Lots of Love from Paws: TOTORO Stuffed Toy

Paws (this is how I call my husband) bought me this 3 days ago!

Totoro

Totoro is a character from Hayao Miyazaki's famous animated movie 'My Neighbour Totoro'.


Some quick facts about the movie for those who are not familiar with Japanese films:

"My Neighbor Totoro (となりのトトロ Tonari no Totoro), is a 1988 Japanese anime film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli. The film follows the two young daughters of a professor and their interactions with friendly wood spirits in postwar rural Japan." (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Neighbor_Totoro) Do click on the link if you are interested to read more about the show's plot *spoiler alert*!

So Totoro is one of the wood spirits that appears in the movie!

Look at the eyes! So cuteeee!

Me & Totoro!

I watched Totoro when I was a young girl, and has loved the character since then. Totoro is super fluffy and huggable! I think that is why I LOVE Totoro so much!

Just wanted to share my joy with all of you. Have you watched Totoro before? =D
