Mickey Mouse might have started life in 2D but his iconic looks, cheeky character and comic capers quickly became an inspiration for everything from toys to fashion.
It’s this enduring appeal which Posh Paws is celebrating with the delicately designed new #Mickey90 plush collection – essential collectors’ items for any Mickey or indeed Disney fan, young or old.
Just like the original Mickey Mouse plush dolls designed and made by a young seamstress named Charlotte Clarke for Disney all the way back in 1930, Posh Paws have kept their designs true to the original Mickey and Minnie, with their colourful clothes and bright yellow shoes.
We love the way the Mickey and Minnie 10” soft toys come in a retro box; hinting at their long history as animated icons and making them a perfect gift for the dedicated fan. Far from being made to sit on a shelf, however, these are top quality plush characters that are super soft and lovable, just like their namesakes.
There’s also the Steamboat Willie Plush – celebrating Mickey’s first ever appearance on the silver screen in the 1928 animated short ‘Steamboat Willie’. This monochrome 10” plush comes in a retro gift box and is also available in 20” size, both true to the original mouse Walt Disney himself designed all those years ago.
The Posh Paws True Original Collection will be available to buy from a number of retailers including online on Amazon, Forbidden Planet and Debenhams.
