What do you get if you cross a cuddly blanket with a cute puppet? A CuddleUpPet!
Freddy was sent one of Flair's new CuddleUpPets to try out. The cuddly, snuggly blanket includes a puppet head which can be operated by the child in play, or by an adult as part of a bedtime routine with the friendly animal reading a bedtime story!
Our CuddleUpPet animal blanket is an elephant design. The plush blue blanket is 28" x 39" and has a foot on each corner and a little tail as well as the fun, cartoon style, cuddly elephant head incorporated into the design. The elephant himself looks a bit dozy but quite friendly!
Freddy instantly took to his new cuddly buddy. He enjoyed snuggling under the blanket, making the puppet talk, cuddling the elephant like a toy and giving his trunk kisses! It is perfect for snuggling under to watch TV. He really loves his new toy as these photos show!
The CuddleUpPet can help make a bedtime routine for young children providing a favourite toy and cuddly blanket in one. I think it would take more than this to get my son into a bedtime routine, even with its sleepy eyes and cosy snuggling potential. However, it will make a good bedtime companion that can help a child feel comforted and confident at night-time.
It also makes a great travel companion for taking in the car. Freddy loves having a blanket in his car seat so his new elephant CuddleUpPet is just perfect for that job.
The puppet element of the CuddleUpPet adds a new dimension of interactivity. Fred loved it when I made his elephant 'talk' to him and he quickly worked out how to do it himself. Although his hands are a bit too small to control the mouth, he was perfectly happy making the whole head move and interacted with his furry friend in some imaginative pretend play.
It is a real novel idea to combine a toy and a blanket to provide cuddles, comfort and fun in one. Freddy definitely has given it a big thumbs up!
