Plush and Stuffed Toys
This is the portion of the Museum dedicated to plush and stuffed toys. These plushes are about a 50/50 split of Japanese and North American origin. They show up on both ebay/mercari and Yahoo Japan or Mercari Japan, but the Japanese plushes are immeasurably cheaper on YJ. There are some rarer plush from central and South America, or from Singapore, but those are as rare as the 90s bath spongue plush!!

PLEASE NOTE: few plush remain that i'm seeking! please check the wanted page!

THE ORB
Rarity: EXTREMELY rare
Distributed in: China?
Year and Maker: 2016, -one- Aliexpress listing??
Nickname: THE ORB, HOLY SHIT THE ORB, MY ONE TRUE PURPOSE IN LIFE, IT IS HE

this orb was such a journey. it was 2020. i lost sleep dreaming of acquiring the orb. finally an angel from canada rescued me bc their sibling gave them the orb a while back. i gave them like... everything from my mewtwo collections that i could no longer keep up with. most had been in a box for decades anyway, and this ... this brought me much more joy. he's full of sand and kind of resembles drift charms and keychains popular for a time! absolutely not official merch tho.

Mexico(?) Keychain Plush
Rarity: EXTREMELY rare
Distributed in: Mexico?
Year and Maker: 90s, original design by Tomy?
Nickname: squashy boy

so this is kind of an oddity. there are pokemon plush that zipper inside out into pokeballs that were released in the 90s, and at one point at least a handful of mewtwos were made by TOMY using the pattern but were distributed in only small amounts and are really hard to hunt down. But i guess someone acquired the pattern and used it to make their own country's pokemon merch, and decided instead of the zipper and inside out nonsense they'd just make a tiny plush keychain. i love his tiny felt claws.

Jumbo 'Mirage' Plush

Year and Maker: 90s, some company in a Cantonese speaking country
Nickname: 'the mirage plush' 'squishy pinky boy'

i scoured ruten using keywords a friend studying Chinese provided me until i found him, and then used a proxy bid service. i love him. but this is most typically what mewtwo collectors refer to as 'the' mirage plush design!

Small 'Mirage' Plush
Rarity: EXTREMELY rare
Distributed in: Taiwan?
Year and Maker: 90s, some company in a Cantonese speaking country
Nickname: 'hes so PURPLE'

the smaller version of the above mirage plush, this guy is about the same size as the pokedoll mewtwo, for reference. The fabric, while still cheapy, seems a bit higher quality than the large lad. this particular fellow is from another canadian collector who was liquidating their mirage collection. now he lives amidst his brothers for all time. yes.

White-tailed Mewtwo Plush
Rarity: rare
Distributed in: Japan
Year and Maker: 1998, Banpresto
Nickname: White-tailed, Whitey

This is one of the rarer plushes out there for Mewtwo, and his design predates the movie (you can tell by the white tail). it was produced for vending machine prizes in Japan, and while it's hard to find them for a good price they still pop up on auction sites pretty regularly!

"Big Size" Mewtwo UFO catcher
Rarity: Uncommon
Distributed in: Japan
Year and Maker: 1998, Banpresto
Nickname: Stewie

Doesn't his face look like Stewie from Family Guy? I think this was released right after the movie, hence the bright purple tail. i guess these were larger than most UFO catcher plush at the time, and was released in crane games w both pikachu and togepi according to the tag.

"Lanky" Mewtwo UFO catcher
Rarity: not too hard
Distributed in: Japan
Year and Maker: 1999, Banpresto
Nickname: Lanky

This mewtwo has long, glorious dancer legs ;o It's just plain silly looking. Because the legs are so far splayed, it has a very hard time standing up. It was from UFO catcher machines.

Nickname: mewtwo's baby mewtwo, NO THATS NOT A CAT TOY YOU CANT HAVE IT

there was a sad, depressing time in my life where i thought my bell plush had been lost in a move. i thought i'd sold it, actually, when times got hard. but then when i was going through bags of old stuffed animals in my mom's attic, i heard a little chime... let's never be apart again you little felt thing. another claw machine prize, it came seated in a box that showed the whole line.

Nickname: Bendy-two

Bendy-two has ball joints all through its body and can be posed in rediculous Michael-Jacksonesque ways. It was available in the US Pokémon center before it closed, which is where I got mine. I'm not sure where in Japan it was distributed. A couple pokemon plush collectors want like a giant pile of this guy so he's highly contested to get!

Bath Buddi Mewtwo
Rarity: RARE!!
Distributed in: North America
Year and Maker: 1999?, Franco & Sons
Nickname: buddy, scrubby, obscenely priced, no regrets

so if there's one way to make a plush rare, it's to make it prone to mildewing because it's designed to go in the tub and eventually be thrown away lmfao. that's why it's SO DIFFICULT to find one of these now! mine is in less than mint condition, its hangtag and suction cup were cut away. but it smells floral! this mewtwo is also -very- tiny, like. it'd look small in the hand of a child.

"Cyrus" Mewtwo plush
Rarity: rare
Distributed in: Canada/USA
Year and Maker: 1999 (?), Play by Play
Nickname: Cyrus

Cyrus is the fluffiest Mewtwo I've got, though its fluff has worn down a bit by dust and age. The fuzzy fur kind of hide that he has tiny little pig eyes. This plush is real cuddly. He's also pretty big, which is why I put a thumb in for reference. It's named after Cyrus from Zarla's Pokémon Fanfics.

Plush Mewtwo Backpack
Rarity: EXTREMELY Rare
Distributed in: US and Canada
Year and Maker: 90s? Play by Play
Nickname: Kissyface

For those of you who once bought a plush pokémon backpack, you know they suffer from the critical flaw of being too full of stuffing to put ANYTHING inside. well, mewtwo came to me ripped, so i took that rip and removed some of that problematic stuffing. now he can not only hold my change but also my cell phone and wallet. these things never were real good size-wise, but i loves it just the same. I sewed his mouth shut, but originally it had these hilarious pink kissy-lips. I'm sure it was supposed to look like an open mouth but it totally didn't. They really can not fit an adult's shoulders lmao but i've already modded mine ENOUGH HAVENT I

Awwww. This guy is so soft and cute, but is way too awkwardly shaped to even consider to call 'huggable' - it's all SKULL. And looks so angry about it. I could hardly blame it, though. While it's not terribly hard to find him these days, it's a lil hard to find one that isn't being price gouged.
