Chris, I have many friends who would LOVE this list: can you repost it on
LJ or summat? Or I can (with credit), if you'd rather not.

This is largely posted from an a friend who spotted ancient animal
plushies
in a museum in Japan, then went to the effort of hunting down stores. I
thought people might appreciate this. Some are very cute. I've checked
most
of the links and they appear to be working.

Hi all,

I can't claim credit for most of the attached comments. The list is largely
the work of Michael Bock. He did an amazing job on it and it seems a pity
for it to be a private email only. All I've done is check the links and add
one or two lines here and there.

Katherine
