Diaper Dude Dude Blanket: Perfect For A Picnic

07/21/2009 at 11:00 AM ET

The Diaper Dude Dude Blanket ($54) is a water-resistant picnic blanket with a removable shoulder strap and a pocket that attaches with Velcro. It is ultra lightweight and is easy to fold back up–no road-map origami required.

The blanket measures about four feet by five feet and is large enough to accommodate my family of four. I leave it in the car and pull it out for picnics, soccer practice and concerts in the park. We’ve even used it as a back-of-the-SUV changing station or a bleacher seat cushion in a pinch.

Frustrated by other blankets’ poor performance in soggy conditions, I ran a faucet over this one and it never soaked through. Of course, it is machine washable, too.

On the Fourth of July alone, we used the blanket at a parade, a party, and the fireworks!

I was given this blanket as a gift. At a reunion, my 4 year old got sick on it and let me tell you, her sick slid right OFF! I only wish her clothes cleaned up as easily. I never worry about spills or kidlets flopping down on it sandy, damp or dirty. This blanket is aces!
