    Thumbs up Merchandise for PIXAR animated shorts?

    I'm sure MANY of us have become enamored with many of PIXAR's animated short cartoons! These shorts are just as amazing, if not, moreso, than the Animated features they preceeded!

    Not that long ago PIXAR gave us a chance to enjoy all their shorts in a single release. BUT has there been any merchandise released for these short subjects? Most of the major features have had at least some sort of toys, games, or action figures. BUT these animated shorts have characters that are just as endearing and captivating as the full length features.

    There would be so many great products featuring these "PIXAR Orphans"

    Just look at these. I for one would LOVE some sort of Plush Presto Rabbit, or even a magic kit!

    Who wouldn't love a Boundin' Sheep and Boundin' Jackalope?

    Who wouldn't want a For the Birds, stack 'em up Game, or FtB Jenga with a big fat bird on top?

    Who wouldn't want a snowglobe and a set of the real live Knick Knacks?

    Who wouldn't want a real live Jack Jack Attack FLAME thrower!?!?!?!

    THE TIME IS NOW for these PIXAR Orphans to get their chance at MERCHANDISING!

    If anyone knows of ANY merchandise available for these animated shorts, let me know! PLEASE! Thanks!!!

    I agree. I think the problem is that the folks at Disney think that only the diehard disney fans will buy this stuff. But you gotta create die hard disney fans by giving them something worth going die-hard FOR.

    But I dunno... perhaps the pixar company store has some goodies but not available to the general public.

    Re: Merchandise for PIXAR animated shorts?

    I just rewatched all the shorts on Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume One over the weekend. I'm not 100% sure right now, and in watching the bonus material too, I thought I saw a plush of the big blue bird from For the Birds sitting on the shelf behind one of the Pixar people being interviewed. I'd never seen it for sale anywhere and assumed it was a Pixar employee exclusive or just something created for concept and not mass-produced.

    Also, if Disney chose to release them now, it's sort of random timing. The ideal situation would've been when Volume One came out.

    I've recently watched that DVD too and although I can't recall seeing the bird, I definately saw a plush Knick Knack snowman on a shelf.
