This Bizarre Head Pillow is All the Rage on Taobao

Hot on Taobao is a monthly segment where we feature a product from Taobao our editors think is cool.

We get it. You want some peace and quiet every now and then to completely zone out and drift off to sleep. Luckily for you, Taobao has a super-hot item that can aid in this noble naptime quest: the lazy alien head pillow. 

Much like you’d put on your winter beanie, this head cushion slips right over your face, encapsulating your noggin in a soft cushion while leaving your nose and mouth free to breathe. 

Ideal for those afternoon office naps next to your co-worker who sleeps with the light on (looking at you, Karen), this pillow will have you snoozing up a storm. You can also take it on your next plane or train trip, although you’ll be pretty vulnerable to anyone sizing up your personal items while your eyes are on ‘pillow nine.’

One thing to note: Expect your hair to be a mess after throwing on this thick head sock. The head pillow’s product listing includes the name of Chinese idol Chen Xuedong, a movie star known to have some funky hairdos.

The reaction online has been a mixed bag, with some loving the head pillow’s comfortable material while others can’t get past the look. “The product is good, but when I’m wearing it, I can’t help but feel a little shameful,” commented one user. 


The Lazy Alien Head Pillow is available on Taobao for RMB39 by searching 陈学冬午休 懒人外星人睡觉枕头 (Chen Xuedong wuxiu lanren waixingren shuijiao zhentou).
