Of all the amiibo announced at the latest Nintendo Direct, Yarn Yoshi were clearly the cutest. But all that cute may come at a price. Literally.

Two stores in the UK have the Yarn Yoshi amiibo up for pre-order, though they are not set to arrive until this fall alongside the Wii-U exclusive Yoshi’s Woolly World.

GAME currently has a single Yarn Yoshi retailing at £19.99, or roughly $29.57. Previous amiibo all have had a MSRP of $12.99.

A triple pack of the Yarn Yoshi in green, pink, and blue – because who wouldn’t want all three – also showed up for £49.99. Options also appeared for the game bundled with all three amiibo for £79.99 as well as the game bundled with the green Yarn Yoshi for  £49.99. The game alone is available to pre-order for £34.99.

These amiibo are special because they are made of a soft, yarn material and not plastic like the previous ones. No official announcements have been made, but these adorable amiibo are sure to sell out quickly, given the troubles that have surrounded wave 4 pre-orders earlier this month.

Are you getting one? Or all three? (The answer is yes, all three!)

    And yet, I still want one… they are soooo cute lol It’s a good thing I’m not an old woman from before modern entertainment because I’d be knitting stuff like this like crazy!

    Given the author has a sackboy as his avatar I take it he doesn’t even know what he is talking about… As far as Nintendo goes, European retailers have a lot of freedom for pricing their items as Nintendo of Europe doesn’t usually market or try to enforce any kind of MSRP. That said, £19.99 does look like a MSRP, and doing a simple check on this and other websites for other amiibo reveals they are priced in the £9.99 – £14.99. If you take into account US prices of current amiibo are $9.99 – $12.99 (with TRU charging an extra $1.00 on top for no good reason), it’s easy to extrapolate and assume the actual price of the Yoshi amiibo will be $17.99 – $19.99 in the US.
