A few days ago, I came across this video, named My Knitted Boyfriend. It’s tagline – ‘a cushion with a story.’
The product is basically a cushion with a personality. A cushion to kiss or to cuddle, to caress, to hug, and to smile with. The knitted man is always happy and flexible as well. He can have a moustache if you prefer. He can wear glasses, if you prefer glasses. He can sit on your floor, on your couch or at your dinner table. But most of all he likes to lay down next to you in bed, with your head on his chest and his arms wrapped around you.
The product page states: ‘This product means you will never feel alone ever again. With this man you can be sure, he will never leave you.’ I’m not sure how worrying this sounds… but I do like the creativity behind the idea.
So far, two have been ordered! Arthur, knitted on 14.09.2011 has white skin, dark brown hair and black knickers. Steve, knitted on 27.09.2011 has dark brown skin, black hair and beige knickers.
If you would like one, look no further: Get your own Knitted Boyfriend
Would you consider ordering one? Do you think they are a kitsch idea?
