Gengar mouth pillow futon tongue Bandai Pokémon merchandise swallow you whole Japan

The Kirby nap pillow was one of the most popular articles Nintendo Enthusiast has ever seen. So if you enjoyed that, maybe you’ll enjoy this new bizarre Gengar mouth futon with an absolutely enormous tongue to swallow you whole, being sold by Bandai in Japan. Trusting a slight bit of Google Translate, preorders open Jan. 8 and it will ship in June 2021. However, it costs 25,950 yen ($249.58 USD) — so you had better be really passionate about lounging inside of your favorite Ghost-type Pokémon. Either way, this is Pokémon merchandise at its finest.

The Gengar mouth futon: The greatest Pokémon merchandise ever?

The dimensions of Gengar himself are 48cm x 55cm x 53cm, and its tongue is a wild 170 cm. It’s apparently made of polyester, and it’s amusingly targeting ages 15 and up for some reason; maybe children just aren’t ready to handle the Gengar mouth futon. It will be hard to keep them away though, as this thing is as cute as it is extremely bizarre. You might have a bit of a difficult time getting your hands on it though, as, with the pandemic still raging, getting items to ship from Japan can be quite costly — when it is possible at all.

As a funny FYI, using Google Translate on the title of the item yields the name “Gengar who absolutely wants to be licked,” which does not sound accurate — but it was too amusing not to share.

Anyway, I’m going to be busy sharing this Gengar mouth futon with everyone I know, and we hope you will too — but do let us know what you think of it down below and on social media!
