Travel with Pikachu this summer with the Canon EOS M10
You may not hit all the Pokemon gyms, but you at least have the chance to get Pikachu and a brand new Canon EOS M10 for your companions this summer!
A creative collaboration between Canon and Pokemon brings us the special edition EOS M10 box set with a freebie Pikachu shoulder plush. This combination aims to promote creativity in travellers as they incorporate favourite toys in their travel photography with the hash tag #ToyTravel.
Sweeping the Internet are images of toys creatively pictured into several landmarks as their owners travel through the world with their very own silent companion. Dubbed as “Nui Dori,” you might have come across these images, the most popular being the toy Lego and his adventures.
A trend that started in Japan, Canon now continues the tradition with the release of their Canon EOS M10 in the Philippines in light of the growing number of travel-loving Filipinos today. A well-thought out collaboration, let’s not forget that the Philippines was also swept by the popularity of the Pocket Monsters (Pokemon) with Pikachu being a well-known face in the country. Therefore, a Canon EOS M10 in one hand and a Pikachu plushie in another is definitely something every Pinoy will welcome.
“We are happy to be a part of this campaign combining the fun of photography and toys in traveling. The EOS M series is the perfect travel companion and as more and more Filipinos are travelling the country and the world, Canon is giving more reasons to enjoy it through #ToyTravel,” says canon Marketing PH Consumer Group Head, Benny Yu.
