Which faux fur blanket should I buy?

minimink’s famous faux fur blankets are made of 100% synthetic material. Because they are so high quality and so soft to touch, we are often asked if they’re real. Another question we get asked from time to time is which of our blankets are suitable for particular age groups. To help you make an informed decision, here are some answers. Which minimink faux fur blanket should I buy for a new baby? The answer is our original and still our most popular product: our luxurious faux fur baby blanket. We’ve sold a lot of these over the years. They make great gifts and have been enormously well received by our customers. The encouragement and positive feedback of our customers keeps us going! Which minimink faux fur blanket should I buy for a child, teenager or adult? These would be our mid-size blankets (110cm x 140cm). They will fit the top of a single bed and of course are great as a throw.

All our blankets are packaged in an organza bag, with a card insert showing a picture of the product and information about our high quality faux fur. If you would like yours boxed and/or gift wrapped, we’re very happy to do...

Luxury faux fur items for babies and toddlers – some of our favourites

Over the years we’ve been delighted to provide high quality and extremely comfortable products for babies and toddlers. Probably the most rewarding thing about our business has been receiving all the amazing feedback we’ve had from parents, as well as noticing the smiling faces of their children. If you are looking for a luxury faux fur product for your baby or toddler – or a present to give a friend or relative – we have a number available. Here are some of our favourites. Russian style hat If we had to choose one word, it would be “adorable.” It is for this reason, we think, that our little Russian style hats are one of our most popular products.

Right now we are offering them at half price: only $5 for a pair! Bootees Important for keeping those little feet warm! Our bootees don’t have grips, as they are for pre-walkers (up to 6 months old).

Why our faux fur pet blankets are perfect for your dog or cat

Why our faux fur pet blankets are perfect for your dog or cat

Prepare yourself for a cuteness overload! We all know that if you have a dog or a cat they should have a pet blanket. Perhaps they’ve even taken over one of yours. We also know dogs and cats don’t exactly wipe their paws before jumping on them, so your pet’s blanket might need an upgrade. Ours last a long time – even when laid on with dirty paws – because they are made with the highest quality faux fur materials. They consist of minimink’s famous faux fur and are lined with cotton (machine washable and tumble dry). Some pet blankets are eyesores, but ours look beautiful. Like humans, pets like blankets that are warm and snugly, so you won’t have trouble getting them to lay down on them (you’re more likely to have trouble getting them off!). Now for that cuteness overload. Have a look at how gorgeous our little Maisie is. She had no problem lying on lots of different blankets for our photo shoot. Take a look at the large minimink pet blanket...

Our luxurious faux fur baby blanket: still the original and the best

Our luxurious faux fur baby blanket: still the original and the best

Made of the finest quality faux fur, following strict standards of workmanship and materials, the minimink baby blanket is a popular baby gift ­– our most popular, in fact. Over the years we’ve sold many of these items and the response has been incredible. In fact, everything started with the baby blanket. minimink began back in 2002, when owner and founder Ally Schulz was expecting baby number two. With a Melbourne winter approaching, she wanted something beautiful, warm and cuddle-worthy to wrap her baby in. Thus the birth of baby Emery also saw the arrival of the first minimink product the following year – a luxurious golden honey rug/wrap/throw that got everybody talking about it (and touching it!). All these years later it is still our best selling item. One blogger wrote that the baby blanket was “gorgeous faux fur” and says “my girls both melted with theirs and the first thing they did was cuddled it into their face with a big smile!” Another described their baby as being “in the lap of Minimink luxury.” And: “I highly recommend them for babies if you are looking for a super soft, comfy base for your baby to lie on.” We’ve had much more positive feedback over the years – too many comments and emails to count! It might sound like a cliché when somebody says “the original and the best.” But hey, in this case it’s absolutely true. Buy or read more about our baby...
