Well guys, we made it. Maybe you're sick of them, maybe you've been enjoying them—either way, today is my final post (for now) covering the Disney Store's 2013 Monster's University sorority/fraternity mini bean bag plush! Tonight I'm taking a look at, finally some characters you actually know and love, the "OK"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 entire 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, "HSS" sorority, "JOX" fraternity and the "EEK" 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 several 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 Oozma Kappa fraternity set includes members Mike Wazowski, James P. Sullivan (better known as Sulley), Don Carlton, Terry & Terri Perry, Art and Scott "Squishy" Squibbles. Each plush is as detailed and awesome looking as the next! They all measure somewhere between 7.5" and 10" tall (Squishy being the shortest and Terry & Terri the tallest) and originally retailed for $9.95 each.
I saved this one for last (again, for now...more on that below) because, well, for obvious reasons. This is THE team of Monsters U. Can you say squad goals? Mike, Sulley and the whole Oozma brotherhood are the heart of the film. Love these guys.
These are quality stitched, have nice embroidered features, are vibrant in color, are made from some very soft materials (I especially Art's soft fur), and (for the most part) have decent likenesses to the actual characters (I don't love Sulley's look completely, but know he's hard to get right. I had to have him nonetheless though). As far as favorites this time around, I'm going to have to go with the hilarious Art (one of my fave characters in the entire film), Terry & Terri and Mike.
Ok, now I know you've been thinking to yourself "what about PNK?!" You're absolutely right. I unfortunately had to leave them out for now because I have yet to find the full PNK mini plush collection online. They're extremely difficult to find! I have found some, but not all. So until I find all six of those spunky PNK girls, I'm going to hold off on my review. Hopefully you can look for a full post on them right here in the [relatively] near future!
At any rate, if you're a Monsters University fan, I definitely recommend trying to track these down. This whole collection of fraternity/sorority bean bags is tons of fun! If you're interested, be sure to check out current eBay listings using this direct link (that's where I got mine here all these years later).
If you've been following along daily, thanks for sticking with me! If you're just stumbling across this post looking for info, I hope this was informative. Thanks for dropping by—I'll catch you in my next post!
