Snuggie - Snuggie instead of a blanket?

My nephew wants one. I don't personally know any one that has one.They have sold millions. Apparently they are VERY popular. Me, I'd jus go grab my blanket off my bed and be satisfied with that. http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/living/2009/01/30/carroll.snuggie.cnn

At first I thought they were silly. I mean all you need is a blanket! Then one day I was in my room, it was freezing and I was reading. I had a blanket and it was so frustrating. I couldn't get it to stay in place. The it dawned on me! Not only do I now want a snuggie but I think they are so smart! Something so simple seems to work really well.

I use my sweater and put it over my feet and I wear sweaters, but if someone wants to get one for me for my birthday I will not refuse. Sometimes these as seen on Tv have good buys like those white tv trays whose legs slip under the couch, except for our couch, it goes right down to the bottom. But I would not buy one for myself, cannot afford it.

I can't say thaat I really want one, but as the "as seen on tv" products go, I don't think it is too bad of a deal. Personally, we always have atleast one blanket on the couch and usually the only thing on me that gets cold are my feet, so that works just fine. The snuggies I guess would be good if you like to cover all they way up and still have your hands free. I think they only sell for $20 and they do a two for one deal, so you they are about $10 each. Like I said, not neccessarily a bad deal.

I want a snuggie blanket. So does my daughter. They look so cozy and I love being cozy. I think they would be great for the winter. Although a blanket does just fine I still want a snuggie.

I have two of them one for hubby and one for myself. My oldest son is in the band and they are awesome for sitting in the bleachers at cold band competitions! Hubby uses his to sit and watch TV but I don't really use mine too much at home. But that's because I'm not really one to sit still long enough to bundle up! . They are realy warm and roomy though. I took my nephew to the last competition as hubby sit that one out and he used my husband's and I just rolled up the sleeves and tucked the length in around him and he was warm!

Hi. ersmommy1. I bought a Snuggie blanket in January of this year. I have a burgundy colored Snuggie. I bought this because my blanket was not helping whenever I would got the sudden and ongoing chills. With the Snuggie blanket, I am able to have this blanket wrapped all the way around my body and it really keeps me very warm and toasty. I can relax and go to sleep with my Snuggie blanket too. A Snuggie blanket has really became a great item for me to have. I don't even have to turn my heat on high because of this Snuggie blanket. It feels like it is heat insulated.

My cousins boyfriend wants a couple of them but I don't think I would want one. I see them all the time in commercials and seems that the back it out of them so if your setting up your back will get cold. like you when I get cold I grab my big fluffy comforter off my bed and that is good enough for me. They aren't showing you people walking with the snugglies on on...which would seem to be hard to put on and off to go to the bathroom or run to the kitchen for a treat. So for me a definite no won't be getting those.

I've seen them on TV but I wasn't terribly impressed. I guess it is a nice enough idea but I'm usually not cold in my house unless it is the middle of the night. I tend to cool down as I sleep, so I can be quite chilled getting out of bed in the early AM hours. I don't think the Snuggies blanket would be any more helpful than my robe in those circumstances.

We have so many throws and blankets in the living room, I have a chest for them. My hubby got me an electric throw for christmas, everytime i cover up with it, I fall asleep. I would use one if I had one, but I am happy with the ones I have. I like to feel the fabric, some of the fabrics feel weird to me and I wonder how something that is 2 for 20 plus book lights can be of a nice quality fabric. BTW --- on cold night, we ever cover our dogs up.
