Natsume is the publisher of Harvest Moon which originally came out in Japan for Super Nintendo. The game series has produced multiple titles for handheld and console systems which focus on building a farm with crops, animals, and eventually finding a love interest to marry. This sim life RPG game has a small yet dedicated following of fans who love this series because it is different than everything else on the market.
New game releases often come with a pre-order bonus of a special plush doll. This started way back in Japan before the games were ported over to North America but has continued even up into 2013. I have scoured the web putting together 12 of the most adorable Harvest Moon stuffed animal plushies ever released. Some of these can still be found in eBay auctions but the older toys are almost impossible to find even within Japan.
