      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A nice pair of slippers that served me well through the Winter months.

      My mother-in-law brought me these slippers for Christmas and initially I did wonder just what she was thinking?! Why would I want a pair of frogs on my feet? I was willing to give them a try as the thought was there (I think?) and have been wearing them throughout the winter months in our house quite frequently.

      These slippers come in a 'one size fits all' size and because I am wearing a size 7 or 8 normally I'm at the top of the scale for these. I have found that the size is adequate for me and one of my daughters (a size 4) has pinched these from time to time and been able to get around in them quite comfortably. The slippers are quite nicely designed with a soft green colour that's quite cute, they have an open back so they're very easy to just slip on when I get out of bed in the morning. These slippers look very welcoming with their soft green thready bits hanging everywhere and they do envelope my feet when I put them on. There is a fair bit of character to these slippers (unsurprisingly!) and they do look very cute when I'm wearing them. They have been a talking point with guests a few times since turning up unexpectedly at my house. They are quite large in size but they are not too cumbersome when wearing them.

      I must say that these slippers don't feel particularly well designed in places. The thread like pieces are very good for keeping your feet warm and cosy during the winter months but at the first sign of nice weather you'd want to stop wearing these just because of how sweaty and uncomfortable your feet will get. The soles are quite good for gripping on my carpeted floors and where I have wooden floors they don't hold up too badly, if a little slippery at times. The main bugbear I have with this is that the soles aren't particularly flexible. When I sit down or bend down to do something it just feels like the soles are quite flat and rigid, cardboard style! This is a bit of a disappointment to me as I'm often very busy around the house with one of my four children and I need a slipper that will withstand the kind of treatment a busy Mum needs to give!

      I must say that these slippers are very comfortable and for the few months that I have used them they have served me well. The general wear and tear of these slippers is quite good and I am sure if I put them away now they will last me next Winter as well, it's a bit of a guessing game after that though as they are only fairly cheaply made. I think these slippers are more about looks than functionality and they are definitely not the sort of slipper you'd want to be putting your rubbish out in just because of the thin soles. If you are looking for a novelty item for a member of your family then these are probably the right shoes for you, reasonably priced at £12.99 and readily available from Amazon as well as other stockists. I would recommend these for the Winter months but they are probably something that you'd hope not to have much use for at this time of year.

        Maybe not one to buy for the summer months but a great Christmas gift 3/5

        My boyfriends mum bought me a pair of these Fuzzy Feet Frog Slippers last Christmas after seeing similar ones on the DFS advert before Coronation Street! After seeing them she searched the internet for the company and chose the frog style for myself. I am a big fan of spending my evenings in after work chilling in my slippers so this was a great gift.


        The company Aroma Home creates the Fuzzy Friends characters; they started back in 2000 creating aromatherapy based body wraps and home comforts. They then branched out into the more commercial world of character slippers for both children and adults and finally their latest product being microwavable cuddly toys. Now the company has its range in department stores such as Debenhams and John Lewis as well as smaller shops and lots of major online retailers.


        The slipper is an open back slip on shoe design, which is very spacious inside but fitted enough to stay in place on your foot, I am a size 7 shoe and they fitted me great, they are recommended for sizes up to 7 and from size 4. The Fuzzy Friends Frog slippers are green in colour, no surprises there! The green is a pale and subtle colour rather than the normal garish green you often see associated with frog toys. On the front of the slipper is a large mouth design that stretches across the whole slipper frontage, it looks very cute! The frog has large white eyes that brighten up the face even more.


        In place of a plain material around the edges of the slipper and inside this design is made up of long and thin tufts of woven pale green polyester like material. This makes the sole of your foot feel very padded and protected, though the tufts seemed to get quite matted during long wears and could also get quite hot and sweaty. The base of the slipper is quite firm, though feels much like a piece of cardboard tucked inside of the sole. The slipper sole didn't seem to curve, more bend like a piece of card with your foot.


        The bottom of the slipper has an uneven bottom for grip purposes which is always a necessity for slippers in my house with all the lino flooring. The material on the sole of the slipper has frayed slightly but I have been wearing them constantly for four + months so I don't see a problem with this general wear and tear.
        The slippers are huge, be warned for those you who are quite clumsy (like me) they are quite bulky, but surprisingly lightweight.


        Adults

        One size only - fits most adult feet between a size 4 and 7

        Kids

        One size only - fits most feet up to children's size 2

        The company have a wide range of cute and fun slipper designs such as

        Bumble Bee

        Ladybird

        Pink Butterfly

        Poodle

        And Pig

        The RRP of these are £12.99 on the Aroma Home website and are generally around this price in stores and online. I don't think I would buy myself another pair at this price but they are extremely warm and great for the winter months. The frog design is very cute and I always get compliments when friends see me wearing them. Overall a comfy and fun slipper for both children and adults.

          A delightfully fun pair of slippers.

          I had a pair of Fuzzy Feet Rudolph slippers a few years ago and thought they were wonderfully comfortable, so when I spotted this Frog version on Amazon I just had to have them.

          My slippers are very slightly different to the ones you can see above in that the frog's eyes are wide awake (as opposed to dozing) and the mouth is lower down on the slipper, almost touching the lower seam. Strangely, both designs are shown on Amazon so it may be a case of pot luck as to which one you will receive when you've placed your order.

          These Fuzzy Feet slippers do not have sizes, they come as a 'one size fits all' pair of slippers with the promise that you will definitely fit them if your feet are between a size three and eight. I am a size five and find them to be absolutely fine, although I suspect someone who is a true size eight would struggle to make them fit comfortably. They are rather wide so unless you are used to wearing this bulky style of slippers then they may take a little getting used to, although despite the width the foot area is actually not much wider than a standard pair of slippers as it's the padding used to form the frogs' faces which make them seem so oversized.

