Taggie Blanket, Taggies Tag Security Blanket And Toys For Babies
When my son was a little boy, there was no such thing as a taggie blanket, taggies had not been invented! But what he loved was what he called his ‘right corner’ a yellow, satin edged blanket that he could take everywhere with him and twiddle or rub the corner. He would ask for his ‘right corner’ when he needed a nap and would twiddle the corner while he drifted off to sleep and would take his blanket as a ‘baby security blanket’ into any situation where he felt unsure of himself.
The concept of Taggies blankets and Toys has built on what many moms have found (like me), that their little ones love to rub and twiddle the satin tags on clothing, blankets and toys as a calming and reassuring comforter. You can watch the video below to learn about how two Moms founded the Taggies brand.
When researching this article, I read that Dr. Julie Lumeng, of the University of Michigan's Center for Human Growth and Development in Ann Arbor, Mich. is quoted as saying, studies have shown that “children who are attached to security blankets are securely attached to their mothers and psychologically healthy”.
If children have a ‘security blanket’ that is a comforter for them, they are able to take this into any new or stressful situation (playgroup, doctor’s appointment, etc.) and this enables them to remain calmer and more confident than children who do not have their own little ‘security blanket’. Results of these studies have been published in the New York Times and have shown that children with this extra ‘confidence booster’, socialize more readily, are more able to learn and to keep their emotions in balance.

The Take A Long Taggies range of toys are designed very cleverly with a teething ring that is also a clip that allows the toy to be clipped to the stroller or car seat when on the go.

Some have a rattle inside, some have a squeak, some are just for cuddling but whichever one you choose, your baby will love his Take A Long Taggie.
