As I've seen previous projects with the Raspberry Pi being enclosed in stuffed animals and plushies. I've wanted to attempt a project in a similar environment. Will there be a problem with overheating the device when it's enclosed in such a tight location? My Raspberry Pi is already in a Geaux Robot case, so there's that to be considered.

    And here: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q/105/40. Short answer; there are no ventilation or cooling requirements. – Jivings Sep 24 '13 at 19:30
  • Therefore it's safe. The outside environment would be 100% room temperature for me, so It probably won't have a chance to overheat; I'll assume that placing metal eyelets for wire holes would count as more than sufficient ventilation. Thanks for the information. @goldilocks thanks :) – BJesso Sep 25 '13 at 4:38

The RPi is unlikely to be a problem. However if you insulate it well enough it will of course overheat eventually.

There will be a temperature gradient from the RPi to the out of the outside of you r Plushie.

This is a similar question to: Environmental Tolerance which has an answer regarding the temperature tolerance.
