REVIEW: Rick and Morty Plushies

rick-morty-plush-01

The Rick and Morty review train continues to roll with a line of plush figures released by the folks at J!NX. Featuring most of the main characters from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim show, the series of 7 to 11 inches tall plushies allow you to cuddle with Rick or Morty or even Mr. Poopybutthole.

J!NX was nice enough to send us a number of those plush toys as well as a nice Meeseeks reversible beanie (great for making your kids think you’ve completely lost it) that switches from a happy and angry face on it.

The show has two seasons in the bag, with Season 3 slated to debut in March 2017. The characters from the show that are available in J!NX’s plush line include: the often inebriated mad scientist Rick; his grandson Morty; Morty’s oft goofed-upon father Jerry; Morty’s older sister Summer; the creature who lives to serve one purpose, and then die – Meeseeks (in Happy, Sad, and Caddy versions); and a longtime friend of the Smith family – Mr. Poopybutthole.

Each plush is made of velboa fabric. I actually had to look up that fabric, since I had never heard of it. It’s described as “low pile, faux fur fabric”. In other words, it’s pretty soft. And it’s probably what that faux cheetah skin throw rug you have in front of your fireplace is made out of.

As far as the likenesses, they all resemble their onscreen counterparts. Personally, I like Meeseeks and Rick the most since they are my favorite animated (and therefore plush) characters. As with most plush toys, J!NX went with mitten hands for this line. There’s nothing wrong with that. And there are some vinyl elements, such as on Jerry’s shirt and the Caddy Meeseeks bib.

Overall, I really enjoy this line. With the collectible pickings slim for Rick and Morty fans (although they are picking up), a quality plush line is always welcome. And at $14.99 for each plush (most of them measure in around 10 inches tall), it won’t break that bank to pick up a few of your favorites.

Furry Feline Creatives has announced the NEW Pooplets Plush. (I'm assuming these are feline pooplets) The Pooplets plush, a set of 2, includes the classic brown and the golden poop (rub it for good luck). Each one measures at 5 inches in length by 5.5 inches in height. You can pick up the set for $29.99.

And there's also this...

Five years of Furry Feline Creatives and we continue to challenge ourselves with original art, characters, stories, ideas and concepts. As you may already know, we started making handmade plush that brought the characters into the spotlight. We have since then blossomed into a lifestyle brand through the years having a wide variety of merchandise such as apparel, designer bags, pins, prints, glassware, books and other novelties that caters to people of all ages.

We have been outpaced by our handmade plush selling faster than we can make them, so we have begun outsourcing them. As we begin this transition, all of the handmade plush will be very limited and will be available via "Made to Order" and will increase in pricing. This month is the last chance to score discounted pricing of our current handmade plush.

REVIEW: Kawaii Cubes – DC Comics

Kawaii-Cubes-00

I’ll try to set the scene for you. I had taken off a week from work to hang out (care for) with my two sons (6 and 4 years old) during summer vacation. A FedEx box shows up on our doorstep. My kids’ first inclination is to ask if these are toys. In this case, they are. I open up the box and their eyes nearly pop out of their collective heads.

To say that the Wish Factory Kawaii Cubes were a hit with my little ones might be an understatement. They had begun divvying up the characters before the little plush squares had the chance to breath. And with licenses such as DC Comics and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there are plenty of well-known characters to choose from.

Kawaii-Cubes-22

For purposes of this review, I received Kawaii Cubes from the above-mentioned pair of licenses. But they have plenty of other licenses, including Star Trek and a number of classic Warner Bros. characters (Flintstones, Scooby Doo, Wizard of Oz).

So, if you were perplexed by the name of the plush line, Kawaii is Japanese for cute. Basically, they’re cute, little plush cubes. Just like the name says. Each character fits into the same platform.

Kawaii-Cubes-13

The bottoms are weighted with pellets to give each plush a little extra substance. This allows you to stack them (as you can see in the first photo) or peg your brother with them (which I quickly found out is possible).

Each character is done in a minimalistic Japanese anime style (smile, eyes, nose, rosy cheeks). I feel it works on a plush toy of this scale. You want something that’s small, recognizable, and fun…and I feel Wish Factory checked all three of those boxes.

Kawaii-Cubes-14

And with the tagline “Collect and Stack!”, it’s nice to see that the company is addressing the obsessive collectors and displayers out there. Although, if you have kids…your neatly stacked Kawaii Cube pyramid will likely end up crashing down.
