TODAY’S PATENT – BABY’S COMPANION AND SECURITY BLANKET
Having a baby is no joke! From toys to extra diapers, one needs to have them all ready for any moment call. And as ready as a parent may seem, managing every single essential can become a hassle. Their miniature-sized items can easily be misplaced.
To combat hassles like these, Herve L. Fournier invented the “Baby’s companion and security blanket” and received patent from the USPTO (4204362) on May 27th 1980.
The purpose of the invention is to bring together three most essential requirements of babies – a blanket, a pacifier and a teething ring. The structure of it is such that it combines all the three essentials together.
It relates to a small blanket and more particularly, to a blanket, a teething ring and a pacifier, together. As per the invention, the small blanket must be approximately 30”x40”. It comes with a pliable doll head, hollow and open from the neck area, attached to the blanket.
A sponge is placed at the center of the blanket which is of a greater diameter than the open neck diameter. This sponge can be pushed upwards towards the neck of the baby to secure the head to the blanket properly. A teething ring can be attached on the neck of the blanket for the baby’s easy access. The teething ring has an extension into which the nipple of the pacifier can be pushed.
