Both my children have never had dummies which I am pleased about, they never really needed one and I am thankful I don't have to deal with getting rid of it once they get older as I see some of my friends struggle with it and am glad they never had that problem. My little boy is a thumb sucker though and has been doing this for a few months now. He only really does it when he is tired or half asleep and its quite cute to watch. When he sucks his thumb he also likes to hold a piece of material and was using our clothes, probably because he liked the familiar smell so I thought he would really like and appreciate a special blanket that he could use to snuggle up with.
I think I am a little bit obsessed with baby blankets. They are so cute and we have quite a few of them and when I saw this Taggies one I knew he would love it as I also thought it was really cute. I'm a big fan of Taggies products, toys, blankets, comforters etc that have little tags on them that catch babies eyes and give them something to grab at and focus on. I think the person who invented them was a marketing genius, give a baby any regular toy and more than likely you will find them chewing on the tag rather than playing with the actual toy so to include them as part of the toy is very clever in my opinion.
This blanket features Buddy the dog who is a very cute brown dog. He is peeking over the side of the blanket and this part of him is like a little stuffed toy. You only see his face but I think this design makes him look very cute and playful. The blanket is blue so its perfect for a boy and this definitely has more a boys design and feel to it than a girls blanket. To go with the dog on the blanket you also get his little kennel with his name on it and a little bone stitched onto the blanket as well.
The taggies are all around the edge of the blanket and are great, all different colours and designs, some smooth, some made of a satin material, some textured and all very inviting for little fingers. I love all the different designs that the Taggies have on them. There is one with cute little doggies and another one with ducks on and then there is the Taggie with all the little swirls on it like streamers that you find on most Taggies products.
This blanket is now a firm favourite of my little boys and one I recommend.
