Giant Snorlax Plushes Turn Japan Into a Real-Life Pokemon World
August 23, 2016
Earlier this year Game Freak and the Pokemon Company made some headlines when they announced this officially liscensed giant-sized Snorlax plush for sale.
The promise of a near life-sized huggable pokemon that stood at 150cm long was too enticing and orders rushed in for the $495 premium cushion from across Japan...
But it's when the Snorlaxes began arriving that things got interesting.
It's common knowledge that Japanese homes are smaller than what we're used to in The West, but it's another thing to see just how massively obstructive the Snorlaxes can be in these spaces!
One unlucky owner was shocked to discover that the Pokemon's box could not physically fit through their front door:
Even out of the box it takes up almost their entire kitchen!
Another concerned father was alarmed by the grim warning label that came attached, a reminder to be careful around dangerous wild pokemon.
For fans of the game, the sight of a slumbering Snorlax blocking their way should be an incredibly nostalgic experience.
But once you finally find enough space for it, think of all the fun you'll have together with your new plushie friend!
We like you. Do you like us too?
Don't ask me again.
