TomoTour: Disney edition

Feb 18 // Natalie Kipper
Little Beast Adoption (US$15) by LittleBeastSanctuary This 7-inch tall plush is a look-alike of Beauty and the Beast's beastly hero and is part of a line of "Fantasies" to adopt. Each toy in the series comes with an adoption certificate, like the one shown in the picture. At present, the shop lists only one of this particular plush in stock but it looks like you can custom order one, and even choose its colors, should they run out. Loki and Thor Sculpey Clay Minis (US$6 each) by SimplySculpy The famous Asgardian brothers, Loki (yes, I put him first because reasons) and Thor, now come in ropy-poly form. Made of sculpey clay, these figures measure 2-inches tall and 1-inch wide. Each character comes with their respective weapons and Loki even has his horned helmet. Custom Genie Jafar Funko POP! figure (US$40) by LFCustomPops This clever custom was born from one of the Genie figures in Funko's Disney POP! line. For those who don't recognize Aladdin's Jafar in this form, it comes from the evil vizier wishing to become a genie himself towards the end of the film. This figure stands about 4-inches tall and was customized with acrylic paint plus air-dry paper clay for Jafar's earring. Dead Men Tell No Tales outfit for Duffy the Disney Bear (US$15.95) by DSMClothier I don't know about you but I am always searching for more outfits for my Duffy the Disney Bear, particularly if they are themed to part of Disney lore. And that is just what you get with this headband and shirt set themed to the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. You will notice that several of the skulls in the shirt's print bare a resemblance to the talking skull and crossbones warning you on the first drop near the beginning of the ride. Gravity Falls' Mabel Pines plush (US$60) by SeamsLegitCrafts Mabel Pines of Gravity Falls and her fun sweaters were just begging to get a plush, in my mind. I think fans will agree that one of the key features of this 11-inch tall plush, aside from her cute face, is her hand-appliqued sweater. As a bonus, you can request other sweater designs from the show for your doll. Kingdom Hearts' Sora custom Munny (US$25) by DIYbyDuck Sora from Kingdom Hearts (yes, I count that as a Disney franchise) gets the Munny treatment. Taking into account that every outfit Tetsuya Nomura designs is impossibly complicated (don't get me wrong, I still love 'em), I'd say this artist did an impressive job. They even got Sora's gloves and side pouch. Kingdom Hearts' Heartless figure with GID eyes (US$15) by TheSassiestTreasures Fun fact: Kingdom Hearts' Heartless baddies look pretty dang cute when you put heart next to them. For a fun bonus, both the heart and the Heartless' eyes glow in the dark. While we don't know the exact measurements of the figure, the description mentions that they were made to appear in scale with the Kingdom Hearts Play Arts Kai figures. How clever! Kirby Sora plush (US$16.50) by Craftseed And now for something you don't see every day, here is a mash-up between Sora and Kirby (yeah, Nintendo's platforming pink round ball dude). While I would never in a million years have thought of this combination, the artist somehow managed to make it work. Sora's spiky hair kind of suits the little guy. I should note that you have the option to have the key blade attached to the plush or as a separate accessory. Did I miss your favorite Disney-themed Etsy treasure? Do you have a store on Etsy? Let us know in the comments!
