I think everyone knows of my obsession with Winnie The Pooh when my daughter was born - even the people who have read my reviews on Doo Yoo! So you can imagine how pleased I was when my daughter was given this Winnie The Pooh embroidered fleece blanket when she was around a month old.
The blanket was absolutely beautiful. It was a white and honey coloured blanket with a very simple embroidered stitching of the traditional style Winnie The Pooh. The colour is very neutral so is suitable for a boy or a girl. It is also a very calming colour. I don't know what it is about it but it makes me feel relaxed just by looking at it!
When I first touched this blanket, I immediately wanted to chuck everyone out, settle down on the sofa with my daughter and snuggle underneath it. The material was so beautifully soft that it gave a baby's bottom a run for its money! It was just lovely to feel on your skin. My daughter loved it and would grab at it and snuggle into it as much as she could.
The embroidered Winnie The Pooh is nicely done too. It is very intricate and you can see each stitch. It adds a nice effect to the blanket; it makes it seem handmade even though it is more than likely that it has been machine made. It also gives it an older feel like it has been passed down through generations rather than being bought in the shop.
We used to put this in the pram with my daughter and it gradually got a little dirty so I had to reluctantly put it in the wash. It washed up beautifully and looked just as good as it did the day my daughter got it. It didn't bobble or lose its shape at all. I did think it would take a while to dry being made of the fleecey material but once out on the line it dried within a couple of hours, ready for my daughter to use it again.
We still have this blanket and despite it being 4 years old, it is still in as good shape as ever. My daughter doesn't use the blanket now as it is not big enough but she does use it for tucking in her bears at night.
Dimension wise it is 120x135cm. It is the perfect blanket for a cot or for use in the pram. I am not sure where it came from as it was a gift and I am nor sure how much it was either but there is a similar blanket on Mothercare for just over £18.
Highly recommended blanket for getting super snuggly with.
When I was expecting my first born, I decided along with my hubby, to decorate the nursery out in Winnie the pooh. We bought all our bedding and accesories from mothercare. One of the items we bought was this winnie the pooh embroidered fleece blanket.
The first thing that attracted me to this blanket, apart from the design was the soft and gentle feel of the fleece material. It was so soothing and just oozed comfort and quality. The colour of the blanket was also very calming and soft. A soft buttermilk tone of yellow. Because I didn't know the sex of my baby, I found this colour very appealing as it was suitable for both boys and girls.
The winnie the pooh design on the centre of the blanket was very simplistic. and added to the allure of quality regarding this blanket. I loved the attention to detail in the embroidered stitching of pooh. I thought he looked quite lifelike and almost 3d against the smooth, soft fleece.
As blankets go, I have to say this blanket has certainly stood the test of time. It is still being used today by one of my friends for her baby. It still has the same high quality. Despite it being washed numerous times. It has not lost it's soft texture or it's delicious creamy colour.
I used this blanket so much when my children were small. I loved the fact that is was slightly larger than other blankets. This coupled with the soft fleece material made this the ultimate blanket to help soothe baby to sleep. I found, I could swaddle baby nicely within this blanket and within minutes they would be sleeping fast.
When washing this blanket, I always found that it dried within no time. It always maintained it's shape and never became wishy washy or looking like a rag. I can't speak highly enough of this blanket and would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a good quality blanket for their baby.
Anti-pill fleece blanket made with repeated washes in mind.
