If there’s one thing every human being has in common with some of anime’s most beloved friendly monsters, it’s a love of being super, super lazy. Mei found Totoro sleeping one off in the forest, after all, and who can forget that obviously lazy (though somewhat creepy) daikon-monster in Spirited Away?

Then there’s perhaps the most famous lazy anime monster: Snorlax from Pokémon; who I always want to call “the Snorlax” because it sounds like a Dr. Seuss character. The bear-like Snorlax is known throughout the Pokémon universe as an exceptionally lazy, docile – though voracious – creature. Heck, its first appearance in the anime was in a story that revolved around Snorlax falling asleep in a river somehow and blocking up an entire town’s water supply for months.

Now you and Snorlax can block up lazy RPG towns’ water supplies together with this exceedingly comfortable-looking Snorlax bed!


Created by South Korean stage wardrobe artist and Etsy craftperson Catherine Kim, the impressively large Snorlax bed can be yours for around 30,000 yen (US$300). But before you take the plunge, you should be aware that the bed is largely DIY; Kim says that shipping the bed with all its stuffing would make it exceptionally heavy and cost end users a fortune, so finding filling for the creature’s sizable stomach is on you.

Don’t worry, though. If you’re confused about how to fill out your Snorlax bed, here are some “helpful” directions from the Etsy site:

“This bed is DIY 

Buy cotton from market, and filled out body Only

If put in cotton body, it will also filled with head)”

Simple, right?
