Disney Parks Exclusive Pixar Character Globe (2007)—VIDEO REVIEW!


A Bug's Life "Don't Bug Me" Socks

Alright everyone, I swear this is the last Pixar socks post (for now at least). Here we have a fun pair of socks I was gifted a while back inspired by one of my favorite Pixar films, the criminally underrated A Bug's Life. The sock's design features Flik and the text "Don't Bug Me". 

Now I believe these were an Amazon find back when I got them, but at this point I only see them for sale on THIS site ("Novelty Socks For Less"). Anyway, I know, kind of random but I'm happy to have them in my collection!

Disney Parks Exclusive Toy Story Socks (Andy's Clouds & Pixar Ball)

Welcome back, everyone! Going along with the sock theme of my last post, here's another cool pair of Pixar socks I received a while back as a gift. Unlike the last pairs I showed off here, which were by STANCE, this pair is a Disney Parks product which sold exclusively at Disneyland and Disney World a year or so back (maybe they're even still available). 

The design here—featuring not one, but two Toy Story icons (the Toy Story/Pixar/Luxo ball and Andy's cloud wallpaper)–is just too cool. As you may know, I love ANYTHING with Andy's cloud design and ANYTHING with the Pixar when the two get combined like this? Well, needless to say these were a must have for me and I highly recommend snagging them if you're any kind of Pixar/Toy Story fan. You really can't go wrong here. 

If you're interested in these fun and cozy socks for your collection, there are a couple of eBay listings up currently (you can check them out HERE). Let me know what you think down below! 

Pixar 25th Anniversary STANCE Socks Collection

Released in 2020, in celebration of "Pixar's 25th anniversary" (even though what they technically meant was 25 years of Pixar theatrical films; 1995-2020 beginning with Toy Story of course), here we have this awesome collection of high quality socks from the ever popular company STANCE. There were seven pairs of socks released in this "25th" assortment, all seen below, featuring designs from: Toy Story (green army men), A Bug's Life (Heimlich), Monsters, Inc. (Boo & Sulley), Finding Nemo (Bruce, Marlin & Dory), Wall·E, Up (the Up house) and—last but not least—Luxo Jr. (Pixar logo, the Pixar lamp & the Pixar ball). The Luxo lamp design was an exclusive to a couple boxed sets (like this one I have here as well as one other), but all the other socks were released either in boxed sets or individually. 

Such fantastic designs, right?! I'm not usually a sock guy, but when I received these as a gift one Christmas a couple years back, I was actually pretty pumped. It was a really cool and unexpected surprise. All in all, I can't recommend these enough if you're able to track them down these days. I think any big Pixar fan could appreciate them. 


Let me know what you think down below! Did you pick up any pairs from this collection? What's your favorite of the designs? Looking forward to reading your thoughts.

Mattel Toy Story Buddy Packs Pull & Go RC

This Mattel Toy Story Buddy Pack Pull & Go RC vehicle was one of the last items I needed to wrap up my collection of Toy Story Buddy Pack toys, which I've been collecting since 2010! I picked up the other three Pull & Go vehicles back in day (check out my original blog post HERE), but for some reason I skipped this RC (with exclusive sitting Woody holding RC's remote). Over the years, this one (out of all the Pull & Go vehicles) has gotten the most rare/expensive, so I've had difficulty finding one for any reasonable price. All in all, I ended up paying $50 for it on eBay recently—still expensive I know— but a better price than I had seen previously. Ultimately, I just had to finally go for it after all these years and I have no regrets. I'm so happy to have it at long last! 

As some of you might know, since I have talked about it briefly on my channel, I do plan on creating a full YouTube video soon featuring my entire Buddy Pack collection. In my mind, I couldn't not have this one showcased (especially when I have all the other Buddy Pack vehicles), so that was admittedly motivation to purchase this as well. Look for that in the near future! 

Let me know your thoughts on Mattel's Toy Story Buddy Pack collection down below. Are you a fan?

Toy Story Ball Wireless Magnetic Charger by CASETiFY

Whether you call it the Pixar ball, the Toy Story ball or the Luxo ball, doesn't matter—you all know THAT iconic ball. And as a collector of said ball, I knew I HAD to get this CASETiFY Toy Story ball magnetic wireless phone charger as soon as I saw it. As you can tell from THIS video I posted on Instagram, I can't ever have enough Pixar ball related items and this is a most welcome addition to my collection.

It works great and I can't recommend it enough for any Pixar/Toy Story fan! To see it in action, check out THIS video I posted as a YouTube short recently. If you're interested in snagging this charger as well, here's the link to buy from CASETiFY directly. Retail price is $42.
