The keychains are comprised of Red Pikmin, Yellow Pikmin, Blue Pikmin, Rock Pikmin, and Winged Pikmin types, each with either a leaf, bud, or flower, bringing the total number of keychains to fifteen. They are designed to clip onto each other from top to bottom so that one can create "ropes" of Pikmin. These were common to find in Japanese dollar stores.

Takara Tomy Arts Pikmin keychains and mascot straps
On March 18th, 2002, Takara Tomy Arts released a set of Pikmin mini-figures attached to a chain and clip. The figures consist of a Red Pikmin, a Yellow Pikmin, and a Blue Pikmin, each with either a leaf, bud, or flower, as well as a red pellet, yellow pellet, and blue pellet and an Olimar figure. The keychain clip would come with either two or three figures, as well as a tag with the Japanese Pikmin logo. Keychain clips that contained Olimar would also come with one other figure, while keychain clips that did not would consist of three various figures.
In July of 2004, these mini-figures were re-released for Pikmin 2 with more variants, and this time as phone charms. The new variants included Purple Pikmin, White Pikmin, and Bulbmin, with leaf, bud, and flower variants, as well as a figure for Louie and the President. The logo on the tag was updated with the Japanese Pikmin 2 logo.
Due to the popularity of the first set of mini-figures, as well as the recent release of Pikmin 3, in June 2013 the figures were released a third time, again based on the first Pikmin game. Once again debuting as phone charms, they include Olimar attached to the strap, with a Pikmin attached to a new ring on the bottom of Olimar's feet. The set contains nine different keychains which feature Olimar and one Pikmin. The Pikmin with Olimar varies between a Red Pikmin, Yellow Pikmin, or Blue Pikmin, and has either a leaf, bud, or flower.
