This blanket is very, very soft material - almost like the many super soft dressing gowns that are out there. As a result...when you pull up the blanket on the bed, the blanket (which is less stiff than the interior electric cords), tends to slide on the cords and bunch up a bit around them. Nothing than can't be fixed with a bit of tugging...but I think this blanket will be fairly delicate in the care that it needs. It warms up a bit slowly (perhaps 7 - 8 minutes to full heat), and the control buttons to raise or lower the heat stick and often they need to be toggled multiple times to move from one degree of heat to the next degree of heat. I'm guessing that for its price, its not bad...but if you have kids...you may want a blanket that is sturdier for their rough and tumble lifestyle.
