An adorable new set of Pikachu plushes are coming to Japan. The Japanese toy company Banpresto is releasing a series of eight Pikachu "Nebukuro" plushes, each of which feature the popular mouse Pokemon cuddling in one of eight different sleeping bags. Each sleeping bag design is based off of a different Pokemon, including Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Ditto and three Eevee evolutions.
The Banpresto plushes come in two different sizes. The Kanto starters, Ditto and Raichu sleeping bags will be 9.5 inches tall, while the Eevee evolutions will be about 5 inches tall.
Banpresto first released a set of sleeping bag Pikachu plushes, featuring Charizard, Ekans, and Eevee sleeping bags, last summer as part of a popular Pokemon Center lottery contest. While the original Banpresto plushes were extremely rare, these new Pikachus should be a little easier to obtain. Pokemon fans can win the plushes by playing claw machines in various Japanese arcades. The toys will be available at Japanese arcades beginning May 12.