          The twisted wool fabric which makes up the 'Fuzz' of the slippers is exceedingly comfortable, whilst walking around the house in them I can feel the bobbles of wool beneath my feet but this is not irritating in the slightest and actually feels rather nice. The toe area inside the slippers is a plainer, yet still furry, material and this is something I appreciate as I don't think I'd like the Fuzz between my toes and around my toe nails.

          The fact that the slippers are so fluffy (sorry, fuzzy) means they are surprisingly warm and comfortable. I don't know why I say surprisingly as they look to me like the cosiest slippers ever invented! The fabric also has a cooling effect, honestly it's as though these slippers are magical as when my feet are cold they warm them up - yet if my tootsies are feeling hot they'll cool them down.

          I wholeheartedly recommend these Fuzzy Feet Frog slippers, costing around £14 they are slightly more than I would usually spend on a pair of slippers. However, they're worth the money if only for the fun design - and look of pleasure on my three year old granddaughter's face when she sees me wearing them.

            good value for money

            I was bought these lovely slippers for christmas and have worn them everyday since as they are so comfortable and warm.
            These are the froggie slippers which cost around £10 from Debenhams and can be bought online at around the same price from sites like Amazom and Twenga.
            These are a fashionable trendy range on slippers and you can get other animals from the range if your not into frogs, they come as piggies, doggies, lambs, bumblebee's, tigers and there's many more other animals to choose from.

            They are a wool slipper and the front is woven where the face of the frog is embrodered with a big smile and the eyes are at the top where the foot is, the rest of the slipper is fluffy and woolly with tufts sticking out at the sides and where you put your feet. Undeneath the slipper is a darker green than the light green wollen top, this has a non slip bottom so that you don't slipabout and I found that these were quite good on laminate flooring when I went to stay at my son's over the christmas holidays. The bottoms are chunky so they feel comfortable and padded.

            They are a one size slipper going up to a size 8, I am a size 5 and find that they fit nicely and that my feet don't stick over the edges of the slippers, they are slip on type slippers and I do find that I sometimes have difficulty climbing the stairs with them on, as they are a one size they do slip off sometimes as I'm going up the stairs due to them being a little loose, going down the stairs is alright though ,but on the flat they are good and stay on my feet.

            I like the design of the slippers as they are cute and are warm looking, they invite you to relax after a hard days walking around delivering or driving and there's nothing better than to get home and put on your comfy slippers.
            It says to clean them with a damp cloth if they are dirty but I have popped mine into the washing machine on a low heated wash wrapped in a towel and they have been alright, the colour didn't run and they held their shape.

            All in all I'd be happy to recommend these to you as they are chunky, comfortable and warm.

              My fuzzy friends!

              I wanted to review my wonderful frog slippers as they are, sadly, coming to their end. My sister bought them for me last Christmas and I've been very happy with them for the whole time, so much so that I really resent the new pair I got this year! I'd never heard of Fuzzy Friends before I received my slippers so for anyone who doesn't know, they make big, fuzzy animal slippers and have more recently extended their range to include 'microwavable hottie' cuddly toys.

              The slippers

              The slippers are bright green in colour and shaped like a frog with a big mouth. They are 100% polyester but with thick fuzzy, woolly lining that you might expect would be uncomfortable on the feet. I found that it was quite nice to walk on rather than the usual velvety, slippy feel of slippers. The soles of the slipper are thick providing comfort and my feet soon made an imprint and fell into the same position nicely! The slippers are backless which is ideal for just slipping on and off throughout the day and the big, padded frogs keep the feet very warm and toasty. The underneath has small dimples on it which acts as a grip. I don't think this really added much to the slippers and they certainly weren't as grippy as totes socks or other slippers I've had in the past.

              Price and availability

              There are 12 different types of the slippers; frog, bumble bee, poodle, tiger, sheep, cow, reindeer, ladybird, duck, monkey, dog, pig and there are also lovely butterfly designs for children. The adult slippers are a one size fits most (3-8) so unfortunately for anyone with big feet, they probably won't fit.

              The slippers were originally sold in Aroma Home but now retail on Amazon and various other websites. Their recommended retail price is £12.99 but they can be found for cheaper than this online.

              Amazon £6.49 - £11.48 depending on style
              TheIncenseStore.com £8.89
              Fragrancedirect.co.uk £8.99
              Debenhams £10.50
              Aroma Home £12.99

              My experience

              I don't think you can go wrong with these as a present for a female relative or friend! I found a website selling them for £3.93 each last year so bought four lots and gave them out as presents which went down very well! I've not seen a deal close to this since but even at full price they would make an excellent present: novelty but at the same time, practical! I want the ladybirds or bumblebees next for myself!

              The only negative for me is that the underneath started to wear away quite quickly. The thin material with the grip on started to tear and eventually the padded sole started to appear through the bottom. The slippers are supposed to just be cleaned with a sponge but I hate the idea of them being dirty so mine have been through a washing machine a couple of times which might have helped to ruin the soles! However, they remained nice and clean by doing this so it was worth it! Also, I think a year is more than adequate for the life cycle of slippers - for me anyway!

              I started this review almost a week ago and I'm sad to say that yesterday, aged 1 year, 1 month and 2 days, my frog slippers went in the bin. It was the final straw when the padding coming out of the sole tripped me up in the kitchen and I ended up hitting my head on the door. I was very sad to say goodbye to these wonderful slippers and the house will look completely bare without them messing up the floor. Farewell froggies!

              I'm giving them a 5/5 - I blummin loved them!
