Five Minutes for Giveaways Fun Prizes For Families

Li'L Inspirations and Lots of Love
Written by Erica
Did you have a blanket or stuffed animal that you were attached to as a child? I had a stuffed rabbit that I carried around with me everywhere. I remember even as a teenager I kept it on a shelf in my closet, because I couldn't bear to part with it.

I love watching my 16-month-old son snuggle with his new lovey, the Happy Monkey Security Blanket from Li'l Inspirations.

Made from minky and satin, it's perfect to lay his head against, while resting in his crib. It's so soft, I even catch myself sometimes rubbing it up against my face. It must be so comforting for him.

The blanket measures 23" x 20", making it larger than similar products you can find in stores - that seem to be the size of a folded handkerchief.

The security blanket can also be personalized with the child's first name, making it such a darling baby shower gift.

There are four adorable Personalized Baby Blankets to choose from. There's the Happy Monkey, Blue Puppy, Sleepy Lamb and Pink Puppy. My husband actually uses the nickname, "monkey", every now and then with our 16-month-old, so I just had to choose the Monkey blanket to review. I also had his name embroidered onto it, which truly is such a nice touch.

I was sent the Gift Set, which included a small monkey rattle with velcro closure. The rattle can attach to his blanket or stroller. I can also secure it around his ankle. Since my son is chewing on most everything these days, I love that both the rattle and the monkey on his blanket, have embroidered facial features.

The Personalized Security Baby Blanket Gift Set truly is unique. What a great keepsake for the mom-to-be or child in your life. We have one gift set, retail value $26.95, to give away to one lucky reader.

You will have your choice of the happy monkey, blue puppy, pink puppy or sleepy lamb. Your blanket can be personalized and there are several fonts and thread colors to choose from. Your blanket gift set will also come with a detachable rattle.
