I've spent quite awhile trying to find some answers for this, and I thought maybe you guys here on the forum might know: Is this Elmo a real plush? Assuming he is, does anyone have the remotest idea where he came from? I can't figure out if he's supposed to be wearing an elephant-eared hoodie, mouse ears, or maybe Disney's Mickey. I'm able to find a select few of somewhat similarly bodied plushes from Japan, but none of them have the hoodie or plastic eyes (all the close ones I've found have cloth eyes), so nothing exactly the same. Can anyone offer any help?
