#MMHALILLYANDSID: In praise of great baby blankets…

BADGE2Our junior columnist Wild Hendry tells us why the Lilly and Sid baby blankets got his vote…

Wild writes “I am four years old now and I still have a baby blankie on my bed. So does my brother, who is two. It’s the same one he came home from hospital in. My brother likes to snuggle under his, but I tuck my fox called Bubble up each night in mine, in case he gets a chill.

IMG_00003111Our blankies are from Lilly and Sid, who make all sorts of good things including hoodies and rabbits and tshirts with pirates on. I could go on about blankies being soft and warm but you might know that already; what you might not know is that they can be used as flags when you need one for your den, or to wrap things up when you are playing at having birthdays, or picnic rugs if girls come over and want a teddy tea party.

I start school in September so will probably have to stop taking my fox Bubble with me in my bag like I do for nursery. But I know he’ll be alright, tucked up on my bed, waiting til I get home…”
