Here we have it, I've finally added the Disney Parks For the Birds plush to my collection! For the Birds is the classic and hilarious short film that was released in theaters back in 2001 with Monsters Inc. The Film was directed by Ralph Eggleston.
This was available exclusively at the Disney Parks and Downtown Disney back in 2010. Somehow I missed it when it was released and it has taken me well over two years now to finally track it down on eBay. I'm thrilled to have it now though and it doesn't disappoint!
The colors, softness and design are all top notch. As you can probably tell, the likeness isn't perfect, but it's still very recognizable and looks close enough to the birds in the film.
Best of all? It squeaks! If you remember from the short, they make a hilarious squeaking sound that very much resembles the sound this plush makes when you squeeze its belly.
This is my first collectible from For the Birds and one out of seven short films plush I've been lucky enough to own. The other ones are the Gopher from Boundin', Alec the bunny from Presto, Stu from Lifted, Bambino from La Luna and the Jackalope/lamb 2-pack from Boundin'
In addition, there were also a couple of For the Birds released exclusively at the Pixar Studio Store. I've never seen these plush pop up on eBay, but I have seen a few images of them. Check them out over at the Pixar Planet Forum.

You can find this plush on eBay, but it only pops up about two or three times a year. If you do see it come up and really love it, don't hesitate! This is a pretty rare item and usually sells between $25-$40. You can search for current listing using the link below:
As a side note, today is my one year anniversary since I started this blog! This is my 409th post, I can't believe I've been able to post about that many items and how fast it has gone. There's still much more to come, I'm not stopping here, so stay tuned for more!
