Pokemon Planters $44.00 )

I love supporting local businesses, especially when they’re fellow nerds!

The4thSlice is a small business in Australia that creates a variety of 3D prints. Today’s focus is their adorable, four-piece starter Pokémon planters. Colour co-ordinated to each Pokémon’s element, the set includes Bulbasaur, Charmander, Pikachu, and (the best starter ever imho) Squirtle. Personally, I love quirky household items that hint to a homeowner’s nerdy soul, and these would do that perfectly.

Pokémon – Pokéball Duffle Bag $69

Look, it’s a gym bag. And if you use it at the gym, I bet you’ll meet the right people. Just avoid the guy at the very back.

There's no better bag that this when you're channelling your inner Machoke and go pump some iron! Who knows, you might just lead the gym one day.

Zar Pindom – Squirtle Enamel Pin $25

Zar Pindom sell both individual pins and run a subscription based Patreon where you can vote for designs and collect monthly releases from across different fandoms. I had the privilege of purchasing one of their Magikarp pins from their Supanova stall. Not only is it a sturdy and colourful pin, it also cleverly includes transparent material for the water. And I didn't even need an HM03 to catch it!

They've also travelled from Kanto to Gotham City to a Galaxy Far Far Away to bring a range of pins from other franchises. From glow in the dark Joker pins to mix medium Star Wars pin, these guys design some amazing collectables.
