Link Old Grow Your Own Deku Tree! (Zelda OoT Promotional Item)

*Not sure if this is the right section, feel free to move*


Last night i went to my local game shop and purchased my Nintendo 3DS + OoT 3D (Amazing by the way) for 200 (around $300) Pretty good i thought.

Eithercase, it came with alot of promotional junk which one seemed very intresting and i thought i'd share with you.



As you can see there, i got a neck strap, a working ocarina + a tub/jar of something.

Minute i read the tin i started laughing to myself.


Yes that's right, Grow your own Deku Tree right here.
Just add water and after 8-12 days you shall have your very own forest protector.

I'm curious to grow this, as i'd love to know if it actually gets the eyebrows + tash :P

Thoughts? Comments? Feel free to share your own wacky promotional items.

Sweet Nayru's Love, that's a lot of stuff.
Be sure to keep us posted on the progress of the tree. I'd like to see how that turns out.

Here in Australia, we have to wait until the 30th, and we don't get all that lovely gear.

I'm defiantly going to grow it. I'll update every now and then + thats bad man, the game is really a huge improvement over N64 + Nostalgia value. My problem is eyes start to tire causing me to turn the 3D off. Feels like im denying the better part of the system lol

From what i can see just a lot of dirt. I imagine the seed is at the bottom

The seeds were a Greek promotional item.
Also, the tree it grows is an acacia for anyone interested, i.e. it looks nothing like the Deku Tree. They'd have been better off with an oak. I expect they chose acacia because it's very fast-growing, though.

And here I thought that getting Club Nintendo's soundtrack deal was the best deal.

Keep us updated on this. If it grows an oaken mustache, then I will lol.
