    I'm trying to find a life sized Charizard plush (Don't ask why). The biggest I've been able to find is just over a foot.

    i have never seen a life sized Charizard plush. the biggest i have found was a bout 2 feet, but that was a long time ago(10+ years ago).
    but i would be interested in getting one for myself

    i found this site but the plush dolls are very expensive
    but i dont know if they have life seized ones

    I've got one that's pretty tall. If I'm comparing to my height, I'd say the thing is about 3.5 feet tall. He no longer has tags, but the plush looks old, like it is from the late 90's. I saw a plush on eBay once, that was similar to mine, but the price was crazy.

    Good luck in your search~

    I doubt you'll find one unless you ask for a custom-made one.

    I forgot
    I knew what that was before I clicked the link, and I still laughed really really hard.


    Anyways, I doubt you'll find a life sized Charizard plushie. You might be able to look around Etsy and find someone who makes Pokemon plushies and try and get them to make you one, but I dunno how expensive that would be/if anyone would be willing to do it.

    Fine, but then I'm just going to assume you need one to hollow out and wear as a costume for purposes I dare not contemplate. :mellow:


    Anyway. Plushies that big are never produced on a mass scale, and you'll have to have one custom made. And pay an arm and a leg.
    I would suggest contacting a costume maker, as they're experienced at working at that scale.

    Actually I wish to use it to bring a smile to a little girl's face. How does that make you feel about yourself?

    I had a life sized stuffed bear that was my height when I was a child, but I was around 4 ft at the time.

    Warm and fuzzy.


    Anyway. Your best bet is to contact a costume maker, they will have the tools and material to work at that scale, and would probably be cheaper than custom plush toy makers.

    Could you make one with the new 3D printing now? Or will it even work with cloth, even though it would still cost an arm an a leg to make it.
