Tauntaun Sleeping Bag

You all know the scene – an ailing, freezing Luke Skywalker is placed into the belly of a deceased Tauntaun by Han Solo to save the young Jedi from certain death in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Han’s quick thinking to place our hero into the literal belly of a beast to enhance his chances for survival allows Luke to survival his harrowing ordeal on Hoth.

Now you, too, can experience all of the comfort and life-saving warmth of a Hoth-dwelling animal’s innards with your own Tauntaun Sleeping Bag from ThinkGeek!

Hopefully you’ll never find yourself in a Hoth-like atmosphere, with temperatures plunging into the 80-below-zero range, but for chilly nights camping, why not sleep in the warm intestines of one of Hoth’s native species? Tauntauns are able to withstand Hoth’s snowy, ice-packed landscape, so your outdoor surroundings should be no match for the wooly creature. Plus, your Tauntaun will have a plush head that you can lay on. Luke had no such luck.

This officially licensed LucasFilm product is guaranteed to give your little Jedis some extra comfort and fun on the next family camping trip – but hopefully you don’t run into any Wampas wherever that trip takes you.

The Tauntaun Sleeping Bag measures a roomy 33″ x 67″ (not including the head pillow or legs), perfect for children ages 3-and-up. The bag is spacious enough to fit three small children, or even one full-grown adult, if you so please.

Made of 100% polyester, this Tauntaun is machine washable, and as such, is probably just a little bit cleaner and better-smelling than the mammalian refuge that young Skywalker used to warm up. Actually, we’ll go with definitely.

There are also several fun, novelty touches on the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, such as printed “intestines” on the inner lining of the bag, and a zipper featuring a blue lightsaber – in case you forgot how Han Solo opened up the creature to save Luke’s life. You can bundle your kids up for the night by opening up this Tauntaun’s insides in a similar manner!

We imagine you will play out this scenario every time your child goes to bed:

Hopefully, your kids are already Star Wars fans, but if they’re not familiar with The Empire Strikes Back, they will appreciate the film that much more after using this sleeping bag! It’s a guaranteed way to make their connection to Star Wars a little more real and personal. Your kids will find sleeping in a Tauntaun much more exciting once they see how the scene plays out in the iconic movie.

If you want your children to follow in the steps of Luke Skywalker (minus the whole killing their father part) and grow up to be galactic heroes, why not take the step of keeping them warm in their own Tauntaun belly?

You should definitely check out the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag here for what is guaranteed to be a fun, geeky gift. It will keep the force strong in your children for years to come!
