Welcome to my double birthday bonanza celebrating both of my sons’ birthdays on Feb 23!

A month ago Jordan and I each got a Slanket. Jordan got the kids’ Slanket while I got the regular size.

We both got burgandy, so we match when we are lounging around.

Let me start this review by saying, I received another brand of a product similar to this and Slanket wipes the floor with the competition – by far.  I could not believe the difference.  Slanket is thicker, bigger, and doesn’t cause static electricity in my hair.  That last is hugely important.  I hate static.

The girls are each wanting their own kids’ Slanket now because, as you’ll see in his review, Jordan doesn’t share very well when it comes to his.

I’ll tell you with mine, I love it.  A couple of days ago I turned the heat down because it hasn’t been below freezing, at night it was still getting a little chilly for me.  But, with the kids snug as bugs in a rug in their bed, warm and cozy under their blankets, I didn’t want to turn the heat up if I didn’t have to.  Yo yo heating drives me crazy.  If I turn it up at night then I’m sweating in the morning, then either crack the sliding glass door or just sweat until the temperature adjusts to the thermostat change.  With the Slanket, I haven’t been turning the heat up at night.  I just sit here in my computer chair after the kids are in bed, covered up, sitting, as my kids call it, criss cross apple sauce, warm and happy and blogging away.

And I’ll now hand it over to Jordan for what he thinks about his kids’ Slanket.  Well, I will actually type what he says.

It’s so soft, fuzzy.  It’s well, awesome because, well, it’s all mine! Nobody can touch it by me.  And it has sleeves, and I can get as curled up as I want and not have to reach out.  I can read!  You don’t have to take your arms out.  Oh yeah, did I mention that it’s all mine.  I recommend it to everybody who hates to have to get all curled up and have part of their body sticking out of the blanket.  If you buy that, you won’t have to get out of it.  Your hands are already out.  Phone’s ringing, reach out and grab it.  If your reading a book, only your hands and head will be back, and that is why I recommend the Slanket.

I’m thinking Jordan is looking for a job at Slanket.  He really does truly love it that much.  He carries it around the house with him.  (That might be more so his sisters don’t get it if he puts it down.)

So, Slanket gets a huge

thumbsup

for all the reasons listed above.  Which, if you read Jordan’s review, are multiple.  I’ll just say that we love it!

Today I have a kids’ Slanket to giveaway to one of my readers! (Come back tomorrow to win a regular sized Slanket.)

Note for size: The kids’ Slanket is 44″W x 66″L.

Jordan will be 11 next week and he fits in his great still (as you can see).  He’ll probably move up to the adult size sometime, but this is good for now.

    We’ve been a bathrobe family for a while now, but jr. doesn’t seem to like wearing his, he prefers to wrap up in a blanket instead. I’d like for him to try one of these babies to see if he likes it any more. We’d go with the Walk The Slank. Thanks.
