Online Japanese store Hamee Strapya World is selling a series of plush isopod dolls that range in size all the way up to XL at 55 centimeters in length. For comparison, actual giant isopods traditionally range between 20 and 40 centimeters.
Giant isopods (daiogusokumushi in Japanese) are passionately loved by some people now in Japan. They found the creatures mysterious and cute. A giant isopod in Toba Aquarium has eaten no food for over 4 years. This giant isopod doll is close to the real ones in shape. The doll has cute round eyes and is very soft and comfortable to the touch.
