Wow, it's hard to believe it's been over three months since my Finding Dory birthday party and I'm still reviewing the merch that I got! This one has been a long time coming. Released back in April, here we have the Disney Store exclusive "Feature Dory" talking plush toy!
This Dory plush is super soft with embroidered features, though keep in mind that it also has moving internal parts. With the press of a button (near her right fin), her fins and mouth move as she says one of seven phrases [at random]:
- "Hi! I'm Dory. Excuse me! Hi. So, I'm looking for my family. Guess we'll hang out another time. Don't be a stranger!"
- "Hey man, don't touch my tag! Wow...Hank, I'm so glad I found you"
- "You know I speak whale. Helllooooooo....Destinyyyy. Why thaaannkkk yoouuuu."
- "Hello there! Do you know me? Oh no, I'm sorry. I, I suffer from short term memory loss. You found me! How did you find me?"
- "I remembered something! I actually remembered something! Something important! Then we better get going. Wooohoo! I'm sorry...did I forget again?"
- "Hello? Hello? Can you help me? Hey guys I'm looking for my family. Got it- what was the first part again?"
- [Speaking whale] "Youuuuurrrrr'eeee Welccoooommmee. It's ooookkkkaayyy....I found Marlin and Nemoooo..."
Of course she has her signature 3181 Marine Life Institute transfer tag (made of plastic). Nice detail!
Lets take her out of the box for an even closer look...
Dory is a medium size plush measuring 7'' H x 14'' L x 11'' W (fin to fin). Under her belly is a velcro pouch where you'll find the battery pack and on/off switch. She requires three AA batteries (which are included).
This is a fantastic product and a no brainer for any Dory fan! She looks great, sounds great (love the actual Ellen DeGeneres dialogue) and looks really cool when she moves and talks. You can most likely still find this at your local Disney Store or online HERE (currently on sale for just $16.99- originally $29.95).
