The 2018 Pokemon Center Valentine’s Day promotion went on sale January 13th and was full of tons of sweets and sweets related merchandise!
This year’s Valentine’s Day plush was a Pikachu Pair and adorable! They’re dressed as tiny Pikachu bakers, one boy and one girl.
The charm point is of course the tiny hearts on their butts.
There was also a heart shaped fuzzy cushion featuring artwork of the cute Pikachu Pair.
There was of course other non plush items that were equally as cute if not quite as soft.
Along with towels (which unfortunately are never easy to get pictures of) there was a set of metal charms (so you can twin with your special someone), a cute bag charm that you can attach to non bag items, a unique little pouch designed to look like a biscuit, and a Pokemon Center drawstring pouch with the promotional artwork.
Special note 2: The sticker roll! I generally don’t buy stickers because I never use them, but I caved for these because the promotional artwork is so cute.
This year’s promotion also included a couple kitchen and baking related items, which was really exciting.
There was a set of cookie cutters, silicone molds for making chocolates and candies, and adorable kitchen rags for cleaning up spills or just brightening up your kitchen area.
Also as part of the promotion was two types of gift bags (a simple one color brown paper bag and a colorful clear bag). There was also a small paper bag with handles. These are designed so you can make your cute chocolates and cookies and then give them to your special someone’s in super cute bags, making everything that much more precious.
Not forgetting the pink heart shaped mugs, perfect for drinking sweet hot chocolate out of.
The stationary set (left) looks just similar enough to the box of chocolates (right)… to me at least… that I definitely got mixed up a couple times while shopping. It does clearly say on both boxes what they are, and now that I have the two side by side I can tell they’re not identical like I thought up until this point. It’s still confusing!
But speaking of chocolate boxes… Pikachu’s Sweet Treats included not one, not two, but three different snacks!
First up… vanilla strawberry chocolate cookies!
Originally I wasn’t planning on buying any but when it comes to cookies and chocolate, I am weak, and it didn’t take much to convince myself to get a bag.
I did not regret this decision – these cookies are amazing! It’s basically a vanilla cookie with really yummy strawberry chocolate on top. The artwork on the bag is of the Valentine’s Day Pair Pikachu from 2017.
Number two… Pikachu chocolates!
These milk chocolates come wrapped in little Pikachus and are sold in a plastic Pikachu cup with tiny ears sticking out the top.
There was a girl version with a pink bow and a boy version with a blue bow.
Also of note are the little tails on the backs of the chocolate wrappers.
Last and certainly not least… the chocolate box!
This was my favorite item, aesthetically, out of all three sweets, although to be honest, the chocolate cookies were the tastiest.
Although the individually wrapped chocolates are adorable, all the chocolate is basically milk chocolate. But still cute!
That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report!
Until next time~
