My Studio Ghibli
-- and yes, it's primarily a Totoro! -- collection
Remember when I named stuffed animal plushes as being among the ten things that make me happy? And proceeded to provide photographic and other proof, at regular intervals, of my Hello Kitty adoration (here, here, and here)? Well, now here's presenting some photographic evidence of my Totoro love... ;D
And in the event that you don't know who or what are Totoro (and need some further information to figure out which is O-Totoro, Chuu-Totoro and/or Chibi-Totoro), I suggest that you: a) check out the absolutely sublime film that is My Neighbor Totoro (AKA Tonari No Totoro) post haste; and also b) make use of the relevant links that I've included in this here post.
This way, you won't -- unlike at least one aunt of mine as well as a less short-sighted friend of the family -- mistake the gray O-Totoro (even those large and...ahem...unofficial replicas of that which I like to affectionately call "the big gray thing" that I have in my collection) for a giant rat! ;(
Additionally, if you would like to see what actual stuffed rat plushes look like, I really don't think that I can do better than direct you to this post over at collecting tokens. And should you really want to know where Alejna got her stuffed rats from, scroll down to that entry's comments section or learn from me here that the answer is -- can you believe it? -- Ikea!!! :DDDDD
