Merry Menagerie Plush Puppets Arrive at Discovery Trading Company
The magic of the Merry Menagerie at Disney’s Animal Kingdom provides a toned down way to enjoy the holiday season at the nature-centric theme park. Now, guests can also take home a piece of that wonder with two new plush puppets that dropped this week at Discovery Trading Company.
Each day, the Merry Menagerie puppets and their puppeteers add a sparkle of holiday magic as they greet guests around the Tree of Life. Primarily clad in snowy white, the cast members and puppets showcase arctic designs and icy shades of blue, aqua and purple to evoke a wintery feel.
Like the official entertainment puppets, the new plush puppets also play on these shades with matching designs to the real-life animals. The plush options celebrate two of the show’s most beloved figures: the penguin and the polar bear.
Clad mainly in white, the penguin has a design resembling bird’s feet in a silvery blue stitiching on both arms. We can’t get enough of his darling stuffed belly and his lilac-shaded face.
For the penguin’s interactive features, one uses a pocket in the back to reach inside of the penguin’s bright yellow beak. The same shade pops in tiny dots throughout the plush too.
At $29.99, the stuffed animal bursts with personality even without its new puppeteer giving it life.
Polar Bear Puppet Pops with Holiday Details
Like the animal that wanders the walkways of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the new polar bear plush bursts with intricate design details.
With a mainly white body, the polar bear’s cool blue undercoat surprises. The same color runs through mainy of the swirling details as well as on ombre eye accents on the bear’s darling face.
Gold also pops throughout the details of the polar bear’s fur. With a cross-stitch on his legs, the metallic shade also apppears often in details around the polar bear’s face, especially the geometric design across his forehead.
Also retailing for $29.99, the plush polar bear looks to be a great buddy for the penguin. Though, the pair are sold seperately. Both plush also showcase the Disney’s Animal Kingdom logo on a foot’s embroidery too.
We spotted an abundance of the dynamic duo during our stop into Discovery Trading Company recently. The popular retail location sits just over the bridge to the Tree of Life and always offers something unique to take home from a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
