If you’re in the mood for something that is both cute and diabolical, then you’re in luck, because FuRyu is creating a line of made-to-order poseable plush toys modeled after the Teddy Demons from Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle, a supernatural comedy manga by Kagiji Kumanomata about a kidnapped princess who won’t let her captivity interfere with her beauty rest.

The original Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle manga is serialized by Shogakukan in their Weekly Shōnen Sunday manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Viz Media. Crunchyroll currently streams the TV anime adaptation, which is directed by Mitsue Yamazaki and features animation productio by Doga Kobo, and describes the story of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle as follows:
Syalis is a princess. A really cute one. When she gets kidnapped by the Demon King as a hostage, she’s stuck in a castle full of demons, waiting to be rescued by her knight in shining armor. So what does she do? What any of us would. Take a nap—on a pillow she fashioned from her Teddy Demon guards. Duh.
