New Products From ThinkGeek Include Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, USB Pet Rock


By Evan Ackerman

ThinkGeek has released a bevy of new products today. My favorite of the bunch has to be this Tauntaun sleeping bag, complete with lightsaber zipper pull and toasty warm faux-intestine liner. It’s not as warm as sleeping inside a real freshly dead animal, but I bet it smells a heck of a lot better. You can get this for about $40, but you’ll have to wait for it to be shipped in from the ThinkGeek wearhouse on Hoth. A couple more new products, after the jump.

    THIS BETTER NOT BE AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE. I wants me a Tauntuan sleeping bag!

  • HairyJew

    Sad :( It is. Reposting somebody else's April Fools joke? Sad, sad day, Evan.

    I actually thought it said “tantrum” sleeping bag which I consider a great idea for those little tikes that throw regular fits.

    Just throw em in, zip it up and let em freak out. Guaranteed to tire them into a sound sleep after only an hour of kicking and screaming.

    By the way Hairy, if you wanted something to be believable would you have everyone do their own joke or have one or two jokes circulate around the interweb? Besides, this site is just doing what it does every day, pulling gizmo news from other sources.

    I know. I have no problem with that. I'm just disappointed that I won't get to curly up inside a tauntaun :(. My response was intended to be tongue-in-cheek.

    Damn you, ThinkGeek. If I wanted to look at things I can never have, I'd pick up a Playboy.

  • gadgeteer

    I thought it smelled bad on the outside.

    I'm hoping that ThinkGeek ends up selling the Tauntaun sleeping bag sometime in the future. I recall them finally selling their 1up Mushrooms, which were a previous April Fool's gag.

    There's hope! As Chris points out, last year ThinkGeek came up with a personal soundtrack shirt as an April Fool's gag. It got such a good reception that they ended up producing it, and it seems to me like putting together a tauntaun sleeping bag would be easier than that.
