REVIEW: Disney Xmas Cosbaby Set
Since it’s the beginning of December, it’s time to start the Christmas decorating. The folks at Hot Toys have got you covered. They just released their Disney Friends Christmas Cosbaby Twin Pack, featuring the likes of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck dressed up in their favorite Xmas attire.

With the holiday season upon us, you’re probably looking for some gift ideas. Maybe a stocking stuffer? Well, Hot Toys might just have you covered. If you’re shopping for a Disney fan, the Disney Friends Christmas Cosbaby set is a perfect choice. You get two Cosbaby figures, plus a mini Christmas card, for under $20.
I’ve written this before, but I am always looking for a reason to be allowed to display toys outside of the inner sanctum of the man room. And there are a few holidays where one could get away with that (usually Halloween and Christmas). These Cosbaby figures could definitely be set on the mantle next to your other Christmas knickknacks.
Hot Toys has chosen classic looks for both Donald and Mickey. If you look at the eyes, you can see that they’re the Pac-Man shaped style. Mickey is dressed in his Santa robe and hat, while Donald is sporting his favorite Xmas scarf. They both have uniquely sculpted heads, while Donald has webbed feet and Mickey has a tail.
The quality of these figures is the same as most other Cosbaby toys (read: slightly above average mini figures). They have a little more sculpting work than your normal block figure. The only issue I noticed was that the arms (especially on Mickey Mouse) appear to be a little long for the body.
Overall, this set is perfect to add to your holiday decorations. But would it make a good addition to your toy collection? That’s up to you. Mickey and Donald are two of Disney’s most famous characters, so if you’re a Disney fan…these will appeal to you. But they definitely have a seasonal appearance to them, so they might get packed up along with the tree ornaments.
