~ What is it? ~
That is a great question!
I was with my brother whilst he was shopping for a present for his then girlfriend (she finished with him four days later :( ) when he spotted these slipper type things. She had a thing about frogs so he bought her a frog shaped one of these foot cosy's. I wasn't expecting one myself, however after I said how cute the piggy one's were my brother ended up buying one for me too. I was nicely surprised on Christmas morning as I hadn't been expecting it at all.
So, to put this in an easy way, this is like a big giant slipper, although I wouldn't recommend trying to walk in it! If you do feel the need to try and shuffle around, I can recommend doing a jump - Just not when you have just made a cuppa!
At first glance you could confuse it for a cuddly toy, but on closer inspection you will notice that the piggy part simply covers the front and at the back it is just open, like a slip on slipper. You simply have to pop your feet into the front to keep them toasty warm.
The material is incredibly soft and fluffy, and it does a superb job at keeping you snuggly!
~ Practical? ~
In a word - No.
I prefer to wear slippers as that way my feet stay warm in my slippers at all times, I don't have to remove my slippers to go to the loo or make a cuppa etc but with this of course, I do have to pull my feet out of the pig in order to be able to walk.
But when I'm relaxing on the sofa in the night, watching a film or something, I do find it useful then. The bottom of this is fluffy so unlike my slippers which have harder bottoms it is not likely to mark the leather. So for keeping your feet warm it is practical.
~ Do I like it? ~
I love it! My 5yr old loves it more however and it now resides in his bedroom where it has been for the last two weeks or so, he likes to sit on his bed with his feet tucked in it whilst he is watching TV or whatever.
I love it in the cold evenings when I am not planning on moving from the sofa for a good while, all snuggled in my pyjamas and dressing gown with my feet stuffed inside this. Lovely!
It is quite large and my hubby can just about fit his size 10 feet into it comfortably.
I believe my brother paid in the region of £7 - £8 for this which I think is really good value for money. I have owned it for 15 months now and I have washed it on a low temperature a couple of times, and I have also put it in the tumble dryer which ensures that it comes out all nice and fluffy.
Thanks for reading :o) x
