These stacking plush, available in 3 sizes (mini $4.95, medium $12.95 and large $24.95), come in a variety of characters in the U.S.  More than 1.5 million plush have been sold since the “Tsum Tsum” line debuted at Disney Stores in Japan about nine months ago. 

But, not all characters have made their way to the U.S.

The Japan line also carries a variety of mini characters not found here in the U.S.

Japan carries some pretty cool characters!

If you would like to order any of these Japan exclusive characters for your collection, please send us a message to  Our international shopping coordinator would love to help you.

" 'Disney Tsum Tsum’ has quickly become a phenomenon in Japan, and we are very excited about the Japan-originated franchise now going global. Disney Tsum Tsum is both a physical product and a digital game, allowing our guests to enjoy a multi-dimensional experience. We are hopeful that the Disney Tsum Tsum’ franchise will be loved and enjoyed by our guests around the world, said Paul Candland, president, the Walt Disney Co. Japan. ' ”

Speaking of the digital game, with over 4 million downloads, the new “Disney Tsum Tsum” app game can be downloaded through Apple’s App Store and Google Play. It works by connecting three or more characters to build points.  The more characters you can connect, the higher your score.  The higher your level, new Disney Tsum Tsum characters are released.

Disney Vera Bradley Mickey's Perfect Petals Pre-Order Details

We shared back in February a photo of a possible new pattern for the Disney by Vera Bradley collection.  Click here to read the post.  Yesterday, the Disney Parks Blog confirmed this new print called Mickey's Perfect Petals.  
Photos courtesy of Disney.

Along with the confirmation of the print, a special brunch event was announced for Sunday, May 4th at EPCOT's World Showcase.  This ticketed event will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and will feature the release of the brand new pattern along with a special appearance by Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, co-founder of Vera Bradley .  

This pattern will be available in some of the most popular styles.

Additionally, to the great disappointment of many Vera Bradley lovers, "there are no immediate plans to carry this color at Disneyland Resort or on the Disney Parks online store."

From the beginning of Shop The Magic, our focus has been to provide you access to items you would not normally be able to purchase, and this event is no different.  We will be attending the event!

We will have a limited number of bags available.  Our normal personal shopping fee of 20% will apply, but due to the high cost of the event ticket, each bag ordered will have a $10 non-refundable fee added to the cost to cover the ticket price. Payment is due by April 30th or your space will be given to the next interested person.

Space is on a first come first served basis. Please send us a message via our facebook page or to

We look forward to helping you be the first to own a piece of the Disney by Vera Bradley collection!
