Cuski Swandoodle Blanket and Lovie {Review & Giveaway}

*Mommy's Obsessions received a complimentary Swandoodle and Lovie for review in exchange for our honest opinions*

Cuski is a brand that many have yet to hear of, mostly because they are based over in Europe! They have been quickly gaining popularity over in the U.S., especially by moms who already have what I call a "swaddle addiction", also known as a strong love for brands such as Aden + Anais and Swaddle Designs. Word around the Facebook pages is that Cuski swaddles are to die for, so I couldn't resist trying one out for myself! 

The Cuski Swandoodle is a bamboo muslin blanket (which is a heavenly combination) that measures 55X55 and makes the perfect blanket for mom or dad to cuddle up with baby under! The Cuski Lovie is an adorable little lovie made of a terry cloth material that is not only cozy for baby to snuggle with, but will easily absorb their drool too! They're soft, cuddly, safe, and completely machine washable! Baby will have a new best friend early on thanks to the Cuski Lovie!

(As from their website)

"Cuski was created to provide parents with a stylish, natural and compact alternative to dummies or bulky blankets. Made from the softest natural cotton, Cuski is simple in design to help stimulate and develop your baby’s imagination.

The sense of smell is important to infants and help them to feel secure and loved. Cuski absorbs familiar scents that reassure your baby.

To help your child to bond with Cuski, mummy or daddy sleeps with it on the first night to transfer their comforting scents to its super-soft material."

Ever since I can remember I have always been obsessed with blankets. Even on the hottest day of summer you can find me curled up with a soft blanket while on the couch or at night. I have an extra blanket that I sleep with every night for extra warmth and the cuddle factor. Yes, I admit, I am a big kid! Like me, Little Mister quickly adapted a love for blankets as well, having three that he has to have in his bed every night, and another three that he asks for if he doesn't seem them in his bed. I truly hope that when it comes time for Little Boy to take to something, he loves his blankets as much has his big brother and his mommy do, because I have been introduced to a new brand of blanket that is absolutely amazing. The Cuski Swandoodle.

Calisson, Inc. and Cuski were generous enough to send me a Lucky Saurus Swandoodle for Little Boy and I fell in love with it from first touch! The Swandoodle is made from a bamboo rayon making it extremely soft and cuddly. It has a muslin weave to give it the ultimate texture and it is huge, measuring 55X55! What I love most is that Cuski doesn't just advertise the Swandoodle as being a multipurpose blanket for baby, but that it is a multipurpose blanket for mom as well! Whether you use the Swandoodle as the ultimate cuddling blanket for your little one, or use it for yourself as a nursing cover, you can rest easy knowing that the Swandoodle can be used for tons of purposes even after your child or yourself no longer need it for the original reason you purchased it! 

I have a soft spot for dinosaurs and I absolutely adore the Lucky Saurus print, and I love it even more because Cuski added an extra color of dinosaur in the print! Rather than just repeating the same color dino across the whole blanket, they put two colors in which I love!

Isn't the blanket huge?! It is perfect for snuggling up on the couch with and I can't wait for Little Boy to be here so we can snuggle this winter!

In addition to the Swandoodle, Calisson, Inc. was also generous enough to send me one of their Cuski Lovies! We received Blue-ee and I just adored him when he arrived! The Cuski Lovie has a very soft texture and is easy for little hands to grasp and hold onto. It is made from an ultra soft terry material so if/when baby drools on it and/or sticks it in their mouth, it will not ruin the fabric in which the Cuski Lovie is made from, and it is completely machine washable! It is available in six different colors, all of which are beautiful and perfect for baby to cuddle with!

I have fallen in love with Cuski products and I cannot wait for Little Boy to arrive so that he can love them too! If you're a fan of blankets and lovies for your little one, I highly recommend that you check out Cuski for yourself!

  1. I like the purple color.

  2. Creamie is my favorite.

  3. I like "Minty" color and also the cute Lucky Saurus you've shown in your pictures. I could easily see how this could become a favorite for both baby and Mommy if she sleeps with the blanket and it gets her scent on it. I may tell her to do that now for her little one she is having trouble getting to sleep all night. But this would be wonderful for the new little brother due in December! Good review. I can see why you wanted to try these. They look fabulous!

  4. Purple is my favorite, so I guess that would be the berry color.

  5. Minty is my favorite color lovie

  6. Green is my favorite color, and the minty is such a pretty shade, that it's got to be my favorite. I also think the Lucky Saurus is adorable!

  7. I love the lucky saurus
