    positive review  These blankets are absolutely lovely. I bought 2. One for myself and one for my mum for us both use with my new daughter. They are perfect for using with the car seat in these cold winter months. They’re so soft and they keep my little one nice and warm whilst we’re out and about. Communication was quick and the turnaround in receiving the blankets was fast. There are so many colour choices and the added extra effort given in them being washed before being sent is very thoughtful. Im very pleased with my purchase ?
