I can't really can't sing the praises of the whole Taggie Concept highly enough. I was bought a Taggie blanket for my middle daughter when see was born. I gave it to her after a couple of months to see if it was of any interest to her and she took to it immediately and before too long had become incredibly attached to it. She simply adored it and it would sooth her when upset and she would also play with the tags until it sent her to sleep ... result!
Babies and little ones do seem to love tags and labels. They just seem to love the soft silky texture and it does seem to be incredibly comforting to them. With the Taggie range, they have taken this to a whole new level. A whole array of different soft comforting products completely covered in those soft silky tags.
My middle daughter became so attached that the Taggie blanket seemed to have to come with us everywhere and has done ever since. Conseuqently we are no longer on the original blaanket and have lost 2 or 3 along the way. This is the major downside with the Taggie blankets, for what they are, they are really pricey, costing between £13 & £19 depending on the size and texture you go for. I know you could knock up your own version if you had any kind of talent with a sewing machine but sadly I do not, so I had to swallow the hefty price tag.
Recedntly however while shopping in my local independant baby store, I spotted this Taggie See Me Rattle, it is a small fleecey soft padded rattle with mirror which also has the famous tags around the top. Costing £8 it was significantly cheaper than the full blankets. I decided to pick one up as I thought I could attach it to my daughters pushchair and it could live there permanantly to save us from having to take the blankets out with us anymore.
Well it was a success, my daughter loved the rattle and it was great to know that our big taggie was safe at home. Only slight negative was that she couldn't really snuggle it against the face to sleep, it wa more for comfort than snoozing.
