Skip Hop Outdoor Blanket is the picnic blanket (or rug) that carries easily as a messenger bag or backpack. It’s light, water resistant, and has an extrawide strap to make carrying comfrtable. Quilting and extra stiffness means the Skip Hop Outdoor Blanket also lies flat on grass or uneven ground. Heavy old tartan rugs are now obsolete.
Skip Hop’s design means the picnic blanket look very smart indeed. And it’s easily zipped up after use, and can be used as a seat cushion. The zipper is of the heavy duty non-jam type, and there are even helpful arrows on the fabric to make folding up a cinch.
An added feature is the blanket’s removable cooler bag. With the addition of a freezer pack, it guarantees cold things at beaches, parks, and outdoor cinemas. The cooler bag is also easily hung from a pram or baby stroller.
This is a clue to the Skip Hop company’s primary focus : they make high quality baby products. Which also explains why this blanket is machine washable, and made from BPA free wipe clean polyester and nylon.
In the words of Baby Bear, The Skip Hop Picnic Rug is “just right” for two people, and maybe a youngster. If the family dog’s small and well behaved, there may be room for them too.
Oh, and it’s Machine Washable !
