Welcome to the latest chapter of my massive multi-post Disney Store 2013 Monsters University plush review! Today I'm taking a look at the "JOX"mini bean bag plush—full set six. If you haven't been following along (or just need to catch up), here's a little recap of who I've reviewed so far from the MU plush collection (by category):
- "Medium core" [$19.95]: Oozma Kappa, Mike & Sulley and Mrs. Squibbles
- "Small core" [$14.95] Dean Hardscrabble
- "Mini bean bag" [$9.95] : Archie the scare pig, Claire & Brock, "ROR" fraternity and the "HSS" sorority
In 2013, the Disney Store released every single one of them (yes, all 36) as a mini bean bag plush (one set of six every week for six weeks straight during that summer)! I've been doing posts on these for days now and I'm still not done yet. I feel like MU must hold the record for most characters released as plush at the Disney Store. Can anyone confirm this?
This JOX fraternity set includes members Roy "Big Red" O'Growlahan (leader), Baboso Goretega, George Sanderson (the same George seen in Monsters Inc. of course), Percy Boleslaw, Omar Harris and Dirk Pratt. Each is as detailed and awesome looking as the next! They all measure somewhere between 5" and 8" tall and originally retailed for $9.95 each.
I really like these character designs and the overall color scheme with these guys (traditionally, orange is my favorite color). Gotta love their classic "jock" look with those flashy letterman jackets! Hilariously spot on.
I know I say this every time, but there's no better way for me to say it... these are all quality stitched, have nice embroidered features, are vibrant in color, have decent likenesses to the actual characters and are made from some very soft materials overall. It's hard to choose, but I think my favorites in this round have to be George, Omar and Roy. What are yours?
If you're a Monsters University fan, I definitely recommend trying to track these down. This whole collection of fraternity/sorority bean bags is a lot of fun! I especially love how unique most of these characters are (I mean, have you ever seen any other products of Percy, Dirk, or Baboso?!). Just awesome.
Be sure to check out current eBay listings using this direct link (that's where I got mine here all these years later) and stay tuned for much more from this collection right here soon.
