Boundin: Gopher Plush

I'm very thrilled to have recently added yet another rare Pixar short films plush to my collection...the 2004 Pixar Studio Store exclusive Gopher from Boundin'!

 Boundin' is Pixar's classic short that was released in front of  The Incredibles in theaters. It tells the simple story of a little lamb dealing with the changes and ups and downs in life and a wise Jackalope who teaches the lamb how to he can approach them with a positive to "rebound" from life's troubles. It's a very sweet film with a relatable and universal message for all.

This plush follows the "Boundin Buddies" plush 2-pack (featuring the Jackalope and Lamb) that I was lucky enough to get back in January this year. I have been waiting ever since then to track this one down and I can now say my Pixar Studios Boundin' plush collection is complete!

Like the Boundin' Buddies set, this little guy is made by Pixar's "go to" company, Thinkway toys. Including his hair, he stands at about 5 1/2 inches tall and about 3 1/4 inches wide. He is a soft, polyester material.

His likeness is pretty close to the film, but (as seen in the screen shot above), this gopher has taller hair and blue, rather than brown, eyes.

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

If you're a fan of this short film and would like to add this plush to your collection, be sure to keep checking eBay periodically by using the link below:
