HALO® SleepSack® Big Kids Review & Giveaway (#HALOSleepSack)


HALO® SleepSack® is well known for providing comfort and warmth to little babies.  The wearable blanket provides warmth safely for those that can not sleep with blankets.  The new line of products is designed to provide the coziness many love about the SleepSack®, but to an older set of kids.

HALO Sleep sack

The Early Walker  fits children to a maximum size of 36 pounds, while the Big Kids version fits children to a maximum of 46 inches tall.  Obviously, children at these ages can wear blankets, but frequently those blankets have a way of being kicked off during the night.  I know that I have checked on my children at night only to discover all their cozy blankets pushed to the side.  During the summer months when the heat is unbearable this obviously isn’t a concern.  But I live in Minnesota and while it technically might be spring, it still definitely feels like winter.


My five year old donned this sleeping blanket sack to give it a try.  I can’t deny.  It looks odd.  It is just unlike anything I’ve ever seen anybody wear.  That being said, my son loves it.  He thinks of it as a parachute.  He happily has been bounding across the house comfy and happy as ever.  I received the Big Kids version in a size 5T, but I honestly thought it would be too small for him.  I actually envisioned my three year old wearing it.  But the sizes are really true to size.  The 5T fit my 5 1/2 year old perfectly.

As you can see PJ’s are still worn underneath this sack.  They are not pajamas within themselves, though of course I’m sure there will be children who will want to wear them alone.   Instead the sack is there to provide extra warmth for when those covers get kicked to the floor.  Or in my son’s mind, the sack is there to give him super parachuting skills:)

HALO Sleepsack

The sack is easy to take on and off, though one thing that is a bit different is that the zipper zips down.  Rather than zipping the zipper up, attach the pieces at the top and zip down.  I thought this would prove to make putting on a bit difficult, but we haven’t had any problems.

These new SleepSacks are now available in a new lightweight-knit fabric as well as available in Micro-fleece and Comfort Mesh.

HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® wearable blankets have become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. In fact, almost 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. As your child grows from baby to toddler, HALO Innovations offers the SleepSack Early Walker and SleepSack Big Kids – now in a new lightweight- knit fabric.  HALO SleepSack Early Walker and SleepSack Big Kids offer your child the warmth and security of a SleepSack so he can fall asleep fast and sleep soundly throughout the night as well as unique foot openings for more mobility when awake.
