TSUM TSUM





I've mentioned in a few of my previous posts that I absolutely love to collect things. I'm a huge hoarder of all things science fiction, Disney, Alice in Wonderland and more. So when the Disney Store released an adorable new addition to its family I just had to have them!

TSUM TSUM are stackable little soft toys that are like fat baby versions of all your favourite Disney characters. They come in three sizes, small, medium and large, and I collect the smallest ones. I think they’re extra cute and the big ones would take up too much of the already limited storage space in my flat!

The small TSUM TSUMs are £3 from the Disney Store, or 5 Euro for my Irish followers. They’re each about 2.3/3 inches long and all come with adorable Japanese style features. You can also get TSUM TSUM accessories, stationary and other bits, but I’m only really interested in the actual plushies.

The first addition to my collection was Dumbo, my favourite Disney character of all-time. I have a love hate relationship with the Dumbo movie, it’s such a fun film with a lovely story and brilliant animation, but it’s just so damn sad!

Still to this day I can’t sit through the scene where Dumbo’s mother rocks him through her cage bars without turning into a blubbering mess! I'm tearing up just thinking about it!

Despite me being an emotional state it’s still one of my favourite films and I have a collection of all the different Dumbo soft toys Disney produce. So it seemed fitting that my first TSUM TSUM was Dumbo. He was from the Liverpool One Disney Store.

The next addition to my TSUM TSUM family was Marie from the Aristocats and she was from the Disney Store in the Trafford Centre. This was one of my favourite films growing up and I still know every song in it by heart.

I love all of the Disney cats, so much that my actual cat is named after one, Figaro – after the lovely little feline from Pinocchio. Figaro's name also comes from the lyrics of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody - "Galileo Figaro" - I'm a die hard Queen fan. So I think Figaro will have to be the next TSUM TSUM added to the collection.

I know that Disney have also released a Cheshire Cat and an Alice in Wonderland TSUM TSUM but I haven’t spotted them in stores yet! But they will be obvious choices to add to my little pack.

I know this is a very different post to my usual content but I wanted to mix things up a bit and post about things I really enjoy – like nerdy collections. So let me know if you enjoyed it in the comment box below! Also let me know if you collect TSUM TSUMs or anything else! I love to know what other people collect so leave your comment and link in the box below!
