THE PRIZE

TUFFO PICNIC BLANKET

One reader will win a Water Resistant Blanket from Tuffo!

MY REVIEW

Summer just isn’t summer without a handful of picnics, and a picnic blanket is a very handy thing to have!

tuffo picnic blanket

Tuffo’s water resistant blankets measure 54″ x 84″ which is a perfect size for Mom, Dad, a couple of kids, some food and games. They have a variety of  10 prints to choose from and each has a cotton fabric on the top of the blanket with a comfy middle layer of batting and a water resistant nylon backing to keep your bums dry. The whole thing folds up and fits into a neat little carrying case that has pockets for all your necessities.

tuffo water resistant picnic blanketWe keep our Tuffo blanket with us always and I find myself using it almost every day. I try and take the kids outside for at least a few minutes every day, and baby and I sit in the shade while Elliot paints with water or does “walk chalk.” The grass in the shade is always a bit damp, but that’s just fine with our water resistant blanket. It’s so nice to be able to lay baby down on the blanket where he’ll be comfy and dry so I can play with Elliot for a little while.

Great for picnics, the beach, or just playing games on the grass, Tuffo water resistant blankets are machine washable, sturdy, and ours has made being outside with our newborn much more convenient. They’re affordable and handy to have around during the summer!
