Our Analysis

This 100% PolyMicrofiber Chenille blanket with satin border washes easily in cold water and is very cozy. Babies and children bond with the luxurious material instantly. The size is just right for snuggling and holding tight. A little pricey, this Little Giraffe blanket makes for a scrumptious baby gift that moms and their babies will treasure for years to come.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:

  • Super soft and luxurious material
  • Easy to clean (in cold water/gentle wash cycle with a pat dry)


User reviews frequently note these disadvantages:

  • Not big enough to fully wrap around a toddler, but makes for a great security or snuggle blanket

We love this baby blanket, but want to highlight the American Academy of Pediatrics Guidelines for Prevention of SIDS which advises to avoid using loose pillows, blankets, and baby bumpers in baby's crib. We recommend this blanket for use outside of the crib, and for supervised use only with infants.

For example, many hospitals have stopped using baby blankets and have replaced them with sleep sacks which are considered safer.
