Babywearing is not only an amazing parenting tool, but can also be such a gift to a child. It’s no surprise that when we wear our little ones they soon want to mimic us and wear their babies too. My own children have even been seen wearing dolls and stuffed animals inside of shirts. It’s simply adorable. Since my first was born, babywearing has really made a boom, including the addition of mini-carriers and doll-carriers. They come in many styles with all sorts of features, but today I would love to introduce you to an adorable little buckle carrier by Red Charlotte.
The Red Charlotte doll carrier resembles a Mei Tai carrier with the ease of buckles for little ones. The first thing that struck me about this carrier was the obvious time and care put into it. The patterns are fun and fresh and the stitching is obviously cared for. I have to admit that when I first opened it up I was a little concerned by the buckle size, but as soon as my daughter grabbed them and beamed a beautiful smile because she buckled it herself I completely understood – these buckles are perfect for little hands!
In addition to the kid-sized buckles, Red Charlotte doll carriers also feature an inside band that helps hold dolls and other toys in place, which helps cut down on frustration when getting the carrier on. I should mention also that this carrier does allow for a wide range of doll sizes because of the adjustable straps!
Not only are these carriers beautiful, but they are well thought out for little hearts and minds. Being able to buckle and unbuckle the carrier by themselves, and toss on the carrier without their dolls falling out, helps foster independence and gives them a sense of accomplishment. As much as I love my children relying on me, there is something that goes straight to my heart when I see the pride in their faces over being able to accomplish a task themselves, just like Mommy 🙂
These fashionable and functional carriers are a great gift for any child, and to help you with that Red Charlotte is giving all of you 10% off at their shop with the code EFFBLOG10 (valid through Dec 14th for holiday shipping.)
