UglySnuglies: Bizarre Bear and Krazy Kitty Review and Giveaway
When I was a child I was always reminded it was “what was on the inside that counts”. I took this lesson and applied it to friends, boyfriends and really everybody I encounter in my adult life. I believe that a person is defined not by their outer shell but what is in their heart and soul is what is important. I believe this to be true and think that it is a message that is getting lost in this beauty conscious world we are living in. There is more importance on filters, injections and basic photo editing then what somebody thinks or feels.
I think that this message needs to be taught at a young level, and while we have all these conveniences of modern photography, I am not sure they should be used to the extent they are outside of professional photography studio. The message of what is on the inside is not as clear as it was when I was growing up.
I believe in this message, so when an offer came across my email to review the UglySnuglies, I was looking forward to learning more about them. UglySnuglies are unique stuffed animals that teach the lesson that “it is what is on the inside that is important”.
The first UglySnuglie that came out of the box was Bizarre Bear. The first thing I noticed about this bear was his eyes, I loved the oddness of his eyes. This Bizarre Bear comes with 5 pockets located on the back of his head, right arm, middle of his back, left leg and center of his bottom. These are ample zippered pockets that range in size and can hold anything from a box of crayons, to small trinkets. I would have loved to have all of these hidden spots on a cuddly bear growing up. I have always loved teddy bears and this guy is no exception, and will be a wonderful bedroom addition!
The second UglySnuglie that came out of the box was Krazy Kitty. Anybody who knows me in my personal life knows I love, not only my cats, but cats in general. This Krazy Kitty sits with his tongue out looking at you with silly eyes. The unique thing about this cat is that he has a light at the end of his tail. The light wraps around making it easy to use as a pillow as well as being able to use the light. I used Krazy Kitty the other night to do puzzles and was surprised at the amount of light that his tail gives off. Included in the body is a battery pack that takes 3 AAA batteries, making for easy replacement when needed.
If I have any negative to say about the UglySnuglies is that they shed, a lot! I would imagine giving them a once over with a lint roller would solve this problem. The animals are large and easy to hold and cuddle, perfect for younger kids to carry around and enjoy!
UglySnuglies are pets with a purpose and are available in the following:
- Pouty Pig – includes a bank inside
- Krazy Kitty – includes a hidden light in his tail
- Bizarre Bear – includes 5 secret zipper pockets
- Unique Unicorn – includes an alarm clock
- Rowdy Rabbit – includes a radio inside
- Porky Panda – includes a hidden blanket inside
I truly wish that more toys sent a positive message to the younger generation, who are the worlds next leaders and business tycoons. The message that just because something is ugly does not make it not without merit is something every younger person should learn. I plan to purchase a couple of these for our younger family member, showing them also that ugly is not as ugly as they may think.
These would make a perfect gift for not only the holiday, but birthdays and special occasions – they are so ugly, they’re cute and prove YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE BEAUTIFUL TO BE LOVED!
