Snuggie Blanket with Sleeves: Another Candidate for the Stupid Products Hall of Fame

Recently I received a copy of the Harriet Carter catalog in the mail and saw an unbelievably strange product called “Snuggie” that claimed it was “As Seen On TV.” Snuggie is a “blanket with sleeves” that you can wear like a robe. I did a search online and found video of the commercial:

As with the Hawaii Chair and the Shuffles Shoe Mop ads, many people will just assume the Snuggie commercial is some sort of joke. But, dear readers, I can assure you that the Snuggie blanket is a real product you can buy for yourself at www.FreeSnuggie.com.

One great thing about infomercials for stupid products is that they tell you about problems you never knew anyone had. If not for the Tiddy Bear commercial, I never would have known that seat belts slicing into people like razor blades was such a common difficulty. Likewise, until I saw this Snuggie commercial I never realized just how incredibly difficult it was for many people to get their hands out from under a blanket! (“…when you need to reach for something your hands are trapped inside.”)

They tout Snuggie as being “one size fits” all and proclaim it “great for the whole family.” Yes, now you can finally make your family look like the members of a medieval monastery, only co-ed and with kids.

Even more absurdly, this commercial actually encourages you to wear Snuggie outdoors at “sporting events.” Hmmm…this could be a good or bad thing. Wear Snuggie to a football or hockey game and perhaps people will steer clear of you, thinking you are a Hare Krishna who will either try to brainwash them or hit them up for a donation. On the other hand, the rough and tumble sports enthusiasts may simply beat the living crap out of you, in which case you should wear the Burgundy Snuggie, so that massive amounts of your own blood won’t be as noticeable on it.

That reminds me: Halloween is coming up, so any of you Star Wars geeks who want to dress up as a member of the Emperor’s Royal Guard should buy your Snuggie today!

  • this doesn’t really consider the problem of cold hands, does it?

    Comment by Mel on September 16, 2008 at 9:22 pm

  • So… It’s a robe that you wear backwards. How innovative. Or not. Ditto what Mel said too.

  • I knew you would write about this! Who knew munks went to football games?

    Comment by Melissa on September 17, 2008 at 8:08 am

  • Maybe I should market a pair of pants you wear backwards so you can wipe easily if you get swamp-ass. (Don’t try to steal the idea! It’s mine! MINE! Ah hahahahaha!)

  • Yes! Make your family look like a bunch of cult members! All that’s missing are the Nike sneakers!

  • Check out this post about the Snuggie. Thanks!

    Comment by Doug at Taunt Vortex on September 22, 2008 at 11:52 am

  • you know, I agree with nearly all of your posts–but I honestly can’t see much fault with this idea. I think it’s good enough and will sell well and looks like it does what it is supposed to do. I am not sure it’s fair to lump it together with the Hawai’i chair…

    Comment by Brian on September 27, 2008 at 2:06 pm

  • Then I guess we will be seeing lots of people out in public draped in the Snuggie!

    Actually this product is a lot like the Hawaii Chair: People would look like buffoons using the Hawaii Chair at work, and people will look like buffons wearing the Snuggie.

    (By the way I do NOT review products on this site; I only make jokes about the infomercials.)

  • I wear my snuggie blanket when I play with my dolls.

    Comment by Richard Simmons on September 27, 2008 at 6:47 pm

  • If it keeps you warm, why not? And it definitely looks comfortable enough. I love outdoor sports and If I had to choose between snuggie & freezing to death—- weLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!
    And if, by chance, I leave mine at home, then someone needs to make room in theirs bcaz I’m coming in with’cha.

    I think Snuggie was a great idea. And it looks fun!!!

    Comment by Bekay on October 3, 2008 at 3:10 am

  • I think this is an excellent idea for elderly folks – why don’t you be a little more inventive and pick something truly stupid?

    Comment by william on October 11, 2008 at 6:12 pm

  • Any person who would make an old person wear a Snuggie in public should be convicted of elder abuse!

    Comment by aimhire on October 12, 2008 at 1:55 pm

  • My husband and I saw this commercial and couldn’t stop laughing. Especially with them in the stands at some sporting event.

    Here’s my question, if it’s one size fits all – it seems like accidents would be caused by shorter people and children stepping on the blanket and falling. That’s worse than having your hands trapped inside a blanket!

    Comment by EMR on October 21, 2008 at 6:07 pm

  • As we sat in our northern Michigan home on a chilly night and the four of us were wrapped in blankets, we saw this commercial and thought it was a good idea.
    I don’t think this qualifies as stupid… it serves a need- is long enough to cover your feet and you don’t have to be all wrapped up to be warm. It sounds like a good idea. No need to use it in public but if it keeps you warm, why not?

    Comment by linda on October 21, 2008 at 8:40 pm

  • Has anyone looked at the shipping & handling charge???? $19.95 for 2 snuggies ( you can’t buy one) and $ $15.90 s&h how rediculous.

    Comment by robert on October 22, 2008 at 5:42 am

  • @EMR: LOL!! Yes, The Spanish Inquisition!

    Comment by Paul Lucas on October 22, 2008 at 8:33 am

  • I saw the informercial today at the Nail Salon with my boyfriend’s 2 small daughters and we all agreed it looked very comfortable. Blankets are a pain in the butt when they aren’t long enough and don’t cover your entire body. And YES….I am a 26 year old female and have enough security with myself to be able to wear a snuggie in public. I totally wished I would have had one at the recent Halloween Parade I attended….(Which was 32 Degrees)!!!!! AND actually, I don’t think I would have had anyone there “beat the living crap out of you(me), in which case you(I) should wear the Burgundy Snuggie, so that massive amounts of your(my) own blood won’t be as noticeable on it”…..YEAH…NO!!! Actually, I think people would have been jealous that they weren’t as smart and comfortable as me!!! And I could totally picture a fun family night wearing our Snuggies, eating popcorn, relaxing in the living room, watching a good movie on a snowy night!

  • My children even thought this was a hilarious comercial. My 8 year old made the comment that the people looked like wizards.

    Comment by Snarf on November 1, 2008 at 7:31 am

  • Are you morons pissed because you didn’t think of it first and will not be making any money? You’ll simply spend your time (as you always do) in your parent’s basement smoking dope, watching robot chicken, and getting off on anime porn.

    Comment by John on November 1, 2008 at 8:47 am

  • If you’re covering up w/ a blanket and you get up to do something, do you take the blanket with you? No…so take the snuggie off when you get up and you won’t trip. Robes aren’t typically long enough to cover your feet or you would fall, so your feet will still be cold. I’m thinking about buying one for my mom, grandma and a couple for myself. The shipping is high, but total it’s only $19 for each one including shipping, so it makes a good gift. For those that cover up w/ a blanket any time of the year, this may be a good purchase…for those who don’t, probably not.

    Comment by James on November 1, 2008 at 11:41 am

  • So there are people who wear blankets in public? If not then you don’t need to wear a snuggie in public. Just indoors as you would a blanket. It’s a good idea…especially if you’re reading a book and need to get your hands out to hold it but not expose your upper torso to the cold.

  • damn it

    Comment by spank on November 1, 2008 at 6:58 pm

  • the thing that really got me about this one is that it would be so easy to make one yourself. Why pay for one? Personally, I’d never use it, but I have family members who might, particularly my aunt with rheumatoid arthritis. Regular blankets can get cumbersome if you have to move them around to get at stuff but still want to keep your (aching) arms warm. But again, I will probably make one out of a cheap bathrobe and recycled fabric, not pay 19.95 plus shipping.

    Comment by steph on November 2, 2008 at 12:47 am

  • Saw ‘slanket’ on QVC this am. Same thing…HIGHER price….no-’buy one get one’ offered. This is a GREAT idea for people like me who sleep in recliner at night because of sinus problems, sore joints, or snor noise in bedroom.
    Thank you, Snuggie!!

    Comment by Patricia on November 2, 2008 at 8:25 am

  • Hello,this is nothing more than a HOSPITAL GOWN that leaves my tush hanging out and frozen.

    Comment by Joey on November 2, 2008 at 11:23 am

  • the slanket was invented by a college guy, he brought it to qvc (i think it was last year) and they keep selling it out. so naturally someone would copy it…the snuggie! snuggie is much cheaper but it could be made out of super cheap, creepy fleece. i read that the slanket wasn’t recommended for the elderly because if they tried to walk with it on, it could turn into a nightmare.

    Comment by candy on November 2, 2008 at 1:28 pm

  • As anyone on dialysis will know, this is an ideal solution to the horrible chills we get will hooked up to the machine. Make fun all you want, but for us, this is perfect. Thank you Snuggie!!!

    Comment by Marlene on November 2, 2008 at 3:36 pm

  • It may just not be only the “spudid-est” product, but correspondingly the worst website and fulfillment process. Trying to order for her elderly parents, my wife wouldn’t/couldn’t order by phone because she got trapped in robo-sell hell. When I tried to order online I kept getting redirected and booted off. Maybe my brouser is trying to idiot proof us!

    Comment by Steve dlT on November 2, 2008 at 7:18 pm

  • OMG! I was absolutely dumbfounded when I discovered this product! If it was legal in Australian states to marry this product, I think i would…

    Comment by The Snuggler on November 3, 2008 at 10:45 am

  • Snuggler…
    Can I come to the wedding? Or better yet, you could marry ME in your snuggie! We could have a Snuggie wedding – mandotory item of clothing for ALL guests is a snuggie

    Comment by The Snugglette on November 3, 2008 at 11:04 am

  • Reading all of these comments that everyone is posting is just amusing. I was trying to get some real info, and apparently there’s way too many people on here that have too much free time.

    Comment by Amused on November 3, 2008 at 10:00 pm

  • Love seeing a ripoff product getting a lot of press.
    The ‘Slanket” came out almost 2 years prior and is really nice to set in and work on the computer.
    Yep it is not a fashion statment but if you can turn down th thermostat and still be warm then sometimes you can over look fashion.

    Comment by Whyy on November 6, 2008 at 2:24 am

  • Hey stupid #3 “Who knew munks went to football games” – it’s MONKS – & to everyone else’s negative remarks: maybe there are people who enjoy snuggling into & NEED to snuggle into (lack of heat??) something to keep warm; besides, did you ever take a look around at how some people dress & the sloppiness OUTSIDE ON THE STREET!!

    Comment by marilyn on November 9, 2008 at 7:07 am

  • I wish I’d thought of wearing my full length bath robe….backwards. This is totally ingenious.

    Comment by Paul on November 9, 2008 at 7:46 am

  • With three garish colors from which to choose it’s the perfect gear for an acid drenched toga party. AND, spill anything on the floor and your Snuggie becomes an instant Sham Wow!

    Comment by Ian on November 9, 2008 at 1:25 pm

  • Ian, flippin hilarious!

    Comment by Josh on November 12, 2008 at 12:03 am

  • Not a bad idea at all! I freeze in the winter, especially at work. Last year I had to bring in a blanket to keep myself warm (this being over a sweatshirt or jacket). It was difficult to work and keep warm because I would begin to type and the blanket would fall off my shoulders. With the Snuggie this would not happen and it would cover my entire body.
    Great idea! I think i’ll get one for myself.

    Comment by ColdInTheWinter on November 12, 2008 at 12:34 pm

  • This is the dumbest f-ing product on the gosh darn planet! If a blanket has sleeves, then you can no longer refer to it as a blanket. This, my friends, is a fleece cloak! Unless you’re joining the Manson family, I do not recommend that anyone buys this ridiculous product. My co-worker, only known as MB, has admitted that she uses the Snuggie. She has been subjected to jeers and hate! Thus, if you do purchase this produce, be preparted to be heckled by friends, co-workers, family, and complete strangers for the rest of your days on earth. By the way, who in the hell is Renee Zellwijjer? I heard of trimm’n the hedges, but Snuggie you done scorched the Earf!

    Comment by Leonard T. Washington on November 13, 2008 at 7:15 am

  • Renee Zellwijjer was that chick in Jerry McGuire. Was she really wearing a snuggie?

    Comment by Tron on November 13, 2008 at 11:35 am

  • I love the way they advertise it for $19.95 but when you purchase it the price comes out to $35.85 with the $15.90 shipping added on!!

    Comment by paul on November 14, 2008 at 7:06 pm

  • Paul…your write up is so friggin’ funny I’m crying from laughing. Thanks I needed that. I still kind of like the idea of this thing though.

    Comment by Eva May on November 15, 2008 at 11:13 pm

  • woooow, why dont people just wear jackets? its the same thing, only you can open and close a jacket from the front which seems to be far more convenient.

    Comment by aleksandra on November 16, 2008 at 12:55 am

  • What they don’t tell you is that when you order the buy 1 get 1 free deal for 19.95 they are adding 15.00 shipping to each piece! Thats right $47 for three pieces from CT.

    Comment by GEORGE FURTSCH on November 16, 2008 at 10:32 am

  • My wife saw the ad and thought her elderly parents and other relatives might like ‘em. She went to the website and WOW!. The TV ad tells you that you get a “free” booklight, too. What is not mentioned in the ad is that shipping is $7.95 PER snuggie, so although it’s bogo, you pay for the second one with that shipping cost. And you can’t get the booklight unless you also pay 5 bucks extra per snuggie for the 50% thickness upgrade. That led her to believe they are paper thin to begin with. Rip-off city.

    Comment by dan p. on November 16, 2008 at 1:29 pm

  • Reading these comments has made me change my mind about ordering a Snuggie. Thanks peeps!

    Comment by doglover3489 on November 16, 2008 at 4:45 pm

  • i must have seen a different ad, because I expected the price when I ordered, either that or some people just don;t pay attention – imagine that. I instantly pictured my mother all curled up under her blanket while watching TV and having to get in and out of it when going for the remote. I think this is a perfect product. I don’t know how warm it is, but she is getting one for xmas. She already loves me more than my sister, so what do I have to loose?

    Comment by JD on November 16, 2008 at 10:44 pm

  • I agree, this is one of the dumbest products I’ve ever seen. I just blogged about it today myself. Sheesh, do some market research before just throwing out some product.

