HelloPika Pikachu Talking Robot Toy: Pika! Pika!

Are you ready for the cutest Pikachu toy ever? The HelloPika Pikachu Talking Robot Toy is an interactive plaything that will melt your heart. It delivers an interactive, responsive experience for both kids and adults. It looks like Pikachu, and talks like Pikachu, and will respond to you.

When you call HelloPika, the robot will move its head in your direction and light up its rosy cheeks. Other verbal commands will have it shaking its head or nodding. It looks like it can also hang over your shirt pocket so you can take him with you. Just give him 2 AAA batteries and you have yourself a real and responsive Pokémon.

I’m not a Pokémon fan myself, but this is pretty damn adorable. The HelloPika Pikachu Talking Robot Toy will be available in August for about $43 (USD). That’s not much at all for that much cuteness. Pokémon fans will be all over this, so get one while you can. They won’t last long, that’s for sure. I bet they release a few other Pokémon versions of this toy next. Snorlax? Nah. He would just snore. Maybe a Heatmor that breathes actual fire?

New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition Coming This Month

And with Detective Pikachu on the way, people are extra excited for all things Pikachu. So if you want one, you better hurry up and claim one while you still can.
