Posh Paws partners with Play by Play on anime and manga licensed plush

Published on: 27th April 2023

Some of the biggest and most popular anime and manga licences will be available from Posh Paws in plush form this Q4.


Posh Paws has partnered with Play by Play to bring anime and manga licensed plush to the UK later this year. The new anime range will include fan favourites such as Demon Slayer, One Punch Man, Jujutsu Kaisen and Dragon Ball Super, to meet the growing demand for the Japanese inspired product that consumers are increasingly looking for at retail.

All the plush that Posh Paws will be releasing is made using 100% recycled stuffing and finished with realistic detailing, to ensure that each character is brought to life vividly in the hands of avid fans.

Demon Slayer has quickly become one of the most watched anime series across leading streaming platforms such as Netflix, Crunchyroll and Prime Video, with seasons 1 and 2 available to watch now. On the big screen, the Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles movie is ranked as one of the most successful anime movies ever, winning Animation of the Year in the 44th Japan Academy Awards last year. Posh Paws’ Demon Slayer range will include the four main characters: Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu and Inosuke, in 12” sizes.

JuJutsu Kaisen’s first season is the No.1 most watched anime on leading anime streaming platform, Crunchyroll. Season two is released this spring, and stock can be secured now from Posh Paws, for summer delivery. The first Posh Paws collection will consist of four plush 12” characters: Yuji Itadori, Megumi, Sukuna and Nobara.

Dragon Ball Super is the sequel anime and manga series in the Dragon Ball media franchise. With over 600+ episodes available to stream across multiple digital platforms and various movies in the franchise, the Posh Paws range will include six Dragon Ball Super characters.

One Punch Man is a trending Japanese manga series that has two anime seasons available to stream currently and a third due to be release this autumn/winter. Posh Paws will be releasing the  two main characters, Saitama and Genos, in 12” sizes.

Posh Paws continually monitors the expanding anime and manga market, as well as which properties are trending in the UK, and will be expanding its offering further in Q4 and the run up to Christmas.
