Agoo Apparel Leggings Review and Giveaway!

Agoo leggings come in lots of adorable and vibrant patterns!
My obsession with baby leggings started the summer of 2008 in the midst of a three day music festival in the Canadian Rockies. My friend and I had hitched a ride into town from the festival grounds for breakfast. Standing in line at the coffee shop we`d chosen was an incredibly attractive granola-looking dad holding THE most adorable baby I had ever seen. The baby was wearing a Flaming Lips onsie and a bright blue pair of leggings to match. My head just about exploded of cute.

This was more than a year before my son, Oliver, was born, and to be completely honest, my husband and I were still `just friends`, so to say that Oliver hadn`t even been thought of at that point is an understatement. But even though he hadn`t been thought of I knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that when I had babies they would wear leggings all day, every day, all the time, no matter the season. Flash forward to September 2009, Oliver was born and I kept my promise to myself, he wears leggings and my gosh is he ever darling!


So when Agoo Apparel sent me their new leggings to review, I knew I would love them! The question wouldn`t be whether or not I would recommend leggings to other parents, it would be about what set Agoo leggings apart from other brands.
Oh wow! They`re bamboo!


The thing that caught my eye and most definitely sets these leggings apart, is that they are made from bamboo! Bamboo has so many natural qualities that make it perfect for this type of garment.
  • It`s antibacterial 
  • It sheds moisture
  • It`s breathable
  • It`s odor resistant
These natural qualities make bamboo leggings perfect for parents who practice Elimination Communication. These leggings won`t pick up bacteria from the potty seat, will stand up to a small miss or splash-back, and keep your child`s legs comfortable during diaper free time! Bamboo fibers are also much softer than traditional cotton, I could feel the difference immediately and unlike our other cotton leggings, these did not leave any marks around my son`s thighs.

The lack of irritation from the bands of the leggings could also be because Agoo leggings seem to be made to fit a larger age range then other brands. Our other leggings still fit Oliver, but he is quite tall and the gap of thigh poking out the top of the leggings is definitely getting bigger. Agoo leggings are longer then the other brands we own, and the bands that keep them secure around the ankles and thighs seem to be quite a bit more flexible. I have no doubt that they will still fit securely on the tiny legs of an infant, but they will also fit comfortably all the way into toddler and childhood!

Cute, comfortable & durable, they`re made for play!
I also noticed that they didn`t pill as badly in the wash as other leggings. I live in an apartment building where the washing facilities leave much to be desired. Washing things on delicate in these machines just isn`t really an option if you want to get them clean within your allotted time limit, so imagine my delight when these beautiful leggings came out of the wash looking every bit as vibrant and new as they looked going in! They held their shape, their colour, and didn`t shrink a bit, which makes me confident that they will survive Oliver`s toddler years and maybe even get passed down to his younger siblings when we have them.

If you`re not convinced that bamboo fibers are enough to make such a big difference in a pair of leggings, also note that bamboo fiber is an environmentally sustainable choice! The cultivation of bamboo requires little irrigation and no pesticides, and it grows at such a rapid rate in a variety of climates that it is readily available to growing demand. Products made from bamboo are biodegradable and non-toxic!

To top all that off, these leggings are just plain cute! They`re adorable! They come in so many colours and patterns that I have no doubt there is a pair to match every occasion, and every child! So you`ll probably want a pair for your little one.

That`s why Agoo Apparel is giving away a pair of these to one of our Connected Mom readers! AND after you enter to win your own pair, you can go to The Connected Mom Facebook page, or see the Agoo Apparel advertisement on the right hand side of this page to find a 70% off discount code!
