Disclosure: I received an Ugly Snuglie in exchange for my honest opinion with an option to include it in my Holiday Gift guide.
Not everything in life is perfect and yet if you look at most stuffed animals they start out that way. That is not the case with the UglySnuglies, they start out a little on the irregular side, but that doesn't make them any less adorable. I was introduced to these as an option for a Holiday Gift guide inclusion and it took me a moment to check them out and decide they would be a good fit. At first I figured they were just another version of the stuffed animal with compartments, but after looking at the details and the additional features of each of the UglySnuglies I found that these aren't just a stuffed animal minus the stuffing.
Rowdy Rabbit is actually a radio with headphones as well as a weird looking rabbit. I didn't choose him specifically because he reminded me a little too much like the movie Donnie Darko. If you haven't seen the movie do so it's a mind trip and by and far one of the most epic movies, but back to the UglySnuglies. The next offering is Porky Panda, he is the one I chose to review as honestly out of him and the Unusual Unicorn I had a real battle. I mean look at him below he's a cute little bugger, makes me want to keep him for my bed.
As you can see above he has a blanket in his bum, yes I said bum. The blanket is why I went with him because honestly what my son loves most of all is being wrapped up warm in my lap. He's still a snuggler and I love take advantage of that time, I know it's only a few years before I have the cooties and won't get the snuggles any more.
So I like As seen on TV items, although rarely are they of great quality, but I can say this is a great stuffed animal. The bear is super soft almost silky and doesn't seem to have any defective seams of any sort. The blanket is great, although I'd purchase the bear itself just for the quality of craftsmanship and the goofy face. This is definitely one of those gifts that kids will be excited about, if you wonder if they want one just play the ad and watch them beg for one. I am glad I had the opportunity to see one of these in person because I might have passed it over had I not, overall I would say great toy, great gift and super cute.
