My eldest daughter used to really like Peppa Pig and she also has a real attraction to character fleece blankets for some unknown reason, last year when I was looking for something to give her when she reached enough stickers on her reward chart I came across this blanket and knew she would love it.
I bought the fleece from my local Asda store and it cost me £5, it was for sale during one of their many promotions and my local store doesn't normally stock this sort of item luckily we have an Asda Living store nearby.
The fleece is a standard size so that when laid flat it just about covers a single bed although it is never on my daughter's bed as she always has her fleeces to snuggle into in the front room.
The fleece is mainly pink in colour but has a large circle in the middle of it surrounded by a flowered border and inside the circle is a large picture of Peppa herself. The blanket is pretty much red, yellow and pink in colour and it matches the bedding set that my daughter also owns.
The fleece is made from 100% polyester, it washes very well and dries in about 30 minutes as long as the surroundings are not too cold. The blanket is pretty thin which of course is another reason it is quick to dry but it is still really soft which makes it nice and cuddly which my daughter loves.
I think that for £5 this is a lovely blanket, Sophie was very happy when she saw the blanket and even though she is not overly keen on Peppa pig now she still snuggles in the blanket although now she has to fight her younger sister for it, you really wouldn't think we had loads of character fleeces the way they behave! I would recommend this blanket and I know both my daughters would too.
I bought this fleecy blanket from Mothercare. It was reduced down to just £2.50 in the post Christmas sales so how could I resist it?
My granddaughter loves Peppa Pig as do most young children I know! She is a lovely little piggie who is shown on television every day on channel 5 and my granddaughter has lots of different Peppa Pig goodies from clothing, toys to now this little blanket.
It is lovely and bright and colourful. It came rolled up so we couldn't see the full design properly but once opened it's lovely. Peppa is smiling away and it is definitely one for the girls as it's very pink!
My granddaughter loves this. We don't let her have it at night as it's the kind of material that would make her sweat if she slept under it but we do have this on our sofa and she likes to snuggle up with it when she is having some down time.
It is really large, about the size of a cot bed so it's a good size to have. My granddaughter is 3 and it covers her up nicely and I must admit I have been known to put it over my knee and keep warm under when it has been cold!
We have washed it as it did get food spilt on it and it washed fine. We washed it alone though as the colours are so bright it ran a little. It remains in good condition and i cannot complain really for £2.50 anyway! Really recommend.
My little niece is Peppa Pig mad at the moment, she even has the proper Peppa pig toddler bed and duvet set. When I spotted thisfor just £5 in Asda I knew I had to get it for her.
The fleece is 100% polyester and feels lovely and soft to the touch, it's a lovely baby pink colour with a big picture of Peppa Pig on the front surrounded in hearts and flowers. It's very thin so is only really suitable to throw over the bed covers or for snuggling up with on the sofa.
I did intend to keep this at my place for when Lexy visits but that plan went right out the window when she got her hands on it. She often comes round my place for a treat night and we'll cuddle up and watch cartoons with a few treats so I thought this would be ideal. Lexy loved it and was cuddled in by my side on the sofa with it on her and told me she was all cosey. She insisted on having on the bed when I put her to sleep in the spare room so I had to cover her over with it and tuck her in. The next day she got her little rucksack and started stuffing it in there to take home. I asked if we could leave it here for next time she came over but she was having none of it.
Lexy likes to have this fleece out in the evening at home right before bedtime when she settles down with her milk and the night time hour on television. It's a little worn looking now after being through the wash so many times but she loves it. For £5 you can't go wrong.
My daughter is Peppa pig mad if you could not tell from the rest of my reviews so when I seen this blanket in asda for just £5 I had to get it for her. The fleece itself is made from 100% polyester. The blanket is nice and fluffy a little on the thin side but all the same it keeps you nice and warm. It is a lovely baby pink and has a picture of Peppa pig on one side of it with a lovely heart, sun and flower pattern printed around it.Pink yellow red there are a mixture of colours in there making it very bright, attractive and feminine perfect for any little girl especially a Peppa pig fan. The details of Peppas character are perfect exactly the same as the TV character.
The blanket itself is lovely and cuddily perfect for adding a bit of comfort when your sitting around watching a film or just lying around.We also use it as a bed runner for my little girls bed and is perfect for a little added heat in these cold winter months. It is lovely and soft no irritable on the skin.We have washed this blanket and it has come out just as comfy and colourfull as when we first purchased it so there are no worries there. The balnket is a nice size just a little smaller than a usual single duvet just alot thinner.
