Laughing Lily is the handmade line of baby-soft lovies by Rebbetzin (Rabbi\'s wife) Alisha Sela. Her Bear Blankets are made out of "minky" material, which is 100% polyester, machine washable, line dryable, hypoallergenic, and so so so very soft! These 18" square Bear Blankets are friends & blanket in one. My daughter has her own bear blanky which is still her bedtime companion after more than 5 years of heavy loving. Great new baby/bris gift. Handmade in the USA.
