Nintendo, well known for making video games, has also dabbled in other business ventures. Seemingly a company that has its pulse on the sitting habits of the general population, Nintendo has announced the upcoming Boo bean bag chair. Lord knows how one can sit on it since Boos like to go around biting people the second you aren’t looking at them, but I digress.
A comfy dead cushion
Let’s have a look at the chair’s specifications:
- It’s officially licensed because otherwise, this would be illegal.
- ThinkGeek/GameStop exclusive (they’ve been branching out beyond just video games as of late).
- 100% polyester outer, filled with cotton, polyester fiber mix, and polystyrene balls, not the souls of the damned.
- Must be hand washed cold and air dried to avoid damage.
- 38″ wide x 28″ tall x 38″ deep, but it’s a bean bag, so those dimensions are sure to change when you sit on it.
- Recommended for ages 14 and up, because what child wants to deal with the consequences of death so early on?
If you fancy yourself one of these comfy-looking beauties, pre-orders are live on ThinkGeek. The product is due to release late November 2018, for the price of $139.99. Think that’s a little steep? Don’t worry, there’s also a $40.00 heavy item surcharge that will be added once the Boos ship, so the total price is closer to $179.99. Only one per customer, too, so you can’t buy your friends and families ghosts to fart on.
While this Boo bean bag chair is adorable and looks wonderfully relaxing, at close to a $200 price tag, I’m gonna have to pass. What about you darling readers? Does the Boo bean bag look too cute to pass up despite the high price? Let’s have a discussion regarding your opinions below!
