"I don’t know whether it’s that rare ‘made in England’ tag or the gorgeous Liberty fabric but there’s a nostalgic quality to this which reminds me of my childhood. There’s something almost retro about it – think Mr Ben, The Hungry Caterpillar and fish finger sandwiches. This would make such a gorgeous present! It comes in beautiful packaging – a pretty little bag which you can keep it in or use for something else. Even the labels are pretty! The Liberty fabric is so soft and lovely and the ribbons are all colourful and interesting. My daughter loves fiddling around with them. What’s also nice is that they’ve incorporated the washing instructions and other info on some of the ribbons. Overall, I think the Raggy Tag is good value compared to the other tag blankets on the market. Everything about it has been well thought out. I often think ‘I could make that’ with these sort of things, but I’m sure it would cost more to make than the retail price. The fabrics used are all a very high quality. If you’re looking for a special gift, this is perfect!"

"I was very happy to receive the Raggy-Tag which came before my baby Juliana was born. I've waited until she is now 4 months old to write the review. She loves grabbing the Raggy-Tag. She gets very excited when I wave it in front of her face. She kicks her legs and waves her arms and smiles. It is just the right size to play peepo with too. The Raggy-Tag comes beautifully packaged in an organza gift bag with gingham ribbon and a natural tag with a good description. The velour is lovely and soft - just like my baby's skin! There is an excellent range of different attractive ribbons. My favourite one is the union jack. Juliana likes any one she can grab. I like the whole thing, blanket, ribbons, label and packaging. I think it is good value for money. It is a quality, well made and unique baby gift. I'm sure I would buy this as a gift. It would make a memorable gift and your recipient would get a lot more use of it than an item of clothing which they would soon grow out of."
"For babies and children, play is pure fun. But it’s also a serious learning experience. Through play, they develop the self-esteem, social and emotional skills necessary to grow. Gymboree’s playroom is filled with specially designed equipment. Colourful, safe and fun, it allows babies and children to challenge themselves and achieve, building confidence, competence and self-esteem.
Tried and tested at Gymboree Play & Music in St. Margarets, Middlesex, Raggy-Tags were used in the baby classes to enhance dexterity skills. They were instantly engaging, tags were pulled, rubbed and twisted. As the babies developed more head, trunk and arm co-ordination, they initiated more interaction with the Raggy-Tags. Vigourous pulling, gentle stroking, scrunching into a ball, placing on laps, laying on the floor and rubbing their favourite tag while listening to the Gymboree teacher."

"My oldest (2) son has had his raggy-tag since birth and doesn't go anywhere without it. Whenever he is upset the first thing is asks for is "Taggy" not Mummy! Although it is used daily and washed regularly it still looks quite new, it is great quality. I am now getting one for my youngest son who will love his as much as his brother does. Thank you Raggy-Tag!"
