October Wish List ’19

First of all, I REALLY struggled with this months wish list post. I feel like deep down there’s loads of shit I want but I just can’t think of it all to add to this months wish list.

I’ve dug as deep as I can possibly go and sadly this is the best I could come up with. Some of this stuff I do really want, but not that much that I have the urge to pick it up anytime soon. If anything, some of these items I’d actually like to receive as gifts for Christmas or birthday.

Alas, I needed to get my monthly post together… After all, it’s one of my favourites to write and put together! I love showing off all the crap I don’t need but want to buy. 😛

  • Snotgirl Volume 3 (link)

This is in fact something I’ve already pre-ordered! I love the Snotgirl comic series and I’ve waited about a year for the third volume to come out now. Crazy, right? Snotgirl is about a beauty blogger/influencer who looks gorgeous and perfect on the outside, but behind closed doors she suffers terrible allergies… Hence the name of the comic series. There’s some unexpected twists and turns however throughout the comic book series (which I won’t mention in case of spoilers) but honestly, as a blogger I love this series and recommend any bloggers out there to pick it up! 😀 I have to be honest though, the main character pisses me off, she’s such a bitch haha!

  • Hell Bunny Vixey Skirt (link)

I remember seeing a Hell Bunny advert on my Instagram and the dress the girl had on in the advert was gorgeous! I went onto the website in search of it… I had no luck! However, I did discover that Hell Bunny have a gorgeous new print out called “Vixey” which is mustard with foxes on! SOOOOO ME! They have a dress, as well and although I would love this, I do keep saying lately how I would like some more skirts in my wardrobe. I only have one and this alone is hardly worn… No reason why! I would like some more to add to my wardrobe, both for work and for personal. I’d love to team this up with a comfortable black jumper like the model is wearing, shirts and more! I might pick this up soon… It’d be nice to wear to Japan too with my Docs.

  • Luigi’s Mansion 3 on Nintendo Switch (link)

I would like this game (I even mentioned it last month on a post about games I’m excited for!) but I don’t know if I want it yet. It’s not a game I’m rushing out to buy, but I’d purely want to pick it up to play with Dane over the Halloween season and especially if we spend Halloween at home. It would just be fun to play, you know? As I’m off around the time of Halloween it would be nice to stay in for the evening and play this… I’ll see how I feel!

  • Stuffed Fables – An Adventure Book Game (link)

This isn’t something I plan to buy anytime soon and if anything it’s a board game I would much rather receive as a Christmas or birthday present. I’ve eyed this game up since 2018, but only of late have I really invested into it, learning how to play and even looking at heading to Dicebox to give it a go with Dane for a date evening. FYI I just went onto the website so I could link here on my blog and I didn’t realise that there’s a photo of me, Dane and Amy from Writing into the Ether there! How cool eh?! That aside, I do want this game, but considering its hefty price tag I want to make sure I like it first before buying…

  • Pokemon Center London – ALL THE GOODIES!

I almost forgot about going to the Pokemon Centre in London when it opens. Holy shit, HOW DARE I!!! Yeah I plan to potentially pick up some goodies from here, but it all depends. If I can pick up items that I know are available in Japan, I’ll buy them here to save on bringing/sending them back during out holiday. If there are any exclusive items that I know will only be available during the pop up shop in London, I may pick those up too. I won’t be picking up plushies, more stationary and household items. The Pokemon Centre are great for bringing out cookie tins/jars and I’ve only ever purchased (well gifted!) one from there, which I still love to this day. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for things like this. As of yet, no photos have leaked of any goods that will be for sale… Watch my blog though as I may post about it before I go!

That’s all the goodies I can think of sadly in regards to items I want to purchase this month. Honestly, I really struggled this month to come up with things for this list, but alas there are some things here!

What item(s) do you have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know in the comments, including if you’re excited for the Pokemon Centre in London! Are you planning to go?

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re ready for the weekend!

2019 Pokemon Collection Holiday Night Ichiban Kuji – YY Kawaii

I’m so excited to write this post today because I just want to show you guys how damn cute this collection is and was and why I’m so happy to have my hands on it!

