Yesterday for "Tsum Tsum Tuesday", the Disney Store debuted their brand new collection of Finding Nemo themed tsums featuring eight never before released characters! I would have had this post up yesterday, but my Disney Store work shift last night lasted until 1:30 a.m.; at any rate though, I was happy to at least secure my full set before my shift started. In fact, I was able to snag the very last Squirt in stock at our store! I felt very lucky— I had no idea this set was going to be that popular.
Speaking of the characters, let's dive right into who we have here. This is a fantastically colorful set featuring some really fun designs of Nigel (the pelican), Sheldon (the sea horse), Gill (the moorish idol fish), Pearl (the flapjack octopus), Squirt (the sea turtle), Deb/Flo (the damselfish), Bruce (the great white shark) and, the fish killer herself, Darla (cue the screeching music).
These plushies are part of the Tsum Tsum "mini" collection and are only about 3 1/3" in size. Like usual, they're soft with embroidered features and retail for $5.95 each. Let's take a closer look at each one, shall we?
If you're wondering why this set doesn't include the film's main characters Nemo, Dory and Marlin (as well as Crush and Mr. Ray), it's because they were already released earlier this year in the Finding Dory assortment (see my full full post HERE).
I also wanted to note that the original reveal for these back in the summer included a "mine, mine, mine" seagull. I wonder what happened and why that one was cancelled from the set? You can see it included in this photo.
From Gill's gimpy fin/scars to Darla's hilarious braces/headgear, I love all the subtle details of each one of these! Which character is your favorite design? I think I'd have to say either Bruce or Squirt if I had to choose (though Darla is pretty hilarious). You can pick them up at your local Disney Store today or visit their website HERE to purchase. They are a must have for any fan/collector of the Nemo franchise.
