Slanket Review

The Original Blanket With Sleeves!

One subzero night in 1998 during my first semester of college I could not escape Maine's winter bite. While watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien I decided I needed to tear a hole in my sleeping bag so I could keep my upper body warm as I channel surfed during the commercial breaks. During Christmas vacation I commissioned the first Slanket to be made by my mother...and it was born. Everyone behind the The Slanket is on the same level when it comes to life. Besides creating a product to make people comfortable and warm, our life goals are not to accumulate mansions, SUV's, expensive watches and closets just for shoes. What we want in life is to travel the world and experience all its cultures while representing humanity positively. Whether surfing in Costa Rica, snowboarding in Austria, or studying language in South America and China, we love to spread our sleeves and let them flap in the wind, giving back in the process. BUT... there is nothing like coming home, wrapping up in THE SLANKET on your own couch and feeling the warmth of your friends and family.

I'm a huge bookworm, and love cuddling up inside with a great book and a hot cup of tea when it's cold outside. I always wind up spilling the tea as I try to juggle the blanket and my book. The Slanket fixes that - it keep my arms free! The blanket is super thick and soft and generously sized, so it's perfect for those cold nights.

The Slanket is available in 13 Solid Colors and 4 patterns. It also comes in a
special kid size, a travel size and in Siamese - The Slanket for 2. The Slanket would be perfect for anyone on your list, and is a gift that keeps on giving - The Slanket donates a percentage of all sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Some of the Slankets have special foundations they are donated to:

Kids Sofa Safari & Camo - Natural Resources Defense Council

Kids Walk the Slank - H20 Africa

Siamese in Limoges - H20 Africa

I received the Slanket at no cost to myself to review. The opinion in this post is entirely my own.