I’ve wanted to take part in an ichiban kuji from Japan for the longest time, but I’ve always been so anxious to in case I paid loads for items and won the most basic of things. However, the Holiday Night collection from Pokemon was too damn cute to pass up and I have ZERO REGRETS!

I’ll not only be showing off items I bought/won but I’ll also be talking about what ichiban kujis are, how they work and even which ones YY Kawaii is selling at the moment, so if you fancy giving one a go yourself, you can!

I hope you enjoy this post today, I thought I would do something kawaii and cute, as I feel like I haven’t done that for ages. 🙂

Image result for pokemon collection holiday night

Image taken from sn.bpnavi.jp

I mean for a start, look how damn cute the promotional image is for the kuji!

First of all an ichiban kuji is a Japanese lottery that to the British can be related to a tombola you would get at a fête in the summertime. You win a prize every time but the prize depends on which letter you get on the ticket! All prizes have a letter assigned to them with A, B, C and D being the rarer and harder to get prizes and letters E, F and G being easier to obtain. Most kujis will also come with a “last one” prize, which you can win if you get the “last one” ticket. These are extremely rare!

I thought I would pop YY Kawaii’s video above as she explains in full what ichiban kujis are in more detail than I do and considering that’s who I purchased my kuji from, why not! 😀 Go and give her some love and make sure to mention me. ^_^

So when YY Kawaii advertised that she would be selling this kuji, I KNEW I had to take part! Tickets were priced at £11 each or 2 for £20.50. I loved everything the kuji had on offer so what did I have to lose?

I’ll link here what the kuji had on offer, as I don’t want to use the promotional photos if I can help it! When viewing the prizes though I had a few things in mind that I wanted to win, including the B prize which is a vanity case and prize D which is the travel set. I loved the other prizes too, but those stood out to me the most.

The prizes overall included three plushies (including the last one), vanity case, travel set, illustrated towels, zipper bags and plastic containers.

I bought two tickets and won two amazing prizes, BUT I also purchased one of the items that YY Kawaii had for sale.

I remember watching the live Instagram video of YY Kawaii revealing who had won what and I couldn’t believe it when I heard I had won the A prize, which is a Pikachu plushie, as well an illustrated towel!

I couldn’t believe it and was so excited when my goodies arrived in the post a few days later.

The Pikachu plushie is quite big to be honest and very sturdy, yet squish-able for cuddles. I’ve been cuddling this whilst sat at my gaming table as I write this post which is super comfortable. If it was acceptable I would totally take this to work to rest against whilst doing work.

This has been sitting on our bed as I honestly don’t know where else to keep it right now! I might just keep it for downstairs to cuddle against whenever I’m playing games or doing blog work. I especially love the pastel colours as it’s really relaxed and nothing too “obnoxious”, especially for the bedroom.

The second item I won was an illustrated towel, which is one of the more popular items you can win. I’m happy with winning this (even though I know many get disappointed with these sort of wins) as I love using the towels as face cloths/flannels. I wish I could have bagged the purple design, as it has a super cute sleeping Dragonite design on. If I can buy this design in the future, I will!

Then I mentioned I picked up one of the items from YY Kawaii, as I didn’t win it. This is the travel set. I KNEW I needed this in my life and I especially wanted it for my holiday to Japan, as well as for travelling anywhere to be fair.

It comes in a really cute box (which I don’t want to throw away!) and is a clear purple bag with images from the promotional photos on. You can see where the Pokemon are having a sleepover with the sat around on a rug reading books, sleeping, cuddling cushions and more. It also comes with three travel bottles with the 1st gen starter Pokemon on them. These are a very generous size too so my 2 weeks of supply of goods I would need to take with me would last for ages in these.

So that’s all the goodies I won and bought from the Pokemon Collection Holiday Night kuji through YY Kawaii!

Do I have any regrets with getting this kuji? If anything, I regret not buying more tickets. 😛 I also wish I could get the vanity case cheaper than it’s selling for right now, as this would be perfect to house stuff in for travelling, as well as in general. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for it in the future.

