Product Review: Olie-The Minkey

“Where are your gloves?”
“Put your hat back on!”
“Quit swinging your scarf around like a helicopter!”
“No, you can’t take your gloves off”
“You’re going to freeze”

If that sounds like your day-to-day during winter months, keep reading… if not, then you’re blessed but keep reading anyways because this product is a god-send.

We ran across Olie scouring the Internet for our typical “useful, ethical, helpful products” and I couldn’t be more excited.

Christina (the founder) was nice enough to send us a wide array of clothing from her super cute shop to review. With winter approaching, I personally was very interested in her innovative, one of a kind product The Minkey.

The Minkey is exactly what I hoped it would be and is exactly as advertised. It is seriously a hat, gloves, and a scarf in 1 fantastic little bundle. It’s soft, it’s warm and it’s absolutely adorable! Best thing of all is it is not bulky so that you can still put a coat on over it and your child can still move around freely.

C has a green Dino Minkey so not only is he warm and snuggly, he looks absolutely adorable. I would have a picture but he wouldn’t stop running around screaming “rawr” long enough for me to snag one.

Quality wise, The Minkey (and all other clothes included) are fantastically made. Fabric quality is top-notch and so is design! The stitching quality is great as well. I have had no problems with seams coming undone or Dino spots or spikes tearing or coming off.

Price wise, you’re looking at $25-30 dollars depending on the design but let me tell you it is absolutely worth it!

My one and only con is the face area seems really tight. I understand the reasoning but I would recommend maybe an adjustable velcro tab on the chin to allow for a looser fit. C had a brief freak-out session about this.

I would absolutely have to give a 5 out of 5 and it is a must-have for any parent!
