Does your child have a toy or blanket that provides comfort and security? Over the years, our little ones have become attached to “lovies” of all kinds, including thumbs and stuffed animals. Our “baby,” Ingrid, has even started carrying around my nightgown for comfort because it is the one I nursed her in for so long!
And now Ingrid has another cozy friend, her Lara the Lamb Lush Lovie, from Jodie Podie, a mom-owned Canadian company. Jodie sent us this huggable friend in exchange for an honest review AND offered to give away a Lush Lovie to one of my readers!
The idea for her beautiful Lush Lovies began when Jodie became a mother for the first time. So many products she tried were cheaply made and fell apart quickly. “I wanted to surround my child with only the finest and I was definitely not willing to compromise on quality, so, I decided to start making my own. That was 10 years ago. Jodie Podie is a culmination of a lot of research, hard work, sweat and yes…some tears. It was a personal mission for me to source, produce and provide great fabrics and more importantly, to provide well made baby products that had some integrity in their manufacture. Jodie Podie is proud to offer Canadian made baby products to all parents who want to provide only the best to their little ones. I welcome you to Jodie Podie…my nickname dubbed me by my father when I was just a little girl.”
There are 3 adorable animal friends to choose from. Each Lush Lovie is made with two luxurious minky layers and an inner lining of 100% cotton batting. They are generously sized at 36×36 inches and are proudly made in Canada. Lara’s minky is made to resemble soft lamb’s wool. Dottie is a dotted minky and Connie’s is a cow print.
Spread out flat, our Lush Lovie is a warm and plush play mat for Ingrid. Did you notice that Lara the Lamb’s tail sticks out on the other side? 🙂 Jodie also had Ingrid’s name embroidered on the corner of the blanket.
Lara’s squishy lamb head is so nice to hug and squeeze.
The Lush Lovie weighs about 1 pounds, 9 ounces so it is heavier than a typical comfort blanket. Younger babies may not be able to carry it around as easily.
By the way, Ingrid is not the only one who loves her new blanket. Lara the Lamb gets everyone in a cozy mood. 🙂
Lush Lovies have many uses beyond a comfort blanket:
- Lap blanket / car blanket
- Stroller blanket
- Nap mat
- Play mat
- Doll blanket
Jodie recommends that you spot clean your Lush Lovie if there’s just a small spot or stain. With a bigger or more stubborn mess, you can machine wash on cold in the delicate cycle and dry on low. Lush Lovies will stay just as soft after laundering. They are extremely well made and will last for years to come, to be treasured by your child or perhaps even passed on to another little one.
