Blankets for Kids
What is a normal size kids blanket?
The size of a kids' blanket can vary depending on the age of the child and the intended use of the blanket. However, a typical size for a kids' blanket is around 50" x 60".
This size is suitable for older children who have outgrown baby blankets and need a larger size for snuggling or covering themselves while sitting or lying down. For younger children aged 4 to 7 years old, a smaller blanket, such as 36" x 50", may be more appropriate.
It's important to note that some children may prefer larger or smaller blankets, so it's always a good idea to consider the child's size and individual needs when selecting a blanket size. For more information on sizing, see our blanket size guide.
What are some factors to consider when choosing a kids blanket for a gift?
When choosing a kids blanket as a gift, there are several factors to consider to ensure that the gift is well-received and appreciated:
1. Age and gender of the child: Consider the age and gender of the child to help narrow down your options. For example, younger children may prefer brighter colors and playful patterns, while older children may prefer more mature designs.
2. Size: Consider the size of the blanket, as it can affect the blanket's versatility and how long the child can use it. Choose a size that is appropriate for the child's age and development.
3. Design: Consider the design of the blanket, as it can affect the blanket's appeal. Choose a design that matches the child's interests and personality.
4. Purpose: Consider the purpose of the blanket. Will it be used for snuggling on the couch or for outdoor activities? Choose a blanket that fits the intended purpose.
Can kids blankets be personalized?
Yes, we offer custom blankets where you can add the child's name or initials to the blanket along with the print and ruffle color. Personalized blankets can make a great gift for a child's birthday, baptism, or other special occasion. Gifting a personalized blanket will make the gift more special and memorable.
Is minky fabric a good material for kids blankets?
Minky is a very popular material for kids blankets because it is soft, plush, and cozy. It is a synthetic fabric made of 100% polyester, which makes it hypoallergenic and durable. Minky is often used for baby blankets, but it is also great for kids of all ages. It is easy to care for and can be machine-washed and dried. Minky blankets come in a variety of colors, patterns, and designs, which makes them a fun and stylish addition to any child's bedroom.
