If you do not know what a Tauntaun is, then you have to watch Star Wars II The Empire Strikes Back! Tauntauns were a species of omnivorous reptomammals who were indigenous to the icy planet of Hoth. Tauntauns were commonly used as pack animals during the Rebel Alliance’s stay at Hoth. Tauntauns were also used as patrol mounts when it was learned that the Rebel Alliance’s own vehicles could not cope with the cold very well.
If you are a true blue Star Wars geek, you might want to check out this fun way to take a nap. If you watched The Empire Strikes Back, you know that this beast was used by the Rebel Alliance not only to transport people, but also to warm people. Their insides were taken out and the freezing Jedi knight, Luke Skywalker, was placed inside its belly to allow him to defrost. I am one of those who has seen the original series so many times.
I found this Tauntaun sleeping bag in Think Geek’s Slumber at the Belly of the Beast line. This high-quality sleeping bag looks just like a Tauntaun, complete with saddle, printed internal intestines and a plush 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 snugly inside simulated Tauntaun fur while telling them the amazing tale of The Empire Strikes Back. You can buy this sleeping bag for USD $99.99.
