A collaboration between Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami and UNIQLO UT division gives birth to this unique yet gorgeous Doraemon Plush Toy.

For the first time ever, the Doraemon x Takashi Murakami Plush Toy will feature the lovable robotic cat covered with colourful work filled with characters Doraemon and Nobita, Doraemon’s secret gadgets, and Murakami’s characteristic flowers.

The designs depict the world of Doraemon, including a humorous scene of Nobita begging for Doraemon’s help, and shirts printed with familiar secret gadgets such as the “Take-copter” and “Small Light.” – UNIQLO
