This came out better than expected and we received it so quickly. We just love that we can memorialize his hospital blanket in this way - it's the perfect gift for my new baby and me. Words can't describe my appreciation of a job so well done.

This is my 4th purchase from numsie! 2 as gifts and 2 of our own. Quick responses regarding our custom order, quick turn around, and great quality work! Numsie definitely puts a lot of love into these animals. I can't recommend numsie enough and will continue to purchase!!!

Who knew?!

One day my daughter gave me her baby girl's receiving blanket and asked me if I could make something special out of it. From that simple request, the blanket bunnies were born! (It was close to Easter, so a bunny seemed appropriate). Other animals have been added to the inventory over the years.... bears, elephants, hippos, kitties, puppies and whales!

I know how hard it can be to put your baby's blanket in the mail! I treat each and every blanket that is sent to me like the treasure that it is and send the finished toy back to its forever home via USPS priority mail with tracking.

Want a blanket that looks like the one your hospital had - you can find most of them on amazon! Flannel blankets (most people get a few at the baby shower), work well for the plush toys, too. What doesn't work? Hand-knit or crocheted, muslin and stretchy blankets. Those blanket fabrics will not hold their shape as a toy. Check out my Etsy listings for more details.

If you want a receiving blanket toy - this is the place - the home of the original blanket toy!

I use the United States Postal Service for all orders, and ship only to US addresses. Shipping costs are listed with each item. The price includes tracking and a minimal amount for packaging and fees.

Orders are mailed via Priority Mail which generally arrives in two to three days, but they are not 'guaranteed' to arrive in those time frames by USPS. Tracking information will be provided once the item has shipped.
Refunds and Exchanges
Flannel receiving blanket toy orders are final. A completed toy is not returnable and numsie's is not responsible for poor quality due to poor quality of blanket provided. There is a wide variety of qualities of fabrics of the hospital receiving blankets.

If you have any questions or queries, do please ask me before you purchase. As with all handmade items, there can be variations.

For items other than the receiving blanket toys: Item must be postmarked for return within 2 weeks of receipt, in its original condition and unused. Please also note return shipping is the customer’s responsibility and the initial shipping cost is not refundable.

Custom orders are not returnable or refundable, but custom orders are only filled after the order has been discussed in Esty convos.
Additional policies and FAQs
Flannel receiving blankets should be shipped to me asap after you have placed an order. However, I realize that a lot of the purchases are made as baby shower gifts, so the certificate can be redeemed for the plush toy for up to one year from the purchase date. After one year, the certificate is no longer valid.
