Ugly Snuglies Reviews
Plush pets are big business, and with Ugly Snuglies we have a product which attempts to encompass a number of features typically coveted by consumers of this type of toy. With 6 silly designs touted as “so ugly, they’re cute” we see that each includes a special feature. These range from a radio to backpack to coin bank (see above). Thus, the choice is made that much more difficult for kids who may want a specific feature and a particular animal.
Ugly Snuglies are probably larger than the average As Seen on TV plush pet, which could be a pro or con depending on the parent. The variety of features seems to encompass features from other plush pets which have advertised over the years into a single line of products.
Although the cost of $29-$37 seems on the high side, keep in mind that these are somewhat oversized, which can at least somewhat offset the sticker shock.
There are a seemingly infinite number of plush toys for kids, including a rather long line of those in the As Seen on TV category. Recent competitors would be Bright Eyes Pets (review) and Stuffies (review).
Although Ugly Snuglies seems to be in limited marketing as of this writing, if it does become available in stores, that would be the ideal place to browse and choose which is right for you. For those who can’t wait, we’re sure that – price aside – most consumers will be pleased with Ugly Snuglies.
