Fluffy Hugging Plush Pokémon up for preorder, perfect to squeeze forever

Fluffy Hugging Plush Pokémon preorder Nintendo merchandise

At the end of the day, all most Pokémon fans wish is that they could snuggle up with their favorite critters and be whisked away to (Kirby’s?) dreamland with them. The Pokémon Company is making that possible with what are being dubbed “Fluffy Hugging Plush Pokémon,” available for preorder out of Japan and each costing about $36. You can preorder Pikachu, Snorlax, Ditto, or (well, actually currently unavailable) Quagsire from Amazon Japan, which are set to start shipping on Dec. 21. Finally, more Nintendo merchandise you can squeeze to death.

Here are the dimensions, in centimeters, of the Fluffy Hugging Plush Pokémon, with a rough height in inches included:

  • Pikachu: 30×28×41 (12 inches)
  • Snorlax: 42×36×16 (16.5 inches)
  • Ditto: 28×37×22 (11 inches)
  • Quagsire: 38×24×39 (15 inches)

They are just the right size to hug the daylights out of them, and if they are as fluffy as promised, it could be the last Nintendo merchandise you or a child ever needs. But the fun doesn’t need to stop there. Fluffy Hugging Plush Pokémon aside, Build-A-Bear has a two-foot-fall Jumbo Snorlax for sale that could also be the alpha and omega of squeezable Pokémon merchandise. And don’t forget that you can always grab yourself a Pokémon “ugly” sweater too.
