Let This Cute Kirby USB Plushie Keep You Warm And Cozy During Winter

Cute and warm companion but weapon of mass destruction? Kirby is home to many mysteries. Only the Masahiro Sakurai, master of all Kirby, can stop it...

November 23, 2020

Kirby is cute and fluffy and makes you want to hug him, so what if we made a Kirby plushie that warms up via USB charging? That must have been what someone at Bandai and Nintendo said at some point, leading to this specific good timeline. Where the future did not refuse to change, and we have Kirby plushies that warm up via USB.

The あったかぬいぐるみ カービィ, or Warm Plushie Kirby, is a new product which just entered pre-order phase on Premium Bandai. You can preorder one for 5480 Yen (around 52 American $) and gear up for the upcoming harsh winter. The Kirby USB Plushie will release sometime in January 2021.

So how does this Kirby USB Plushie works? (Obvious, but we need one of those SEO sub titles, Y’know)

Basically, you have a Kirby plushie, with an USB cable. If you plug the cable in, after around 30 seconds, the Kirby plushie will start warming up. You can use it at work or at home, which is the same place right now for most people in Western countries lucky enough to have a job. You can also bring it with you outside by using a portable USB battery. The Kirby USB plushie will warm to a temperature of 42°C to 46°C, making it not too hot. And perfect to keep clinging to. (By the way, if you only use units from the land of Freedom and Justice, that’s 107.6°F.)

Moreover, while you could use it in the winter, you could also dream of using it at the office in a post Covid-19 world. Where you’ll finally have to deal again with that colleague who sets the AC way too cold.

He’s warm, fluffy, and cute. Isn’t Kirby the best? I’m pretty sure a lot of people in Japan agree, seeing how viral the Livedoor News article about it is.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

If you’d like to look at every nook and cranny of the Kirby USB plushie, multiple photos have been shared as well. You can check them out in the gallery below.

Kirby or Hoshi no Kirby (Kirby of the Stars) is one of Nintendo’s most beloved and recognizable mascots. Primarily created by Masahiro Sakurai, Kirby regularly gets these sort of goods. However, Kirby, with his mouth, can also be a weapon of mass destruction not to be underestimated. If you buy one of these, please handle your Kirby with responsibility. Think of all the politicians who’d have a field trip saying playing video games with Kirby makes one violent. Please take care of yourselves, and your Kirby. Thank you.
