If you've ever wanted to snuggle with your Apple devices, Throwboy has a new Kickstarter project that may be of interest. The new Iconic Pillow Collection includes a selection of plushy pillows that have been designed to look like Apple products.

The collection includes five pillows meant to mimic the Apple II, released in 1977; the first Macintosh, released in 1984; the iMac G3, which was released in 1998 and also happens to be celebrating its 20th anniversary today; the iPod, released in 2001; and the iPhone, released in 2007.

Each of the five pillows features embroidery and design details to make it look like the product it's designed after. The 1984 pillow, for example, has a rainbow logo (not an Apple logo, for trademark reasons), a floppy disk drive, and vents at the sides.

The 2001 iPod pillow features the iPod's two-toned body, a click wheel, and a screen, while the iPhone includes a Home button, speaker, and the silver and black color scheme from the original device.

According to Throwboy, all of its pillows are made from ultra-soft 100 percent vegan fine grain plush, with careful embroidery, woven and silk screen labels, and a poly fiber filling. Each pillow measures approximately 13 x 5 x 13 inches and weighs just about a pound.

The first backers can get a single Iconic Pillow of their choice for $27, after which prices will go up to $33. Pricing on two pillows starts at $54 for early backers, while all five can be purchased by the first backers for $135.

Specific pricing for each tier is available on the Kickstarter project site, and pricing will vary after early bird rewards run out.

Throwboy plans to begin shipping the first of the pillows out in January 2019. While Kickstarter project shipping dates are often delayed, Throwboy is an established company that's been making quirky pillows for a decade, so it's likely that's a reasonable shipping timeline.

Update: Given the strong interest in the Iconic Pillow Collection, Throwboy has added a new pillow representing the well-known Mac beach ball, aka the spinning wheel of death. It can be purchased for $20 alongside any other Iconic pillow.

Ugh, no thank you.

1) SEWldered poly fiber. Can't even replace this after purchasing without ripping it to bits. And let me guess, that'd void your warranty if you did that.

2) The embroidery is STITCHED IN?! I mean, come on. I remember the days when stitching was upgradable. It probably costs them about 50 cents for the material. Imagine the markup they must be making. I should have the option to buy this myself and do it.

3) Weighs approximately 1lb. Nobody cares about a thinner and lighter pillow! We need proper pillow functionality like we used to have, which you can't get in these Fisher Price plushies.

4) "Limited Edition". Basically, it means we're paying through the nose and they'll just release a better version next year which have ALL the features that this generation should have had.

I think it's time for the CEO to step down and get some fresh blood who understands what PRO pillow users REALLY need. Form over function.

Much more comfortable than snuggling my real Apple ][, that’s for sure.

I feel kind of embarrassed, but I want one for my new office. I'm currently buying stuff for it now but I'm telling myself I really don't need to buy any of these :)

The Bondi Blue iMac looks like the best of the bunch. I might have to buy one of these for my new studio which needs decorating.

Also they better watch out—Apple has a design patent on round rectangles.

Good thing he makes only one color for the iMac pillow. Otherwise I'd have to buy them all...

Jony Ive is going to complain that these pillows are too thick.
