I waited, not so patiently, for my package to arrive. The day that it came, I tore into the packaging like it was Christmas morning! It was beautiful! The colors so vibrant. I opened the protective plastic covering, oh, the softness!!! The Whales Tale blanket from Day 7 is amazing!
I let my children (5,2,&1) feel of the soft fabric. That was a BIG mistake! The fight started on who the blanket belonged to! They loved the softness and the bright colors. The older two talked about the whale. We read the Bible verse that is printed on it:
"He refreshes my soul, He guides me along the right paths." Psalm 23:3
I love the idea of praying scripture over my children. What better way than to wrap them in it!
My sister-in-law is expecting a little one in January and raved about how beautiful the blanket was! (can we say baby shower gift!)
The blanket is 100% plush polyester. It is double sided:
The front is decorated with this beautiful design!
The back comes in your choice of 3 colors: White, Jade, or Teal.
The care instructions are to wash in cold water in the gentle cycle, tumble dry at low temperature. NO bleach or dry cleaning. It has held up very well to being washed and cuddled by my 3 children! I think it is the perfect gift for new little ones!