A lovely light practical blanket that can be used for many different situations and at the same time is lovely for a Peppa pig fan. I would reccomend this to anyone at £5 is a real bargin for a character fleece but still has a high quality. As it is peppa pig it fits in well with all other peppa pig acceseries and makes a welcome addition to our daughters room.
My daughter currently has a borderline obsession for peppa pig. She has peppa pig everything! We have the series recorded on the sky box and that's all she will ever watch! Having just redecorated her bedroom we wanted to add a few things peppa pig. As children do they go from one thing to another like hot cakes, so I didn't see the point in decorating her room peppa pig because she would probably be into something else in a few months!
We decided to just add a few little things that would be easy to remove when this phase went on to something else. (I am currently guessing that her next phase will be Ben and hollies little kingdom as she sometimes likes to takes breaks from peppa pig to watch this) anyway for her room we just got a few little bits such as posters and a height chart, we also have the teddy collection.
I saw this peppa pig fleece at a market when we were on holiday in the summer. It was only priced at £5.00 and it was just so adorable, I had to get it! Even though she doesn't sleep with a blanket anymore it still comes in handy. With the weather starting to get cold again it is really nice for her to snuggle up on the couch when she wakes up in the morning, ironically watching peppa pig!
The blanket itself is so soft (I mean like really soft) I have cuddled up to it once or twice and it is really nice. It's not as thick and heavy as some others we have had, but because it is so soft plus a little bit fluffy it does the job of keeping you warm really well. However I couldn't advise you using it instead of a quilt, because it's not that good!
The fleece is a lovely baby pink with a large yellow circle in the middle with a large head of peppa pig. This is then ringed with what you could describe as a border of flowers and hearts. It really is beautiful and unlike some of the other character fleeces you can get which look somewhat tacky.
The fleece is made from 100% polyester which gives it its extra softness. It is also machine washable and is suitable for a tumble dryer. Although we have put the fleece in the washing machine several times with it coming out looking brand new, I will not put it in the dryer. I have never put any of my daughter clothes or things in the dryer as they are so small and delicate I wouldn't like them to shrink. Although it is probably fine to do so, it's just not something I like to do. I also think drying things naturally gives it a clean and fresh smell.
The fleece is of a lovely size, the exact measurements are: 120cm x 150cm. It's definitely big enough for me to wrap up in it so for my daughter it's like a huge heaven of softness.
I would definitely recommend this to any peppa pig fan and it is guaranteed to look pretty in every princess's bedroom. It would also make for a snugly bugley gift for somebody.
My daughter loves snuggling up under a blanket on the sofa (she got that from me, I love being cosy and if I could live under a blanket I would!) and she also loved Peppa Pig. So when I saw this Peppa Pig Polka Dot Fleece Blanket a few weeks ago I knew she'd love it! I paid £5 for this at the supermarket, where it caught me by surprise being nice and bright on the shelves, and I thought that was fairly good value.
The fleece has a very cute and girly design of Peppa on the front, and the main colour is a pale pink. Contrary to the name, there are no actual polka dots on this blanket, but to be honest I don't mind - I think the design is better without spots as I think it would look too busy with them.
The fleece is made from 100% polyester, and though it's fairly thin to feel it's very soft and actually keeps the warmth in fairly well, making it idea for the sofa. The blanket is big enough to cover most of my daughter's single bed and I am told by her it's big enough for both my daughter, and two of her friends to sit on comfortably whilst having a tea party!
When it's not over my daughter in the early evening on the sofa, it's over her bed, and provides an additional layer of warmth over her duvet. She's also used it as a picnic blanket in the garden, so overall it's quite a flexible little fleecy blanket that's good for a variety of uses.
My daughter really loves the design and loves snuggling under this or sitting on it. It was £5 well spent, as so far it's proved durable and comes clean in the wash easily without bobbling or fraying. I can really recommend it.
I brought the Peppa Pig Polka Dot Fleece Blanket a while back for my daughter who is a massive Peppa Pig fan.
***Who is Peppa?***
Peppa Pig is an animated childrens programme which is aimed at pre-schoolers and is created by Mark Baker and Neville Astley. The programme revolves around a little girl pig called Peppa and her family - Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and little brother George. Peppas friends and grandparents also regularly feature in episodes. Each episode is just 5 minute long and a number of episodes are shown back-to-back when aired on television. Peppa Pig is regularly aired on Nick Jnr and Five.
Peppa Pig is currently HUGE among boys and girls aged 1-5 years old.
