Disney Tsum Tsum Information
Disney Tsum Tsum has rapidly become one of the most successful plush lines in Disney Store history since their debut in 2013. This has prompted category expansions into softlines, accessories, home décor and more. Other Tsum Tsums include classic and new Disney and Marvel characters with a unique Japanese aesthetic. The first collection of Star Wars assortment will serve as the evergreen Star Wars characters (and certainly ones I am most familiar with). Fans will be familiar with #TsumTsumTuesdays where a new collection of the adorable plush is unveiled the first Tuesday of every month. With the February 16 release of the Star Wars collection, Disney Store will also kick off a new #TsumTsumTuesday release cadence with a new Disney, Marvel or Star Wars Tsum Tsum collection launching on both the first and third Tuesday of every month. The free puzzle app – LINE: Disney Tsum Tsum – which was first released in Japan in 2014 and quickly became the #1 free app on both iOS and Android, now boasts more than 50 million downloads worldwide.
My thoughts on Disney Star Wars Tsum Tsum Collection
First of all it goes without saying, being a Disney product, that the quality of each plush is exceptional. I received Luke Skywalker Tsum Tsum, Jabba the Hutt Tsum Tsum and R2-D2 Tsum Tsum and each one represented the character well (and was easily identifiable). I think they were instantly appealing by sight. I love how each one of them has a soft bit of fabric on them, and are squeezy (you can feel the beans inside them). The design of each one is quite simple but effective and I love the facial features. The Disney Star Wars Tsum Tsum is a great addition to this collectible range which appeals to a wide age range. I like how they are suitable to even let a child take them to bed.
I received 3 Disney Star Wars Tsum Tsum for purposes of review. No other financial compensation has been given.