    Comment by J-Dubb's Theatre on November 17, 2008 at 11:27 pm

  • I don’t remember what it was called but there was a better version of the snuggie when I was a kid (about30 years ago). It could be a regular blanket or you could wrap it around you body, it would snap up the front and had arms. Anyone have one of these? I loved it, wouldn’t go out in public with it, it was made out of a quilt materal. I have been meaning to make myself a new one out of fleece.

    Comment by Sara on November 18, 2008 at 10:55 am

  • Both my girls wanted me to quickly call and buy them…..mommy you get the second one free!!! talk about a hype. Did I mention my kids love making forts around the house with blankies. Forts for the monks, what next.

    Comment by Kelly on November 18, 2008 at 1:22 pm

  • Even though I laughed like crazy when I saw this infomercial, I have to admit that it looks like a good idea. Last winter my heater was broken and I was walking around wrapped up in blankets. So even though blankets are warm, as a few others said, they slip off when you’re typing. This looks like it would take care of that. Now if you want to talk about stupid products just to talk to Billy Mays (or the weirdo with the beard-o as he’s also known)

    Comment by Mindy on November 19, 2008 at 9:19 am

  • I read your thoughts and the replies you received and decided that I really wanted the Snuggie. So, I ordered the buy 1 get 1 free. Well, I ended up ordering 4 for over $86. What they do is once you have placed your order they give you options that are not clearly stated. Every time I have ordered something on the net there HAS ALWAYS been the check out your order stage, not with them. Once I had checked the yes box I went, within nanoseconds, to the confirmation. I am not happy but it now looks like 3 of my friends will be getting snuggies for Christmas.

    Comment by Vicki on November 20, 2008 at 12:28 pm

  • You sons a goats ruined my cheapo one gift fits all on the list outta the xmas stupidity with no fuss, no muss, now you got me laughing so hard I can’t place the order, so you all best come up with something else that makes xmas shopping easy and with some parity

    the comment that still has me rolling on the floor is when someone stands up they become an instant SHAM WOW, to f’n funny I can’t fill in the fields to order the roboshamwow

    thanks to all for screwing up my one stop xmas shopping but the laughs were more than worth it, and you do have too much time on your hands, but if you owned one of these gems you could easily reach the extra time on your hands without struggle

    Comment by Will on November 20, 2008 at 10:38 pm

  • Same thing happened to me. Ordered the 1 (+1) and then when I went to review the order, it was completed and said I bought 4 and came up over 66 dollars! There is a “customer service number” 1-800-566-2888, but everytime I call it it says Allcircuits are busy and the old busy signal kicks in. This seems to occur regardless of the time of day I call. This is why I’m still reluctant to order over the internet.

    Comment by John on November 21, 2008 at 6:54 am

  • I’ve laughed my a– off at some of the above remarks. Whether the Snuggie is stupid or ingenious doesn’t matter. What some of y’all have written about it is what’s important and funny. I’m gonna have to break down and buy one as I’m one of those “old people” who needs to keep warm. However,in spite of it,I’m sure I’ll be sexy and cute in it as I’m always sexy and cute.

    Comment by Carolyn on November 21, 2008 at 7:41 am

  • what a load of hooey.

    Comment by maddy on November 22, 2008 at 12:44 pm

  • So the name “The Snuggie” is really cute. I wanted a description of the product, since I can’t see pictures. I got more than a description here; the comments here are quite amusing. Regardless of whether I think this is a worthwhile purchase, others’ thoughts were enjoyable to read! For the individual on dialysis, what you say makes perfect sense, so bundle up in a Snuggie while you’re hooked up. I’m seeing where I can use this the next time I’m in the hospital…much more comfortable than a hospital blanket! Now if they made them with snaps in the sleeves so that, if you’re on an IV, nurses can adjust and administer stuff through your line without disturbing your Snuggie!
    These comments were great fun to read!

    Comment by NativeRose on November 22, 2008 at 2:54 pm

  • Living in Maine with the high cost of heating, I spend most of the Winter under a pile of blankets. There are only so many layers of shirts and sweaters before you feel like you can’t move however. I love that my Snuggie has arms and comes all the way up to my neck so I feel tucked in to my rocking chair or my spot on the sofa with my Pug and my kitties all around (either under or on top of the blankets themselves) and yet I can still work on the computer (my job) or read or knit, rather than just sit like a lump and watch t.v. for 3 months.

    I also love that it’s not a robe. It’s just a blanket and I can just dump it off like a blanket when I get up to go make popcorn or hot chocolate.

    I bet it would have been really wonderful back in college at those late Fall football games too.

    I think some of you need to think about practical uses for things and get over yourselves.

    Comment by J. Lynne on November 22, 2008 at 4:57 pm

  • Not sure if this was mention but the shipping on the stupid snuggie is as much as the snuggie itself.

    Comment by Jason on November 23, 2008 at 6:36 pm

  • Notice not one person wearing the Snuggie is pictured from the back? They don’t want you to see their freezing butts.

    All these remarks are correct: it’s a monk’s robe, it’s a hospital gown made out of fleece (and who doesn’t LOVE hospital gowns?), it’s a bathrobe worn backwards, you HAVE to buy 2 of these dumb blankets at $10 a piece and pay $16 shipping for them. A total of $36 for some ridiculous looking fleece robes.

    I would add the absurdity of “one size fits all” when you claim it for an XXXXXL size and then just instruct people to roll up the sleezes.

    Like I say all the time: if it’s only “seen on TV” and not available at stores … it’s because it’s junk that the manufacturer knows will be too easily returned to a store for a refund.

    Comment by Goon Squad on November 24, 2008 at 11:43 am

  • PAD Look it up. I have a friend that has PAD and spends a lot of time in a recliner wrapped in blankets. Arms and legs freezing. I am going to order one for him. And one for me, as I have the beginning stages.

    Comment by George on November 24, 2008 at 1:06 pm

  • Many of the posts mention medical problems and how the Snuggie can be beneficial. I can see why that would be so, and I can agree to a certain extent. That would be pretty darn cool on the days that I have to use my wheelchair rather than the walker…when it’s snowing and I’m freezing! When I get cold, I have more muscle spasms, so I can see this. As for the one-size-fits-all deal, that’s not really possible. I mean, a child would be swallowed up in a Snuggie! It seems to me that this could present a potentially dangerous situation for very young children.

    Comment by NativeRose on November 25, 2008 at 7:36 am

  • I ordered a set of Snuggies. I have to agree with J. Lynne back at #61. It’s not a bad idea, & you people are desperate for something so dumb that it makes you look smart.
    I live in California so nobody’s butt will be freezing off here, but my wife will have a more comfortable pregnancy under her Snuggie than under a couple layers of pajamas. Hate if you want, I’m gonna be warm.

    Comment by Adry 5 on November 25, 2008 at 3:33 pm

  • I cannot and will not endorse this Snuggie!! There is only one slanket! And it was here first!!!!

    And I do have a slanket, and it is very wonderful. I use it at work (a freezing office) and I’m warm while I work on my computer. And yes, I do look like an idiot. But I’m a warm idiot.

    Comment by Mandy on November 26, 2008 at 12:10 pm

  • Of all the comments, no one has said how thick – or thin it is, and if you are a 3 or 4X will it still fit, and how long is it really. These are the things I would like to know. Cause I spend alot of time at my computer, and I am NOT your usual one size fits all – unless your ALL is the same size as everyone else’s!So I would like some measurements as to will it fit a 3 or 4X and is it really thick or really thin, and just how long is it.

    Comment by G. Baker on November 26, 2008 at 1:24 pm

  • Never underestimate the amount of stupidity of people in large groups! Individuals ordering this ill-conceived product and paying exorbitant additional shipping and handling charges for “free” copies of it must have had mothers that were scared by somebody stupid while they were in the womb. They should never be permitted to have a credit card or a bank account.

    Comment by J. Corey on November 27, 2008 at 12:11 am

  • My point exactly…”one size fits all” just isn’t possible, and the measurements are important when one looks at purchasing such a thing. I looked at the website, and it actually looked like a useful product, but one tpossible problem occurred to me: How long is this thing, and is it possible for it to get tangled up in the wheelchair on days when I have to use the chair. It would be a truly tragic waste of money and material to have to rescue it out from underneath a power wheelchair. However, I still think it’s a useful product. As for the Slanket: I take it that is the same idea?

    Comment by NativeRose on November 27, 2008 at 7:06 am

  • it’s a fleece hospital johnnie!

    Comment by jjthegman on November 27, 2008 at 8:48 am

  • I’m always cold so tend to have a robe plus a lap throw. I need hands free since usually have laptop computer going too. Why trash the product – it’s not like anyone’s trying to make him buy or use one.

    I don’t think I’d take it outdoors, particularly, but then my days of attending outdoor events in the cold are past (I hope). As for wheelchair? I use one sometimes also but am adept at making sure my lap throw in up off the floor before engaging it.

    Comment by Janie on November 27, 2008 at 11:21 am

  • Re: Stevedit (post on Nov12,2008) Maybe you should reconsider your criteria for “idiots.” One may be a blatant insolent one himself who can’t spell the word BROWSER. (Hint Hint) Honey, I am a cheerleaer for Dallas and a Yale graduate; and we ALL use ours, especially on route up north. The rest of you who complain we all know it’s because you’re all cheap. Go Cowboys!!!

    Comment by mudbug27 on November 28, 2008 at 2:20 am

  • I really wanted to buy the snuggie for my family. The special that they are running is buy one get one free. When I went to purchase two snuggies, which I would get two free. When I was preparing to checkout and pay, I noticed that they were charging me the shipping charge of $7.95 X 4 = $31.80. I dont mind paying the shipping charge for two, but I will not pay the shipping charge for 4. This is ridiculous! I’ll just keep using my Poncho Liner.

  • Can ANYONE who has ordered this product tell us the length?? Will my toes stick out or is it longer than 6 feet? And how about the width?

  • I went to order a snuggie for my daughter and get the free one for a friend. There was NO “confirm order” I just got slapped with a page that said “Thanks for your order” and had the total at the bottom.. which looked like this..

    Shipping Amount 47.70
    Tax Amount 0.00
    Total Amount 97.55
    WTF!!! I called and the lady told me I had to wait 48 hours to call about an order placed online.. RIP OFF!

    Comment by Robert on November 28, 2008 at 2:46 pm

  • What is wrong with yopu people ?

    Do you not understand that these blankets cost FAR LESS than the $ 7.95 shipping charge to manufacture (China ? … !)

    So, they make TONS of profit on the first one they sell you AND they still make even MORE PROFIT on the second “free” one ! These people
    are just very smart retailers selling to pretty
    naive consumers.

  • my wife wants one.. damn it!! she wants one for christmas..

    Comment by David P. on November 28, 2008 at 4:54 pm

  • i think its a good idea! if ur at home cudled up on the couch whatching tv, and you wanna fast forward something or answer the phone you gotta get your hand out of the blanket and it gets all screwed up, this thing has huge sleeves you can keep ur hands in the sleeves until u need to use them. HOWEVER, i do agree w/ u tht the whole sports game is kinda pushing, but its great for sitting on the couch at home. i would like to here bac form u so u can make some more stupid cmtns.

    Comment by Joe on November 28, 2008 at 8:08 pm

  • one size fits all? and this is touted to a lazy couch potato society who are obese any some could weigh in at 500LBS so how will snuggie proclaim its snug fit? is this like a medieval moomoo cult robe?? well if this does become popular in school etc as a fashion thing it would definitely be funny

    Comment by bobo on November 29, 2008 at 7:35 am

  • I had something similar to this 25 years ago, except is was quilted, and zipped in the front. So this is not new, only “outdated” actually.

    Comment by re-make on November 29, 2008 at 9:21 am

  • I know people that wanted this dumb ass product can you believe they are out of stock and back ordered until after the holidays noone is actually getting them for a long while!

    Comment by Liz on November 29, 2008 at 10:38 am

  • Could someone who has actually seen the product rate it? I think it is the stupidest thing you could send money on but only because if you are that cold, wear a coat. I am wondering if it is thicker than the tissue paper it looks like on the commercial.

    Comment by toolie on November 29, 2008 at 5:43 pm

  • I think it’s a great idea! Since I can’t sew, I’m ordering 3 from Harriet Carter, I added it up both ways and that one is cheaper…
    I have RA and on disability so income is limited, therefore I keep the heater down low. Engery prices you know… so I’m ordering for me and 2 of my friends. I don’t go anywhere anyway! Go ahead and laugh, I don’t care!

  • I have read all of the above comments and I must say some of them are hilarious. By the way no one mentioned that there is a snuggie blanket made for horses. Don’t know if they are made by the same company but wouldn’t that be a real hoot now. Actually I think the snuggie idea isn’t bad and never really had heard of the slanket coming out before but don’t doubt it. People like ripping each other off all of the time don’t they? There really are no more original ideas out there. I did a little investigating myself as to availability and found that Carol Wright Gifts sells them online in Blue only. Only don’t try to order one they are out of stock until January. As I remember the size for those who want to know is 71×54″. So not too bad a size. As for buying one and waiting I think I will pass on that. For those who just want one snuggie Carol Wright Gifts is selling theirs for $14.99. If you buy two though the price jumps up higher than on the official snuggie site. Anyway happy shopping for whatever you are looking for and have a happy holiday.

    Comment by Richard on November 30, 2008 at 12:19 am

  • So, yeah, I work for Macy’s and I see cute robes all the time, and seriously, the cheapest robe that I have seen is about 40 dollars. So, why not buy this warm one, find a stretch of fleece and use that as a belt and just use the thing as a bathrobe? I am a 28 year old woman and am cold all the time, so I think it’s pretty cool (or warm lol). The only downside is the shipping, but hey, it’s still cheaper than the robes we have on sale at Macy’s!

