Thanks, Japan: the Plush Isopod
Japan creates all sorts of weird stuff, and today we’re going to explore their love of the adorable daiogusokumushi, or Isopod.
Americans might find this creature strange or creepy, but to the Japanese (and weirdos all around the world), it’s cute enough to warrant its own stuffed animal. Soft, intricately detailed, and the exact size of a human baby, the plush isopod will bring comfort and luck to your family while also freaking out any salesmen or religious figures who may stop by at any time. They’re available in several sizes and colors and hopefully will replace the bear as America’s favorite stuffed companion. Just imagine the peaceful sleep you’ll get with an isopod as your pillow.
