A blanket with a head?

Could someone please tell me what these are supposed to be used for...



Every time Izzy receives a gift, one of these goofy blankets are in the box. Porgie never received any of these things. Is this a really great gift for little boys? I am confused. Izzy doesn't have the slightest interest in playing with these things. And they are too little to actually be used as a blanket. Could you please shed some light on this strange gift idea? I am perplexed.

LOL! My daughter is 5 and still has a collection of these blankies...there suppose to be like little woobies. My daughter would hold the blankie while sucking her thumb to put herself to sleep at night.

My first DS has 3 or 4 of them but never took to them...he's a straight forward kind of kid he wants a blankie AND a stuffed animal/lovey NOT a combo.

i have sooo tried to get beans to love on these.

no luck.

i think they scare her.

i mean really a head attached to a blankie??

Dooneybug said...

Yeah, misguided mommy is right. They're lovies. People love to give a gift they think the child will make his or her lovie and treasure forever and ever. Except the thing is, you can't really force a lovie. Kids pick their own!

Already answered before I even read the question lol. We put one on our registry (I think it was a giraffe head though) but never got it. She picked a couple stuffed animals that she's attached to but she doesn't sleep with them. She has such a hard time falling asleep that we're trying putting one w/ her but so far it hasn't seemed to take & I've wondered if one of those would have been better for her.Oh well lol.

Eva said...

Yeah, a lovie. But it's totally random what they pick to fawn over.

LOL! I was wondering the same thing... Cole got one that was a blue elephant. I didn't know what to do with it so it's sitting in the basket on his changing table...

NOW I KNOW! It should go in the crib?

I have the bottom one....they must be cheap. Weird way to teach anatomy of animals to kids.

Oh aren't those things just GREAT? (Detect my sarcasm IMMEDIATELY!!!)

They are like little "let's PLAN to get attached to something". That seems like such a wonderful plan huh?

I think these are supposed to be a comfort to baby. We got some as gifts for the boys when they were born, but they didn't like them so they went to the local charity shop. Some other baby has got them now!!!

Love Amanda x

I tried to get Eliza to take one as a loevy but she didn't bite. Oh well. Maybe the cats will like them.

Dana said...

i had blankies like that when i was little! they are so cute!!

Melain said...

Strange. Perhaps you could use it as a drain plug?

Chas said...

Looks like you already got your answer...they are something to snuggle with. My aunt has two small children, and this was her son's favorite when he was a little baby.

Cristina Mathers said...

i always thought the exact same thing!

Claudia said...

Woobies. That's what we call them. Comfort blankies. Kids like soft things and some want a toy/blanket. My daughter loved hers. ;)

Not So Perfect said...

Ha ha ha I had no idea, so that's what they are.

Greg said...

HA!! We also recieved one of these. I had no clue what it was for until I looked at your first comment. Now it makes sense, even though Ellie still hates the thing:)

Mommy Mechanics said...

Both of my boys are blankie kids, and they love to hold the blankets right up under their nose while they sleep. My oldest didn't care for them much but my little one loves his.

OK, finally catching up on some reading...and no, I have no idea what these freakin' things are. I do know that we have--or had--a bunch of them too. No idea where they went. None of us has missed one of them.
