Little Unicorn Outdoor blanket

The Little Unicorn Outdoor Blanket

Growing up in Idaho, I got very used to the harsh winds and freezing temperatures that came with the winter months. Winter always seemed to last forever, and I often longed for the nice temperatures to return so I could open a window to let in the cool fresh air and smell the flowers blooming. Now that I live in Nevada, the temperatures are already beginning to rise, bringing all the fun that comes with it! Little Unicorn outdoor blankets are perfect for all those upcoming outside activities!

As a little girl, springtime meant my brother’s outdoor soccer games. Now that I’m a mom, we love to get outside the first chance we get for a nice picnic in the park. No matter what plans you have for spring and summer, a nice outdoor blanket is a must. Before finding Little Unicorn, our family would always take a massive, thick quilt to lay out on the grass to keep our bottoms dry. However, the quilt would OFTEN get wet or spilled on, and grass would cling to it, filling our car with enough yard clippings to fill ten Easter baskets. It was a pain to wash in the washing machine because it was just too big and took forever to dry. A few years ago I found out about Little Unicorn’s outdoor blankets. After one use, we were hooked. 

The Little Unicorn outdoor blanket combines convenience with functionality. The smooth, water-resistant material makes it easy to wipe off. With little kids prone to spilling juice boxes, this feature was a lifesaver for us. On wet grass, the blanket creates a barrier rather than absorbing the moisture, keeping you dry like it should. But my favorite feature has to be how easy and compact it is to fold. I no longer had to struggle with our old massive quilt to fold it, keep it together, and haul it back to our car where it would take up half the trunk. The Little Unicorn outdoor blanket folds into a compact size and velcros shut with a convenient carrying handle and shoulder strap. This allows you to have both hands free to hold your child’s hand, carry a diaper bag, or push your stroller. And even better, the folded blanket exposes a large zipper pocket, perfect for storing any extra essentials like wet wipes or napkins! 

Although it’s marketed as a product for families with young kids, this outdoor blanket makes the perfect gift for any outdoor adventurer. For grandparents, newlyweds, parents-to-be, or college students, this outdoor blanket will be an unexpected and exciting gift to receive. With Easter approaching quickly, it would also make a great gift to get you ready for the warm days ahead!

Even if you live in a cool climate, days filled with outdoor play and picnics in the park are not too far off! The Little Unicorn Outdoor blanket is truly a trunk necessity for every family, compactly stored and convenient to carry along on any adventure.
