Snoozan. A shy little sloth, who doesn’t really know how to talk to strangers. But once you befriend her, she can talk your ear off for hours! She loves to watch animated movies with you and her arms are always open for a little hug. Snoozan is made to order, and you can get her from Etsy
For Christmas yesterday my Grandma (completely of her own accord) got me this Monster High doll with a little “voodoo” sloth called Needles! Now, I’m a little bit old for dolls, but in this case I can make an exception. (Never too old for stuffed sloths though.)
Now, where to put it…
It’s Christmas Eve. I’ve spent the day making salads, cakes, trifles, and now I’m in my sloth Christmas sweater and getting ready to go see family for dinner. It’s been a whirlwind couple of days, full of light-looking, finishing off work for the year and having a big lunch with my boss, and getting ready for tomorrow.
Sometimes you need to take a time-out to remember what it’s all about.
I’ll leave you with a couple pictures of my sloth tree this year, complete with 18 sloths, and topped with Napolean. Only one more sleep until Father Slothmas comes!
Xena is a little bit unpredictable. She can be quiet one minute and full of beans the next! But you can’t help but love her. If you like the look of this little sloth, grab it from Amazon.
The name Xena comes from the word “Xenarthra“, the superorder of placental mammals which includes tree sloths as well as their cousins armadillos and anteaters. It means “strange joints”, as the vertebral joints of these animals have extra articulations and are unlike any other mammal (xenarthry).
I know, I know. This sloth is actually called Belt from The Croods. But, well, I like to personalise my sloths with their own unique natures.
It’s December! And that means it’s time to get onto your Chrissy shopping if you haven’t yet. Last year I posted the Ultimate Sloth Gift Guide, but each year more weird and wonderful sloth-related products and experiences seem to come into existence, so here’s my top-ten pick for 2014.

Get the real deal through the World Wildlife Fund. You won’t get to take a sloth home, but you will be contributing to the conservation and maintenance of sloths everywhere, so that they can be around to enjoy for generations to come.
The boy was ordering things on Amazon last night, and found this little hanging sloth for me:I told him it’s okay, for the time being I have enough sloths (whilst secretly thinking, NEVER!!!). But he talked me into it! I can’t believe how much he encourages my love of sloths.
