I could say so many wonderful things about this blanket. Let's start with I love how gender neutral it is. I bought mine for my daughter. Her room is more pink and princess but It has an adorable pattern and it's so soft. I bought it more for comfort reasons. It keeps my daughter warm and keeps her all snuggled up. I can swaddle her so easy with this blanket. She doesn't get good sleep with out it. Now let me just say this blanket has been through hell. It's been pooped,peed,and puked on. It's been stepped on,pulled on, and drug in the dirt. It's been through the washer and dryer so many times and it is still bright colored,non stained, and no rips or tears. It it still so soft and its not any thinner. It Is not too heavy either. It has so much life still left in it. It'll probably last a good five years. It relatively cheap but definitely worth it. It's probably even worth more than I paid.
