Touy Story 4: Your Guide to Bo Peep! (Thinkway, Mattel & Disney Store)


Hi everyone! Here's something I've been working on for all you Toy Story fans and collectors out there (myself included). With all the Toy Story 4 merch officially hitting stores this week, you may have already noticed that there are a ton of versions of the new Bo Peep being released—from full scale toys to smaller action figures; some with sounds and some without. Heck, even a Barbie style Bo with brushable rooted hair. Honestly it can be a bit overwhelming keeping track of them all, so I wanted to make this definitive guide to help you narrow down what you (or your kids) are personally looking for in a Bo Peep toy. I know it's helping me!

Maybe you're the type of completest collector that will end up buying all of these (if that's your thing, then more power to you). But maybe you're more like me and are just looking for one that's the best, most movie accurate version to add to your collection—and some of the smaller scale figures as well. Whatever type of collector you are and whatever your budget, there's certainly something here for everyone. 

Below you will see all the currently known toys of Bo Peep out there from three companies: Thinkway Toys, Mattel and the Disney Store. And though I don't have a picture of it yet, it has been confirmed that a Toy Story Signature Collection Bo Peep (with sheep) will also be released! There are no photos or additional info at this time, but I'll add it here as soon as it surfaces. 

Anyway, onto the toys!

Bo Peep Medium Plush (18.5" Tall)

Bo Peep Pixar Toy Box Action Figure (Stylized, Articulated, 5" Tall)

Out of these, I'm leaning towards the Disney Store version or the Thinkway Deluxe Talking Adventure Figure (though it's a bummer those ones don't come with Giggles McDimple). However, even though I haven't seen any photos yet, I'll probably end up going for the Signature Collection one regardless (which will hopefully be the best and have everything, including Giggles). I also plan on collecting the 7" action figure line too, so that Bo Peep will be a must.

Some other smaller Bo Peep toys to look out for are the Mattel Toy Story "minis" figure, the Imaginext figure, the LEGO minfigure and the Fisher-Price Little People figure. I'll be picking those up as well.

Which version (or versions) of Bo Peep are you planning on purchasing? Which one do you feel is the most screen accurate so far? Which of these toys is your personal favorite? Shout out all your thoughts below! Looking forward to hearing what you have to say.

Events: The Disney Store Toy Story 4 Merchandise Release—AVAILABLE NOW!

disney store toy story 4 merchandise release day

This past Monday (April 15th), the Disney Store launched phase one of their Toy Story 4 collection—online and in-store! Things are getting real over here folks...Toy Story 4 is upon us and coming faster than you can say "there's a snake in my boot." As if it wasn't surreal enough that the film is finally just about here after all the years, the merchandise hits stores. What a glorious sight!

I remember so vividly when Toy Story 3 merch hit stores back in 2010. From what we knew at the time, it was the very last Toy Story film—so I went crazy getting all I could (since I figured it would never be like that again). It was my last chance to stock up on anything and everything Toy Story. Boy was I wrong! It's back and bigger than ever. Between all the products you'll be able to find soon at Walmart and Target (April 22nd) and all this (plus more to come), the amount of items seems to be endless.

Anyway, I always love documenting the Disney Store in-store setups here on my blog and giving you a peek at what's available whenever new Pixar merch hits...this time would be no different! This tradition began years ago when I was searching online for pictures of older Disney Store merchandise/displays from some of my favorite Disney and Pixar films. I wanted to reminisce, but couldn't find anything...so I began doing this for myself and for anyone down the road who may come across this post. So far since I started this blog, I've done this for Monsters University, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, Finding Dory, Cars 3, Coco and Incredibles 2. It's a bit of history! Maybe you're coming across this post years from now looking to take a trip down memory lane like I had been trying to do. Who knows?

disney store toy story 4 merchandise release day

If you've seen what's on ShopDisney already, then you've seen all this. In fact, the website has even more than what you see above and below. However, it's one thing seeing all this stuff individually on the website; it's another to see it all displayed together in a giant themed section of the store. Totally magical!

Let's get to checking it all out a bit closer. I won't be buying a ton of this (there aren't many "must haves" for me here and a lot of it is apparel for kids, re-releases or items geared towards women/girls), but certainly expect full reviews soon of some of my fave items (like the working Toy Story crane game and possibly some of the plush). Speaking of the plush, one main item you'll notice missing here is the plush Forky. Can you believe he had already sold out by the time I visited last night? That's right, in one day he was gone.

Even though I won't be getting these since they're for kids, I found these Forky shoes hilarious and fun! These are gonna be a huge hit if the character turns out to be a fan fave.

And on this fixture, you'll notice some of the older "Road to Toy Story 4" items that have been released over the past couple months. They're kind of mixed in with the new stuff.

Toy Story 4: Band-Aids

toy story 4 band-aids
Box Side A

Yee-Haw! I've collected Pixar Band-Aids for years (my kids someday are gonna have quite the stash, probably enough to cover their whole childhood)—essentially all the Band-Aid packs from Toy Story 3 through now. Of course I've been checking Target often since I knew these Toy Story 4 ones would be coming, and I finally just found them!

