Today, I would like to share something with you!
As most of you probably know, I have moved away from the USA and I am back in my homeland, Slovak Republic. While I am being here and going to university, my dad is still staying in the USA until ending of January/beginning of February. I can pretty much imagine that he feels lonely without us, his family here, but yet, he is not super bored. He actually enjoys shopping and just going into random stores. In the last days, he has written to me that Target is selling the Jakks single figures for a cheaper and limited price (I think it's 3.99$). He doesn't know a thing about merch, but he wrote all the names down and available merchandise they had. He asked me if I would like some of them. And of course I have said YES! I have listed him some things I wanted and he searched them for me. Just now I have gotten an E-mail from him with a picture of what he got for me, here is the picture!
(Pffft, and i thought he sucked at sending photos by mail..)
He even surprised me with some items that I didn't think I would receive. OH MY! The happiness!!!!! <33333333
Can't WAIT to receive these guys! My dad is a sweetheart!!!
SO MY QUESTION TO YOU IS: How supportive are your parents or siblings or other people from your family/you are living with towards you collecting Pokemon merchandise? I am so curious to know about you! :D
So from my side, my dad is asking me most of the time: "Don't you have enough Charmanders/Snakes (he calls Snivy and it's evos snakes XD)?", but still he buys me stuff from time to time, even though I have a large collection. I think he understands me collecting Pokemon the most, because he himself collects Herpa model planes (he is a geek about anything with planes). My mom and my older sister are more "meh" towards this. Though at one point, my mom tells me how orange (Chars) and green (Snivys) everything is and it suits to my room....
So that is mostly from my side! Share your stories please! <3
EDIT: THANK YOU GUYS for your stories! I will promise you that I will answer them all, it will just take me some time XD
Aaaaaand, lookie what my dad got me today!!!
OMFGOMFGOMFGOMFG, I wanted this baby right after I have seen this on the community here! And my dad found it for me at Toys R Us! <33333333
