Baby you can drive my Poké-car: Toyota rolls out two Pokémon cars at the Tokyo Toy Show 2014 that are totes adorable.
Would driving a Pikachu or Fennekin car in the Pokémon world be the epitome of swag? Would that loser Gary Oak own one and brag about it over other Pokemon trainer’s heads like the jerk store he is? Hmm, all good questions… But what I do know is that these two particular Toyopet Pokémon cars from Toyota are absolutely cute.
Just look at that face… d’awww!
Both Poké-mobiles were one of the main attractions at the Tokyo Toy Show 2014, Japan’s premier toy show where the country’s biggest consumer electronic manufacturers display all sorts of playthings. At the show, you can expect to see card games, robots (where else?!), and if it fits the theme – hello, Pokémon – a car with Pikachu’s lovable face on it.
Speaking of which, Toyota used a Toyopet for the chassis of both vehicles. What’s a Toyopet? It’s a pretty obscure car that’s mostly known in Japan, originating from the 1940’s in fact. Neither of these cars will never see the mass assembly line though; they’re just promotional vehicles. So to the Poké-enthusiast they’ll be extremely rare types.
