Snuggie: Must-Have or WTH?


snuggieAt some point over Thanksgiving weekend, one of my friends started to talk about the Snuggie. The Snuggie? Here I thought I was on top of all infomercials, but this was the first I heard about the blanket with sleeves! My brother-in-law said it was like a super sized, backwards bathrobe. And then I saw the infomercial....

Made of fleece, this as-seen-on-TV item is supposed to give you all the warmth of a blanket but it has arms so you can do things like type on your laptop or turn pages of a book all while your arms stay covered. It's $19.95 plus shipping and handling.

What do you think of the Snuggie? Must-have or what the heck?

I live in FL - so I think it would be a waste for me.  Maybe if it were snowing outside or cold for more than 3 weeks at a time...

Looks kinda nice, but I'd feel like a monk, no thanks!

To me they just look like a backwards robe.

Actually, I've seen something else similar that doesn't look so much like a giant muumuu. And I wouldn't mind it. My house is freezing during the winter, and my husband just tells me to put more clothes on. There are only so many layers I can wear! But a blanket with sleeves!? Tell me more!

When I first saw the infomercial I was like WTH (heck), but I have seen it a # of times now and it is growing on me... I am in Al... southern AL can't get no deeper south in AL than where I am and it get to chilly nights at times in the winter... I like to sit on the patio then too... I am thinking about getting one...or a for each of us. I will not be buying it... but making it myself... Ha!

I have one, well, something similar. I love it. I can stay all zipped in to my blanket and then waddle into the kitchen for something to drink without having to get un-warm. Also, because you can snap it so it has sleeves I can still be in the blanket and, say, still type on CM. I live in Alaska though. I can see how it wouldn't probably be necessary in other parts of the country.

Making 3 of them for Christmas gifts LOL will go well here in MI :)

LOL - Oh my gosh, I saw that on tv for the first time this morning!  I think my blankets will do the trick though.  :-)

This looks like something from the 70s (though not in a good fashion-y way) or from a Saturday Night Live skit.
