EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Collect some of your favorite characters from the entire Nintendo video game franchise with the World of Nintendo Orange Squid. This 7.5-inch soft orange toy is made from velboa plush and has embroidered eyes along with two floppy tentacles. It's based on the recent video game Splatoon, a third-person shooter game for the Wii U. In the game, the squids are actually called Inklings, and they can transform from squid to human form. The Inklings shoot ink in their team's colors that can be used to “splat” an opposing team or enemy. Orange squids aren't the only color in the video game, so additional colors of squids are also available and sold separately.

Additional plush toys from other franchises, such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Pikmin, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, and Animal Crossing, are also available and sold separately.

Is It Fun?
The Orange Squid will be fun for fans of the video game Splatoon to collect and play with. It brings the action of the video game to life so that kids can play out a real-world version of the game. But when they're not pretending to shoot ink at their opponents, the Orange Squid is nice and soft, ready for cuddling and hugging, too. Older Nintendo fans who are into collecting as many Nintendo toys as they can might also like to add this more recent Nintendo video game addition into their collections. 
Who It’s For
The World of Nintendo Orange Squid is for ages 3 and up. Because it comes from the video game Splatoon, fans of that video game are going to like cuddling up with this soft squid and playing out a real-world version of the video game. And even though it's from a relatively new Nintendo video game, it might also be fun for older Nintendo fans to add to their collections if they're really trying to make their collections complete.
What To Be Aware Of

The Orange Squid is surface-wash only.

Additional colors of squids are also available and sold separately. And more plush toys from other Nintendo franchises, such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Pikmin, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, and Animal Crossing, are also available and sold separately. You can also collect Nintendo plush toys with sound, including the Gold Coin with Sound.
