Back in February, I was one of the first to report on an oversized Shironeko stuffed doll that was so realistic, you could probably switch it out for the real thing and no one would even notice. A lot of people (myself included) were very interested in purchasing the exceedingly realistic plush rendering of our favorite basket cat, but just like most awesome cat stuff, you’re going to have to move to Japan to get your hands on this kitty. (At this point I’m considering just packing up and moving there to start my own cat merchandise export biz).
Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader named Epe, I’ve learned that the stuffed animal is now available for sale from a Japanese website for the bargain basement price of 13,440 yen (around $160 USD). Much like designer cat fashion, no one ever said that bringing home your favorite internet feline would ever come cheap!
