Wall·E: Eve Funko "POP!" Review (2019 BoxLunch Earth Day Exclusive)

funko pop earth day eve

Directive? I couldn't let Earth Month go by without reviewing the brand new BoxLunch Gifts Earth Day Exclusive Eve Funko POP! I cut it close given that it's the last day of April, but I made it. Now let's get into some of my overall thoughts and take a closer out-of-the-box look at this fantastic vinyl figure.

When I first saw that this Eve was being released, I couldn't be more thrilled as I knew it would pair perfectly with last year's Earth Day Exclusive Wall·E! This is a brilliantly updated version of the character with a much cleaner look compared to the original Eve Funko POP! figure (which was one of my very first posts here back in 2013). I love the addition of Eve holding the boot plant (as I did with Wall·E), but my favorite aspect of this new version is the clear stand that gives Eve a floating effect! Flawlessly executed.

Once again, this release is also extra cool because the vinyl figure itself is actually made from (in observance of Earth Day) 20% recycled material, while the box is 80% recycled material for conscious collecting! The blister/window box is PET material and is 100% recyclable. How cool right? I love the overall earthy look of the packaging—I usually open my "POP!" figures and toss the boxes (I know, some of you may say blasphemy to that), but I think I might have to keep this one.

This Eve was released on April 18th in-store and online and is number 552 in the massive Disney/Pixar Funko "POP!" line. She is about 4" tall and retails for $12.90.

Take a closer look at this cutie out of the box below!

Last year, the Earth Day Wall·E figure sold out VERY quickly and collectors who missed out were clamoring for it to be stocked again. This Eve release, however, has not been quite as popular. It's a shame since it's so cool! The good news for you though (if you haven't ordered one yet) is that she's still in stock on the BoxLunch site HERE. I can't recommend it enough!

What are your thoughts on this new release? Did you pick one of these up for your Disney Funko collection? Shout it out down below!

Toy Story 4: Forky Toys—Your Guide to All the Versions!

f
toy story 4 forky toys

"Why am I alive?" Good question Forky, hopefully we find out the answer in less than two months when we all see Toy Story 4! In the meantime, tons of collectors and kids alike already love you and are clamoring for your merch— and there is A LOT of it out there. "Which Forky should I buy?" is the question on all Toy Story fans' minds right now. I know it might be overwhelming, but don't fret! I've created this guide to all the main Forky toys currently out there (just like I recently did with Bo Peep and Bunny & Ducky) to hopefully help you narrow it down and decide which one (or two or three) fits your needs. Honestly, this guide is just as much for me as it is for you!

Whatever type of collector you are and whatever your budget, there's certainly something here for everyone. Do you want a large Forky or a small one? Do you want one that talks? Do you want one that moves? Do you want one that moves AND talks? Maybe you want plush Forky to cuddle with? Or maybe you'd like to create your own Forky? You name it, they made it.

Below you will see all the currently known toys of Forky out there from the four main companies: Thinkway Toys, Mattel, the Disney Store and Just Play Toys. I've done the best I could getting the right sizes listed here, but some of them may be approximate. Either way, they're certainly close enough and you'll get the idea.

Anyway, onto the toys!

Toy Story 4: Slow Foam Plush Bunny (From Just Play Toys)

toy story 4 soft slow foam plush bunny

New for Toy Story 4 from Just Play Toys, here we have a new range of adorable (and oh so soft and squishy) "slow foam" plush! This collection of round, stylized plushies has just been released featuring Woody, Alien, Jessie and Hamm—with Ducky and Bunny (and presumably more) on the way soon. I was given this complimentary sample of Bunny from Just Play Toys at the TTPM event this past Thursday and was excited to share more about the line with you!

Each character is about 4" tall (Bunny here is the exception because of his ears—he's about 6.5" tall) and has a 12" diameter. They're made up of slow rise foam on the inside and soft fabric/embroidered details on the outside. Retail is $7.99 each. Kids will love to squish them and watch as they slowly rise back to their original round shapes! Even for adult Toy Story collectors, these are fun to squeeze and display on a desk or shelf.

As of right now, you can pick up this assortment on the Target website (they currently have Hamm, Jessie and Woody in stock) or Amazon (they have Alien and Woody in stock; links below). I'm sure they'll become more widely available soon and, as mentioned, with even more characters!

Let me know your thoughts down in the comments! Will you be picking any of these up for your little ones (or yourself)?

Pixar Sticky Note Memo Desk Cube

Disney Pixar Sticky Note Memo Desk Cube

Need to make a quick note, reminder or list? This cute Pixar "memo cube" (made up of sticky notes) is perfect for any home or work office desk! There are 700 paper sheets total that make up a 2 3/4'' sized cube—each side with a favorite Pixar character (featuring the same cute square designs we've seen on products since 2015). There's Dug, Lotso, Rex and Wall·E! I'm excited to put this on my desk at work on Monday so I can finally bring a little Pixar love/magic to my standard work day.

