Toy Story: Pizza Planet Wallet
Released last summer for a limited time, here we have a unique item that not a ton of people know about...this officially licensed Toy Story inspired Pizza Planet wallet! I missed out on this the first go-around last year and had been looking for it to come back in stock for a long time. I was thrilled to have gotten it for my birthday this past month.
This is a light weight bi-fold wallet made from some kind of faux leather material. Whatever it is, it seems to be nicely made and pretty sturdy in quality. It's made to look a bit grungy and worn, so don't worry, those aren't real pizza stains on there. Original retail price was $20.
On the front it reads "Pizza Planet Delivery Shuttle Navigator" and features the restaurant's iconic logo. On the reverse side it says "Serving Your Local Star Cluster." It looks like it could have been in the Pizza Planet shuttle driver's pocket for years, but I think that's exactly what the makers were going for. I'm all about the distressed look. I love it!
I'm use to my tri-fold wallet, but there's still a decent amount of room here for your license, cards and cash. The pockets seem a bit tight, but maybe they'll loosen up with use.
Overall, this is a fun, very cool looking item. However, if you're looking for an actual, high quality leather wallet, you'll be disappointed here. This is more of a novelty item, but it serves its function nonetheless. As an avid fan of Toy Story, this was a must have for me and I'm glad to have it as part of my collection.
This is currently sold out again just about everywhere, but keep a look out on sites like Wicked Clothes, Cake Worthy and eBay. This was available at the Science of Pixar exhibit for a short time last year as well, so be sure to check there if you have the opportunity to go. Best of luck on the hunt!
