Nyoro-Nyoro Huggable Plush

«©NCSX» Known as Hattifatteners in their native land of Sweden, the strange worm-like creatures hail from the Moomins books by Tove Jannson. When the Moomins reached Japan in the 90s, the Hattifatteners became known as Nyoro-Nyoro which translates to "Slither-Slither." There's been a revival of Moomins related products recently and a huggable Nyoro-Nyroro plush has been added to the upcoming product list. Measuring an impressive 61cm or 21" in length and as nearly as thick as a fire plug, the Hattifatteners are meant to be hugged as the maiden in the photo so ably demonstrates. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late March 2007.
