The Slanket – Review and Giveaway

The Slanket is a humongous fleece blanket with sleeves. It allows the user to be curled up in a blanket but still be able to use their hands for other reasons. I will fully admit when the Slanket arrived on my doorstep I did a dance for joy. The concept of the Slanket is everything I could want for a work at home mother with two kids who are always asking me to open things or to pick them up.

ruby_lrgI pulled my Slanket out of the box, it was a fantastic red color called Ruby Wine that suited me quite well. The fabric was relatively soft fleece, not baby blanket soft, but soft enough for my liking. I decided to do the ultimate test and play the Wii (Dr. Mario). I curled up into our gaming chair and pulled the sleeved blanket over my arms and tried to maneuver myself into it. At first I was expecting a huge challenge but the simplicity was right there. I curled up in the chair with plenty of blanket to spare on my 5’3” frame. After playing the game for about 10 minutes I began to sweat! This blanket allowed me to play my video game with fully comfortable heat temperature.

My daughter also received the Slanket the same day. What’s wonderful about this product, that the competitors don’t offer, is they not only have the adult size they have a children’s size as well. My seven year old daughter and I have a tendency to curl up with our Slankets and relax together on the couch. Mine is large enough that I can fit myself and my two year old daughter under the blanket too without losing any coverage. This size does become slightly dangerous when I attempted to walk. This may be because of my horrible shortness. I found that when walking I could comfortably fit into the children’s size. Though, when laying down I certainly wanted my adult size back.

Critics claim “Why not throw on your robe backwards?” Do you want to know why you shouldn’t do this? It won’t be as long, warm, and comfortable. It’ll be bulky and awkward. The Slanket is not like that, it rocks.

It seems the child Slanket is now much cooler than any toy and my daughter has taken to bringing it in her backpack whenever we go anywhere. We even brought it for Super Bowl Sunday at my parents’ house. The best part is that it is machine washable so there is never any fear of your child dropping something on it and not being able to get it clean.

  50. I wanted to throw up an article in one of our Gawker sites, but unfortunately that despite that the slanket company ships to EU , Netherlands; you mention ” It is available to US residents only. “, so I can’t do that, nor can I follow you on twitter (my username is there) or post about it on my blog or post here that I would have done that, including subscribing to the rss feed, etc.

    I am sorry, I feel offended, this is your constructive feedback.

    Good luck to you US people, I will just sit here and stare from a distance. And fantasize about a potential night black colored slanket to keep me warm at night behind my computer in the cold february snowy winter days of Holland.
