Throwboy, known for its line of pillows designed to look like classic Apple devices, has debuted a new series of throw blankets that are modeled after classic Apple operating systems.

The 80s OS blanket is designed to look like the Classic Mac OS with a menu bar that sports File, Edit, View, and Special options on a gray background, with a floppy disk icon and trash icon.

There's also a 90s version that shifts to a purple background to represent Mac OS 9, and a 2000s version modeled after the popular aqua design introduced in Mac OS X 10.

Each blanket is made from a minky fleece material and measures in at 50 inches by 60 inches, and these new OS blankets join Throwboy's existing blankets that are designed to look like the classic Finder icon and the Classic Macintosh. The OS Throw Blankets can be purchased from the Throwboy website for $46.99.

These do look incredibly athentic, aside form no Dock on the OS X design.

Was there something else you were referring to?
Well, there are a few things missing, especially from the Mac OS 9 model. Like the application switcher. And the OS X model is missing the menu bar items, as well as the dock. They do seem a little empty, relative to my memory of those UIs. The “80s model” seems to be the most spot on. Maybe some more desktop icons would have been good, make it feel less empty.

This may just be enough to avoid litigation

How have these guys not gotten a CND letter from Apple? lol
A number of reasons.

No Apple logo, Apple don't make a similar product, it's just a blanket that emulates a screen dump. Apple probably think that it's great free advertising & just classified as a "fan reproduction" like all the other Apple fanboy crap you can buy on eBay.

It's not like you can pop a disk in the sleeve & turn the pillow power on 😂.

LOL their other products are completely copying the IP, and not just Apple’s.


Anyway –- not that I really care. I am just surprised.
