Throwboy gives fans something to snuggle with new YouTube pillow line.

Have you hugged a YouTuber today?

For fans, that may be an impossible task, but one pillow company is helping along the process with a new line of pillows inspired by YouTube stars. It’s starting with Joey Graceffa. (link in bio)

Unfortunately (or fortunately) the pillows are not the Japanese dakimakura body pillows, or love pillows, emblazoned with a full-body image of Graceffa. Instead it’s an adorable plush pillow in the shape of a wolf, a homage to Graceffa’s dog. For his 5.1 million subscribers these aren’t the first Graceffa-themed pillows fans can buy, but the first officially licensed and endorsed by the YouTuber.

The company also makes emoji-themed pillows, and a YouTube pillow in the shape of the all-important subscribe button.

“Since the early days of Throwboy, our brand was welcomed into the YouTube community,” said Throwboy Founder and CEO Roberto Hoyos in a press release. “We are thrilled to be teaming up with top creators on something only Throwboy can offer.”

Graceffa’s $24.99 pillow is available for pre-order, with more YouTuber options like Meghan Camarena and Matthew Santoro coming soon.
