Totoro Pillowcase

The year 2021 saw a renewed interest in the 1988 family film of Hayao Miyazaki, "My Neighbor Totoro."

And just like with how Totoro captured the hearts then, the creature is also making adults fall in love with it once again.

Perhaps the pandemic toll has influenced grown-ups to look back in the past, so they hope for the better amid the present situation.

If you're someone who finds himself weirdly aching for the past, this collection of Totoro pillowcases may relieve you from some burden of worrying about what the future holds.

Sleep tight and soundly as you lay your heads down to the soft fabric material of these Totoro pillowcases. Think about your childhood favorite, Totoro, and maybe, just maybe, things would feel a little lighter when you wake up.

There are many reasons why Totoro transcends generation.

For starters, the creature is adorable.

In the film, Totoro looks like a giant rat. However, in real life, the creature is a chinchilla that is furry and no bigger than one palm.

There's are also talks going rounds that the film is from director Hayao Miyazaki's personal experience. There were accounts in the book "Hayao Miyazaki: Master of Japanese Animation" saying that his mother was sick with spinal tuberculosis when he was a child.

In "My Neighbor Totoro," protagonists Satsuki and Mei also has a mother who suffers from an ailment similar to tuberculosis, although the movie did not name her illness.

This theory heightened when in the film's novel version, the girls' mom stayed at the Shichikokuyama Hospital, specializing in tuberculosis. The treatment the mom could get from the hospital was the reason why the girls moved to a nearby house.

Another good reason why "My Neighbor Totoro" was famous then and today is that it has elements similar to another childhood classic, "Alice in Wonderland."

Viewers of the film noticed the parallelism when Mei met Totoro in the same circumstances when Alice decided to follow the white rabbit.

If you watch the film now, you will see how Mei fell down the camphor tree inside is reminiscent of how Alice slid down the rabbit hole straight to the wonderland.

Another similarity is the Catbus in the film "My Neighbor Totoro" resembles the Cheshire Cat's description in "Alice in Wonderland." For instance, both have designs patterned after a feline, and both have wide eyes and enormous smiles.

I could go and on about Totoro and the film, but I stop right here to give you time to watch the movie for yourself.

Curl into bed with any of these Totoro pillowcases to make your experience satisfyingly complete.

This lineup of Totoro pillowcases comes in amazing colors and soft fabric. Curl into bed and travel back in time as you hug your favorite chinchilla once again.
