Pokémon plushes are big business these days, with official options and a seemingly never-ending stream of Build-A-Bear promotions. We've also had some pretty huge teddy bears to contend with, but nothing beats the home-made approach – and we have to say, we're quite jealous of the man firmly ensconced in that Snorlax in the image above. Look at the utter contentment plastered across his stupid face.
The story goes that this 7-foot, life-sized Snorlax was created by the man's wife's friend – who goes by the name KnotAgainByAmina online – and took three months and "hundreds of dollars in yarn". It cost $1000 plus materials (and that's mate's rates – she normally charges $3,500), which, judging from the guy's infuriatingly serene expression, was worth every single penny.
While that stupidly content guy is indulging in some solo-snuggling in the photo provided, his wife states with some degree of confidence that this big boi is capable of effortlessly enveloping up to three people on his soft tummy. Impressive.
If you simply cannot look at this guy's smug face without bursting into fits of jealousy then you'll be pleased to know that you can actually order one of these yourself.

I definitely do. But if I had $3500 on me, there are quite a few things I suspect I'd still want more.
Looks cool but not $3,500 cool.
Mate my tummy is at least 10 times softer and 15 times more pliable come get a piece.
Father Stone : No I'm fine.
I'm fine with my big-enough beanbag, thanks. And that only cost about AU$130.
Why spend $3500 when you can get a slightly smaller one for $350 at EB Games or Zing?Note:This is for the AU/NZ region
Bahaha what a joke of a price. Could get something just as comfy for far less and then spend that extra money on much better things.
Ok that's a weird photo?
You can buy similar non-knitted ones from Ali Express for about $40(maybe I'm a bit off, but to lazy to look it up). You need to fill them up yourself
Makes nights saving up good boy points seem a lot more tolerable!
I was about to bust into the comments section to ridicule the $3500 pricetag, but if it was all knitted by hand over months, then I suppose that's not TOO absurd.
Called it sleeping monster huh? For $3,500 I expect it to have the official name. Give me a $200 bean bag with snorelax.
@tendonerd 3500 feels fair for something that’s $1000 worth of materials. That’s 100 hours worth of work for $15 an hour.
@LUIGITORNADO I agree. It's a fair price for the effort involved. I'd just prefer if it's officially named. What if it was outsourced where it's $1.5 per hour?
@Maxz lol yeah Pokemon made chub cute. I have the I'm just here for the boos Gengar Shirt.
My neighbor Totoro parody too.
Right, no matter whether you agree with the personal lives of the creators or not, let's not derail this thread again please.
