Unlike the rather disappointing Club Penguin Reversible Blanket, this Club Penguin Puffle Fleece is actually rather good. It's not widely available at present, and despite being a Disney item, it's not available in the Disney Store. We got ours from Play.com with free delivery for only £5 a few weeks back, and sadly for you guys - that price has now risen to £9.99! At that price, I think they're pushing it a bit.
The fleece blanket comes rolled with a cardboard wrapper around the middle to hold it in place. You'll likely have seen the sort of packaging style I mean in shops with other kid's characters on them. There's no shrinkwrap or outer packaging other than the thin cardboard strip, so for hygiene reasons, I think this needs washing when you receive it like we did. Size wise, this is a standard single fleece blanket like you get in plain colours for £3 in Tesco or Asda, or with Ben 10 or Disney Princesses on for a couple of pounds more.
Even before it has a wash, the blanket feels nice and soft. The material is a little bit on the thin side in my opinion, but not so thin that the blanket won't provide any warmth. As with most character fleeces for kids, this blanket is about the right thickness and size to use as a bed topper, snuggle blanket on the sofa, or for use in the car when they need a bit of warmth on the go.
The design is very eye catching and colourful, and the print includes bold, bright colours that made the characters instantly recognisable and appealing to the grandson when he initially received this. The Puffle design is spread out a little across the blanket, so that no matter what heap it winds up in, you can see a Puffle or two on display. A large area of the blanket is plain white / cream, but not too large an area (see photo above).
Over all I think this warrants a four star rating based on the price I paid of £5. If I'd paid the full £10 current price for it, I think I'd have gone for three stars though. It's quite snuggly and soft, but a little on the thin side. The design is very eye catching and colourful, but it is just a plain print like the other character fleeces you see in the el cheapo shops are. At the end of the day, this is yet another opportunity for Disney to cash in on their popular Club Penguin brand name.
