My baby girl is a security blanket child, more so than I have ever seen. She wants to take her blankets with her everywhere. The biggest problem we have is being on the go. Blankets get dirty and even left behind.
I took about a week pondering on the engineering of this one. I wanted something that is multi-purposes.
I started by getting a new Small Mooshka doll. My girls all love these kinds of dolls from a very young age. They are soft and my babies start talking to the faces as early as four months old. I think this is the sixth Mooshka doll to join the toy box.
I added two buttons; one inside the pocket and the other on the exact other side…
… and I added four button holes. This will allow for the multifunction I talked about at the beginning.
I also put in a velcro strap that can be unhooked when needs be. This allows it to be worn as a purse and reduces the risk of it being set down and lost.
This of course allows my baby to lounge around and nap with her doll and blanket together.
This makes it so she can walk around without the blanket dragging on the ground. This reduces need for washing and limits damage.
This function uses the button on the back and allows me to fold the doll up into a small tote for when we are out and about.
This function was perfect this last weekend on my husband’s Unit Family day. She was able to walk around and climb on equipment without losing her precious security blanket and any time she felt she needed support, her doll was right there.
My baby girl seems pretty happy with her Snuggle Tote. Totally worth the effort!
