For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Throwboy to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of Throwboy's plush pillows, all of which are modeled after classic Apple products and icons and are perfect for Apple fans.

Throwboy's pillows are plush, squeezable versions of Apple products like the first iPhone, Classic Macintosh, iMac G3, first iPod, Finder Icon, Spinning Wheel, and more. Pillows are priced at $30 to $40, and the main Iconic collection features designs modeled after five of the most iconic Apple products to date.

Each Throwboy pillow features intricate embroidery to match the detailing on the Apple product it's modeled after. The 1998 Pillow, for example, looks just like an iMac G3 with bright Bondi Blue fabric and embroidered details that include a CD slot, power button, handle, and more.

The 1984 Pillow designed to look like the Classic Macintosh has a rainbow logo, floppy disk drive, and iconic square shape, while the 1977 Apple II Pillow features embroidered keys, a rainbow logo, and other detailing to make it unmistakable as a plush Apple II.

Throwboy's 2001 Pillow is modeled after the original iPod with click wheel embroidery, while the 2007 Pillow looks just like the 2007 iPhone with a silver body, a home button, and thick black bezels.

There's even a plush version of Apple's classic Finder Icon, and the multi-colored Spinning Wheel pillow is a life size version of the classic Mac icon that we're all familiar with.

Cool pillows. But maybe someone at Macrumors should do a better job cropping that last photo.

Without the proper Apple logo on the first two pillows, it looks cheap. It doesn't do it for me.

I get the legal ramifications...which I'm surprised he's getting away with the happy Mac face pillow.

I think I need that iPod pillow regardless of the giveaway. All the nostalgia!

I bought the Finder pillow. It looks way cooler than any other pillows they've sold so far because it's a complete ripoff, lol. Figure I'll buy it before Apple blocks sales.

One day I'd love to find out what complexity of law prevents US companies from shipping free items internationally, and why such complexities only occur for certain companies, yet others like dbrand have no such complexities other than "live somewhere we can ship to, k?"

They (Understandably) don’t want to put time into checking each countries‘ laws regarding giveaways and competions so it just gets restricted. Some places just take the risk that they won’t fall foul of laws OR allow the winner to fall foul of laws. It can get complicated, for example here in the UK, giveaway and competition laws are different in Northern Ireland to England, Scotland and Wales.

On a similar note there’s also some places you just wouldn’t ship to because there’s a high chance of the package going missing and the winner saying they haven’t recieved it.

Not happening, I’m not going to voluntarily look at Apple ads even while sleeping.
