Distributor Esdevium is next month expanding its Tomy Gacha range with new toys based on the Mario and Sonic videogame franchises.

Gacha are pocket money toys traditionally sold in plastic capsules from vending machines.

The new lines from Esdevium comprise five Mario Kart characters and three Sonic characters (rsp: £4.49), and will be available in stores in see-through blister packs sold from 15-unit counter-top displays.
