JJ Cole Essentials Blanket
We received our JJ Cole Essentials Blanket as a surprise gift from an out-of-town friend after our daughter was born. We absolutely love it!
We’ve used it at the park, the beach, the zoo, in our front yard, festivals and I’ve even laid it out at an indoor playground (you can never be too careful with those germs).
It is convenient, durable and compact. We keep it in the rear cargo of our SUV so we can bust it out whenever we need to. It folds and unfolds very easily. I can literally do it single-handedly while holding my daughter. It’s also very easy to clean.
Because it’s water resistant, you won’t get a damp derriere from sitting on the grass or mud. During the summer, we would sit on it in the grass while my daughter played with the water hose. The water would pool and it created a mini “splashpad” if you will, which delighted her for a good hour at a time.
I get compliments and asked about where I got it all the time. All in all, I think it’s a great item to have on hand.
