My daughter is a big fan of Marie from the Aristocats. She likes the film but LOVES Marie! Aristocats is an 1970 Disney film which revolves around a mother cat (Duchess) and her kittens (Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz) who are trying to find their way home after being catnapped. Marie looks much like her mother, but a cuter version, I think this is why my daughter prefers her, plus Marie is the only girl kitten. Whilst browsing The Disney Store last year we came across a little Marie toy that we simply had to have! It's a 'Disney Store Exclusive' which means you can only buy it from The Disney Store, although it doesn't have a badge or patch sewn on it like the bigger toys do (just a regular white Disney tag). Marie looks very cute and is totally recognisable. Aristocats/Marie fans are sure to love her, my daughter sure does! She is all white, with a pink collar (with bow on top), pink bow on top of her head and is in a sitting position. She has tufts of white hair on top of her head and on her tail. She also has little pink ears, cute pink nose, beautiful blue eyes and a little mouth stitched on to her face. She is described as 'mini' on the website and she is quite small, but not TOO small (about right for the price). She measures at 17cm tall and 14cm long, so the perfect size for taking out and about and a good size for keeping in buggies and car seats, plus it doesn't take up much room in bags etc. My daughter often takes hers to bed and she takes up no room at all. She's also very lightweight and is effortless for little ones to carry about. Marie is super soft on the outside and very squishy inside - perfect for cuddling up to! She is also described on the website as a 'bean bag' although you can only feel the bean bag in her bottom. The bean bag doesn't effect how soft and squishy the toy is and helps to weigh her bottom down which allows the toy to sit up independently, which is nice. The toy is suitable for children 12+ months and can be hand washed. You can buy the Marie Mini Bean Bag toy from The Disney Store for £7.00. There are also larger versions of the same toy available. My daughter has had this particular toy for 8 months or so. She has lots of soft toys but this one is among her favourites. It's very cute and pretty, as well as soft and cuddly. I also think it's good value for money and is the perfect size for taking out and about. The only downsides are that I find it gets quite grubby rather easily because of the white colour (easily sorted by a warm hand wash though) and my daughter managed to pull the bow off Marie's collar. I have since sewn it back on and it's been fine. Overall, a nice soft toy from The Disney Store.
