From the goofy Kickstarter file: The Spoonie

CROWDFUNDING NEWS – For those who want to cuddle but have an unnatural fear of pins and needles comes The Spoonie.  It’s a tube-shaped pillow that you can slip over your arm so it doesn’t fall asleep while you’re cuddling your partner.  According to their Kickstarter page, “Since the dawn of time, this issue has plagued mankind! Big spoons everywhere have fallen victim to a dead arm and nothing kills the mood like losing all feeling in your arm just a few minutes into a cuddle session.”

The pillow is available in five colors  and is available with matching cuddle wear and coozies.   It features a washable cover and apparently can be used for a lot of things, like a lumbar support for your chair, a laptop protector and, well pretty much anything that a small pillow can be used for.  Which begs the question:  Why not just use a small pillow?

Because I can’t get a matching outfit and coozies for my lame little pillow, obvs.

Pledges start at $29 and are available on Kickstarter.

  2. If they made it in camo, men could wear one of these on each arm, under long sleeve shirts to be ready for SBS (spontaneous bilateral spoonation), and to look more buff.

    If they compress at all do they really do their intended job? I’m envisioning a DIY made from PVC sewer pipe with a pillow glued on. New pipe, of course.

      I’m surprised they didn’t include “looking buff” as one of the uses on their page. They seem to have included every single thing they could think of!
