The Snuggie, a thin fleece blanket with sleeves, reached a special height of pop-culture relevance back in 2009, but they’ve never really gone away. (Though some may have dissolved into piles of Snuggie lint.) Sleeved blankets have remained on the market all this time, and now they’ve taken kind of a weird turn into costume territory. If you’ve dreamed of lounging on the couch while pretending to wear a tux, the new generation of Snuggies are for you. [More]
Just because you can write a song about Snuggies and set it to the tune of “Macarena,” that doesn’t mean that you should. Yet the evil geniuses behind the Snuggie have done so, and inflicted it on the Internet. And the airwaves.
There is the Snuggie that you wear while watching American Idol and eating Cheetos. That’s the regular, plebeian fleece Snuggie. Then there is the Snuggie that you wear while reading continental philosophy and eating havarti with dill on organic rice crisps. That is the “happiness in bed” sleeved blanket.

Sometimes you need to leave the house, for instance to go to the supermarket or to attend a job interview, and let’s face it: that’s when the Snuggie fails you.

We work hard to bring our readers all Snuggie-related news, and were remiss in not reporting on an exciting product from Hot Topic before it finally disappeared from the market. Shortly before the holidays, Hot Topic introduced the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Sometimes I say to myself, “I like to wear a bathrobe and sweatpants around the house, but putting on two different articles of clothing is too much work.” Peering into the minds of people like me who are cold, lazy, and have given up entirely on the outside world, JC Penney has introduced the Snuggle Suit.

I often tell myself, “Self, I love to travel, but I hate forcing myself to sleep in places that don’t have satin sheets.” That’s where the Dreamie comes in. It’s like the secret hybrid of a sleeping bag and a Snuggie. Only in satin. And you, blessedly, can’t walk around in it.
