This is a great blanket! The back is a water-resistant material so you don't get wet when sitting on damp grass. The top is a soft cotton type material. The blanket is lightly padded to keep you comfortable from hard ground and small pebbles. It's machine washable. It folds up easily to fit back in the matching tote bag that it comes packed in. It's large enough to hold two adults, a baby and all of the baby's play things. I'm so glad I purchased this and I look forward to many years of use.
This blanket is a great size, easy to fold, and perfectly water-resistant. However, its top layer (quilted top) and bottom layer (water resistant material) are not sewn together. Every time someone steps on it, they slip. My two-year-old fell the first time he stepped on the blanket because the quilted top slipped right out from under him. I would have returned it immediately, but I have needed a waterproof blanket several times lately. I don't know if it's just a faulty blanket or if they are all this way. I'm unhappy with my purchase because it was more expensive than several other types, but I liked the look of it, so I spent the extra money. I'm so disappointed, not to mention [...]
Before buying this, I read many of the reviews, and a few people commented that it was not sew properly, and that the top slipped against the bottom, making it dangerous for young kids her might step on it etc. I am going to presume that they have made improvements since those reviews were written a few years ago, because the picnic blanket I received doesn't seem to have that problem. It is big and fits my family of 4 nicely. My kids (baby and toddler) don't seem to have any problems slipping on it, and it shakes off really well when covered in grass or dirt etc. I LOVE that it has a cotton top and not the regular flannel top that so many others have. EVERYTHING from grass to leaves to sand sticks to flannel picnic blankets, but this one just shakes everything off in a pinch. LOVE IT. They have also included the folding directions on the cardboard insert in the bag AND on a tag sewn to the actual blanket. A great little feature that makes it so much simpler to get packed up again. I'm very happy with my purchase. A great picnic blanket that I look forward to getting lots more use out of :)
Took this out and layed it on the carpeted living room floor to test it. My 1 yr old took one step and her foot shot forward so fast she landed on the back of her head. Thank goodness we were on the soft floor. The top padded cloth portion of this blanket is not connected to the bottom water resistant portion except on the sides. This means the top slips and slides with the slightest touch over the bottom. And it slides fast! Not safe for small children, as they usually step on blankets before sitting down. My 4 yr old slipped, but didn't fall down. Why chance it? Took it outside to see if being on grass made any difference, but no. It still slipped all over the place, therefore also causing the blanket to not stay flat if you plan to move at all while you are on it. I don't know why other reviewers like this blanket so much. Mine's going back. Too dangerous.
This is an excellent purchase! I was given one as a gift and took it to an outdoor concert with my husband and newborn and our friends who have toddlers loved it so much we bought them one for a holiday gift. It is terrific because the grass does not stick to it so you can shake it off and the backside is water resistant for that recently watered grass that everyone hates to put blankets on! Funny thing is, even wet grass does not stick to it that much! I love how I can fold it up into a carrying case and put sunscreen, etc into the side pocket. It also washes perfectly! I will be giving this as a gift for every new family!
I took this blanket to the beach. When we got up the ladybugs were printed everywhere on our bodies. when it gets wet, it sheds. After first laundry the leaves and ladybugs are mixed up and this blanket looks like a hell. For this money you can get a better product.
After visiting with 2 other mommies that had Tuffos, I decided to purchase one for our burgeoning family---Supercool! Lightweight, waterproof, many choices with pattern, love the carry strap thing. Kind of wish the straps were part of the blanket itself, but I understand that it would compromise the waterproof backing. Be careful when pulling off the mfc tag, can tear the stiches!
I was hesitant to buy this blanket due to all the Mom outrage over it being, "slippy". Yes, on certian surfaces (carpet or hardwoods) it does gather up and slip. I've found it satisfactory for outdoor use...which is what its intended for.
Its nice looking, the size is just right, and the baby loves the ladybug pattern. I find that most reviewers tend to be overly critical of products. I'm glad i bought it--I dont' think it's as dangerous as everyone makes it out to be.
This generously sized all-weather blanket can mean the difference between picnicking at the park on a wet-grass day or keeping your child cooped up indoors. The durable construction, water-resistant backing, and light layer of padding make it perfect for tossing down on the sand, campground, or soccer sidelines. Easy to carry around with its shoulder straps and storage pockets, the blanket folds up to a compact and convenient size.
Our unique and innovative, water-resistant blankets are ideal for numerous indoor and outdoor activities.
