    From the look of those things any heavy blanket could be quickly turned into a snuggy with a decent sewing machine and a Frontier momma at the wheel.With Two heavy blankets one could make an Indian teePee type of thingie or in brown with a Franciscan Capuchin scapular and black cowl and belt like a Monk .

    If you go to their web site they show the basic unit with the sleeves but if you want pockets its extra .The basic blanket is rather thin and comes in two different colors and if you opt for a heavier material, Thicker blanket, that's extra. They did offer a two fer with a free reading light .The automated order procedure asked you options,number of,color of,thickness of each showing the tabulated cost and after they had your credit card number.All of the hidden extra costs doubled to include a separate shipping charge and the order closed ,So long suckers !

    I think I must have seen this ad too many times, that I'm even pondering this.
    Too much late night TV? I think I've only ever seen one ad for these things.

    A lot of these ads - ShamWow, Snuggies, etc., are getting a lot more airplay than they would otherise because ad revenues are down and ad time is being sold more cheaply. If you haven't seen them yet, you will. It's just a matter of time.

    People laughed about the "Pet Rock". The guy that came up with the crazy Idea laughed to,all the way to the bank to the tune of 13 million dollars.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    And Chia pets are still on the market. If someone ever gave me a Chia pet I would have to assume that it was their way of telling me that they don't want to be friends anymore.

    I have no interest in those things. I may not be the most fashionable girl around, but that falls far beyond my allowable limits Sweaters and sweatshirts are wonderful things, and I made my self some fingerless gloves so my hands stay warm too ;)

    I like reviewing the various products at: Infomercialscams.com


    They have several complaints about the Snuggie.

    I have seen them up close.

    They are very thin and the back is open.

    But very popular and hard to keep in stock!

    Yes, very easy to make yourself, and you could use a thicker cloth.

    Now that I think about it, sitting here in the recliner with a blanket....my arms are cold....I need one. :)
