MEme Monday-As Seen On TV




SupahMommy and MommyBrain have smoething great fopr this week's All About MEme Monday. 
 
Everybody's seen them, you know, those products on late night that you can't live without?  The things that make life easier, faster, cleaner, more delicious, more nurtitious, or just more?

I will admit that I have not bought any of them from TV.  We like to laugh at the spokes people--Vince of Shamwow and Slapchop fame to name one.  I will say the worst of these commercials I ever saw was Vince's Slapchop pitch done to a rap.  Absolutely aweful.  So bad it was almost funny-almost.

My in-laws have gotten on the Snuggie bandwagon.  I saw some at their house before Christmas and Turbo proudly showed us the one he uses when he is there.  I warned Nick that one or possibly both of us would recieve one for Christmas. 

Nick was the lucky winner. 

It was leopard print. 

Turbo picked it out. 

Nick has used it exactly once. 

After all it came from Turbo. 


My mom keeps advocating for the Brownie pan that precuts the brownies before you cook them.  SHe thinks it would be a great present for my father-in-law.  He makes great brownies, but I'm not sure how the pan would go over. 

The only other As  Seen on TV product I have ever used was a hair do-hickey that would turn you pony tail over on itself and give it a great twisty effect.  This was back in the 90's ladies.  The end result looked something like this:

You accomplished this look wiht the help of a green loopy thing that went around the hair and then you tucked the end of it back through the ponytail and than pulled the heck out of your hair.  If you got it even it looked nice but I fortn got it off center and it always looked strange. 

That was my one experience with As Seen on TV.    I get tempted every now and then but I resist--mostly because if it's a decent product it will show up on Walmarts shelves and then I don't have to pay shipping.

I always thought that hair product was funny, because you good do the same thing with your hands, or at least we did.

My Mom bought the two older boys their own snuggies when they first showed up on tv almost two years ago. When it is below zero out, they wear them around the house like oversized robes. I don't get it. If I am that chilled I'll throw on a sweatshirt.

Stopping by from MEme Monday.

If I buy any of them, I do wait for it to come to Wal-Mart - why pay shipping!

I don't get the snuggie rage - it's a blanket, people!

And, I used to wear my hair like that! I did it with my hand though.

The Topsy Turvy!! Almost as cool as the "Tony Pony" - you know...the fake hair pony tail addition. Awesome!! I ♥ my Snuggie and my Perfect Brownie Pan!!

Kirsten said...

I think I had that hair thing. How funny! I had forgotten about that!!! The only things we have are the Shark Sweeper, all though ti has been retired for the swivel sweeper and the Topsy Turvy Tomato planter. The later of which I do not really like!

Thank you for stopping by my blog!

I used to do the Topsy tail all the time when I was younger! I thought it was the coolest thing out there lol.

I remember the pony tail thing... A couple times using it and I realized that I could get the same effect using my hands, LOL.

As for the snuggie... I think that thing has just been blown out of proportion. A blanket with sleeves... But the person who invented it is laughing all the way to the bank, LOL!

My mom bought one of those ponytail things and I remember trying it and getting it stuck in my hair...good times

Kat said...

OH I had the topsy turvy thingy a long time ago! I loved it. I also have those combs with the elastic bands between them so they can go and either pull your hair back or make a pony tail or whatever..yeah, not a good idea. They DO give you a facelift, however...

lol at the Snuggie. I gave one to my Step Dad for Xmas except it was a rip of brand, the Slanket, LMAO! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Ok, I bought the "Perfect Brownie" pan. I love it. I'd marry it, if my religion allowed multiple partners. I now make brownies far more often than I should. Mmmm. Maybe I'll make some for PB when he gets home tonight (sometime after midnight!)
