As promised, another review, this time of my Jumpin jammerz (Jumpin Jammerz - One piece footed pajamas for adults pre teens, and teenagers) which came on Monday. Got the chance to wear one to bed last night . I got 2 different ones, one with starz (seems appropriate for a sleeper :P), and a mushroom patterned one, which was on clearance . Again I've spoilered the pictures so it looks tidier. Also I will be comparing this directly with my All In One company Sleeper (All in one sleepsuits by the all in one company)
The website has a large choice of designs and materials. Both of mine are polar fleece ones, with the starz design being slightly thicker, about as thick as the all in one. The mushroom one is thinner, but it is also a discontinued product and probably from an old batch. I wish I had been a little bit smarter and gone for one of the lighter materials, these are great in winter but come summer time I will be roasting :P. The designs are pretty cool, and they do have a few childish ones (still no teddy ones!!!!) for example the duckies one. I went for the starz one because I love the look of it and the dark blue. The mushroom one is probably the more childish of the two, the cartoon look of the shrooms really adding to it, and again the lighter blue is a great colour .
These seem pretty well made apart from a couple of small faults, which I put down to them being mass produced (well compared to the made to order ones from all in one company). I love the way the zippers go down past the crotch and almost to the knee of the left leg, which seems a bit more childish (the All in one company does a full length one now :X). And the way the zipper is covered with a flap of material, a gripe I had with the all in ones.
Another difference to the All in ones is the lack of elastic cuffs on the wrist opening and round the ankles, a better choice in my opinion, again it makes it look more like a children's sleeper. Also the lack of a seam up the back is great, you can feel it on the all in one, and it can be a little irritating. The fit is a little smaller then my All in one, but it still fits great with plenty of room so you don't get strangled when moving about in your sleep. Lastly there's the price these are a lot cheaper then the all in one company. Mine came to £87.79 including shipping ($40). That's £10 more then the other company, but with an extra sleeper (ok it was on clearance but still), and shipping from the states. And they ship quickly as well. I ordered mine on the 26th of December and it arrived on the 4th of January which was great considering new years being in the way. This was about as quick as the all in one company who take a week or so to make the sleeper for you.
As mentioned above the quality isn't quite as good as the all in one company. But they are cheaper, and the materials used are the same. One thing I did notice when I woke up this morning was a small hole where the zipper meets the material.
I can repair it but it's annoying all the same. There's also little bits of loose thread on the inside of them. Not a major issue that shouldn't put you off.
Another issue is with the feet, they're just a little bit too small. I can fit my feet in fine but I can feel the seams which is a bit of an annoyance. The all in one company's sleeper have massive feet, in terms of width and general roominess, these seem to be at the limit for my size 12's. Also no grippy stuff on the bottom, might not be an issue for some, just watch out for those polished floors.
Lastly, and it is a small point, is the lack of customisability on the site. All in one company allows you to choose all sorts of added extras, hoods, feet or no feet (stupid question), mittens, pockets, drop seat. Plus you can choose up to six separate colours/designs on one sleeper. But then if you like a pattern on jumpin jammerz then who cares about the extras :P.
So to round up. They are great, and very good value for money, as long as you can find a good design you like. I would choose these over the all in one company, because they are only a little worse in terms of quality, but a lot cheaper in terms of price.
Feel free to add your thoughts on these, since I know they are popular amongst us big kids .