If you like the sound of ichiban kujis and want to have a go yourself, then please make sure to go and check out YY Kawaii’s Instagram pages YY Kawaii and YY Kawaii Merch to see what she has on offer and if you don’t see a kuji you’re interested in BUT are aware of, you can always drop her a message to enquire about it. Make sure to let her know I sent you! 😀

YY Kawaii also has some of the prizes for sale from this kuji, so make sure to go and check out her Instagram pages for those too! Again, make sure to let her know I sent you! 😀

Have you ever divulged into ichiban kujis from Japan? If so which one(s) have you taken part in? If you’ve never had a go yourself, do you think you’ll try your luck at a kuji? Make sure to let me know in the comments below!

OH P.S. I took all the photos in this post on my new camera! What do you guys think? I know they aren’t the best, but I’m still getting used to it. 😛

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely weekend. 🙂

August Wish List ’19

I really need to save. It’s so hard at the moment considering I’ve just had to fork out £250 for a part of my car to be replaced and erm… I kinda bought myself a new camera ready for Japan. Honestly I’m going to save up for Japan. I am. I NEED to otherwise I’ll be going to Japan with no sodding money to spend, or eat with. I have 5 months to go until we leave for the holiday and saving needs to happen NOW.

In all honesty though? I already really want at least 2 items on this wish list for work, as well as in general.

I will resist the urge and be good… I need to. 😛

Enough of me wallowing in poor pity, on with the wish list for August.

  • Aggretsuko Day/Night Pyjamas (link)

If there is one thing I love buying (and it’s definitely a weakness of mine!) it’s pyjamas and it’s purely because I live in them mostly when I’m at home. Providing I don’t have plans, as soon as I get home from work I’ll get my pyjamas on and get comfortable. These will be perfect for during the summer months, as at the moment I am just purely living in baggy t-shirts and night shirts. EMP has a pretty awesome Aggretsuko line up at the moment, including a couple of hoodies, pyjama bottoms and even some fake Converse.

  • Animal Crossing K.K. Slider Sticker by ncdoggGraphics (link)

I LOVE Animal Crossing and I am still stoked about the new one coming out on the Switch in March 2020. I love playing Pocket Camp daily and would love to grab some sort of Animal Crossing merch for when I’m in Japan. I love the “Yo” design of K.K. Slider and although I’ve added it onto this post as a sticker, I would rather love the hoodie or sweater design as I can only imagine it would so comfortable to wear around the house, as well as out and about when running errands.

  • Pokemon Holiday Night Kuji Travelling Pouch with Bottles (link)

This is something I’ve had my eye on getting (and in one case winning) since I saw it was announced a couple of months back. I took part in this kuji through YY Kawaii (yykawaiimerch over on Instagram). I’ll be talking about the prizes I won soon, as well as this travelling pouch, which arrived yesterday. Yes, I bought it because I want it for my holiday to Japan, as well as travelling in general. This is a good sized pouch and comes with three generous sized bottles that you can fill with your beauty essentials. I’m already planning what product I’m going to pop in there for travelling with. As I said, I’ll be writing a post all about these goods soon, as well as a little bit of information about kujis, how they work and which amazing ones YY Kawaii has coming up soon!

  • Aggretsuko Pencils (link)

I have discovered with my job that I love jotting down notes using pencil… I don’t know why, but I just have! I love Aggretsuko and since season 2 has come onto Netflix (also, they just announced season 3. Who else is excited?!) so I feel merchandise for this is becoming more and more likely everywhere. I don’t need any stationary anytime soon though to be honest. These would just be cool to have whenever I go into meetings and to perk my desk up a little. At the moment I’m using Pusheen pencils… I can’t complain. 😛

  • Cath Kidston Stanley Lamp (link)

This isn’t going to be something I buy anytime soon due to the price, but it’s a lamp I will be keeping a close eye on, as I would love it to be a part of my home. I don’t quite know where it would go… Potentially by the sofa in our living room… It’s so damn cute and I love it! I can only assume Stanley is the dog but it’s so gorgeous and you can see a lot of precision went into the design, as it’s just perfect. This is something I’ll keep my eye on during the sales.

