Chewbacca (Star Wars Buddies)

Of course, they made a Chewbacca Star Wars Buddy. Who wouldn’t want their own cuddly Wookie? Chewie looks more like a Boyd Bear than anything else to me. Mostly do to the face. Which also makes him look like our wonder pup, Madison. Pretty typical teddy bear style nose and eyes are used to make […]

C-3PO (Star Wars Buddies)

Salacious Crumb (Star Wars Buddies)

Last week I checked out what may be the best representation from the “Star Wars Buddies” first wave. This time I’m looking at one that is less than perfect, Salacious Crumb. Jabba’s little cackling pet has his fans, and I’m sure some folks love him,though. Let me get this out of the way. I think […]

Wicket the Ewok (Star Wars Buddies)

In the late 90’s the country was swept up in a toy buying craze. Not Star Wars Action Figures, but people were nuts over Beanie Babies. Their collectors were rabid and voracious. To get in on this fad, Kenner brought Star Wars Buddies to the toy aisles. Small cute plush versions of some of the […]
