Super comfy Slowpoke chair lets you melt into a Pokemon’s warm embrace

By grape Japan

Contrary to his lazy demeanor, Water/Psychic-type Pokemon has actually been quite active in Japan, being named an official ambassador of Kagawa prefecture, and thus taking over its hotel rooms, hot springs, and public transportation.

It looks like Slowpoke (or Yadon as he's known in Japan) has found a way to work while lounging, however, and with the intention of making you just as lazy. That's because Japanese furniture company Cellutane is releasing this big and comfy Slowpoke chair.

Technically, the official name of the product is the Slowpoke (Yadon) Bean Sofa, but no matter what you call it the micro bead and urethane filled chair is especially designed by Cellutane to provide extra comfy sits for long periods of time, and it perfectly captures Slowpoke's spaced out but very content facial expression and distinctive tail right down to the last detail.



You can even pair it with a Poke Ball ottoman to rest your feet, also sold by Cellutane.


It measures at 920 mm (width) x 1010 mm (wide) x 720 mm (height) and weighs approximately 8.75 kg. With a machine washable cover, it's easy to keep clean as well.

Those hoping to melt into the warm embrace of Slowpoke can do so for 28,400 yen, ordering from Cellutane directly or other online retailers like Rakuten.

Poor old Yadon has to have someone's behind or back in his face. I think they should have put his face on the other side somehow out of consideration. He would have looked a lot happier with someone nestled against his back.

I'd prefer a Kabigon comfy chair myself but the one up there is still quite cute, though the stare may become a little unsettling after a while.

I would hate to think there was a room in my house where that thing would not look totally out of place.

Not only is it very expensive but also very unhealthy for your spine and posture. It is not constructed to last for many years.

So the seat insides are made in Japan, but the cover is made somewhere else ... China ?

Kids may like it though. However what about a Huge Totoro Cushion ? That'd possibly more popular amongst both Adults & Kids alike ?
