obsessed.: FunKo toys

I don't know if you know this about me, but I like things that are cute. Things like kittens. Baby platypuses. And Peeta Mellark Mrs. Mollie Weasley.

And when cute combines with nerdy, it's pretty much a given that I'll soon be obsessed. (I've long wanted a complete collection of the Disney Pook-a-Looz and even made a Doctor Who version for a craft swap.) My current obsession that falls into the cuterdy category? FunKo POP! vinyl figurines and Plushies.

I first ran across these items when I was waiting in line at Barnes and Noble before Christmas. A display of the POP! figurines caught my eye, and I grabbed the Green Lantern for a "stocking stuffer" for Colt. He then received the Captain America Plushie from friends ... and the hunt for more began.

I found a Green Lantern Plushie and a Captain America POP! at Target.

And Colt then bought me Princess Leia.

When I went online to search for a Han—terrible idea alert—I found that the POP! and Plushie lines don't stop with superheroes and Star Wars—they have Disney figurines, too!

Of course, I quickly added a few needed ones to my Amazon wishlist, including:





Belle and the Beast*

A-dorable, right? Now to figure out where to put them ...

*Did you know that Beast's name is actually Adam? I learned that recently and was blown away. I'd always called him Edward in my head.


  1. !!! MANDY!!! I should have NEVER read this post. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! I for sure need Chewie!!! Oh my gosh!!! I LOVE little figurines, action figures, dolls and other knick knacks that represent me (gamer, geek, artist, Wicca, goth-y girl, cowgirl - etc., etc!) and these are just SO CUTE!!!

    I'm a HUGE fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Jen and I adore the mini pony figurines. Jen has nearly all of them and I'm building my collection slowly! On top of that, Plushiluv is a girl who creates the most AMAZING and GIGANTIC MLP:FiM plushies!!!

    Okay... I'm done.

    1. Haha. I'm glad I could spread the love. :)

  2. We love Pop Vinyls! The Wondermutt ATE our Minnie Mouse in one of his jealous-why-are-people-here-and-not-paying-attention-to-me rages! >:( They actually sell the Disney ones at the Disney store. <3

    1. Of course! I'd totally spaced that y'all had them too. Silly me.

      Glad to know they have them at the Disney store!

  3. These are soooooo cute!! Love them!

  4. Ohmygoodness!! How freaking adorable! I think A and l need some, um yeah, that's right, um, the *kids* need them. ;)
