GO-GO Blanket's Story
GO-GO Blanket's story began in 2007 on a blustery winter evening, with a cold grandchild. After a day at Mimi and Papa's, the grandchildren enjoyed a nice, warm bath before the car ride back home. To Mimi's surprise, they were wearing only their pajamas as they were being secured into their car seats. No snowsuits! No jackets! No blankets! Thought Mimi while the car heat was pumping, but she was shocked and concerned. Her daughter had explained to Mimi and Papa that federal guidelines for car seat safety dictate that the straps should be only one finger's width from baby, toddler or child. Simply leaving no room for bulky winter outerwear and traditional blankets tend to just slide off onto the floor. Of course, Mimi understood the safety issues, but she thought "what about the cold?" As they drove home, Mimi could not stop thinking about this dilemma... there MUST be a better solution. 
Mimi woke the next morning with the answer! What if the blanket had sleeves so it could go over  the safety straps, but still be held into place with the child's arms through the sleeves? This would be like wearing a coat backwards, only it would need to be much more comfortable and easier to get on and off. With this idea swirling in Mimi's head, she went and bought a traditional baby blanket, cut off one end, made some sleeves and attached those sleeves in holes she had made. She was not quite sure about the size, but she did her best. When she showed it to her family, there weren't so convinced at first. They didn't think the blanket would stay on with out a fastener or ties, so she put her new blanket to the test. After lots of miles and many trips with children of different ages and sizes, using both car seats as well as strollers, she learned that these blankets did stay in place... perfectly... every single time! Upon discovering this success they learned of an unforeseen advantage! Baby's hands are now free for pacifiers, toys or whatever else as well as the ease of putting the blanket on and taking it off.
After five years of being used by family and friends the GO-GO Blanket has now been patented and available to all! Your baby will be safer and cozier then ever before.

So how exactly does the GO-GO Blanket work?
Once you've secured your baby in their car seat, you just simply slip baby's arms into the GO-GO Blanket sleeves! Then tuck in the sides to keep your little one nice and cozy all around. GO-GO Blanket follows federal car seat regulations. Simple as pie for your little cutie pie!

Eight adorable patterns to choose from, which is your favorite?  

Our Monkey Business GO-GO Blanket!
Of course I chose the Monkey Business pattern, I am after all the mom of three little monkeys. It is adorable and super soft! This is definitely a nice cozy on the go blanket for any little one! Cade doesn't like when we have the windows open in the van, even if his window isn't open he still complains about the wind, he is able to use his GO-GO Blanket to block some of the wind. He loves and always needs a blanket when we are in the van, but he often drops it and it is a bit hard for me to reach it most of the times. With the GO-GO Blanket he doesn't drop it because he is wearing it.
