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 bibs can be yours in a variety of colors and patterns, including “Designer Leopard.” Or maybe this can be a two-part present, to make it a Snuggie and Necky holiday season where no one gets cold ever?

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 red, and is customizable (um, you can personalize it with a name or phrase). After the Snuggie Fashion Show and Snuggies for dogs, we thought this trend could go no further. Then it did. [White Castle via Grub Street] Keep reading »

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. Keep reading »

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 just going to live in this for the next month until lil Hank is born lolol.” Uh, what does ‘lolol’ mean? Also, do I smell an endorsement opportunity? [People] Keep reading »

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 as a scarf, shawl or cardigan. It sort of looks like the travel-sized version of the Snuggie, but in a good way. I’m always finding that my arms are the body part that let me down; they get quite a bit colder than the rest of my body (must be that whole core versus extremity thing). But things change once I get inside whichever overheated place I’m headed. At that point, I don’t need the extra arm coverage anymore and I just want a scarf—which is my security blanket in the winter; I wear one every single day. (I don’t care if the pashmina is uncool. I still have a giant collection of them I use as scarves!) But, perhaps, my pashminas have seen their last days? This multi-use scarf/cardi solves all temperature problems. Is it fugly? I can’t tell. Would you wear it? I should say it costs a C-note, so it ain’t cheap. [Eryn Brinie] Keep reading »

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 “attractive gift tag included!” it’s like a fancier, new and improved version. Go ahead, ask anyone who has actually ordered the original blanket with sleeves and they will tell you the fabric is way lacking. Also, as Amelia points out, this oddly chic getup looks like something style icon Tilda Swinton might wear on the red carpet. Since it’s backless, she’ll want to be careful not to turn around and expose herself. [Karen Neuberger] Keep reading »
