We’re big fans of the Snuggie here at Craziest Gadgets. We love how ridiculously stupid it is and laugh at those foolish enough to pay and actually “wear” a blanket with sleeves. We mock those who opt for the inferior Snuggie alternatives like the Slanket, Snuggler, and Toasty Wrap. Yet somehow a blanket with a pocket for your gadgets doesn’t seem all that bad.
The Blue Travel Set is a fleece blanket and pillow in one. A zippered pouch holds the blanket and becomes the pillow case for the inflatable pillow when the blanket’s removed. The 48″ x 32″ cozy blanket has a pocket for your iPod, cell phone, or Zune.
Not a bad idea because if you’re snuggling up in a blanket you probably want to keep your gadget on the outside for easy use. Without a pocket, you have to balance it on your body somewhere and it will inevitably start slide away when you shift your position and will end up dangling from your ears by the headphone cord. While that’s not the worst thing in the world, a pocket would be handy. Decent. And it doesn’t have sleeves. $28.
