If you ever wanted a little Isabelle for your very own, you’re finally in luck. Pre-orders are now open on a new range of plush toys based on the cheerful characters from its blockbuster Switch release Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Created by soft toy manufacturer San-ei Boeki, the first run of dolls includes the hard workin’, hard drinkin’ Isabelle, all-round monster Tom Nook, and Timmy and Tommy, to whom I’m fairly indifferent. The characters range from around 6-8 inches in height and are sporting their summery getups from Nintendo’s tropical island smash hit.
All four characters are available to pre-order from Amazon Japan today. Isabelle and Tom Nook retail for ¥1,760 each (roughly $17 USD) while a double pack of Timmy and Tommy retails for ¥2,956 (roughly $30 USD).
