Review: crochted pals & hats for your little one


About a month ago I saw an adorable little pirate Teddy bear on my Instagram feed and knew I had to get it for my sister who is having a baby in early March. I also asked Rachell, the owner of Gibson Baby, if she could make a hat to match.

I figured the hat would be red and white striped, nothing fancy, but when Rachell sent me the preview of the hat and pal together I was floored! How cute is the one eyed pirate hat?

I knew that If I didn’t buy a second set, my sister would never get the original one intended for her son.


The quality is excellent! I love how sturdy the cotton is. I have ordered a lot of handmade hats now and this set is one of my favorites. The price isn’t bad either. The set was only $32. Sure you might be able to get a stuffed toy and hat from Target for less, but by purchasing from Gibson Baby you are supporting a small business and the items you purchase will be keepsakes for your child.

Atticus hasn’t found his hands yet so his little pal is still waiting to be played with. His hat however has already been worn and gets compliments everywhere we go! It is just adorable!

Rachell is super easy to work with and
if you aren’t on Instagram already, check out @Gibsonbaby or Rachell has also been kind enough to give our readers a 15% off discount on all orders for the month of February! just use code tmd15.

    I ordered Harper a giraffe hat and toy wayyyyyy before she was born and I love them! I ordered a hat that was a little too big or my itty bitty’s head is too small so either way she has yet to wear it lol. I am sure once it fits it will be adorable. I love the quality also and love even more supporting a business owner 🙂