The box is cute and the Band-Aid art is adorably stylized; however even though this is branded Toy Story 4, there's no Toy Story 4 specific characters or anything related to the new film in the slightest. Even the Bo Peep art is the original design and all the rendered versions of the characters (both on the box and Band-Aids themselves) definitely seem to be old character models. Either way though, the Band-Aid designs are colorful and well done featuring all our favorite classic characters.

It honestly seems like just yesterday I was picking up the Band-Aids for Toy Story 3—how has it been 9 years?!

Box Side B

Inside the box you'll find 20 bandages (assorted sizes—10 large, 10 small) with 12 unique designs. See them all below!

Be sure to visit your local store soon (Target or Walmart are your best bets) if you're interested in adding these to your home's first aid box. Retail price at Target is $3.29. If your little ones are already fans of Toy Story, then these might be a must have! If you're an adult and you're interested  in these for yourself, no shame. I encourage that.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! Will you be picking these up? What's your favorite design? I love the minimal one with the blue, orange and red character silhouettes probably the best.

Stay tuned for much more from Toy Story 4 right here soon!

Walt Disney World Pixar Autograph Book

Walt Disney World Pixar Autograph Book

Whether you're a kid or kid at heart, meeting your favorite characters at the Disney Parks never stops being magical! OK, maybe if the line is forever long, but still. If I see one of my favorite Pixar characters and the wait time is reasonable (20 minutes tops for me), I'll totally jump in and take some pictures. And now that I have this official Pixar Walt Disney World Autograph Book, I can start collecting autographs as well—something I've never really done too much of!

Thanks to my Disney Store "Ohana" (store 906), I now have this really cool book to bring on my next Disney trip. This was such a thoughtful going away present for when I left the store back in November. It's signed by all my fellow cast members with lots of well wishes! It's definitely a treasure filled with some magical memories and plenty of space still for some autographs and new magical memories to come.

Walt Disney World Pixar Autograph Book

The cover art is absolutely adorable featuring the Toy Story gang building Cinderella's castle out of blocks (and notice some spell out "Andy")—so clever! I love the touch of "the claw" topping the castle with the final piece. The back of the book is super cute too, featuring more Pixar pals: Nemo & Dory, Wall·E & Eve, Mike & Sulley and Dug & Russell! It doesn't get too much cuter.

Walt Disney World Pixar Autograph Book

The book is 4 3/4'' H x 6'' W x 1/2'' D in size, has 50 blank pages, features an elastic pen loop (pen not included, but I recommend THIS one with the same art) and originally retailed for $9.99.

This was available at ShopDisney.com, the Disney Store and Walt Disney World (but has since sold out in stores and online, not sure if you can still find it at the parks). You can still find it on
eBay using this direct link if you're interested.

Did you pick this up for your collection? Are you one that likes taking pictures with characters in the parks or not so much? Do you collect autographs? Let me know your thoughts down below!

Monsters University: Disney Parks Young Mike Wazowski Plush

disney parks mike wazowski plush

ROOOAAARRR! Tonight I'm taking a look at this Monster University Mike Wazowski plush, sold now exclusively at Disney Parks! I found this guy while I was visiting Walt Disney World last October and couldn't say no to picking it up. Mike is one of my favorite Pixar characters and this has to be one of the cutest plush versions of him to date!

Now that I'm reading more into this, I can't tell if this is suppose to be little Mike from the beginning of Monsters University or if it's just a cute/stylized version of the character in general. On the Shop Disney Parks app, he's called simply "Big Feet Mike Wazowski", nothing about him being the young version or from MU. Either way though, his cuteness is certainly inspired by little Mike from MU— even down to the crooked smile (though no braces). Regardless, this plush is extremely adorable (love the sparkly eye) and incredibly extra soft! Young fans will absolutely enjoy cuddling this monster.

His size is 13" tall (from bottom of feet to top of horns) x 8" wide (about 19" if you count the arm span). Retail is $26.99.

I purchased this at the "Merchant of Venus" shop in the Magic Kingdom (Tomorrowland), but I saw him all over the place. If you're going to Disney World soon, you can view all the locations this plush is currently in stock at by using the Shop Disney Parks app. Note: I'm not sure if this is also available at the Disneyland parks. Anyone know this?

For all you fans of Monsters Inc./University, I can't recommend this enough! Have you picked this up for your Disney/Pixar plush collection? Shout out your thoughts down below.

Toy Story: Sculpted Ceramic Drinkware Set

toy story woody and buzz boot glasses

Hey howdy hey everyone! Here's a fun little something I picked up a few weeks back during Zulily's latest Pixar sale...this Toy Story Sculpted Ceramic Drinkware Set of 2 (listed as "shot glasses") inspired by Buzz Lightyear's and Woody's iconic boot designs! I knew these would be so cute displayed on my Toy Story shelf in my home office, so I had to grab them while they were on sale for under $10 with free shipping.

Each boot glass stands at about 3" tall and holds 2 oz. Hand washing only is recommended.

How cute are these right? I thought this was such a unique find and was excited to share it with you all. I know a lot of Toy Story fans that will definitely want this set for their collection!

Even though this has since sold out at Zulily, you can actually find it on the Hot Topic site HERE (which I wasn't even aware of) for around $15 currently. I also noticed you can pick them up on Walmart.com HERE or Amazon using the link below.

Let me know your thoughts down in the comments! Will you be picking these up?
