Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 1, 2010
Mister Bee. Teetee. Comfy Cuddly. These are just some of the names of baby blankets that happy customers have shared with Blankie Keeper. A popular baby gift, Blankie Keeper™ is asking everyone to share the name of his or her baby blanket to enter the “Meet My Blankie!” contest.
All who share their baby blanket’s name will be entered in a drawing to win a set of Blankie Keepers™ (small, medium and large). Drawing is scheduled for July 1, 2010. Blankie names submitted for the contest will be shared on Blankie Keeper’s blog (http://BlankieKeeper.blogspot.com).
“Usually when a child gives a name to an object, that object becomes a permanent fixture in that child’s life,” said Blankie Keeper™ inventor and mother of two Leslie A.M. Smith. “Blankie Keeper™ was developed wholly on that premise—children want to keep their favorite blankies. Children name their baby blankets all the time—they personify them, the baby blankets become like a friend. With a Blankie Keeper™ a child can keep his or her blankie forever.”
Blankie Keepers™ come in three sizes. Smith designed them to hold a small receiving blanket, a throw-size blanket, and a large Blankie Keeper™ that will hold a thick crib quilt.
“The baby blanket is just folded and then placed into the Blankie Keeper™,” Smith explained. “The blankie does not need to be altered at all. Once inside, the stuffed Blankie Keeper™ looks like a pillow.”
Smith founded Blankie Keeper™ in 2008 after making the product for her own daughter who did not want to give up her baby blanket even though it was shredded and coming apart in the wash.
“I think I made her a Blankie Keeper™ when she was four years old,” Smith shared. “She still sleeps with it and she’s 10 now.”
