Fuzzy Feet Frog Slippers
Advantages: Warm, soft, really cute!
Disadvantages: The base of the shoe became torn after a while
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 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
Aroma Home £12.99
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!
