As of the time of this posting, many of the Disney Theme Parks are still closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. So many are suffering withdrawals! What can pick up our spirits? LGM!
One way to combat this social problem is to get your Disney Fix some other way. Like, say… by visiting the Disney Store and buying way too much stuff. Well, that’s my fix, anyway.
Who can resist LGM dressed as your favorite Disney Pixar characters?!? Each came with a tag bearing the name of the character. Take a look for yourself and see if you don’t agree:
I didn’t even know this line of Remix character plushes existed until I unwittingly walked into a local Disney Store. Okay, more like I walked in willingly, but I still feel like they saw me coming and put out way too many cute and irresistible things!
2004 saw the release of one of my all-time favorite Pixar films, The Incredibles. Who wouldn’t look good in this fantastic red costume designed by the one and only Edna E. Mode?
Add the outstretched arms begging for a hug and I contend that no one could resist taking one of these little guys home!
But it gets cuter!
2009 gave us one of the funniest tear-jerkers to come out of the Pixar Studios. UP introduced several adorable characters, like Dug and Kevin, but the Wilderness Explorer named Russell may just have them both beat.
And that hug thing again!
2015 gave me my Anger Buddy in the form of ANGER from the film Inside Out. I can’t explain why I love this guy so much! But I’ve collected an impressive amount of his merchandise.
The contrast between the ever-optimistic LGMs and the ever-explosive Anger is just a combination I couldn’t resist!
But just forget the hug.
A Limited Release from the Disney Store, these little plush are just 8″ tall but pack a whopping price tag of
Yup. I paid $19.99 CAN each for these three LGM cuties. Let me do the math: That adds up to… too much!
But can you blame me (along with my wife) for spending the money? Other characters include Boo and Sulley (Monsters Inc.), Woody (Toy Story), Lotso (Toy Story 3), Merida (Brave), Carl Fredricksen (UP), Wall-E (Wall-E), and Nemo (Finding Nemo).
Currently there is a promotion where if you buy over $50.00 worth of merchandise, you get a coupon for 50% off your next purchase of $50.00, making the purchase only $25.00. So I may be returning to a Disney Store near me to buy Woody and Carl. Unless my wife reads this post before October 4th when the coupons become valid!
Which ones would you have bought?
Update: I done did it! Check out Woody and Carl here!
