Happy Blankie Review

Ever since Monkey was little he has been completely attached to his stuffed dog named Jake. He sleeps with Jake every night, every day during naptime, and when he was smaller Jake went EVERYWHERE with us. I hate to hear about children that don't have something to love on during the night when they are sleeping, and when I hear about companies that donate "lovies" to children in need it makes me so happy!
 About Happy Blankie:
When David Holdridge was just 7 years old, he had a really good idea. He wanted to combine his sisters two favorite things, stuffed animals and blankies, to create something that would make the world smile. David’s idea inspired the whole family, and soon Happy Blankie was born. The first creation was Giggle the happy pig, an adorable animal faced piggy blanket with a huge cheek to cheek smile. Soon after, Giggle was surrounded by her favorite friends: Stomp the happy frog, Tumble the happy bear, and Chase the happy dog.
David knew his Idea was great because when anyone felt (or saw) a happy blankie, they had a smile a mile wide. Then his mom Emily had a second great idea – give a blankie away to a child in need for every one they sold, and let kids choose where they wanted it to go. Thus, ONE to love, ONE to Give became the core philosophy of Happy Blankie. So now David and his family are making people happy two blankies at a time! 

Happy Blankie was wonderful enough to send Monkey "Chase the Happy Dog" for him to love. From the minute that I took the blankie out of the box Monkey wanted it in his bed at all times. He always wants to sleep with his head on it and snuggle it close. The Happy Blankie is so well made and very soft and cuddly. It is perfect for something that is going to be snuggled with night and day. 
  • Small approx. 18” X 18”  (security size: newborn – 2 years)
  • Medium approx. 36” X 40” (perfect for nap time, car trips, any time! newborn – 6 years)
  • Large approx. 48” X 56” (newborn – 75+ years)
  • *Please note that all sizes vary slightly by animal design.
 Blankets are available in 6 different animals. You can get Chase the Dog, Giggle the Pig, Stomp the Frog, Tumble the Bear, and Love Blankie, and their new Rumble the happy elephant. They are also coming out with a Tiger, Monkey, and a Hippo. 

The thing that I love about Happy Blankie is that for each blanket that is sold, a second one is donated to a hospital or orphanage for a child in need. They are making kiddos happy two blankets at a time!!
