I had the opportunity to review a Monkey Blanket from Button Scraps. As soon as the package arrived my youngest child (1 yr old) took it as his. My three older children (8, 6 and 3 yr old) also love this blanket! It is the perfect size for infants and toddlers to snuggle with or have tagging along behind them! My youngest likes to use it to play hide & seek, peek a boo and to just cuddle with. Button Scraps has many fabric choices to choose from, we picked the John Deere Fleece. Very soft and comfy for a little one. Button Scraps places a variety of ribbons with different sizes, colors and textures which are great to help stimulate the mind. The craftsmanship of this blanket is very professional. Shipping was fast and communication with Desiree has been joyful. I highly recommend purchasing from this hard working WAHM!!!
