Premium Bandai has opened pre-orders for a Pokemon Gible PC Cushion. It will cost JPY 6,380 (about $47.20) and will come with a wrist rest. It’s a PC pad because you can lean on it and “hug” it between you and your desk. However, it also doubles as a luxury item you can use every day. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
According to the product page, there are three methods to enjoy Gible cushioning. First, you can leave it around as a decoration. You can then use it in its marketing as a PC pad. The wrist rest looks like a plush keyboard attached to the Gible. However, you can take it off and use the mattress in a third way, which is just hugging it like a pillow. It measures about 50 cm x 40 cm x 48 cm.
Gible isn’t the first Pokemon to appear as a plush toy or even a PC accessory. At the beginning of 2022, Ensky released a Luxury Yamper that can double as a wrist rest when you use the mouse. Gengar is also a popular companion, as Ghost-type Pokemon have appeared as a couch and like a luxury-cut-blanket.
The Pokemon Gible PC Cushion is available for pre-order from June 24, 2022, and pre-orders will close when Premium Bandai runs out of stock. The mattress will ship in Japan in October 2022.
