BabyScholars Review and Giveaway

As soon as I saw this adorable Crayon Apron at BabyScholars I fell in love with it. It was something I had not seen before, making it a perfect gift idea, in my opinion, for little girls. I absolutely love finding unique items like this apron to give as presents, and of course I usually need one for my house as well.

The apron arrived as charming as I imagined it would be. A box of washable crayons are included, Crayola brand so you know you can trust the washableness. Both the apron and crayons are packaged in its own ~very cute~ box which would make wrapping it for a present easy.

The minute it arrived both my three year old daughter Providence and myself wanted to put all the crayons in the pockets so it could be tried on to color in. We of course had to indulge, Providence even happened to still be wearing her new Easter dress that she had tried on earlier in the morning, and the apron matched perfectly.

The pockets run along the bottom of the apron, and were difficult for Providence to fit the crayons in because the pockets are quite small to keep the crayons upright. So I helped Providence with the initial set up since she was having a difficult time. I think she can learn to do it, but little pockets and chubby little fingers usually don’t go well together.

Also the apron itself was a little smaller then I had thought it would be, it still looks great and does tie in the back, but tying a bow does not leave the pretty tails so I found it’s easier to just tie it in a knot. Mind you though, my daughter is on the large size for her age. She is having a lot of fun coloring with her apron on, and looks perfectly delightful doing so.


I was so impressed with how fast the shipping was from BabyScholars and quick to respond to emails also. BabyScholars has a large selection of fun, interesting, and cute toys. The site makes it easy to find things, with departments to browse through or ways you can shop by, such as by brand or by age. There is also a search box if you are looking for something particular.



Some of my favorites I found while browsing were the little princess plush playset,

the ballerina tin keepsake box,

and the chalkboard briefcase,


additionally they offer free ground shipping on all orders over $99.



BabyScholars is sponsoring a $100 shopping spree giveaway for one of our readers.
