Blankets, like bodyguards, provide security, loyal companionship, and a valuable intimidation factor on the playground. Scare off recess bullies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a Little Giraffe chenille blanket at MODE in Maple Grove (a $65 value).
Known for a consistently rotating stock of designer couture, MODE pampers parents and babies with legions of Little Giraffe blankets. Named for the iconic even-toed ungulate, Little Giraffe crafts chic and luscious baby products that have become a staple of celebrity moms such as Gwen Stefani and Jessica Alba. The ultra-plush chenille blankets, one of which was lauded by Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, wrap youngsters in cuddly baby burritos, lulling fussy cries into peaceful snores and adding a twist of class to a superhero-aping toddler's cape. Though availability at MODE may vary, a dazzling array of patterns and hues accent the plush fabric, from a frieze of dots across the confetti print to the mini stripe to the solid classic blanket.
