We love Disney and we also love Star Wars so are very excited to see that Disney Store UK will be introducing a Star Wars Tsum Tsum collection.
On the 2nd Feb 16 Disney Store UK unveiled characters from a galaxy far, far away as a part of the Star Wars Tsum Tsum collection. The newest addition to the popular stackable plush line that has taken the world by storm since it was first introduced at Disney Store in Japan in 2013.
The Star Wars Tsum Tsum collection will feature characters from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and will come in three sizes – mini, medium and large. Characters represented in the collection include: Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Han Solo, R2-D2, Jabba the Hutt, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Yoda, C-3P0, Ewok and Stormtrooper. The collection will be launched exclusively at Disney Store locations – both in-store and online – in the UK and across Europe, as well as the U.S. and Japan on February 16.
Since its debut in 2013, Disney Tsum Tsum has quickly become one of the most successful plush lines in Disney Store history, prompting category expansion into softlines, accessories, home décor and more. Featuring classic and new Disney, Marvel and now Star Wars characters, Disney Tsum Tsum’s whimsical design reinterprets everyone’s favourite characters with a unique Japanese aesthetic.
We've been sent Boba Fett, Darth Vader and R2-D2, which we love! Super soft, stackable and super cute they are a hit and nicely start our collection!
Similar to the classic Disney and Marvel Tsum Tsum characters currently available, this first collection will serve as the evergreen Star Wars assortment that will live on as future assortments are introduced.
To capitalise on a growing fan base and the product’s collectible nature, Disney Store launched #TsumTsumTuesdays where a new collection of the adorable plush is unveiled the first Tuesday of every month. With the February 16 release of the Star Wars collection, Disney Store will also kick off a new #TsumTsumTuesday release cadence with a new Disney, Marvel or Star Wars Tsum Tsum collection launching on both the first and third Tuesday of every month.
The free puzzle app – LINE: Disney Tsum Tsum – which was first released in Japan in 2014 and quickly became the #1 free app on both iOS and Android, now boasts more than 50 million downloads worldwide. I shall be taking a look myself.
I'm looking forward to getting more of these plush little characters and starting to build on our Tsum Tsum collection!
Princess Leia and Chewbacca will be high on the list of must haves. The ones we have are just £3 each, so ideal pocket money collectibles and perfect as an alternative to Easter Eggs this coming Easter.
