We were taking a stroll through Epcot’s World Showcase when we stumbled upon this cute little guy in Italy. Apparently Geppetto has switched from wood to yarn.
This new Pinocchio plush is made of a knitted yarn, similar to some plush we’ve already seen in the parks in the past (Oswald, Olaf, etc.) He feels nice and sturdy and looks pretty good, too.
This plush is specifically branded “Disney Classic Cozy Knits”, which we haven’t seen before.
On the other side of the tag, it also gives a little history on the character. It says “limited release”, but no indication is given as to how limited it is.
We found him in “Il Bel Cristallo” in Epcot’s Italy Pavilion. He’s marked as a Disney Parks exclusive and is $27.99.
Now all I think we need is a Jiminy Cricket plush to match! We’ll keep our eyes out to see if they release any more plush in this line.
