We could all use a little extra comfort right now, and that includes our kids. It's really heartening to see all my friends post photos snuggled up with their babes and preschoolers right now, but sometimes, you need an extra hug and some warmth when Mom and Dad aren't around. And that's the beauty of Cubcoats.
These ingenious little friends are both stuffed animals and cozy hoodies! I first spotted them in Chapters new arrivals section, but it turns out you can also occasionally find these inventions over at Amazon Canada. At Chapters, though, each one sells for $39.99, which is easily one of the best prices out there.
So how exactly do they work? You pretty much just unzip the back of your plush friend and unfold until a hoodie appears! This is honestly the best kind of magic trick, especially since these stuffed animals are fully machine-washable. They can also save you a little space on plane or car trips, since you won't need to pack both things. And even when your little one grows out of the hoodie, they'll have a stuffie forever!
There are a few different toddler-sized styles and designs available, including the pink Kali Kitty, along with a fox, panda and pup. At Chapters, shipping is FREE with no minimum spend from now until the end of the month, but that's not the only place you can find these handy little critters right now.
For all your kiddos who really miss playing and watching sports, I have a surprise. Sport Chek sells team Cubcoats that feature logos for the Calgary Flames, Winnipeg Jets and more! Not every single NHL team is available (sorry, Ottawa fans), but almost every single jersey-inspired friend is on sale for $41.97 from $69.99. The only exception is their Toronto Raptors Cubcoat, which is marked down to $51.97. Orders ship free.
