A Look at a few aweTSUM Easter Basket Fillers
featuring Pastel Parade Vinyl Tsum Tsums from Jakks Pacific
Here in Southern California, the weather has started to turn toward Spring (hoping it has for other parts of the world too) so there’s no better time to start thinking about Easter! For all of you Tsum Tsum lovers, retailers have not disappointed with an array of Tsum Tsum merchandise to fill both baskets and plastic eggs for your egg hunts this year!
Jakks Pacific has released it’s Pastel Parade as part of Series 5 of their vinyl Tsum Tsum collection. These special series feature characters that have been previously released, but in a pastel or muted version of previous releases.
The three-packs are made up of three characters (one of each size – small, medium, and large) from the same film – “Peter Pan,” “Bambi,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Winnie-the Pooh” and two sets featuring Mickey and Friends. The mystery packs are all large size vinyls and include Bambi, Eeyore, Mickey Mouse, Angel, Jiminy Cricket, Ariel, Miss Bunny, Chip, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, Piglet, and a Golden Pooh (this is the super rare one of the bunch). The mystery packs have been spotted mostly at Target stores for $2.99 each while the 3-packs have been seen at both Target and Toys-R-Us for $4.99 each.
If you don’t want to go hunting through Mystery Packs, Walgreen’s has a set of six large Pastel Parade characters (some not included in the Mystery Packs), packaged like Easter Candy. The set includes Mickey, Minnie, Thumper, Miss Bunny, Pooh, and Piglet. This set can be purchased for $14.99 at your local Walgreen’s store.
Rounding out the Pastel Parade vinyls from Jakks Pacific is the Target exclusive set of six Pastel Parade characters all ready for Easter – and they’re covered in glitter! The set includes medium vinyls of Tinkerbell, Donald, Pooh, Queen of Hearts, Thumper, Ariel, The set is available only at Target for $9.99.
Though watches aren’t as popular as they once were thanks to our smartphones, I don’t doubt that the selection of Tsum Tsum watches this spring will bring them right back in Style. The first set of watches are available at Wal-Mart, both for $6.88 each. The smaller face watch includes the choice of light up flashing charms (either Stitch/Mikey or Cheshire Cat/Pooh)!
These two watches are available at Target for $9.99 (though I had trouble finding them…they must be very popular!). Be sure to check in the girls accessories section – with the bows, headbands, etc. My personal favorite is the Start Wars Tsum Tsum watch with Princess Leia on the face while the digital watch includes three slide-on charms to choose from – Marie, Dumbo, and Minnie).
If jewelry is your thing, Wal-Mart has this cute charm necklace that includes a small Ariel, Olaf and Mickey inside of a round pink pendant. You can find these in the jewelry section for $6.88.
LipSmacker has released a new series of stackable flavored lip balms just for Easter. This series includes Thumper, Dale, Eeyore, and Dale. I found this Thumper at Target in the Easter section for $4.99.
Bullseye’s Playground (formerly known as “The Dollar Spot”) at Target always has lots of fun finds and they’ve been stocking more and more Tsum Tsum products including all those pictured in the two photos below.

Toys R Us and Walmart also have several Tsum Tsum items to fill those Easter baskets.
At Toys R Us, I found some small goodies in their Under $5 section, including a notepad and pen for $1, a locking diary an pen with a fuzzy topper for $2, and a stamper set with 4 shaped stamps and stamp pad for $2.
Wal-Mart is carrying large Easter eggs filled with 40 Tsum Tsum temporary tattoos and a series of 24 Tsum Tsum charm bracelets. The tattoo-filled eggs are $1.98 and some of the tattoo designs include Elsa, Perry, and Aladdin.
The charms on the wristbands are interchangeable and you can add multiple charms to one wristband too. The wristbands are $2.98 for a set of two and come in the following pairs:
Pluto on yellow/Goofy on dark blue
Olaf on white/Mickey on glitter light blue
Peter Pan on lime green/Tinkerbell on pink
Elsa on glitter purple/Minnie on pink
Mickey on glitter light blue/Minnie on pink
Mike on lime green/Sulley on light blue
Cheshire Cat on glitter hot pink/Alice on hot pink
Buzz on dark blue/Donald on yellow
Daisy on pink/Donald on yellow
Pooh on yellow/Tigger on red
Dumbo on glitter light blue/Stitch on light blue
Eeyore on purple/Piglet on hot pink
Don’t forget to fill those Easter eggs with Tsum Tsums as well! The small and medium sizes fit inside regular plastic eggs with no problems and most large ones will as well. The only that wouldn’t close for us was Minnie Mouse because of her ears, but she would fit fine in one of the larger size plastic eggs.
I hope I’ve given you lots of great ideas to stuff those Easter baskets this year and that you have a very happy Tsum Tsum lover on Easter morning!
