    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Throwboy to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a pillow from the Iconic Pillow Collection, which features plush, pillow versions of classic Apple products.

    The Iconic Pillow Collection offers up five pillows that mimic the Apple II, released in 1977; the first Macintosh, released in 1984; the iMac G3, which was released in 1998; the iPod, released in 2001; and the iPhone, released in 2007.


    Throwboy started out offering the Iconic Pillow Collection on Kickstarter, but now all of the pillows are available individually on the Throwboy website for $39.99.


    All of the pillows have been carefully embroidered with details that ensure they look like their hardware counterparts. We have a review coming soon, but I can confirm that the stitching is on point and the quality is excellent.


    The design details include a click wheel on the iPod along with ports at the bottom, a rainbow logo on the 1984 pillow (not an Apple logo because of trademark issues) and a floppy disk drive, speakers and disk drive for the iMac G3, a Home button and speaker for the iPhone, and a full keyboard and embroidered display for the Apple II.


    Each pillow also uses the correct fabric colors for each machine. The Apple II and the Macintosh are a light beige color, while the iMac G3 is in white and aqua. The iPod is white with a gray click wheel, and the iPhone is silver and black like the original model.


    Size wise, these are ideal for throw pillows for a couch or chair, making them a perfect decoration for Apple fans. Each pillow is soft, squishy, and comfortable, both to hold and hug and to lean against. The Mac versions of the pillows are larger than the iPod and the iPhone, though all work well as an alternative to a standard throw pillow on a couch.


    We have 10 of the Iconic Pillows to give away to MacRumors readers, and each winner will be able to pick their favorite pillow.

    I jumped in on this Kickstarter and I’m happy with my iMac G3 pillow. It even has a tag loop located where the carry handle on the iMac was so you can pick it up!

    I just realized the 1998 Pillow lacks the slot-loading drive that was such a contentious issue between Jobs and the hardware team. This is the one thing I can say for certainty that Steve never would've allowed.

    I just bought mine. Got it 10% off too. Now everyone in the family wants one. I remember the day the iMac came out and I brought one home with me. Make Apple Great Again!

    omigosh the one from 1984! I remember I was a senior in high school and it was a big thing as the school got one for their computer class. And the 2001 iPod? Had that up until a month ago, gave it to my daughter's boyfriend who happily put all his music on it and it still works great... and a new iPod is on the way too... :)
