Well, that’s horrifying

I guess because my kids are teens, I somehow missed the latest hey-this-is-kind-of-terrifying-and-your-kid-loves-it craze, the CuddleUppets. (See also: Pillow Pets.) So the idea here is that you need a cozy throw blanket… with a head… and feet… so that it’s like wearing the skin of a good friend. Oh, sure, that sounds perfectly normal and sweet!

If you’re not as easily disturbed as I am, and/or if you have a kid dying for one of these things, it looks like the regular retail is between $15-$20. Right now Amazon has the Pink Poodle CuddleUppet and the Yellow Dog CuddleUppet available for $9.99 and $12.99, respectively. Free Prime shipping, or eligible for free Super Saver Shipping on $25+.

May as well save some money while you’re giving me nightmares.

    What will truly give you nightmares? The song in the ad. Which is playing on a loop in my head. It was there before your post though

    We have some hooded blankets (from angry birds) from costco and we LOVE them, the kids put them on their heads in the morning to warm up, but those things are scary looking!

    this post really made me chuckle this morning – thanks! it’s so true that kids love these, while the parents are horrified that someone even thought to make them.

    What’s worse, is they’re about the ugliest faces I’ve ever seen on those things.
