Weighted blankets have become very popular tools for reducing anxiety and aiding sleep.
Disney put their own spin on this product with weighted plushes, which we found in the parks (and online) last year. They’ve been missing from Disney World’s gift shops for a while now, but we have great news if you were hoping to grab one of these heavy plushes!
Weighted plushes are back in stock in Disney World! We spotted two characters in the parks today, including one that’s NEW to Disney World (although we’ve seen them both in Disneyland).
Now you can get a weighted Pluto stuffed animal (we’ve seen this cutie before)…
…and the NEW weighted Pua! (He’s the adorable pig from Moana, in case you didn’t already know.)
These animals have a removable 2.5 pound bag inside them, so you can take it out if they get too heavy for ya.
Our reporters have said that the plushes feel very heavy with the bag inside, possibly even heavier than 2.5 pounds.
Both of these plushes cost $39.99, and they’re available to buy online as well.
In the past, we’ve also seen weighted plushes for Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Stitch, Winnie the Pooh, and Eeyore, but Pluto and Pua were the only characters available today. We asked a Cast Member about these guys, and they told us that more characters were supposed to come with Pluto and Pua, but they were delayed.
The other characters are now scheduled to arrive sometime in April according to this Cast Member, but they could arrive earlier or later (there’s some uncertainty with shipping right now). All of the weighted plush characters (Mickey, Minnie, Stitch, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Pluto, and Pua) are available to buy online at shopDisney right now!