    Comment by Erin on November 30, 2008 at 7:30 am

  • My husband and I have slankets, they are much larger than a robe and actually amazing! Trying to read or flip channels through the holes in my afghan drive me nuts…NOT ANYMORE!!!! It doesn’t have a zipper b/c one isn’t needed. I will however attempt to make them now b/c I don’t want to pay $50 for anyone else.

    Comment by SLANKET=LOVE on November 30, 2008 at 10:25 am

  • Also note that their “upgrade” adds 2 more deluxe snuggies to your order. My total can out to over $80. There was no chance to ok the amount before the order went through. I called but I have to wait 2 days and call back when it’s in their system before they can change the order.

    Comment by cliff on November 30, 2008 at 10:46 am

  • I was so upset when I couldn’t order my snuggie in monastery brown!!! Then I would be warm in the monestary and be well suited for san diego padres games!!! I love the part of the commercial where theyre all crowded around the bonfire…. They might as well all hold hands and chant! For everyone who is willing to wear a snuggie to a sporting event, get the burgundy one….

    Comment by Football monk on November 30, 2008 at 11:23 am

  • Paul — your comments are absolutely hilarious, I am alone at work right now laughing my ass off so loud! I went online for the site so I could buy it for my husband as a gag Xmas gift. We have been making fun of this dumbass product everytime we see the commercial…My favorite is that you can even hold your baby in your arms — who cares if the baby is cold, as long as you are warm and tasty in your frickin backwards robe. I will be printing your comments and attaching them to the tag of the snugglies which I am giving away to all my firneds who also think it is the most retarted product out there right now. Yeah, I hate that they will be making money off me — but I just can’t resist the hilarity on Xmas morning when my friends and fam open their blanket with arms. fXXXin hilarious!

    Comment by Jen Heim on November 30, 2008 at 12:00 pm

  • opps, I said warm and tasty — I meant warm and toasty…don’t want someone to critique my post like above…really people, get a life!

    Comment by Jen Heim on November 30, 2008 at 12:01 pm

  • This is the most idiotic thing I have ever seen in my life. The commercial is ridiculous. Oh Yeah. I can just see my family gathered around the bonfire wearing our snuggies. What a joke! Same thing goes for wearing a snuggie to a sporting event. You better be ready to be made fun out of. Secondly, I’m sure one size does not fit all. Children and shorter adults will be tripping all over them resulting in injuries.

  • $31 Shipping was added to the order after everything else was added. We only ordered the advertised buy one get one free. What a ripoff. I hate deceitful practices. liars!!!

    Comment by Deceitful practice hater on November 30, 2008 at 7:14 pm

  • Actually, the website www. freesnuggie.com says:
    Buy 1 Snuggie with Free Book Light for
    $19.95 + $7.95 P&H, and receive a second Snuggie FREE,just pay an additional $7.95 P&H!

    $19.95+$19.95+$ 7.95+$ 7.95= $55.80 or $27.90 each

    Compare that to the Slanket that sells for $44.95 on Amazon, but they do have that sought after Chocolate San Diego Padre Brown
    This isn’t too bad for a robe even if the infomercial is totally hilarious.

    Thanks for a great thread.

    Comment by SnuggieBear on November 30, 2008 at 8:00 pm

  • WARNING!! This is acutally a fraudulent outfit. The merchandise (for one blanket) will cost $ 19.95 but they will charge you $14.95 for “P & H” and an ADDITIONAL $ 31.80 for shipping.

    SO, IN OTHER WORDS, $ 46.75 FOR SHIPPING AND HANDLING.

    BUT, their warehouse is EMPTY so your order will only ship in 4 weeks or so.

    Not funny actually – beware!!

    Comment by Ellen on December 1, 2008 at 2:02 pm

  • i’m just wondering if the person who wrote this actually checked out this site. Unfortunately my father was scammed by freesnuggie.com. he actually thought this was a good idea and placed an order for what he thought was 4 snuggies. however he was charged for 8 and an insane amount for s&H. Not only that but he never got his order. When we tried to contact customer service as listed on the site the number they provide 800-566-2888 isn’t even there number. It belongs to some membership service who never even heard of snuggie. I did research and found that the site is registered to another company digitaltargetmarketing.com who doesn’t answer their phone or return messages. While doing my research I found other people who also had been scammed by freesnuggie.com. This would appear to be a scam site under all the circumstances, and I think instead of writing about how stupid you think they are, write about what this site is doing to consumers.

    Comment by Kimmy on December 2, 2008 at 9:19 am

  • so what if its a backwards robe. you sit on a sofa your backside is already staying warm from the couch. the snuggie keeps your front warm while still giving you use of your hands just as the commercial describes it. albeit i wouldn’t take it outdoors but I’m sure it would be way better than a normal blanket

    Comment by Kevin on December 3, 2008 at 12:52 am

  • Snuggie Bear and Claudia, your math is off. I ordered these over the weekend, I was charged $35.85. $19.95 for the 2 blankets, $7.95 twice for the P&H for each blanket=$35.85. Total of $17.93 each. Not bad for something my daughter and I both want. Yes, it won’t ship for 4 weeks, but nothing in their advertising said anything any different, so FRAUDULENT is the wrong word. No fraud, just not exactly the time frame I expected.

    Comment by Robin on December 3, 2008 at 11:26 am

  • LOL!!! I love your review. When I first saw the commercial I had the ‘mute’ button on and I thought they were all some kind of monk cult for a second.

    I am enjoying reading the comments, even the sensible ones.
    Apparently, poster #93 (Anonymous) has no life either. My stomach hurts from laughing so hard.

    Comment by Pam I. Am on December 3, 2008 at 1:14 pm

  • NO STOCK, NO INVENTORY
    and they won’t have any for 4 more weeks, which means:

    NO ONE IS GETTING THEM IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!!!!

    This is such a SCAM!!!
    They are doing all these commercials and all these people think they are going to get them for Christmas Presents, and NO ONE is going to get them in time for Christmas, maybe in time for Valentines Day!!!!

    SCAM!!!!!

    Comment by Upset in MD on December 4, 2008 at 7:02 pm

  • We all realize, of course, whether we’re making fun of the product or not…that we got here because we Googled the freekin’ thing, right? (and thus showed interest in purchasing it)

    Comment by me on December 4, 2008 at 8:53 pm

  • How about we get some dog snuggies??

    Comment by Annonymous on December 5, 2008 at 4:24 pm

  • Actually, I really want one. It looks amazingly comfortable…

    But I don’t think it’s worth the money. Wouldn’t it be a whole lot cheaper to buy a sheet of fleece, and just cut a hole for the head, sew on a hood made of the same fleece material, and put a seam under the arms? I actually really want to do that.

    Comment by Me on December 5, 2008 at 4:57 pm

  • Oh my gosh! I am laughing so f*in hard, I think I may have peed a little! My sides hurt so bad from laughing- no need for an ab workout tonight! SWEEEEEET!

    I WAS just googling the damn thing to see what people were saying because my hubby is always whining about being cold… he is a solid man-size and I think he would look AB-SOOO-LOOOOOOOTELY RIDICULOUS in this thing, but his eyes lit up like it was Christmas morning when we saw the infomercial. I’m serious. Sad really. But anyway–

    Thank you Thank you Thank you!!! Tis the season to share the joy!!!! yeeeeehaww! I also think it’s HILARIOUS how many people take the time to read the posts and then tell people to get a life. Seriously? Freaks. Go away then. You don’t belong in this place. Why do you feel like you have to tell us to stop “critiquing.” It’s a free world and if you don’t like my opinion, then… well… who asked you anyway!

    Oh and FESTIVUS!!!!! HAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAH
    Bipolars UNITE!

    Comment by spaznchick on December 6, 2008 at 1:31 am

  • cold hands often bother me, i wouldnt buy a snuggie to get beaten at a sporting event, i’d buy a snuggie to sit on my couch reading a book with my grandchild who conveniently gets to wear the free snuggie i get with my paid for snuggie. cold hands often bother me when i read books with grandchildren… problem SOLVED.

    Comment by mamma on December 6, 2008 at 2:33 am

  • Wow! Thank you guys for all the info and the hilarious comments. My husband wants one for Christmas but when I went to the website it said 2-6 weeks for delivery. I’m glad I didn’t order. He’ll just have to be satisfied with sitting on the couch under a regular blanket (I don’t think he was planning on wearing it outside).

    Comment by Amy on December 6, 2008 at 7:49 am

  • I’m intrigued. I couldn’t tear myself away from the commercial and at least it wasn’t Billy Mays shouting at me. lol And the free book light is a great bonus! And next year for Halloween … my entire family will have instant Alvin and the Chipmunks costumes! ;)

    Comment by Shelly on December 6, 2008 at 9:59 am

  • where they get you is the “get 1 free” it actually takes 2 in order to be properly protected from the cold. i put 1 on conventionaly front side then the free 1 like a bathrobe. now i am protected. hmmmmmmmmmm being male though, i wish it had a fly…

  • I can tell you don’t live anywhere cold. It’s not difficult to get your hands out from under a blanket but it is cold especially if you are reading a book. You should live in the part of the country where people sleep with caps on their heads. Yes, we have heat but it’s still cold. There’s more to this country than California.

    Comment by Chelsea on December 7, 2008 at 10:35 pm

  • Do not order this product. It is a mess. I tried to order 1 with a buy one get one free. After ordering one, the website asked me to pick the color for the free one, which I did. It waited til the last screen to show the order (after taking the credit card info). It looked like I got the buy one get one free deal TWICE–a total of 4 blankets and a total of thirty something dollars for shipping/handling. I had to find a commercial online to get a customer service number, which then gives you a number that says, “All circuits are busy” every time you call. There’s no way to edit your order online, and they make it near impossible to reach them. Feels like a scam and a mistake. My kids wanted these. Now, I am getting 4 and a potload of shipping and handling. This bites.

    Comment by Wendy on December 8, 2008 at 7:22 am

  • I thought it might be silly but my son asked for one for Christmas so why not? Then there was the buy one get one so I’ll use one too. But the part that really sounds good is that it’s open in the back. If you’re a gal and ever tried to go to the bathroom while you’re wearing a big bulky robe you know it just doesn’t work. So the robe comes off and you get to sit on a nice cold toilet seat to boot. At least with a snuggie I don’t have to undress to go potty!

    Comment by Nancy on December 8, 2008 at 8:09 am

  • LOLOL—they all look like they should be banging on tambourines at the airport. lolol
    You know another one that I remember? “The potty putter”—THAT one was hilarious, too.

    Comment by Jennifer on December 8, 2008 at 2:20 pm

  • I agree this could be a scam!!!! I just ordered one today (did not see the comments on this website)and they are over charging my credit card, so I tried to call them. I have found 3 800#’s and no one answers phones, you get the busy beep etc. I want to cancel my order ASAP. The website you order these on is not even secure and the receipt is from a do-not-reply email box. I am cancelling my credit card right now. Do not put your credit card number into this website…the site automatically puts the order through with no confirmation screen. I do alot of online ordering and the minute I ordered this I knew something was suspicious.

    Comment by Cold in Nigeria on December 8, 2008 at 7:34 pm

  • I just became the proud owner of 4 Snuggies (they arrived, today,….but we just got in, from out-of-town,…so discovered them sitting outside the door,….2 for upstairs, and two, for down.)
    I got on my PC to catch up on mail,…and my mate,….freezing,…excitedly opened one of the packages.
    The ads hadn’t said anything about ‘wearing it backwards’
    we thought, when we ordered them, that they were some sort of tube-type something,…that kept you warm,…EVERYWHERE.,…front and back. (the TV and Harriet Carter pix appear to show that)(afterall,…they also spoke of walking around in it)
    OK.
    My mate puts it on,…and immediately complains that he can’t find any way to CLOSE the open side (he’s put it on, like a robe) there’s a square pointed flap on each side,…that attaches to nothing,…and no belt. I can sew. And I’m Very creative. I can modify this thing to have anchor points to make it less drafty and more comfy for moving around in,….but, quite frankly, it seems like a lot of extra work for a product we had THOUGHT would be ‘finished’ and ready to use when we got it.
    And the fleece is THIN. We live in a new house we’re building, that so far, has no heat. Just a couple of small space heaters you have to sit on top of, to gain any benefit from.
    The good news, is, that if we try, wearing BOTH snuggies,…one, backwards, and one, like a robe,…..AND add a sash tie,….this thing MAY be do-able, for some warmth and mobility,….as soon as I figure out a way to anchor those loose corners,..(I’m thinking, maybe, some snaps,…)

    Anyway,…I’m cold and going to bed,…my Snuggie still in it’s bag,……We got um from Harriet Carter,….saved about 2 $ off the Snuggie site total cost (for the purchase of 4),…..My husband discovered the book light in the bag,…the one from the TV commercials. Harriet Carter doesn’t mention the light in their own ad,…..maybe they’re un-aware that it’s in there. But just for the record,…..I saw that same, identical book light,…at Books-a-Million, on Friday,…for 15 or 16 Dollars,….so,…a good deal ? No. Not necessarily all that great……a MONTH ago,….I bought 4 of those lights,….at one of those ‘Everything’s a Dollar’ stores,……less-see,…60/64 $ worth of book lights, for ONLY 4 dollars….THAT was a Great Deal !!! And now, I have, 4, more.

    On the positive side,…it is a FUN light to play with,….very smoothly un-folds itself like a Star Wars Battle Droid,…

    Comment by Shara on December 8, 2008 at 8:41 pm

  • I would use it when I’m playing video games, but that’s about it. The “buy one, get one free” bit is a rip off though. You pay $18.90 in shipping plus the $20 for the first one, so you’re pretty much buying both. I was gonna get one of these, but the shipping costs are rediculous and after reading some of these reviews, I don’t want to send them my credit card number. Thanks!

    Comment by Erin on December 8, 2008 at 9:06 pm

  • I wanted to order one and get the one free for older kids who sit up on the computer when we drop the temperatrue down at night. It looks like a good idea. But when I bring up the website it comes up with the error message about the security. I have not placed the order since I don’t want trust it. I am thinking about calling the number but maybe I will go by the other blanket on Amazon who I know I can trust.

