Do you remember the Star Wars series? Specifically “the Empire strikes back”? Just for a brief, the Tauntauns were non-sentient lizards that lived in the snowy, cold waste-lands of the Planet Hoth. As the Jedi faced the harsh weather conditions of the planet they had to make decisions. And you remember that proverb that says “when the going gets tough, the tough gets going” right? Well Yeah! The lucky Jedi survived the cold terrible nights by slashing open a Tauntaun’s belly and sleeping inside of it to keep warm.
The Star Wars Tauntaun Sleeping Bag is a fully licensed collectible from the star wars collection – it is a sleeping bag built to look like you slept inside the belly of a Tauntaun’s carcass, sliced open using a lightsaber in a bid to keep warm (remember the scene from Empire Strikes? How Han Solo saved Luke Skywalker? Yeah sure, that is it). For a star wars geek, it really feels like sleeping inside a Tauntaun. It comes in handy for backyard camp-outs and slumber parties.