The blanket is quite thin but is very soft and very snug. My daughter loves snuggling up on the sofa with it (and it's much more convienient than dragging her duvet downstairs!).
It is made from 100% polyester and doesn't attract things. We have a pair of throws that pick up EVERYTHING - dust, hairs - you name it! The fact this blanket doesn't pick up things is a total relief. It seems very safe and doesn't molt or have bits that can be removed.
It's a good quality blanket that seems durable - we have used it regularly for over a year and it's still not showing any signs of wear and tear. It's also machine washable and is easy to clean.
It has a very cute and girly design. The names states that the blanket is 'polka dot' but there aren't any polka dots on it - I think the name actually refers to the fact that the picture (and flower border) match those on the Peppa polka dot rug, cushion and duvet set. My daughter currently has a Peppa polka dot bedroom so this fits in very well indeed!
The size of the fleece blanket is quite large and impressive (120cm x 150cm). I never realised how large it was when I brought it, so when I removed it from the packaging I was pleasantly surprised. It's wide enough to wrap around myself a few times and is long enough to cover my whole body whilst laying down! Needless to say there is more than enough blanket for my daughter...
On cold nights my daughter uses her Peppa fleece blanket in bed, aswell as her duvet. On hot nights she uses the blanket on its own. It's also been used in the car, in the garden, on the beach and for picnics!
As mentioned above, she also likes to lay with it on the sofa - particularly in the evenings and in the winter.
***Price & Availability***
We got our Peppa Pig Polka Dot Fleece Blanket from Sainsburys for around £5.00 which is good value for money in my opinion. It is currently selling on Amazon for £6.99 which isn't too bad either. There is also a George version (Peppa's brother) of this blanket available which is more boyish.
"I would recommend this cosy fleece blanket to all Peppa fans!"
My daughter loves to get cosy on the sofa with me and my husband with a blanket in the Winter. In the end, she asked for a blanket of her own because the "panda blanket was Mummy's". So off I went to look on the Internet for a fleece blanket for her. She chose the Peppa Pig one.
When the blanket arrived, it was rolled up with a a cardboard band around it which stated it was the Peppa Pig blanket. It also had it the dimensions of the blanket on it which are: 120 x 150cm. It is made from 100% polyester and has a lovely soft and snuggly feel to it. It feels like fleece and gives the impression that it will keep you fairly warm, despite it being very thin.
The blanket itself is baby pink with a very big picture of Peppa in the middle on a yellow circular background with flowers and hears going around the edge of the circle. It also has "Peppa" writtin in the white Peppa Pig style font in the bottom right hand corner. It is very pretty and very girly.
It is a really big blanket. When my daughter has been using it to get cosy she has been able to wrap herself up in it and keep nice and warm.
We have had my daughter's blanket for about a year now and it has been through the wash multiple times and it is still looking as good as new. It has lost shape or bobbled which is pretty good given that it only costs £5.97 which I think is a bargain price!
We also use this on my daughter's bed in the winter to give her an extra bit of warmth but without weighing her down with heavy blankets. It fits nicely over the top of her bed.
I would definately recommend this product.
I bought this blanket for my daughther early last year, she loved Peppa Pig and I thought it would be ideal to put on top of her duvet in the winter.
The blanket is very large, it is the same size as her duvet and measures 120 x 150cm. It is made from 100% polyester and has a fleece feel to it, it's lovely and soft to the touch. It fits nicely over her bed and keeps her a lot warmer in the winter. It is very lightweight so it doesn't sit heavily on the bed.
The blanket has a pink background and has a large circle with Peppa inside. The background of the circle is yellow and the edges of the circle are flowers and lovehearts. It is very pretty and very girly, it looks great in her room.
The material is quite thin but when you wrap yourself in it you feel lovely and snug. Because of the size of the blanket you can fold it over and it is still big enough to cover the child when they are in bed.
We have had this blanket for over a year and a half and it hasn't bobbled or lost it's shape. It is suitable for use in the washing machine and in the tumble dryer and despite being washed many times it still looks as good as new.
My daughter loves this blanket and I was so pleased with it that I bought my son a similar boys one. My daughter takes it in the car if we are going on a long trip and it keeps her comfortable and warm, especially if the trip is made in the night. She also takes it in the tent when we go camping.
For the price -£5.97- you can't go wrong with this blanket!
My best friends little girl is Peppa Pig mad. She has everything in her bedroom designed in Peppa pig. I was at a loss as to what to get her for her birthday, as she has everything. When I stumbled across this peppa pig fleece blanket in my local homewear store. I was totally drawn to this blanket as it had such a bright and pretty design, with the background being in sugary pink.
