Introducing the Dreamie -- It's like a Snuggie that you sleep in

Say hello to the spawn of Snuggie: The Dreamie. This person-pocket sleeping bag is the latest branch in a family tree of products that cost virtually nothing to make and depend heavily on adjectives and money-back guarantees to sell.

The Dreamie is essentially what we used to call a sleep sack when we spent nights in youth hostels. Take two small sheets, sew the sides and bottom together, fold over the top of one sheet a pillow's length and sew it on both side to form a pocket, and you have a Dreamie. The unspecified fabric is described as silky, which I'd guess is ad-speak for polyester. (There's also the option to upgrade to fleece.)
The finished product, in a "free Dreamie carrying case" (a bag) sells for $19.99, plus $6.99 shipping and handling. But wait, there's more; the company will double the order for an additional shipping and handling fee of $6.99. It comes in white, red, and brown ( in ad-speak, natural ivory, rich espresso and ruby red.)

The Dreamie ad targets couch sleepers, a population that must be so money-unsavvy that they end up living on some poor schmuck's couch because they blew all their money on as-seen-on-TV items such as the Dreamie.

If ever there was an item you could make for yourself, a Dreamie is it. Five minutes, a couple of sheets, a tube of seam glue and you're set. Now all you need is a friend's couch.
