get your plushy game on


The next time you accidentally run Yoshi off the road during a particularly heated game of Mario Kart, and feel like flinging your controller at the telly in defeat, reach for this much safer plushy version instead. Hand-sewn in Baltimore by fibre artist Amanda Adams, the crafty lady behind Close Call Studio, these Nintendo 64 controllers are made to scale with recycled felt and cardboard. Amanda began whipping these up while in quarantine, along with a bunch of other soft toy versions of household objects (like wine bottles and lava lamps). Not a bad way to spend iso, we think. Felt Nintendo game console and cartridges sold separately.
