Do you fantasize about owning a Plush Bear that’s as tall as, and likely (hopefully) much, much rounder than you are? If so, then your search is over, and all you need to make that dream a reality is 1,300 American dollars! Here’s what I can tell you about the World’s Largest Rilakkuma Plush:
“Brought to you by San-X Japan, Rilakkuma is loved for his cuddly cuteness and tendency to to be lazy. Rilakkuma is big in Japan, big in America, and now . . . BIG in your house! This gigantic jumbo plush measures in at 6 feet tall and weighs 24 lbs. He’s so big, you could probably just use him as a chair. But if not, he definitely makes the comfiest BFF ever. Includes signature zipper and blue polka dot material inside.”
Fives years is forever in the life of a piece of NYC Street Art, but Shepard Fairey’s Obey Lotus Flower Stencil, which first went up at the end of June in 2011, is still loud and proud on the southern facade of 213 Bowery, at the corner of Rivington. I passed by it over the weekend and it looks darn good for its age.
Here’s a view of that corner from the traffic island in the middle of Bowery. And doesn’t This look familiar?
Doesn’t looking at this very gigantic Pink Flamingo Pool Foatie just make you think of summer, and how much fun it is to float around in the pool on a sunny summer day, perhaps while enjoying a cold tropical drink? Ah, the life.
We found this guy at ICFF, hanging out in the booth for Sunny Life of Sydney, Australia; a company that seems to represent a lot of neat products associated with Summer. Summer!
