My daughter’s Itty Bitty collection has been getting bigger – in more ways than one.
She recently received two iconic DC villains – Batman’s nemesis The Joker, and the feline femme fatale Catwoman.
My daughter has really taken to the Batman cast of characters, and it’s great to have these heroes & villains in their Itty Bitty form. Female characters tend to be more difficult to come across in superhero merchandise, so I’m particularly glad that she now has Catwoman.
The Joker is especially suited to the cute Itty Bitty look, as his maniacally happy persona is not at all at odds with the aesthetic of the brand, and his trademark purple and green colours make this a bright and attractive little plush toy.
We also had a bit of a surprise with an addition to the Itty Bitty line – Itty Bitty Biggies!
These are exactly the same design and proportions as the Itty Bitty line – but far from itty bitty in size.
My daughter was the happy recipient of Batman and Superman Itty Bitty Biggies, and they complement her existing Batman and Superman Itty Bitty, uh.. smallies – so it offers a direct comparison for just how big these new ones are.
My daughter has already decided that the big superhero plush toys are the parents and the little ones the children.
While the normal Itty Bitty’s are the perfect size for little hands to grasp, the big ones are just right for a great big cuddle. They’re also a lot harder to lose – while the small ones have turned up behind the couch or under the bed, these biggies aren’t going anywhere.
Hallmark’s DC Superheroes Itty Bittys are available from Amazon and other retailers now. RRP starts at £6.
