Huge T-Rex Bean Bag
Available From: Topatoco
Of all the awesome stuff in this year's ComicsAlliance Holiday Gift Guide, this is the only one I've hesitated on including. Not because it's not awesome -- it's a ginormous dinosaur bean bag that you can use as a pillow!
-- but because as of this writing, there are only 43 left in stock, and I'm not sure I want to tell other people about it before I decide to get my own.
The bean bag, pictured above with a Tom Waits CD (not included) for scale, is of course based on the starring character of Ryan North's Dinosaur Comics
. In bean bag form, however, he's a little more rotund, but that round body and those even-tinier-than-normal-for-a-T-Rex arms just make him even more adorable.
Of course, $140 is a little hefty to spend on a bean bag, but let's be honest here: If your 14 year-old selves knew that you had an option to buy a bright green Tyrannosaurus Rex bean bag that was suggested for use as a pillow and you didn't
, they would be so disappointed in you. Don't disappoint your past self, people.
If that logic doesn't sway you, then keep in mind that there's a similar option in a smaller, more affordable size:
The Giant T-Rex Squishable
(the medium sized one in the picture above) sells for $39, and the Wee Rex
(the smallest one) is a mere $19.
Keep in mind that the Topatoco's deadline for getting your order shipped by Christmas at their regular rate is tomorrow
, so if you want one of these bad boys, you'll need to order today. And hurry it up -- I'm not going to be able to talk myself out of one of these for long!
