All of these blankets are machine washable, and durably stitched so that they can withstand kids' energetic activity without ripping.

How to Use (Step by Step)
- Slide Feet in
To use your Magic Tails blanket, you'll first need to slide your feet in the hole, where they'll be covered by your tail and won't poke out.
- Pull Blanket up
Before you reline, you must also make sure that you pull your blanket up to your chest or as far as it will go, so you can stay as warm and cozy as possible.
- Six Different Shades
If you want a shark blanket, it comes in two different shades, including blue and green, while the mermaid blanket comes in blue, pink, purple and green. Each shark blanket also has a gray midsection and pretend eyes and teeth.
- Child Sized
These blankets are an ideal size for almost all school-aged boys and girls. They can be used by adults, too, although they may not come up very far on an adult's chest, leaving a large section of the body blanket-less.
- Soft Fabric
The Magic Tails blankets are made of soft, plush fabric that will feel pleasant against a child's skin. However, despite being soft, each blanket is also strong, due to the durable style of stitching used. Therefore, even if kids jump or roll around while inside the blankets, they likely will not rip.
- Fully Lined
Besides being soft, all of these blankets are also fully lined, so they'll be able to keep virtually anyone warm on a cold day.
- Machine Washable
Magic Tails blankets can be washed in an ordinary washing machine, so you won't need to worry about hand-washing yours or taking it to a dry cleaner's whenever it gets dirty. If you're a parent, you may even feel comfortable allowing your child to eat or drink while wearing their blanket, due to the fact that spills and stains can be so easily eliminated.
- Makes Great Gift
A Magic Tails blanket makes a great gift for almost any child, and they may find theirs so enticing that they'll want to put it on while they're still finishing their birthday cake. If you're not sure whether a particular child would prefer a shark or mermaid blanket, you could always get them two so they could alternate between them.
- For Nighttime and Daytime
While some blankets are only ideal for nighttime use, these ones can be used for a variety of activities during the daytime and the nighttime. During the day, you may want to get inside yours while watching television, while riding as a passenger in the car, or while sitting outdoors on a breezy day. At night, it'll make a great covering for sleep regardless of whether you're at home, at a friend or relative's house, or even in a tent.
- Promotes Creativity
Magic Tails blankets promote creativity by encouraging kids to play pretend. If you're playing with friends during the day or at a sleepover, and they have these blankets too, you may want to pretend that you're a group of mermaids or sharks under the sea. When there are no friends around, you might even find it fun to imagine that'you're a beautiful or powerful sea creature on your own or with a parent.
- May Not Cover Shoulders
Depending on how tall a child is, one of these blankets may not extend all the way up to their shoulders. Hence, a second blanket may be needed at night if they prefer to have their body fully covered during sleep.
- Sleeping Bags
Sleeping bags are similar to Magic Tails blankets, but they aren't as fun to use, since most haven't been designed to look like creatures. Plus, they may feel too bulky on warmer days, and can be difficult for kids to zip up and unzip on their own.
- Standard Blankets
You can get blankets with pictures of sharks, mermaids, and other sea creatures on them, but with these, you can't transform your own self into a creature. Your feet might slip out from underneath a standard blanket and get cold, too, as they lack tails that'll keep your feet covered.
- Pajamas With Feet
Pajamas with feet that have been decorated to make you look like an animal are also available, but these aren't as easy to slip on and take off as the Magic Tails blankets. They sometimes don't have tails, either. You may outgrow them quickly, too, while it's unlikely that anyone will become too large to fit comfortably within one of the blankets until they become a teenager.
If you have two or more kids who need to sleep together in a bed but aren't enthusiastic about it, a good strategy is to give them each a Magic Tails blanket to put on. Then, each will feel as if they're in their own little cocoon, separated from and not touching their sibling.
