I’d like to try something new for kuji sets that I don’t plan on playing myself. This is still in the beta phase so all comments/suggestions are welcome ^^
Purchase Kuji Plays: For a small fee, I will play this kuji for you and send you the prizes! Price list is as follows:
1 Play: $13
2 Plays: $12 each
3-4 Plays: $11 each
5-9 Plays: $10 each
10+ Plays: $9 each
Shipping & Handling will be a separate fee and will vary depending on the weight of the item(s) and the country its traveling to. Please note that items are shipped from Japan. Payment for the kuji plays must be received in advance. Shipping rates will be calculated afterwards.
Disclaimer: I cannot guarantee which prize(s) you will get as kuji pulls are completely random (this is a lottery system). You may receive all lower level prices, all higher level prizes, or a mix of both. This is the risk all players take 🙂
If you have any questions, please let me know 🙂 Contact me if interested!
July 26 was a busy day at the Pokemon Center. Not only was the new Pikachu Gummi collection released but there were also some new surprise updates! Most of the merchandise from the Pikachu Gummi collection can be purchased here, while supplies last.
These mochi mochi cushions are sooooo soft. I was very suprised to see how soft they are. If you’ve ever had mochi before, you can get an idea of how soft/plush they are 🙂 Even picking it up feels like it’s melting away in my hand.
Next up are some new stationary goods, including a cute notebook and new washi tape set. There are also 4 new frixion pens, but I think I forgot to snap a picture of them 😡
And for all the girls, there are hair ties, hair clips, and a new folding mirror that’s perfect for home or on-the-go use.
As with most collections, you need to have socks! How cute are these? Now you can travel with Pikachu gummis wherever you go. There also are new earrings, but it’s a tad difficult to see them in the photo.
You can also spice up any room with these gel gems. They’re designed to stick on windows to brighten up your day 🙂
The new iPhone 5/6 case is designed to look like a candy bag, I almost want to eat it! There is also a new acrylic pass holders designed for train passes.
This new bag is perfect for traveling, I almost bought one myself but I’m a bit short on cash lately. Also, I have a bad habit of buying too many bags and rarely using them so I had to pass.
Last are bag charms and mascot figure charm. The mascot figures come in 3 colors (like on the bag charm). Also not pictured is a suitcase. Overall I really like this collection. It’s super cheery and I think perfect for summer.
Every now and then, the Pokemon Center comes out with a few surprise releases. There were quite a few this weekend.
First up are some new key chains featuring Pikachu, Mew, Lucario, Zygarde Core, Mega Charizard X, Mega Charizard Y, and Ash’s Greninja.
There’s also more kuttari merchandise! This time in keychain form. Each keychain comes with 3 different kuttari Pokemon. The kuttari set keychains can be purchased here.
I’m not really sure if these Pokeballs plushes are a new release or if they are a restock but they’re now available at the Pokemon Center for a limited time.
There’s a new Pikachu plush! This is a 1:1 size Pikachu plush so it’s almost as good as having the real thing 🙂 There are 2 designs to choose from.
More socks! I love these new Eeveelutions socks. They can be purchased here in sets of 3.
Aside from the Eeveelutions, you can also choose from Pikachu, Charizard, Ash’s Greninja, Lucario and Goomy. There’s also Ditto but for some reason, he didn’t make it into the picture ._.
I took a short a video of most of the new merchandise released this weekend, as well a couple others. I hope you enjoy the mini Pokemon Center tour 🙂
I’m so excited for all the new and upcoming Pokemon releases even though it will kill my wallet! On June 21, the adorable I LOVE PIKACHU+ Pichu plush released (following the Raichu release on June 7) and also a large Master ball cushion release (following the Pokeball cushion release on May 26).
I missed out on the Pokeball release back in May since it was a bit difficult to get so I had to get one this time around. It took about 17~19 tries but totally worth it I think. The cushion measures about 35 cm (13.8 in)!
More from the I LOVE PIKACHU+ collection comes this Pichu plush (approx. 23 cm)! These plushes are designed to have bigger heads and in a laying down position. The Pichu plushes are available for purchase here if you’re interested 🙂
Sometimes I go a little overboard with playing but can you blame me? 🙂 Raichu plushes are available for purchase here.
