I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.
My love of Boba has been going strong for almost three years now. I started with a Boba 2G and have stayed with them as my favorite baby carrier ever since. Both my husband and I can use it with ease and our son, almost four, still loves going for piggyback rides. Because I love my Boba so much it hit me that I should see if Dub would like to wear one as much as he still loves to be in one.
A look at the Boba Mini:
The Boba Mini comes in a very cute, high quality mesh bag that you can use for storage and travel. This is such a great idea so the carrier doesn’t get ruined in the bottom of a toy box because let’s be honest, kids will just throw things wherever they feel like.
The Mini isn’t just a chintzy piece of shapeless fabric, it truly is a mini. From this angle you would never know that this is for a doll and not a real baby.
Of course it lacks some of the structural aspects of the full-sized Boba but that isn’t needed for a doll carrier.
The buckles are just smaller versions of the original. Very high quality which tells me that this carrier will last a long time and will be able to handle being played with frequently.
It even has a little pocket, just like the full-sized Boba.
We found the Boba Mini to be very easy to adjust for the perfect fit. You don’t get much cuter than this.
It was just as easy to wear as both a front and back carrier. Dub seemed to like to wear it best on his back, maybe because that’s how he’s used to being carried in his own Boba.
Dub is a very active kid who runs and climbs constantly and quickly moves from one activity to the next. He liked being able to carry his Elmo on his back without it getting in the way of other things.
We love the Boba Mini and are so impressed with the quality. I truly didn’t expect it to be as high quality as it is because it’s a toy but it really is so close to the real thing. I also love that there are so many color and print options so that boys can also have one that looks it belongs to a boy. So many toys that replicate caring for babies or playing house are pink or very girly so thank you Boba for taking little boys into consideration. My husband wears Dub just as much as I do so having his own Boba helps him to be like his daddy.
The Boba Mini is also very easy to clean. I chose the black carrier but we have a white cat which means it attracts cat hair like a magnet! A lint roller gets the cat hair and lint off it in just a few quick seconds.
