These Upcoming Animated Movies Got Us Thrilled!

Do you know what else we love aside from making cute, huggable plush toys? It’s looking out for cool animated movies, and 2018 has A LOT of them piled up!

Here are some of this year’s upcoming animated flicks that we can’t wait to see!

Smallfoot – September 14, 2018

Have you ever asked yourself: What if Bigfoot exists? Well, it turns out Bigfoot is asking the same question too! In this Warner Bros. animated film, a Yeti named Migo has discovered something that could shock his whole community—humans are real! The plot alone has got us excited on how this cool twist in the story unfolds, but we’re also stoked about the exquisite graphics! I mean, who doesn’t love a cute Yeti that looks like a cuddly stuffed toy?

The Grinch – November 9, 2018

Our favourite grumpy, Christmas-hating character is back in full 3D animation! No amount of remakes can make us hate this character so much because that’s just how iconic he is. In this new animated do-over of The Grinch, we can’t help but chuckle at how the Grinch is just like us when we’re having a bad day. Of course, Benedict Cumberbatch as his voice actor is a plus, too!

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2 – November 21, 2018

Goodbye, 8-bit videogame world. Say hello to the internet! We never thought the day would come when Wreck-It Ralph embarks on an adventure into a whole other world. With the trailer alone, we feel as if we’re also Ralph and Vanellope, curious to know what else is in store in their new journey! We just hope we could get our hands on Wreck-It Ralph plush toys and other merchandise as well!

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – December 14, 2018

So Sony Pictures Animation has just recently released the trailer to this film, and all we can say is HOW COOL WAS THAT? We just love a full-length superhero animated movie. It’s a breath of fresh air from the series of superhero live-action films that are being released today. If you love Spider-Man as much as we do, check out this cool Spiderman stuffed toy or these cool superhero plush toys!

It’s no wonder why the Pusheen plush toy is all the rage these days. They’re not only soft and cuddly, but they are also extremely adorable! One can’t help but let out squeals and giggles!

If you just want to get your hands on those Pusheen plush dolls, we’ve got a surprise for you. There are other plushie alternatives that are just as cute and just as charming as everyone’s favourite cat sticker!

Everybody loves a cute unicorn plush toy. Unicorns are not just elegant mythical creatures, they are also super charming and adorable. If you can’t get your hands on a Pusheen doll, you will be equally happy with an Uber the Unicorn stuffed toy! You can get it in different vibrant colours depending on your favourite!

Aside from unicorns, there’s another creature that kids are obsessed about -- ponies! No wonder the kids’ show, My Little Pony, is such a hit among children these days. Unlike the singular character of Pusheen, the My Little Pony gang includes a variety of interesting characters such as Pinkie Pie, Apple Jack, Fluttershy, and Princess Twilight! They’re just as irresistible as a Pusheen plush toy!


Bunnies have long been stealing our hearts with their two front teeth and fluffy cotton tails. If you think there’s nothing cuter than a cute cat plushie, a Peter Rabbit plush toy or a Bugs Bunny stuffed toy will prove you otherwise!
