“ Brand: Matalan / Type: Blanket „
Since Jayden has been born we have purchased him several blankets as they come in handy for using in his pushchair, his mosses basket or even just general use in the house if he falls asleep somewhere, we can simply cover him up with one of his blankets to keep him warm. Just before he was born we had a trip to our local Matalan to stock up on a few baby bits that we needed but didn't want to spend a fortune on. Whilst we were there I spotted the Super Soft Luxury Blanket, it was so soft and cosy feeling I just had to have one.
The blanket didn't actually come with any packaging, it was simply hung on a coat hanger. The blanket is a large square shape with rounded corners, the front of the blanket has an almost furry feel to it and is covered in small furry bobbles, the back of the blanket is made from the same furry material but without the bobbles. There is no design on the blanket but the bobbly texture on the front of the blanket makes it just that little bit different to the other blankets we hand purchased, there is a small tag sewn into one edge of the blanket which contains the washing instructions. The blanket is edged all the way around with a cotton type fabric to match the colour of the main part of the blanket. We purchased this blanket in white as it was the only colour they had in the store, however online this can also be bought in both pale pink and pale blue, personally I think I would have also purchased this blanket in blue as white isn't very practical to take out in the pushchair so this one is now reserved for use in the house or where it cannot get too dirty.
The Super Soft Luxury Blanket is easy to look after, it is machine washable and it is recommended that it is washed at 40 degrees and ironed on the reverse, although I don't really see the point in ironing it, you should also wash this with similar colours, this is definitely the case with the white one that we have.
The blanket is of a decent size and I can easily wrap it right round Jayden to keep him warm, it is a little large for his mosses basket, however we do tend to fold it in half and cover him up with it in there for extra warmth. The size of the blanket makes it ideal to lay on the floor for your baby to lay on and have a kick about should they wish, and the extra soft furry fabric means that the carpet will not rub on their skin and cause soreness or irritation. I have found the Super Soft Luxury Blanket to be very versatile it can be spread out if you need a large blanket or folded up to make a smaller cover should you need it.
The Super Soft Luxury Blanket was, as I have mentioned from Matalan and was a reasonable price and cost just £9.00, personally I thought this was a very good price for this item as it is very well made and of an excellent quality. I didn't really want to pay out a lot of money for a blanket, however I do not think that this one was over priced and in my opinion it is well worth the money.
I have been very pleased with the Super Soft Luxury Blanket, I love the material it is made from it really is extremely soft and the bobbly texture makes it very touchy feely, it is the material you have to keep feeling, I also like the fact that the slightly furry fabric is soft against Jayden's skin, the blanket feels almost like it is in two layers so I know it is going to keep him warm and cosy. The blanket is very reasonably priced and available in 3 colours so there is something for everyone. In my opinion this was well worth the money and I would definitely consider purchasing another one if they had them in stock, the only thing I find with this blanket is that the white colour isn't very practical for use when out and about. Definitely one I would recommend.
