Cute Helicopter Kirby toy back in stock at Japanese outlets

Astound your friends! Annoy your cat!

The very-cute and not-very-useful Kirby Hovering Helicopter is back in stock and available to pre-order at Japanese retail outlets. The dinky toy released last year and proceeded to sell out faster than the pink blob can gobble down enemies.

Kirby himself measures around 62mm (sizing up to 133mm with the twin rotors) and comes with a charge cable and a very basic remote control. Once activated, the Nintendo mascot glides through the air with a perpetual up/down motion. Sure to be a hit at parties… for a few minutes.

The Kirby Hovering Helicopter is priced around $15 / £11, obviously not including any shipping or customs charges. Pre-orders are open at Play-Asia until March 25, with the toy itself scheduled to ship around July 31.
