Thanks to Pokémon’s classic “Gotta catch ém all!” mantra, I fancy myself a bit of a collector. Anyone who’s seen my amiibo shelf will call that an understatement, not to mention that I have to have a designated amiibo shelf. But today we take a look at a couple of other items that just beg to be had and, more importantly during this time of year, to be given. Whether you need something small or something soft, both of these items, hailing from my personal first and of Nintendo’s most recent series, make great gifts for any Nintendo fan.
When it comes to knick knacks, I love things that can be interacted with. Keeping something engaging at my desk gives me a nice distraction that can still hold the focus needed for important tasks. That’s why I think the Kirby Tsumu Tsumu Set is a perfect gift for the work minded individual with a soft spot. With ten adorable, unique Kirbys and a Warp Star, you’re meant to stack and pose the little puff balls in creative and heart-melting ways. Want to have the group as a tower on Warp Star? Done. Need two mobs of Kirbys to have a tug of war over their (air) ride? You got it! Even outside of a workspace, they look great dotted around a shelf, tucked in alongside your game collection or other figures. Who knows, this time of year they might even find their way into the Christmas tree!
From work time to rest time, it’s nice to have something to comfort you after a long day. The Sanei Splatoon Cushion Plushes are the perfect way to mark your home turf, available in vibrant colors straight out of Nintendo’s award-winning shooter. While these guys are always going to be squids, they’ll evoke that sense of warmth of what being a kid is all about whenever you need it most. Whether you go Team Naughty or Nice, everyone can represent this great new IP by having the perfect place to rest your head after the upcoming Splatfest.Leave a Comment
