Heard of Uncle David aka Soft Toy Uncle? Yep, we’re talking about the Pokemon uncle.
According to a Facebook user name Cheah, an impulsive buyer who apparently ordered 250 Pokemon plush toys from Uncle David stood him up. Understandably, that didn’t sit well with many Malaysians.
“Now uncle David’s hard earned money is stuck with the stock. Please share and help out this poor Uncle David,” Cheah wrote. He also included his post with an image of Uncle David being surrounded several stockpiles of Pikachu and Charmander soft toys. The buyer apparently became uncontactable when the elderly uncle purchased the stocks.
Several netizens were very vocal with their feelings towards the irresponsible buyer. One Facebook user wrote, saying, “If you’re not going to buy then WTF would you order this many toys?”. Another user expressed sympathy, commenting, “Poor uncle, I hope he will (be able to) sell his stocks.”

Despite being diagnosed with leukaemia since March 2015, Uncle David has been consistently traveling from his home in Pandan Perdana, Cheras to Damansara Utama via public transportation in order to earn a living.
As aforementioned, Uncle David can usually be found sitting by HSBC Bank in Damansara Uptown in Petaling Jaya. Those who are interested can feel free to drop at 11am onwards.
Since Christmas is just 3 months away, perhaps you’d like to get a head start on your Christmas shopping list by stocking up on some adorable Pokemon plush toys and help out this sweet uncle at the same time.
