Plush

Those crazy Japanese are at it again. I mean, ok, here on the island you can get cuddly toy rays, dolphins, sharks, turltes but this aquarium in Japan has gone one step further. They're selling cuddly toy isopods. What???

This is life-sized pillow of a giant isopod. A deep-sea dweller, the insect-looking giant isopod can grow between 7.5 and 14 inches long. One aquarium in Japan decided they'd sell a cool plush toy. Turns out, that was a good idea. 

The Numazu Deep Sea Aquarium in the city of Numazu, Japan, launched a life-sized giant isopod plush toy earlier this month for the 6,090 yen (approximately US$60). Within hours, the entire stock of 140 plush toys was sold out. Not bad for a local aquarium!

One man and his isopod. They should make that into a new show. Not good at herding sheep though.....
Next thing you know they'll be making plush toys in the shape of blobfish!. Hang on, I have an idea, where's my phone?...............

"my isopod and me, as happy as can be, tra-la-la-la-la"
