Take It From Me: Slanket Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

December 10, 2010

Slanket Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

When the weather outside is frightful, what do you do? How about snuggling up with a nice soft Slanket!
Slankets are the original blankets with sleeves! I know this concept might not be so new to people, as you have probably seen some items very similar to the Slanket around… should I mention names? But TRUST ME, I have done my research on these products and there is a reason why I am featuring the Slanket on our site! Did you know that those popular, find it everywhere “snuggle blankets” (attempting to hint the brand name) are pretty much a piece of crap?! (Pardon the language) It’s true! Look it up! Google it… Bing it…Whatever. I took it one step further and actually looked it up on Consumer Reports. One of the worst products tested, the snuggle blanket should barely be considered as a blanket. It is full of tiny holes (how is that supposed to keep you warm?) and within 10 washes, the lint trapped from it could make another small blanket (hence it falls apart). It is cheap both in cost and quality and is NOTHING compared to the wonderful Slanket! So, if you are thinking about purchasing a product like these, I would highly suggest the Slanket and here is why:
If you are a cozy, cuddling, must-have-a-blanket-on-the-couch-with-me-at-all-times person like me, you might be wondering what it would be like to have a blanket with sleeves. Well let me tell you- it’s heaven! The day I received my Slanket, I opened it, and have not parted with it since. In fact, I am writing this review with it on! The Slanket allows you to cozy up on the couch, keep your entire body covered, and still be able to use your hands with its large, comfy sleeves. The Slanket is ginormous! Easily able to cover a 6-foot + tall man- its size is perfect to wrap yourself in any way you want! I also thought the Slanket was super soft! I would say it is a mid-weight fleece (not too light and not too heavy) that keeps you warm and toasty at all times! Did I mention that it is also machine washable?
One thing that I love about the Slanket is all of their stylish designs and styles! Slankets actually come in 4 different sizes-
Each with their own great qualities and functions! There are so many bright, vibrant, fun color and patterns choices as well! We got an Original in Chocolate and a Kids in Night Rain and love them both!
Slankets are the perfect gift for the holidays! Fun for all ages- give them to grandparents who need some extra warmth, a college student to remind them of home, your kids, and more!
