Demand for Pokemon Poke Ball terrariums overwhelms Etsy artist

first_imgPokemon Go proved over the summer months that the Pokemon IP retains its ability to attract millions of players and generate tens of millions in revenue. But it’s not just the officially licensed Pokemon products that are grabbed by fans, the unofficial fan-made objects can also be popular…overwhelmingly popular in fact.A great example of this comes from an artist known as Lauren from Lewisville, Texas who single-handedly runs the Etsy shop The Vintage Realm. She had a great idea for a new product to sell: take the Poke Ball design and create little Pokemon terrariums inside them including a Pokemon character. The end result looks fantastic.As you can imagine, Lauren’s Poke Balls have proved extremely popular, to the point where she can no longer keep up. Over 100 people have asked her to make custom versions, and she’s had to refuse them all. She works alone, and time is finite.Lauren has promised to get some new Poke Ball terrariums up for sale at least once a week. She creates three sizes: a 3-inch diameter for $20, a 4-inch diameter for $30, and a 5.5-inch diameter for $45. For all three shipping costs $6.50 and they only ship within the USA. Can you imagine how overwhelmed she’d be if they were offered internationally!?I’m sure Nintendo won’t be too happy about Lauren selling these Poke Balls, but I also wouldn’t be too surprised if The Pokemon Company decided to copy the idea. Official Pokemon terrariums would be extremely popular and could generate millions more in profit for both companies.We wish Lauren all the best while at the same time apologizing to her for inevitably making even more people aware of her awesome terrariums on Etsy. You can also check out more examples of the terrariums over on Lauren’s DeviantArt page.last_img read more
