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 :)
If you have seen other picnic blankets you know that most of them are tarp like. They are extremely thin, and either have a plasticy feel or are nylon. They are not meant to be cozy and cuddly. Some outdoor blankets have fleece on the top. Yes it will be soft BUT will grass and twigs and sand stick to it?? The worst thing would be to have a blanket full of grass and having to individually pick off each fiber.
This blanket is pretty great. It does have some padding (not a ton, but t's WAY better than feeling like you are sitting on a tarp.
Regarding it being slippery, I don't find that. When I laid t on the carpet it did feel a tiny bit slippery AGAINST the carpet but my 20 month old had no problem on it. On the grass and sand I didn't feel it as slippery at all. Maybe they have updated their product or maybe people were using the blanket inside?
Yes, the carry bag is just a piece of cloth with straps and Velcro. I find it works fine. I'm not sure how long it will last long term but it is great for now.
The blanket is very simple to fold up. Just fold in half over and over again until it fits. Super simple and easy to do. Because of the padding it does gather some air inside. I just squeeze it until enough air comes out so that it will fit. Again, no big deal.
Regarding the quality of the blanket I was a little disappointed. Paying around $35 you would expect good quality. There are numerous loose threads throughout the blankets stitching. Some are 6 inches some are much longer. I'm not sure if they just didn't trim after stitching or if it is already pulling. Either way I find that unacceptable based on the price.
I have not used the blanket on wet ground but we did use it in damp grass and nothing soaked through.
Overall I'm happy with this blanket. I will say that I saw something similar but thinner at King soopers for $15 so there may be cheaper ones that are about the same out there if you want to look. I plan to keep this blanket and I'm happy with it.
If it were a solid 7 ft x 7 ft it could fit two large adults and I'd have given it 5 stars.
- Sand shakes off easily
- Water resistant
- Machine washable
- Somewhat cushioned
- Easily fold-able by one person in medium wind
- Folding Instructions are over-complicated. Just fold it like you would fold any other blanket (in half, and in half again, repeat...) and it will fit in the bag no problem.
- Oblong (4.5 ft x 7 ft)
- The blanket and its carrying bag are not attached (I tend to lose things)
Cons: Well, I could only come up with one, but for me it was a biggie: when the material on top gets wet, sand sticks to it like glue. Only really excessive amounts will shake off, but the blanket remains coated in a thin layer of sand that can't easily be removed until it is dry. Not a problem if you only use the blanket in yard or at a park, but beware of wet little feet at the beach or you will be sitting in sand.
