Steer Pikachu and Lapras to an ocean of prizes


I was at a redemption centric arcade with skee-ball, UFO catchers and saw this Pokemon themed arcade game.




You’re supposed to move Pikachu riding a Lapras with the steering wheel on the scrolling river. The further you go the more points you get and these points translate into tickets, which can be redeemed for sweets and if you save up enough, a Nintendo DS. Adjacent to the Pokemon themed steering game was a Doraemon machine. Both are made by Banpresto.




While we’re on the subject of products starring Pikachu, did you know there was Pikachu bubble gum fruit toothpaste from Colgate? Other flavors include Torchic Strawberry and Orange Mudkip. Wait a second… Orange Mudkip? Wouldn't cool blue raspberry be a more appropriate choice?
