Damn, that stuffed bear is effing huge.
San-X is once again rolling out a life-sized version of its popular lazy bear character Rilakkuma. The plushie is 5.4 feet tall and weighs 19 pounds.
Which means in real life Rilakkuma is not some small, cute bear, but more like this:
The plushie is priced at 66,434 yen (US$655) and will be available for order in Japan until September 4.
August 10 - 6:06am Update: An earlier version of this story stated that Sanrio made Rilakkuma. That is incorrect. San-X makes the bear! We apologize for the error.
