Macho gorilla pillow lets you snuggle on its ripped chest for a comfortable sleep

By Koh Ruide, SoraNews24

Whether you swear by the adorable Pikachu tail pillow or even the sucking Kirby plushie cushion, having a good night’s rest depends very much on your choice of pillows.

But for people who prefer a solid, reliable companion who will always offer an arm to rest on, perhaps a different approach in the form of the Shabani Arm Pillow (6,300 yen) would fit their needs better. Made of 100 percent polyester and measuring 45 x 90 x 15 centimeters (17.7 x 35.4 x 5.9 inches), the cushion provides a safe haven to rest.

The notion of snuggling up to a random gorilla my turn some people off, but rest assured that it is modelled after a celebrity lowland gorilla by the name of Shabani, who resides in Higashiyama Zoo in Nagoya.

The Shabani Arm Pillow can be purchased through animal-themed merchandise shop You+More here.

As it’s practically impossible to rest your head in the arms of the real Shabani, this is the closest anyone can get, forgetting about the world’s troubles and just laying in sweet comfort.
