Aldi has released a $29 Heated Travel Blanket that shoppers are calling a ‘must-have’ item for winter.

For $29.99, the latest Special Buy item plugs into your car so you can use it when camping or caravanning.

It’s made from soft polyester fleece and includes a 12V car adaptor and a 2m detachable power cable.

Aldi have released the blanket in three different shades, but it will only be available in stores while stocks last.


Shoppers online have been raving about the winter buy, with some calling it ‘fantastic’.

“Gosh darn it, Aldi has done it again!,” one user wrote. “It is truly amazing how cutting edge products like this end up in an Aldi catalogue.”

Another shopper added: “Take my money, it’s going to be freezing out there!”

Others have suggested that the blanket will be great for attending outdoor cinemas and sporting matches.

“They are amazing,” one mum wrote. “Perfect for the kids when they come off the field to warm up.”
