Are you as excited as I am for all the films coming out this year? I am super excited and so are Steve and the kids. One film we are looking forward to in particular is the new Dumbo which is released very very soon. Just Play have released a new plush collection and we were sent one of the products from the range.
We were sent the Dumbo Live Action Flapping Ear Feature Plush which retails at £29.99 and is available from Smyths Toys here. Now I have to admit I absolutely fell in love with this plush when it arrived. The large bright ears and those super cute oversized ears – it is easy to see why everyone loves Dumbo as a character. It was a struggle to get a picture of the ears covering Dumbo’s face as they move so quickly but you can see how large the ears actually are, just like we know them to be in the story.
This plush toy sits at 13″ tall and has beautiful detailing. Olivia is absolutely enamoured with Dumbo, she’s always cuddling the plush or pressing the button in Dumbo’s foot to move the ear. Sometimes she will get me to press the button instead and giggle away as Dumbo makes some different elephant noises and flaps his ears.
She’s proud as punch of her Dumbo plush and has been showing anyone who comes to our house. My Mum is a big Dumbo fan too and it almost seemed as if Olivia was going to lose her toy and Nanny was going to sneak it home with her, haha!
I really do think this plush range from Just Play is great – it’s good quality, it is affordable and will be in high demand for sure when the film is released, as other Disney films have proved in the past. The sounds and flapping are not annoying like some toys can be – they last for just enough time to be entertaining for the child but not annoying for the adult.
I’ll definitely be checking out some of the other items from the plush collection – this has been so popular with Olivia that I am sure she (and her brother) would probably love some more toys from the range.
Will you be watching the film when it is released?
