Nintendo is the absolute master of giving permission to sell Kirby merchandise. Now, Japanese company Premium Bandai has announced a new plush of the pink ball that is sure to be a hit this holiday season in the Land of the Rising Sun. This body pillow is not only made for hugging but also for warmth.

Look how cute he is! I’d love to snuggle him up while heating my freezing skin in the winter.
Using USB, the Kirby plush will warm up to 42° ~ 46° in 30 seconds. For safety purposes, heating will turn off automatically after one hour so you don’t get burned by the pink one’s hot burning love.
If you are interested in the merch, you can pre-order it for 5,480 yen (about $53). It will ship in January 2021. Hopefully, the wondrous cushion will see a release outside of Japan one day.
Enthusiasts, how much would you be willing to spend to nab one of these heated Kirbys? How often do you dream of the sweet embrace of Sakurai’s greatest creation? Let us know in the comment field below.
