I pride myself on keeping my finger on the pulse of the "As Seen on TV" schwag, yet I am never one to actually purchase any of that crap. I did come very close many many times however. Case in point: the Magic Bullet, Egg Wave, GT Express, OvGlove, ShamWow Super Shammy...I could go on. I even considered the Kinoki Foot pads for sheer curiosity. I did purchase BareMinerals makeup, but I bought it from Sephora so I do not consider it a true "As Seen On TV" product (it has evolved).
Yet now there is one product I have heard about that I do not believe I will be able to resist. The Slanket. Yes people, the Slanket - the blanket with sleeves. I am a hard core blanket person from way back. As we keep the heat in our apartment set to "just high enough to avoid freezing pipes," I am always bundled up under one. Unfortunately blankets have one major flaw: when you need to hold a book or change the channel your arms become exposed to the elements! I refuse to pass the remote to my husband for fear of a cable news onslaught, so I just let my poor arms suffer.
The Slanket is the answer to my prayers!!!! It is ingenious!!!! I can guarantee that Barney Stinson owns one, as he is a Sky Mall addict. I....must....buy......now. One problem though. The Slanket is pricey. $44.99 is a bit outside of my budget for "As Seen on TV" schwag (aka my husband won't let me spend that kind of money on a blanket no matter how many times I tell him that it is not a blanket, it's a Slanket). And I do not want to go for the cheap imitation either. The Snuggie does not have the same ring that the Slanket has. My only option is to wear my husband down. I reference the Slanket at least once a day. It is getting under his skin. I will have my Slanket. I will.
