One of my favorite ways to relax and rejuvenate is to curl up on the sofa with a good book, a cup of tea, and a cozy blanket. I’m a sucker for bedding, in general, but especially blankets. As someone who “runs cold”, it is my belief that one can never have too many blankets. We have lots of blankets, quilts, afghans, etc. at our house for just that reason, though admittedly I have a couple that are my own personal favorites, and so does my husband.
When approached to try out something from chic Polish brand, La Millou – Parents Pride, I was immediately drawn to the cuddly looking blankets, though they have several other noteworthy products including the best-selling Grandma Dana’s Hen Nursing Pillow.
I received the BLANKET W/FILLING – L -INDIAN ZOO – TEAL in size Large. The blanket is not only beautiful, but expertly detailed in the stitching, and the filling is simultaneously light and fluffy yet warm. One side of the blanket is an ultra-silky, plush polyester (called “Minky” on the website. Isn’t that a great word? Describes the texture perfectly too) and the other side is patterned in a smooth and super-soft cotton.
La Millou products are vibrant and imaginative, while still adhering to a strong design-focused aesthetic that will be sure to please parents and children alike. My initial thought was that we could keep this reserved for when Little J transitions to a “big girl” bed, because it is the perfect size to be a quilt on a toddler bed, but that will be a while yet…I’m sure she won’t mind if I break it in for her- just a little 😉 It’s become my go-to blanket for cozying up!
