It's easy to idolise - or even be jealous of - the many star characters in the Super Smash Bros. series; they have some serious skills in combat, they're adored by an incredible army of passionate fans, and they get to experience what it's like to be eaten alive by Kirby before being spat back out like an unwanted olive.

If any of these dream-like scenarios apply to you (but particularly that last one) then this new plushie pillow will no doubt be for you. Measuring 21cm by 23cm, and therefore comfortably housing your entire head, the pillow looks perfect for catching up on some sleep in pretty much any location. Simply pop your Kirby pillow down anywhere you like, and wiggle yourself up into its forever-open mouth. "Anytime, anywhere" indeed.

We quite like the idea of getting several of these for the office, with all staff members taking naps at our desks like in the image above. Of course, Kirby was recently revealed to be the star of the show in the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, seemingly being the only one to avoid the Nintendo character apocalypse - perhaps having one around isn't a bad idea after all?

If you're wanting a Kirby pillow for yourself, you can grab one from the official Premium Bandai store for 9,500 yen (approx. $84 / £65). Delivery is expected to commence next June.

Will you be getting one? Is this one of the best pieces of merchandise ever to be released? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
