Heart Eyes – February 2019:

Piranha Plant amiibo from Nintendo
From the moment Nintendo announced they were turning Piranha Plant into an amiibo, we were totally on board. Piranha Plant joined the Super Smash Bros Ultimate lineup last week as free DLC for anyone who purchased the game before 1/31.
Missed your chance? You can still pick it up in the eShop for $5. Using Piranha as your main makes from some pretty hilarious gameplay, so it’s totally worth it. (For added cuteness, try inhaling Piranha when you’re playing as Kirby – you won’t be disappointed!)
We’ve had our eye on the Piranha Plant amiibo for a while now, and we’re so excited to finally add it to our collection on February 15th.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part from Warner Brothers Animation
Everything is awesome because The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part hits theaters in just a few days. We can’t wait to see Emmett, Wyld Style, Batman, and the rest of the gang in action on the big screen once again. Get ready
We dare you to see the movie and not get Catchy Song stuck in your head when the film hits theaters on February 8th! Still LOL-ing over the LEGO Batman Movie? Us too! See if you can ace our quotes quiz!
We Bare Bears Pop! from Funko
If you’re all about Grizz, Ice Bear, and Panda, you can pick up these figures for your collection starting this month. Fingers crossed that we’ll see a Bear Stack POP! headed our way as a future release.
Peeps Cereal from Kellogg’s
No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. Peeps Cereal is a real thing that you can totally eat. Complete with colorful marshmallow flavored cereal pieces and marshmallow bits, Peeps Cereal makes it totally okay to eat candy for breakfast. We were a little disappointed that the cereal wasn’t bunny and chick shaped like actual Peeps, but the flavor is on-point and gives us Springtime vibes.
BONUS: A bowlful of Peeps Cereal is a balanced part of an Insta-worthy breakfast!
Ditto Crossbody Bag from Loungefly
Loungefly is known for bringing everyone’s favorite characters to life in the form of adorable mini backpacks, clothing, and accessories, but this Ditto bag is legit amazing. From Ditto’s ridiculously cute smile to the holographic pink material, we think this bag is a must-have for any Pokémon fan looking to make a bold statement.
Gudetama Tamagotchi from Bandai
The world’s laziest, most relatable egg just got the Tamagotchi treatment! The Gudetama Tamagotchi appeared at GameStop right before Christmas as a limited release but is now hitting Target stores.
There are two to choose from – a yellow one shaped like Gudetama’s face, and a white one with an all-over Gudetama print. Feed him soy sauce and tomatoes and play games to keep him entertained. Whichever you choose, you’ll love chillin’ with your favorite egg!
#SNAPSTAR from YULU
The first time we saw #SNAPSTAR dolls, our jaws literally hit the floor. They’re absolutely gorgeous and their outfits are super trendy. Since the #SNAPSTAR squad are influencers in the making, there is an app you can download to snap, style, and share your own amazing #SNAPSTAR lifestyle photos.
The thing we love the most? Each of the girls has their own unique interests that make them special. From saving the environment to becoming a beauty guru – these girls have diverse interests that girls can really relate to. We have more #SNAPSTAR headed your way later this month, including an amazing giveaway – so stay tuned!

Fizzlets and Bath Blasts from Da Bomb Bath Fizzers
From mid-year exams to brutal winter weather, this time of year can really stress you out. That’s why we are all about these two new products from Da Bomb Bath Fizzers – Fizzlets and Bath Blasts!
Fizzlets (seen above)
Bath Blasts may look like bath bombs, but they’re actually body scrubs, which makes them perfect for shower time. Get them wet and crumble them in your hands and watch as they foam up and reveal a fun surprise.

Wandersong from Greg Lobanov
Wandersong is one of the best games we played on Nintendo Switch last year, and it just dropped on PS4. We were drawn to Wandersong for its cute graphics, but it was the whimsical world and unique gameplay that really won us over.
You play as an adorable bard who uses the power of song to solve puzzles, unlock secrets, and save the universe. It’s easy and welcoming to learn for more casual gamers, but offers a deep and immersive story that will captivate even the most dedicated players. Plus, when you see the bard’s sweet dance moves, your heart will totally melt! We recommend playing with headphones so you can truly appreciate the soundtrack.
Wandersong is now available on Steam (PC + Mac), Humble Bundle (PC + Mac), Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.
Be sure to check back on the first Monday of each month for the latest edition of Heart Eyes so you can stay in the loop on all the best new stuff!
