The onesies to rule them all
Let me start by saying that I love reviewing all the products you see on this site, but this one, well this one was a treat. Today we take a look at onesies we received from Kigurumi.ca, a company created and based in Montreal since 2011. But before we begin, let's go over what kigurumi really is. Wikipedia tells us the following: "In English-speaking countries kigurumi are referred to as costumed characters, animal costumes, mascot costumes, or fursuits depending on the context. Fursuits are mascot-style costumes that represent animals and cartoon characters." Got it? Good! Let's begin.
These onesies come in two main categories. We have the animal onesies and we have the character onesies. Most, but not all of them, come in one size fits all. I'm a pretty big guy (6 feet tall) and I am more than comfortable in them so that should in no way deter you from getting one. If you are really worried, some do come in medium (ideal for those who are 4'11" to 5'9" tall) and large sizes (ideal for those who are 5'10" and taller).
The onesies also made in three different fabrics. Fleece (ideal for cold winter nights), terrycloth and pile (both lighter and a bit more breathable). The official site also offers a wash and care guide. Later this fall Kigurumi will also offer onesies for kids.
Style and quality
Two words, top notch! I've worn my fair share of onesies and this one has by far the best quality I've had the chance to wear. From the buttons to the inseam, nothing feels "cheap". As you can see by the pictures I've posted above and below, the onesies are quite stylish. Upon posting pictures of myself on facebook, I quickly made quite a few jealous people. Last but not least, comfort. I swear to god, if wearing onesies was socialy acceptable, I would fill my wardrobe with Kigurumi onesies and wear nothing else. Soft and hanging very loosely, this outfit is great for things such as lounging around the house to eat marshmallows around a campfire.
The bottom line
The bottom line is we all need to be a little more silly in life to really enjoy ourselves and these onesies are a perfect way to start. As a middle school PE teacher, I cannot wait for the next PJ themed day at school! Now If you visit this site often you know that some products have felt our wrath during reviews, but I can't find a single thing I don't like about this one. For that reason, Kigurumi onesies make it into the "Top products" reviewed section of testerbrothers.com
Come back soon for the second part of the review which will be filmed so you can have a better look at all the great features of the Kigurumi onesies!
If you would like to get yourself one, you can view the full selection here.

Not really going Coo-coo for the Cookoo watch
There has been a big buzz around smart watches lately, and for that reason I decided to review the COOKOO Bluetooth watch. The name says it all, it’s a watch that has the capacity to connect to Bluetooth enabled devices (in my case an iPhone) and alert you in certain situations. I've used it for about a week, while at work, and it felt like this watch could have been so much more than it is. Being a watch and technology fanatic I was looking forward to using it, but all it did was leave me disappointed. Here’s why:
First of all, the COOKOO watch has a lot of features, just not the right ones. It has the ability to: show that you have a reminder, an alarm, a text, an email, a phone call or that it’s time to charge your phone. What it can’t do is show you what the reminder, the text or the email actually is. As a person who works in an environment where I can’t always be near my phone, I find it extremely frustrating knowing that I have received a text but can’t see it.
Also, I should add that setting up your watch isn't easy. Even though it has an app and a pamphlet to guide you while you set it up and customize the buttons, it took a lot of time to understand how to make it work. Once you get the hang of it and are able to customize each buttons, some functions can be very useful. For example, the find your phone function probably saved me a couple of minutes of looking for my phone. The “take a picture function” made it easier for group photos and the music control is not too bad.
Style and performance
Like I said earlier I am a watch fanatic. That being said, I would not buy the COOKOO watch based on its looks; it is too minimalist for me. But tastes being something different for everyone, I won’t get into the aesthetics. The materials they used to make the strap and watch both feel and look durable. The strap is comfortable and very adjustable. For obvious, reasons the watch is not waterproof.
As for performance, it had its connectivity issues. Half of the time I spent using the watch it wasn't connected to my device. The beautiful thing about smart watches is that when you lose connectivity with your device, you can still use it as a watch. As for the battery life, it is claimed to last up to a full year and also comes with a replacement battery.
The bottom line
At 129$ USD, I would not recommend buying a COOKOO smartwatch , at least not before they fix connectivity issues and add full text display.
