This lovable, huggable, bop-able beast of joyful-joy stands 52" tall, has a sand weighted base and weighs 12 lbs!  He's an edition of 350 and certainly a radiant piece in any collection.  Malfi, a trademark character in the FriendsWithYou universe is artful, playful, positive, unique, colorful and kinetic.  Truly a statement piece.  Merging the lines between art, design and playful product.  Bring one home and let him radiate the room with his polka dots, round belly and gooish, rubbery, goofy smile.  Give him a bop, he always comes back.  Packaged in a closed 4 color box.
