You gotta catch 'em all! The highly anticipated live action film, Pokémon Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10th, and fans are already eager to get their hands on movie merchandise. But what keeps kids and parents so passionate about the famous Japanese characters? "The ever-expanding Pokémon franchise has been a beacon for kids and kids at heart since the original video games launched more than 20 years ago," says J.C. Smith, Senior Director of Consumer Marketing of The Pokémon Company International. "Since its introduction, the beloved animation series, the ever-popular Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon GO and a wide variety of video games and apps have offered fans a variety of ways to engage with our iconic collection of Pokémon like Pikachu. With its family-friendly messages of sportsmanship, friendship and community, Pokémon is a brand that parents know and trust."
It is this reason that longtime gaming fans and new Pokémon lovers are buzzing about the soon-to-be-released feature film. "Pokémon is on the same level as Super Mario Bros. and Pac-Man," adds James Zahn, Toy Expert and Senior Editor of The Pop Insider. "It's never gone away, and it's constantly being reinvented to stay fresh and relevant. When Detective Pikachu was announced, there was a collective eyebrow raised at the prospect of Ryan Reynolds playing a version of the iconic yellow creature. When that first trailer hit, audiences could see exactly why he's perfect for the part. It's so absurd that it's genius. This will be a great chance for parents and kids to connect at the movies." And for those die-hard fans, we've rounded up the latest Pokémon launches and hot-sellers that will soon be flying off store shelves. We guarantee that super-sleuth Pikachu fans won't have to search hard to find these fun pieces!

Still sorting out how to balance your new bun in the oven with an old workout routine? Well, the timing is perfect to put high-tech fitness trackers to the test to monitor safe prenatal exercises, heart rates and sleep patterns while staying healthy and fit for the next nine months (and beyond, of course!). New moms must keep moving for optimal well-being, suggests G. Thomas Ruiz, MD, OB/GYN Lead at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California. "We encourage expectant women to engage in exercise or physical activity on a regular basis throughout their pregnancy," he advises. "Women who are physically active during pregnancy tend to have smaller babies, which most women who are pushing out a kid don't mind." But what about the anxieties of pregnant moms who fear the harmful effects of radiation from such devices? "There has never been a study to demonstrate that background radiation from a cell phone or a Bluetooth device has had a deleterious effect on the outcome of pregnancy," says Dr. Ruiz. "There has been no data to determine it. We do ultrasounds on a regular basis, which is sending sound energy to the baby so we can do diagnostic work, and that is at a much higher level of energy than a cell phone. It's never been shown to demonstrate harmful effects towards the baby or the pregnancy. So moms can use their trackers to their heart's content." So stay strong and count on, Mama! From Fitbit to Bellabeat, here are are our best picks to keep new moms stepping out in style.
