Was bought as a Christmas blanket. My nephew is five and loves Thomas, he absolutely loved the blanket. The best thing about it, is it is a blanket. That means that we will be using it for years to come. So it's and awesome purchase in my book!
The front of the blanket is as pictured, but the back is exactly the same as the front. The picture makes it look like there is cream fuzzy backing that would make the blanket thick, but it's not. For a regular fleece blanket though, it's cute.
