Stitching comes apart quite easily
The stitching has come apart in more than 5 places, once this happens there is a flow on effect, the beads go everywhere with in the blanket. Not a high quality product and not what you would expect considering the price’

Bamboo weighted blanket
nice size but the 15kg weight is way to heavy i don't suggest anyone getting that size even being a bigger person. Good pricing and good they have afterpay options as well.

Bunches like no tomorrow
All the stings that hold it in place broke off within a few days and now all it does is bunch up with the slightest movement. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Found the child's blanket too small and the adult one would be too heavy for the child so a bit disappointed but the concept seems good. Keeping it anyway and might order the adult one in the future. Disappointed at the size

Way to heavy for me
This wasn’t for me, it is way too heavy & I was waking up with a sore back everyday. So disappointed as I really wanted to see if my sleep pattern would change.

Like the weight
The weight is perfect. How ever there is to much movement in the filling even though I have tied all the ties probably. And often need adjustment. Deciding if I will get another style

Not all it is set out to be
Blanket has its faults, the weight can be mismatched uneven, when you lift the blanket it started to rip, showing that the quality is not as adequate as it claims, I have had this for less than a week and a hole is already present close to the opening of the blanket.

No confirmation email?
No confirmation email, no reply to my emails asking for confirmation, but still got charged for buying the blanket. Not sure how to get in touch with anyone to ask what’s going on.

Beautifully made but too hot and too heavy
Superb quality. I got the 6.8 kg, recommended for my weight, 63kgs. I've slept under it for 2 nights now. Found it pretty warm which surprised me as I fell the cold. I do have flannelette sheets on though. It's also really heavy, which I know is the point, and is why I bought it, but I found it too heavy. I had to take it off last night. I'll try it again tonight. I'm giving it 3 stars because of the quality.

The blanket is a very nice thing to have, the weight does feel nice. However, considering all it does is apply pressure (it does not feel like a hug), the price of the blanket is a bit much considering there are off-brand equivalents available. I purchased the cotton sheet that goes over the blanket. Its texture is nice and preferable personally to the original, however also not worth $50 since it doesn't stay tucked into the corners and requires regular readjustment if you plan to use the blanket a lot. A bit tedious if you aren't a person of a strong physique.

You have a fantastic product but to be honest it hadn’t made any difference to my sleep. I’m a light sleeper and was hoping to improve on this but not so :(

Not relaxing or calming - toes poke through it if used on the couch.
Don't get caught up in the hype, the blank is overly heavy and not calming at all. Your toes will also poke through the thing leaving you feeling dissatisfied. Save yourself some money and buy a good quality blanket elsewhere. Unclear and sloppy return process too. Disappointing purchase.

GOOD: SON STILL RESTLESS
My son is a very anxious, light sleeper! Forever tossing and turning and restless. I think he likes the feeling of the blanket above all- hasnt really improved his sleeping habit or helped with his anxiety! I dont think i will be upgrading when he grows out of the childrens range.

Really not for me
This was a horrible, suffocating experience for me. I am autistic, and I couldn't stand this at all - it made me feel crushed and struggling for breath. No words I can impart are strong enough to share how negative of an experience this product was for me (it absolutely entirely robbed me of a few nights sleep until I stopped trusting the reviews of other people and trusted in my own experience).
That said, the company paid for return postage (if I remember correctly), and promply refunded with no argument. So worth a go, if you think this *may* be your / your child's thing.

Do your research
The suggested weight was not right for me at all and I purchased this blanket under the websites guidance. It’s so heavy it makes my hips hurt and is unuseable.

Way too small to be functional
Info says the weighted blanket is not recommended for children under 2 years of age (completely understandable) yet the kids blanket is the size of a cot blanket. Far too small even for a 3 year old in a single bed. If we use it side ways in order to keep her body warm, her feet hang out. If we use it length ways to cover her feet, it’s not wide enough to keep her body warm.

More cons than pros.
I bought a minky and a bamboo weighted calming blanket in a two for one deal.
Pros - I like the weight, I do not kick my legs around so much.
My husband cannot just reach over for a cuddle so I sleep uninterrupted by him, but this is also a con.
Cons - They are soooo hot, no one in my family can handle sleeping with the minky blanket so we do not use it.
The minky blanket bunches up unevenly, which makes it hard to use, even while sitting on the lounge.
The bamboo blanket slides off me while I am asleep and I need to drag it up every so of...

Doesn't live up to the hype
Didn't live up to the hype. I love the concept of a weighted blanket being able to reduce anxiety and help me sleep but it did nothing. It was also quite small for the price.
Purchased in March 2019 at Online for $200.
Good but small
The blanket is lovely but it's small. Because of the weight of the blanket when I turn in my sleep the blanket does not turn with me. I overcame this by putting the blanket in a larger cover.

Sent it back
No matter how perfect the ties were and how much I tried to move it, the weight was never evenly distributed. I sent it back about a week later, I tried to get used to it but it didnt work.
Calming blankets has contacted me and tried to get me to delete this review so that they can have a streak of perfect reviews and I believe that this is incredibly unprofessional.

Not for me, but nice company to deal with
If I had it up over my chest I struggled to breathe easily and it felt as though I was have an asthma attack, which as anyone with asthma knows, provokes anxiety. I really wanted to like it, and tried in numerous nights, even just on my legs, and always had to take it off to sleep. I also found the ties inside the cover time consuming which isn't good as I like to kept dust at bay by regularly washing my bedding. I looked at returning it, but you are out of pocket for shipping back to them, so I'll just try to see if a friend wants it. very dis...appointed, such a waste of money. edit- The company saw this review and offered return shipping to them for free. They we professional and pleasant. This product wasn't for me, but the company has good ethics

Too heavy for me
I think I would really love a calming blanket but I got one based on the recommendation related to my weight and I find it too heavy. I think the blanket is fantastic quality and feels beautiful but it is oppressively heavy. I think I should have gotten a lighter on rather than the recommended weight. Unfortunately I can’t really justify the expense of buying a second, lighter one. The blanket itself is lovely.

Dreadful hate it
Hated it, it was so heavy I could hardly lift it, it didn’t make me sleep me sleep any better, I have put away and it now stays in the cupboard
Purchased in August 2019.
I found it didn’t help at all.
I’m very disappointed I was hoping it would help me get a better night sleep. It feels to Heavy and it Slips to the bottom and I can’t even it out
Purchased in August 2019 for $159.
The blanket arrived and i put it on my bed and it is far too heavy for me, so I didnt sleep well at all. Very disappointed for the price it cost me.
