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

Wherever you go, Pikachu can come, too, with My Partner Pikachu. This almost four-inch action figure is the perfect size for taking with you on the go, and you'll be able to hear and see his more than 100 reactions no matter where you are. 

There are three touch sensors that activate sounds and movements: head, nose, and tummy. You can simply discover all of Pikachu's reactions by pressing any of the sensors on their own or in different combinations. His ears and arms move, his cheeks and tail light up, and you'll hear him talk and maybe even play an electric zap sound effect. 

You can also enter training mode by pressing and holding Pikachu's head and belly sensors for five seconds. In this mode, Pikachu will perform an action, and you must respond with the proper sensor combination reaction. There are nine training actions to complete, but only one is provided in the instructions. You'll need to visit the Wicked Cool Toys website to find the other eight. Those videos were not available at the time of this review. 

Is It Fun?

Young Pokemon fans will like the interaction they get with this pocket-sized Pokemon. They'll have fun discovering what Pikachu can say and do, and using this toy as part of their imaginative Pokemon roleplay. The lights, sounds, and movements bring the character to life, enhancing the imaginative play.

Who It’s For

My Partner Pikachu is for Pokemon fans ages 4 and up.
