Now There’s A Giant Dog Bed Made Just For Humans
If you’ve ever dreamed of snuggling next to your furry canine friend in their bed that looks so comfy…well, dream no more. Now, thanks to two university students from Vancouver, you can sleep in your very own human-sized dog bed. The cozy contraption is called the Plufl, and it’s literally a giant dog bed for humans. And while most dogs have a habit of invading their owner’s beds, now puzzled puppies will wonder what you’re doing in theirs.
Noah Silverman and Yuki Kinoshita, the co-founders of Plufl, came up with the idea of creating a giant dog bed for humans after seeing their friend’s Great Dane napping in his own huge, custom-made dog bed. . And that experience got them thinking, “Why should dogs have fun?” But the Plufl is designed to be much more than a human-sized dog bed. As self-proclaimed “passionate nappers,” Silverman and Kinoshita wanted their invention to take napping to the next level.
“The Plufl is a premium nap bed designed to provide the optimal nap experience,” they say in the product description. “It’s created to maximize comfort and promote a sense of security, providing relief for those suffering from ADHD, stress, and anxiety-related issues.”
And the benefits for the Plufl don’t stop there. In fact, a good nap has many positive side effects. And even if it’s not a need For healthy adults to take naps, research shows that even a 20-30 minute nap can improve memory recall and overall cognition, as well as boost performance and alertness.
With its thick pillow border, orthopedic memory foam mattress and luxurious faux fur upholstery, there’s no doubt the Plufl will have you asleep in no time. And its oval shape naturally rocks you into a comfortable sleeping position. Plus, you won’t have to worry about messes or spills (aka excessive drool) because its removable cover is antimicrobial and machine washable.
While it might sound like a novel idea, people are clearly excited to own their own giant dog bed as the Plufl quickly surpassed its $25,000 Kickstarter goal. In the end, the project raised a total of $290,657 from nearly 800 backers. And although the Kickstarter campaign has already ended, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a Plufl in your future.
Follow the company on social media or join its mailing list to find out when the fluffy nap oasis will finally launch to the public. Until then, try not to steal your dog’s bed…and be prepared for him to take back your Plufl when he finally arrives.