  • Killstar Amaya Skater Dress (link)

I love a good skater dress, especially one from Killstar. This is from one of their new collections, which represents Japanese school style fashions and manga/anime designs too. This is something I’d love to be able to wear for work but due to the style of the dress (mostly the back with the hanging part) I doubt that would be doable… At least not during the warmer months when I don’t need to wear a cardigan, jumper or my work fleece. I’ll be keeping my eyes on it though, this is something I’ll definitely be picking up in the future.

  • Boohoo Cable Boyfriend Button Up Cardigan (link)

I know it’s summer and we in the UK are currently rocking the warm and muggy weather but I am already thinking ahead to the months when the colder weather will be back and I’ll be wanting to snuggle up into something during my shifts at work. My friend Amy (Writing into the Ether) rocks a gorgeous mustard cardigan and she’s inspired me get myself a mustard cardigan, after years of never bothering. I love my burgundy and mustard colours for autumn and winter, and whilst I own loads of mustard jumpers, I haven’t yet picked up a mustard cardigan. I’ve found this one from Boohoo, which I’m going to keep my eye on. I need to venture around more places first, including charity shops. I know what I’m looking for, super soft and baggy so I can be snuggled and cosy!

So those are the items on my wish list for August! I always worry my wish lists are boring, but you guys never seem to say anything other than the complete opposite!

What items do you guys have on your wish lists this month? Make sure to let me know! Hey, let me know which items you’ve picked up this month too!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a good week so far.

July Wish List ’19

Where did June go? I felt like it was only yesterday that I was preparing for a nice week off with Dane and then BAM HELLO IT’S JULY! Honestly though, how shite was June weather wise? It was well and truly awful to be fair and I’m glad we’re getting some nice sunshine right now. 🙂

I’m currently sat at my dining table with a gorgeous cup of Ed’s Coffee House caramel coffee and I’m planning on writing as much as I can before I need to head out later for a D&D session! This months wish list was pretty hard to be honest with you as I’m trying to be good right now due to Japan coming up, (I know it’s 5/6 months away but it will be here before we know it!) which is boring but meh.

Anyhoo – I hope your enjoy this months haul! I feel like there’s so much Japanese inspired stuff there. 😛

  • Vans x Lazy Oaf Old Skool Platform (No longer available)

I know these are limited edition and no longer available (unless you pay an absolute fucking fortune!) but I still want them. I regret not buying them so damn much when they came out last year. Like stupidly regret it. Recently I noticed someone was selling my size on eBay at a decent price. They looked legit and when the seller offered to knock £10 off – I bought them straight away. Over a week later I was chasing the seller for my shoes and ended up getting a refund. I was so pissed off… I really wanted the shoes, especially for such a bargain. I’m still on the hunt for these and if you happen to find any in a size 7 for a decent price (no more than £60 with postage!) please let me know! 🙂

  • Elfen Lied Omnibus Volume 1 (link)

I cannot tell you how happy I was when I recently discovered that this manga was coming out in English. Honestly my younger 16 year old self would have been over the moon with this coming out. Basically this manga has been running in Japan since 2002 – which is nearly 20 years ago now since it first came out. This was the first manga I read, as well as the first anime I watched. Elfen Lied is pretty much what got me into the things I am today, which is amazing to be honest with you so it really does mean the world to me to finally see the manga in English.

Now you’re probably wondering, “Okay hang on Nat! You said you’ve read the manga… But it’s only just come out in English? How did you read it then?” The magic of translation my friends! 😛 Someone translated it years ago online so I remember when I bought my first laptop 10 years ago (FUCK I FEEL OLD!) I found the manga on a PDF reader and basically flicked back and forth over the pages, reading it. 😛

It looks like there will be four omnibus volumes overall, which the second one due out in October. I would love to see the anime redone – just like they’ve done with Fruits Basket recently. I’d still love to see Elfen Lied Nendoroid’s released too. 😛

  • Pokemon Holiday Night Collection Ichican Kuji (link)

This is a kuji I’ve decided to do! I’ve never done one before to be perfectly honest with you so this will be a first! It just looks too good to resist having a go on. I’ve regretted not taking part in some of the Animal Crossing kujis in the past and that in itself annoys me. I’ve got this through YY Kawaii on her Instagram merch page (link and link) and the prizes are adorable! There’s a couple of plushies, some holiday travelling essentials, pots and towels. It makes a change seeing some “useful” items in a kuji as opposed to the usual charms, towels and random figures. I really hope I get some good pulls from this!

