Sleep Tight With Giant Sexy Daikon Radish by Your Side

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

Want someone to cuddle in bed without the hassle of dealing with a human significant other? Of course, hug pillows are popular options among anime fans. But how about a more unique alternative? Vaguely anthropomorphic giant daikon radish, anyone?

Felissimo's YOU+MORE! brand revealed its new "sexy daikon" hug pillow on Monday. You may never feel lonely again with this huggable 115-centimeter (about 3.8-foot) root vegetable by your side. The plush pillow's details include a realistic color gradient printed on the daikon, fabric resembling succulent leaves, and smaller roots coming off the daikon's "legs."

The pillow costs 7,776 yen (about US$73), and a mini 66-centimeter (about 2.2-foot) version is also available for 3,456 yen (about US$32). YOU+MORE! is accepting pre-orders now, and the deadline to order is May 18. Orders are slated to ship between late April and late May.
