A Glowing Recommendation!
Saturday, I hit Meijer and discovered the tail end of a 30% off *all* collector trading cards... sadly, too late for a news update... :\ Sunday, I noticed Target has started putting selected Jakks toys on clearance (approx. 25% off)--and they were resetting their seasonal shelving area... so... while we are waiting for retailers' Christmas in July, I have a little news to redeem my oversight on the Meijer sale.
What's red and glows in the dark? Not Charizard's tail--or wait-! Yes, it IS Charizard's tail--on this new t-shirt, that is! (see attached pix) Available at Wal-mart in youth boys' sizes up to XL (14-16), $7, this bright red Pokemon T glows in the dark! All your fave heavy hitting Pokemon led by Pikachu BRING IT ON! ;) (You can see the Pikachu blanket I made in the one shot, background, fleece obtained from Wal-mart a few years ago--and say, where *is* the Pokemon fabric, I'm itching to stitch up another pillowcase!).
Now, if you are a lady who isn't game to squeeze into a boys' XL T like I will be, LOL!, don't despair, as our fave fashion place Hot Topic is dishing up yet another super-cute top, this one with a napping Pikachu on rainbow cloud 9!
I have not seen this or the Team Rocket T in-store in my area yet; however, speaking of Target resetting their seasonal shelves, how about beating the back to school rush with these cool school items at Hot Topic, Pikachu pens and Pikachu notebooks:
These were already in my local Hot Topic mall store--wasn't school just *out*? ;D But, hey, back-to-school doesn't have to be all bad, it's all in the books you pick to read. Check it out, a hardcover "Greatest Battles" book is due on August 1 and the cover art says the 80 page book will include a poster, from Scholastic, $7.99 on Amazon:
The cover art for the 2nd D&P manga is also posted on Amazon, due out September 2:
For kids learning to read, 4-8, "Save the Shieldon" is due out September 1 (hey teachers!):
You can also see on Amazon there are a ton of other Pokemon books in the works, just search "Pokemon" and sort by release date. Say... wot's this??? More Pokemon All-Stars DVDs?! It's Meowth!
This and vol.12 are due out August 19. I had not heard about this before; but, then, I don't have a subscription to any anime websites... hmm. OK, here's what Right Stuf! has so far:
They say vol.12 is Treecko. I'll keep my eyes open for more info!
