The Pokemon Center just released the first of the Meloetta plush toys. They have both the Aria and Pirouette forms. These plushies are really cool. They are similar to a doll in appearance, but the overall design is great. Of course they are well made.
The Meloetta plush toys are made of nice fabric. Its very soft to the touch. The way the hair is made of fabric is also very unique. It is flexible and can obviously move around which is very nice.
The best part of them is probably the face. The eyes are really large and the stitching is very detailed. It really makes the plush look alive.
The only downside of these new plushies is the fact that they can not stand up without falling over. Obviously by the size of their legs, there is no way that they will stand up, but they are still really cool.
There was also some other Meloetta merchandise released like file folders, stickers, hair ties, bags, straps, soft gel-type charms, memo pads, a hat, a face towel and much more. Come check it out.

On December 26, 2011, the Pokemon Centers in Japan released a total of 78 different sets of charms. These Pokemon charms were released in sets of 1 charm, 2 charms, 3 charms, 4 charms and 8 charms. They mostly consisted of the Kanto Region Pokemon from Generation I and related evolutions.
The Pokemon Centers are going to make an unprecedented all 646 Pokemon characters. They will be produced in 3 waves. The first wave was December 26th, the second wave January 14th and the final wave is scheduled for February 14, 2012. Each charm is made of metal and has a clasp so that you can clip it on to your bag, keychain, luggage, or just about anywhere.
Some of the same charms were released back in 2009, but alot of the designs of the characters are new.
Here is the complete list for the 1st wave of charms:
Some of these charms, like the Eevee evolution line, sold out in less than 5 minutes. Others like Growlithe, Nintales, Mew and a few others sold out within an hour. Most of these charms have now already sold out as the date for wave #2 approaches. For those of you who wish to buy Pokemon charms, they are getting very scarce and I suggest getting them soon before they become very difficult to get and very expensive.
Stay tuned for our next article that will feature wave #2 of Pokemon charms. Most of them have not been made before, so they are sure to be very popular.
