If you are concerned with someone's ability to remove the blanket on their own without assistance, we do not recommend letting them using the blanket without supervision and putting it away and out of reach when you are not home.
The Purple + Gravity Weighted Blanket is an adult weighted blanket that can be used by people of many ages, but should not be used by children under three years old or by any individual or pet that weighs less than 50 pounds due to the following potential hazards:
Potential Suffocation Hazard: The Purple + Gravity Weighted Blanket should be used with care. To minimize safety risks, please ensure that the user can remove the blanket on their own, without any assistance. For children, individuals with disabilities, and the elderly, the guardian or caregiver will need to use discretion as to whether-or-not the Purple + Gravity Weighted Blanket can be used without risk. The Purple + Gravity Weighted Blanket should never be used as a form of punishment or restraint. Failure to follow these instructions could result in suffocation.
Potential Choking Hazard: The glass beads used to weight the Purple + Gravity Weighted Blanket may be a choking hazard for young children. To protect against this, please ensure young children do not use blankets that are damaged, as the likelihood of poly-pellets becoming accessible is greater. We recommend checking for damages before and after putting your blanket in the washing machine.
