My little girl has an addiction — to a soft little blanket in the shape of a rabbit. Courtney actually got it for her when she was born and two years on, she is still addicted to it. I am not sure if it is the material, the shape or the size, but there is something about this little Angel Dear soft blanket rabbit that she absolutely loves. To be fair, in Paris, kids are encouraged to have a special soft toy or blanket (‘doudous’) to bring with them to nursery.
The problem with the Angel Dear blanket is that it is only available in the US and I am not the most organised person in the world — we are now on blanket number 7. I finally have two spare ones, courtesy of my lovely friend Petra who sent them all the way over from Miami.
The moral of the story is: Make sure your child gets addicted to a doudou that is easily available in your country, so you can replace it without too much trouble if it gets lost. If not, it is a huge pain. If you are, however, in the USA, do check out the Angel Dear collection. They are a lovely baby shower/birth present. They even have a two and a spare pack which I think is a genius idea.
