Monsters University: Disney Store "PNK" Mini Bean Bag Plush

Monsters University Disney Store "PNK" Mini Bean Bag Plush

A year ago right around this time, I reviewed each of the 2013 Disney Store Monsters University fraternity/sorority mini bean bag plush—that is except the "PNK" (Python Nu Kappa) sorority since they were the only ones I had a real issue tracking down. I was finally able to snag this full set of them on eBay recently (for a great price I might add) and couldn't be happier that my collection is now complete! It's very difficult to find a set of all six of these girls together these days.

Since it's been a while, you may want to refresh your memory and check out the other reviews I posted from this collection last year: "ROR" fraternity, "HSS" sorority, "JOX" fraternity, "EEK" sorority and the "OK" fraternity. You can also visit my posts on the mini bean bags of Archie the scare pig and Claire & Brock, which are essentially one offs from this same collection.

Remember in Monsters University, there are six fraternities/sororities that compete in the Scare Games: Roar Omega Roar (ROR), Jaws Theta Chi (JOX), Oozma Kappa (OK), Python Nu Kappa (PNK), Slugma Slugma Kappa (EEK) and Eta Hiss Hiss (HSS). There are six members in each "house", meaning of course there are 36 Scare Games competitors total. 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—each character was sold separately). I didn't collect them at the time (which I regretted), so I've spent the last year and a half finding them through online sellers.

This Python Nu Kappa sorority set includes members Naomi Jackson, Crystal Du Bois, Britney Davis, Taylor Holbrook, Carrie Williams (leader) and Heather Olson. They all measure about 11" tall and originally retailed for $9.95 each.

Like usual, these Disney Store plushies are quality stitched, have embroidered features (not the best likenesses, but decent) and are made from a variety of soft materials. When I first got these a week or two ago, the hair on each one was a GIANT MESS (they were "used" after all; you know how doll hair gets if it's neglected). So one afternoon, my wife and I took the time to wash/ condition them, brush them and even trim them. Lastly I picked up some plastic hair ties to tie their hair back and... voila! We got them looking more than half way decent. You really should have seen them before we fixed them up (I should have taken some "before and after" shots)—they were not looking so hot.

If you're a Monsters University fan, I definitely recommend trying to track these down (little girls especially might love these). This whole collection of fraternity/sorority bean bags is a lot of fun! I really love how unique most of these characters are (I mean, have you ever seen any other products of Taylor, Heather or Britney?). Very cool.