I had bought my son a ben 10 fleece blanket previously and knew how much he loved to cuddle into it at night. So I was sure she would love the cosy soft material plus the fun and pretty peppa pig design.
I was struck by the quality of this blanket. The stiching was very neat and secure. Also the size of the blanket was generous and about the same size as a single duvet. Her mum says that she finds this blanket a godsend as if she has not got a peppa pig duvet cover, then this blanket over the bed clothes still ensures that everything in the room matches.
This Peppa pig blanket, has been washed on numerous occasions. However it still has maintained it's vibrant colours and high quality texture. The fleece is still soft and smooth. I have also noted that this blanket has been used as a cool accessory on which to have a picnic. Which I know pleased my friends little girl and made her feel special.
This blanket also provides a great deal of warmth in the winter. I have noted that in the mornings when I am looking after her she is dropped off in her pyjamas and cuddled up in this blanket. She is always so toasty and cosy. This is great as it keeps her comforted in the morning and can be transported with ease as it is not nearly as heavy as a duvet cover.
I would recommend the purchase of this blanket for anyone who has a daughter or relative who loves Peppa pig. It is a lovely quality item and one which can be used over and over again without losing any of it's charm or quality. I know that my friends daughter has taken this Peppa Pig blanket on a camping holiday and it certainly helped her settle into that environment much easier.
My three year old granddaughter has always been a Peppa Pig fan, right from when she was too small to even watch the television programmes properly, so when she was given her own bedroom it seemed only natural to fill it with the image of this delightful little piggy.
This fleece blanket was an afterthought; not because it isn't beautiful (it is) but simply because my granddaughter already has a duvet on her bed, it just didn't seem worth buying 'blankets' now she is at the age where blankets are a thing of the past. However, when they were being offered free with a rather cheap bedding set from Mothercare I decided to treat her.
I actually bought the fleece blanket at an ideal time, remember the out-of-season sunny and hot spell we had back in April. Well, I gave my granddaughter the blanket just before minor heat wave began - she doesn't tolerate heat well so I imagined it would be put away, or I was going to suggest using it as a picnic blanket. Two days later my daughter telephoned to say the fleece had been a godsend; apparently the little one had become very upset during a particularly warm night, finding her summer weight duvet far too warm yet unable to settle uncovered.
This Peppa Pig fleece blanket solved the problem, allowing my daughter to remove the troublesome duvet but still giving my granddaughter the comfort of being covered up in bed. For this reason, the main use I shall recommend this fleece for is as summer bedding. It's not a terribly thick blanket so isn't suitable for these chilly nights we seem to be having at the moment, although my granddaughter usually goes to bed at around 8pm when it is still warm so she sometimes uses the fleece to get to sleep and my daughter will swap it with her duvet at some point during the night.
I imagine it would be good as a pushchair blanket if you have a toddler. My granddaughter hasn't been in a pushchair for some months now, but I remember my daughter favoured these fleece type blankets and had a large collection of In the Night Garden and Teletubbies designs. This particular blanket is larger than average; I don't have the precise dimensions, but it fits my granddaughters 'junior' bed perfectly although is a little small to be used on a normal sized single. You would have to fold it for use in an average size pushchair, but the soft and cosy material would make it ideal for wrapping around your child sleeping bag style.
The material is beautiful, as is the design. It's 100% polyester with a wonderful softness, it has retained this soft feel through at least eight machine washes now too and this surprised me somewhat as fleece products can become stiff and uncomfortable after even one wash - even using fabric conditioner, as I always do!
You can see the fleece blanket perfectly well in the photograph above, and usefully this also gives a good representation of the size of the product - bearing in mind that what you see is a 'junior' bed and therefore slightly smaller than a single bed. The fleece is nice and bright, very feminine as are the majority of Peppa Pig items and will be sure to please any small Peppa Pig fan. Providing it's a girl fan though really, I wonder what the younger male fans buy as the selection of blue Peppa Pig merchandise is almost non-existent!
As I mentioned, this fleece blanket has been washed several times. On the label it doesn't give a recommended temperature, or rather it does but there happens to be a large black mark covering this information so I had to wing it the very first time I washed it. A short 30 degree wash left the blanket clean and soft, I don't trust polyester in the tumble drier so have always line dried it. The blanket comes out of the washing machine almost dry anyway so it takes an hour at most to dry in the open air. My daughter tells me she can get it dry in five minutes over the radiator and that is, indeed, impressive.
