To celebrate the new Nintendo Switch console, Jakks Pacific have launched a range of iconic Nintendo character plush toys. Both my children love all the Super Mario characters and the games. They were excited when they saw this cuddly Yoshi 7.5″ plush toy!
Yoshi is one of Ms C’s favourite characters and she has been eagerly waiting for one! He is really soft to touch with a semi-firm polyester fibre filled body that my daughter loves dearly. The facial details and overall look is very authentic to the video game character. The plush is very well stitched and bright in colours. He is small, lightweight and easy to carry around. Ms C has been taking him out to show to her friends and has accompanied her on our road trips. Yoshi is such a great companion. If he becomes dirty, simply hand wash and air dry it.
He is unable to stand unaided but simply pop a book underneath for him to sit on and he will be able to ‘stand’. This cute little fellow is a big hit for Nintendo fans! He will appeal to children, gamers and collectors alike. It is good quality toy and good value for money.
This World of Nintendo collectable plush toys also include Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach. The plush line also includes a variety of characters from upcoming games such as Pikmin, Zelda and Donkey Kong!
Did you know that across Europe, Nintendo Switch has sold more in its launch weekend than any other Nintendo hardware in history? Also the launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has not only been bestowed with some of the highest review scores in gaming history, it’s also the biggest-selling Nintendo launch title ever in Europe, even outselling Wii Sports in the first weekend sales. Personally I do not own a Nintendo Switch but why not check out my thoughts about the console when I went to their UK premiere.
