Petty Bones Club – New Poke Pins AND a New Petty Babe*

The beaut that is Lauren over at Petty Bones Club has done it again. She has created yet MORE gorgeous Pokemon pins and I’m going to show them all off to you!

I’m also going to talk a little about the new Petty Babe that recently joined the team, as well as Claire Likes To Doodle, who is also a Petty Babe.

Petty Bones Club recently held a search for a new Petty Babe and she settled on Catherine (peachy.pink.cat on Instagram) to be our new recruit! Her feed is gorgeous and I love it so much. She’ll be perfect for promoting Petty Bones Club and I cannot wait to work alongside her.

I’ve spoken about Claire Likes To Doodle on my blog before, who is also a Petty Babe! She’s amazing at artist and all around honest and lovely person. 🙂

Make sure to go and check them both out on Instagram and show them some extra love for me.

Now it’s time to show you all some of the new designs that have hit Petty Bones Club recently. Honestly, I’m so excited to share them with you all!

I feel when Lauren designed this Pokemon drop, she was going for chunky girls and boys… I’ve never seen a cuter Charizard pin, I tell you!

I actually purchased the Charizard pin myself as I just loved it so much! I’ve been wearing it on my new Persona 5 Ann hoodie from Insert Coin clothing (well, when it hasn’t been too warm anyway!) and have received loads of comments on it.

Flame Chonk is the Charizard pin I purchased which comes in both the normal colour, as well as the Shiny Flame Chonk. A part of me wishes I have purchased the latter, but either way I do love my chubby boi. It’s so damn cute, which Charizard really isn’t! This pin has certainly had many comments, especially on the fact Petty Bones Club has made Charizard look so gentle and not as frightening as it appears in the anime (and sometimes the games). This is something I really do love about Lauren. She can make anything look kawaii and pastel, even the shiny variant!

The last Pokemon pin drop that Petty Bones Club did, an Ampharos was released, which I still LOVE as I feel you don’t get many Ampharos pins and this one was so chubby and cute (you can read and see that pin here)! So what has Petty Bones Club released now? Mareep, the Electric Sheep* Pokemon. I have fond memories of Pokemon Silver, purely as it’s the one Pokemon game that I dedicated all my time to. I played that game for around 5 years until the cartridge broke and I lost EVERYTHING. I was gutted and I still am to be fair. Mareep was a Pokemon I remember seeing on the promos everywhere and I KNEW I had to have it in my party. Which is why Ampharos is also one of my favourite Pokemon. This pin is adorable and looks so squishy and cuddly and of course has an adorable little face too. I honestly love it!

I don’t think anything will top Charizard the Flame Chonk as my favourite pin in this drop, but the Dragonair Dragon Elegance* pin is pretty damn close! Another of my favourite Pokemon’s is Dragonite and always has been since the first Pokemon Movie where we saw Dragonite delivering Ash and the gang some post and then flying off. I couldn’t wait to get one into my party in Pokemon Red and Yellow (they were the games I opted for) so when I played Pokemon Silver and Lance walks around for a split second with a Dragonite, I was in love and also done at the same time. 😛 This pin is all around cute. I love how Dragonair is all wrapped up in it’s tail, it looks lovely and seems to be the perfect pin to wear in winter due to the colour scheme. I really do love it and I cannot wait to wear it soon!

Next we have the last pin from this Pokemon release, which is Swablu the Fluffy Blue Birb*. I’ve mentioned a lot here how a lot of Pokemon in this months drop remind me of my favourite Pokemon and game(s), however I never played the original 3rd gen games and I’m still gutted about that to this day. All Swablu reminds me of is Pokemon Go and even then it semi annoys me due to all the sods I had to catch in order to evolve it! I kid, this is a hella cute pin and if anything makes the original Pokemon design look so much cuter… In my opinion anyway! The shiny variant of this is so cute and it would be cool if possibly in the future Petty Bones Club released this.

Finally we have the Pokemon Ash* pin which is super cute and tiny in comparison to the other pins. This isn’t a part of the latest drop and I actually feel it’s from a couple of pin drops previously! Ash just reminds me of my childhood. Waking up at 9am in preparation to watch SMTV: Live with the first show being Pokemon. I loved it and although Ash is an annoying little shit, he’s adorable at the same time.

Overall, I honestly love this Pokemon pin drop and to be honest with you? It’s by far my favourite to date and I crave more kawaii, chubby and pastel Pokemon pins from Petty Bones Club now! 😀

All pins mentioned here cost £8 each. expect the Ash pin which costs £4, however if you use my discount code COFFEE10 you will snag yourself a cheeky 10% off of your order! If you worry you’ve read this post and then a few days later you want to snag yourself something, but can’t remember the code, don’t panic! The code is ALWAYS on the right hand side of my blog! I’m looking after you all, don’t worry. 😛

As always, a massive thank you to Petty Bones Club Lauren for making me a Petty Babe. It’s the first time I was given the chance to be a brand ambassador and for that, I am truly thankful for that opportunity.

Petty Bones Club – More New Pokemon Pin Designs*

Good afternoon all! I hope you’re all well and have had a lovely weekend so far. I can’t believe we’re almost into May already! 2019 is definitely whizzing by.

