GooseWaddle Blanket Sets (giveaway closed)

Rather than bore you with too many details about my worst grocery store visit ever wherein my toddler screamed up and down every aisle AND dumped a new container of goldfish crackers all over the floor in front of the orange juice.... I'm going to introduce you to something lusciously soft and sweet and cuddly instead...  (and there's a giveaway at the end)

GooseWaddle Swaddle Blankets:  

Fairly new to the market, I've not seen these new luxury blankets out in stores yet, so I was super excited at the opportunity to review them!  

Penny got a set of GooseWaddle(tm) products in the mail this week, including a white swaddle blanket and little blankie.  

They came packaged up with yellow ribbons tied off with little goose-feet.  My first thought was how cute they would look in a baby shower gift basket.  

When I unwrapped them I was seriously impressed with how luxuriously soft they are.  Like, surprised; I kind of expected it to feel just like other "soft" blankets, but no.  Seriously soft.

I washed both blanket and blankie before giving them to Penelope, and was pleased with how the material retained its fresh plush silky texture after drying on the drying rack (it says not to put in the dryer).  

I've not used Penny's blanket for swaddling (unfortunately my 18-month-old doesn't like to be restrained in any way) but she likes to clutch it and hug it to her cheek like a stuffed animal, or put it on the ground so she can lay on top of it.  It's adorable.  And I love knowing how soft it is on her sweet toddler skin.

I really like the clean look of these solid-color blankets.  It's like they're so soft and high quality that they don't have to prove anything with patterns or embroidery or other noisy designs.  

If you're interested in learning more about this new company, be sure to also check out their Buy 1, Give 1 Campaign where they donate blankets to babies in need.  It kind of gives me the warm and fuzzies (pun intended).

Win a Set:

I'm so pleased to offer one lucky reader a blanket set ($90 value) for his or her favorite little one!  Enter to win one for your own bundle of joy, or use it as a gift for another mama or mama-to-be.

How to Enter: simply leave a comment on this blog post with the color you would like (pink, blue or white) and a way for me to reach you if you win.  That's it, you don't need to share this post or follow anyone on social media or vote for anything.  Just a comment will do.  Make sure you're at your computer, comments don't typically come through from mobile platforms including the iPhone (annoying, I know).  

I'll draw a winner at 4pm (in Arizona) on Valentine's Day.  I'll put the winner in touch with GooseWaddle and they will ship a blanket set to his or her front door.  Yay!

Good luck!
