REVIEW: The Last Mimzy Plush
Here’s part of The Last Mimzy synopsis from RottenTomatoes.com: Two kids find a bizarre box on the beach and are soon exhibiting signs of off-the-chart genius in this gently mind-blowing fantasy film. Little Emma (Rhiannon Leigh Wryn) finds a cute bunny doll in the box, who talks to her in electronic code.
That little bunny doll is named Mimzy. Very fittingly, Tonner Doll Company acquired the license to produce authorized replicas of the plush bunny. Mimzy was one of the hot toys for this past Christmas, albeit tough to find. But Tonner now has the Plush Mimzy back in stock and ready to rocket into your living room.
The Plush Mimzy is packaged within a black rectangular box that has the logo of the film on the front. The piece is packaged with tissue paper and secured with a ribbon.
The Last Mimzy Plush stands approximately 14” tall (from the tip of the ears to the feet). While there is a Collector Mimzy made of a less “cuddly” material, the Plush Mimzy is made of soft chenille. So it is perfect for collectors as well as youngsters.
However, you’ll have to make sure that you’re aware that this plush is actually constructed in six different pieces (head, body, arms and legs). Little plastic joints inside of Mimzy attach all of the body parts together. This allows the pieces to turn 360 degrees, but also means kids might rip off an arm if they’re too rough. The plush also has wire inserts in the ears, so they are poseable.
Our initial post about Tonner’s release of The Last Mimzy plush ended up getting some of the most comments on our lil’ site. Collectors, kids and grandmas all wanted to know where they could pick one up. Well, Tonner now has a bunch of the plush Mimzy’s available.
So, what do we think about Mimzy? Well, it’s not often that a plush toy is one of the main characters of a film. And when they are, it’s usually because they’re possessed and on a murderous rampage. But this film character is family friendly, and rather cuddly.
While the Collector Mimzy is a better replica of the actual plush from the film, the Plush Mimzy is perfect for kids who want a soft, cuddly Mimzy of their own. I must warn you that my Mimzy did not send me any subliminal messages…but my neighbor’s dog started talking to me.
