Toy Story 3: Trixie Plush (Disney Parks Exclusive)

Currently available exclusively at Disney Parks, here we have the new for 2017 Toy Story 3 Trixie plush! I was able to pick this up during our visit to Walt Disney World just last month (it can also be found at Disneyland/California Adventure as well). Trixie measures about 12.9" long x 6.5" tall x 6.4" wide and retails for $16.99.

Trixie is one of those few Toy Story characters, like Stinky Pete, Wheezy, Rocky and others, who has never gotten a true, mainstream, full size toy/replica release after all these years. Isn't that odd? How easy would it be to make her, right? In the film, she appears to be a pretty cheap plastic mold with minimal detail (right around Rex's size); a real life version of her wouldn't have to be much more than that in terms of quality. Also, all of Bonnie's other toys have gotten the replica treatment (heck, Mr. Pricklepants, Dolly and Buttercup were even released as part of the high end Thinkway Toys "Toy Story Collection")— so where's Trixie? OK, rant done. ;)

With that said, since no official full scale plastic Trixie toy has been made (yet), this is a great alternative for the time being (to at least have the character represented in your collection). That was my way of thinking—so I most definitely had to pick this up when I saw it!

As far as plushes are concerned, this one actually has a very good likeness to the character, feels sturdy yet soft and stands up very well on her own. I like the the high sheen of the fabric as well. Everything from the quality of the stitching to the embroidered features looks very nice here overall.

Whether you're looking for a alternative to a plastic Trixie toy for the time being (like me) or you just like the character and want this as part of your Disney plush collection (kids especially might just like her to cuddle with), I can highly recommend picking this up.

At Disney World, you can find her all over the place (just check the Shop Disney Parks app for the exact locations she's sold) and I'm sure she's just as easy to find currently in Disneyland as well. If you can't make it to either park soon, you can order this straight from the Shop Disney Parks app and have it shipped conveniently right to your home.

With Toy Story 4 a couple years away, maybe we can look forward to a "to scale" Trixie toy then...but for now, we'll just have to wait and see! Let me know your thoughts your thoughts in the comments below.
