Hug Rug are adorable animal rugs that your child can take anywhere. Available in lion, tiger, moose, bear, and more, these tugs are soft and your child can lie on them as they do their homework, camp outside, or sleep. They are made from top quality fabric, so they're soft to the touch and your child will never want to let go of them. Not only that, but their non-slip service means that your child can sit on them without slipping. They're great for a gift, or if you want your child to have a companion with them for life.

The Claim

The infomercial depicts children having fun with the Hug Rug while claiming what it does. Its premise is simple: Hug Rugs are plush animals that look like skin rugs, and they can be taken anywhere. It claims that you can take it camping, do homework on it, sleep with the rug, and more. It's said to be made from soft fabric that is cuddly and comfortable. Surface wise, it is said to be made from a non-slip surface, so your child will not trip over it when it's on the floor. This means they'll sleep tightly on it without falling off.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Hug Rug is $39.99 plus $7.99 shipping, for a total price of $47.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Hug Rug being discontinued. Hug Rug may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How It Works

Hug Rugs are large children’s rugs that look like animals—they even have big, cuddly heads. Adults can also use them if they choose. You can lay your Hug Rug down basically anywhere, as the bottom of each rug has a non-slip grip that enables you to move around on it without slipping. Standing and even dancing on your rug is possible. Aside from using your Hug Rug as an actual rug, you can loop it over your back and wear it as an animal costume when playing with your friends. It’s also made of soft plush, so you’ll be able to sleep with it comfortably, too.


  1. Nighttime
  2. Use your Hug Rug as a floor rug in your bedroom during the day, and then move it into your bed at night to help keep you warm.

  3. Naptime
  4. The Hug Rug is also great to use when you’re having an afternoon nap. If you can’t quite get to sleep, you can just lie there and cuddle the rug like a regular stuffed animal.

  5. Sleepovers
  6. Hug Rugs are fun for bringing to sleepovers, especially if your friends have them, too. Using one may also reduce homesickness at a friend or relative’s house since it will seem like a little piece of home.

  7. Camping Trips
  8. A Hug Rug will keep you warm and snug while you’re camping, even if your tent is fairly cool at night.

  9. Doing Homework
  10. Doing homework is not always fun, but sitting on your Hug Rug or having it as a buddy beside you will make it more pleasurable.

  11. Watching Television
  12. When watching television or movies in your bed, on the bedroom floor, or in the living room, a Hug Rug makes a great blanket or seat.

  13. Video Game Play
  14. If you like to lie on your stomach while playing video games, your Hug Rug will provide great comfort as you do so. You won’t get sore from lying directly on the floor.

  15. Playing Pretend
  16. If you and your friends all have Hug Rugs, or you have more than one, you can make them talk to each other. Alternatively, you can all put them on your backs and play different characters.

Positive Points

  • Six Different Animals
  • The Hug Rugs come in six different animal designs: black or polar bear, white tiger, moose, lion, and orange tiger. Neither of these have any gender-specific attributes, so they will appeal to children of both genders.

  • Realistic Looking
  • While many animal-themed products for kids come in colors like neon green and pink that are rarely seen in the wild, Hug Rug animals have similar colors to wild ones. Therefore, kids can learn more about the true appearances of these creatures.

  • Large
  • The Hug Rugs are fairly big, so two small children can even fit on the same one at once. If you’re a teacher using them in the classroom, or a parent with many kids, you may not need to buy one for each small child.

  • Good Birthday Gift
  • The Hug Rugs always appear fun and cuddly, so any child will likely be happy to receive one for a birthday present ( or as a gift on another holiday ).

  • Pets Will Enjoy
  • If you have cats or dogs, they will also like lying down on your Hug Rug. It is safe for them to do so, as the non-slip grip will protect them from sliding around, too.
