Channel Your Inner Sea Monster With This Cozy Kraken Blanket
ThinkGeek
ThinkGeek

In what has become an annual tradition, another one of ThinkGeek's "fake" April Fool's Day products has become a reality: Get ready to release the Kraken and add this cozy Tentacuddle Blanket to your shopping cart.

Every year, ThinkGeek comes up with a handful of prank products for April Fool's Day, many of which are so awesome that customers really want to buy them. So the company takes the most popular ones and turns them into very real gadgets and garments that you can own. The Tenctacuddle Blanket was one of ThinkGeek's annual April Fool's Day prank items in 2017, but it was too good to stay fictional. So, following this year's April Fool's festivities, ThinkGeek began selling the blankets for real.

This wearable full-body creation is a reaction to those popular and whimsical mermaid blankets (and the popularity of mermaid products as a whole, both on ThinkGeek and the rest of the internet). It's a must-have alternative for those who prefer dark and vicious sea monsters like the Kraken.

The real thing looks a little different than the Tentacuddle Wrap the brand jokingly mocked up back in 2017: Each of the five tentacles is 2 feet long with three suckers and has an opening at the end for you to put your hand or foot through. It's perfect for keeping your whole body warm while lounging on the couch. Made of machine-washable acrylic, it can be yours for $59.99.

To shop other ThinkGeek prank items made real, like the Star Wars Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, head here. Don't forget to ogle this year's April Fool's catalog and vote on which one you want ThinkGeek to make a reality for 2019.
