If you don’t own a Snuggie, or some other brand of armed blanket, then I can be pretty sure someone close to you does. The odd product took the world by storm and led to a kind of wave of fleeced armed blankets taking over homes across the USA and the world.
The Snuggie didn’t fill a gap in the market as blankets with arms already existed, it didn’t provide something everyone needed as the convenience really isn’t that much of a savior but what it did do was convince us that it was something we needed and something we could obtain for less than $10 each!
The Snuggie may well have been a bargain, people love the embarrassing look of them, it’s like a guilty pleasure for a Dad to be caught in his bright red Snuggie. The advertising worked and it roped everyone in!
Now, I am not saying there is anything wrong with owning a Snuggie, a Slanket or Freedom Blanket, or any of the other similar products. All are fun and add a minor convenience over a blanket.
