Wee Rascals Review and Giveaway!

I stumbled across Wee Rascals, a Canadian company, and I am so glad I did! I can't tell you how many times I have thrown my receiving blankets out of frustration. Any of the ones you can buy at Target or Walmart are just too small! My son was 8 pounds 14 ounces and 22 inches long. He was and still is a very LONG child. He never stayed in those receiving blankets! I have dreamed and dreamed for a bigger one and Wee Rascals answered my prayers!

Wee Rascals was started for the very same reason I needed it! A mom of twins was frustrated that her babies grew out of their receiving blankets! Her mom, a seamstress with 30 years experience, made her some big ones and voila! They also sell sleep sacks that I bet are just as luxurious as the receiving blankets!

I was sent an extra large receiving blanket in the luxurious organic cotton buttercup color! This is a light yellow color and is very gender neutral. I have said time and time again that organic materials just feel so much more awesome and they really do! There is just no comparison! I have had people doubt me and I make them do a feel test and they are changed! I am in love with this blanket. It is soft and so huge compared to what you can buy anywhere else! They really are on to something here!




You can buy non organic versions of the extra large receiving blanket in a cotton flannel blend for $9.50 for a single blanket. You can also buy multiple packs(which I highly recommend!). I also love all the prints. The prints would be my main reason for buying a non organic version of this blanket!


The organic extra large receiving blanket is sold for $19.50. I know some of you think that is a huge jump in price for something organic, but for me this is a no brainer! No chemicals or pesticides used and they are amazingly soft guys!! You can buy these in chocolate, buttercup, pink, blue or natural colors. Chocolate and natural come in a 70% bamboo/30% cotton mix.

The sleep sacks look just adorable! You can purchase these in organic versions as well and I know I totally will be once I have my next baby!! These come in the same organic colors and vary in price depending on size! You can also buy them in the classic fleece versions with patterns!

Other amazing items sold on their website? Taggie Blankets(SOOO adorable!!), Double Thickness Receiving Blankets, Crib Fitted Sheets, Crib/Bassinets Fitted Sheets, Play Pen Fitted Sheets, Changing Table Pad Covers, Stay Put Bibs and more!!

Everything they sell is reasonably priced and I can tell from the receiving blanket, very high quality!

Make sure you get the right size by checking out their size chart here:
