7 Photos of a Siberian Husky vs. a Giant Tribble

The Sumo Gigantor is an extraordinary family-size beanbag that can replace a sofa (as it now has in our living room where The Wife claims it every chance she gets!).

When I agreed to sample the Sumo Gigantor, I didn’t realize just what would arrive in a matter of days.

I’d hoped it might suffice as a nice, new beanbag for Maura, our Siberian Husky, and could go in the corner of my office at home.

But when the Gigantor arrived squeezed into a huge box and we emptied it out and put on the fur cover, the majesty of the product revealed itself: the whole family, all three of us, could fit on it together.

Now the Gigantor rests in the living room, having replaced the love seat in our sofa set, which has migrated to the office, kind of finally tying the room together, as The Dude would say.

The Wife has been on a huge Star Trek kick for a while now, thus we have christened the new furniture family member “the Tribble.” And April now monopolizes it with Muara when she’s home. It has become a cozy nest while she works on her master’s thesis.

The #siberianhusky #maura considers The Giant Tribble that has invaded our living room. A review coming soon of #Sumo Gigantor...

#siberianhusky #maura happy with new living room fixture.


It took a little coaxing at first but Maura the Siberian Husky does now like to come up on the Tribble. Here we are together:

I find it to be wonderful during my early mornings. I get up at 4 a.m. and it’s a comfortable spot to read while I do my morning stretching and ease into the work day. (That’s before surrendering once The Wife wakes a few hours later.)

I’ve decided that for future photos of books and other products the gigantor will provide a great backdrop:

We plan to get more gigantors when it comes time to expand the living room in the future. These are superior to sofas; they’re much more versatile for lying, sitting, or snuggling with a Siberian Husky.

The Tribble is huge.

Order your Gigantor here; they come in a variety of colors and covers.

Yeah, but if you shoot it with a phaser, it turns into a whole lot of little tribbles.

The suede cover says it is. I'll have to check on if the fur cover we received is. The material looks like it would go through the washer fine.

So about 10 minutes after reading this piece I was washing dishes, and guess what song was stuck in my head? Yes, I blame you...

Nothin' beats having a fur wrapped around you on a cold day.
Your dog knows the truth.

I hope you don't have any anti-fur friends.

If that's a Tribble, Dave, I think you've been over-feeding it.
