The Slanket Review


I’m naturally always cold so the heating bill is probably a little higher than it should be.  Most days you’ll find me around the house with a  blanket wrapped over my shoulders try to keep warm, I imagine I look pretty silly.  I found it hard to do much whether it be reading a book, enjoying a snack or playing video games with my husband without having to have my arms out in the cold. What was there I to do to keep warm and comfortable?

My dilemma was solved when I   recently found out about  The Slanket.   Basically, The Slanket is a very warm fleece blanket with sleeves! With The Slanket, I have the freedom to still move around without coming uncovered as it is designed to keep my entire body warm and my hands free! I will admit that I would’ve posted this review sooner but my husband kept hogging my Slanket! It’s great because it’s pretty roomy and long enough that you don’t have to worry about becoming uncovered. I’ve been using it everyday since I’ve received it and it looks like my husband is probably going to invest in one soon lest he not keep swiping mine!

You can even purchase a Slanket for your kids as they also come in smaller sizes and fun colors!

I love that The Slanket loves people and that’s why they donate sells to some pretty great causes!  All blue Slankets will raise money for H2O AFRICA. Green, brown, and grey Slankets will help contribute to the NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL. The lavender, ruby wine, and apricot will accumulate funds for the BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION! Isn’t that wonderful?

You can’t go wrong with keeping toasty and warm! Do you have a family member who has everything? I bet they don’t have a Slanket! These would make wonderfully warm and cozy gifts!
