Our two year old daughter has a beloved leopard print fleece that she cuddles at bedtime so when our second daughter was born, her nanny thought it would be nice for her to have her own blanket too. she bought her the Disney Minnie Mouse Oh My Red Fleece Blanket Throw from an independent baby shop in town, the vibrant red colour catching her eye.
The blanket measures 100cm x 150cm and is bright red with white dots all over it. Very Minnie Mouse! In one corner is a satin black outline of Minnie Mouse's head and an embroidered signature style lettering spelling Minnie. This is a nice additional feature that is very tactile for little hands.
In the first few weeks I wrapped up our baby in this to keep her from getting chilled and we were both lovely and cosy in it. I washed it a few times and it still remained nice and soft and in great condition. I have to stop our two cats as they always seek it out to knead on it as it is so lovely and soft but as it is my daughter's blanket I don't really want the cats sleeping on it! We spent the first few days drilling in to our older daughter the fact that it was not her blanket and now she only picks it up to wrap around her little sister, so she understands that they each have their own blankets which is really sweet.
I find this blanket really versatile, it can be used as a pram or cot blanket or just for snuggling under as a throw. It is a nice and big size at 100cm x 150 cm and is made from 100% polyester which sounds horrible but it really is so soft and nice to cuddle.
I have found the blanket online for £14.97 which I think is good for the Disney brand and quality.
I think that it is lovely to have something so soft and comforting and have appreciated the warmth of this blanket myself over the colder evenings recently. So far it is washing and wearing well but I do fear that when it becomes really shabby in a few years' time my daughter will be too attached to part with it! We have got a few other blankets but due to its bigger size and superior softness this one is looking out to be the favourite one. Highly recommended and very cute for kids.
