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:

http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/store/product.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302028401&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442180200&bmUID=1213619297663

 

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:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Pokemon-Greatest-Battles-Maria-Barbo/dp/0439686733/ref=sr_1_27?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=
1213620581&sr=1-27

 

The cover art for the 2nd D&P manga is also posted on Amazon, due out September 2:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Pok%C3%A9mon-Diamond-Pearl-Adventure-Pokemon/dp/142152287X/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1213620548&sr=1-18

 

For kids learning to read, 4-8, "Save the Shieldon" is due out September 1 (hey teachers!):

 

http://www.amazon.com/Save-Shieldon-Pokemon-Simcha-Whitehill/dp/0545073057/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1213620548&sr=1-20

 

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!

 

http://www.amazon.com/Pokemon-All-Stars-vol-11/dp/B001AV8QFE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1213621053&sr=1-1

 

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:

/5/4/0/0/results/desc/asc/50/1

 

They say vol.12 is Treecko.  I'll keep my eyes open for more info!

 

Pika Pi!
