Following the release of the Nintendo Wii back in 2006, my love for Mario Kart was rediscovered, and my children have enjoyed playing Mario Kart together whilst growing up as well as Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Galaxy. They have all become firm family favourites, and so we were also very excited when we learnt all about the new Nintendo Switch which is a console that you can not only play at home, but also on the go. This will therefore be ideal to take away on our many adventures for the kids to play with on their travels.
Whilst learning about the new Nintendo Switch console, we were equally delighted to find out about a new range of Nintendo Plush toys from Jakks Pacific, and Riley was very excited to receive the lovely Yoshi through the post recently.
These plush toys stand at approximately 7 inches tall, and are both super cute and super soft. They are highly detailed and are of great quality.
The high grade materials used to make the product help it to look fabulous, and it will be nice for us to build up our collection with some of the other characters.
It is an official licensed Nintendo product, and in addition to the Yoshi plush pictured, you can also purchase Mario, Luigi, Bob-om, and Goomba. They are recommended for children aged 3+ although I definitely know a fair few adults that would love to purchase one of these for themselves too.
If you follow the blog regularly, you will know that Riley is a huge fan of pretend play, and so Yoshi has already been featured in many of Riley's pretend adventures. These have so far included a trip to the dolls house, where he visited for a sleepover, and also being invited as a guest to a tea party with Riley's other soft toys where he pretended to be a chef and made Yoshi some mushroom soup!
Being only 7 inches tall, also makes him easy to carry around, so Riley has enjoyed being able to take him out places with us too. As you can see from the photos he is very happy with his new friend.
These plush toys are really lovely, and if you would like to start building your own collection, or would just like to purchase your favourite, then they are available for a very reasonable price of £7.99 from Smyths Toys.
The collection of Yoshi, Mario, Luigi, Bob-om and Goomba can all be found here: Smyths Toys