  • Insert Coin Clothing Persona 4 Teddie Pocket Tee (link)

I’ve already pre-ordered this tee, but I just had to mention it here today as it’s too good not to! 😀 I LOVE Persona 5, as my readers all know and I have had a go at Persona 4 Golden (which I am currently stuck on!) which I also really love. I’m reading the Persona 4 manga too, which I actually enjoy more than the game… But this may be due to the fact I’m stuck on it… 😛 Either way I saw the cute Teddie pocket tee and just knew I had to have it! I recently bought myself an amazing black pair of mom jeans from New Look and I intend to wear them together loads throughout the summer, as well as the rest of the year. 😛 Of course I would be a fool not to wear this to Japan too.

When this tee arrives – I’ll definitely be doing a post on why I love Insert Coin Clothing’s tees so much! I have this one, as well as their Persona 5 Morgana tee too.

I noticed this mug was going around my Twitter feed about a week or so ago and honestly I have fallen in love with it and I really need it in my life. I really don’t need anymore mugs, but if I didn’t pick this up I would honestly be a fool and regret it until I did. I LOVE Animal Crossing and as an ex barista I also love the coffee theme of the mug. It was always one of my favourite parts of Animal Crossing: New Leaf to daily go and work my shift at The Roost Cafe, as well as sit and drink some pigeon coffee. It looks like the mugs will go on sale on Sarah Dandh’s store on 10th July – so I’ll be making sure to pick one up. 😛

Finally we have one of my favourite independent artists out there, who has done it again with her recently Kickstarter campaign! 😀 As soon as I saw she was going to be adding Animal Crossing designs to the campaign, I put myself down for two pins and it will be both KK Slider and Isabelle who I opt for. I actually already have an Isabelle pin by Ohayou! but it won’t hurt to have another one, will it? I don’t have a KK Slider as of yet and look how damn cute this boi is! I honestly can’t wait to get these already as I’ll wear them together on my jacket(s) as well as potential ita bag in the future. This campaign has now finished, BUT Ohayou! is a good egg and will probably have them for sale in her store anyway. 😛

So that’s my wish list for July! Again, I honestly cannot believe we are over halfway through 2019 now. It’s scaring me as not only does it mean I’m getting closer to being 30 but it also means it’s closer to us going to Japan and I am SO nervous for that!

Which items do you have on your wish lists this month? Do you have your eye on any of the items I have too? Make sure to let me know in the comments below! 😀

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week, almost the weekend now, eh?

YY Kawaii – I’m A Brand Affiliate

Good evening my gorgeous readers, I hope you’re all well!

I feel like I’ve started today’s post off different than how I usually do, but it doesn’t hurt to have a change every now and then, does it?

As you may have already guessed from the title, I have some VERY exciting news to share and I honestly cannot wait to talk about it.

YY Kawaii is one of my favourite stores, purely because they sell loads of amazing Japanese anime (and gaming) merchandise goodies that I always flock to them for. They have some of the best prices around for the UK and are really friendly. If you don’t see something they sell, you can always ask them and you’ll get a straight forward answer. They’re always honest about pricing upfront and will let you know if an item is going to be really expensive before you commit to anything.

YY Kawaii is somewhere I go to for mainly Nendoroid figures and Persona 5 and Pokemon related merchandise BUT they sell so much more than just these. Off the top of my head they sell a lot of Sanrio, Love Live, My Hero Acadamia, Hatsune Miku, Sailor Moon and more. Those are just to name a few.

