ONM Remembered – #204

“Yoshi’s Island sweets: Cute and full of fruit.”


from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 69 (June 1998)

ONM showing off some really colourful Nintendo trinkets from Japan, of varying levels of worthlessness. The Mario Kart model looks great, and I’m a sucker for any foodstuff with video game themed packaging… but what are you going to do with a Yoshi’s Island water wheel? Put water in it? DON’T BE A FOOL THAT’S A COLLECTOR’S ITEM

ONM also had the gall to print these lovely items on the bloody letters page, which always made me believe you were in for a chance of actually winning one of these stupid items if they really liked your letter. Not that I had any desire whatsoever to own Pok√©mon sellotape, but if they gave it to me for expressing my opinion on Wetrix, I wouldn’t be arguing.
