Real-Life Arcanine Pokémon Plushie Is The Size Of An Actual Dog

Pokémon are great. I know this because I have children, and they tell me: Pokémon, dad, are great. They've all kinds of plushie Pokémon on their beds, from your classic Pikachu to some where I'm like, no idea, but I guess that's a frog? One is absolutely a cat but on fire; and another seems to be Robin Hood? Or more like Chobin Hood from Secret of Mana? If you know, you know. Little arrow-spaffing bastards.

But what's not so great about these Pokémon plushies is their size. They're teeny! You can fit several of them on one single bed and fit a normal-sized human child there, too. It's not enough. So thank goodness, frankly, that The Pokémon Company continues to produce oversized (or, maybe, life-sized?) Pokémon plushies for adult-sized beds. Cos when you've an Arcanine like this one between the sheets, who needs anything else?

This enormous Arcanine - now available for pre-order, with a release date of May 2022 - is the latest in a small but compelling line of grown-up-proportioned Pokémon plushies that's previously featured a Gengar you can put your head inside of and a Slowpoke that could smother a bear. Measuring 59 inches wide and over 27 inches high, which is almost the size of a Great Dane according to stats over on GamesRadar+, this cuddly pal could quite conceivably kill a child if dropped from a suitably lofty height. Do fire-type dog monsters land on all fours? Guess we'll find out.

If the thought of that isn't eye-watering enough - please, do not throw your toys at passing pedestrians from fourth-story windows to see if they can inflict fatal damage, it's generally frowned upon - then the price for this enormo-mon probably will. It comes in at an appropriately hefty $449.99 in the US, and $584.99 in Canada, which is where it's available for pre-order. Nope, no UK details right now. Probably petrol related.

Nobody show this post to my kids, okay? I'm out of pocket enough right now on school shirts and lunchboxes - spend that is super effective on my wallet. So a flippin' Pokémon that costs as much as a PlayStation 5 can wait 'til, well, forever. But if you've money to burn, you sure could do worse than throw it at a large, inanimate, fictional animal that will make your IRL pets wonder if you still love them.
