Advantages: large blanket, warm, arm holes
Disadvantages: not worth anything extra than a normal blanket
I was given one of these as a sort of joke present, I do like to get wrapped up on the sofa in my PJs and with a blanket, even though Im 29!
Now I have to say that before I start, it is very nice and cosy, it feels like a fleecy blanket, its very large and fits all the way around me and does keep me warm and stops the heating from going on. It is however the most unsexy piece of material that I own.
It claims to eliminate the need to 'fuss' with a blanket, what kind of fussing that is I dont know. Perhaps removing your arms from a standard blanket to reach for a cup of tea or something else warming. For this reason they have made arms in the slanket. They enable you to keep your hands free for all sorts of activities.
If you then stand up with the slanket on it looks like your wearing a very large furry long sleeved dress. It doesnt do up around the back so when you stand up you get cold and then it needs to be wrapped around like a normal blanket!
I have since given it to my gran as she genuinely finds it useful to keep warm and it helps keep her energy bill down.
If you actually would like to buy one of these instead of a regular blanket they cost between £5 -£25 on amazon, and you can get a variety of colours including cowprint! It could make a fantastic winter dressing up outfit as it would keep you warm on a night out!
If you are just interested in keeping warm then a throw from primark will do the same job.
Summary: a good dressing up outfit?
