Paka Paka - Fruit Bats

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

I mean, I certainly was willing to give it a try! It would've been great to have another place to find paka pakas at!


There lies madness....madness I tell you!!


Well then, bring on the pakas, and bring on the madness! :cheers: :cheers:

Finally found a Gamestop that had some Fruit Bats in stock. Only bought a couple of them, but they are so darn cute!

I love the fruit bats for sure. They are pretty cool I just had to control myself.

It's so hard to do! Especially with darn blind items if you want certain ones.

No luck on my side. I need to dance more.


The willpower failed me on the Hollywood trip, I had my friend pick me out 1 fruit bat paka ball. Lo and behold.....right bat, wrong color scheme! ](*,)

Still fun though, and frankly, kinda funny.



I am having no luck either. I am thinking it's time to tap out, fate is not on my side. It gets expensive when you have bad luck with the blind bags.

Let me know if I can help - I have dupes of most of them at this point! lol ](*,)

Haven't bought any new fruit bats in like 2 weeks! I'm so proud of myself right now! Can I make it 3?? lol

If GS would just cooperate, I might have broken the streak! Why are they making rewards certificates so difficult?? Don't they know I just need one more particular fruit bat?! lol

I think it's more practical to have faith that I won't quit until I'm done, unfortunately! We'll see though!

I miss the road trip aspect of the hunt! Feels like it's been forever since I drove 2 hours away to go to a random GS I've never been to. Hoping we get back to normal soon and I have to dust off my stock checking skills!

They really did turn out to be much cooler in person than in the pictures I saw before the release. Which is both awesome, and frustrating..! lol

I totally agree on this one. I was on the fence with fruit bats, but for some reason I got them. I don't regret it at all though. The ones I got I love.

They make me smile every time I walk by their little area! And the enjoyment that the god-kid is getting out of the set entertains me so very much - she is obsessed with the watermelon bat!

She's one of my 2 best hunting buddies. We'll literally drive every which way all day, eating too much junk food and singing along to the radio at the top of our lungs, and hop in and out of all the stores along the way! Can't wait to hopefully take her out later this year hunting for something or other, I miss it!

Actually though, now that I think about it, there's a lot of similarities between my hunting buddies. But one I am paying for both of us, and the other covers her own purchases! lol

Last I'd heard, they haven't come in yet, but it should be just about any time now! I'm sure she'll be looking for a good home to take care of her dupes!
