Cuddle Up with a Nuddle

I’m sure that you are all familiar with the new “blanket as leisurewear” concept, As Seen on TV. I have to admit, that although I am a confirmed lap blanket user, I have made fun of these commercials, mostly because of the premise. I mean, seriously — playing backgammon while blanketed up? Is that necessary? Is using your remote control an insurmountable obstacle?

When I got an email from someone asking if I’d like to try out the Nuddle, I accepted, knowing that since I am a confirmed throw blanket user, my mind might be swayed about this particular innovation. Plus, the Nuddle is the blanket to the stars with celebrity endorsements from stars such as Debra Messing, Mariska Hargitay, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Rebecca Gayheart and more.

Am I a convert? I am.

But do I repent of my TV-advertised blanket scoffing? I do not.

The Nuddle is different. The thing that my kids and I love is that it’s thick and warm. Not thick in a stifling-hot sort of way — it’s that ultra-soft fuzzy fur-ish material that you just can’t stop touching. Also, notice that it does not have big weird sleeves. Instead it has slits that you can stick your arms through with an ultra furry soft pocket in the front if you want them covered. It also has a pocket for your feet.

There’s only one thing that I don’t like about this blanket: that we only have one.

We’ve been fighting over it. In the week that we’ve had it, I’ve used it several times as I cuddled up and read while the kids were at school. My 11-year-old daughter has taken it to her room several times, and we’ve had to retrieve it. In fact, she went to a slumber on Friday, and begged me to let her bring it with her. On Friday evening while she was gone, 5-year-old Kyle said with a sad sigh, “Oh no, the warm blanket is gone.”

This would be a perfect Valentine’s Day gift, especially if your love is far away at college, or in the military or something like that (could a cool soldier cuddle up with a super-soft blanket if his wife sent it to him??). Or just treat yourself so that you can get through the rest of the long winter.

You can buy them online at They are more expensive than the cheesy one, but in this case the quality is evident.

    This marvelous Nuddle in an adult size in my favorite color- midnight- will certainly warm much more than my body. It will create heated joy in the very cockles of my heart and there is nearly nothing so rare and so fine as properly warmed heart cockles. I thank you for a chance of winning this very fine giveaway.

    I think I’d like the kid Nuddle in fudge! I am only 5 feet, so I think that might be best…but if not, I would like the cream in adult size!

    Annette — I think I’d still go with the adult size. My daughter is about 5 feet tall, and it’s not extra long on her. It’s a good size for her to still use the foot pocket. I think that the child-sized ones are a fair bit smaller. –Jennifer

    I would choose the Adult size (I know I should get it for the kids as they all want a SNuggie now that my good friend came to visit with one, but this one actually looks comfy so I am gonna go for one for me :)) in Midnight

  4. says

    We would probably go with the adult size nuddle in chocolate. My daughter would be too tall for the kids size.

    P.S. Yes, those military members would snuggle with a blanket while deployed. **grin**

    I would love to own the Adult Merlot Nuddle. I have 2 poodles who love soft blankies and I know they would be on my lap with th Nuddle.

    This would be an awfully special treat since I (as the mom of course) am most of the time left without a blanket at tv time and must resort to sharing (or snuggling as they call it) with my kids. Of course everyone knows that you can not share a blanket with a kid who is determined to move around all over the place for about 30 min to get “comphy” before you are then ready to get up and find something else to do!!! And I love all the colors! (because you know that it’s bound to become someone else’s after I’ve had it for a day!) … hmmm maybe I’ll hide it… but where?

  7. says

    I would go with the adult nuddle in Merlot for me and then I would have to order a kids one and probably one for my mom! They look super comfy! Staciele(at)netins(dot)net

  9. jenny martin says

    I love the adult size in merlot….this looks so much nicer in quality than others i have seen. My kids would love the Kids one in cherry….

  10. Sheri says

    Wow – the Adult Latte Nuddle looks so warm and comfy. I’m sure I would love it and the reste of the family would be begging to use it too!!

  11. says

    I hadn’t heard of this particular blanket but I really like it’s special features. The pockets are a great idea! Very clever and I’m sure we’ll be fighting over it at our house too! I like the adult Latte. Thanks!

  12. says

    What a great concept! This looks like it would be very comfy for curling up in my recliner with a good book! I’d enjoy the Merlot. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  13. Krista says

    I have also scoffed at other “wearable blankets”, but this is different! I love it! If I could choose, I would select the adult style in chocolate! How awesome! I need one of these!!! Thanks!

    I like the Adult Latte,it would make a great gift for my Mom;currently, she carries a space heater to what ever room she plans to occupy.

  15. Cindi says

    Two of our sons actually argue over our one and only blanket with arms!
    They both enjoy wearing it while watching television, doing homework,
    etc……The adult size in the Latte would be wonderful to have!
    Many thanks…..Cindi

    These are so cute! I actually first saw these in a magazine, I heard that their Joyful Nuddle proceeds go to help stop domestic abuse against women! This is amazing, I love that the company wants to help give back to the community, it makes me feel more compelled to purchase from this brand. I wish more companies would take their lead! I love your photo you posted, looks so cozy :) I’d LOVE to win one of these Nuddles. I like the Adult size Nuddle in Latte or Cream. Thanks so much!
