Do you remember the cute Canon Rilakkuma Bear that was making waves last year along with the Canon EOS M10 kit set?
That was their first season of the #ToyTravel (Nui-Dori) campaign in 2016 and it was a resounding success. I had the Canon EOS M10 at that time for a review, and the cute Rilakkuma Bear followed me along for some interesting and fun photography exploration with the Canon EOS M10.
This year 2017, a new season of #ToyTravel has started and a new toy is taking over to accompany your Canon EOS M10 camera setup! Please welcome Pikachu from Pokemon, your new travel adventure buddy, the perfect travel adventure buddy along with your Canon EOS M10!

Oh yes, there is also a “The Perfect Travel Adventure Buddy Photo Challenge”!
Let me share more information and details on the special edition Canon EOS M10 box set in the paragraphs below –
Following the resounding success of the #ToyTravel (Nui-Dori) campaign last year, Canon is bringing on Season 2 by partnering with Pokémon as “The Perfect Adventure Buddy”.
Through the launch of a special edition EOS M10 box set, bundled with a 20cm Pikachu Shoulder Plush, this initiative aims to spur users to incorporate #ToyTravel creatively in their photography.
#ToyTravel essentially is the art of photography where toys imitate life. Spontaneous and fun, it can be anything from a selfie of you and a figurine chilling by the pool on a lazy afternoon, to a jump shot with your favourite plush toy on top of the mountain you just conquered. The possibilities are endless and one is only limited by his or her imagination and creativity.
“Beyond professional photography, we believe that photography should be accessible to all, with a fun and engaging side to it. Toy photography has proven to be an interesting genre which resonated well with our target audience, through the success of #ToyTravel Season 1. For a broader reach to people from all walks of life, we have chosen to partner Pokémon for #ToyTravel Season 2, as the characters are well-loved by both the young and young-at-heart. Through the launch of the special edition EOS M10 Pikachu box set, we hope to inspire users to explore creative options when it comes to photography and share these spontaneous moments on social media”, said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore.
