What's a Pocket Pork?

Besides being the cutest food-based plush EVER, Pocket Porks are Shawnimals plush versions of pot stickers - the little steamed or fried dumplings you can get at any Chinese restaurant. They're based on the popular Wee Sticker plush by Shawnimals. Plush never tasted so cute!

What do you get?

Each Pocket Pork take-out box is signed and numbered, and comes packed with three two-and-a-half-inch wide Pocket Porks, a button and a sticker. All this priced at a low $10 per box! There are 100 total boxes available, and five different Porks in the series: Standard Sticker, Veggie Sticker, Spicy Sticker, Stealth Sticker and an undisclosed uber-rare chase variety. Collect them all! Will you find the special character?
