Disclaimer: Disney/Pixar, Disney Channel and Disney XD sent me to Los Angeles on an all-expenses paid press trip, in exchange for my coverage of INSIDE OUT events, which included a complimentary gift bag of INSIDE OUT toys and products. All opinions are my own.
Half the fun of any new Disney animated movie – NEW TOYS! I’ll admit that I have my fair share of them too, as I’m a firm believer in the Peter Pan way of never growing up (at least in theory).
But there was one person who I had to share this information with first. One person who was itching for me to open my suitcase upon my return from Los Angeles. That person – oh, she’s 7 and about the biggest INSIDE OUT fan EVER! It’s like she could sense it. Or maybe her daddy had let her look at my Instagram pictures. Either way, she KNEW I had some of the hottest new toys out there. So hot in fact, that if you are interested in them, you better grab them now!
Maybe this was the picture she first saw. Teasing isn’t it? A themed gift bag overflowing with goodies, but you just can’t quite make out what’s in there. Oh, but I knew! And Disney didn’t disappoint.
In fact, you could tell that Disney Consumer Products has been quite busy planning and creating the perfect products just in time for the film’s release. And this gift bag – oh, I’m never giving it away! 🙂
Here’s what I found in my gift back:
- Inside Out Scented Pen
- Inside Out Anger Ball
- Inside Out Tote
And then the toys……..
She’s so vital to the film. She makes me laugh so much in the movie and you’ll find out why tomorrow (Friday is my movie review so be sure to stop by)!
I loved receiving this FunKo POP Disney/Pixar: Inside Out – Sadness Toy Figure and she now has a prominent place in my office. This was the one figure/doll I kept myself. The rest, well, I’ll let you guess who has them. This is my very first FunKo POP figure and I’m in love. They aren’t too big at all and so cute!
You’ll find FunKo POP has all Inside Out characters available including BING BONG!
Oh, you don’t know who Bing Bong is? Well, like I said….show up Friday! My movie review AND FYI….INSIDE OUT will be in theaters Friday, June 19th!
This is the toy that has me laughing here at home. Meet Deluxe Talking Disgust, who was quite the surprise! She speaks 11 phrases from the movie and we’ve been having a conversation with her everyday just to see what she’ll say after we talk to her! We giggle!
You press her hand to hear a phrase and at the same time she speaks, her face lights up! Whoa – I was not expecting that! Oh, and those eyelashes are so stiff and stick out – at first I thought they were part of her hairstyle. Too funny! She comes with a memory ball with which you can add a paper memory. She is a fun and fashionable addition to our toy room!
There are so many more Inside Out action figures and dolls, including a JOY plush which also says a few phrases!
I’m a HUGE reader and I’ve created a monster in my daughter. She goes through so many books a day. So this Inside Out Box of Mixed Emotions brought a big smile to her face! These adorable board books come packaged and are quite funny! Each of the 5 books is devoted to a separate emotion from the movie. Great for young children!
But there are books for every age – you’ll find a huge selection of INSIDE OUT books! From essential guidebooks to junior novels and from early reading books to coloring books and animation art books. There’s something for every fan.
We had some time carved out to meet with the great people at Disney Consumer Products……to thank them and to also see what else they had lined up. I was in awe! This is just a sampling………from iphone cases to clocks and pillows (and themed game of LIFE), I do believe they’ve thought of everything.
But there was one I spotted.
One which I predict will be one of the hottest toys of the summer, if not the year.
The playset includes 3 memory spheres, Joy figure, furniture pieces, Headquarters, and projector!
I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on this…..and don’t wait. I predict you won’t be able to find these for long.
I spotted this Sadness pillow, available at Target! I wanted to take her home with me….but sadly (get it?) I couldn’t.
But don’t you see the UGG shoes? YES! UGG has created a line specifically for INSIDE OUT with sweet embellishments, bold colors and emotional phrases!
The popular Tsum Tsum’s are hard to find but you can grab Inside Out Tsum Tsum‘s online at Amazon right now!
Clorox got a little creative when partnering up with Disney*Pixar.
They created the 5 Emotional Stages of Mess! So clever!
Anger – This instinctual first stage of mess often reveals itself through the use of colorful language, yelling, and gesticulating wildly.
Disgust – Once anger has subsided you enter the disgust phase, characterized by an increased sensitivity to the sight and smell of the mess.
Fear – After disgust has fully sunk in, you become irrationally afraid of the mess. You want to run, hide and wait until somehow it takes care of itself.
Sadness – Your fear then turns into sadness as you think about the possibility you’ve lost your fabrics, surfaces and other possessions to the mess.
Joy – The most important stage happens when you realize mess is just part of life well lived and the clean up can actually be pretty easy!
Pretzel Crisps is another brand partnering up with INSIDE OUT for a Capture Your Memories in Hawaii Sweepstakes!
And that’s just a quick highlight!
Remember, don’t wait to buy these later! I’m afraid many will be hard to find based on their popularity already. Check Amazon for many of the items now!
