By now, you’ve looked at this picture and may have wondered either this is a ripoff item, or if Sega really condoned Down Syndrome Sonic in its product line for a time.
But some of our older readers may remember these plushies. This one is from 1993, and was made by Dakin–and a celebrated Sonic scener has it on EBay.
Our friend SSNTails wrote in to tell us he’s putting it up for auction. It’s been in storage for a while, but it’s withstood the test of time. Bidding is going on now–as of the time of this article’s publication, it stands at just $9.99–but it won’t last. The auction will end Monday evening. If nothing else, it’s a nice piece of old-school history.
