Day 7 founder and designer, Myra Harder was kind enough and brave enough to offer a few select members of The CWA Review Crew (including me) a free Whales Tale Baby Blanket in exchange for our honest review.
We are so very excited at Prey Species to be expecting our second child, a little boy, in early December and my family and I were delighted to have the opportunity to review this beautiful baby blanket in anticipation of the birth. The fabric is incredibly soft and the pattern beautiful. We would highly recommend this blanket as a potential gift for Christian parents of little ones! Now, the only challenge is that we may have to get another as our daughter, Itty Bitty (pictured left) is already enamored of the Whales Tale Baby Blanket 🙂
The Whales Tale Baby Blanket features an original fabric design with smiling blue whales frolicking among stars. The verse from Psalms 23:3 – “He refreshes my soul, He guilds me along the right paths” offers a message of encouragement and love to our little ones. The double sided blankets are luxuriously soft enough for a newborn, yet at 28″ x 34″ are large enough to fit snugly around a toddler. The blankets are 100% plush polyester fabric and can easily be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle and tumbled dry at a low temperature. Per the designer, the blankets should not be bleached, ironed, or dry cleaned.
Day 7 designer, Myra Harder described her inspiration for her work as “a desire to wrap God’s love around each person, and let them find a soft place to rest.” Wrapping my daughter in the Whales Tale Baby Blanket, I feel Myra is well on her way to achieving this mission. The blanket is soft and warm with a minky backing that provides a wonderful sensory distraction for little hands. Having the word of God readily available as she goes down for a nap provides me great comfort as I rock her to sleep.
Itty Bitty is 15 months old and although, she is a fan of the beautiful whales and stars, she is particularly enamored of the beautiful, soft, minky backing. If we wrap her in the blanket, she will flip it over and trace the “bumps” on the back. As shown below, she spends quite a bit of time exploring the textures of the blanket.
The Whales Tale Baby Blanket is a favorite for Bedtime!
…………………..and for Playtime!
