These giant ‘Demon Slayer’ plushies will have you practicing your breathing techniques

November 17, 2022
Gigantic “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” plushies are here to complete your home decor. 
Ironically created in a chibi style, these giant plushies are anything but short and tiny. Weighing in at 9 kilograms (approximately 19.8 lbs), each plushie is 106 centimeters (approximately 41.7 in) tall and 65 centimeters (approximately 25.6 in) wide. 
Featured in Taito’s Doqute series of jumbo plushies, the cuddly characters are a significant addition to the popular “Demon Slayer” anime’s merch lineup. 
There are five character plushies available. The first is the protagonist Tanjiro, complete with his unique red scar.

The next is fan-favorite Rengoku with his iconic flaming hair.
