Review: Tekhni Olympus Sapphire

March 23, 2016 No Comments

Tekhni Olympus Sapphire, size 4

  • 55% cotton, 45% repreve
  • $$
  • machine woven
  • Support: AMAZING
  • Best for: Enough cush for a newborn, enough support for a toddler.
  • Carries: RUCK WORTHY

Did it dig? Not at all. Could hold Tot up in a ruck for hours and he’s no small thing. Right now he’s weighing in at 28 lb!

The moldability on this wrap was pretty in the middle. It was no ace bandage but it decently molded to your body. Not too bad. I think this had to do with the slight stretch that you get. Olympus is a pretty solid wrap, no sagging at all. It stretches a tiny bit with use, but I think of it more as bouncy than anything else. It springs back into shape, no problem.

(This wrap went through baseball games, hockey games and even a whole day at Disneyland!)

This was my workhorse wrap! It is the easiest wrap to wash, just throw it into the machine! Repreve doesn’t pick up color so I never really had to worry about the blue part of the wrap getting dirty. Oly doesn’t need any special maintenance at all. Repreve is amazing! The repreve in this wrap also made it quite breathable. It wasn’t too hot to wear over the summer at all.

(Check out those pleats!)

Grippy wrap! The pattern of Olympus made it so that you didn’t have to worry about the wrap becoming too slippery (biggest pet peeve, especially with a heavy toddler!). You don’t have to work too hard to get the passes going, but you don’t have to worry about crazy amounts of snag. Easy to tie a knot? Yes! Slip knots were nice and easy to tie and adjust. Not too sticky at all.

The best part of this wrap was the texture. The pattern of the wrap made it so that it was nicely textures. It didn’t feel like it was 3D or anything, but you could definitely feel the pattern in your hand. The drape on this wrap wasn’t too bad. It held its shape, but when broken in, it flopped nicely. It didn’t overly flop and lose shape.

Overall? I love this wrap. It wa nice and cushy when Tot was younger and it was extremely supportive when he got bigger and heavier. I had this wrap in a size 4, so base – 2 and it rocked as a shorty. It was my workhorse wrap. It rocked in a ruck. I would totally recommend this wrap to wrappers with bigger babies.

  • We pulled out our @appleblossomwovens Black Agate Tencel wrap for this chilly weather. It’s been cold and rainy, so the extra coziness of Tencel has been great. ⁣
Black Agate has been one of our favorite monochrome wraps ever. 🖤 It truly speaks to me. I can’t wait for Reflection to be released which is another monochrome wrap, with a kaleidoscope weave. Both white and black weft are speaking to me. M

  • Obsessing over @squeezamals this holiday season! The picnic pack was the cutest addition to our Squeezamals collection. Everything came for a perfect picnic lunch. ⁣
Dumpling loves the texture of the squish of the Squeezamals. She is always found with one in her hands. ⁣
If you’re interested in grabbing some for your littles, check out your local @walmart!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣
My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣
Thank you Kaliber Global Toys for this awesome gift! #sponsored #PowerYourFun #TurboTops @apexdropofficial
  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣
My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣
Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣
Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣
Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
