With a multitude of them available for all, there’s definitely something for everyone! So sit back, relax, and let Santa Miku take you on a short stroll through our visual catalog of recommendations to help your Holiday Shopping along!
Funko pop vinyl figures are always in demand. Their vast product line covers a wide array of series and franchises, from Game of Thrones to superhero movies and even anime! Funko Pops can be purchased in a number of stores, most notably Kramer’s Toy Warden and Filbars.
Santa Miku’s Recommendation: Check out the convention-exclusive Occamy Funko Pop from the Fantastic Beasts movie universe! It’s a little on the pricey side, but the metallic finish and shiny colors are well worth it!
Ahh fidget toys, those delightful little bundles of plastic that swept into our lifestyles. You can’t go wrong with spinners and fidget cubes, and they also come in the colors and styles of iconic characters. Fidget toys can be found almost anywhere, especially in toy stores in malls.
Santa Miku’s Recommendation: The Stikbot line of toys will do the trick! While not exactly in the same line as a fidget toy, these miniature poseable figures will also guarantee hours of fidgety fun!
For your more serious anime toy enthusiast, Gunpla kits are one of your go-to items.
