LOVE IT!! Not only did we receive it in a very timely manner, Ms. Marsha also did a FANTASTIC job of customizing our order to our specifications. We asked for a hot pink lining and pink bow embellishment and just LOVE what she produced. Will definitely purchase from again. Thank you SOOO much!!

Love the style, so cute, I do wish the fleece was more of a soft minky type, or micro fleece, or plush type, the feece used on mine is fairly thin but its is 2 layers so should be warm ,I did not specify any special fleece be used though so that is just something I will remember to request with my next order if an option. the work is great, the stitching etc.. all looks neat as a pin :) size is perfect as well and the shipping was quick and as promised. The seller was also quick at responding to questions and also adjusted the length for my petite little girl as requested. Thank you, I will happily recommend and buy from this shop again.

I ordered this a few years ago my first child and came back to order for my second. It's a must when getting kids in and out of their car seats in the winter since they can't wear their jackets in the car seats. It's really easy and convenient to put the cape on them. So much easier than taking jackets on and off if it's just quick trip from house to car and much more efficient than throwing a blanket over them because it stays on by itself. I like that this cape has Velcro to put it on instead of some that go around the neck like a shirt- which to me loses the easiness factor. Very soft and comfortable. Kids use them as a blanket when they get into the car seat or stroller. I honestly can't imagine going through the winter without this.
A Mommy's Love
Big Caboose was created in January of 2012 by me, Marsha Funk, wife to Jason Funk and mother to daughter's Mia and Amelia. I love creating cute and functional pieces for my little ones. After getting so many compliments and "where did you get that" from others on my baby capes and pants, I decided to open up an Etsy Shop. I hope others will enjoy my pieces as much as I do!
I was inspired to create these fun and functional toddler and baby capes when my little one turned six months old. She decided that she was no longer satisfied to be carried around in her seat when we went on errands. With cold weather approaching and a squirmy baby on my hands, putting a coat on and off was not an option. A comfy cape became a practical, easy, warm, and of course cute solution. It kept her warm getting in and out of the car and safe since I was not buckling her in her car seat with a bulky coat. See why here: http://www.today.com/moms/warning-parents-why-bulky-winter-coats-car-seats-dont-mix-2D11585035
I have since expanded on my toddler and baby capes by adding fur capes and rain capes. I hope to add special occasion capes, bathing suit cover-up capes, and towel capes. See my capes here:
I cloth diaper both of my girls. Finding pants especially jeans was always a challenge and more so for Mia since she was a chunker! My Big Caboose Jeans allow for extra stretch in the bum by combining a knit fabric with the denim. Now we have cute jeans that fit and work nicely with cloth diapers!
I love sewing and having a creative outlet. As time permits, I would like to add more items to my shop that compliment my current items. Have a suggestion? I would love to hear it!
Check out my new blog! It features my Etsy Shop Big Caboose but is about my life as I see it.
