Tusken the Tauntaun Ball Pit from Hoth Toys LLC
On the outside, Tusken is a big loveable galoot: soft and squishy with textured scales, crinkly spikes, a soft plush head and rattle tail. But inside, he has 60 colorful balmy belly balls to warm your child on cold winter nights. Plus, use Tusken during the day to sooth tantrums away. Just slice Tusken’s belly open with a light saber or laser scalpel and your toddler will enjoy total body relaxation with the natural benefits of heat therapy.
Remember in The Empire Strikes Back when Han Solo sliced open the belly of a tauntaun and placed injured Luke Skywalker inside so he survived the freezing ice storm on planet Hoth?
I did when I saw the I am the Boss ball pit made by K’s Kids while flipping through a Sensational Beginnings catalog. Yeah, sorry, the toy isn’t really named after a tauntaun. It would be a shame if that baby model’s name isn’t Luke though.
I love the toy’s real name. It’s truth in advertising. Babies are the boss in every family.
Here is a bonus Han Solo quote for parents changing diapers:
"And I thought they smelled bad…on the outside."
