Bed Bath & Beyond presents: The Jedi robe


While browsing through the latest Bed Bath & Beyond circular, I came upon this picture and advertisement for the "Softie Wrap/Throw." The description states, "Throw converts into a robe. Includes snap and zipper closure to keep you warm. Also available in camel." This lady looks like she is wearing her sleeping bag. Either that or its her Jedi halloween costume doubling as a house robe. I don't know why, but I laughed out loud as I pictured myself wearing this sitting in the living room at night sippin some hot cocoa, all zipped up nice and cozy. If any of you have purchased this item, please return it now as you most definitely look stupid wearing it.

Hey, I just purchased one the other day. Are you saying I will look dumb? :)

so when i saw that in their flyer i was totally like, "what on earth?! what nut is going to actually buy that thing?!"

i am so glad to hear that i wasn't the only one to think this item was crazy (and not in a good way).

That is SOOO funny. We are Star Wars fans over here, maybe I will pick up his and hers robes for Ryan and I.;)

Star Wars is right. Where's Yoda??? Looks like something you would wear in a Canadian winter (and I would know!) or something.

I wonder who comes up with things like that? It doesn't even look comfortable, but I must be wrong, I mean, check out the grin on her face. Maybe there's something we're all missing...:)

Let me just say that if I can find that thing at my Bed Bath and Beyond I am purchasing it. And I am not being sarcastic. That looks fantastic. All you warm weather punks can't appreciate a blanket that goes everywhere with you. I don't care how dumb I look...I seriously am on a search for that sucker!!

HAHA,

First of all, I got one of these for Christmas and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! It's the most AMAZING thing.

@zim family - If you haven't gotten one yet, I'm purchasing ANOTHER one, yes all you Jediaholics, ANOTHER one I LOVE it that much, you can find them online. The HSN has the best price of $19.00 + $4.95 shipping. My original one came from Macy's and is $29.00 there.

Second, Who the heck cares how it looks?!!! It's the most comfortable, amazingly soft, warm, cuddly blanket AND the best part is, as a law student who sits at a desk for hour on end studying, wraps around me and DOESN'T fall off, leaves my hands free to type, write, turn pages, etc. AND if I decide I need a snack or drink, I can walk around and NO have to take it off.

In Michigan in the winter I'll take all the warmth I can get NO MATTER THE LOOK or who thinks it looks "DUMB"!!!

Third, whomever invented this particular version deserves an award of some sort and I'd be the firs to give it. Besides, they are sold out everywhere so there must be a lot of DUMB looking people walking around out there Ü
