My 2 year old son loves all the SkipHop Owl products. He cuddles with it because it is soft and just the right size to carry around. We haven't used it as a blanket yet because he likes it as the Owl.
It's soft and a good size for infants and kids of all ages. It's cute to look at. Portable.
One complaint is I washed it for the first time with other baby clothes and blue fuzz was everywhere.
Be aware and wash separately. By itself! :) otherwise very cute blankie for travelling or at home.
