Minky Couture Tween Blanket Sponsor Spotlight Review


I went onto Minky Couture's site and grabbed this Tween Blanket to give you an idea of what we are talking about today.  In the past I did review a small baby blanket but not a Tween blanket and from the picture it is hard to see the difference but there must be one for it to be called a different name. I thought this pattern was cute because of how they mixed the baby blues with the darker browns and some white added for good measure.
 
Actually, after I just went and got the measurements, I bet my blanket from awhile ago was also a Tween because here are the dimensions:  Tween (36" x 50") - $85.00.  And I am pretty certain that is what mine was.  Too bad I gave it away at a baby shower for a girl (it was pink and white) or I would have compared them side by side.
 
 
This is the one that I got to review, gosh, I don't have any idea how long ago it was! Seems like it's forever since then.  I love pink and white and the velour feel of the blankets are just amazing! You will want to get one for yourself! I wish I could have but we are tight on money right now while we wait to see if the Union is gonna strike or not. I can't believe that they are crazy enough to do it right here before Christmas!
 
This was the last color I liked, even though it has owls all over it, it still is pretty! My granddaughter loves purple and orange. Two complete opposites! But you have to admit, it is a pretty cool purple!
 
 
Lastly, look at this awesome Christmas themed blanket! Oh, how cute! You can decorate baby's crib right down to his Christmas Tree Minky Blanket! I wouldn't mind having one of these myself! What a festive looking blanket they made. Just wish it could cover the whole U.S. and unite us into one people helping each other out and stop this nonesense of pointing fingers all the time.  Wouldn't that be nice? But I doubt that that will happen.  They love to squabble too much, I think.
 
I hope I gave you some great idea's to think about and I do hope that you will go thru their shop and see what all they have back there that could light a fire underneath you and make you want to get one also. Gosh, the patterns and colors are totally awesome and you will have so much fun figuring it all out!
 
Found this under Fun Facts:
Bringing up 8.5 mil. results in google, “minky” (or “minkee”) has taken the world by storm. The fabric that was originally used to welcome babies into the world now wraps around adults, drapes across leather sofas, and comforts college freshmen.

With two spellings and thousands of fans, minky fabric finds itself in a world above all other fabrics. In terms of comfort, it triumphs over fleece with its thick, plush feel that provides unparalleled warmth. It climbs the charts in durability as its colors do not fade like many cotton fabrics.  
This fabric is being talked about for a reason. It is warm, durable and comes in a large variety of patterns and colors. Dotted minky fabric creates beautiful baby blankets, patterned minky fabric makes fun pajama pants, and solid minky fabric works perfectly for the backing of a minky quilt.

After first being used to make soft, cuddly baby blankets, minky fabric was used to make small stuffed animals, pillows, diaper covers, baby clothes, booties, car seat covers, shopping cart seat covers, bibs, burp clothes, and changing pad covers.  
At the same time that manufacturers were creating everything they could think of to warm and comfort babies, others took a look at bringing the warmth and comfort of minky fabric to children, teenagers and adults. Among these is Minky Couture.
