REVIEW: Lubies Turkey

lubies turkey 2

Background

The folks from Rocket USA began releasing a few limited run Lubies based on various seasonal holidays. When you think about the fall, it usually conjures up images of football, leaves…and turkey. So, for the Thanksgiving holiday, the newest animal to join Lubieland is the Turkey.

Did you know? The color of the head of a male turkey can change between red, blue and white, sometimes changing in a few seconds.

Our Opinion

I always look for a good reason to display toys outside of the wife appointed bounds of the man cave. While you can usually get away with the Christmas inspired figures, it makes perfect sense to include the Turkey Lubie as a part of your Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Turkeys aren’t the most attractive animals to grace the face of the earth. But Rocket USA did a pretty good job of stylizing them to be cute enough for the kids, while still being recognizable. (Although, I’d still opt for some of the other Lubies for the kids)

The quality of the plush is similar to the previously released Lubies, which means that it’s well produced and super soft. So, do we recommend picking one up? Definitely! While it’s not the best representative of the Lubies line, it’s a plush that cannot only be display among your collectibles…but it can make a yearly appearance during your Thanksgiving Day feast.

You can pick one up at the following:
