just received this in the mail today and threw it in the wash. baby seems to like it, but we’ll see how much. full disclosure: this product is made In shanghai, china. also, it was definitely not in a gift box. it was attached to a cardboard. the monkey itself is quite small…but I wasn’t really expecting to use it as a blankie…but more as a teether. it’s about five inches by five inches. the face is really cute…cuter than the picture given. the product is very well- made. I don’t prefer the fabric itself…it feels like a velour or velvet, but as long as he likes it, I’m happy.
Baby LOVES his Lovie
I agree, I like that it’s made with all natural dyes; since our 4 month old loves to suck on the monkey’s ears. I love the blankie b/c when he is fussy, I can “trick” him into relaxing before bedtime (vs when I try to start with the pacifier he knows I’m getting ready to put down which usually leads to a crying fit). My niece and nephew have the miYim chicken rattles and both kids cling to them at night as well. So for all three babies, miYim blankie or rattle has been their choice in comfort bedtime toy…. much to our surprise.*** The only downside is you SHOULD expect all of the miYim products to fade*** There doesn’t seem to be a way around it… but I hand wash ours and my sister throws hers in the washer with the other laundry; so ours has faded less than hers.
Good but smaller than expected
It is a good product, just that it is a bit small. I like the knots at the end though, which my son likes to gnaw on to.
Great for Environmentally Conscious Parents!
For anyone concerned about what their child will be putting in his or her mouth this is the lovey you want. It’s the perfect size for tiny hands to grasp, cuddle or chew on. It’s wonderfully soft too so babies will enjoy the texture.
Very cute, some styles hard to find- color fades!
I love these and have bought 2 different styles (the bunny for one daughter and the monkey for the other). Some of the styles can be very difficult to find, but it is worth it. I wanted organic lovies for my girls because i knew they would be spending lots of time with them, in addition to putting the lovies into mouths. they adore the lovies and sleep with them, chew on them, and carry them everywhere.the only downside (not that it mattered much to me) is that because they are organic and dyed "naturally" the color will fade with the very first wash and will continue to fade until they have a very washed-out look. the bunny started out dark pink and the monkey a rich brown … now they are both beige and have been that way since the 4th or 5th wash. again, this doesn’t bother me that much, but you should know that if you are buying specifically for the color it probably won’t stay that way. my girls could care less what color they are 🙂
Nice natural soft toy
Cute blankie, I love that it is made of natural materials. It is a bit on the small side, so it is definitely more of a soft toy and not a blanket.
Super cute and soft, and baby loves it
Super cute and very soft. 100% cotton body and head exterior (the stuffing inside the head is now polyester). And my 6mo old baby loves it – falls asleep every night with it (gnawing it or rubbing it on his face – pediatrician said it is fine since it is cotton and so thin), and has trouble falling asleep without it. Can’t ask for much more. So pleased that I found this item to buy instead of the polyester/synthetic lovies!——UPDATE: About 6 weeks and multiple washes later, and it still looks brand new. Washes very well (I wash on cold with other baby clothes, and then let hang dry .. in a pinch I’ll machine dry until damp and then let air dry the remainder of the time). We got the Miyim frog lovie as well, but baby just doesn’t love it as much as the monkey (I guess he was already too attached). I guess we’d better stock up on some more monkeys and start rotating them in and out in case we ever lose one!!——UPDATE: My son is now 19mo. old and has now slept with this lovey daily every night for over a year. Actually we have six of them and rotate them in and out. He LOVES them and is super comforted by them. We recently transitioned him to daycare, and having these were critical to his transition. Overall they have washed well and have been easy to care for. We machine wash on cold & tumble dry on low, and they are still in great shape. They show some slight fading (colors not as bright as they used to be), but they just look a little more loved.I know some people have expressed disappointment that this company chose to switch the filling from cotton to polyester. They say they made that decision in order to make them machine washable, and after owning them for a year I think this is a worthwhile trade-off. We have one of the older cotton ones, and five of the newer polyester-stuffed ones. The padding in the older cotton one is very stiff & densely packed, and it takes a long time to dry. The newer ones dry easily in a single dryer load and are much softer/more compressible when baby sleeps on them. Although I was initially concerned about the shifty to poly, overall I am pleased with the shift as machine washability and softness are critical for an item like this. If you are dead-set on no synthetic materials (including filling), then this is not the right choice for you, but in my mind it is the best lovey on the market.
It is a very cute blankie. The fabric is very soft. I love the fact that it is made of organic material.
