Pokémon Squishmallows always create quite the stir. In fact, they usually sell out in minutes flat, causing fans to go on real like Pokémon journeys in order to catch ’em all. So, if you’re a big fan of the Pokémon Squishmallows, we suggest you get your Poké Balls and coins in order because two new Pokémon Squishmallows are heading our way. Next in this soft collectible line-up, we’ll get a Holiday Pikachu (complete with Santa hat), a Piplup Squishmallow, and a Winking Pikachu Squishmallow.
Obviously, just one kind of Pikachu Squishmallow isn’t enough. We need at least three varieties of this squishy friend. And Piplup seems like a great choice to join the ranks of Pokémon Squishmallows. Just look at that face. Nothing says adorable like huge eyes and little wings. We’re ready to snuggle this one already. And it’s nice to have a different type of Pokémon in the mix.
Of course, nothing says festive like Pikachu. On Pokémon Go, Pikachu often dons many hats to celebrate different occasions, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring this Santa hat-clad holiday Pikachu Squishmallow into the fold.
Although Squishmallows is happy to tease us with these new Santa Pikachu, Piplup, and Winking Pikachu stuffed animals, they’re less forthcoming with when we should expect them to appear in stores. We suspect, though, we’ll find out more sometime soon. Holiday Pikachu will, of course, need to join us by December. Most likely pre-orders for this Pokémon Squishmallow will begin sometime in the fall. To date, Pokémon Squishmallows have come in 10-inch, 14-inch, and 20-inch varieties. The most expensive of the Squishmallows to date, 20-inch varieties of Pikachu and Gengar have cost $44.99. That’s not too bad for something so cute.
As we wait for new friends, hug the Pokémon Squishmallows you’re lucky enough to have caught already and get some room ready on the shelf.
