Two new plush from Squishable were meant to be just for Halloween, but then 2020 happened.

Now, The Mysterious Plague Doctor Plush is for families at any time. Medieval medical workers may not have been very good at science, but it turns out their fashion can never go out of style.

The huggable character is available in a 7-inch size ($21) and a 15-inch size ($45) and features a glow-in-the-dark lantern. A 7-inch ($21) of his medieval BFF, Plague Nurse, is also available. It was designed by fan request to be a counterpart for the doctor, and it holds its glow-in-the-dark lantern on the opposite side so the two can hold hands as they head toward attempting to cure a deadly virus.

Both plush are available for preorder on Squishable’s website and are due to go out in early fall.
