An excellent choice for my baby's first birthday! I am pleasantly surprised by the plushness of this blanky. The density of the fabric (thicker and more fluffy than expected) should lend itself to nice durability. The "silky" borders are a bit wider than a standard blanky of this size which is also a plus for us as that is the favorite part for my little one. After just a few days we are quite pleased with this purchase. Pros: - The softness of the blanky is only exceeded by it's fluffiness. I also love that there is a coordinating pillow. Cons: - It may be a bit too think for those who prefer a light blanky.
