ASDA Direct Baby & Toddler Event (Feat. Moses Basket & Bouncer Review)

When ASDA approached me out of the blue with regards to their blogger campaign to coincide with their newest Baby and Toddler Event, online now or launching in-store on Easter Monday (21st April 2014) ... well, I couldn't believe my luck.
Teddy in the Park Moses Basket Review ASDA
Teddy in the Park Moses Basket

I had my beady little eye on their event anyway - my sister has recently found out she's expecting so we were planning on grabbing a few bargains, as is to be expected with ASDA in general.

For the purpose of reviewing, I was offered a variety of items to test out, if I was up for it. 
Ummm... OF COURSE I WAS! Here are my choices and what I thought of them too...

Moses Basket
Yes, I realise that 37 weeks is a little late to be leaving the moses basket until, however having said that I did have a very pretty jungle themed pre-loved one given to me to utilise for baby's arrival. 

Loving the range that ASDA have to offer, I couldn't resist the beautifully neutral Teddy in the Park Moses Basket. I have a 'thing' for neutral colours, despite being fully aware that I am expecting a boy any day now. 

The design of the baskets' blanket alongside the creams and browns that go so well with the palm basket, just made this choice a no brainer. 

The hood is functional as to YOUR needs i.e. you can adjust it accordingly by tightening the plastic screws at the side. This is not a feature that my pre-loved basket, or Carson's basket years ago, had. So I like that the hood can be angled and positioned as and when. 
The basket is strong, sturdy, and simply beautiful.

Please note that it doesn't come with a stand or rocker, but for just £25 who can whinge at that?! It's one of the most cost effective moses baskets I've seen full stop. And that's comparing it to plain baskets at that.

I cannot wait for baby to sleep soundly in this. It is a stunning addition to any room and I have no qualms about hauling the basket between bedroom and living room on a daily basis. 

Baby Bouncer from Mamas & Papas
I fell in love with the first one I saw, the Mamas & Papas Capella Cradle - Stars. How pretty is this, please? Again, in a neutral grey/white. Won't look out of place in my red living room! Ooooh it's one that plays music too! Not just music, four lullabies and a gentle vibration function too.

Upon setting up (which only took approximately 10 minutes by the way!) I realise that the colour is more taupe than grey. A browny greyish tone. Even my pictures don't show you all that well so it's certainly only a slight difference. Anyway, regardless, it's lovely and I'm not complaining - so I'll shut up!

The baby 'cushioning' can be removed once your little mite is more active than at the newborn stage, it will give him/her more room to play with the toy rail too (also detachable)

For up to 6 months use, this will only set you back a very competitive £46 in the ASDA baby and toddler event. Very much worth it for a strong, reputable branded and practical item - which, again the same as the moses basket, looks exceptionally swish and stylish in any room of your house.

Mamas & Papas Capella Cradle - Stars.

Have you picked anything up from ASDA Direct and the Baby & Toddler Event yet? There are LOADS of baby products available - what bargains have you grabbed?

I'd love to hear your opinions :-)

Love, Carsonsmummy xx

DISCLAIMER: I was sent the above 2 items free of charge for the purposes of reviewing on behalf of ASDA. All opinions are my own - open and honest as always - and I was not paid for this post.
