There is hardly any cartoon that could reach the pinnacle of cult status as Pokémon did. The Japanese anime series not only defined my childhood but also amassed a frenzied following. If you are one of those Pokémaniacs who loves being surrounded by anime furniture and plushie, then this $200 Slowpoke bean bag chair is meant for you.
Japanese furniture maker Cellutane partnered with Pokémon Company to roll out a furniture piece that is made after Water/Psychic Pokemon named Slowpoke. Currently, up for sale, the Pokemon chair (called Yadon beads sofa in Japan) weighs around 8.75 kg and measures 14*16*11 inches in length, breadth, and height respectively; implying, it’s ideal for your living room. Want to know the sad aspect? It’s not available outside of Japan as of yet.
Cozy in appearance and comfortable to sit, it is one of the finest Pokémon that is mish-mashed into a furniture item. The Slowpoke chair is made out of polystyrene beads and a polyester fabric which means the shape of the Pokémon chair won’t be the same once you start using it. It is inclined to change and won’t look like an armchair eventually. So, it will be a bean bag at least but there is a high possibility of the item not staying true to its tag of being called an armchair or sofa as they say in Japan.
If I was a resident of Japan, I’d even like the item as a bean bag, but $200 is just too much to ask for. However, in comparison to the AP collection plush chair, it might just fit in my budget willingly or not. Available in a soft pink coat, the bean bag boast a cute facial expression on the backrest. What’s more adorable is the Slowpoke’s ears and tail, which can melt any heart. The convenient thing about the Pokémon chair is that its cover is removable and can be washed by hand.
