About the JJ Cole Essentials Blanket

It's time to take an inventory of all the things you'll need for a fabulous summer spent outdoors. Do you have a cooler? A beach umbrella? Swimsuits? Flip-flops? Water wings? Sand toys? A ten-gallon bucket of sunblock?

 

And a picnic blanket! You can't do summer without a proper picnic blanket, and the JJ Cole Essentials Blanket gets the job done in style. The Essentials Blanket is the perfect landing pad for the park, the beach, Little League games, summer concerts, backyard barbecues, and any other activity where kids will need a place to sprawl out.

 

The JJ Cole Essentials Blanket is made to go anywhere – the durable outer layer can handle any surface, from grass to sand to concrete. The inner layer is tough enough to take a beating from boisterous children, but it's also soft and thick enough to lie down on (and waterproofed to keep you dry if the ground is damp). And when mud, barbecue sauce, and melted popsicles go on the offensive, the picnic blanket's water-resistant lining wipes clean.

 

When it's time to go home, this sturdy outdoor blanket folds up compactly, and handy creases make folding it a simple and speedy process. A detachable carry strap makes it a breeze to carry around, too. Measures 5 x 5 feet – plenty of room, so invite everyone along!

Its the best!

Pros:

Easy Assembly, Sturdy, Weather Resistant, Attractive Design, Hours of Fun, Durable

I ended up buying this blanket sight unseen online- and have grown to love it. I have used it as a playmat at playgroups, at the beach, at the park, at friends houses that have pets, and it always comes away clean and unharmed. Easy to shake out any crumbs, pet hair, sand etc - it has a great carry shoulder strap and is easy to fold and go. I also love that it is weighted enough that the wind doesn't blow it all over the place. I wish they made it in an even bigger size - I would buy that too. This one is ample for a family of 3, or organized family of 4 - anymore and its too small.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

must have in the car!

Pros:

Sturdy, Attractive Design, Weather Resistant, Durable, Hours of Fun, Easy Assembly

I keep in this in the car always. Great for an impromptu play at the park, beach, and also at friends' yards. Clean up is really easy, it's attractive and folds up quickly, even while holding the hand of a squirmy toddler.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Great Outdoor Blanket

Pros:

Easy Assembly, Sturdy, Durable, Attractive Design, Weather Resistant

This blanket is great to take with or to just throw on the lawn for a little outside time. It is easy to use and refold. The fact that it has a built in travel handle makes it easy to lug around.

best beach blanket

Pros:

Attractive Design, Sturdy, Weather Resistant, Durable

Cons:

A little heavy

I know this is supposed to be for kids, but I use it ALL the time. It's awesome for taking to the beach, outdoor concerts, the park,.... it's big enough to fit several people, is weatherproof, and keeps you clean from sand and dirt. Oh, I also like the easy to carry design. You can put it right on your shoulder, freeing up your hands.;)

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
