We recently started to collect Funko Pops and I thought it was time for a blogpost about these fun and super adorable little vinyl figures!
Funko Pop vinyl figures are some of the most popular toys at the moment. They’ve become a cultural sensation, stretching across multiple genres and franchises like Star Wars, Batman, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, you name it. And also Disney, which is what we are collecting, ofcourse!
Do you also collect Funko Pops? Tell me in the comments below which ones you already own and which ones you have on your wishlist! For those who don’t really know what Funko Pops are: keep on reading! We’ll explain it all below!
Funko Pops are little vinyl dolls which you can collect. I just started to collect their Disney Princess Pops. They all look the same, with their similar shapes but they still very much have their own character and you can recognize them right away!
This is our tiny little collection right now, with some of our favourite Disney princesses: Snow White, Ariël, Merida, Alice and Aurora. On our wishlist are Rapunzel, Cinderella, Moana, Belle and Mulan. These Disney princess Pops are not that difficult to find so I’m not in a hurry to buy them but some Funko Pops are very rare, which makes collecting them extra exciting and fun!
These Disney princess Funko Pops look so lovely!
Alice in Wonderland was my very first Funko Pop and thanks to this little doll I am now obsessed with all things Funko! Being known as @judithinwonderland online it was only meant to be this way.
What is a “Chase”?
When Funko ships boxes to retailers, they are sent in lots of 36. One of the pops in the case is called a Chase. Whilst it is the same character, it is slightly varied from the rest, making it rare and more collectible. Usually, Chase Pops have different colors or paint and have a unique sticker on the clear plastic. In short, they are highly desirable, somewhat limited editions of Funko Pop! They were usually one of twelve or one of thirty six but they recently started making a Chase for nearly every new series and cutting the rarity down to 1:6, making them much easier to find. Yay!
What is a “Flocked Pop”?
A Flocked Pop is covered with a fur like material which gives them a soft feeling when touched, and makes characters feel more realistic than the regular smooth painted vinyl surface. Flocked Pops are usually exclusives and harder to find.
What are Dorbz, Mystery Mini’s, Rock Candy, etc…?
They are other kinds of collectible figurines made by the Funko company. They are parallel product lines similar to the Pop vinyls. Dorbz are adorable, like super adorbz! They are a bit smaller and are just the cutest! And Rock Candy dolls are a bit larger and super detailed. I really hope to add some Disney villains like Cruella de Vil and Maleficent to our collection soon! We actually own two Rock Candy dolls already: Starfire and Raven from Teen Titans Go! (We love the Titans!)
Dorbz are sooo cute!
Rock Candy dolls are a bit taller and super detailed with an extra dose of Girl Power!
Raven & Starfire looking all cute and fierce! We’re big Teen Titans Go fans and these dolls are an amazing start to our Rock Candy collection!
FunkoPops.nl has added lots of new Teen Titans Go Pops, which is very bad news for my wallet…
Also fun to collect are Mystery Mini’s, they come in little blind boxes so you don’t know which one you’re gonna get! And another cute item to collect are the Funko Pocket Pop Keychains! Joya has one of Rapunzel and I have a little Jasmin.
These little cuties make the perfect gift for every Funko Pops fan but is also a great way to take your fave Funko with you everywhere you go!
Funko releases new Pops all the time and we are super excited about their new Care Bears collection! The Care Bears were a hit when they debuted as a cartoon, but were originally designed as a line of greeting cards. They found mainstream success for kids around the world in the 80s and 90s and remain pop culture favorites to this day. I had them when I was a kid and I love to see Joya playing with Care Bears now! These Care Bear Pops are just the perfect combination of nostalgia and kawaii, and I am gonna need them all!
I am superproud to already be the owner of a Flocked ECCC Good Luck Bear, an exclusive Emerald City Comic Con 2018 Pop! They’re available as a very limited edition here ~ at FunkoPops.nl!
