we cannot afford a structured carrier and he is a manly man so would only wear manly colours.

  14. I'd love to win this one because although i love love love the color of the other one i only have boys so I would just feel sorry for them putting them in that one haha ... But with this one I get to have the perfect mix of girlyness with the polka dots but they can be safe in the neutral color

  19. I would definitely take the dots - I think the cubes would flush the color from my face! You sure rock both of them! Cute puppy!

  20. I prefer this pattern and cush, but might like the thinness of the cubes. Tough choice!

  21. I'd be happy with either wrap. ;) But I've already got a coral wrap, so these polka dots might be a better match for me & my toddler.

  32. This is a lovely neutral wrap. Which is something I don't have, sporting my first wrap (Inka!) Its hard to choose between them, they're both so unique. Are there any differences in weight with this and the cubes? What is its /m2 ?

    :)
