I don't have babies, but lucky for me, my friends do. I get to cuddle them, and then give them back. It's really a great arrangement. I knew when I was asked to review a Play Blanket from Oilo that I would have no trouble finding babies to test it with. My plan was to bring the blanket to the Moms' group I attend and ask each of the mamas with babies to test it out and give mini reviews.
But before I was able to put that plan into action, I had occasion to try out the blanket myself! I brought it to my husband's softball game. It was the perfect size for me and my two kids (and a big bag too). The durable canvas side kept the dampness of the grass away for the duration of the game. I was also impressed with the blanket's construction. There are no loose threads, and all the seams are hidden and appear to be very secure.
The other side of the blanket is soft cotton sateen. Smooth enough for a tiny newborn to lay on, I'd say. I really like the size of this blanket. I don't think I'm the type of mom who would carry around a play blanket for my babies all the time, but if I knew I was going somewhere to sit outside, have a picnic, etc, it's the perfect size and weight to throw in the bag on the way out the door. I believe it will get a lot of use this summer at the beach. As for babies, little C played on the blanket for a lot longer than I expected, given that he has just learned how to crawl. I think he liked it!
