Mr. Bobbles' Blankets Review and Giveaway!!!

Just a couple of months ago, we switched Kirsten from her crib to a full-size bed. We skipped the toddler bed completely, and now Kirsten really enjoys sleeping in the bottom part of her bunk bed. It took several weeks for this to actually happen. First we had to endure around three weeks of the girl who had never once climbed out of her crib becoming a girl who kept climbing out of bed, playing with toys, turning on the light, banging on the door, and yelling for us. It was exhausting! She called her bed "the perfect bed" but didn't really want to sleep there. So we started experimenting with lots of ways to make "the perfect bed" even more perfect. Perfect enough to (gasp!) actually go to sleep in it!

One thing that actually helped quite a bit was giving her a pillow, just like what Mommy and Daddy use to sleep with. Except hers is a smaller pillow, the Toddler-Sized pillow from Mr. Bobbles' Blankets. It's adorable! Just her size, covered in a really cute and soft fabric, and it even came with a matching blanket.

My list of awesome things about Mr. Bobbles' Blankets includes:
*They're a small, mom-owned business. I just love supporting those!
*They select high-quality, 100% cotton flannel fabrics in tons of cute designs for boys, girls, or gender-neutral prints and colors.
*Their blankets come in two sizes. . . standard and super-sized. The blanket that comes with the toddler pillow is super-sized and it's a great size for naps while still being lightweight!
*The toddler pillows are not as soft as a feather pillow, but not as firm as a "firm" pillow. They're just right!
*They can personalize them for you, too!
Mr. Bobbles' Blankets is offering a really great giveaway on my blog. . .
You can win a Toddler Pillow and Blanket set just like the one I have for Kirsten! You can choose any fabric you want from their whole list of fabrics. This set sells for $30.50! This would be perfect for your own toddler or as a really thoughtful gift!
