Moose Toys has another hit on its hands and Pikmi Pops are already getting hard to find the for the holidays. It was also announced that Pikmi Pops are the only toy this year to be nominated for the Toy of the Year awards in two categories, Collectible of the Year category as well as Plush Toy of the Year category.
Pikmi Pops are very cool collectible plush creatures which give them a little more connection to the kids as they are a bit more snuggly then the plastic collectibles we are used to. Our favorites so far are the strawberry and the lobster, but all of them are quite cute and fun to play with. They are also a bit smushy, being plush, so it opens up a bunch of different ways to play.
You can find these scented plush dolls inside what looks like a lollipop, hence the name. There are also Jumbo versions that already look to be out of stock at multiple retailers, but keep hunting to find them. It is always nice to have a giant friend to oversee the rest of those smaller plush friends. Pick up a few of the Pikmi Pop packs for the holidays before they are no longer available.
Pikmi Pops was the only toy to be nominated in two categories in this year’s Toy of the Year awards announced November 3, 2017 at Play Fair in New York City. Revered as “The Oscars” for toys, Pikmi Pops was unveiled as a finalist in both the Collectible of the Year category and the Plush Toy of the Year category.
