When I first saw Wubbanubs, I thought they were a crazy bad idea. Somewhere along the way I found my Amazon-addicted self reading reviews of them. Now we have one and love it.
Okay, I thought this was a beanie baby with a pacifier attached. Not so much. They aren't really that heavy or big. We have the lamb, and it is very lightweight. You can see in the photo below that even if I put the paci in backwards so the lamb is over his face and nose, he is still perfectly fine. It compares more to a pacifier ribbon in weight than to a beanie baby.
The Wubbanub helps keep the pacifier from falling, just because it is easy to hang on to. Also, if it does fall, the pacifier doesn't go bouncing across the room and under the coffee table. Isaac is just learning to hold on to things, and its super cute to see him snuggling his little lamb!
The lamb smelled a bit "new" at first so I put the whole thing through the wash. I used the delicate cycle and air dried it; it turned out fine. We've had several people comment about how cute the Wubbanub is and what a great idea it is. The only problem is that there are so many adorable ones to choose from!
Isaac likes his Wubbanub lamby!
We received the Wubbanub for review. All opinions are my own of course (and Isaac's). :)
