Felt him up

Fanboys! Now you too can take Steve Jobs to bed.

US pillow maker Throwboys has come up with a cuddly felt figure of the former Apple CEO clad in black turtleneck, blue jeans, grey trainers and rimless spectacles (removable).

The plaything is here to "celebrate the life of this inspiring person whose raving passion for all things tech kept us craving innovation and lusting after his creativity". It says here.

To avoid legal entanglements, the J word - no, not 'Jagwire' - isn't being used.

And it doesn't much look like the man, either, we'd say. Too plump, for starters.

"That's Salman Rushdie, that is," one Vulture suggested.

Who do you think the toy looks like?

Whatever, the 15in doll can be yours for $60 a pop, but ten per cent of the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society charity. But hurry, only 1200 are being made. More details here.

Let's hope it proves longer lasting than the most recent Jobs miniature. ®
