Throwboy Pocket Pillows in two retro Mac shapes

  • Beanbag plush toy is perfect for Apple fans.
  • They come in two styles: 1984 and 1998, based on the larger Throwboy pillows.
  • Pocket-sized Throwboy pillows are available on Kickstarter now.
  • Throwboy is offering a Super Early Bird special at $11.
  • The regular price will be $19.

Throwboy first came to our attention with their full-sized pillows shaped like retro Mac computers and other popular Apple products. I own five of them, or at least I did until my children swiped all but one of them. CEO Hoyos initially just made the pillows for his girlfriend, who loved them so much she posted photos online. The photos went viral, so Hoyos put them on Kickstarter, and after a successful campaign, a business was born. Throwboy's newest endeavor is a miniature-sized version of these popular pillows.

The new Pocket Pillows are crafted from soft vegan fine-grain plush. The bottom half is filled with poly pellets to give the pillow some heft, while the top half is filled with poly fiber stuffing for softness. The details are embroidered on with satin stitching.

Available to reserve on Kickstarter now, the pocket-sized Mac-style pillows are being made in two different styles to start: the original 1984 Mac computer, and the beautiful Bondi blue 1998 Mac. If the campaign is successful, more styles will follow. As with any Kickstarter campaign, the earlier you invest, the better price you'll get, but it's not without risk since not every Kickstarter project goes into production. Throwboy is offering a Super Early Bird special at $11 and an Early Bird at $13, while the regular price will be $19.