    Comment by joni on December 9, 2008 at 9:38 am

  • I came here because I’m smelling a rat and wanted to see if anyone has been ripped off by these people. I ordered 1 last week. (You have to be careful, the ordering process tries to trick you into buying and spending more than you want – One example: You think you’re picking a color for your free one, but you are actually ordering another one, and once you do it, you can’t correct it because there’s no order review or confirmation).

    Anyway, A charge hasn’t shown up yet on my credit card statement, so I went to a web site connected to them to look for a contact to check on the order, because I want it for Christmas. There was one reviewer comment from somebody complaining that he never received his, and when he called customer service he was told that his order didn’t exist, even though he had an e-mail confirmation and order number. He said the agent was very rude, and he canceled his order, but 2 months later his credit card was charged, but he never received the thing. Today I tried to call the customer service number, and there’s never an answer.

    So here’s the question….. HAS ANYONE WHO ORDERED ONE OF THESE ACTUALLY RECEIVED ONE? I’ve skimmed over most of the above comments, and I think the only one who said they have actually received one as of today ordered from somewhere other than the Snuggie web site.

    This goes beyond whether or not this is a stupid product. I’m trying to find out if this is a total scam that should be reported.

    Comment by dave on December 9, 2008 at 12:47 pm

  • hey,
    just wanted to say the snuggie is nice but it’s not for large people. It’s ok but not the greatest. I would suggest spending the extra money on the Slanket. Very big (almost too much) but every inch of you is covered plus you get different colors. I love my slanket the snuggie is ok. I got the ones with the pockets but anyone can add a pocket.

    Comment by Mel on December 9, 2008 at 2:03 pm

  • As others have said, the customer service and website are pathetic!!! The front page makes it look like you can change the colors of the items you order later…YOU CAN’T!!! All of the ones we ordered are in the first color I selected.

    As someone else also pointed out, there is no order check page, you click to advance and get a “Your order is being processed” message.

    I received an e-mail confirmation within about 5 minutes, which has “Do Not Reply” to it with NO provisions to modify/change the order via the internet.

    After spending 25 minutes of speed dial on their 800 number and getting repeated busy signals, I finally got through, was put on hold for 5 minutes, and THEN told, “We can’t change your order until 48-72 hours and to call back on Thursday.” (Today is Tuesday!)

    Whether you like the product or not, think it’s a rip-off or not, customer service…actually customer disservice like this should not be rewarded with additional orders.

    DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY!!!

    Comment by Rick on December 9, 2008 at 5:54 pm

  • We’ve got it solved !!!!!
    Ya take the one you bought, and the ‘free’ one, and stitch them, together, up each side,…

    THEN,….stitch from each top corner,…toward the middle,….leave about 12 inches of the middle open (6 inches, each side of the middle)

    Toss it up in the air,…..duck underneath as it seattles down,….shove your arms through the nearest pair of sleeves,….and curl up in a chair.

    One size, Then,…Should ‘fit all’ (If it Doesn’t, I don’t wanna share personal space with someone That amply blessed) You can’t really ‘walk around’ in it,…without a belt of some sort. But there’s no cold spots,….and there’s room, inside, for several cats,…

    And get um from Harriet Carter.
    They’re reliable.
    They told me (last week) if I was hopeing to get them for Christmas gifts, that they had had so many requests for them, that they were on back-order and wouldn’t arrive til the end of Dec.,…

    I said that was okay.
    A mere week, later, I had my whole order,…still two + weeks before Christmas.

    Seriously,….if you get them from H. Carter,…they’ve been around for YEARS.
    I gave my order to a real live, English-speaking human, and there was absolutely NO mis-understanding about ‘how many’ I was ordering,…there was one price, for ‘one’,.(14.98)..and “Two for $ 28.50″

    I said I wanted “2,…orders,…of Two”
    and the lady said “Okay,….that’s Two, 28.50 orders for a total of 4 Snuggies,…Got cha ! ”

    AND she gave me a total for my order which totally agreed with my own calculations,….

    AND (my overall order was sorta big) she told me if I ordered ONE more item,…she’d give me a code to get shipping, on my Next order,…for free.
    I added a 4.98 dollar item, I’d planned to get in my next order (anyway) and she gave me the free-shipping code,…I was already over their max. order, (i.e. a max. shipping cost)…so there wasn’t even any additional shipping charged for the addition of the extra item.

    Single, I don’t much like the snuggie. sewn/doubled, together,….it’s comfy, (in a non-heated house) with all the additional cloth,…..with a 12 inch head opening,….it can be pulled up, in back, and also keeps your head and neck warm,……
    So I’m glad I got 4, from H. Carter,….and Darn glad I didn’t try and order from the Snuggie site, after all everyone else here has run into.

    H. Carter can Easily be found, on-line,…and there’s a toll-free number to order from, and by-pass ‘un-secured’ on-line ordering.

  • Beware – I fear the booklight is just a ruse…and is really a mini webcam that snaps a picture, you hear a robot voice say “smile-you-have-been-snuggied” and it posts your picture to a “look-at me-wearing-a-snuggie-looking-like-an-idiot” website!

  • I ordered four “Snuggies” for Christmas gifts . They had not billed my C.C. and when I finally got thru they said it would take four weeks before shipping . I canceled my order . People should not market a product they cannot deliver !

    Comment by Art on December 10, 2008 at 8:37 am

  • Most of the comments i’ve seen must be from young people because Snuggies have been around as far back as 30 years ago as I had one which was made out of a comforter, not real thick but wow did it keep me warm. I’m planning to make my own now from one of my older comforters. I’m tired of freezing in the Michigan winters and to curl up in one of these (forget public showings) is to be in heaven. I bet most of you making fun of them dont live in the frigid north. HAH!

    Comment by Lorre on December 10, 2008 at 12:59 pm

  • Well, I have to comment on this one. Iam 62 years old and get so cold in the evenings that sometimes I have to go to be to get warm (this is no matter what house I live in, our house is kept at a normal temperature). I was so gullable, the snuggie sounded so good to me. Well, my ” buy one ge tone free” just arrived and I really feel stupid so I searched the internet and found you. You are nearly right on target with this product for the stupid (I wonder what my IQ is?) Really makes me angry. It’s not like a robe at all because you can’t wrap it around you and yep, you put it on backwards leaving my back which for me is the most vulnarble to the cold. I feel like that V-8 commercial where someone slaps themselves on the side of the head and says “I could have had”… in this case I could have had a nice heavey robe, I really didn’t need another free snuggie, but that’s how they were being sold; guess they need to get rid of them. Well, I guess I’ll ge back to my robe that was my mom’s that she gave me about 40 years ago. It’s like a security blanket to me,but it’s wearing thin. Does anyone remember when those nice heavey robes were the craze?? Someone can make money and bring them back; just a nice,heavy cozy robe. For now, I guess I’ll see if there are any out there. Just call me cold,tired and stupid. Snuggie sounded so good to someone who gets cold and tired after a hard day’s work. :O( ‘

  • I wish I had done my homework before I ordered.
    I got hit for $127.55 after ordering the bogo and upgrading. They charged me $10 ea instead of $5 ea for upgrade. I think I am going to wind up with 6 if I can not stop this order which I am going to do my best to make happen. It sounded like a great Christmas idea! Very DECEPTIVE Practices!!!!! There is a MGL93A in Mass that probably won’t apply here because they are out of Connecticut. I know I will be checking into it though. Even in Connecticut.

    Comment by Irrate Snuggie Customer on December 10, 2008 at 7:10 pm

  • i ordered one for my wife, same thing happened to me, i ordered the up grade, picked out a diff. color for my free one and then they charged me 127.55, so i called them, they told me that they cant see my order and cant help me, then they told me that seeing i placed the order from a differant site i need to try back in a few days! i ordered it from their site!THEY SUCK. I THOUGHT I COULD MAKE THE MISSES HAPPY, SHES ALWAYS COLD but i get myself into a big mess. how can they have order forms that are not clear? they are very snakey..

    Comment by paul on December 11, 2008 at 10:09 am

  • I’m laughing in hysterics here reading the posts, my mom expressed that she wanted one, OK, I found this ludicrous, the commercial was some psychiatric wards recreational groups project maybe? OK, let me clarify, order now cancelled, a most desperate moment of ordering a desired gift. The automated phone ordering process leaving you without an order number, total, confirmation, last thing they state AFTER the order is placed, shipping is 2 to 6 weeks, I’m thinking omg, huge mistake, suspicious as hell, bad feeling, that voice in my head screaming at me, you idiot!!!!!!!!!!, it looks rather monestary/cultish, so ugly, and is a backwards robe, I fail to understand why anyone would want one, but ordering it ONLY as my mom said she wanted one for bizarre unknown reason. That sick feeling something not right for 2.5 days, FINALLY got an open phone line at the customer service number tonight, talk about pushy customer service ppl, omg, took 15 minutes to get it through I was cancelling the order, which they had wrong anyway, the scheduled delivery date was Jan 16th at least!!!!!!!!! What holiday are the snugglie cult celebrating???????, took awhile, but got the snugglie cult member to cancel the order placed in a moment of stupidity and desperation, but horrific monastary/cult garb coming my way or to my mom, I’ll get her a heated throw, it’s not that damn hard to get your hands out from under a blanket, I never saw the slanket, am now curious, not that I want one of them either. Sadly, someone is becoming a zillionaire from these, and please may they not become a fashion statement, an item worn outdoors or to events, oh please h*ll no!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Barb on December 12, 2008 at 12:43 am

  • I have to say that I really enjoyed the review of the infomercial. I laughed so hard I thought I was going to pass out. Funny stuff.

    Comment by Lisa on December 12, 2008 at 1:42 am

  • To Barb…Comment # 143….Your story is exactly the same as mine. After being sick about my non-confirmed order for 2 days and wondering how many hundreds they were going to charge me, I did get through on the 800# and I did talk to a very nice rep which canceled my order and even gave me a confirmation number.But I am still checking my CC everyday to see if any charges will be coming through. In that crazy telephone order…I had ordered (according to the rep) 6 blankets and a hearing device!!!!!(not wanted or needed) These comments have been so funny, I’m glad I found this page….yes I did google it. But I’m glad to know I am not the only …er…not stupid, but maybe naive one.My 10 year old daughter keeps asking for one of these blankets and I thought the grandparents would like them too. I saw one like it at a “Bed, Bath and Beyond” for $39.99 , so I thought $19.95 for 2 was a good deal. HA! Silly me. Just add $7.95 per blanket plus add $5.00 more per blanket to upgrade to a good one, and just watch the total grow…Yikes!!John in comment #59 gave the customer service 800#. Yes you will get a busy signal but keep trying. You’ll get through and cancel that order. Nothing worse than getting taken in a scam.

    Comment by Vanessa on December 12, 2008 at 10:59 am

  • Mel, you wrote: ,”It’s ok but not the greatest. I would suggest spending the extra money on the Slanket. Very big (almost too much) but every inch of you is covered”

    I thought it sounded like a good idea as a gift, but people at this blog have mentioned they bought snuggies only to find the back is open… you said the slanket covers you all around, so I clicked your link to the amazon listing for slankets. Are you aware the slanket is selling for two hundred bucks on Amazon now? I mean, I remember looking them up a couple weeks ago and they were listed for fifty bucks, but now it’s two hundred? What THE heck?

    I’m just going to forget about this gift idea… afterall, it’s just a damn blanket with sleeves and if a girl like my girlfriend can walk around fully-clothed indoors with a hooded sweatshirt on and a comforter wrapped around her and still say she is freezing, I don’t think any sleeved-blanket has the power to remedy the situation.

    Comment by RPG Masta on December 12, 2008 at 1:04 pm

  • omg! my friend didn’t believe me that this was an actual product I saw on TV! I googled it and found your blog…. this is nothing more than a bathrobe turned backward. LOLLLLL thanks for the hilarious commentary!

  • Want to see all the ridiculous “upgrade now” and “add this for only $$$”? Go through the checkout process with all fake information and put in Visa card number 4111111111111111 (this particular number is considered “valid” but won’t work so it won’t hurt anybody). I like the idea of the product, but the checkout process so shady. I need to find someone who can make me one!

    Comment by Lollipop on December 13, 2008 at 2:18 am

  • I can’t believe you wrote a blog saying this is a stupid product. It’s a good idea for lounging on the couch or even on the bed and it keeps your arms warm while reading, eating a snack, using a laptop, or even just clicking the remote. I think you could use your webpage for something more constructive. It you don’t like the product fine, but keep your ridiculous ideas to your yourself.

    Comment by Laurie on December 13, 2008 at 8:51 am

  • If I see anyone in public with this product, I will sneak up and give them a real snuggie!

    Comment by synonym for wedgie on December 13, 2008 at 10:18 am

  • Holy crap. Just agree to disagree. Some are going to like it and others will think its stupid. Just like all your arguments. It’s ridiculous you people are making such a big deal. If you like it, GREAT! Just know that some people don’t…and vice versa. Goodness. Get a life people.

AND WHEN YOUR DONE JUST TAKE YOUR SNUGGIE OUTSIDE AND DOUSE IT WITH GASOLINE AND DROP A MATCH ” EASY CLEAN UP ” AND FOR AN ADDED BONUS YOU CAN USE YOUR NEW BOOK LITE TO SEE IF IT IS DARK OUTSIDE . RON POPEIL GET OUT OF THE WAY HERE COMES SNUGGIE

    Comment by james on December 14, 2008 at 6:04 am

  • The thing that bothers me about the ad plus website is the total lack of technical information one could use to judge the product. These questions are not answered: It is made of quote “luxurious super soft fleece” what does that mean? What is this “fleece” made of? Wool, cotton? nylon? blend of all of the above? If a blend, what ratio? What are the washing instructions? What if I got it and it says dry clean only? What is the thickness, thread count of this “fleece”? And as far as that goes, what is the actual finished size of the product? Even a 12 x 20 tarp finishes out at 11- 9 1/2 by 19 -9 1/2… So how can a one size fit all possibly work? How can a cloak that fits my child fit my mutant 7 – 2 neighbor? I looked into buying one for my wife, however, you may be able to tell I am more that worried about a product with so much missing / hidden information.

