Plush Poké-Buddies

I now have three of my favorite Pokémon characters as plushies!

Eevee has got to be the cutest, most adorable critter of ’em all! While I like most of the "Eeveelutions" as well, this little furball’s top of the pile.

And Litten was my chosen starter for Pokémon: Sun, decided as soon as I saw (my) first "spoiler" image of what the three would be…despite some significant disappointment over not receiving a "pre-order with us and get this bonus poster!" poster from Gamestop (an employee insisted they were only for people who had pre-ordered BOTH Sun and Moon), I still wound up (at a different store!) snagging the plush Litten the next day.

And finally, closing out 2016, I came across the plush Snorlax, which fits as one of my other primary characters in Sun, that has been on my core roster without fail as the other five slots have seen a rotation.

Plushies, (in)action figures, a Nintendo 2DS, Omega Ruby, Sun, and X can really all be traced back to Pokemon Go for me, rekindling the dormant Pokémon interest back in early July.

New (Classic) Ninja Turtle Plushies

plush_tmnt_group_09062014In the spring, I happened across a large plush Ninja Turtle. Some sort of “pillow pal,” basically a large plushie/pillow. Initially I figured ok, I’ll just get the Leonardo one. But then decided I wanted to get Raphael. Having those two, I ended up pointedly tracking down Donatello and Michelangelo.

More recently I happened across a Donatello one styled after the “classic” ’80s cartoon series. Seeing the 2010 copyright date on the tag, I figured it was some one-off “leftover” that got found and tossed out into general stock, but was surely from a series that pre-dated the current animated series (which the “pillow pals” were based on).

Then I found a whole bunch of ’em and realized they were newer because of the movie out this year. And this time I got Raphael first, but then Leonardo. And once again, I’m now leaning heavily toward wanting the full set, as they do look quite different from the set I already got.

But time will tell, if I actually manage to find ’em, as I have yet to ever see them at any Target, and Walmart seems to think they’re only allowed to have anything out for a week before they have to completely stop carrying it…
