You know those cool winter mornings when the covers currently on your bed just aren’t enough? Or have you ever went to bed with the heat turned down to save money and wake up shivering a few hours later?
I’ve experienced both of those, which is why I was happy to review the Sunbeam LoftTec Plush 50″x60″ Heated Throw. The blanket comes rolled up like a sleeping bag, in one of those plastic containers that you will never be able to get it back into – not that it would go back into it here. Everyone loves it and it gets too much use to be stored.
This is the first electric blanket I’ve owned, save the one my grandparents had when I was like 5. They may have had more after that, but I never saw them. This blanket does exactly what it’s supposed to – keeps you good and toasty! The kiddo and I like to cuddle under it after breakfast, usually while watching Thomas and Friends or Curious George.
Chocolate brown is a primary color in our master bedroom, so I thought this Walnut-colored throw would be kept in there to use along with the comforter, should we feel chilly. However, it tends to get more use in the living room. The plush feeling is so comfortable, and it’s thickness contains the heat.
My husband teased that it was like a thick fur coat…yet a couple days after we got it, I caught him snoozing beneath it!
The controller is conveniently placed so you can adjust the heat as needed. There’s also a 3-hour automatic shutoff setting, which I really like when using the heated throw at night. I don’t have to worry about waking up sweating because it turns off before that happens.
All in all, this throw from Sunbeam has been a welcomed addition to the blankets we already have. I am glad to review it during the coldest time of the year – now we can save a little on our heating bill!
