The sliding button on the controller on one side was always hard to move. It also started popping out when I tried to move it. Now within 2 years of purchase the slider falls out randomly onto the floor. There is also a big hard bump in the blanket where the controller connects to it. It's ok if covered with both a woollen underlay and a mattress protector. One of the ties on my daughter's single blanket came unstitched.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
