I remember when Pokemon first hit our shores, I was in high school and everyone loved it. From the people playing the computer game to those who liked the cartoon and the loveable characters.
It’s safe to say Pokemon is still going strong. Pokemon Go changed the face of mobile gaming and is definitely not just for the youngsters, one of my favourite customers at work always pops in to check his data allowances so he keep on hunting and he is in his sixties. You can now get a special Pokemon Go Plus device that you wear on wrist and will alert you when there is something nearby to catch without you having to have the game open, how cool is that.
Everyone knows Pikachu, he was definitely the star of the show and my sister’s fave and there is a lot you can get featuring him. I’m quite taken with the Pikachu Docking Station so I could wirelessly charge my phone on his back, it would look so much cooler than my plain black dock!
But there are so many other characters to discover too. L was sent a lovely plush toy, Popplio, he’s a Blue Sea Lion and I’ll be honest I don’t know much about him. L loves him. He woke me up very early this morning to tell me. ‘Mummy, mummy I loves him so much. He is soft and squishy and he can swim and do battle.’
These plush toys retail at around £9.99 and are the perfect way to introduce Pokemon to another generation.
Disclosure – we were sent our toy in exchange for an honest review
