Hand-sewn shark buddy bites into plush world

The next time you have a bad day, don’t worry — a shark Chum Buddy is lurking in the corner of your bed, waiting. Instead of curling up into a ball and complaining about life, you can crawl into Chum Buddy, a huge, plush shark that functions as a cross between a sleeping bag and a pillow. The shark is hand-sewn and contains about 30 pounds of poly-fill. While the idea is cool, the Buddy costs a whopping 200 bucks. Unfortunately it’s a bit too small and impractical to serve as anything other than a novelty item.
