A bit disappointed I missed the Pokémon Center Squishmallows drop while I was at work last week, but otherwise I’ve enjoyed reasonable success hunting other holiday goodies. Target and Five Below have had a nice selection of winter/holiday themed Pokémon figures, but it was this elusive Ash and Pikachu figure set by Jazwares, which is parent company of KellyToy/Squishmallows, that caught my attention while Squishmallows hunting today! Battle Feature Figure apparently allows Ash to launch Pikachu, and this is the first time since Jazwares took over the Pokémon toy license in the US that I’ve seen Ash and Pikachu as a set outside of a big, boxed collection at Target. This exciting find was from Meijer’s toy aisle, it was the only one there and someone had dropped it well down the aisle from the other Pokémon toys. I quickly grabbed it before heading to get a few groceries. Hopefully, Pokémon Squishmallows will make their way to regular retail soon, after being a fan since 1999, I would enjoy having a Pikachu Squishmallows!
Happy holiday shopping! Pika!
