Today's post is a short review of a recent purchase of mine. I am writing this review because I love this product and am very happy I bought it not any other reason.
Now I bought this back in November but it was delayed getting here because of the floods in the Lower Mainland of BC. They arrived the second week of December luckily before Christmas because I bought one not just for myself but for my mom and sister for Christmas. Which was another reason I could not write anything before now because I only had mine out in my room otherwise it would have ruined the surprise for my mom and sister. But here is a short review with a few photos.
What is an Oodie?
This is the Canadian website here: Oodie Canada
- The Oodie is a super soft ONE SIZE FITS MOST hooded blanket. It is based on a 6XL hoodie.
- With soft flannel fleece on the outside and warm sherpa fleece on the inside, you're going to feel like you're hugging a sheep. Plus, it's also 100% cruelty-free.
- Machine washable and no fuss. Just toss it in the washing machine and that’s it!
- Your perfect companion to virtually anywhere: summer camping, evening naps on the couch, hanging out with friends, cuddling with your pet, and so much more… From Oodie website.
So first things first my Harry Potter Slytherin Oodie is a limited edition version which has since been sold out.
Now you may be thinking that cost on these is ridiculous but in all honesty I don't think that the price is bad for what you are getting. Yes the limited edition ones are a little more expensive but you are paying the license fee which is understandable. I bought my mom and sister's oddies in a package deal of 2 Oodies and they have package deals all the way up to 6 Oodies.
I have had my eye on one of these for almost a year but didn't want to spend the money but after a lot of thought and waiting. I decided to take the plunge and just purchase it because I read the online reviews and really thought I would love this. At the same time it was getting closer to Christmas and I had no idea what to get my mom and sister so they got one as well.
Some things that I absolutely love about the Oodie are that the wrists have elastic so you don't feel like your hands are disappearing into the sleeve all the time. I also love that it has a hood and a front pouch pocket. The soft fleece inside makes it so comfy to snuggle up in when enjoying a good book.
I still inevitably use a blanket as well to cover my legs but most of the time I am warm enough to just use the Oodie. It's so nice to be able to move around without a blanket falling off and getting blasted with cooler air. This is also amazing for camping. Those cold nights by the campfire just got snugglier.
If you are on the fence about buying one of these amazing wearable blankets keep an eye on the website they always some amazing deal. However if you are wanting a limited edition one, don't wait they sell out fast.
