We bought this blanket as the weather started getting cold last year to stop our daughters fighting, our eldest daughter has a winnie the pooh fleece which she snuggles up with on the sofa when watching TV and our youngest daughter kept trying to pull it off her. I bought the fleece from Amazon as I had some credit on there and since at the time my youngest had only just turned 1 and didn't really have any favourite characters at that time I wanted to pick a girly blanket for her. When the blanket was delivered it was rolled up tight and simply secured with a paper label sellotaped round, I was however quite impressed with amazon as it was still packed in a padded envelope even though it obviously isn't breakable. The blacket is 120cm x 150cm so is a good size for a single bed, it can be washed at up to 40 degrees although I wash just about everything at 30 degrees and this has always got the blanket clean and it can be tumble dried although it dries really quickly so i don't see the point in using the drier. The fleece is pink in colour with a karge me to you bear covering the majority of it, the bear is holding a huge daisy hence the name of the blanket, there are also some little butterflies and hearts in lovely pale colours on the background. I think the blanket is really cute but then i'm a me to you fan. The fleece is very soft to the touch and it washes really well, it is pretty thin and lightweight but it is great for snuggling on the sofa and we often put it in the car when we are going on long journeys. I would recommend this blanket, it isn't a bargain but it isn't overpriced for a character blanket at £8.50, it is cute and soft and can be rolled up quite small to tuck it in the side panel of the car.
My daughter is a big fan of cuddling up on the sofa with a blanket and some dollies, for this reason she has a couple of different designs, and even one at nans house! The one I will review now is her Me To You Daisy blanket. The blanket comes all rolled up with a paper label securing it in place. The label has the Me To You logo and some care information. The blanket, once unravelled, is 120cm x 150 cm. This is a perfect size for me, so for my daughter it is even better for her to snuggle up with her favourite dollies. The blanket is made from 100% polyester, I have no idea about different materials and softness or whatever, what I do know is that blanket is very soft. It's quite lightweight so that it isn't going to make you overheat, but it is still snug at the same time with the good softness. The Me To You design of the blanket is what you would expect from a product of this range. With a big teddy covering the most part of the pink blanket holding a big daisy. It is very girly and I would say it is only really for girls but hey, if boys like pink and Me To You too then so be it! I've washed the blanket quite a few times on a 40 wash and let it dry outside, or on a clothes horse and after a couple of washes it did start to bobble. Although it started to bobble after a couple of washes, the bobbling hasn't actually got worse even though I've washed it more since then, which is definitely a good thing as it's still usable. I purchased this from Play.com when it was on sale for £3.99, blankets of this type normally retail for around the £7 mark. I'm not sure if this daisy design is still available to buy but there are other designs from Me To You available. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this blanket, although it hasn't got the best thickness and starts to bobble quite quickly, it is still soft and snug, quite a nice size and the design is simply adorable!
