Presto: Alec Azam Plush

Presto was Pixar's 2008 theatrical short film, released in front of Wall-E. With its fast paced story, slapstick action and clever humor (not to mention the adorable bunny, Alec), this has got to be one of the most hilarious and one of my personal favorites of the Pixar shorts. 

In honor of the short, the Pixar Studios Store and the Disney Store (for a brief time) released this amazing Alec Azam plush back in 2008. Alec is very well made and detailed, standing at 25 inches tall.

He also includes a tag (too cool to remove) featuring the poster seen at the end of the short. In addition, the tag opens up to reveal a still from the film.

I always love getting products with the "Pixar Short Films" logo on them because they're so few and far between! It's a rare treat.

 Once again, I have to give a huge thanks to my wife for this amazing Easter surprise!

This is one out of seven "short films plush" that I've been lucky enough to own. The other ones are the Gopher from Boudin' , Stu from Lifted, Bambino from La Luna, Bird from For the Birds and the Jackalope/lamb 2-pack from Boundin'

This plush is very difficult to find and when it does show up on eBay, it sells between $75-$100. Since it's from the Pixar Studio's store, it's one of my most rare and prized pieces in my collection! I can't wait to put it on display.

Currently there is one on eBay if you're interested in this plush (but hurry! It won't be there for long). It's selling for $99.95 (with $8.75 shipping unfortunately). For this and future listings, use the eBay link below to support this site:

Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you continue to come back daily and enjoy the site. Much more to come! 


  1. Who doesn't love this Presto plush? I just wish that they made more items from this a cage for Alec, maybe a carrot or a wizard hat for him. I know those are all far fetched, but you know how I love my accent pieces (like you do).

    By the way - I've been thinking that I need to get a really slick top hat to display mine in.

    Also, you're amassing quite the collection of the short plush figures - just watch out for my "over bid" if the knick knack plush shows back up on eBay if you try and win it! :) Ha!

  2. I know right!? This thing is great. I love how big this plush is as well. And as far as the accessories go, I'm 100% with you. Like you said, that kid of stuff is right up my alley! We definitely have that in common, as far as accent pieces (ice wording by the way, that's a great way to describe it).

    And sticking out of a top hat? Genius! I might have to steal that idea someday when I have him on display : )

    Aw yes, the mysterious Knick Knack plush. That thing is insane! The only picture I've ever seen online is that one from the Pixar Planet forums. That has got to be the hardest plush to come by, by far. I have wait years for that thing to show up online by following the search on eBay but nothing! Oh and I better warn you, you watch out for MY overbid if that thing shows up, ha! I have a feeling it would be down to me and you. I don't know if I'd pay more than $120 for it though as tempting as it would be. We'll just have to see if it ever shows!

    Thanks for the comment man, good times

  3. I had the opportunity to buy the Knick Knack plush for $150 and dragged my feet on it and it sold for $300 after that (no joke). Ugh!

  4. Oh that's right!! I think I did hear about that story. That's insane! What year was that? Was it eBay?

  5. Yeah, that was about a year-and-a-half ago and it was on eBay!! The guy counter offered with a $150 and had it at a buy it now for $300. While I was sitting there thinking about it, someone else bought it for the full amount! Ugh!
