Back in the seventies, a young fan could immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe 24 hours a day. Playing with toys, studying with Star Wars school supplies, eating from Star Wars dishes, and even sleeping in Star Wars bedding. And if they were invited to a sleepover, what better way to show their fandom than by sleeping in a Star Wars sleeping bag?

There were about a dozen designs of slumber bags made in the vintage era in both the US and abroad. From the first Star Wars, to Empire and Jedi, a kid had many character schemes to choose from.
