Disney Special Agent Oso Plush Toy
Advantages: very soft, exactly like the character
Disadvantages: almost impossible to get hold of!
One of my little girls favourite new characters is Special Agent Oso, and in the run up to her birthday she decided that she wanted an Oso theme and toys which was a bit of a nightmare for me as I had almost finished my shopping and had gone with a Mickey Mouse theme as that was all she wanted to watch!
For those that are unaware of who Special Agent Oso is I will explain. Special Agent Oso is a reasonably new series on the Playhouse Disney channel and features a bright colourful bear, Oso, who is training to be a special agent. While progressing through his own training, Oso is called upon by his boss Mr Dos to complete a special assignment in which he will need to help a child complete a menial task such as blowing bubbles, making a birthday card, taking a photograph and many many more. Oso has a computerised assistant called Paw Pilot who is attached to his jacket and he can call upon her at all times, and she gives him his three special steps to complete each assignment. Oso is voiced by Sean Astin (probably best known as Mikey from the Goonies, or Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings trilogy).
I kept checking on the Disney website as it was announced that there would be a range of Special Agent Oso toys released before Christmas but there was no date supplied and time was getting on. I checked on Ebay and saw that there was an Oso plush on sale but they were selling at prices well over £30 which I thought was way too much to pay just for a teddy, but at the same time I didn't want to disappoint my daughter as it was something that she was continually asking for. One afternoon my mum asked me to take her to the Trafford Centre as she needed to pick something up from the Disney Store, and as we were queuing up to pay, one of the store assistants was just placing two Oso teddies on the shelf! I quickly ran over to grab one before they got snapped up and the assistant advised me to buy them both as there was money to be made, sadly I hadn't taken my purse!
The Oso teddy is incredibly soft to the touch, and feels almost like velour so it is ideal for snuggling up to! As soon as I felt how soft the teddy is I thought it would be a perfect bedtime teddy for my daughter. The design of Oso is just as he appears on the tv show - he is bright yellow with a big white tummy and he is wearing his usual green gloves. His paw prints on his feet, the rim of his ears and around his eyes are the same shade of green also. Oso is wearing his special agent jacket and this is where Paw Pilot is attached on the right hand side. He is also wearing his special watch through which his boss contacts him with his new assignments.
The face of the teddy is cute and smiley, again just as he appears in the show and his mouth is open slightly so you can just see a couple of his teeth which look dead cute! I think the teddy has been extremely well made, as you would expect from the Disney Store, he appears to be long lasting.
I am slightly disappointed with one aspect of this teddy, and that is where the Paw Pilot badge is as it simply shows a paw print on there which it does on the show but I think the teddy would have been improved if Paw Pilot had been shown as my daughter doesn't seem to understand why she won't appear! That said I am really happy I was able to pick up this teddy for my little girl as she does love it to bits. I was surprised that she didn't want to use it as a bedtime teddy but she likes to play with him downstairs with some of her other Oso toys.
I was lucky enough to pick up Special Agent Oso for £20.00 (if I remember rightly) but they are now being sold on Ebay and Amazon for the ridiculous prices of £40 all the way up to £80!!! If you wish to purchase one of these teddies for your little one I would suggest to keep trying the Disney Store as they apparently do get a few in every couple of months.
I would recommend the Oso teddy, as it is a lovely and really well made bear that is so cuddly and a must for any little Oso fan!
Thank you for reading my review :)
