Bandai’s official online store, Premium Bandai, is currently accepting preorders for a life-sized Doraemon plush toy. The toy is being released to celebrate the legendary character’s birthday on September 3rd.
The toy approximates Doraemon’s officially-stated height of 129.3 centimeters tall, designed in a sitting pose measuring 110 centimeters tall. It weighs 11.3 kilograms. Each toy is made in Japan, individually and with loving care, so that customers can have their very own Doraemon sitting in their bedroom.
The plush toy retails for 194,250 yen, plus shipping and handling. Preorders will be accepted until 11:00 PM JST on October 20th. Orders are scheduled to ship in December.
