L'il Monkeys Personalized Baby Blankets

Cimg0416_4I love personalized items for my child. Especially blankets! L’il Monkeys, from Port Moody, British Columbia, Canada, makes adorable personalized blankets with ribbon tags for babies.  And, yes, they will ship to the U.S.!

We checked out one of their sweet soft waffle weave fleece blankets ($57.30 U.S. dollars when I converted it to from Canadian dollars) in petal pink, personalized for a friend’s baby (see picture). The super soft blanket we checked out, was a roomy 29" by 40", perfect for laying out on a floor or carpet or to gently cover baby in a stroller.  When Abigail is older, she can even sleep with it in her crib.

The letters were multi-colored with lavender, sea blue, lemon yellow and lime green. The baby’s name had two i’s in it, which owner Andi Aizer dotted with yellow hearts. So cute!   I love the different soft ribbon tags on the top and bottom of the blanket. The letters were not sewn exactly straight, which only added to the charm of the blanket for us- you know it was handmade with love. Aizer with position the name anywhere you want on the blanket, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Names longer than 6 letters will be charged $3.82 for each extra letter, up to a maximum of 10 letters on a blanket. Blanket is machine washable and dryable, just don’t wash with velcro (it will hurt the ribbons). But you don’t have to remember that, Aizer includes washing instructions with each handmade blanket. If you want to make your blanket reversible, it will cost you $71.63 U.S..

They also make smaller, 11" by 11" Mini – Teething blankets ($23.87 U.S).  Personalized with  your baby’s first initial. You can even order a large blanket and a teething blanket as a set ($76.40 U.S.). Or, for a furry friend in your life, grab a blanket without ribbons ($47.75 U.S.) To see all your options, check out the order page.

Andi started making blankets while she anticipated the arrival of her twin baby girls, Emma and Alexis, in 2004. When her girls were born, they used their blankets everywhere – in their car seats, in the stroller….people started asking Andi where they could get a similar blankets and a business was born!

I am 6 months old and received one of these amazing blankets as a birth!day gift. I have to say that I was really impressed with how well the blanket was made and how warm and cozy it made me feel. Now that my teeth are coming in, I am having a great time chewing away on the tabs.

I hope you enjoy the blanket as much as I do (esp. my mum and dad!)
