Banjo-Kazooie wasn’t shy about being a little odd, but over 20 years later and I still don’t know what a Jinjo is. Described once by Jon Lovitz as “cute little whatevers“, all I’ve ever needed to know is that collecting them leads to Jiggys. Looks like Fangamer took that to heart, as they’ve released a multi-colored collection of plushes dedicated to these sad souls.
*Whistles in your direction* LOOK! @Fangamer have launched two new Banjo-Kazooie lines – a terrific Tote Bag and a palette of squishable Jinjo Plushes that won't shout for help every five seconds! Here's a handy link, should anything take your fancy: https://t.co/PomT0ZEFq1 pic.twitter.com/92vzRkSXpp

Now you can gather up the five original Jinjo colors in plush form, their eyes having that extra bit of googly to up the cuteness. They’re $24 each, though buying more than one will let you save as a bundle, to the point all five cost $89.
If you need to transport your new Jinjo (or Jiggys, notes, eggs, feathers, eekum bokums, etc.) you can also pick up a new Banjo-Kazooie tote bag. Marked with a glorious B-K and puzzle piece, it’s no blue backpack but it’ll get the job done. It’s available for $19.
