Forget your troubles with a short nap on Gengar’s tongue

Overwhelmed by life? Shove your head in a Gengar.

Pokémon has an illustrious history of beautifully bizarre merch including a human-sized Metapod sleeping bag or a Ditto chair, but this giant Gengar plushie might be the best yet. It’s cute, sure, but it’s also incredibly practical. Just roll out its roughly 170cm-long tongue and you’ve got yourself a compact futon for sleeping on. There’s even a cozy little space in its open mouth for your head.

But this Gengar isn’t just a novelty mattress replacement. No, it’s capable of so much more. Tired of reality? Shove your head in the Gengar’s mouth. Need an impromptu blanket? Use the Gengar’s tongue. When you’ve got a giant Gengar with a long-ass tongue, the sky’s the limit.

Be not afraid.

The title of the product listing literally translates to “Gengar who absolutely wants to be licked.”

Unfortunately, despite its high price of 25,950 yen (around $250) and a ship date that’s still months away in June 2021, Pokéshopper.com reports that pre-orders for the Gengar cushion sold out in less than two hours.
