I hate cold rain. More than just about anything. I like snow. I like warm summer rains. But now more than ever, now that I spend massive amounts of time pushing a small, sweet, cold-prone person through the streets of New York in a stroller, I hate cold rain. Welcome to November in Manhattan. Try not to get poked in the eye by an umbrella.
Gals from Seattle know a little something about cold rain. Fortunately, two of them had a rugged idea–they created a weather proof blankie that ties to your stroller and keeps that sweet little bean warm and dry. Sadly, you will still get drenched and chilled to the bone pushing her to the Children’s Museum. But hey, you can take it. She maybe can’t so much. And you can always stop for a pumpkin spice latte on the way home.
Rugged Idea Blankies are not only weatherproof and snuggly (they are made from layers of fleece and ripstop nylon), they are adorable. I love the ricrac. I love the bright and cheerful colors that really pop on a cold gray day.
But these are far more than stroller blankets! They come in three versatile sizes and can be used for changing pads, play blankets, boat blankets, beach blankets, picnic blankets, and for snuggling in front packs, back packs and car seats! The Big Weatherproof Blankie will even cover your twins in their double stroller!
So buy one for the cold rain and then stay inside and picnic on the living room floor, instead. Warm snuggles and a toasted bagel while you “camp out” under two chairs draped with a fleecy blankie? That’s something baby’s just gotta have.
