Really not for me

published

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.

Very good warm and fluffy, improves sleep quite a bit. Only problem is that the inner part keeps moving around in its case(weight ends up all to one side) but a couple of buttons sewn into the inside should solve that. I got a “3 for 1” deal on my blankets so the price listed is the total for all 3.

Do your research

published

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.

Pretty happy

published

I bought this for my grandson who has ASD and it seems to help him sleep a little better using the blanket. I would have preferred that the quilting was smaller as the beads clump up quite a bit.

A hot night's sleep

published

Love the colour the feel of the material...it's really nice on the bed!! I love nothing better than sliding under it after a hard long painful day and fall asleep quickly and restfully!! Although I do find it gets too hot at times especially when hubby is in bed too but overall I love sleeping with the blanket!!

Way too small to be functional

published

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.

Doesn't live up to the hype

published

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.

Pleasant weight!

published

My maldive bamboo blanket arrived first. I was pleased the colour blended better with my decor than expected. I was disappointed that the white zipper showed. This needs to be addressed. My quartz minky arrived the other day and I love the feel. Also relieved that the correct colour invisible zipper had been used. I love resting or reading under my blanket during the day. Sorting the bed at night is more difficult because my husband runs at a different temperature and is not using the weighted blanket - yet. I was looking forward to using the blanket in my recliner but the weight unbalances it..... I sleep OK anyway but like the weight and am hoping it helps with my RLS.

Beautiful blanket

published

We have had our 9kg blanket for 2 weeks now and are very happy with our purchase. My husband who was very sceptical is sleeping a bit better. Love the beautiful soft feel of the fabric.

Sent it back

published

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.

Suprised

published

Was excited to receive my blanket. A little heavier than I expected but great for snuggling up on the couch. Will recommend to others but 9kg one is a little too heavy.

Love my blanket

published

I love my blanket and would recommend anyone buys one... However, I think having more ties on the inside would be better as the blanket moves around (I ended up taking off the snuggly cover), and smaller bead squares would probably be a good thing too - for more even distribution. Other than that I love it.

Nice weight

published

I got the the adult minky blanket. The feel of the cover is lovely and the weight was nice and helped with my sleep. If you toss and turn in your sleep I would reccomend the queen size blanket. I also noticed the ties in the cover could be more secure as after two weeks one had fallen out.

Living up to the expectation

published

This blanket has so far lived up to the expectations.
I was hoping it would help my 7 yr old son with some behavoural issues sleep in his own bed and make it easier to get him to sleep and so far so good its only been a bit over a fortnight and he is actually starting to remember to pull his blanket up at night because he says "I just cant sleep good with out my blanket"
So we have gone from pretty much having him in our bed from about 12-1 am most nights to occasionally coming into our bed about 5 am which has been a blessing
And instead of 1-2 hours trying to get him to sleep to about 15-20 minutes.
So all in all we are liking it. It did take a few days to get used to but after that its been great.

BLANKET ARRIVED MOLDY!

published

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.

Great service - just getting used to the blanket...

published

I like it, and am slowly liking it more - so yes I do recommend. But I honestly thought it would feel heavier - it feels too light. Is this because I got the handwoven 9kg which stretches out a fair bit (without even trying it's a double bed size) so it's hard to get the full impact of the weight without bundling it up unevenly on top of myself? Maybe the glass beads option would be better, but this does look gorgeous. I will love it in time, just takes a bit to work out how to make it work best.

Kids are fighting over the blanket

published

Kids love the blanket on the couch and fight over who gets it on their bed. Unfortunately my 10yo ASD child still wets the bed so I have to take the blanket off her once she goes to sleep. A waterproof cover would be awesome.

Happy customer

published

At first I found it heavy and felt like it was not evenly distributed beads. Opened it up and a couple of the ties where not done up. Once I tied it up I have found the blanket to be doing what it is supposed to do and am sleeping better.

published

it really does help you you calm and get sleepy i fell asleep on the couch for the first time ever ( i dont like sleeping on couches) but i just couldnt help it, the blanket made me hahahah

Shipping takes too long

published

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.
