Japan's adorable mascot character Rascal the Raccoon (Araiguma Rascal) understandably has lots of merchandise to his furry name, but his latest incarnation is a three-in-one giant plushie that can act as a laundry net, storage bag, and cuddly stuffed animal.

If you're wondering about the laundry aspect of the plushie, it's a reference to the washing of food raccoons sometimes do (the Japanese for raccoon, "Araiguma", translates to "washing bear). The 74cm long bag can store several blankets and goods (which can help fill it out into a cuddly stuffed animal) but also hold laundry.

It can be tossed in with the laundry it holds as well.

The limited quantity (200 in total) are available from maker Daiya's Rakuten store for 4,950 yen.
