Rest your head on this “Inhaling Kirby” plush cushion

Reason number 242 that I love my husband – he puts up with my obsession with all things soft, whether it be blankets, pillows or stuffed animals. I wonder how he’ll respond when he comes home from work to discover my head lodged inside a giant plush Kirby.

Premium Bandai recently released the “Inhaling Kirby” plush cushion, an international delight featuring one of Nintendo’s biggest mascots. Now you can stick your head inside Kirby’s mouth and rest your head on his tongue, which isn’t nearly as mentally-scarring as that sounds.

The item’s official website states: “With this, you get to enjoy the fun of “being sucked into”; you can also wear it during breaks for a nap, shielding you form nearby distractions. What’s more, the inside of its mouth is a cushion pad, which provides ample and comfortable support when you rest your head on it.”

The “Inhaling Kirby” measures 38cm X 36cm X 51.5cm in size, or 1.24ft X 1.18ft X 1.68ft. It’s wearable for children and adults, and it’s even safe for small pets to squeeze in and nap!

The soft, laughable buddy is quite pricey, but totally worth your money if you’re a fan of the big, pink ball. Find it on Bandai’s website for $96.99 and on NintendoSoup for $159.99.
