I was given the amazing opportunity to test out a product that isn’t even available to the public yet! Mapisart took my hometown and created a really great piece for my son…a baby onesie! It is the cutest!!
I love this onesie for a number of reasons. First it was delivered all wrapped up in a map! How is that for creative packaging!? Second it is really soft. The picture is nice a clear and made to look like a gorgeous watercolor of my city. I love that it isn’t an iron on looking product. This looks like the onesie is made of map material instead of just being printed on. I also really like the style of onesie. I like this it is crew neck onesie not an undershirt looking onesie. It is a high quality material and not a cheap see through onesie. I also LOVE the sleeve length. I wish more onesies had this length instead of the little short ones. The design is on the front and back, same design on both sides…the back just doesn’t have the words. Now the words are optional. You can chose what you want it to say or not say. I also love that it is a one of a kind. No one is going to have this same onesie!
Isn’t this such a fun and creative product?! My son wore it to my hubby’s work and everyone loved it. They were even looking closely at the map to see if they could figure out where their house is 🙂
The onesie Blake received is a 6-12 month. He is a chubby 7 1/2 month old baby in these pictures and there is PLENTY of room. The sizing is great…and can I just saw again how much I love the length on the sleeve. I have washed it several times and the colors don’t seem to fade at all. It looks brand new every time I pull it from the dryer. And! It didn’t shrink! I. AM. IMPRESSED! This really is a high quality product.
Now because this is a made for you product they print on it just for you. Because of this there is bound to be a few human errors….and that is totally expected. There are just a few spots on the onesie where the material was folded when they printing took place. This only happened under one arm and near one leg opening. This didn’t affect the wearability at all and really doesn’t even affect the look. In fact I would be really surprised if this didn’t happen somewhere on it. Afterall, the entire onsie is printed on, not just a small design on the front.
I think the only thing I would change about this is the lettering. It is a little wide so when Blake wears it you can’t read it very well. The ends of either side tend to fall into his armpits. I am sure that is an easy fix though. And like I said before word choice and whether it is there or not is an option and not required. Please note, this product has not launched yet (coming in April 2015) so things may change and be improved on before then.
I really like Mapisart and the idea of showing off your special place in the world! Check out Mapisart and be watching for the baby onesie to launch in April!
