aden + anais Adult Blanket
March 22, 2013 2:30 pm | by

If you’ve been following our blog for any real amount of time, you already know how much I enjoy aden + anais products. I own a set of Bamboo Muslin Wraps that are exclusively mine that I wear as scarves and use when traveling. A big jar of mum + bub Soothing Ointment sits on my bedside table. The B-Jeweled Muslin Wraps are the only thing that makes me smile when found scattered on my floor by the children. So take the following review with a grain (or whole shaker full) of salt.

For a long time I’ve joked around the Cotton Babies office that aden + anais needed to make linens for adults out of the awesome materials they use in their swaddles. The truth is, I never actually thought it would happen. I was thrilled when I saw the announcement and couldn’t wait until we received our shipment at Cotton Babies. Unfortunately, you all bought them so quickly, I had to wait until the second shipment arrived to snag an Ocean Edge Daydream Blanket.

Thankfully, the Daydream Blanket was well worth the wait. It lived up to and exceeded my expectations. Just like the Dream Blanket for babies, the adult blanket is made with many layers of the cotton muslin aden + anais is known for. This means the blanket has a nice, comforting weight but doesn’t leave you feeling hot or sweaty after a long period of time. What surprised me most was that after spending a couple of hours underneath it while watching an Audrey Hepburn movie, I could feel the chill in the air when I removed it. The Daydream Blanket does an amazing job of reflecting back your own warmth to keep you nice and cozy. It is also big enough to share, which is a requirement of any throw to live in our living room.

We’ve only had ours about a week, but it’s already the favorite of everyone in the family, including the dog. If the kids leave a variety of blankets or clothes on the floor, our dog will curl up on any aden + anais product first. It has been a fight to keep the new Daydream Blanket away from him this week.

The aden + anais Daydream Blanket is available in a bold Ocean Edge color or a neutral Circle Dance pattern to fit any decor. While it’s a higher price than I would normally pay, this is not just any old blanket on a store shelf. I’ve seen the quality of other aden + anais products, how they last wash after wash and year after year. So I have no doubt that this blanket could last a lifetime. I look forward to snuggling my children, building blanket forts and making memories under this blanket for years to come.

If you love aden + anais like I do, don’t forget to check out the other new products we just added: Hello Kitty Limited Edition Swaddle 3 packs, Hello Kitty Limited Edition Snap Bibs and mum + bub Ultra Gentle Lotion.

    I want one of these soooooo badly. With our financial situation, though, we can’t justify a purchase. I’ve been trying to save up rewards at my favorite retailers online to help bring the cost of one down and I’ve been keeping an eye out for a giveaway for one, though!