    Comment by polly pub on December 14, 2008 at 4:34 pm

  • I don’t understand everyone on here that is making fun of the Snuggie! Their commercial is pure genius and the Snuggie is my favorite thing in the whole world. It keeps me warm while I’m out icefishing….and boy do i love to icefish!!!!! You should buy one!

    Comment by polly pub on December 14, 2008 at 4:40 pm

  • I LOVE SNUGGIES!

    Comment by polly pub on December 14, 2008 at 4:40 pm

  • I’m sure Snuggies would work great in some situations. Looking at this in the burgundy red color though makes me wonder,”are you trying to keep warm or start your own cult?”

    Comment by Jim on December 14, 2008 at 9:11 pm

  • It’s just people trying to make money in the easiest way possible, yes, people who wear them look like they belong in a cult, and the commercial is an even more stupid creation: they just name things you do.. “you can snack” ummm… ooookkaaaay, I can do that just as easy wearing a sweater! It is funny though, and it makes me realize just how STUPID people can be

    Comment by Evangeline on December 15, 2008 at 12:39 am

  • I just ordered and got the rip-off where my total came up to $75 or so when I only ordered $30 worth of snuggie. I called the toll free # but of course it’s busy. Any updates on this? Someone said this scam is out of CT. Is there a place to call and turn them in? The credit card company said I have to wait until the order is filled until I can file a report. I appreciate any help.

    Comment by David on December 15, 2008 at 11:25 am

  • I was going to order a Snuggie (plus get the free one) for my wife and my mom, but when the total came to over $38, i just closed the site. Same old double shipping and handling lie! There are no honest/fair companies, even in a horrible economy!

    Comment by George on December 15, 2008 at 1:26 pm

  • Some of these comments are pretty stupid if you ask me. This is something to wear around the house, so for someone to say that people would look stupid wearing it out in public…well, it’s not made for that. How about reading the details once in a while.
    I bought one for my wife and she loves it, and she doesn’t wear it out in public or to work.

    Comment by Jim on December 15, 2008 at 1:31 pm

  • Not sure about it being a scam. I just went to their site and you get 2 of them for $19.99, plus an actual rip-off of $16 for shipping, so it would come to $36 for 2 snuggies and 2 book lights. Not bad if you ask me.

    Comment by Jim on December 15, 2008 at 1:33 pm

  • Thanks for the reviews looks like Im not the only one against thieves like these. To think that some people fall for this crap. I personally think it might even be a nice product, but no company name no address to back it up and on the phone nothing else than a recorder, you have to be a total idiot….then 6-8 weeks delivery and its only got 30 days money back guarantee////take me money and ron for the heels mon!!!

    Comment by EHJ on December 15, 2008 at 5:09 pm

  • Hey Jim,

    So you say, “This is something to wear around the house, so for someone to say that people would look stupid wearing it out in public…well, it’s not made for that. How about reading the details once in a while.”

    Jim, did you bother watching the Snuggie TV commercial? The video that is on this very post you are commenting on??

    Here is a picture from the Snuggie TV commercial:

    Notice those words on the bottom??

    Comment by Paul Lucas on December 15, 2008 at 7:50 pm

  • Ok i bought 2 of these – and rate it adequate product. I use them mostly as blankets on the bed and only occasionally when we lose electricity and this concrete block house holds the cold like an arctic cave.
    I am disappointed that the fabric of the snuggie. i was 1/2 expecting a better fabric. Instead of buying this, i should have purchased 2 blankets at wal-mart for 1/3 of the price.
    But at least i can walk outside in the morning in front of my neighbors in my cult like robe & freak em out a little. LOL

    Comment by goldie okeefe on December 16, 2008 at 10:42 am

  • I am so fed up with this company! I don’t usually Blog… I placed an order in Oct. and just received the package last week December! I upgraded to the “Deluxe” model, it was supposed to be thicker. I would hate to see the “original”. This thing is not as thick as a cheap Wal-Mart blanket. If you hold it up to a window, you can see the light! To top it off, you are supposed to receive a free book light with each Snuggie. I received four Snuggies and ZERO book lights. I have tried to call customer service a minimum of five times a day every day since the package arrived. Usually I get a busy signal but occasionally they will disconnect. Finally today I got through to customer service after I used caller ID block! I was on hold for about twenty minutes, only to be told that the computers were down and I would have to call back. I asked for an email address, and they claimed they did not have access to one due to computers being down. I explained the problem getting through on the phone and asked if they could call me when the systems were up, of course that was not possible. Fed up I decided to screw the book lights and asked if I could have instructions for returning everything and again…computers are down! There was no invoice, receipt, or proof of purchase in the package at all.

    NO MORE AS SEEN ON TV FOR ME!!!

    Comment by Janet on December 16, 2008 at 12:31 pm

  • for real onthe price. Why not say they are 5.00 off for a pair and advertise FREE shipping. ffs

    Comment by Patriot on December 16, 2008 at 1:31 pm

  • I just received my order of 4 deluxe snuggies & 4 book lights from an order placed when? (It did say 4-6 weeks and mine came in about 3 weeks) The online Order Confirmation has no date of order and no phone or email contact. The box with the snuggies has no paperwork of any kind and no info on what it is or how to use.

    Ordering was a hassle as everyone has agreed- wanted 2 and then decided to do ‘deluxe’ and must have clicked in error and now had 4 – all blue. Tried to cx 2 and then tried to change color – no luck. You don’t see the order total until it is all complete and you can’t review. So…I paid $86.70 and now have 4 royal blue deluxe snuggies….and will make lemonade out of lemons !

    I opened one and tried it on – open in the front and wish I had a video of me trying to figure out how to use it. Gave up and stuffed it away and then saw on TV that it was to open in the back and to be used as a cover-up. Tried it again and as long as you are sitting or laying on a couch, it works fine. Do NOT try it on standing up – it trails like a wedding train..only in front ! Having had a good laugh, I am now choosing who to honor this Christmas and deciding if I should include instructions or let them think I have gone over the hill – at age 73, they would be right ! (by the way, am keeping one for me and will enjoy !)

    Comment by Sue on December 16, 2008 at 3:56 pm

  • These comments are hilarious!!!
    I would not wear one since I know how to use a blanket, and when I am outside in cold weather I usually wear some winter clothing.
    However, it could make a great gift for those of us who are blanketly challenged. Its the thought that counts, just hope you give it to someone who is like one of the 6 out of 300 people on this site that liked it.
    Happy Holidays – Ha Ha Ha

    Comment by Shnuggie on December 16, 2008 at 5:15 pm

  • Outdoors you can let the ole lady crawl under
    and go to town….”get’n ass in da grass”.other wise it’s a completely stupid useless over priced blanket with arms from china.

    Comment by smartass on December 16, 2008 at 6:26 pm

  • my wife and i thought these were ridiculous, but our mother’s both raved about the idea. so we decided to order one for each mom…

    a month later we get an email with a link to a picture that says “I know you’ll be excited that I got you a Snuggie for the Holidays! Unfortunately, it won’t be here in time.”

    so we’re supposed to give this picture in place of an actual gift? i can’t imagine that there are so many people out there ordering these damn things that they can’t ship an order in 1 month! WTF

    so for anyone else dealing with this stupidity over this stupid product i’ve posted an image for you to print instead of the “snuggie” picture.

  • “6 out of 300 on this site who liked it” ?? The 6 are the same 1 person (Polly Snuggieholic) who’s a shill for the Chinese co.

    My conclusion after reading and laffing about all your posts is that it’s a rip-off in price, quality and usefulness that will come a month after Xmas.

    Now, back to the airport, monks — and back to the computer porn, Trekkies.

  • Dang. I don’t have enough time in the day to sit around and bitch about infomercials or weird inventions. You must have alot of unhappy time on your hands. No matter how strange or stupid it may seem, whoever invented the Snuggie is raking in millions while you bad mouth their success. Now, THAT is stupid.

    Comment by Winston on December 17, 2008 at 1:21 pm

  • making one is a good idea.very easy..you can buy some lovely flannel material at walmart for next to nothing and you can customize it to suit for your friends or family or if you’re like me and don’t have either… i made one for each of my cats . All 17 (I call them cuddlie bums) came to less then 40 bucks!

    and i made one for my future husband , I know he’s out there some-where!

    Comment by RonBorG on December 17, 2008 at 3:28 pm

  • #51 , so you’re that mindless enough to be lead around by what others think? How sad. Try thinking for yourself.

    And somebody else brought up the book reading. It’s true. When you’re cold, you can’t cover up with a blanket and read at the same time. This Snuggie is perfect. You can cover up with a blanket and hold the book under the blanket, but what a pain in the aayyyce, especially when you have to turn the pages.

    Lastly, the people comparing this to a robe are morons. A robe is too open ended around the sleeves and the bottom to keep warmth in. Plus there is no opening in the front or back of the Snuggie or the other product.

    However the sporting event portion of the video was very funny. I’d never wear one in public like that at my young age. Old people can get away with it though.

    I also love the insults from people who can’t spell properly or use grammar in a correct way.

  • Beware about buying anything from freesnuggie.com they have no customer service and they lie by advertising $7.95 shipping then charge you over $30 but you don’t find this out till after you place the order. On top of that you can’t even get in contact with anyone to cancel the order.

    Also when going through the order process on the website you are pounded with 3 pages od advertisements for various junk and free offers before you can complete your order.

    Buyers please beware!

    Comment by Anthony on December 18, 2008 at 2:06 pm

  • What a great idea for sitting through the Rose Parade. And with my wife snuggled under the snuggie with me, who knows what else is going on under the snuggie….lol…lol

    Comment by gentlelen on December 18, 2008 at 2:20 pm

  • I just can’t figure out the human race.

    I don’t own a snuggie, but I got to this site because I was looking for a snuggie as a gift. The only reason I will not buy one now is because those who bought one did not like how they were dealt with by the company and how cheaply the product was made and expensive for buying and shipping.

    But the idea of the snuggie is to replace putting a blanket over yourself while reading a book, watching TV or relaxing with family. A blanket will fall of your shoulders if you reach for anything, but with a snuggie you merely put your hands through the blanket sleeves for changing channels, drinking hot chocolate or answering the telephone. The design is for a person to cuddle up under a blanket and still be able to move their hands for reaching out without dropping the blanket to their lap.

    It is not intended for you to be walking around the house or even the neighborhood. It’s to keep one person warm without turning up the heat and making the other person suffer through a very warm house. My wife (as most women) are always cold and I tell her to put on a robe or a blanket and not to turn up the heat because I like a lower temperature house. I could live in a comfortable 70-72 degree (or less) room while my wife wants it at 80 degrees while we watch TV or relax in our home.

    So the snuggie would solve that problem. Her under her blanket and me in my short sleeve shirts in the house watching TV.

    It’s a great idea and I will make my own snuggie with two better quality blankets and thank the company for giving me their idea.

  • Anthony, There aught to be a law and someone to enforce it for an outfit like this. I’ve ordered lots of stuff off the net and never have I run into a scam like this… “processing” your order before being able to review it is totally unscrupulous. With an “upgrade” and a puppy blanket(?) my shipping for 4 Snuggies was $31.80 for a total of $91.65! Heck, all I wanted to do was price it all out! Can we start a class action suit?

  • When I first saw the commericial I laughed too. But then my husband got me one, the Slanket actually, and I LOVE it,LOVE it. Btw they are sold out nationally for christmas, I can’t find one anywhere, for my mom. I was just saying whoever came up w/ adding sleeves to a blanket must be laughing themselves all the way to the bank. They are calling it the chia pet of this year as the hot xmas gift.

  • Sparkle,

    I dont have grey’s, I use Just for Men. And you are right, the hood won’t work. I will use my Balaclava instead as it will keep my nose warm too..unless you can think of another way to keep my nose warm? Bring it on. I will wipe the floor with you, just like Vince mops up soda!

  • After wading through phone menus I got another 800 # for a “live” rep. After about a dozen attempts (busy or just a disconnect) I finally got the recording- …high call volume, etc. and “hang up and try later”. I hung on and talked to a person. I was allowed to cancel my order. Whew!

    Screw buying one. My mom’s going to make me one. It’s because she loves me! :D

  • My mother had a stroke four years ago and with the blood thinners she is on, she is always cold. I think this blanket would work well for her because she only has use of one arm and regular blankets are always falling down.

    Comment by Kim on December 21, 2008 at 12:24 pm

  • I think it is a good idea. I live in Northern Michgian. The tempature can get really cold here, -13 yesterday. The snuggie blanket,if it as good as advertised, would be nice to stay warm
    Our heating cost are outrageous. We have to keep our thermostat turned down. We use blankets to keep warm. The sleeves will make it real eaiser to drink hot chocolate or coffee.

    Comment by Russ0263 on December 21, 2008 at 6:17 pm

  • Well i read the jealous folks here killing this product and yes it is very goofy…lol.

    but it’s practical and it SELLS!!!

    i’d buy one for my mom in a second…… why cause their always cold and we all need our hands….

  • Great—-someone ELSE smugly flaunting a sense of arrogant superiority, sneer sneer.

    I’m on a ranch in the mountains of Wyoming, living in a 100-year old house heated by a wood stove and a fireplace, and am ordering 2, one for me and one for an employee.

    Yeah, I can get my hands out from under my blanket or throw but then I have to rearrange it over my shoulders. Trust me, for those of us who really need to wrap up, or choose to because of high energy costs, it DOES make sense to have sleeves, especially nice long ones that cover the hands.

  • Merchandise Direct and Fosdick corp, are the same company. 203-269-0211 is their local number. When you have a complaint, you will find it is difficult, if not impossible to find a human contact. These people are unethical and cleary don’t want their contact info readily available.

    Comment by Cathy from Maine on December 23, 2008 at 2:58 pm

  • I ordered 4 snuggies prior to Thanksgiving for Christmas gifts. Imagine my surpise the 2nd week of December being told that my oder had been backordered. They will not be delivered until January. They don’t have the product, but they steadily advertizing them on tv. Almost seems like false advertizing.