I’ve mentioned YY Kawaii on my blog so many times, through blog posts dedicated to them as well as through mentions on wish list posts. If you fancy checking out some of the posts I’ve written about them on my blog, then check out the link below:

A Mini YY Kawaii Haul

YY Kawaii Collective Haul

Not only do YY Kawaii have their website but they have their Instagram pages YY Kawaii and  YY Kawaii Merch, which is where they sell from too. I buy from both, but more often than not I do but through their YY Kawaii Merch page.

So what does it mean to be a brand affiliate? Well basically I get to do the same stuff I do anyway! Talk about this brand I love, but a little bit more than before. I’ll be trying to write more blog posts about YY Kawaii and what new stock they have out to pre-order, an example being Nendoroid’s and Pokemon and Persona 5 merchandise that month that I’ll recommend to my readers to go and check out. If there is any merchandise in particular from Japan that you would like to see on my blog then let me know and I can try and talk about that stuff more too. A big example of this could be Sailor Moon and Sanrio as I know so many people who love both of these.

As well as that I’ll be doing some more promotion on my blog Instagram page too (@theremightbecoffeeblog) as well as through Facebook groups.

At the time of this post I don’t have a discount code that I can share with my lovely readers, but in the future this is a possibility! As and when this happens I’ll be sharing it on both my Instagram and Facebook pages – as well as sticking said discount code on my blog too, so keep eyes peeled for that!

So when does my brand affiliation start? 1st June, so just over 2 weeks time! I am somewhat nervous because I want to do the brand justice. I feel like I have a big pair of boots to fill, especially as I’ll be on a trial session for a couple of months so I just want to make sure I do the best I can! 😀

The only thing I ask from my readers is support… In the sense of if there is something you would like me to talk about to do with YY Kawaii, please tell me! I will be more than happy to share Nendoroid’s they stock if you have any in mind. Maybe you’re interested in having a go at Japanese Ichiban Kuji but can’t travel to Japan to give one a go? That’s okay because YY Kawaii do them sometimes! They have some coming up soon, so I would be more than happy to talk about these for example.

Although I have linked back to both YY Kawaii’s website and Instagram pages, I’ll link everything down below too, including social media pages:

Website

Instagram – @yykawaii and @yykawaiimerch

Facebook

Twitter

So my main question to you guys have you shopped with YY Kawaii before? If so please let me know what you bought! If you’ve never shopped with them before, do you think you will? If so what would you pick up? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

I know this is a short post today, but after I found out this lovely bit of news late last week, I just couldn’t wait to share it with you guys! I for one am so excited to be a brand affiliate for a brand I love to bits… Even if it is only for a couple of months. 🙂

Until next time, I hope everyone had a great weekend and that you’re all enjoying the gorgeous weather at the moment. It’s glorious and well deserved for us lot in the UK 😛

Wish List Wednesday – Detective Pikachu

I decided today was a day for a wish list! I understand I’ve had two wish lists in a row now, technically with my monthly wish list being the post before this one BUT there is a reason for that! Detective Pikachu is out in just a couple of days and I cannot express enough how excited I am for this film. Remember my excitement for Deadpool and Deadpool 2? Yeah? I have that excitement ALL OVER AGAIN but now it’s with Detective Pikachu! I can’t express my excite right now. I booked the tickets for me and Dane for this film bloody weeks ago, so much so that I kept my eye on the “book now” button to show. I know that’s sad, but whatever. It’s the little things.

So due to this excitement of mine, I knew I had to do a wish list Wednesday post. I don’t feel like I’ve done one for quite sometime (checked, it’s been over 4 months now…) so meh why not. 😛

As I’m writing this I’ve just broken up from work for the bank holiday and I am hella excited! I don’t plan to do anything really for the next couple of days and I’m okay with that.

This post will include items you can buy in the UK, as well as from Japan. I’ll link to stores as well as sellers who can get you the goodies you may want to bag from Japan. I also want to put it out there that whilst this is a wish list post, I’m also going to write about items that I don’t wish for myself, but know other people will be interested in!

