I began collecting Pokemon plushes when I was very young. I love collecting Pokemon plushes. I have currently sixty four Pokemon plushes in my collection. Some of my plushes are very old while some are newer. The first plush I ever got was of my favorite Pokemon Pikachu. I only collect plushes of Pokemon that I like. I have Pokemon from every generation from first to fifth. I find the collecting Pokemon you like is much better than simply getting every single Pokemon plush there is. That would take way to long and cost way too much money. I find that collecting is fun however it also because like an addiction. Somehow you always want more. But no matter that downside Pokemon plush collecting is an enjoyable hobby.
Now my Pokemon plushes are from many different companies. Some are from Pokemon Center while others are from Takara Tomy. I have collected for many years. Each plush is like a new addition to the family. Now I love my plushes and keep the in the best condition I can. However some have endured some wear and tear over the years such as my Pikachu whose tail and arm had to be sewn up. Whenever I tell people how many plushes I have they are always amazed. I suppose I have a lot but not as many as other people might have.
Another one of my favorite Pokemon from my collection is Buizel. A great thing about collecting them is when they arrive. I always find my self getting super excited when one of my packages arrives. Of course ordering them is the key step. I order them from Amazon.com and Hardrock-Pokemon.com because these are trusted places were I know I won’t be receiving fake or counterfeit plushes. I would never buy a counterfeit plush because as I have learned that makes the Pokemon Center lose money and force them to raise their prices.
I love collecting because each Pokemon plushie is unique in its own way. They’re also super soft and cuddly wonderful for hugging. I’m happy that I began collecting Pokemon plushes and I don’t hope to stop any time soon. Another great thing is getting to open then boxes when they come that’s always a lot of fun even if you know what Pokemon it is inside. Collecting is a hobby that I think most people enjoy and do. I find that looking at your collection makes you realize what you have accomplished. I see all my plushes and I amazed at how many I actually have. It gives me a great sense of pride when I see them all. In conclusion I find that collecting Pokemon plushes is a joy in which everyone should indulge in.
