The Sunshine Blanket :: Product Review
This particular picnic blanket is so much more than a picnic blanket. We put this blanket to the three-year test. It’s been carried and used at soccer games, the beach (numerous times), on picnics, camping and on hiking excursions over the years. It’s been borrowed by friends and relatives and held up (remarkably well in our collective opinion) to the kid test.
We can honestly say this little blanket really is everything it says it is. It truly keeps your seat dry – one of the most important things to consider when purchasing a picnic blanket. The PVC underside keeps moisture and dirt away while the soft polyester fleece is super comfy.
We found the blanket to be easy to carry and store which is great when carting around kids to soccer games or other outdoor events.
After three years of wear and tear and travel, after more unfolding and refolding than can be counted, after being washed (more than once) in the washer AND placed in the dryer (which the care directions tell you specifically NOT to do), the Sunshine Blanket we’ve owned and used for three years is just beginning show signs of use. The PVC backing is starting to crack a little, most likely from putting it in the dryer and one edge is a bit frayed. Not bad considering it belongs to our super busy, on the go family and it has definitely not been handled gently.
This blanket gets a really big two thumbs up! Love it and highly recommend it.
