Disney and I have a partnership going that is pretty lopsided! They put out collectible whatever and I buy it. They get my money, and I get… stuff. Case in point: Tsum Tsum stackable collectible figurines!
Nine in a Set
I’ve resisted branching out into the smaller plastic versions of this merchandise line after adding an assortment of the original plush versions to my collection. You can see those here. The link will take you to a Swedish Chef Tsum Tsum, but that post has a link to other plush Tsum Tsum characters as well.
The Backside of Tsum Tsum
And by ‘backside’ I mean their backsides! Don’t look at Snow White, it would be rude.
Now let’s free the little critters:
Who is the mystery character?
More on who the mystery character is later. In each of these sets, you get three large, three medium, and three small sizes of characters. My large characters are:
My medium characters are:
Hiro (Mystery Character)
I was pleasantly surprised to get Hiro, as Big Hero 6 is one of my favorite Disney movies!
I actually broke down and bought this set solely because of this Buzz Lightyear figure. Buzz as a tiny gerbil? Irresistible!
And finally, my small characters are:
Joy, Piglet, and Mickey Mouse
A secondary reason for buying this set was to obtain the Joy character for my wife.
These silly little things could definitely grow on me and I already realize that I will have to put up a strong fight against buying more! And how will I know what to look for?
Tsum Tsum Collector Guide
This little fold-out booklet comes with every set of Tsum Tsum stackable figures. What I purchased is part of the Series 2 collection:
40 Characters in all!
Now keep in mind that if you want the complete series, you will have to collect 120 individual pieces, as each character comes in all three sizes of small, medium, and large. Depending on how Disney has apportioned the characters throughout the packs, you will have to buy at least 13 packs at $19.97 each. Round that up to an even $20.00 and those 13 packs are going to cost you $260.00 CAN.
Now I’m sure I’ve seen duplicates of characters in multiple packs, which means you will have to buy more packs and you will end up with duplicate characters. So I advise trading with friends!
So will you zoom zoom to the store to buy these Tsum Tsum figures?
