Looking at the schedule, you’ll notice that the shows premiere at night (mostly for viewers in the USA). But even if it’s not night where you are, chances are you may only have time to settle down and indulge in all this shark-goodness at night after a hard day’s work.


So why not get yourself and your loved ones some Blankie Tails Shark Blankets? These premium-quality, extra soft and plush shark-shaped blankets will have you wrapped up all good and comfy for some uninterrupted viewing pleasure.

Slide your feet right all the way down into the fins and flap them about for some real aquatic fun.

Feel the shark’s teeth right up to your chest but don’t worry it surely won’t hurt as the teeth are made from soft felt.

We also have them for kids too: Blankie Tails Mermaid Tail Blanket Youth Size and Blankie Tails Shark Blanket Youth Size.

Another great thing about these blankets is that you don’t have to roll them up and store away till the next Shark Week. You can still use them afterwards for staying cozy at night, camping activities, sleepovers, movie nights, and so on. It makes a great gift too!
