This past weekend in NY was everything I had been hoping for since the Polar Vortex broke a few weeks ago – it was sunny and warm, the perfect weather for outdoor play. Of course after such a long winter with so much snow, and a lot of rain to start out our spring season, our lawn and other grassy surfaces are still water-logged a bit. While that can get messy, I’ve got a new piece in my outdoor play kit that can help us anytime we need a little barrier between us and mother nature – a neat waterproof blanket from Luv Bug.
We received a Water Bug blanket in Aqua/White Chevron from Luv Bug for review. I love the design and style of this blanket, it’s great for any age and stage of your little ones. I can see it as a great blanket to lay out for a newborn while outside or a neat little sitting spot for older children to stop for a snack or a rest. This blanket is so lightweight and folds up quite small, so it’s great to throw in a diaper bag, a purse or to keep one in the trunk of your car for impromptu outdoor play. The fabric is comfortable to sit on and water just rolls right off of it. This would be a great blanket to bring to the beach, you can just rinse off the sand at the end of the day and throw it back into your bag! My five-year-old is into cloud gazing lately and had no problem making himself comfortable on the blanket over the weekend while we were outside. As you can see, this blanket is the perfect size for the toddler/young kid crew. At $49, I think this is a great investment piece that will grow with your kids and that you’ll find so many uses for – I’m already seeing it’s usefulness for outdoor soccer games and 4th of July firework watching! It comes in a variety of designs to fit any style and I think a Water Bug blanket would make a great baby shower/new baby gift.
