Holiday Gift Guide: The Dinosaur Comics T-Rex Bean Bag
Huge T-Rex Bean Bag
Available From: Topatoco
Of all the awesome stuff in this year’s ComicsAlliance Holiday Gift Guide, this is the only one I’ve hesitated on including. Not because it’s not awesome — it’s a ginormous dinosaur bean bag that you can use as a pillow! — but because as of this writing, there are only 43 left in stock, and I’m not sure I want to tell other people about it before I decide to get my own.The bean bag, pictured above with a Tom Waits CD (not included) for scale, is of course based on the starring character of Ryan North’s Dinosaur Comics. In bean bag form, however, he’s a little more rotund, but that round body and those even-tinier-than-normal-for-a-T-Rex arms just make him even more adorable.

Don’t disappoint your past self, people.

Keep in mind that the Topatoco’s deadline for getting your order shipped by Christmas at their regular rate is tomorrow, so if you want one of these bad boys, you’ll need to order today. And hurry it up — I’m not going to be able to talk myself out of one of these for long!
