Moved cross-country! Please read for updates~

My husband took a job across the country, and we have just settled. Since we moved so far we weren't able to bring everything with us, unfortunately. I sold a small chunk of items as fast as I could on ebay, and I left at least 100 plush with a good friend of mine at home to sell off for me (Dragon Ball DX, some Naruto, One Piece). I haven't checked every plush to see if they are ok but I'm going to start working through them. The ones I looked at do seem fine.

I am trying to update my list to the best of my ability so I ask for patience if you inquire while I seek out the item. I received some emails before I left while I was packing and am trying to respond to them but my inbox is a bit jumbled, so if I don't reply to you in the next few days please email me again. Packing was quite an undertaking, as was waiting for our shipping units to arrive, unloading and unpacking. Phew!

We were only able to secure a small place to live so I am going to start trying to clear things out in the next 6 months (so cramped!), so if there's something you're eyeing please inquire now or it will likely end up on ebay some time in the near future. I made this blog for two reasons: to find new homes for my items and to have some kind of reference for plushie lovers since information on them seems jumbled and incomplete. So, once my items have found new homes I hope this blog still serves as a helping hand for those collecting.

Thank you so much for your patience!

Fullmetal Alchemist / Hagane no Renkinjutsushi Banpresto 2004 UFO Catcher Plush Prize

Hah, here's one I know REALLY well!! As I've been adding sets here I kept thinking, "I HAVE to add the FMA set soon!" I love this set so much, it's absolutely adorable and has aged beautifully (though it's not as old as some others, 2004 was 12 years ago now). Like the Naruto Soft/Squishy plush set these are sitting plushies with beanie butts. They also look good full-body hanging on a hook as well. Nice quality, nice details, smart designs.  The material the military outfits, Ed's jacket, and winry's top and bandana are made of is velvety and attracts a lot of fizzles and dust though.

Edward is so cute!! All the details are there and of course I love the embroidered faces on this set. Embroidered details last so much longer. He's got his belt, alchemy medal, vest. 

Alphonse! Really nice pattern, I feel like this could have gone wrong in lots of ways! The little cat is adorable and I think Al looks even better sitting than 'standing.'

Winry Rockbell, looking lovely with a wrench in her hand. Details in her pants pockets, tied waist, earrings, right down to her little gloves. Bright and sunny expression, I like her a lot!

Roy Mustang!! SO CUTE!! I only wish they had made little fingers snapping somehow. ;A; All the details in his jacket are there except they didn't make him wearing a white shirt underneath, must be laundry day XD

Armstrong. This is one of the most fun plushies I've ever seen. So well done! Look at that face, that sparkle, that hair curl! How wonderfully perfect is that hair curl?? He's just so great, another unique addition to the set with a great pattern. He always makes me smile. 

For pricing, it seems like longer-running auctions tend to sell for $20-40, probably depends on who is looking at them. I am not seeing many Armstrong or Winry, perhaps they were the rares of the set. Also something keeping prices down for Ed, Al, and Roy I think is that plushies were made and released in the USA so there was competition in a way. I tend to like the Japanese plush more ^_^;; This set is just precious and perfect for FMA fans, I highly recommend it!

UPDATE: Armstrong, Ed, Winry SOLD

Konjiki no Gash Bell / Zatch Bell Banpresto 2004 UFO Catcher Plush Prize

And yet another plush set I don't know much about, but here it is!! Very cute, and well made.

Gash Bell, with Vulcan 300? 

...and crying haha!

Tio, so sweet with her pretty embroidered eyes! Nice details under her toy, her watch is cute too.

An odd looking little guy since I don't know the series, but nice details and I can't fault anyone who loves chocolate!! He is very 3 dimensional so it's hard to photograph him, but it's a good pattern.

Umagon, a... uma? Horse? He's actually quite cute in person, and very 3 dimesional as well. It's hard to see but he's blushing XD 

I really cannot find information on these guys in my usual spots, so no idea on pricing. 

Gash Bell with Vulcan 300 SOLD, Gash Crying SOLD, Tio SOLD, Umagon SOLD, Kanchome SOLD

Ojamajo Doremi Dokka~n UFO Catcher Prize Banpresto 2002

This is another series I don't know at all but somehow have the plushies for it. This seems to be the 'Dokkan' version of them. I can say they are very nice quality, large, and quite cute!

Doremi Harukaze, back of tag and skirt have small marks. 

Senoo Aiko, small factory glue mark on the back, otherwise looking good!

Segawa Onpu, great condition.

Asuka Momoko, small crack, tear in tag.

Fujiwara Hazuki, small dot on hat, factory marks on glasses.

Hana-chan, small mark on her glove. 

On ebay these (this size, later series) seem to get listed for around $50/ea, but I don't see this set in particular.

Pink Haru SOLD, Hana-chan SOLD Onpu SOLD Momoko SOLD
