Book Nerds Unite, Fun Stuff, Lists!

A common staple among voracious readers is a soft, cozy blanket and when the Snuggie first hit the market, our worlds were rocked. A blanket with sleeves so my arms don’t get cold while I read? PRAISE YEEZUS! But over the years, the Snuggie became the Slanket and then the blankoat and as a result, we’ve been inundated with designs that went from good to bad to ugly and downright ludicrous. Here are some of the most ridiculous Snuggie/Slanket/Blankoat designs we’ve seen around the web.


1. Snuggie Up™ Tuxedo

This is the preferred snuggie among British spies. (Also, who wears red bow-ties without a matching cummerbund? Come on Snuggie, get it right.)



2. Snuggie Up™ Female Evening Gown

Don’t worry ladies, we haven’t forgotten about you. Get your very own “female” evening gown (is there ever a time when an evening gown isn’t female?) complete with not-at-all-sexist cleavage.



3. Tattoo Snuggie

Did Ed Hardy design this?



4. Tiger Snuggie

When did dressing like Tony the Tiger become cool?




5. The Sealpelt

I have no idea what is going on here but apparently this is Iceland’s answer to the Snuggie.



6. Cupcake Booty Buddy

I wonder if it comes cupcake scented too.




7. Totoro Cloak

Okay, this one is awesome. Gimme it.



8. Hoodie-Footie™ for the Whole Family

(This is not technically a Snuggie, but it’s a close cousin.)

This photo makes me nervous and I don’t know why.



9. The Twosome Blanket

Another treasure from Iceland. WHAT IS GOING ON OVER THERE?!?!



10. Binary Slanket

01010111 01101000 01100001 01110100 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01101000 01100101 01101100 01101100 00111111 (Translation: What the hell?)



11. Elvis Presley Snuggie

My brain can’t process this.



12. Slice of Pizza Sleeping Bag

Again, not a true Snuggie, but IT’S A PIZZA SLEEPING BAG. (And it comes with optional veggie pillows!)



13. Ostrich Pillow

It’s a snuggie FOR YOUR FACE. The best part about this are those arm holes so you can rest your head on your desk and keep your arms warm. GIMME IT.




There’s nothing inherently wrong with this Snuggie, I just want to point out how ridiculous that book looks. Is he reading his high school year book? Fellow book nerds, what do you think he’s reading?
