I wanted a medium weight comforter-like throw for my 2.5 year old son's bed, and this is it! He's still in a toddler bed, so twin-sized blankets are far too large. I like that this feels like a good comforter-- woven cotton, not fleece or velour, etc. I tried a thermal blanket before, but it was a little too lightweight and sometimes my son would nap on top of it and wake up with "waffle face." I also like that it's lightly filled, but not especially stuffed, which is fine for our California bay-area nights and his warm pjs. My son and I also both like the navy color. I washed it in warm water and dried it on medium heat before putting it on his bed. I haven't had to wash it since, but it looks great after a month. If in six months it's ratty and falling apart, I'll try to re-review and update my comments.
