Star Wars Tauntaun Sleeping Bag (April Fools Day Gadget)


Star War fans would remember how the Jedi used to seek warmth in the carcass of Tauntaun, when they could not survive the cold and freezing temperatures of the planet Hoth. In order to recreate the entire situation again, suited to planet earth, guys at ThinkGeek have created the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag…unfortunately, it’s an April Fool’s Day Gadget.

Update: What was once just a joke became a reality with the real Tauntaun Sleeping Bag.

As presented, it would make a great gift for Star Wars fans…see what it is all about:

The sleeping bag simulates a Tauntaun carcass’ luxurious but stinking warmth and even comes with a built-in embroidered Tauntaun head pillow. The zippers glow futuristically and you could play “Save Luke from the Wampa” with all the tiny tots in the house. The Tauntaun Sleeping Bag is the best way to let your children know about the intricacies of the Star Wars tales and how it affected you as a youngster. The sleeping bag fits children and child-sized adults.


Made of 100% polyester, you can rest assured that you could keep your children safe and warm throughout the night while you narrate them all the adventures of the Jedi. As a bonus, you even get the fully licensed Lucasfilm collectables. At $99.99 at, these are worth every penny and could be bought as an addition to your present sleeping bag. If you need more choices, you could try the Full Body Sleeping Bag which adults can use as well, and the Sleeping Bag Bear Suit for some shock effect.
