Last week, we spotted a new shoulder plush that’s perfect for fans of Disney’s “Aladdin.” Guests visiting Walt Disney World can now take “one jump ahead” with a new Abu Shoulder Plush in tow.
Aladdin’s best pal Abu is the latest Disney character to make their debut as a Shoulder plush. The mischievous monkey from the 1992 Disney classic makes the perfect travel companion. We spotted plenty still available at the Disney and Co. shop inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but Abu can be found across Walt Disney World, including inside the Emporium at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
Abu Shoulder Plush – $22.99
A magnetic shoulder plush is a small stuffed animal that is paired with a magnetic plate covered in fabric. When a guest purchases a plush and places it on their shoulder, they can place the included magnetic piece below their shirt to make the character sit in place. The plush then appears to perch on a guest’s shoulder as they walk around the park.
Guests will want to remove the shoulder plush when boarding any of the more thrilling attractions in a Disney Park. While a park buddy like Abu would have no trouble taking a trip on the happiest cruise that ever sailed, he would not fare as well aboard TRON Lightcycle Run, Space Mountain, or even Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Shoulder plushes are small enough to fit within the storage compartment provided on most of Disney’s faster attractions.
Abu’s body is covered in a soft, brown plush. Parts of his eyes, nose, and smile are all embroidered with a satin stitch.
Of course, Abu is wearing his signature red vest and hat. His tail curls up in the back.
A magnetic base within the bottom of this shoulder plush, and the included magnetic plate, make Abu the perfect companion. Abu can easily sit on your shoulder, just like in the beloved film.
The packaging contains a matching fabric-covered magnet to insert beneath your shirt on your shoulder. This holds Abu in place.
Shoulder plushes have been found more frequently at the Disney Parks lately. If you’re a big fan of the “Loki” series on Disney+, head over to Keystone Clothiers at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to pick up your very own Alligator Loki Shoulder Plush.
In addition, Aulani’s beloved ‘Olu Mel has been reimagined as a magnetic shoulder plush, appearing at the Polynesian Village Resort, while a “Pinocchio” Jiminy Cricket shoulder plush appeared at Disneyland recently.
