I got my first real game system back in the 90's when Sonic 2
first came out; it came as a bundle pack with the system, and I friggen' loved it! So a couple of weeks ago, when I stumbled across these amazing plushies of the various item boxes from the game (the style matches both Sonic 1 and 2), I knew I had to have one. Or two, as the case may be.

Stop over and git' you one while she's still making them!
