Chinese online marketplace Taobao is selling a comfy-looking futon-style ‘Chinchilla bed’ that has a design prominently similar to Studio Ghibli’s ‘Totoro’ from My Neighbor Totoro.
According to Japanese new site SoraNews24, “The item, like many from sites like Taobao and Ali Express, sits in a legal area as grey as its fur. There are some noticeable differences from Ghibli’s copyrighted image though, with the head slightly less rounded, and the placement of the ears and shape of the nose and mouth ever so slightly off.”
There’s no mention of ‘Totoro’ inside the product’s description that reads, “Patent authentic, quality assurance! Crystal super soft velvet, very skin-friendly material; gifts!”
‘Chinchilla bed’ costs 552CNY (US$83) for the largest size of 2.4 meters by 2 meters. This comes together with a set of Chinchilla cushions and a club-like tail.
