How many blankets do each of your kids have?

Doing a little spring cleaning today and realized my DD, she's 4, has about 10+ blankets that she's accumulated.
1- knitted star quilt from her grandmother (will keep)
5 kitted SMALL baby quilts from a handful of people that are close to our family (should I keep them?... :/ dilema)
.......and about 10 fleece and cotton blankets.
How many do your kids have? How many do you think is a good number to keep?

Then my twin boys who are 2 1/2 have
3 fleece blankets and 2 quilted blankets (EACH).

The baby has about 3 hand me down baby blankets and 1 new.

  • Our hallway closet is full of linens/blankets. My youngest is 14 months old and I'm sure she has at least 10. My 4 and 2 yr old each have a comforter and a small blanket on their bed and then 4-5 extra blankets/quilts in the closet.

  • There are quite a few shared blankets. However, my son has one fleece/cotton and one Flannel/Cotton andone knitted. My daughter has one Flannel and two fleece. I don't think there's a such thing as "Too Many" blankets. I plan on making my children more, especially as they get older.

  • A billion. Probably at least 15 each, and that doesn't count the regular bed blankets. They are everywhere.

  • My daughter has at least 15 to 20 blankets. She has 4 different quilts for her bed that I switch out each week and tjust little blankets that were either made for her or bought for her for comfort. She was big on having a blankie everywhere we went when she was a bit younger and at 5, not much has changed

  • My kids have oodles of blankets each. We keep several on their beds in the winter (folded up in the closet in the summer) and more in the cedar chest for overnight company.
