     The nice people at Carseat Canopy gave me the opportunity to review one of their 5piece Whole Caboodle in the style of Hawkslee(my choice because I love the moss green). It is an amazingly soft minky set that includes the whole set to replace your carseat from cover to canopy.
     Whenever I see anything that becomes a replacement involving car seat covers I get a little overwhelmed but I have to admit the car seat I own came with great instructions as well as easy to maneuver straps. It becomes challenging but after seeing the quality of the product it meant the world in comfort.
     The first thing we did was remove the previous cover and wash the straps(cant have a new cover and dirty straps) some carseat carriers are easier than others so take your time and don't stress it easier if you don't get to upset about it. I removed the new cover from the packaging and it was so soft I could have rubbed it all day :) I just adore MINKY.
Trust me I have NO patience and if I can do it then anyone can, I have to admit I did an awesome job. As this picture shows this is with the umbrella and cover changed. I really like the pattern as it is navy, green, grey and white colored and the pattern is kind of hard to explain outside of semi similar to a camo style. I think its pretty cool patterned.
     The next thing we put in was the headrest(oops pic missing) like a typical headrest for a newborn softly padded and all minky in moss green has Velcro to attach and the Velcro is plenty and holds it in place tight. Of course as the child gets a little bigger you remove it anyways and its easy to remove as it is to install.
     The umbrella replaces the one originally attached to the carrier it slips off easy and the instructions are included with all Car Seat canopy packaging. You unsnap the one or two pieces holding umbrella into position and you slide the minky one on in its place. Mine carrier had to braces so when I slide cover down to attach I tucked the extra brace inside the minky.

    The whole Caboodle comes with a nice minky blanket, patterned on one side, minky on the other and there is no real way to lay it except for however you are feeling that day. Both sides are soft though the minky is softer.
I would assume the minky would keep the baby warmer in cooler weather but maybe that is just my opinion.
     And finally the canopy cover, so super easy to install but looking at it looks kind of difficult. When I took it out of packaging I unfolded it and one side had Velcro straps and buttons so you know which side to use. I raised the carrier handle to its upright position and attached the Velcro straps from the underneath it has a big bold button on top where it should be resting on the handle. The straps are lengthily enough that it has a nice snug fit without the chance of slipping and the handle being exposed keeps you from losing grip of carrier.
I have to say this is one of most useful items I have owned that is made to cover for a car seat carrier. It does not fall off to the ground because its well attached, it is completely washable(of course I recommend gentle, cold and air dry), the canopy covers the entire area of carseat to prevent wind or dust blowing in babies face. My days of cutting a slit in a blanket to cover baby are over with this canopy you don't need to.
