Here are a few of my favorite things: Nintendo, Penny Arcade, The Legend of Zelda, Mario, Pokemon, Harvest Moon, Fallout, Dungeons and Dragons, books, dice, Professor Layton, Shadow of the Colossus, Minecraft, and so much more. I'm going to talk a lot about video games, I sincerely hope you don't mind.

Gaming Plushie Wishlist

I don’t know about you, but I love stuffed animals! As a child I had tons that sat on my bed and hung in hammocks in the corners of my bedroom. Growing older it was very difficult to get rid of my collection. Eventually I parsed it down to a select few items of great sentimental value, and they now live in a box in my closet. This story ended up going in kind of a sad direction, which was unintentional! I meant to set the stage for fun information about my video game plushies!

A few months ago I shared my Harvest Moon plush collection, and included the plushies that I’m missing from my group. Writing that article got me thinking: what other plushies do I wish I had?

It turns out that there are absolutely tons of video game themed stuffed toys out there! I live in a small area that’s not very “in” with video games and geek culture, so locating these items is difficult if one isn’t searching online or attending an anime/gaming convention (which, coincidentally, is how I’ve obtained nearly all of my present collection!). After checking out, and subsequently drooling over, the toys at the Pink Gorilla booth during PAX, I decided to hit The Internet at large to see what I’m missing!

Spoiler alert: I’m missing a lot.

I nearly squealed myself into passing out when I saw the Lakitu at Pink Gorilla’s booth, and I saw that Thwomp in an awesome retro gaming store while in Kentucky over the summer. Do you own any of these awesome gaming plushies?

Check back soon, because I’m going to do a little showcase on the ones that I do have. If you have some cool gaming toys, let us know! We love comments and pictures :D