I really hope you guys enjoy this post and are as excited for Detective Pikachu as I am! 😀

  • Detective Pikachu Missing T-Shirt (link)

I’m naughty – this t-shirt hasn’t just featured on this wish list but it’s also on my monthly wish list for May too (which you can see here, alongside other goodies!) so yeah two items in a row… Sorry, not sorry. 😛 I’ve actually bought this now as I really love the design on the t-shirt itself. It’s so damn cute and I can already see myself wearing it with mom jeans and my 101 Dalmatians Vans on Friday when I go and watch the film. I bought this from EMP who have LOADS of Detective Pikachu designs available. I just happened to prefer this one to the others. They do both t-shirts for men and women so make sure to go and check them out.

  • Detective Pikachu Mug With Personalised Message (link)

I love this mug so much and if it wasn’t for the fact I have SO MANY mugs in my house I think I would have ordered this one by now. I assume the person selling it on Etsy designed the images of Detective Pikachu but I love the cute little poses he’s doing. I wish this was a takeaway mug as I think I would have bought it for work if that was the case. I’ll see how long I can withstand without this mug in my life. 😛

Of course as a massive Pokemon fan I HAD to order this! First of all I’ll let you know it wasn’t cheap, but after seeing photos of it I’m pretty damn glad I decided to order it. It’ll be arriving towards the end of May and I honestly can’t wait to share it with you! This is a Pokemon Centre exclusive and as the title reads, is a lifesize plush, so it’ll be pretty big when it arrives. I don’t honestly have a clue what I’m going to do with it yet… I’ll probably keep it in our bedroom with the massive Totoro plush Dane bought me for our second Christmas together.

  • Build A Bear Psyduck Bundle (link)

Although I love my Eevee and Vulpix Build A Bear plushies – I don’t intend to pick up anymore Pokemon Build A Bear’s in the future. This is due to the fact there just aren’t any I want, which in all honesty includes the two new ones they’ve brought out to coincide with Detective Pikachu. However, although I don’t want them I know quite a few people who will! I like how they’ve brought out Psyduck to be honest with you as I know quite a lot of people love this Pokemon from it being Misty’s back in the day on the original series. You can buy the bundle on the website and get loads of goodies for the Psyduck, or just the Psyduck alonge instore. They’ve also brought out the Snubbull plush from the movie.

  • Detective Pikachu on Nintendo 3DS (link)

I remember around this time last year the Nintendo 3DS game came out for Detective Pikachu only for the film to be announced not long after. I’ve put the game in here because if you plan to go and watch the film then I recommend you play the game before/after you’ve watched it. Especially if you LOVE the film! I’m glad I played the game beforehand but I do worry I’m going to make loads of comparisons between the two, but I’ll try not to. I really did love the game though and I’m sure you will too if you wanted to have a go!

Not going to lie, I actually regret not ordering these for Dane when I ordered my lifesize Detective Pikachu plushie. I might go and try to order these for him still as a little anniversary gift. They’re one size men’s boxers and they look bloody amazing! These aren’t the cheapest in the world (looking around £15 for these) for what they are BUT for what they are they’re cool to own at least. As I said, I might just get these for Dane as an anniversary present.

  • Detective Pikachu Movie Inspired Enamel Pins by Eat Your Pins (Kickstarter link)

The last item(s) I want to talk about on this post is actually a Kickstarter that came up just 4 days ago so I thought I would give them a mention here as their pins seem adorable. The Kickstarter campaign is available until 22nd May 2019 and there are loads of different pin designs to choose from and all of them are to do with the new Detective Pikachu movie. Go and check them out!

So those are my choices for this Detective Pikachu wish list today! I hope you enjoyed reading it and even spot some bits and pieces you like the look of. If you want to check out more of the exclusive Pokemon Centre merch then head over to YY Kawaii Merch Instagram page! That’s who I always order my Japan merchandise from.

Anyhoo I hope if you’re going to watch Detective Pikachu that you really enjoy the film and make sure to hit me up online to let me know what you think of it! I am beyond excited to go on Friday night. Me and Dane are planning a little date night for it, which I can’t wait for. 🙂

I hope you’ve all had a lovely week so far and until next time, take care all!
