Bowser Baby Carrier Cover

By: on April 02, 2016
Discontinued

Here's a good way to keep strangers from touching your kid. Jeanette and her Naturally Crafty Etsy shop have craftily pounced on and taken down the scowling, snarling, pixel-thirsty King of the Koopas, and Mario's arch nemesis, Bowser. As proof of and prize for her triumph, Jeannette claimed his spiky shell, and then converted it into a piece of armor that will shield your baby in his carrier, and impale any uninvited hand that tries to cross it.

OK, fine. This Bowser's shell is actually made of ultrasoft 'n' comfy fleece and his spikes are stuffed with cotton.

But it still looks menacing. In a geeky, cartoonish sort of way.

The Koopa king baby carrier cover fits over any soft, structured carrier, including Ergo, Bjorn, Infantino, Beco, and Tula. It has adjustable straps and relief buckles, plus a zippered top that opens into a backpack-type pocket for baby gear storage. The fleece front is also lined in DuckCloth canvas to give Bowser's backside more structure and strength.
