It’s been a whole year since I bought a big Rilakkuma plush and I’m so glad I did. Not only is he great for emergency hugs but he doubles up as a squishy pillow when I’m lounging on the couch. If you’ve got some cash to spend, big kawaii plushies are not as expensive as you might think – here’s a few suggestions.
The plush I bought is long sold out but ARTBOX (UK) have this adorable sitting Rilakkuma plush with super fluffy fur – and Korilakkuma is available too.
There’s plenty affordable plush and body pillows with the Kakao Friends (EU) characters but I’d be tempted to spend a bit more for this adorable KANGDANIEL Apeach pillow. So comfy! US fans can shop at their Amazon store.
And a rare appearance from Pochacco as this pillow at Sanrio USA looks so squeezably cute.
