Traditionally at the Disney Store, with each new animated film release (be it Disney or Pixar) comes a series of plush toys; and with so many colorful, unique characters in 2013's Monsters University, you just knew there would be a lot of them...and there was.
In late April 2013, just two months before the theatrical release of MU, these plush hit the Disney Store shelves along with the rest of the first round of merch based on the film (seen in my post HERE). Though there were many other plush released, today we're just taking a look at the Oozma Kappa medium sized plush including Art, Don Carlton, Squishy and Terry and Terri (which all retailed for $19.95). A look at many more is to come...so stay tuned!
These are some of my absolute favorite Disney Store Pixar plush of all time. The characters and their designs lend themselves perfectly to plush toys in general and the Disney Store really delivered on the likenesses and overall quality of each one. The stitching is great and the materials used are all pretty fantastic. I especially love Art's soft, vibrant purple fur and flexible legs.
Let's take a detailed look at each one—
Art (about 12" tall and 26" wide when completely spread put)
Don Carlton (about 10" tall)
Squishy (about 10" tall)
Terry & Terri (about 16" tall)
As usual, each plush has the "Disney Store Genuine Original Authentic" patch. Even though these haven't been available in stores for years now, you can still find them pretty easily on eBay for decent prices. Check out this direct link to current listings or find some of them on Amazon using the links below!
Highly recommend to any Monsters U fan.
