Object of geek desire: the carp-tastic Magikarp 3DS holder

Magikarp are sort of like the pennies of the Pokemon universe.

Equal parts common and worthless, they still manage to evoke a pronounced pang of remorse if you ever stop to imagine a world without them.

Thanks to this week's object of geek desire, however, you can always keep the oddly compelling Magikarp close at hand... even if your in-game version is buried and forgotten about deep in your first box.


Created by Etsy seller FleaCircusDesigns, the Magikarp Open Mouth Fleece Case delivers exactly what you expect it to.  Namely, a fleece Magikarp case that can hold your 3DS, PSP, Camera, or whatever the hell else you feel like cramming into its gaping, velcro-sealed craw.

While the description of the case might not specify it, The Magikarp Fleece Case also accommodates a standard issue 3DS XL - which means it'll be ready and willing to swallow up your Pikachu Yellow handheld if you're lucky enough to own one.

FleaCircusDesigns has plenty of other Pokemon case variants available in his store (including a Gardevoir, Espereon, Umbreon, Eevee, and Gengar) so chances are good that he'll have all of your Pokemon-themed 3DS protecting needs covered.  Better yet, each fleece-y pouch will only set you back $25.00 (+$3.00 shipping) so go feel free to go nuts and order one for each of your gaming handhelds.

...although if you're any kind of purist, you'll order only Magikarps and smile down at them every time you Wonder Trade one of its in-game brothers away.
