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.
