Mom Loves Zip-n-Go - the all weather, portable blanket!


Be sure to enter to win below!


The other day I ran across a great new product (yay for twitter!) The mom behind the product was super friendly and offered to host a fantastic giveaway! I love the zip-n-go Blanket because it's super practical, cute, and compact and its proudly made in the USA!

Jennifer Locke is a mother of two young boys and knows the importance of a product that is easy to use, quality made, and can be put away quickly and neatly. She is the creator of the Zip-n-go Blanket™ (www.zipngoblanket.com) , a weatherproof outdoor blanket that folds and zips to become its own tote bag. This blanket keeps you dry, clean, and hands free! You don't have to worry about keeping track of a separate carrying case or strap. These outdoor blankets are made in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with quality materials. From the highly water resistant Urethane Coated Nylon Oxford Lining, Premium Velour Anti Pill Fleece, to their YKK® Zippers you can be sure you are getting a superior outdoor blanket that is also machine washable. It is the perfect multi-purpose blanket for babies, picnics, soccer games, concerts, camping and dogs. It is great to keep in the car too, when you wish you had a blanket!

From Jennifer:
"The blanket when laid out measures 5 ' by 6' so you will have plenty of room to stretch out or enjoy a picnic. The blanket comes with a inside zippered security pocket to keep your belongings like keys, wallet, and cell phone. The pocket can be easily tucked under the blanket to hide from view. When the blanket is folded and zipped up it becomes it's own tote measuring 18" x 15" x2". The large outside pocket can easily hold magazines, drinks, snacks, toys, diapers and wipes. It can also be custom embroidered with your monogram or name. From Plaids, Damask, Leopard,Children prints to solids, Zip-n-go Blankets offer 12 colors and styles from which to choose. They are priced at $74.99 and every blanket comes with free shipping to all US locations and APO addresses by USPS Property Mail! They make great Christmas, birthday, and baby shower gifts. It is a gift that will last for years to come! Zip-n-go Blankets are so sure you will love their outdoor blanket, they also come with 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Zip-n-go Blanket's mission is to keep you dry and clean, while relaxing and enjoying life where ever you might be!"

You have to love it! Jennifer is generously offering up a Zip-n-Go to one lucky reader in either Bright Paisley, Zoo Animals, or Friendly Sea Life!

I would use it the zip-n-go just about wherever the kids and I go. I would keep it in the car for either our impromptu outings when we grab some fried chicken and find a nice park to eat it at or for our planned outings as well. It certainly would come in handy just about everywhere.

I live in NYC and the zip-n-go would be perfect for a day in Central Park. My twins may not have a backyard to run around in but picnics in the park on the the zip-n-go will more than make up for it.

rachael said...

this woudl be perfect for walks to the park! i always have so much to carry with 3 one year olds, that adding blanket is too cumbersome! maybe we could even picnic :)

rachael said...

i follow :)

ihchicky said...

I'd use this when we go camping. We often like to sit on the beach and this would be perfect. Thanks for the chance.

Jacky said...

The uses for this blanket are as many as you can imagine. It could be used for picnics or resting on at parks, zoo trips, camping trips, the beach etc. It could be used to cover a picnic table bench, for use when the ground is damp especially at out door events e.g. firework displays. As a mother of 2 young children I would use it in the back of my van when the 3rd row is folded down for quick meal times when I do not want to rush home or get the van dirty! or as a clean play play mat for the baby. It would be easy to hang on a stroller, keep in the van or carry alongside the diaper bag when ever you went out. It would also make a great bleacher cushion or pillow when zipped up!

I would love the Zip N Go for the park. We go early in the morning in the summer, to beat the heat, but sometimes the grass is wet.

Kurt, Emily & Ethan said...

I would use this at the beach! My son hates the sand but we love the beach so this would keep us all happy... not to mention easier to tote w/ all the other stuff we carry w/ us :)

I would probably keep this in my car at all times! It's good to keep a blanket in your car for emergencies or impromptu picnics. :)

we go on last minute picnics a LOT, and usually find ourselves at Mt. Trashmore park or Sandbridge in Virginia Beach.
