My cousin’s awesome Totoro plushie totally inspired me to make my own, though I went with something much smaller and easier. And I’m not the only one. Another crafty cousin made his own Totoro, refining the original design. We’re just a Totoro-happy family.
Except for when we’re not. While said Totoros were being stitched up at Thanksgiving, an aunt asked about the character we were so enthusiastic to make. The Internet was consulted and alarming images were revealed. Turns out one has to become acclimated to Totoro’s unusually large mouth from a young age in order to not find him scary. But I promise to anyone out there who still hasn’t seen My Neighbor Totoro, that he really is adorable and a friend to children.
