J-List has been good to plush collectors lately but they hit the mother load with their latest batch of Studio Ghibli-licensed plushes which were recently added to the site. The four new additions are from the movies, My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind, and Princess Mononoke, and are a Snoozing Totoro plush, a Kitsunerisu (or fox squirrel, if you prefer) beanie plush, and two Yakkuru plushes (one standard and one beanie variety).
I personally prefer Yakkuru, Prince Ashitaka's noble steed, in his standard 17 centimeter tall form (US$35). His saddle and red reins add to the plush and make him more recognizable. The snoozing Totoro (US$48) with little Mei perched on his stomach comes in a very close second. He actually snores, with his big belly moving up and down in sync with the sounds. The two beanie plushes are cute as well (US$19.50 each) and look like they are a good size for displaying on your desk.
All of these plushes are available now. Any Miyazaki fans out there excited about this update?