    Comment by Charles Cooper on December 23, 2008 at 3:06 pm

  • I say if you can afford it and want to be comfortable, go for it. Just remember, read the fine print and “Buyer Beware” for everything now-a-days, especially when it comes to S&H on some of these TV products, not to mention how you are “automatically” signed up sometimes for things you didn’t join and only seem to find out months later. Also. a side note…can anyone honestly say they have never committed a fashion faux-pas for the sake of comfort?

    Comment by Michele on December 23, 2008 at 4:14 pm

  • I will wait until they have them at Walgreens, then I won’t have to pay th S&H. Every gadget advertised on TV usually ends up at Walgreens anyway!! The booklights are already at Walgreens and they are about $2.00.

    Comment by Terri on December 23, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    the book lights are available at Dollar Tree for a buck.

  • Whether you call it a “Snuggie” a “Slanket“, “Snuglet” or just that big fleece blanket with sleeves. But if you’d rather make your own instead of shelling out $50, there’s a great free pattern to make your own Snuglet! Welmoed’s Sewing Room has created a PDF how-to (http://www.sissonfamily.com/Sewingroom/images/2006projects/thesnuglet.pdf)for sewing your own fleece blanket from 3 yards of polar fleece. I’ve seen fleece on sale for as low as $5, so it’s a lot more economical to sew your own when you can find the fabric on sale.

  • There is absolutely no way in Hell that a product priced this cheaply will perform the way they claim that it will. No way! Don’t waste your money.

    Comment by Steve K. on December 24, 2008 at 2:46 pm

  • I say nothing else, than to criticize the stupidity of the commercial. From my blog:

    Snuggies
    A classic example of a middle aged woman writing the copy for this product, packed with some of the most annoying, waspy phraseology anyone could devise. It’s basically a blanket with sleeves, and somewhat a cross between a blanket, robe, and sweater. According to their rhetoric, blankets are just oh so cumbersome, and restrict your arms from doing anything. What? It’s a blanket, not a straitjacket. Move hand out from under blanket, grab remote, use remote, shut the hell up. The irritating soccer mom doing the voice over intimates that “bwankets be so bulky wulky, and can weed to cold footsie wootsies”. Makes me sick. Then this incredibly effiminate product (and promotion) is purely targeted at old women, yet they show men wearing it while “grabbing a snack” (oof) and attending sports events. Any male wearing this hideous thing would be beaten to a pulp before halftime.

    Comment by Jackie on December 26, 2008 at 1:39 am

  • Snuggie TV order:
    I ordered mine more than a month before Christmas. I have not recieved it and ALL customer service options when you call are automated; no live service, no way to cancel; and the number they do give for a \”live customer service rep\” disconnnects you almost as soon as you connect with them. Finally they charged me 31.80 for a 39.90 order more than double what the TV ad says, the web site says and what I was told at the time of ordering!!! Beware!

    Comment by julie on December 26, 2008 at 6:52 pm

  • I bought 77 of those awesome snuggies for all of my children at my daycare. Every Thursday, we have a Snuggie Circle where all the kids take turn telling how the snuggie has impacted their lives and made them a better person. We have already taken three trips to the Snuggie Museum last week and the kids seem to enjoy it more and more each time we go. Every Friday, We buy a new Snuggie and add it to our Snuggie bank, we have 63 in there. The Company is also donating Captain Crunch cereal for the kids to our daycare for all of our purchases. The Snuggies changed my life and has made my children, people across America, people in Guam and the Eastern most parts of Singapore, and many more people feel better about themselves.

    Thank You Snuggies!

    Let the Snug be with you!

    ***Peace, Love and Snuggie**

    Comment by Debbie on December 27, 2008 at 12:50 pm

  • the Snuggie Museum? And how old are the children at your day care? I mean, do they really articulate all kinds of new ideas for why they appreciate the snuggie? Or…were you just being sarcastic?

    Comment by TL on December 28, 2008 at 8:29 pm

  • I recommend the writer of the this blog for the Stupid Writers hall of fame. I have tried useing a normal blanket on cool evenings and the problem is they end up around your waist instead of staying on the shoulders. A blanket does in deed need arms to be effective for staying warm watching TV or at football games. All of the local Walgreens stores immediately sold out of their Snuggies and they were not returned.

    Comment by zackariah on December 29, 2008 at 8:55 pm

  • I orderded a Snuggie at the beginning of December for a “gag” christmas present for my wife who is always cold. It is now almost January and I still haven’t received it. The lady on the phone just now was very rude and offered nothing when I asked “Why did I pay $16 shipping for something that won’t be here until the middle of January.”

    I could have driven back and forth to the home of Snuggie in Connecticut 100 times quicker then I am waiting in the mail for it. It’s not fine china they are shipping, it’s a blanket… with sleeves.

    As Snuggylvr3 said, just put on your robe backwards.

    Comment by Nathan on December 30, 2008 at 8:22 am

  • I dont know what you guys are talking about. Sure the snuggie might make you look like a wizard or a monk or a public masturbater, but have you ever tried having sex in one? The open back makes dogie style not only convenient but incredibly warm and cozy. My lady always complained about getting cold, and we tried blankets and such but she felt bundled and confined and her hands weren’t free which became an inconvienience. But since we purchesed the snuggie a few months ago we have been doing much more getting down and much less getting cold. It also makes covert bj’s at sporting events resturants, and family gatherings a breeze (one size does fit all). Thank you snuggy

    Comment by snuggiestyle on December 30, 2008 at 12:26 pm

  • My girlfriend and I saw this commercial on TV last night and looked at each other and instantly started laughing. The name “snuggie” alone is ridiculous. What a stupid product with an even stupider name. Why wouldn’t I just go get my robe and wear it backwards instead of wasting my money on one of those things!

  • How sick are you #242

    Comment by Angeleyes on December 31, 2008 at 2:13 pm

  • I get cold while playing video games. Some of my controllers are wireless, but not all of them, and sometimes I play games at my desk using a PC. I got a Slanket and it works really well for not making me readjust the blanket I’m trying to keep warm with while playing, since my hands are free.

    This is a niche product that serves a portion of the populace very well. I think the same can be said about most infomercial products.

    Comment by Jex on December 31, 2008 at 8:43 pm

  • I don’t know, People! There a lot of us out there who have always longed to look like monks! And now we have an official infomercial of our own that validates those desires! If you weigh over 300lbs or so, this is the ideal go-everywhere, do-everything, every day outfit! No more binding belts, elastic bands, briefs, etc.! Now you can go around in the “all-together” underneath your Snuggie! And who will know? Like Kosmo Kramer in the famous Seinfeld episode, you can be “out-there” at all times! Just imagine; that guy sitting next to you on public transportation or just down the isle in the movie theater could be au naturale under that luxurious Snuggie! What a concept! I can’t wait until mine arrives! Then all my restrictive, uncomfortable clothing is off to the local GoodWill store! Yippee!

    Comment by lol on January 2, 2009 at 2:04 pm

  • For those of you who don’t get it: First of all I don’t own a robe, esp. not a fleece robe. Second of all, even if I did own a robe, it wouldn’t be a long as a blanket, thus my feet and hands would still be cold.

    Reading these reviews have truely been entertaining. Some of your should be comedians! Despite the cynicism, I still plan to get a “blanket with sleeves”. I like to snuggle with a blanket to watch tv and I hate how I get cold everytime I need to use my hands to turn the channel. The Slanket looks like it has better material so I’ll probably go with that one.

    Comment by Zina on January 2, 2009 at 2:38 pm

  • I couldn’t find my hands to go to the bathroom, and come to think of it, I couldn’t find my hoo-ha either so I peed all over myself and the snuggie. Good news though, I didn’t need toilet paper ’cause there’s enough snuggie to go around. The informercial doesn’t mention that it’s super absorbant too.

    Comment by John on January 2, 2009 at 10:11 pm

  • (puts bathrobe on backwards)
    NOW WHAT DO YOU CALL THAT. A FUGGIE? A FAKE SNUGGIE?
    And what happens if your hands get cold? o.0
    And I bet it’s not flame resistant.

    Comment by EmilyDoesn'tLikeSnuggies on January 2, 2009 at 10:44 pm

  • Has anyone seen the other commercial on a different channel for Snuggies @ $29.99? I bought the buy 1 get 1 free in sage green and I did it over the phone with an automated voice. I was told 4-6 weeks for delivery.
    Willow

    Comment by Willow on January 3, 2009 at 3:19 pm

  • I can only conclude that the product to value ration is quite low, given the deceitful web ordering process (no confirmation page and your order is complete the moment you enter your credit card information). They tell you can select a second color as soon as you select your first, but the “first” includes your free second snuggie and when you enter the second color later, you’ve instantly ordered two more and since they already have your credit card number, it’s charged already. A month the phones aren’t answered, not confirmation email. A shipment notification email might come a month later, but the fedex number isn’t in their system after more than four days. A reply to the shipment notice email (customerservice @ allstar.com) results in bounced email, indicating that the email address is faked. This might be a good product, but ONLY if you can find it in person at one of those as seen on TV stores and can pick it up in person and pay cash. From all the comments – it might be okay to have, but definitely hazardous to your financial health to order online.

  • I am waiting patiently for my snuggie that The Boyfriend ordered for me. We have a tracking number, and real live snuggies are on their way. These snuggies are going to be PERFECT for warm sexy times, gaming on the couch, and just plain looking like dorks when we are gathered at the dining room table all clad in our snuggies. What can I say, we are nerds. We don’t care if we look like cult members. :) We belong to the Wannabewarm Cult of Housetoocoldology. We will be WARM cult members! :P

    Comment by MoJo on January 4, 2009 at 5:08 am

  • just some advice form a frequent internet shopper:

    ALWAYS use a credit card; NEVER a debit card (just like cash) or a check

    if you think you have been cheated by a company after using a credit card, call your cc company IMMEDIATELY when you see the charge on your bill and dispute the charge. you may have to wait until the order is complete, but dispute it right away so that you don’t have to pay the charge while you are trying to clear up the problem.

    DO NOT settle for a “we can’t help you” answer from cc company – ask for a supervisor. some call center employees don’t know all the laws and policies. right down names of people you talk to, what they say, and follow up.

    federal law says that once a company has your money (charge is on your cc bill), that it MUST deliver the product within 30 days, or give you an opportunity to cancel.

    save ALL info – packing, boxes, invoices, emails, etc. you will need them for the AG complaint, and possibly to dispute the credit card charge.

    look up the website for your state’s (delivery address) Attorney General and the state where the company address is (and the state from where the product is shipped, if different). the websites usually have links to forms for consumer complaints. file one! a complaint from the AG often gets prompt results.

    if you return merchandise through the mail, make sure to use a service that gives you a tracking number, such as post office Delivery Confirmation, so that you can prove that you sent it back, and to where.

    don’t get cheated! good luck.

  • How can it be that not a single poster here has mentioned one of the creepiest and most clueless aspects of the TV ad?? It’s 2009, and this commercial is LILY WHITE! Not a single person of any color other than white white white! Whoever markets this product (“ASM”?) is incredibly tone-deaf to the demographic reality of life in the USA in 2009, you know? I wanna call them up and get a live person and say, “Uh…are non-white people allowed to buy this ridiculous product?”!

  • SOLD! I am gonna order that ingenious Snuggie! Mostly, just because I love the way they totally rip-off the Snuggle Fabric Softener Font, and maybe even for the big upcoming Nostradamus apocalyptic event on 12-21-2012. Until then, I’ll just wear it everywhere I go in AND outdoors… especially when I go to apply for a social security crazy check. They HAVE to grant me a those benefits, cause’ I’m a Star Trek character alien while cloaked inside. Hmm… wonder if they can put a Federation patch right on the front instead of giving me that free book light? Anyway, I can stay warm and cozy while juggling sausages & Pandas in the park during any blizzard, and still save 16.275% on my home heating bills. Wow! This things’ gonna pay for itself in no time! Also, in the summer I’ll just scamper about, flappin’ in the wind, totally freeball underneath my Snuggie while my ass hangs outta the back, singing a summer medley all its own! Sweet! Oh, wait… I just haaaave to take advantage of the BOGO thingy they offer too… let’s see… I’ll give the other one to my Mom… no…, wait… she’d “take me OUT of this world,” after all, she did “bring me INTO it…” Huh? Wha…? What’s going on…? What a bizarre dream… or was it a calling??? I wonder what’s the next item up for bids on The Price Is Right? >

  • i saw this commercial and thought it was a great idea. i plan to buy one. i’m usually cold and i like to curl up with a blanket when i watch tv. however, when the commercial comes and i have to fast forward, i have to take my hand out from under the blanket. now i don’t have to. i wouldn’t wear this in public, but i wouldn’t wear my blanket it public. so there is no comparison.

  • I think the snuggie is THE greatest product ever made. I bought one and now i am never cold. i wear to school on those on those frigid mornings. Some of the other seinors at high school are jealous and are now buying their own. The snuggie made me very popular . All the girls now love to “snuggie” with me. Im SNUGGIELICIOUS
    My favorite color out of my five snuggies is the S*** brown color

    PS. NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i think the snuggie is the most retarded product ever shown on TV why not just wear a jacket you retards.

    PPS. I DO like the S*** brown color

    Comment by mc nipples on January 6, 2009 at 9:19 am

  • Ya know, this reminds me strongly of something that was popular in the ’70s… don’t remember the name (senility rulez!) but it was a quilt that snapped or zipped to cover like the snuggie. Except it didn’t look nearly as…. cultish. And it was made of better material too. And it wasn’t a stupid “As Seen on TV” ripoff product. They eventually died off, as will those horrific items of stupidity.

    Ahhh, the good ol days where all we had to worry about in the way of “As Seen on TV” crap were the Popeil products… (Veg-o-matic anyone?)

