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.

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.

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.

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.

BLANKET ARRIVED MOLDY!
I purchased the Adult Weighted Blanket for a gift for a family member suffering from health issues.
When we unraveled the blanket it was moldy inside!
Aside from the lack in quality for a high price , a product promoting health benefits arriving in an unhealthy condition is beyond disappointing.
Waiting for a response/replacement from company.

Helps me relax
Blanket helps me relax, but I do have a few gripes considering the $200+ price tag. One is the polyester cover which they call minky soft, due to the nature of the fabric it becomes hot and sweaty.
The blanket beads also don't really stay on you due to gravity. This could be remedied by smaller pockets for the beads. Also having to do up and un do like 15 ties to attach the cover is annoying and seems a bit cheap.
Will say service was good and quick and when my first covers stitching started ripping open, then sent out a replacement straight away. Just would wish for higher quality for such an expensive purchase.

Poor Design and Poor Customer service (DON'T BUY SINGLE ADULT BLANKET)
I bought an adult blanket for myself but I am not 100% satisfied with this product.
This blanket is meant to be a sleep blanket not just a couch blanket.
The length and width of the blanket is not enough for my height and sleep posture (My leg sticks out of the blanket).
Also the weighted blanket, which is tied inside the cover, does not provide an evenly distributed weight and hence not stable enough during sleep (the inside weight moves and I have to readjust the weight).
In summary the design needs to be improved to synchronise the weighte...d blanket and the fleece cover and also provide a good length and width to the blanket to cover the whole body. When I emailed the customer representative who messaged me for product feedback, I got no response from anyone, very poor service. I will never buy again from them.

My first impression being under a weighted blanket is that it feels like being under tight sheets, like in a hotel. I experience restless leg syndrome occasionally, and in general move around a lot in my sleep. I wanted to give a weighted blanket a try because of the reviews of people with similar issues. I bought the Calming Blankets brand and a generic one half the cost from a popular auction site. (Can confirm they look and feel the same).
The problem is my body still wants to move, so being weighted down is almost torturous. I find it very...

Shipping takes too long
The email mentioned 2-8 business days but it has been over a month now.
They should mention it if it's going to take this long!! I'm very dissapointed with their service.

Purchased adult and child blanket
I purchased two blankets. One adult and one child. I’m super disappointed as my daughters blanket is very small and doesn’t even cover her properly. Had I checked and purchased two decent size blankets, I’d have given 5 stars. So please check the sizing to avoid disappointment. On the other hand, my blanket is fabulous. Found it super heavy at the start and way too hot. It took me ages to adjust. Now I really love it. My insomnia/sleep walking and night terrors have diminished.

Could be much better
The inside portion of the blanket is flat. It just feels like a very expensive blanket. I bought my daughter a calming blanket from a different company and it’s so much better
