Tauntaun sleeping bag keeps your kids safe in the snows of Hoth


The Star Wars fans among you will have gasped with disbelief already just from clicking the link, but the uninitiated will be wondering “wtf?”. In The Empire Strikes Back, Luke is lost in the snows of ice planet Hoth, and is bloody cold, so he chops open a big hairy creature – a Tauntaun – and climbs inside to survive the night.

Now your kid can crawl into the guts of a hairy snow-creature too! Though actually, it doesn’t seem to be available, which means it was probably an April Fools joke. The response seems to have been so great, though, that they’re actually going to try and make the things. Here’s what they say:

“Due to an overwhelming tsunami of requests from YOU THE PEOPLE, we have decided to TRY and bring this to life. We have no clue if the suits at Lucasfilms will grant little ThinkGeek a license, nor do we know how much it would ultimately retail for. But if you are interested in ever owning one of these, click the link below and we’ll try!”

That link is on the product page, which can be found here. Go give it a click. I demand an adult-size version, too.
