Shironeko Debuts Life-Sized Plush Doll


Who needs a Boo The World's Cutest Dog plush, when you can have your very own Shironeko, The World's Chillest Cat doll? Shiro, the Japanese export also known as Basket Cat for his penchant for sleeping in baskets and balancing them on his head, recently posted images of the life sized plush, that matches the 9-year-old cat right down to his squinty eyes and pink jellybean toes.

Given Shiro's zen like habits, I imagine owning a stuffed version of him wouldn't be much different than owning the real thing. According to his website, the plush will go on sale in March, but there are no details yet on its price, or if it will be available to fans outside of Japan.

Can you imagine if they started making these for all of the world's favorite cats? I'm pretty sure the sale of a Maru doll would crash the internet, and I don't think you'd ever be able to get it out of the box it was shipped in!

heeheehee. too funny about a Maru doll. They should totally make one. Someone should suggest it to his owner.
