The Snuggie Hug is a weighted blanket which doubles as a robe. It even has sleeves! This product has several functions. First of all, it's a warm, comfortable blanket made of soft material that you can relax in around the house. The material is made of soft microbeads which apply weight to the blanket, evenly throughout. This concept is based on research which concluded that the weight against your body promotes a calm, even mood. Pressure on the body causes the neurotransmitters melatonin and serotonin (that are responsible for mood) to be released into your system.
The cost of Snuggie Hug is $39.99 and the shipping is FREE!
The product is made of incredibly soft velveteen material which feels soothing and comfortable against the skin. This is part of the therapeutic value of the item. It's very pleasant and cozy to wear in your home.
This blanket is weighted with microbeads that are distributed throughout. The pressure of the blanket against your body is therapeutic. This is based on the theory behind Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation. The weighting of the blanket evenly all over your body releases serotonin and melatonin into your system. These are two neurotransmitters responsible for balancing mood. Melatonin secretes a substance that relaxes you and puts you to sleep.
Besides being a comfortable blanket, the Snuggie Hug has sleeves that you can slip your arms into, so you can wear it around like a robe! You can sleep under the blanket, and then get up, slip your arms into the sleeves and wear it down to breakfast. The heaviness of the blanket holds it in place so you don't even need a waist tie.
The product is big enough to cover even an adult completely but is also suitable for children above the age of five - for sleeping. As a robe, it`s too big for children to use. Its specific size is 50 x 75 inches (127 x 190.5 cm). The blanket weighs six pounds.
This product has incredible therapeutic benefits for the user. Research has proven that wearing an evenly weighted blanket can stimulate the release of the neurotransmitters melatonin and serotonin, which create a more positive mood. They lower anxiety levels and promote calmness. In addition, the softness of the material promotes a feeling of calm relaxation.
This blanket has more than one useful purpose. It`s a cozy blanket, a therapeutic tool, and a robe to wear around the house for lounging purposes.
Between the silky soft velveteen material and the weighing all over the blanket, this item may help you fall asleep and sleep more deeply. The pressure of the blanket releases melatonin into your system, which is the brain chemical we release when it`s time to go to sleep. It also initiates the release of serotonin, a brain chemical which deals with mood. This should make you feel calmer, which will help you sleep.
Unlike some competitors, there is at least a selection of colors - even if it`s only a choice of two. However, the electric blue and forest green colors are quite nice - if you like those colors.
The item is reasonably priced; about average for similar products that don`t have the weighted/therapeutic feature.
Relax on the couch, get up and make a snack - this blanket with sleeves keeps you really warm wherever you go, and it leaves your hands free to do whatever you need to do.
The material is soft, but velveteen also gets very hot. This is especially true if you`re using it as a robe and it`s covering your entire body. When you`re enclosed inside the material it could get uncomfortable. This may make it more difficult for you to sleep comfortably, rather than less.
The two colors on offer are strong colors, and not necessarily the best or favored colors for everyone. They at least have to offer a neutral color like black or beige for people who prefer those kinds of hues. Ideally, a selection of colors would be nice.
The design of this item really isn`t attractive looking. It has a pattern of squares in front that is very plain and somewhat ugly, and a big, scoop neck that doesn`t look very nice. If it doesn`t look attractive, it may not feel attractive when you`re wearing it.
Although this would seem to be a benefit, for someone who is on the short side the blanket would drag on the floor. The item wouldn`t then be useful as a robe, because it`s too easy to trip over it and get hurt.
Some of the competing products have pockets in front. Any sort of pocket would be helpful for when you`re wearing the item as a robe. The manufacturers are really focusing on the blanket function of the product.
Other similar products have a hood, which among other things keeps your head extra warm when you`re walking around wearing the Snuggie Hug. It would also work well if you were using it as a blanket because the hood could function as a sort of pillow.
The manufacturer advertises that these blanket/robes can be used by children over five. Children can use them as blankets, but a small child would be likely to trip over the item and hurt themselves.
With these cozy blankets, you may never leave the house at all!
My advice would be to have a look at all of the competing products and compare them with this one before making a final purchase. It seems like some of the manufacturer`s claims may be a little exaggerated. The blanket may be difficult to sleep in sometimes because it gets too hot. Of course, this lowers its therapeutic value considerably.
On the market, there are comfortable jacket/blanket style products which have sleeves, and there are therapeutic weighted blankets, but there are no other weighted blankets which have sleeves. Therefore, this product is unique in at least one way. The manufacturer is trying to join the two concepts in one product, and it works quite well.
The Snuggie Hug is quite reasonably priced, especially in comparison with the competing products. There are similar items that don`t have the weighted feature and aren`t as therapeutic, and they cost about the same price as this product. This blanket with sleeves offers much more value for the consumer compared with most of the competing products.
