I am Groot! (Translation: Happy Holidays!) It’s time to fall in love all over again with everyone’s favorite adorable sentient tree creature, Groot. This time, he’s all decked out for the holidays with a Santa hat. With the regular shoulder Groot plush being one of the top-sold items at Disneyland Resort, we’re happy this guest favorite has arrived at Walt Disney World with some added Christmas flare.

Christmas Shoulder Groot Plush – $19.99

Having this little Groot pal sit on your shoulder will ”arbor” good feelings and good tidings for the holiday season.

Groot comes with a tiny magnetic fabric disk that goes under your shirt, so he can sit in place.

Find someone who gazes lovingly at you like Groot does.

This is essentially the same Groot shoulder plush that’s been sold for a while now, just with a tiny Santa hat. Groot has tiny felt leaves and an expressive embroidered face. Across his body, there are some surface tree bark designs that are screen-printed on.

I’m dreaming… of a Groot… Christmas…

The tag points to the plush’s origins at Disney California Adventure as part of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! attraction. (Now, if only they’d do a Christmas overlay a-la Monsters After Dark…)

You can adopt your very own Christmas-ready Groot for $19.99 at World of Disney in Disney Springs.
