Softest blanket ever! Cricket and Monkey!

Thanks for coming by from the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival!








In earlier posts I've been talking about Abby's Mr. Bunny (read here). She falls asleep while rubbing the back label. Well, we have another ritual now, it's not only Mr. Bunny she wants, she also wants her blanky.
It's about this blanky I want to talk to you.
I was send a super soft chocolate/pink chenille blanket by Cricket & Monkey. The same blanket (different color) Tori Spelling got for Liam (I'm a huge Tori fan).


This is a company that focuses on quality products that are not only fun and fashionable but also very practical. And on top of this they make everything here in the United States.
Karen Stein created Cricket & Monkey when her grandson was born and she couldn’t find anything she wanted to buy. She has successfully created a baby line that stands out from the rest.  She is a proud grandmother of two whose nicknames are, what else? Cricket and Monkey.

You really need to have a look around, they don't only have the coolest diaper bags, they also have very nice blankets, play-travel mats, and a lot more. I also love the leopard blanket, see below.

I was so happy when we received the chocolate/pink "bubble dots" blanket. It really is the softest blanket I have and I wish I had known about it when Lisa and Jamie were born. The blanket is 100% polyester and machine washable, which is very important to me as Abby also takes this blanket everywhere.
So now Abby sleeps with this blanket while she's rubbing Mr. Bunny's label.  The below picture was taken this morning just after her morning nap. (notice her holding the label, she does this when she's tired). 
The blanket is 28X33 and is big enough for her to sleep under. She sleeps in a sleeping bag and then ends up hugging her Bunny and her blanket.

Karen of Cricket and Monkey has very generously offered a $25 Gift certificate towards any product in her store!!!
Now for a chance to win, you can do any of the following:
* one entry: head on over to Cricket and Monkey, let me know what you would use your $25 on.
* 2nd entry, become a follower of A latte in the morning (current followers, you can also still enter) and let me know in a separate comment.
Deadline for this giveaway is 02/08/09. Winner will be emailed and announced here on the 9th of Feb.
Thanks Karen!!
