Sweet dreams are made of this.

And you thought they smelled bad on the outside. You've seen The Sleeping Bear, now the geniuses over at ThinkGeek bring you the TaunTaun Sleeping Bag. Too bad it's only an April Fools joke. Or is it? 
Technically it was, and a very good one at that. "This high-quality sleeping bag looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, internal intestines and glowing lightsaber zipper pull." But with something as amazing as this, geeks would not let it go.
ATTN Tauntaun Fanatics! 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!
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?! DO IT NOW! 

Check out the pretend, hopefully-soon-to-be-real product features:
  • Classic Star Wars sleeping bag simulates the warmth of a Tauntaun carcass
  • Built-in embroidered Tauntaun head pillow
  • Glowing Lightsaber zipper pull
  • Great for playing pretend "Save Luke from the Wampa" games
  • Teach your children about the best Star Wars movie ever
  • Fully Licensed Lucasfilm™ Collectable
  • Fits children (and small adults)
  • 100% Polyester construction, Machine washable
  • Exterior Dimensions - 32" x 60"
I could probably fit the "small adults" size but I hope they make it in a larger size also so the big kids can enjoy it too.

Dude...they said if it happens, it'll be available in two sizes: kids AND adults.

I saw this yesterday and I totally want one!

Yeah, I gotta say that if they make this, I will buy three of them. One for me, one for Brandon and another for my son who hasn't been born yet!!

When Brandon turns 7, I am going to show him the first Star Wars movie. I don't mean episode 1, Phantom Menace. I mean the original Star Wars that came out in 1977. I was 7 years old myself.

I want my son to see it through the same kind of eyes I did.

See, I couldn't wait until my son got to 7. He saw what he calls "the rocket ship movie" at 2.
