Collector’s Corner: Club Mocchi Mocchi’s Super Soft Nintendo Plushies

Club Mocchi Mocchi Nintendo Plush

Retail therapy during quarantine has been a real thing for me. Without fail, I seem to stumble across a dozen things I just have to own on a daily basis. There are cycles: while I’m always up for more Nendoroids, some days I’m more excited for tiny cat hats and others I think maybe now is the time to attempt a model kit. This week I am all about the Club Mocchi Mocchi Nintendo plush toys from Tomy.

Club Mocchi Mocchi Tom Nook plush

I’ve felt one once, in the Before Times, when my local GameStop was open. (RIP!) The Goomba I spotted on the shelf was the softest and squishiest thing I had ever touched! But I don’t particularly like purchasing plush toys that I want to snuggle from a retail store. Who knows how many filthy hands or snotty noses touched them. (Thank goodness for internet shopping.)

Tomy’s officially licensed Nintendo plush line focuses on some of the company’s best selling franchises. There are plenty of Super Mario squish ’ems. Maybe you’d rather have a couch full of Kirbys. Splatoon more your thing? Here’s a rainbow of Squids. Jenni and I are crushing on the new Animal Crossing ones pretty hard.

Club Mocchi Mocchi Boo plush

Not only are these made from incredibly soft fabric, the embroidery work is on point. Take a closer look at the detailing required to bring Boo to life. The threads feel similar to the silk embroidery threads I use to for cross stitching on clothing. This keeps the silky soft feel consistent. Just try to not shove your face into these.

Currently available plushies start at 4 inches with the tiny cuddly clip-ons and run up to a whopping 27 in W x 22 in D x 17 in H for the Jumbo Kirby plush. I won’t lie. The temptation to buy one of those instead of a set of Tom Nook and Isabelle for my recliner is real. Not sure there’d be room for me on my chair. Sitting on the floor is comfortable, yes?

If you decide to join me in taking the plunge, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how affordable these Club Mocchi Nintendo plushies are. Clip on buddies start at $8.99. 15 inch Mega plush toys land in the $38.99 range, while the Jumbos are $69.99. You can find the entire selection on Tomy’s official Club Mocchi Mocchi site, and at partner retailers like Amazon and Best Buy.
