Half of the fun of a movie is being able to experience it at home long after you leave the theater. No one makes that happen better than Disney! “Inside Out” is not going to be left behind as they are already offering a great array of amazing gear, games and goodies featuring characters and stories from the movie and I got to take a sneak peak at all these goodies – as well as visit the Disney store on the Disney lot and bring a few home! Now, I get to share them with you so you can do a little pre-shopping before heading out to the Disney store or Target near you. Or better yet, shop on Amazon online, use your Prime and have it all delivered right to your door. I admit I can’t possibly share with you all the goodies, gear and games available, but I can feature some of my favorites for you.
Inside Out Shoes by Ugg
I know as soon as I got in the car and answered all their questions about Phineas and Ferb, the girls next wanted to know, “What did you bring us?! We saw the stuff! Did we get the shoes?” (Note to self, don’t let kids see your Instagram feed while on a business trip.) “What shoes?” MOM!!
THESE SHOES! The emotions of Inside Out come to life with bold colors and sweet embellishments that celebrate a rainbow of emotions on boots, slip-ons and sneakers. This is just a sample of three of the shoes to be created in partnership with UGG. There are six different styles and colors to choose from, but don’t get too attached to them as I did find out that these adorable shoes (I want the slip on glitter blue canvas) are only available up to size 7 1/2.
My daughter was able to meet Joy, as I admit I brought her home the figurine. There is just something about this character that calls to mind my middle daughter, and apparently she agrees because she carries it everywhere now, including her performance camp. Joy even came to the 3D screening with us and apparently her favorite candy is Skittles – which I think in some small way may be a good fit. You can find your favorite character too, sure you can say it’s for the kids but I know you want to put an “Anger” on your desk at work.
Sure you can call them coffee table books, but there are an array of books available featuring the characters from “Inside Out. My daughters LOVED the Inside Out Box of Mixed Emotions and quickly read through each one of them. But what they found most interesting was the peak a boo circle in the middle of the box, where each day they can show what their emotion of the day is as the image from the book is featured in the box. Simply take them out and rearrange and then everyone knows what sort of emotion you are feeling that day.
The Inside Out Soundtrack was played the very next morning after I got home and now I actually need two of them because they want one in the car and one in the house. Why you ask? Get this — it makes it more fun to do chores! WHAT? Seriously, they can play this soundtrack every day if it gets them to do their chores quickly! I can’t think of a better reason to own this.
My oldest daughter is fascinated by all things red right now, even her hair. So, I couldn’t help myself, she was the proud owner of the Deluxe Talking Anger Figure! She also got the Anger t-shirt, which she’s worn three times (yes she washed it) and I’ve only been home about a week. So, I think she likes it. I admit, it’s actually a little hard to stay angry when you push the button and he talks to you! I think that’s one of my favorite things about these toys, is both these and the plush dolls of the Inside Out characters also talk to you. My youngest sleeps with her talking plush Sadness doll every night, which says one of 5 phrases from the movie.
I think of the many items of toy, clothing and gear that we say the ones I’m most excited about are these three! We just redecorated one daughter’s room and hung Japanese lanterns and as soon as I saw the Inside Out bedding set and comforter I knew that it would make a great addition to her bedroom.
Family game night is a big deal in our household, and I think it’s going to get even more popular with these two new games from the movie! What better match up than Life: Inside Out Board Game and the emotions that Riley was experiencing with the loss of her home, friends and everything that was familiar to her?
And last but not least, Disney INFINITY Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition: DisneyPixar’s Inside Out Play Set ! Yes, you can bring the Inside Out characters to life in your Disney Infinity game – but there’s more on that later. But I just couldnt’ keep it to myself!
Whatever your favorite character there is plenty of games, gear and goodies for you and your whole family to enjoy. These are just a sample, but I leave you with even more samples to look at and choose from! Take a look at just a few more of the items now available from the movie “Inside Out.”