I certainly recommend this Peppa Pig fleece blanket; it not only looks fantastic but is a versatile and useful addition to your child's bedroom. When my granddaughter was poorly a few weeks ago she spent all day snuggled up on the sofa with this blanket, and also uses it to spread on her bedroom floor for picnics with her long suffering elder sisters. I'm sure that as time wears on other uses will become apparent, and I am more than happy with my purchase.
As I said, the fleece blanket I own was free as part of a Mothercare offer. Having looked online I see you can purchase the blanket from Amazon for a few pence over £6, although I'm sure you will be able to find it in other online stores as Peppa Pigs popularity goes from strength to strength. I'm not actually sure if this is part of the Polka Dot collection as although the design is similar, there isn't a dot to be seen on the blanket - unlike the Polka Dot range which has a thick red polka dot border.
Peppa Pig Fleece Blanket
Cosy Up With Peppa Pig
For some of you, you will already know that my two year old daughter has recently got into Peppa Pig in a big way. We can not go into a shop without the excited cries of 'Peppa' every time she sees even something small of her television friend, and so recently after her birthday, our house is suddenly littered with various little Peppa Pig toys and other items such as the Peppa Pig fleece blanket.
For those who do not know, Peppa Pig is a lovely children's programme that follows a lovable pig family, Peppa, her brother George and her mummy and daddy as well as many different other animal families each with their own names and likes and dislikes. Each episode is only five minutes long though this is great for young children's attention spans and my daughter thoroughly enjoys watching each little episode, and to be honest, so do I!
Each episode follows Peppa and her family in every day activities and a lot of laughs is had from this programme. As of date of writing this review, Peppa Pig has three series each consisting of 52 episodes and a whole variety of different toys, clothes and other lovely items for young fans of the show and can be seen on a variety of different television channels for children.
My daughters fleece blanket has a slightly different image to that of the one shown in the Dooyoo image. Peppa Pig is still prominent on the blanket surrounded by a yellow circle with bright flowers all around it and then another 'layer' of pale pink colour. Its appearance is very attractive and straight away, easily recognised by my daughter.
The size is slightly smaller than my daughters single bed (128cm x 172cm) though fits on top of her quilt nicely, adding that extra layer to her bed in these cold nights which she loves. She also brings the blanket downstairs to cover her on the sofa if she feels tired in the day or simply for the cosy feel to it. She also has great fun getting her little Peppa Pig figures to 'talk' to the Peppa Pig on the blanket which I find so sweet to watch!
For a fleece blanket, it is rather a thin blanket. I was quite surprised when we opened the wrapping and found just how thin it actually was. It doesn't give a whole lot of warmth to it, though does help a little. It would have been better it being thicker, though - even saying this, I have it draped over me and do feel that extra layer of warmth though it really isn't the sort of blanket that you can curl under and feel really cosy in, though also saying that - it is a childs blanket and my daughter loves wrapping it around herself so perhaps it feels more cosy and warm to a young child than an adult which is good.
To the touch, the blanket is very soft. It is made of 100% polyester and it lovely to run your fingers over. It is also short haired for want of a better word, meaning that there is no loss of material from the blanket so there is no worry about blanket strands coming off and going into the childs mouth when sleeping. Due to this, I would say that it is safe for much younger children too - though maybe a little on the large size for babies!
My daughter has only had this blanket for about two weeks though so far there has not been any damage to the blanket. It is fully machine washable to easy to get stains off - we have washed it and also found no colour drain from it which is great. There is also no loose threads coming off or any type of other damage which will hopefully continue!
PRICE AND AVALIABILITY
On the label this states that it is an issue 1 blanket though I do not know how many different ones after this there are. This is still being sold, though, and we found it in Pound Stretcher for £4.00, though have also seen this in Asda for £6.00. I am sure that Ebay will help you find another bargain on this - I have seen this particular one on Ebay a couple of times.
£4.00 isnt a too bad price for this blanket, and my daughter loves it though I always say, look for the bargains to help save a little bit of money especially in todays climate!
My daughter absolutely loves this blanket and it now goes with her around the house, whenever she is feeling cold or upset. Although it is thin, I have found that since having it on her bed, she hasn't seemed to get cold in the night like she did before, and even seems to get over hot sometimes so perhaps the thinness of the blanket does not take away the warmth - and it is very soft to touch which is lovely.
Would I recommend this blanket? Yes, most certainly for a young Peppa Pig fan. The price is low and the blanket is lovely, even though it is thin.
