Our friend "Jad Bean" gives us the scoop on this extremely cool kid's Tauntaun sleeping bag available at ThinkGeek.com.
See the excerpt below:
"In the sub-zero wasteland of the planet Hoth, only the strong survive... and of course those lucky Jedi protected by the thick skin of a Tauntaun. Now after exhaustive movie viewing research and analysis ThinkGeek Labs has isolated the exact synthetic compounds needed to re-create Tauntaun fur. What have we done with this supreme knowledge? Created a Tauntaun sleeping bag of course.
This high-quality sleeping bag looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, internal intestines and glowing lightsaber zipper pull. Now when your kids tell you their favorite Star Wars movie is "Attack of the Clones" you can nestle the wee-ones snug in simulated Tauntaun fur while regaling them with the amazing tale of "Empire Strikes Back"."
UPDATE: So we all know that the post above was in regards to a pretty good April Fools joke, right? Well, due to demand, Think Geek is trying to take the sleeping bag from joke to reality. Click here for an interview at L.A. Weekly with Think Geek's Shane Peterman as he fills us in on the progress
UPDATE #2: Our wishful prayers have been answered! According to this post on ClubJade, the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag will indeed see the light of day and be made available for fans to purchase from ThinkGeek.com!
See the note from the website:
"ATTN Tauntaun Fanatics! We should have the real version of these cool sleeping bags arriving in early November. Initial quantities will be limited, so if you are at all interested in owning a piece of Star Wars history please click the Email me when available link".
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches.

They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
