REVIEW: Plunk Lion

Background

Anna Chambers might just be the queen of plush. Some of our favorite creations include her Mr. Corn, Doolie Box, Woodchucks, and Apple plushies. And she has returned with a new line, the Midnight Licorice Series.

The Midnight Licorice Series consists of a pair of limited edition plushies - Plunk Lion and Pop Lion. The two differ in their eyes and cheeks. For purposes of this review, we'll be looking at the Plunk Lion plush.

Our Opinion

The Plunk Lion plush has a fairly simple design. It features a large head with a pair of circular ears, two upward facing arms, and those floppy legs. It's stuffed rather firmly and the material used feels like a pair of my khaki work pants (it's actually black cotton canvas).

As far as stitching work, the eyes are embroidered in yellow. The other various facial elements (nose, mouth, cheeks and mane) are all sewn on using yellow, pink and green-blue threads. There are no problems with any of the stitching around the seams.

Of course, what stands out about the Plunk Lion plush is the contrast of colors on its face. It has an old-time feel, much like the series namesake – Midnight Licorice. The chosen colors look like the black licorice you'd find on the coffee table at your grandparent's house.

OVERALL: I really like the Plunk Lion plush more as a great art piece than a cuddly plush. It's fairly solid and the material is canvas. However, the vibrant colors on the black background really give us something not many other plushies have – outstanding artwork on a plush. I know I'm looking forward to seeing what else Anna has planned for the Midnight Licorice Series.
