Snuggie Scam Rattles The Infomercial World

As loyal Frisky readers, I am sure that many of you own a Snuggie as well as The Perfect Bacon Bowl, since you love to lie down swaddled in fabric and read this site while eating food out of a bowl also made of food. These two "As Seen On TV" products are marketed to…

Would You Wear This Hooded Cupcake Snuggie? Plus, Lessons From The Dowager Countess!

Love it or leave it: this hooded cupcake snuggie? [The Mary Sue] Binging on TV shows, as opposed to watching each episode as they air, is apparently a controversial subject. [Newser] A guy assaulted his girlfriend because she broke his bong. [Your Tango] Um, so this woman was so pissed off about how she looked…

Cuddle Up To Superman and Wonder Woman

For those of you who wish Halloween was a year-long affair or still dream of being a super hero(ine), we have some good news for you. Some genius is trying to capitalize on the dwindling Snuggie craze by creating Snuggie-esque wraps that feature Superman and Wonder Woman on the front. Like the Snuggie, these comfy…

It’s The Slanket Armchair, AKA The Slarmchair

The Snuggie armchair: it appears to be an actual thing. Or is it a Slanket armchair? The website that sells this atrocity is in French, so we will defer to our Parisian correspondent Leonora's translation. But my hunch is that the copy reads, "You stupid Americans, why would you buy a Snuggie armchair when you…

What Your Sex Life Had Been Missing: A Love Rug!

This is what is wrong with society today. Just a few decades ago, people had the opportunity to have a sensual carpet experience that promised a threesome-like result. Now, all we have is a glorified backwards robe. I suppose you could cut the sleeves off your Snuggie and try doing the dirty on it, but…

Video: The Snuggie Fights Back Against The Snazzy Napper

Last week, I discovered the Snazzy Napper, which, in my opinion, is way more edgy than the Snuggie. But the Snuggie will not go gently into that good night. In an effort to remain competitive in the ever-evolving sleep accessory market, the Snuggie is diversifying with new limited-edition prints and a new ad campaign ...

Our Worst Nightmare: The Fur Snuggie

We are officially horrified. Snuggie has decided to make a genuine fur backwards bathrobe product line, which will be endorsed by some serious star power. Not that we are PETA-crazed or anything, but no animal should ever have to die for a Snuggie! And speaking of PETA, you know they got all up on thi…

The Snuggie Gets A High-Concept Makeover

When I began working from home, I easily fell into the freelancer traps that are at first appealing, then disgusting. See: working in bed, not wearing pants all day, etc. Near a breaking point, I instituted new rules in order to maintain a semi-normal lifestyle. Bra must go on by 10 a.m. You must wear…

Brace Yourselves For The “Marshmallow Soft” Hoodie-Footie

You can learn a lot from this video. For example, even though I'm the Style Editor here at The Frisky, I was not aware that "footed PHs for women are all the rage" right now. Really!? Good to know, good to know. In combining slippers, a hoodie and a blanket, the new Hoodie-Footie Snuggle Suit…

The Sleep Suit Is A Snuggie For Narcoleptics

I have to say, the first time I set eyes on the Sleep Suit, I knew I had to have it. A Snuggie-like suit that enabled me to fall asleep anywhere? Yes, please! Usually, if you go to sleep, you do it at home, at night, in your bed. Not so with the Sleep Suit!

The Japanese Super Snuggie Will Turn You Into A Human Larva

The Japanese two-legged sleeping bag is amazing, not because it's a revolutionary design, but because someone thought people would actually want it. There's no way any infomercial spokesperson would touch this thing. [Impact Lab]…

Blankets With Sleeves (And Legs!) Have Been Keeping The Masses Snuggly Since 1975

Copyranter just uncovered what could be considered the precursor to the Snuggie/Slanket craze -- a onesie with feet called "The Bundler" was THE "sleeper" gift of the holiday season in 1975. The Bundler is far more body-conscious than its modern counterparts, thanks to the fetching rope belt. Step up your game, Snuggie! [Copyranter]…

Snookie/Snuggie Joke Fail

We're not sure what genius thought up this hilarious Snookie-of-"Jersey-Shore"-inspired blanket with "skeeves" pic that's making the rounds today, but we're not really laughing. One, making fun of the fact that she was physically assaulted (MTV is no longer airing the scene in this week's episode) is just kind of nasty, and two, isn't everyone…

Goodbye Snuggie, Hello Necky

Watch out Snuggie. There's a new random must-have infomercial product on everyone's wish list this holiday season: The Necky. It's for everyone who loves to spend money on random items, or the truly lazy who can't figure out how to properly tie a scarf. For the low price of $9.95, two of these scarves with…

The White Castle “Couch Pouch” Is Eerily Snuggie-Like

Fast food just got this much more disgusting: White Castle (you know, that burger place that packages their square creations in sacks) has created their very own Snuggie, called the Couch Pouch. As if Americans needed more excuses to sit on their butts and inhale fast food. It retails for $49.99, comes in blue or…

Wrap Yourself In This Booty Buddy Blanket

BuzzFeed calls it the "hipster Snuggie." Urban Outfitters calls it the Booty Buddy Blanket. I call it $68 worth of fugly.

Kendra Wilkinson Gets Snuggified

Kendra WIlkinson is pretty pumped about her new Snuggie. "Hank came back from the store yesterday and surprised me with the best present ever….A SNUGGIE!!!!!!!!!!" she wrote on her website. "I see the commercials all the time and I always want one … it’s so exciting that I have my own now. I think I’m…

Is This Half Snuggie Genius Or Fugs?

Designer Eryn Brinie is a fave of Rachel Zoe, Cameron Diaz and Jessica Alba—she's got this vaguely Euro style going on with her clothes and focuses on basics. Well, I'm not sure if this is one basic or a combo of basics, but Eryn's sleeve muffler scarf, with its multifunction personality, can be worn a…

This Snuggie Impersonator Must Be Stopped!

I never thought I'd be sitting here today defending the Snuggie, but after coming across this blatant rip-off called the "KN Kozy," I feel like someone has to stand up for this gross injustice. Then again, upon closer inspection, we're strangely drawn to Karen Neuberger's ultra-plush copy. At $40 with a satin ribbon trim and…
