World of Nintendo 2.5" Figures Wave 34 - Princess Daisy - Jakks Pacific 2022

I've surprisingly never played a single game that featured Princess Daisy as a character. Although I've eschewed the majority of video games as an adult, the late 80s and 90s were a completely different story. Back then I spent nearly every waking moment glued to my Nintendo or SNES. It was my obsessiveness that created the new family rule, "no Nintendo on weekdays." Mario games were always a go-to, but I didn't ever own a GameBoy, so Daisy's sole appearance in the 80s and 90s, Super Mario Land for GameBoy, was unknown to me. It took me a while to research her design and color scheme, because in the gameplay she was grayscale, in the manual all characters were pink and black, even in the later GameBoy Color, she was a nondescript pink coral color. But then I discovered her hiding on the box art of the original 1989 game, a simple orange and brunette recolor of Princess Peach. She finally got her modern/classic look when the GameCube was introduced in 2001. Let's check her out!

Even though this design was finalized in the early aughts, I love that she looks so classic Nintendo.

Daisy has a swivel head and swivel arms.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Daisy with the 2.5" Princess Peach.

And here are my Daisy figures: K'NEX, PopCo, and one I'm unsure of.

And here are my 2.5" World of Nintendo ladies so far: Princess Toadstool, Wendy O Koopa, Samus, Princess Daisy, Dixie Kong, and Princess Peach.
