Top 8 Pokemon gifts for 6 year olds

The Pokemon franchise is a great hobby for all ages, bringing together kids and creating lifetime friendships. Whether it’s video games, trading cards or toys there is something for your child.

However, there are certain Pokemon gifts that are more suited for particular age groups.

For example, some Pokemon games can contain low level cartoon violence and might not be the suitable for your child.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your 6 year old and worried about getting the wrong gift, this blog will be very helpful with making the correct decision. Below, I will list the top 8 Pokemon gifts for 6 year olds and the reason why!

My top 8 list

  1. Pokemon Cards
  2. Pokemon Plushies
  3. Pokemon Books
  4. Pokemon Coins and Badges
  5. Pokemon Collection Tins
  6. Pokemon Binders
  7. Funko Pops
  8. Pokemon T-Shirts

1. Pokemon Cards

3 Legendary Pokemon
Celebi, Zapdos, Arceus

Pokemon trading cards are one the best Pokemon products you can buy. The trading cards are very collectable and are designed for kids aged 6 and above. Pokemon cards are mostly found in what’s called a booster pack.

Each booster pack will generally contain 11 cards and are the core product for the Pokemon trading card game. Kids will have the opportunity to obtain their favourite cards by opening up booster packs.

A great set to start with would be the Pokemon Go trading card set. The Pokemon Go set is the newest set currently and is jammed packed with awesome Pokemon Cards. Like with all new Pokemon sets the products are super affordable and can be purchased for retail price unlike older Pokemon sets.

2. Pokemon Plushies ( stuffed toy)

Depending on where you are in the world you may have a different name for this gift. Here we call them plushies, which are basically soft stuffed toys. They come in all different types and sizes and there is basically one for every type of Pokemon out there.

Kids will love Pokemon plushies as they make great long lasting toys. I still have my Charizard plushie from when i was child and it’s almost 22 years old.

There is so many different types of plushies available to buy, so i would recommend buying and official Licensed Pokemon plushie such as blah blah blah. These are official products and are made of great quality material just like the one I got when i was a child and its lasted this long.

3. Pokemon Books

Pokemon Books

Pokemon books are a great gift idea for 6 year olds. Not only are they very affordable (most cost around $10) but they’re also very popular.

There are several different Pokemon books ranging from stories to informational books. One of the best selling among kids is the ‘Essential Pokemon Handbook‘, which includes 875 Pokemon characters. It is the perfect gift for kids because remembering all their favourite Pokemon characters can be difficult.

Children also love the ‘Where’s Pikachu‘ books that are the exact same as the classic ‘Where’s Wolly‘. This specific book costs less than $10 and has over 2,800 5 star Amazon reviews!

Other books kids love are the ‘Classic Chapter Book‘ that come in chapter collections such as this one. They are illustrated books based on the original Pokemon characters, which are well known and the most popular.

4. Pokemon Coins and Badges

Pokemon Coins and Badges

Pokemon badges were earned in the video games by defeating gym leaders. What better way to experience Pokemon by getting your child some Pokemon badges .

Pokemon pins and badges can be obtained through buying Pokemon collection boxes which also have booster packs and some promo cards in them.

Pokemon coins are also very collectable and come in similar collection boxes or tins. I would recommend buying these 2 products as they contain booster packs, promotional cards as well as a pin and a coin.

Pokemon TCG: Kleavor VStar Collection Box
  • 1 etched foil promo card featuring Kleavor V
  • 1 etched foil promo card featuring Kleavor VSTAR
  • 1 oversize foil card featuring Kleavor VSTAR
  • 6 Pokemon TCG booster packs
  • 1 collector’s pin featuring Kleavor
  • 1 metallic coin featuring Kleavor
  • 1 acrylic VSTAR marker
  • A code card usable in either the Pokemon TCG Online or Pokemon TCG Live
Pokemon TCG: Lucario VStar Premium Collection Box
  • 1 etched foil promo card featuring Lucario V
  • 1 etched foil promo card featuring Lucario VSTAR
  • 1 oversize foil card featuring Lucario VSTAR
  • 5 Pokemon TCG booster packs
  • 1 collector’s pin featuring Lucario
  • 1 acrylic VSTAR marker
  • A code card usable in either the Pokemon TCG Online or Pokemon TCG Live

5. Pokemon Collection Tins

Pokemon Collectors Chest

Pokemon collection tins are a very colourful, collectable tin that contains loads of Pokemon products. These collection tins contain Pokemon themed pencils, stickers, a note pad, small puzzle, promo cards and some Pokemon trading card game booster packs.

Being super affordable and multi purposed, Pokemon collection tins are a brilliant gift for your 7 year old. They generally feature some of the most popular Pokemon, such as Pikachu, Charizard and Rayquaza.

The best collection tins to buy for your child will be the latest release as they are affordable. Some of the older collection tins are quite expensive due to their collectable value and are probably not a good option for child. With that being said the 2022 Pokemon collectors tin would be a great gift for a year old

6. Pokemon Binders

Binders are great for collecting all your favourite cards and organising them into your binder. Keeping your cards safe and organised in an easy to store Pokemon card binder.

These days, kids are moving more towards Pokemon Video games to play with friends as opposed to trading cards – it’s no secret the digital world is taking over. However i am old school and would rather my kids playing with cards and reading rather than staring at a screen.

Pokemon binders come in shapes and sizes and varying quality for all kinds of collectors. The binder pictured comes in this collection box which also comes with a Pokemon coin.

7. Pokemon Funko Pops

Pokemon Funko Pops

If you know what Pokemon is then chances are you have heard of Funko pops. Highly collectable figures which come in 1000’s of different forms from all kinds of entertainment franchises.

However Pokekon Funko pops are some of the most popular you can buy and they are affordable. With new ‘pops’ released regularly and for as little as $20 each these make great gifts for 6 year olds.

i would recommend starting with some of the more popular Pokemon such as this Pikachu Pop below…

Pikachu Pop #353
  • From Pokemon S1, Pikachu, as a stylised POP vinyl from Funko
  • Figure stands 9 cm and comes in a window display box
  • Check out the other Pokemon figures from Funko Collect them all

8. Pokemon T-Shirts

Kids don’t just like to play Pokemon! In fact, when I grew up I loved wearing Pokemon clothing. One of the coolest ways for 6 year olds to show off their love for Pokemon is with a Pokemon T-shirt.

Pokemon T-shirts are great and can be worn time after time. Official Pokemon T-shirts are great quality and can last a lifetime.

You can buy all sorts of Pokemon T-shirts online but I would recommend this Pikachu T-shirt as they are very popular amongst young boys. The shirt is also official Pokemon merchandise, which means you aren’t buying a low quality knock off.

For the girls, there are also plenty of options. I personally like this short sleeve Pikachu shirt that like above, is official merchandise. With that said, both shirts mentioned are unisex!


The above is my personal list of the best Pokemon gifts for 6 year olds. Thats why I’ve listed a great variety of products for you to choose from..

Pokemon is a fantastic hobby and has changed he lives of millions of kids around the world. Make your next gift a Pokemon gift!