This was available at BoxLunch Gifts last summer and then at the Disney Store/ShopDisney.com throughout the fall. It eventually went on a pretty steep clearance sale, so naturally it has since sold out. Original retail was $6.95. Thanks to my in-laws who gave this to me in my stocking this past Christmas! It was the perfect stuffer. 

Check out all the different angles below...

If you're interested in grabbing this for your collection, there are still a couple options. At this point you can find this on eBay using this direct link or on a website I came across called disneykidhouse.com. Definitely pick it up if you missed it originally.

Let me know your thoughts down below and be sure to check back daily for more from my Pixar collection!

Toy Story 4: Pepperidge Farm Goldfish NOW AVAILABLE!

toy story 4 goldfish

For the fourth year in a row (following Finding Dory, Cars 3 and Incredibles 2), Pepperidge Farm has partnered with Disney·Pixar to bring you some "Special Edition" Cheddar Goldfish—this year inspired by none other than Toy Story 4! The eye catching packaging celebrates the new film and features Bo Peep, Woody and Buzz in action with some subtle carnival accents in the top corner. The goldfish themselves are made up of four styles of crackers: traditional orange goldfish (the classic snack that smiles back), blue goldfish and yellow Buzz Lightyear & Woody shaped goldfish; with no artificial colors I might add (only colors sourced by plants).

On the back you'll find some other favorite faces (new and old) including Dolly, Trixie, Jessie, Peas in a Pod, Hamm, Alien, Bullseye, Forky, Rex, Bo Peep, Buzz and Woody. There's also a little "Help Your Kids Find..." game that little ones will certainly enjoy while they're munching.

Here are the actual Goldfish out of the bag. Cute and tasty!

Prices may vary by location, but I picked these up at my local grocery store (ShopRite) for $2.49. Apparently they should be hitting all major retailers (including Walmart and Target) on May 1st.

I'm a big kid at heart (like all Disney fans), so I could not resist these. Goldfish crackers are timeless anyway, really any age can enjoy them right? I can't recommend these enough for all you Toy Story fans alike out there. As seen below, even Forky has been enjoying them with me! And come on, he's a spork who can't even eat.

Will you be picking these up for your pantry? They'd even make the perfect movie snack for when the film hits theaters on June 21st. Something to keep in mind! Shout out you thoughts down below.

Toy Story 4: Your Guide to Bo Peep Toys! (Thinkway, Mattel & Disney Store)


Hi everyone! Here's something I've been working on for all you Toy Story fans and collectors out there (myself included). With all the Toy Story 4 merch officially hitting stores this week, you may have already noticed that there are a ton of versions of the new Bo Peep being released—from full scale toys to smaller action figures; some with sounds and some without. Heck, even a Barbie style Bo with brushable rooted hair. Honestly it can be a bit overwhelming keeping track of them all, so I wanted to make this definitive guide to help you narrow down what you (or your kids) are personally looking for in a Bo Peep toy. I know it's helping me!

Maybe you're the type of completest collector that will end up buying all of these (if that's your thing, then more power to you). But maybe you're more like me and are just looking for one that's the best, most movie accurate version to add to your collection—and some of the smaller scale figures as well. Whatever type of collector you are and whatever your budget, there's certainly something here for everyone. 

Below you will see all the currently known toys of Bo Peep out there from three companies: Thinkway Toys, Mattel and the Disney Store. And though I don't have a picture of it yet, it has been confirmed that a Toy Story Signature Collection Bo Peep (with sheep) will also be released! There are no photos or additional info at this time, but I'll add it here as soon as it surfaces. UPDATE—added below.

Anyway, onto the toys!

Bo Peep Pixar Toy Box Action Figure (Stylized, Articulated, 5" Tall)
Bo Peep Figure from Disney Store Deluxe Figure Set (3"-4" Tall)

Out of these, I'm leaning towards the Disney Store version or the Thinkway Deluxe Talking Adventure Figure (though it's a bummer those ones don't come with Giggles McDimple). However, even though I haven't seen any photos yet, I'll probably end up going for the Signature Collection one regardless (which will hopefully be the best and have everything, including Giggles). I also plan on collecting the 7" action figure line too, so that Bo Peep will be a must. UPDATE—Signature Bo photos added above. It ended up being her classic look of course!

Some other smaller Bo Peep toys to look out for are the Mattel Toy Story "minis" figure, the Imaginext figure, the LEGO minfigure, Funko POP!/mystery mini vinyl figures and the Fisher-Price Little People figure. I'll be picking those up as well.

Which version (or versions) of Bo Peep are you planning on purchasing? Which one do you feel is the most screen accurate so far? Which of these toys is your personal favorite? Shout out all your thoughts below! Looking forward to hearing what you have to say.
