Lovely design but materials a bit cheap and a few other niggles.
on 7 April 2014
Bought this for a plane journey with my 3 year old. From the moment it arrived in the post he loved it and wanted to use it straight away. The design idea is great - it is easy and slim line to pack and a fun and friendly character for your little one to love BUT I on the other hand was a little dissapointed.
Firstly I was shocked to find the blanket inside is a totally different yellow to the pillow which makes the set look old before you've even used it - like the pillow has been out in the sun and the blanket has been packed away. Secondly the pillow is made of a very soft snuggly material and the blanket is made from a very cheap fleece material - you can get extremely soft fleeces 4x the size for £3-£5 so I don't know why this frankly expensive blanket feels quite rough to the touch. What a shame to poorly execute this lovely design idea like this.
I have given 3 stars as I have to say my son doesn't seem to mind the feel of the blanket and shockingly as a 3 year old boy hasn't commented on the different colour of the items ;O) So although I am a little annoyed that this isn't a luxury item (as to me it has a luxury price tag) he likes it and in the end that is all that matters I suppose.
p.s. I haven't seen any of the other designs so it is possible they don't all have these flaws - if you are still feeling inclined to buy maybe try a different design and hope for the best.
