The Cozen, sold at Flippy is a convertible throw blanket and pillow in one, but it's a bit different than you might think.
Created by inventor Bill Dieter, who had "daddy duty" and didn't want to deal with cold feet or cleaning up while sleeping on the couch, you tuck your feet into this pillow and pull, and you're covered with a blanket. It served the purpose of keeping him warm, including his wayward feet, and because you tuck it all in, of not having to make a bed or clean up where he was sleeping. Plus, it can be stored wherever you want, including the couch, because when it's not being used, it turns into a throw pillow.
One thing I love about this invention is that it's easy to put back together! I've had convertible inventions in my life that were oh so cool, until it was time to put them away. I have a particular thing in mind, a portable play tent that looked like a Volkswagen Van but was so so so so so hard to take down, that once I got it down, I never wanted to put it back up, no matter how cute it was (and it was cute). Not the case with this pillow. The blanket portion, which feels kind of like a lightweight sleeping bag, tucks in easily and quickly. Simply stuff and fluff and you are on your way in a matter of seconds.
The pillow measures 16" across and 2.75" wide, and has a soft cover. The inside (blanket) is large enough to cozy down and get warm in, whether you're sitting or stretched out. For us, we'll be taking it on our road trip. My son likes to sleep if the car ride is too long. The Cozen will be so easy to bring along. It will eliminate the need for a pillow and blanket to be in the backseat, and instead he can have a cozy pillow that he can put his arm or head on when he's just riding (and still awake), and a blankie for when he's sleeping. I know he's going to use this and be glad to have it when we take our little summer trip.
This convertible pillow/blanket is also machine washable, which is always important to me. This is a cool invention. I am happy to own it and can think of many different ways it will come in handy.. It comes in three colors and you can buy one for yourself HERE.
