Snuggie Tails Review

The infamous Snuggie brand is back with an offering for kids known as Snuggie Tails. These fleece blankets offer a variety of underwater character designs with one end fully-enclosed like a sleeping bag.

Snuggie Tails can be used as a sleeping bag, blanket, wrap, or as a fun character “costume.” The blankets fit anyone under about 5 feet tall.

Originally, the website showed 9 character designs. As of December 2016 the website now shows only 8, with the alligator design removed, but only four are available to add to cart: shark, rainbow fish, pink mermaid, and blue mermaid. We have currently only seen the pink mermaid and shark sold locally, although this is bound to change over time and vary by location.

The material is soft fleece, which should satisfy the vast majority of users. The commercial states that “the stitching is durable and made to hold up to even the most active kids.” That, however, treads on dangerous advertising ground, as there are bound to be instances where “the most active kids” get the best of Snuggie Tails, prompting parents go online to complain about tears or holes. As with any stitched item, there are limitations, kids should be reminded that it is a blanket and not a toy.

Overall, we find Snuggie Tails to be a worthy offering under the Snuggie brand name, and our product researchers feel that it will garner around a 4-star rating once consumer reviews appear online.

Snuggie Tails are marketed by Allstar Products Group, which currently holds an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Alternatives

Despite using the long-standing Snuggie name, it would appear that Snuggie Tails is a knockoff of, or has borrowed in some way from, Blankie Tails. That brand points out that it is “The original mermaid and shark blankets.” It, too, offers underwater character blankets for kids. That product is highly rated and costs about $37.

The official Blankie Tails website was registered about six months before the Snuggie Tails website.

I bought 2 SnuggieTails as Christmas presents for my 6 yr old grandkids. Both wanted the shark. The only good thing I have to say about them are that they’re really cute. Other than that, they’re crap. Both kids are roughly 4ft tall and weigh about 50 pounds. They unwrapped them and immediately wanted to get in them. They stepped in, pulled it up and the “bottom fins” on both sharks ripped out. The fabric is very thin and frayed so badly, when it ripped, that neither are repairable. Neither child was rough with them. They simply stepped into it… Read more »
