Super soft

I received this blanket as a gift for my daughter. It is super soft and cuddly. It is nice and warm to snuggle her with. It washes well.I am very pleased that we received this item as a gift.

I love this blanket because it is so soft and plush. It has not held up to repeated washings though- it pills very badly and the little fuzzies get stuck to everything it touches. luckily I purchased 2 when they were $11.99 on amazon… I’m going to try washing the other one separate from my other “gentle cycle” laundry to see if it pills less. update 9/10/2012 it did not pill any less when washed on it’s own. they both went in the trash- they weren’t even salvageable as dog blankets!

Bought two, one for daughter, other as gift!

I bought this blanket for my daughter in December of 2010 and it is still like new! I have not had any issues with piling. In fact, it is just as soft as the day I bought it. I used it during the cooler months as a blanket to cover her car seat, during nap time, and also to just cuddle with. It was so nice and soft I bought one as a gift and it was well received.I was folding it today and came back here to see how long I have had it and can’t believe how well it has held up. I wash in cold water with dye free detergent and fabric softener. I then use fragrance free dryer sheets on a low setting. It keeps it like new!

Super soft

This blanket is super cuddly and soft. After wash it is still soft and warm for baby. I would recommend this as a good buy. The length is great too!

Love love love this

Bought one of these antd I loveeeee it. The size is great and the quality. I got exactly what was in the pic. It is very soft but I thought it would have been a bit thicker, but that’s okay, this can work for me. I wished they had different colours with the same bear so I can order more. I will be ordering my rest of blankets in the future from Cater Brand

The perfect blanket

I ordered this for my six-month old, and he absolutely loves being wrapped up in it. It’s as soft as anything you’ve ever felt, and it’s also just the right thickness.

Nice blanket

Blanket is soft. Baby likes the way the edges feel bI don’t much like the color it seems “muddier” in person

lover it!

Supper soft and comfy! I love it and my boy loves it too. Found a minor defect(pulled stitch) but wouldn’t stop me from liking it.

So cute and soft

What an adorable baby blanket. So soft and cute. Can’t wait to see the new baby wrapped up in this warm blanket. This price was too good to pass up for a lovely baby shower gift.

Pills a lot!

I agree with the other reviewers that this blanket is cute and very soft, but it washes horribly! To say it pills is an understatement. I’ve taken a sweater stone to the two I purchased, and a week later I was right back where I started. This blankets leave lint all over my boys’ clothing and their shoes – not fun. Wish I’d heeded the pilling reviews and looked for other blankets for day care.

So soft!

The blanket is super soft. Instead of purchasing a “bed in a bag”, we are purchasing plush blankets and matching sheets instead. Can also be used for swaddling and strollers. Can’t wait to use!

Love it!

Great gender neutral blanket that is soft and cuddly! The little ears pop out and is sooo cute! It is also a very good size blanket, basically shawl sized. Good value for the price I paid.

So soft and cuddly, I send this blanket to daycare every other week, and it has been washed many times! Holds up really well!!

So soft and sweet

I purchased this blanket for my son quite a few months ago. It is so soft and continues to be soft after many many washes. It is neutral for boy or girl. The face is embroidered so it won’t fade and the ears give little one something soft and safe to chew on.

Great blanket

I have been using this blanket almost daily for 5 months, it washes well. It’s thicker than most of the blankets I looked at.

Natasha Wheeler, IL

Love it!

Love this blanket. It is very soft and warm and keeps the baby very comfortable. Excellent buy! We are happy with the purchase.

Selena Virden, IL

So Soft, I want one for myself!!

I will be buying more of these blankets, for the price the quality is absolutely amazing. I would easily pay twice as much for this and still be satisfied!You won’t be dissapointed if you get one, thats all I can say! It is very soft, and adorable 😉

Tia Burnside, PA

Beautiful and Soft!

This blanket is perfect for fall/winter/spring. It is incredibly soft and a decent size. The color is a little darker than shown, it’s more of a tan color than beige, but I think it looks better!Great buy and you can’t beat the price.

Another 5 stars for Carters.

I had a bunch of babies coupons to use on amazon and we needed new blankets for our 16 month old daughter and for the baby due late summer. I bought several carter blankets and they all have been fablous! They are so soft, so cuddly and warm. My daughter just loves them. I ordered some in pink and the rest in gender neutral because I don’t know the gender of our second baby yet.

Soft but sheds

Been shedding no matter how many times I wash it. Now the one side is completely covered in lint balls.

Carters always

I bought this Bear blanket for a baby shower and it’s beautiful and excellent product like all Carters Brand. I’ll buy more very soon.

A comfy blanket

Soft and comfortable blanket, however if you are looking for something that also looks very cute than you should not get this blanket, as it looks quite simple!

i do not know why some leave bad reviews but i was soo happy i bought the first one for 6.99 then i felt unhappy when the price went up, i bought my second one last week and it arrived within 2-3 days very fast shipping no prime.about blanket: this blanket is only loses its fur when it is in contact with evenflo car seat… so i do not use it when i am out and about i use carter boa blanket. both me and my mother in law love this blanket because it is not thick like the sweet baby its thick and we can hardly wrap the baby with it…we love this cause it is think but it keeps the baby warm no matter how cold it is outside, when i touh the baby he is always warm when i touch him especially since we have to put him in the sun and our downstair is always cold about 67 degrees witht his blanket he was able to keep warm. i wished they have it in different colors. it took me a while to buy the second one was not because i am second guessing, i really love this blanket more than the sweet baby blanket that other reviwers left on this reviews, because when it arrived it smelled like gasoline even though it is thick but i can not wrap the baby around and it’stoo long the dimension is not equal it makes the blanket looks wierd. i was really happy when i bought the second one because i was patient enough for it to go on sale again at 6.99 next time if it goes on sale again i mite buy it again even though my child already have 6 baby blankets xUPDATE:: I washed this blankets many times now, its soft. and afforadable when i bought this for 6.99, its soft and thin but its really warm
