GameStop Father’s day gift guide 2017

With Father’s day quickly approaching I know there are a bunch of people trying to figure out what to get dad… so here’s a round up of gifts from GameStop that almost any gamer or comic book loving dad would enjoy.

Stop in at GameStop for all the gaming gifts

gamestoplogo_blackredWe love GameStop… We shop there pretty regularly, well till the point where the staff knows our name. When GameStop asked to sponsor a post about holiday gifts from GameStop – I was like absolutely.

Lets start with the items that Marc found while shopping at GameStop.

img_0958First stop was Pokemon – while the card game is awesome and really started Marc on his path to Pokemon fandom, the newest videos game Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun both made his list.  Then he ran over to the Pokemon Z-Ring set by TOMY and asked for an additional pack of crystals for it too.

img_0938My Daughter Harper – Loves the princess gear at GameStop so while she doesnt play the video games she does love their toys.  She picked up a Princess Peach amiibo figure and it’ll just be good for her imagination play.  She found a Funko Pop from Disney’s Beauty & the Beast Belle and quickly added that to her cart. She also picked up a new cup with Belle the Princess on it as well.

She nuzzles with that for a minute walks it over to Harper’s cart and drops it in before making seeing the Princess Zelda plush and doesnt let that go… not even to head to the check out.

While that kids had fun – I still shopped for myself – looking at the Xbox One S – which are $50 now till chrismas.  I picked out the new Gears of War 4 Xbox One S because its the limited edition Deep Blue only at GameStop.

img_0944Here are some of the amazing video games – I picked up for Marc for his Nintendo 3DS…

Marc is a superfan of Skylanders Imaginators, but didnt have the Dark starter pack so we got that for him.  Now go brings his skylanders where ever he goes…

Marc is also getting into Yo-Kai Watch so picking up the new Yo-Kai Watch 2 game was pretty easy.

Then of course being a big Nintendo fan we got the newest Super Mario game… Super Mario Maker.

I also highly recommend Just Dance 2017 – its a game the whole family can play!