It’s been less than four months and already the talented and lovely Lauren over at Petty Bones Club got in touch with me recently to ask if I wanted to be sent her new pins to talk about on my blog! As regular readers will know I’m a brand rep for Petty Bones Club and have been since August 2018 – which makes it 8 months now! I can’t quite believe it’s been so long already. I love it so much though! I love being a brand rep for such an amazing designer and pin badge company, especially one that designs pin badges I love. In all honesty, I feel like it was down to Petty Bones that really got me into purchasing pin badges. Their Studio Ghibli pins under their old name Ayloulou Apparel were what kick started my love for enamel pin badges and collecting them, so I honestly cannot thank Lauren enough for that. 🙂

I’m so excited to share these new designs from Petty Bones Club today and I’ll even be showing off some old designs. This will make sense when it comes down to it.

Anyhoo, let’s get on with the post! I can’t wait to share these gorgeous designs with you all. Of course all these pin badges were gifted to me for reviewing purposes. Any without * were purchased by myself.

Overall Lauren sent me 5 pin badges with one of the designs being an older design that has finally made it’s way back onto the store.

This pin is the Messenger Bulbasaur* who is one forth of the messenger Pokemon designs that were brought out last summer. The first gifted package I received from Lauren contained two of the other Pokemon designs, which I’ve spoken about on my blog before. Bulbasaur is gorgeous and he did very well sales wise when he first came out. I’m pleased he has returned to the store because he’s just such a cutie. I know so many who have stickers of him, but want pin badges. If you’re one of those people MAKE SURE TO GO AND ORDER HIM NOW before he sells out again!

I grabbed the other two messenger Pokemon designs so I could show them all off together and compare them all. They’re all holding their letters, each in a different way. Bulbasaur is holding his in his mouth, Charmander* in his hand and Squirtle* is happily clutching onto his. I love how happy Bulbasaur looks with his letter and I understand why everyone loves him so much out of the original starter Pokemon. He just looks so happy! The thing I love the most about these three designs together is how they’re all different coloured metals. Bulbasaur is gold, Charmander is rose gold and Squirtle is silver. It works really lovely together and these would work great on a bag or even your favourite jacket or coat.

The last one I need now is the Dragonite design! He’s so cute but sadly he isn’t available to buy anymore so unless he is remade – I won’t be adding him to my collection anytime soon.

The next pin badge is one that has been around for a while and I remember first seeing it on one of Petty Bones Club Kickstarter’s back in July 2018. I remember wanting to back this campaign but I wasn’t really much of a user of the website at the time so never did. This saddens me as I LOVED the Eevee PokeScout design. It did come back out for their other Kickstarter campaign but at the time I wanted the Officer Growlithe enamel pin more – so again I never got chance to pick Eevee up and I doubt I will now.

Part of that PokeScout collection was the Sailor Snorlax* enamel pin. I don’t own any Snorlax pin badges and whilst I don’t know if I’d ever pick one up, I do really love Petty Bones Club take on Snorlax, especially with making it a PokeScout! I don’t think it is something you would expect to see and due to that I love it so much! This is a gold metal too, which I think is the best for this design. Any other metal colour wouldn’t have worked as well.

The next design is the only one with a silver metal which is the Lapras* enamel pin. I feel like I’ve hardly seen any Lapras pins around and this one is adorable! The silver stands out to me straight away as it works so well with the design. The colour palette and Lapras’s face just reminds me of when I was younger and received my own Lapras in Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow. This pin badge will be one I wear throughout the summer for sure! Especially when attending barbecues and drinks with friends.

This is definitely my favourite pin out of the bunch Lauren sent me as it’s one of my favourite Pokemon. This pin is the Ampharos* enamel pin. I remember months ago on the Petty Bones Club Instagram page where she was coming up with ideas for the new Pokemon pins and this was one of them. I loved the concept back then and I LOVE it now it’s in pin form.

Finally we have the last pin of the five I was sent is the Arcanine* enamel pin, which I can only imagine is one of Lauren’s favourite designs seeing as this is her favourite Pokemon. I remember when she was designing it and showing it off via Instagram that she stated he’s her favourite! At least I hope my memory is correct here. 😛 The Arcanine pin is MASSIVE and due to this the price of it is a little more than the others at £10. I think this is fair though considering the size of the pin, I’ve tried to compare the size of it to her other pins as well, which I’m sure the pictures show off well. The metal is rose gold which is perfect for this pin badge. I love the size of it as I feel loads of detailing would have been missed out if this pin was smaller.

I put this pin alongside my Officer Growlithe enamel pin as I feel like they work so well together! I’d definitely wear them together for blog events and especially for comic cons.

All of the pins I was sent come with rubber clutches and two backing posts. Apart from the Arcanine pin these all cost £8 each.

Overall I LOVE all of these pin badge designs from Petty Bones Club and they’re so unique and different, which is what I always love about the store. I especially love how Lauren chooses the best metal colours to match the designs of the Pokemon.

I have to say my favourites out of the five are Bulbasaur and Ampharos. They’re just gorgeous and I honestly cannot wait to wear them around this summer. I plan to visit loads of conventions this year as well as do more geeky adventures so these pins will be perfect for that! 😀

Don’t forget I have a discount code for Petty Bones Club with you can use to bag yourself off a nice 10% off of your order. The code is COFFEE10 which you can also always find on the sidebar of my blog so don’t worry if you ever loose the code, it’s always there. 🙂
