This Pig Foot Pillow on Taobao is the Ultimate Snuggle Companion

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

Remember snuggies? The wearable blanket received loads of attention in 2008 in the form of both praise and ridicule.

But let’s be honest, as long as you catch some good zzz's, you likely won’t care what you’re wearing or using to snooze into those lucid dreams.

This month’s Hot on Taobao product, the ‘pig foot long pillow,’ is sure to give you the sleep you deserve.

For starters, you would not believe how comfortable it is to lay your head on this ‘juicy’ pillow. One woman who recently purchased the delightfully tacky cushion commented, “hugging this big pig foot pillow is more comfortable than hugging my husband.” While there’s reason for concern over that particular woman’s marital relationship, many others are also raving about the meaty sack of cotton. 

This boomerang-shaped pillow ranges in sizes from the playful 60 centimeters (RMB78), to the mid-ranged 80 centimeters (RMB104), to the husband-replacer at 110 centimeters (RMB218).

We at That’s felt compelled to join this bizarre pillow trend and snatched up one of these bad boys, purchasing the 80-centimeter cushion, which came with a free 30-centimeter travel-sized pig foot (oh yes, it’ll make for the perfect neck pillow on your flight home). At first, some of our colleagues were wary about the oversized, cushioned swine foot, but they came around and have since rendered the pillow a popular purchase.

So, if you’re looking for a fun gag gift for your friend’s upcoming birthday or just want to cozy up with a nice hunk of meat, this pig foot will do the trick.

The pig foot long pillow can be purchased for RMB78-218 on Taobao.
