Sue Yellowtail is my new BFF and Crumb Cap Review

Sue Yellowtail is my new BFF!  Why? 

She invented the new Crumb Cap.  It’s a baby/toddler hair bib that prevents kids from smearing food in their hair while eating, which eliminates the sticky, gooey cleanup of mealtime!

If you have read any of my previous posts, you have likely seen pictures of my youngest, Sister, with some type of food smeared in her hair.  Bananas, oatmeal, cottage cheese, cake icing… lotion… you name it, she painted her tendrils with it.  While it was funny the first few times she did it, the hilarity soon wore off. 

This is what my angel’s locks can look like…

And here is the offending swipe with resulting MESS!

don don don don…  Sue Yellowtail and The Crumb Cap to the rescue!

I was so excited when I received the opportunity to review the Crumb Cap to see if it could help eliminate all that mealtime messiness.  I have to admit, I was a little concerned that Sister might not keep it on.  But, I figured the worst that could happen would be that I would have to shampoo her hair, yet again.

The day that the Crumb Cap arrived, I took it out of the envelope and handed it to Sister.  I let her play with it for a while before I actually attempted to put it on her.  Then, when meal time came around, I told her that she could wear her special hat and tried it on her to see how she would do. When she consented to wear it, I decided to give her one of the dreaded goo-makers… a banana. 



After mealtime, I tried to take the Crumb Cap off, to see if her hair was all clean, but she threw a fit and ran away.  She wanted to keep it on.  She ended up wearing it for almost five hours, and refused all of my attempts to remove it.  I wasn’t concerned, though, because the material is lightweight and breathable.  We finally managed to get the Crumb Cap off after dinner!

Because the Crumb Cap reportedly fits over most hair accessories, I thought I would give that a whirl as well.  We went out to dinner with a group of friends on Saturday evening. I took pictures of Sister before I put the crumb cap on, with the crumb cap on, and then after dinner.

My review:  As you can see, I received the Crumb Cap in one of the new fun colors, celery, that will soon be available.  It will also soon be available in prints.  The Crumb Cap is easy to use, lightweight, and stays in place.  It protected Sister’s hair from food filled swipes, and saved my back since I didn’t have to shampoo her hair as much.  It wipes off easily, and when she did get tomato based sauce on it, it actually came off.  When it was covered in slime from one particularly messy meal, I rinsed it in the sink and hung it up to dry.  It was as good as new by the next mealtime.  Sister loves it, and tries to run from me when I try to take it off.  I think the Crumb Cap is the best thing since macaroni and cheese!


Don’t have a messy child of your own?  The Crumb Cap would make a great gift for the parent of one (especially if birthday SMASH cake is to be involved) or shower present for the mom-to-be.

You can purchase your Crumb Cap here! 

Be blessed!

  1. OK – first of all … could she BE any cuter?

    I always think the best inventions are the ones where I sit there and go DUH, why didn’t I think of that? I think I’d like it better in a pattern or print because right now, it kind of looks like a bathing suit cap or something, but I think it’s a great idea and it would have saved me boatloads of time when my kids were younger.