    Comment by Terry on January 8, 2009 at 2:09 pm

  • As a 29 year old mother of 3 who has to sit at outdoor sporting events in 30 degree weather, I think this is a great idea. Do you know how many people sit there with blankets on them at these outdoor events wishing their blankets covered more because we sit there for hours freezing? Plenty. There should be no shame (unless you are a stupid teenager) in keeping warm. My husband is always hot and makes us keep the house very chilly. I wear long pants, socks, slippers, t-shirt and a sweatshirt all year long in my house and I still cover up with a blanket when I sit down. I would appreciate this as a gift because when I read a book or get on my laptop and my arms are out from under the blanket it still makes me cold. I would love to still have warm arms and freedom to move them. Anyone who thinks this idea is stupid is really just jealous they were too stupid to come up with it.

    Comment by MomO3 on January 8, 2009 at 2:49 pm

  • Watch the commercial again. When the family is at the sporting event, they all begin to cheer, and the Mom turns to face her family…you can see the snuggie flapping behind her, and it’s not even covering her back at ALL! So while she’s out in the stands, and it’s cold enough that she has to wrap up in a Snuggie, her neck and back are completely exposed to the cold! How is this keeping her warm?? Her poor child sitting next to her can’t even FIND her little hands in that big wad of fabric her parents put on her. It’s going to be one big mess when she asks her parents for a hotdog or some nachos while watching the game.

    Why isn’t anyone questioning how your BACK stays warm in this? Wouldn’t it make more sense to wear a coat that zips up in the front, and then just bring a small lap blanket to cover your legs at a sporting event if you needed to?

    If you’re so scared of being “trapped” in a blanket to stay warm, go put on your coat! Save money, use what you have.

    Comment by Taylorblue on January 10, 2009 at 8:00 am

  • One of my friends tried to order one of these. The site says its 20 bucks, right? Well, it doesn’t tell you shipping costs until you have entered your purchase information and hit ‘purchase.’ Then, the shipping costs are revealed to you. The total cost with shipping is nearly 40 bucks!

    Comment by Andrea S on January 14, 2009 at 6:14 pm

  • I tried ordering this stupid product online for a friend, and realized that they were not only charging double for the shipping, but I could not get a hold of a live person to ask them a question.

    So I gave up on it

    Another stupid over ratted gimmick

    Comment by gw on January 15, 2009 at 2:16 pm

  • What gives!? They’ve got my money, it has been 6 weeks and I don’t have my products. I can’t get a hold to a “real” person to track my order. They give a number to reach a “real” person, however, no one ever answers – you get a prompt to call back within the week!?

    Comment by Paul G on January 16, 2009 at 3:29 pm

  • I can’t stand how ppl complain of the charges. I thought the ordering process was fairly clear.

    There are two kinds of people in this world:
    1. Those who can add, read and take the time to do so before plugging in a cc number

    2. Those who can’t take responsibility for their idiotic puchases and complain to the AG

    Comment by m on January 16, 2009 at 3:31 pm

  • I love my Snuggie!!!

    Now, i wouldn’t pay the extra shipping. But I found one at our Grocery store today for $15. It’s already great to work on the computer and stay warm. The quality is fine–it’s fleece. And soft.

    Comment by Sarah on January 16, 2009 at 9:06 pm

  • walgreens had them for $15, no shipping required. my husband was going to buy this for me as a gag gift for christmas and i am making a mock order that i bought one for my brother for his b-day, wish me luck

    Comment by me on January 18, 2009 at 2:49 pm

  • I have gotten a few great laughs at all of the comments with regard to the Snuggie! Thanks for that, I needed it. I do not have a Snuggie but I DO have a Slanket. Just in case you care; the Slanket came out before the Snuggie. I did some research. I actually received mine as a gift a while back.The one I have is the moss green color – not very attractive at all…kinda makes me feel like the Jolly Green Giant or maybe Shrek! The Slanket is great though! It is made of a thicker fleece than the Snuggie(note that it also costs more) It DOES fit a 3X size person (I would know cause I am one and it is perfectly fine for me – I CAN actually wrap it around me. I use it at the computer as well as in the recliner and I do enjoy it. I don’t think it would use it in public though unless I was trying to impersonate one of the aforementioned characters. I would also note one other thing about the Snuggie…or more importantly the magical booklight that comes with it for “free” (just pay rediculous shipping and handling)…I actually purchased the exact same booklights at the DOLLAR STORE…so, I would recommend that you skip the gimmicks and get the Slanket.

    Comment by James on January 19, 2009 at 3:09 pm

  • To the Snug Master Flex (comment 231), you are hilarious! I love that you have Snuggie Circle to talk about the impact of these blanket sleepers on your 77 kids lives. And visit to the Snuggie Museum…you failed to mention if you wear your Snuggies when you go. I’m guessing that maybe you you had them all embroidered with your daycare logo to make spotting them at the crowded Snuggie Museum easier to do.

    I was thinking, no where does it say or show how the bottoms are finished off. Does anyone know? Are their cuffs? If so, when you take your kids to the museum, you could fill their Snuggies with the Captain Crunch cereal and then the kids could have a snack for anytime at the museum that they feel a lil’ rumblin’ in their tummy-tum-tums.

    Snuggies are revolutionizing the world. Perhaps tomorrow when Barack Obama takes his oath of office on the Capitol steps, he’ll be wearing his Snuggie. And for all those millions of people on the National Mall who have to pee, let’s hope they are wearing their Huggies under their Snuggies!!!!

    Comment by Not gonna go derriere on January 24, 2009 at 1:22 am

  • Let the naysayers run along and be cold! I bought 3 of these at my local Walgreens. My family loves them. I am using one right this moment. It makes curling up on the couch with a laptop much more comfortable and less bulky than a bathrobe & a blanket. They’re fuzzy and snuggly. My husband (big burly football man) has no problem wearing his. In fact – he was the one who asked for one for his birthday.

    So we all look like extras in a monestary movie. Who cares. $35 for all 3 (Walgreens sells them for $14.99) is a nice cozy way to keep our heating bills down. We all curl up with our snuggies and laugh at those who would rather be stylish yet shiver.

    Comment by Kraisins on January 24, 2009 at 6:13 am

  • Wow!!!! I WISH someone had thought of something like this before: a piece of cloth that keeps you warm, lets you stick your arms out, doesn’t overly impede movement! Hey, if they added a zipper or snaps, I think that I’d call it a “coat” or “jacket!”

    Comment by Marty on January 24, 2009 at 6:55 am

  • Just received my snuggie that my dad ordered for me. It took 5 weeks to receive the order. He upgraded and it is very warm and comfortable. I did’nt know he had bought one for me and my kids so I went to snuggie site to price 4 snuggies and ended up placing order as there is no order review page;it just places the order. I am trying to cancel the order.Will be very upset if I can’t cancel this order.Wish I had found this site first.

    Comment by deedeebee6 on January 24, 2009 at 8:55 pm

  • I thought they were kind of funny. Then I ended up getting one as a gift…and to be honest – I really like it. Yeah – it is similar to a robe – but robes don’t cover my feet. AND I could use a blanket – but I like that I don’t have to uncover my hands when I need to do something. No, it isn’t super thick – but if it was any thicker it wouldn’t be as easy to move your arms. I think you should try something before you complain about it.

  • Good grief. These things are selling like crazy because people want to be comforted. What could be more comforting than wearing a red blanket?

    The company that produces them had no way of knowing they would be such a success — or that people would want to order them online (infomercial business has always been phone-based)– so service is bad and they can’t keep up with the demand.

    Comment by constance on January 27, 2009 at 4:25 pm

  • Thought about getting these as a gag Christmas gift. By the time I got to the “review your order” point in the ordering process and saw the S & H charges it was too late. The order was processed and within minutes I received an order confirmation in my email. I tried to write to cancel the order but the email was bounced back.

    This was beginning of December. The order arrived over a month later, and after Christmas, so I refused shipment. The UPS website indicates customer refused shipment as well. The charge has recently come through on my cr card statement to which I am going to dispute with the credit card company.

    Since there are over 300 posts on this forum, can anyone provide a working phone number and/or email address for this company?

    Comment by Pissed Off on January 28, 2009 at 10:27 pm

  • If I ever see somebody wearing the snuggie, I’m going to throw water balloons and/or eggs at them. And hope they cry and never wear that outside again. Wear a coat like a grown up.

    The snuggie has given America a chance for hope. Somehow people think its Obama… but I think they just saw him with a snuggie on and got confused.

    This pretty much sums it up

  • It isn’t warm enough for me, too thin, but it was a gift. After receiving and trying it out glad I didn’t pay for it. You have to understand I am a person who really doesn’t like the cold and can feel cold easily. My blankets work better although they have no arm holes.

Idiots who buy this crap are the reason this site exists. If it was not for those morons who are so easily are parted from their money companies like this would be relegated to late night infomercials.

    Comment by Jeezus on January 31, 2009 at 11:01 am

  • That’s right MOM! (no.308).Don’t forget the back is exposed too,so how in the hell does that provide total warmth?! I’d rather wear a regular coat with thermals underneath.It’s a lot cheaper ,heck even cheaper than the “bait & switch” shipping cost for these danggone yellalivered monstrosities (seriously) on the website.

    Comment by Mike Sailor on January 31, 2009 at 12:16 pm

  • You can buy the snuggie at the target that i go to too. I just got one! i’m wearing it right now! its good but when it says “You can even walk!” i tryed and there is no back to it so i am still a little cold on my back though.

    Comment by Hikooly1 on January 31, 2009 at 4:35 pm

  • BUYER BEWARE!!! THIS IS A SCAM. PUT ON A NICE BIG FLUFFY ROBE AND FORGET THIS. THEY WILL CHARGE YOU MORE THAN THIS CHEAP PIECE OF CRAP IS WORTH AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT WELL…..TOO BAD THEY WILL NOT REIMBURSE THE SHIPPING COSTS WHICH IN MY CASE WAS OVER $50.00. THAT WAS THE AMOUNT I PAID FOR A REFRIGERATOR TO BE SHIPPED.

    DON’T BUY THIS!!! THEY WILL GET YOU…. BEWARE!!!

    Comment by Peggy on January 31, 2009 at 8:48 pm

  • Amen to #308.

    If you’re cold, put on another layer of clothing. I have Reynaud’s Phenomenon and manage sub-zero Minnesota winters by layering clothing, not by wasting my money on some product that’s just an oversized robe turned backwards.

    Comment by Teresa on February 2, 2009 at 5:13 pm

  • Take it from someone who got burned! They give you an option to “upgrade” to a thicker one with pockets. Well, they sent me 4 instead of 2, and you cannot reach any live person on the customer service line. They charged me nearly $100.00. Turns out they sell them at STAPLES. I could have checked one out first. COMPLETE RIPOFF, I AM A COMPLETE F*CKING FOOL.

    Comment by SNUGGIE "SUCKER" on February 3, 2009 at 5:15 pm

  • This idea is f’n stupid, its a backwards housecoat. The sad thing is, they are selling like crazy and the creators are becoming millionaires. They cant even keep up with demand. What a sad sad world we live in when people are actually dumb enough to buy something like this. I think I have given up my hope in humanity.

    Comment by Will on February 4, 2009 at 12:24 pm

  • What a rip off! I ordered mine before I read other reports. I was indeed charged for 4 of them all burgundy. I only wanted one but decided to get the “free” one as well since there seemed no way around it. At the time I placed the order, they weren’t yet in stores.

    The ordering process tricks you and traps you and there! You’ve been charged for 4! I clicked the little “no” button as opposed to the giant “yes” button that I wanted an additional 2 more. *sigh*

    Took over a month to arrive.

    They are a joke! Far too long. Sleeves too long and yes, back is fully exposed. I am sitting in a computer chair. My back was freezing and I couldn’t type. Sleeves kept getting in the way. And now my clothes are covered with red fuzz!

    Comment by Julie B on February 4, 2009 at 2:47 pm

  • I’ll add my Snuggie rip off story. I ordered mine December 9, 2008, knowing about the long shipping time. On January 17, I received a confirmation that it had shipped on the 16th with a UPS tracking number. I checked the tracking number immediately, and it showed only that billing information had been received, which is not unusual so I didn’t think anything about it. About a week later, no Snuggie, same thing on the tracking. I wasn’t in a hurry for it, it was for an upcoming gift, so I didn’t worry about it. Finally, on February 4th, when I hadn’t received it and it still showed only that billing information had been received, I called. First number was all automated, gave me the tracking number, and referred me to another number. I called that number, spoke to a Renton, who would only tell me that it shows to have shipped on January 15th (the date he gave was different that the confirmation email). I explained to him that it showed no movement, I hadn’t received it, and that it seems to have not shipped, he just repeated that it shows to have been shipped on January 15th. I asked who could check on it to confirm that, he said no one could. I asked to speak to a supervisor, he said I couldn’t, they were ‘in a meeting or helping other associates’. I asked which it was, in a meeting or helping someone else, he didn’t know. I asked to hold, he said I couldn’t. He offered to redo the order or cancel the order. I asked how soon it could ship, he said two weeks, I said I wanted to cancel. However, they would only refund the $19.95 product cost, NOT the $15.90 shipping, EVEN THOUGH IT NEVER SHIPPED, saying they don’t refund shipping and handling costs. Still, he refused to let me speak to a supervisor, saying the supervisor would tell me the same. Finally, he said that if I didn’t receive it within 24 hours, I could call back and get a full refund, though he couldn’t/wouldn’t tell me who authorized that so I could ask for them when calling back, so I suspect this was his way of getting me off the phone so I could be someone else’s problem tomorrow. In the end I just told him I was going to take it up with my credit card company and find anywhere and everywhere I could to let people know if my experience with them. I would have been perfectly happy to just find out what the hold up was and receive the item in a week, or just get a full refund, but that didn’t happen.

