My daughter LOVES!
I bought one of these for my daughter's 11th birthday in 2008. It became her "special blanket" and she never slept without it! It has been through all of that, lost some of its rows, getting incrementally smaller and smaller, but always remaining comfortable and comforting. This year for her 22nd birthday, she requested a replacement. I have every confidence that it will last at least 11 years of constant use as well!
