The Vendetta Against Slankets

I’ve been biting my tongue (yeah, OK Zoe, not really) on this item for a while, but enough is enough.


These are possibly the worst thing, fashion wise, since Ugg boots, since rah hair (seriously, I DO NOT understand this trend of looking like you’ve been having lots of fun in a hedge) and yes, even since Crocs (whats worse than the smell of one pair of Crocs? A shop full of them. I went into a Croc Shop in Amsterdam a few years ago and had to leave straight away – the smell was even worse than a branch of Lush!)

Anyway. Slankets.

The idea behind them is reasonably logical. If you’re curled up on the sofa with a blanket on, its a bit difficult to reach for things cause your hands are all nice and cosy.

However, the fact that someone has not only “designed” a blanket with sleeves (so, er, whats the difference between that and a dressing gown put on back to front?) but is charging between £20 and £25 for something that without sleeves will cost you £5 (oh Ikea <3) is just amazing. Whats even more ridiculous is that people are actually paying this for a fleecey blanket!

I find the Slankets insane enough (and honestly, a little bit chavvy) but to find that there is one so you can snuggle up with your significant other nearly made my head explode. (Seriously, super uber smugness right there. Look at their smug little faces)

If anyone even tries to suggest buying one of these for me, I will hurt you.

(P.S. WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT? Apologies for the language, but its insane!)

    My brother actually made a similar comment about them being backwards dressing gowns when mother got me one for Christmas (can I please clarify it was not asked for!). But then my sister-in-law promptly told him you wouldn’t put a dressing gown on over the top of your clothes (which you may still have on when needing use of the slanket).

    So I’m trying to justify that part.

    Though I think I maybe failed.

    I saw these for sale in Asda the other day and nearly died laughing. The ‘siamese’ one is just wrong. I can understand if you’re a student or old person and can’t afford to have the heating on or something, but just put a jumper on instead??

    I love my slanket too, though I got it as a gift. I can see what you mean about the backwards dressing gown / £5 fleece blanket thing, though in its defence it is much thicker and nicer fabric than the average Ikea fleece blanket, or any I’ve bought anyway.

    I agree they should be cheaper though!

    Re. the smug people under the double rug: are you sure there isn’t someone else under there too? What’s that arm resting on? They’re not that close, and he’s smiling way too much.

    I have to agree with you as well – hate Crocs (goddamn ugly even i they ARE ‘comfy’ – have some shoe-dignity!). Uggs aren’t pleasant either.

    I saw the ‘slankets’ online when looking at sites for Christmas present ideas (sites like Firebox etc that offer all manner of gadgets and novelty stuff) and wondered ‘WTF?’ too. I just don’t see the appeal, personally.
