AllyZabba Review and Giveaway

>> Tuesday, February 8, 2011

We didn't realize until we were on vacation over Christmas break that my one year old was seriously attached to his blankies in his bed. It didn't help that he was sleeping in a new unfamiliar place, but I didn't even think to bring his blanket, nor did I want to pack the huge thing. (My daughter never had any attachments except for her binkie, so I wasn't familiar with the blankie or toy attachments some babies have). The only thing I brought with us even somewhat close to his blanket was an old burp cloth. But when I gave it to my son, he fell asleep within five minutes. An old burp cloth was the last thing I wanted my son to carry around and sleep with over vacations, plane rides, and other excursions, so I wanted to find him a little snuggle blankie that would provide him comfort and help him sleep. I found out about AllyZabba and the super soft blankets they made and was able to try the Aloha TravelZabba. The TravelZabba is a smaller version of their regular sized AllyZabba blanket. It is 16" x 14", so it is PERFECT for traveling, car rides, and for my son, something for him to snuggle to sleep. As soon as I pulled the TravelZabba out of the package, my little buddy grabbed it and held it up to his cheek. It was love at first sight. It is so very soft! Okay, I'm not going to lie, it is THE SOFTEST blanket I've ever touched. This is a little embarassing, but I seriously love it and want to snuggle with it just as much as my son does. It's not really my size though, which has me thinking I might need to get the adult-sized MegaZabba for myself. {With my son carrying it all over the house, there was a day that we didn't know where it was for like 5 hours, and I seriously was so sad about it...for myself, more than for my son. Embarassing, I know.} My daughter even tries to steal it whenever she gets the chance.


My little guy is kind of funny...he doesn't want a big blanket on him when he's sleeping, but he wants to "hold" a blanket and snuggle it until he falls asleep. The TravelZabba is PERFECT for him. Here's my little dude with the TravelZabba the second day we got it. He snuggled for few minutes and fell right to sleep. So cute.

Nap #2



So a little more of the details: Each AllyZabba blanket is handmade with one silky satin side and one super soft plushy side. Think minky, but a billion times better. The plush side has a raised rosette pattern to give a little texture without taking away from the buttery softness. AllyZabba makes their blankets with one silky side because babies and especially newborns, love the feel of silk against their skin; it is very similar in texture to the lining in the womb. A doula wrote in to AllyZabba, "You've got this one right. A silky blanket is one thing I tell new parents that they actually need for thier newborn." Wow, right? If only I would have known this when my buddy was just home from the hospital and it was IMPOSSIBLE to get him to go to sleep and stay asleep in his bed. AllyZabba blankets are high quality and luxurious little snuggles for babies, toddlers, AND adults. They are sure to become the favorite lovey!

My little guy has to have a SOFT (preferrably minky) blanket to fall asleep. That's why one of AllyZabba's would be perfect for me to win!

My little one doesn't really have something she NEEDS so she can fall asleep, but she really likes 2 things. She likes to hold a toy ball in her hand to fall asleep (it falls out when I know she's good and asleep!), and she likes to have her stuffed animal her daddy bought when she was born for her, in her crib.

Jake and Lauren February 8, 2011 at 2:45 PM  

My daughter now can't sleep without a pillow and, of course, the ONLY blanket she will sleep with (it was mine when I was a baby)

My son got a turtle from Kohls that goes with one of the Eric Carle book, he's 100% attached to it now. He's 2 1/2 years old and it's his first thing he's attached to. I find it so adorable to watch him play and sleep with it.

Up until 2 weeks ago, my daughter HAD to have her pacifier to go to sleep. She's 2 1/2 now, and finally gave it up, but doesn't nap as well as she used to. So maybe something like this will help her! meganrinke {at} gmail {dot} com

My son has yet to show attachment to any stuffed toy or blanket, but to go to bed, he usually is holding a water sippy cup and has his musical seahorse on. He's 18 months, btw!
