Back in June 2023, Bandai Namco displayed the Pikmin bath bomb at Tokyo Toy Show 2023. The full name of the product is “Bikkura? Tamago Pikmin,” with loosely translates to “Surprise? Egg Pikmin.” Bikkura Tamago products from Lifestyle Bandai are bath bombs that hide a little toy inside, which you can take after the outside layer of epsom salts wash away in the water. There are a variety of toys that you can collect, since it’s completely random which one you get.

As we saw previously during Tokyo Toy Show 2023, the Pikmin bath bomb contains five different Pikmins that you can potentially obtain. You can get a Blue Pikmin, a Yellow PIkmin, a Red Pikmin, a Purple Pikmin, or a White Pikmin. The bath bomb itself has a fruity scent. This matches the design of the outside layer, which looks like a round lemon.

The Pikmin bath bombs are available from Nintendo and Bandai stores in Japan. The latest entry in the Pikmin series, Pikmin 4, is available on the Nintendo Switch.
