The Snuggie! A cheaper alternative that comes with free booklight! Buy 1 get 1 for the cost of shipping... thinking of buying one for Mom for christmas. Although when I was a kid a snuggie is what we called it when someone would pull your undies up your butt, I guess more commonly known as a wedgie these days
I love infomercials

Thanks so much for providing this link! I am going to place an order as this is a perfect gift for my niece who depends on a wheelchair for her mobility. I am going to keep the other one for myself as I am always cold and winter has arrived here in Wisconsin. --Ramona

I saw the infomercial too and was wondering what happens to the extra bottom bulk when one gets up to pour a cup of jo? They show the person fully covered on the sofa but do not show the bottom when the actor is standing. Pull-cords to yank it up?!!

It should be noted that the postage cost almost as much as the 2 snuggies! $15.90 to AZ.

Is it me, or does the old guy look like a monk the way he's sitting?

Not just you, I thought that too. I'm not really sure what happens to the excess, i wasn't able to find measurements anywhere, and really if you're walking around the house wouldn't you flip it around like a robe (or a really sweet Jedi cloak)? I would...

I would also be afraid that the extra fabric at the arms might drop down into food or an open flame! It would take some getting used to.

Someone told me that they saw this for sale in either Toys R Us or Babies R Us. Sort of a strange place for these but that shipping charge is a killer. I have purchased items seen on TV in CVS..they have a section. Have not seen this though. Think there are whole stores where you can purchase "as seen on tv" products too but haven't researched where yet.
Liked the snuggie when I saw it but definitely would not pay that much for shipping.

Yes there are a few of those "As Seen on TV" stores around, one is right here in Minneapolis at Mall Of America.
From my POV I would rather pay $8 shipping (it's only $36 total for two blankets and two "free" book lights) than drive 20-30 minutes to MOA, find a parking space, find the store, waste half a day just for one blanket. I hate MOA...
