Designer Philip Lee, who makes a range of "Classicbot" toys based on classic Mac designs, this week unveiled a new huggable 12-inch Classicbot Plush.


The Classicbot Plush, priced at $67, is based on Apple's Macintosh Classic, which was sold in the early 90s. While expensive, the Classicbot Plush is highly detailed and has a few notable features worth pointing out.


All of the Classic Macintosh details are carefully embroidered, and the plush features articulated arms that can be put into different positions. The fabric the Classicbot Plush is made from has been chosen because it's "very soft" to the touch.


Along with articulated arms, the Classicbot Plush features interchangeable facial expressions thanks to velcro-backed pixel pieces that can be arranged in a multitude of ways.


The Classicbot Plush can be pre-ordered from the Classicbot website as of today, with orders set to ship out at the end of April 2020.

From a productivity standpoint Velcro is the most cuddly fabric. You will have to tear yourself away from it.

Haha the stuff on their website is actually really cool. I love that people make this niche stuff and do it so well.

Any place but here or there....
Just ordered the Classicbot figure and the desktop icons bundle. I want the iBot too (They reflect my first two Macs and are so cute).

I do not want the pillows though.

As soon as I ordered these I thought, well, they need a new Mac to hang out with. 😋

MR needs to create a Store tab on their website for these kinds of things.

Actually, this is a brilliant idea. Can you imagine the amount of members this would draw if Macrumors actually had a storefront where you could purchase various Apple related/tech items? I know for one, I’d probably be a buyer versus visiting external websites if I could make direct purchases direct through Macrumors.

This is genius and has to happen. I won't travel the web for Apple-inspired, -themed or -related items, but I'd certainly peruse a tab on the top of MacRumors.