    Comment by Jim on February 4, 2009 at 3:06 pm

  • Like an AZZHOLE i ordered one of these things My son is a Paralized and is always cold so I figure hey wow thats great it can be put on him fairly easy and has arms so he can wear it and still be able to use his electric wheel chair. the order process was awfull kept me on the phone for 25 minutes trying to sell me crap i didn’t want or to upgrade which i didn’t do thank god. told me it would take 2-6 weeks ok fine 6th week I got an Email saying it was shipped by ups on 31st of Jan. (Lie Lie Lie ) it was NOT shipped until the 3rd of Feb Sent Ground by ups and will take another 10 to 12 days for delivery. DON”T DO BUSINESS WITH THEM PLEASE, Do yourself a favor go to walmart or target buy a fleese blancet it will be so much CHEEPER and a whole lot less of a headache

    Comment by Jack on February 5, 2009 at 8:58 am

  • My husband got “suckered” into buying this. They are VERY thin and scratchy. I am 5 ft and it bunches at the neck and of course the sleeves and the length are WAY too long. I enjoyed reading the funny comments. But I agree, Snuggies are a total waste of money. I prefer my ultra fleece throw.

    Comment by SASSY on February 5, 2009 at 8:39 pm

  • I happened to notice Melissa’s post on Sept. 17 and totally agree. I don’t think I have ever seen any “munks” at a football game much less any in a Snuggie.
    I mean like probably about a hundred or so “munks” could share one Snuggie along with the fifty or so pounds of junk food they would collect under the stands and this leads me to the question of just who would order a Snuggie for the “munks” anyway ?

    Comment by Arthur on February 6, 2009 at 11:09 am

  • LOL.. this post just made my day. There are some hilarious comments on this site, it always amazes me how people are quick to call other people idiots simply because they don’t see the relevance. Or to place blame because THEY can’t/don’t/won’t read. I just ordered my Snuggie, I think it’s cute and I have several blankets as I rarely turn my heat on. It’s seems great for when I’m snuggled up on the couch and want to eat while I watch TV. When you order ONE, it tells you plainly just below the confirm button that you are getting one free and will pay an additional 7.50 for shipping. If you try to get your “free” one by selecting a quantity of 2 rather than 1, that’s your own fault. The following pages offering upgrades and other nonsense clearly have a “no thanks” button right next to the accept button. Reading is fundamental.

  • WOW Holy fn shit. I ordered this product a month ago and received it last week. OMG I wore it out to the bar after my Harry Potter convention and the bitches were all up on it…. No joke you wouldnt believe how much pussy I pull I wearing the snuggie. I saw someone else say that this was the greatest invention and that fire was good but it didnt have sleeves, and that is totally true. I will never leave home without a snuggie again. And yes I did order three of each color. Did I mention that this product helped cure my herpes, thank you snuggie.

    Comment by Jarred on February 7, 2009 at 6:31 pm

  • Why not just wear a blanket sleeper (fleece footed pajamas)? They make them in all sizes for kids and adults. I have a few pairs. They cover you head to toe- you have complete freedom of movement. They are really warm, and you can do anything while wearing them. Doesn’t make sense to wrap a kid in a Snuggie (dumb name), when they make a completely wearable blanket sleeper for them. Don’t you remember wearing them as a kid?

  • Jarred (#322) you are hilarious.
    My daughter wanted to get the snuggie for her
    dad as a joke gift because the commercial irks
    him. I did the research on the net and you folks
    set me straight. No gag gift is worth the shipping and handling rip-off. However, I’ve
    been thoroughly entertained for the last 20 minutes reading these comments.

    Comment by Peggy on February 10, 2009 at 10:43 pm

  • The snuggie itself isn’t a bad idea.
    The ad is what ruins it. The Hawaii chair actually was stupid but the snuggie would work. The claim it’s good for sporting events .. not so much.

    Comment by Dansla on February 11, 2009 at 4:56 am

  • I purchased one (two because you cant buy one) of these ridiculous things as a gag gift for my girlfriend. when I opened it, it had 2 holes in though there were no holes in the bag it came in. Its a very thin material and I dont know how it will keep anyone warm. I called customer service and it is totally automated. If you want to return it, you have to eat the cost of shipping again or they offer you a….wait for it…$10 merchandise credit if you “stay loyal to your snuggie.” I hope nobody buys this thing as anything more than a gag or you will be pissed. lol

The damn thing doesn’t even stay on, not to mention you’d end up tripping on it. Don’t get me started on the booklight. It didn’t even fully open on its own. I had to open it and re-bend the metal connectors so they would actually touch the battery. Only thing about this product that they got right is you CAN lay down and use your hands while keeping warm. But I never had trouble using a blanket. Sorry, we can’t all be morons.

  • “The snuggie is great! When I’m cold, the snuggie keeps everything but my feet, hands, ears, legs, and arms warm. AND GUESS WHAT? The snuggie is so great that it even keeps my baby warm (even though she’s not even under this dumb blanket with holes)”

  • I just purchased the snuggie because my computer is in my basement and i’m always freezing down here. It keeps me warm, but what’s annoying about it is that the whole back is open. It falls off alot and doesn’t even keep my back warm! It kinda sucks

  • It’s an oversized bathrobe you put on backwards that makes you look like an idiot.

  • Thi product is innovative and probably makes em’ money , a hillarious infomercial, though. It totally looks like a start wars cloak.

  • Accidently ordered and received four hideous green Snuggies. Ahem. I hate them. Trust me, get a good blanket.

    Comment by Renee on February 28, 2009 at 12:55 pm

  • no one taught that lady how to use a blanket, apparently. and why is it you see the exact same actors in nearly every infomercial? the older man in the burgundy snuggie has been in just about every infomercial I’ve ever watched.

    and it’s 2009, who plays gamecube anymore?

  • These things are 100 percent polyester. It clings to you and creates tons of static electricity!!! It really is a retarded product – and I’m a sucker for buying one. (the little booklight they send with it is pretty cool though!)

    Comment by Duane on March 1, 2009 at 8:32 am

  • Do they make a two person snuggie? I would consider buying one then.

    Comment by Heywood Jablome on March 3, 2009 at 2:16 pm

  • they are pretty static-y, but i love my snuggie! it’s warm and comfortable and hilarious.

    Comment by Melanie on March 5, 2009 at 3:12 pm

  • Well for those people who are making fun of the “snuggie”, I just saw this couple on the Oprah show today who came up with this “stupid” and “ridiculous” concept. To date they have made an estimate $60 million off this “retarded” piece of “pure crap”! Try and laugh that hard on the way to your bank!

    Comment by Greg on March 6, 2009 at 7:33 pm

  • Costco online offers the Snuggie package (2 Snuggies + 2 book lights) for $14.99, shipping and handling included. A much better deal …

    Comment by Marilyn on March 8, 2009 at 12:23 am

  • Just because a product is a little different, you all want to put it down. I bought one for $15 at a local store. It is perfect for curling up on the couch with reading a book on a cold evening I have a robe but it doesn’t cover me completely like my snuggie does. I do agree buying it from the company where u have to pay twice the shipping and handling is a rip-off though.

  • bottom line…..snuggie=stupid

  • A morning radio show in Pittsburgh, PA did the following music video about the snuggie set to “I’m on a boat”:

  • We laughed together at the commercials. They are truly lame. Then my husband gave Snuggie’s to my daugther at college and me for Christmas. They get used all the time. I have a great paying work from home computer job and I use my snuggie all the time. If your hands get hold just pull them up in the sleeves.

    Comment by jean on March 26, 2009 at 7:39 am

  • My girlfriend work at Bed Bath and Beyond and they sell the Snuggie for 14.99. They have blue… Blue, Blue… oh yeah and Blue. Its too bad they don’t have nice universal remotes.

  • In Russia, Snuggie wears YOU.

    Comment by acidbrat on April 7, 2009 at 1:38 pm

  • Well I too laughed at the commercial…..then lo and behold my DH ordered me one!!!
    Our only heating is an open fire for the entire house – it’s not enough. We have blankets on every sofa in the winter. Yes I get very cold as the blanket doesn’t keep me fully covered, and does slip off as I type.
    I can’t quite believe I’m sitting here snug and warm, typing wearing a snuggie!!!! Sad but true! I have been converted! This could be my warmest winter yet. (and yes it’s a lot warmer than my bath robe – and longer too)
    oh by the way….the free reading light worked well, and it was about $15 for p&p (for the both)

  • The Snuggie can’t be stopped; you can only hope to contain it. Obey.

    Comment by Snuggie Cult on July 15, 2009 at 9:13 pm

  • This is the funniest review I’ve ever read, complete with a phone number to a chocolate factory (not Willy Wonka :(( ) However, it did not help me contact a live person at snuggies.

    Comment by Jade Lupin on September 15, 2009 at 10:26 am

  • The snuggie is GREAT. The original “slanket” is twice the price. Have ordered 2 in leopard (will look great draped across the couch) and 4 in pretty pink for – mom (92), 2 granddaughters, (11 and 10)and the new daughter-in-law….all of them (with shipping) cost $77 which is ONLY $12.83 (great Christmas presents) – a great deal and everyone receiving one, here in cold, drafty Michigan, will LOVE IT !!

    Comment by Kathy Putman on September 16, 2009 at 2:54 pm

  • I guess there is some jealous people in here? I believe as of one year ago this month, they have sold over 4 million, so as dumb as you may think the idea is, some people got very rich off it!

    Comment by Zach W. on September 24, 2009 at 10:59 pm

  • I was almost conned into buying one when I came across this post. When I read about how they trick you into buying two so they can ding you on the shipping I realized how greedy this world is. You would think that having sold 60 billion of these things they wouldn’t feel the need to trick you…but the world is going to hell in a hand basket.

    I ended up buying a few snuggies from another site that sells them with print. They have a few that are pretty funny like “Snug Life” and “What happens in this snuggie, stays in this snuggie.” Personally I think they should have a customized snuggie that reads, “I’m not wearing anything under my snuggie.” In case anyone is interested, I’m pretty sure the site was CustomSnuggie. com.

  • i think the snuggie is a GREAT idea!!its perfect if u wanna trip and fall!!i mean, seriosly! its like a giant gown!

    Comment by Billy on October 20, 2009 at 11:15 am

  • I’m so embarrassed to be part of the human race with people inventing products like this. As far as millions being sold? That only means there’s millions of morons out there. If there’s intelligent life out there, please beam me up!!!

    Comment by J on October 26, 2009 at 2:37 pm

  • LOL…there’s actually people dumb enough out there to buy these!!

  • But my back is still cold.

    Comment by ejchi on November 6, 2009 at 7:37 am

  • Ordered the snuggies – two of them + plus was told I would get two more & each would have its own bed light -. NEVER HAPPENED! TOOK MY MONEY AND ONLY SENT ME THE TWO! What happened to the others! SO MUCH FOR THE “EXTRAS”. SORRY BUNCH OF THIEVES! Not only only that I have to pay for the return to cancel my order. No one yet has answered the phone at their help site – just a telephone tag on the computer’s merry-go-round.

  • “If not for the Tiddy Bear commercial, I never would have known that seat belts slicing into people like razor blades was such a common difficulty.”

    Obviously the writer is not a woman, or doesn’t have a chest to speak of. Just saying…

    (Oh, and I love my snuggie!)

    Comment by Lala on November 13, 2009 at 10:54 pm

  • Hmm seems like they should put a little note in the add that says “Free bath robe included”

    and how about this if you wear a bath robe the wrong way you get a snuggie if you wear a snuggie the wrong way you get a bath robe

    Comment by Mario on December 9, 2009 at 10:45 am

  • oh by the way that little book light they include i bought one of those at a Dollar Tree for a buck before the snuggie came out

    Comment by Mario on December 9, 2009 at 10:54 am

  • Thought I would chime in here. I placed an order for 4 of them yesterday. They trick you into buying 4 by making you think you’re buying 2 but they sell the snuggies as a PAIR so 1 order quantity = 2 snuggies.

    Furthermore, they charge nearly $8 PER snuggie shipping so 4 snuggies = $31 = a $91 order..which they don’t disclose this amount until AFTER your order is place.

    now, I understand the math adds up and that TECHNICALLY they aren’t breaking rules (ethical rules maybe) but I called to cancel the order and she said they had already shipped. (the next day.. actually impressive given the 4-6 week wait I’ve been seeing on other review sites) and I asked about the return policy and she said I had 30 days but if I kept them, I would get the $31 shipping refunded back to my account.

    IF and this is a big IF they do actually refund that, it’d me I got 4 deluxe 2X thick fabric w/pockets snuggies for $15 each. I can live with that.

  • I got the snuggie a few months ago and its the best way to stay warm on the cold northeastern ngihts

    Comment by Steve on December 17, 2009 at 9:30 pm

  • i agree that buying the snuggie at they’re website is a huge rip-off. so thats why you buy is elsewhere. amazon, cvs, rite aid, etc. you may not get bogo but you wont be paying $15 for shipping or waiting 2-6 weeks for it to get there.

    Comment by A on December 22, 2009 at 1:10 pm

  • Um. maybe some sweats and a sweatshirt?

    Comment by wow on December 30, 2009 at 12:08 am

  • The Snuggie is a cheap imitation of the Slanket. QVC had the “Ultimate Slanket” (with a pocket for your feet) as a Today’s Special a few months ago, and I bought one for myself, hubby, and my mom. It rocks. I usually wear it like a robe when I’m sitting at the computer (otherwise your back isn’t fully covered) with it wrapped around my legs and can easily step out of it. Just made it through the second blizzard of the season in DC, and we’re expecting more precip tomorrow– if we lose power, this will be a godsend. It’s excellent at retaining body heat, unlike any robe I’ve had.

  • OMG! The new commercial has GOT TO GO! Screw you SNUGGIE with your God awful jingle!
    The Macarena theme song. Terrible just terrible. I have turned OFF my tv due to your commercial. No Thank You! EVER.

    Comment by Toni on October 21, 2010 at 3:37 pm

  • A fine example of a half assed idea that some how is popular. You people actually buy this piece of shit? What the fuck were you thinking? What the fuck were the idiot that made this crap was thinking? “This is going to make it big with rich idiots and wall-mart retards!” The only good use I can see for this thing is getting some pussy outdoors.
