I’ve always followed the Cuddledry ladies with interest. I remember watching the episode of Dragon’s Den back in 2007 when two mums, Helen and Polly, pitched their unique baby towel to the panel of investors. They did really well, had several offers of the money they were looking for, but all wanting much larger shares of the business than had been offered (as is the Dragons’ way), and the two ladies turned the offers down and went on their way.
At this point my husband and I turned to each other and rather smugly commented that they should have taken the money. And thought no more of it.
After the geekdaughter was born, we suddenly saw the use and the real value of the Cuddledry towel*. I bought one for the geekdaddy, who was in charge of baths, and he loved it. He commented that having the towel wrap underneath her made him much more confident getting her out of the bath. We’ve still got that towel, and are enjoying using it with the geekson all over again (although it’s lost a little of its original softness after many washings).
The geekdaughter eventually graduated to the toddler towel*, in which she looked incredibly cute, but she grew out of that too, and is now into standard bath towels. We do find getting her hair dry after a bath quite a challenge (she won’t let me anywhere near her with a hairdryer), and so I was very interested when I heard about the latest addition to the Cuddledry range – the Cuddletwist*. It’s a hair towel, specially shaped to be easy to wrap your children’s hair in to dry. I was delighted to be offered the chance to test one.
So how did we get on?
In summary it’s a great product, it works really well, and it’s simple enough that even the geekdaddy can use it! We wrapped the geekdaughter’s hair in it after her bath and her hair was noticeably drier when it came to bedtime than it has been in the past with a standard towel. We’ll definitely be using the cuddletwist after every hair wash now.
