It’d be hard not to choose the new Pokémon Air toy that lets you ride around on an inflatable rubber Pikachu. While it’s designed for kids, many adults can also catch a ride, as it can handle up to 220 pounds sitting on it.
According to the Japanese site grape, “It can also be used as a pillow, miniature chair, or as simple as some Pokémon-themed room decor.”
However you want to use your Pokémon Air, it costs 7,500 yen (about $71.55) and you can begin ordering on October 1. The toys are meant to ship in November and they are sold by the JAM store.
And if you want more Pokémon-themed stuff in your home, the list is almost endless: don’t forget the washable fluff toys, the Pikachu “Roomba,” and the Pikachu sneakers (complete with ears and tail). And there’s even stuff out there for a Pokémon themed wedding.
