REVIEW: Doolie Box – TooBaa and TeeHee
Anna Chambers’ Doolie Box line consists of three mischievous, dancing creatures that love music. The first two soft, stackable plush blocks that have been released are named TooBaa (purple) and TeeHee (blue). The third plush, named BooHoo (green), is scheduled to be released later this year.
Each Doolie Box comes individually bagged. Although, they won’t be in it long, since all the plastic bag does is protect it from dirt…and the outside world. The plushies do have tags that feature drawings of the Doolie Box characters, and can double a drink coaster.
The first two Doolie Box plushies are named TooBaa (purple) and TeeHee (blue). They each measure approximately 9” wide by 7” tall by 4” deep. The stackable and huggable blocks are made of soft fleece and terry cloth.
The Doolie Boxes have arms, feet and antennae. There are 8 different swatches of material exploding from the characters’ faces. There is also a patch of the same material on the Doolie’s behind.
Each plush is limited to a run of 500 pieces.
When I initially saw a photo of the first Doolie Box, TooBaa, it brought back memories of Magic Screen from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Comparing the characters now, they don’t look anything alike. But the Doolie Box plushies do look a little bit like a television screen.
So, I was a little skeptical when I read that these were stackable. Really? Stackable plush? But plush are also so…unpredictable. Well these actually are stackable, as you can see. Will it work with 3 Doolie Boxes? Now that is a good question.
One thing I do know…it’s going to be a tough year to decide our award for the best plush. You can add these stackable plush blocks to that long list of great plushies released in 2008.
Both TooBaa and TeeHee are bound to be favorites of kids and adults alike. They’re soft, well constructed, can be used as a pillow and are cute. Don’t they just look like they’re waiting for a hug?
