Pokemon Go and Pokemon Sun and Moon raised the popularity of the brand to new levels. Now toy makers are racing with new stuffed animals and toys like TOMY.
The Pokemon franchise has long needed some proper stuffed animals. According to Slashgear, these new stuffies tick all the right boxes.
TOMY has sent the online magazine some of its latest Pokemon toys. Among them it the new Eevee stuffed animal which the company says is of superbly high quality. “The stitching on this stuffed animal is amongst the best we’ve ever seen on a stuffed animal – ever”, the magazine said.
The quality comes at a price, though. In this case – a mere $11. TOMY has put in some effort to make the stuffies look as close to the original characters as possible, which is also a big plus.
Slashgear also shows off the new Throw ‘n’ Pop Poke Ball toy. Basically, this is a working Poke Ball which you throw and it ejects the hidden pokemon.
It comes in four versions. One is the original Pokeball with Pikachu. Then you have three characters from Pokemon X and Y – Chespin with a Premier Ball, Fennekin with a Great Ball and Froakie with an Ultra Ball.
Each Throw ‘n’ Pop Poke Ball costs about $13. All of the toys are already out in the stores. And what’s more, TOMY is planning on expanding the toy line with more characters depending on the interest of the fans.
