2024 is the year of the dragon and if you’d like to add one to your plush collection, I’ve found lots of kawaii dragon plushies from big brands, small shops and cute characters.
Bellzi (US) always create such beautiful plush and Long-Yi, the Serpent Dragon has so many cool details. The special gold version is a limited pre-order but the standard green is available now.
Dragon types aren’t generally the cutest Pokemon but it’s definitely Dragonite’s year to shine – even getting a spot in the recent Pokemon Concierge series. This little Sitting Cuties plush at the Pokemon Center (UK/US) is perfect for displaying on a shelf.
Kidrobot (US) make a special Hello Kitty plush every year and 2024’s Year of the Dragon is super cute in a dragon suit with a removable hood.
Squishmallows Flip-A-Mallows are 2 plushies in one and this one has a fun combination of a dragon and dragonfruit! Preorder it now from HMV (UK) or check your usual Squishmallows stockists.
It was difficult to choose just one dragon from Squishable (US) as they have a lot of cute ones. This Prismatic Dragon was created for Pride Month last year and is so colourful.
I wasn’t aware that Bright Bat Design (US) made plushies but I’m glad I know now as these two dragon friends, Blush & Ink, are adorable.
I mentioned the Sumikkogurashi Year of the Dragon mini plush in our first post of the year but I had to include the whole set here as I love them so much. All the costumes are so great but I especially love Tokage (real) and his happy face. Pick your favourite at Cuteness (EU).
The very special Pusheen Year of the Dragon Plush sold out instantly last week but I wanted to give it a mention in case you didn’t see it. They won’t be restocking but JapanLA (US) do have a few of the older Dragonsheen plushies in stock.
