Takara Tomy is currently producing a large-sized plush of Kirby, one of Nintendo and HAL Laboratory’s popular characters. Pre-orders of the plush are available throughout February 2021 in Japan. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
Made of polyester and polyurethane, this giant Kirby plush will be 600mm wide, 380mm tall, and 800mm long. The plush will make a great companion in your bedroom, as you can place a laptop on it, use it as a sleeping pillow, and even cuddle it to relax all day long.
Although two smaller Kirby plushies have already been released, this giant-sized plush is a new production. It will be made to order, and the pre-orders are immediately available in Japan until February 28, 2021, or until it has reached a certain number of orders, whichever comes first.
Priced at 11,000 yen (~$105), the finished product is planned to be delivered from late June 2021. Takara Tomy also noted that it might sell the plush outside of Japan as well.
This giant Kirby plush is one of the new merchandise teased by HAL Laboratory staff members in their 2021 aspirations. The developer team behind the Kirby series also promised to deliver more games in 2021. The latest game in the series is Kirby Fighters 2, now available digitally on the Nintendo Switch.
