RIIZE Anton’s “Puppy-nosaur” Plushie Design Is Peak Adorable

“RIIZE’s plushies are truly a cultural reset.”

Rookie boy group RIIZE has joined the trend of releasing official animal-style plushies to represent the members, with the members themselves proudly designing their own characters. They’ve been teasing the characters for some time, and the plushies have been released now, each going for 18,000 won (~$13 USD) for a 10cm doll key ring.

While at first the plushie looked like it could be a Sanrio-like dog character, it turns out that it’s actually a “puppy-nosaur” — a mix of a puppy and a dinosaur.

Like the other designs, fans think that this character perfectly captures Anton’s appearance and personality, and they’ve been selling extremely well. People have even been dressing them up in little costumes and sets to make him even cuter!
