Imagine A Cashmere Or Mink-y Soft Blankie For Baby (But Washable)

New Providence, NJ (June 16, 2017) – Grownups who have had the luxury of cuddling in mink or cashmere know the higher price tag is worth the experience of being surrounded by incredible softness. Imagine a baby’s blankie having the same indulgence! Say hello to Modern Cuddle ($20 and up), a new line of posh plush, blankies, playmats and lovies to give and to receive. Modern Cuddle makes its debut to retailers at ASTRA Marketplace’s Booth 463.

The man behind this sophisticated gift line is Todd Rivkees, formerly a children’s boutique retailer and New York City garment center executive. His upscale clientele continually requested chic tactile, loveable and comforting baby presents.

“Todd stocks the very latest in nursery products for modern babies from uber chic high chairs to romantically draped bassinets,” wrote a mom blogger filed under Our Favorite Things.

But the dad and businessman also took note of what his youngest shoppers were doing. Toddlers and soon-to-be big sisters liked to touch, explore and feel the most soothing items in the store. And when given the chance, those chubby fingers would cuddle with the softest products. That gave him an ah-ha moment to create Modern Cuddle.

Parents and grandparents agree that a kiss and a cuddle can be powerful. Rivkees offers cuddles that will last through the night or during a car ride with his so-soft fabrics transformed into plush and blankies including the appropriately named Minkie Blankie ($22) available in three colors.
