“ Manufacturer: Disney / Type: Soft Toy „
Hello, I was wondering if somebody could help - I want to order this Bday Minnie Mouse but am unable to as the link appears to be broken? I would really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance for your time!Please email me at: email@example.com
My best friends birthday is coming up soon and usually we spend quite a lot on each other, but since I have been at university, money has been quite tight, therefore I decided to buy just the one present this year and find something special rather than purchase lots of little things as I felt this was a little more meaningful. She is a huge fan of Disney, therefore I initially started by flicking through the store website when I came across this Minnie Mouse Personalised Messenger soft toy which I thought was just perfect.
This completely stood out to me at first just because of how lovely and unique this would be as a gift, but I have to say that the price completely agreed with me too. I often find that the Disney store can be a little overpriced, but this is because they can be as you know you are purchasing the real deal and it will be genuinely branded. I was surprised to see that this lovely teddy was only £15.00 which I would say is quite reasonable to buy direct from Disney. This £15.00 did also include the personalisation as you can choose an individual piece of writing to be put on to this, and I felt it was great that this was included in the price. There is a big Disney store not far from where I live and they did not have this in store, so it may be online only due to the personalisation and this does unfortunately mean there are delivery costs and I ended up paying around £20.00 in total as delivery was edging on £5.00 which is fairly extortionate for just standard delivery. However, this was received in the post fairly quickly so it is not too much of an issue to me.
As you can see this is a Minnie Mouse soft toy, and this is how I best remember Minnie Mouse when I was growing up. This soft toy shows her sporting her famous red and white polka dot dress, along with the matching bow which is put in her hair. She is also wearing yellow heels which is fairly cute. Many other variations have been brought out over the years with Minnie wearing a whole range of outfits but this is her original which I like. My friend is a huge fan of Minnie Mouse and all things Disney, so I felt that a Minnie teddy would be perfect for her, but the personalisation element just adds to the gift.
As you can see in the image, Minnie is holding on to an envelope, and this is where you are able to add your own little message on to it. In the corner of the envelope there is a little stamp of Mickey which I think is cute and adds to the detailed effects. I think this makes it quite a special and thoughtful gift with someone, so I opted to write 'Happy Birthday' and then my friends name on it. I did have some trouble at first as it did not accept what I had wrote so perhaps certain punctuation such as exclamation marks are not accepted. Try to keep your message quite sweet and short as there is a limit on the amount you can fit on there. This limit is forty characters and that does include spaces so make sure you plan out what you can fit in the envelope. Just in case you are interested, the way in which your specific text is added is through the use of a flocked vinyl heat transfer. Due to this personalisation element it makes it perfect for birthdays, anniversary's, get well soon gifts or even just to let someone know that you love them. Although most likely being targeted towards children, I think that this is still a great present for adults alike - especially those who are still young at heart like my friend.
I was extremely excited when I received this so I could wrap it all up lovely for her. Minnie came in pristine condition, along with the Disney tags to show that it is real. She is a 15 inch teddy, and is 33 centimetres length ways and 19 centimetres width, therefore making her a great size, as it is not a really small soft toy, but just right to put on your bed or display in a room somewhere, and I think this is a really good value for money gift. The teddy is very soft to touch and all of the details on her are wonderful. The teddy is 100% polyester so you can guarantee it will be long lasting, and the base of Minnie is bean bag, meaning she sits nice and comfortably. The envelope came with the message I chose and it was all written out correctly and looked fantastic - I now can not wait to give it to my friend! Also, when I ordered mine in January, I also received a free Disney Princess 2012 calendar to put on my wall, so you get a little extra freebie if you order early on in the year which is always nice!
There is only really one issue that I have found with the Minnie Mouse soft toy, and this is regarding the envelope which she is holding. The font looked fabulous, the writing was clear and my message was all correct, however I just had a teeny issue with the envelope itself. It is actually quite flimsy, and although being made of fabric does not really stand too well. With a bit of rough and tumble this could easily snag from the hands of Minnie and quite possibly be a sewing job. I was slightly disappointed with this, but it is really the only bad thing I would have to say about this.
Overall, I really can only praise this lovely little gift and I really have my fingers crossed that my friend will love this just as much as I do. Not only is it an exclusive Disney store products, and not only is it one of Disney's most loved characters, but you get to make it special and personal to the receiver of the gift which adds a whole dimension to buying somebody something. You can guarantee that this soft toy is of a high quality and would be perfect for people of all ages regardless of how young or young at heart you are! A well-priced, gorgeous teddy from Disney which I would recommend to all to buy as a gift for their loved ones! Thanks for reading.
