DISCLOSURE: I was provided a product sample by Bright Eyes Blanket for this post, but the opinions expressed are my own. To learn more, please review my disclosure policy here.
Like many kids her age, Brielle is really into learning about life and the everyday items we wear and use. She knows Daddy’s hat goes on his head and shoes go on our feet. She likes to comb mommy’s hair or wash her hands when we’re doing dishes. It’s just a really observant age.
I took the above photo of her a few weeks ago when she was interested in my hoodie. We’ve since put her in her own hooded sweatshirts and while she’s really into pulling out her hairties and taking off hats, a hoodie she’ll wear.
Imagine my excitement when I was contacted by Bright Eyes Blanket, a plush blanket character with Glow in the Dark eyes from the makers of Snuggie! They’re soft blankets with cute animal heads and little pocket areas for hands to keep warm. You can see in the original photo at the top of this post how she was instantly drawn to it, giving it a hug while still in the package – something she completely decided to do on her own! Upon opening it she was really interested in the face, where we went over where the eyes, ears, nose and mouth went.
She even laid down to give it a snuggle.
While she’s obviously a little young for this size, its still fun to put on an walk around like you’re a panda bear! I only wish the paws had actual hand holds to put your hand in to be the panda. There is only a small triangular pocket to slip your hand in but the paw part itself is attached separately. Otherwise, this was a super cute blanket that she now calls her own.
