Pojo's Pokemon News
Loretta's Toy News -
June 26, 2006

I hit 4 different Targets over the weekend but only one had a NEW box of Pokemon beanies... I hunted around on the web (toy dealer site, e-Bay) and found these pix of the newbies:

Wow! The Pikachu holding an apple is quite novel; it reminds me of many Japanese plush I've seen. The embroidered details on the beanies (esp. Jigglypuff's multi-tonal eyes) are excellent; IMHO, superior to the stamped on designs of the original/early Hasbro beanies. I'll be hunting for Chikorita, as I only managed to score Pika, Jiggly and Nidorina.

As far as the 10th Anniversary DVD's with release dates noted as

6/6/2006 on the Amazon website, I have not found either Pika or Jiggly in stores yet. An in-person visit to a local Borders yielded "July 2006" on their in-store database! A delay? I wonder has anyone managed to receive a copy ordered via Amazon; their site claims the items are in stock and ready to ship...

More Bandai 10th Anniversary candy-toy figures are showing up in Japanese marketplaces; here's the set I saw on the shelf:

If you follow these closely, you'll notice the figures are in new poses; I scored the 3 Fire Red Leaf Green starters for my toy shelf... I really love the intro to their Pokemon product site! Yay 10th!

Origins is this weekend in Columbus, OH. A big Pokemon USA area is on their dealer room map! If you're in Central Ohio this week, this might be something to catch!

<party horn noise!> PIKA!

P.S. I forgot to mention, I did hit the Pokemon Center kiosk at the Cincinnati bash on the Friday before the event. It was awesome, but, I was a bit disappointed, they didn't have t-shirts (the contractor said they would be too hard to keep looking "neat"--I wonder, did they think, at other events I've attended, ONE t-shirt gets hung for display, the rest stay in a box behind the scenes and you ask for the size you need.......) and they were all out of 10th Anniversary plush and figures (the contractor said Pokemon Center was waiting for more to arrive from overseas--which could only mean they are selling like Pokemon hotcakes! http://www.marumiya.co.jp/product/0515/02.html.

That reminds me I found some new Pokemon corn soup
http://www.marumiya.co.jp/product/0515/07.html; Marumiya makes the best instant cream corn soup!!!! http://www.marumiya.co.jp/product/0515/08.html It has little Poke crackers! :).
