The Metapod Sleeping Bag — Bandai’s ‘I Never Want To Leave’ Available for Pre-Order

The Metapod Sleeping Bag: a way to escape the stresses of life and dream of becoming a Butterfree

Bandai has really captured the mood of adulthood in 2020 with the release of their aptly named I Never Want To Leave Metapod Sleeping Bag.

Zip yourself in, reflect on your existence, then lay comfortably down and ignore the world.

This incredibly plushy sleep sack is designed to look like the Pokémon Metapod, a transitional cocoon between the weak and fragile Caterpie and the strong and free-flying Butterfree. In the original Red and Blue Pokémon games, wild Metapod will not attack and only knows the defensive move “harden.” If any Pokémon were to symbolize the “hunker down and wait for change” mood that this year has brought, it’s Metapod.

While many toys of this nature are made for children, this sleeping bag is specifically sized for adults. It measures in at an impressive 1500mm (59 inches) in length and 970mm (38 inches) in height— plenty of space to fit all your fatigue and insecurities.
