Review: Inside Out comes to the Disney Store

You will probably have seen the advertisements for this movie over the Summer even if you haven’t yet managed to see the film.
Inside Out is a film based in ‘Headquarters’, the control centre inside of 11 year old Riley’s mind.
The movie sees Riley and her parents move to San Francisco and her world is turned upside down.  Five Emotions are the main characters of the film, led by light-hearted optimist Joy, whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear heads up safety, Anger ensures all is fair and Disgust prevents Riley from getting poisoned – both physically and socially.  Sadness isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.
We booked to see this during the Summer, unfortunately we had to cancel as family things came up so we are hoping to catch it one weekend when we next have a free morning.  Emmy has been asking to see it and has seen the trailer many times.
To celebrate this film – The Disney Store has released a whole range of toys and accessories which are available both online and instore.
Emmy and Harry were sent a selection of these so we could show you some of the range available.
  1. Set of 5 scented Lip Balms.
    This very cute lip balm set featuring all 5 of the characters from the movie.  A perfect size for small hands, and aimed at aged 6+.
    Each character is a different scented balm: Blueberry, Apple, Cinnamon, Pineapple and Grape
    Priced at £8.95 this is a cute introduction to make-up, something Emmy has been asking to wear when she sees me putting on mine, however I’m not too keen on letting her loose on mine.  This is a fun alternative (although she has coloured in the face of her dolls a few times with these as they do leave a slight coloured tint)
  2. Shopper Bag.
    A large sized bag made from 80% recycled bottles with fabric handles which make it comfortable to carry.  This is a reusable bag priced at £2.50.  Emmy likes to take this to the supermarket with us so she can carry her items home – these are usually a magazine and sweets which have conveniently found themselves in my shopping trolley yet no-one is guilty of placing them there!
  3. Journal.
    I tried to claim this for my own only Emmy wouldn’t allow.  This comes with lined and graph paper separated with dividers and featuring artwork of all 5 characters.
    This is a compact size, a little smaller than A5.  It is spiral bound with 5 dividers, each of which can be used as a cover depending on who your favourite character happens to be.
    Priced at £12.95
  4. Large Tumbler with straw:
    This features a wraparound picture design which is printed on the inside and out to give a 3D effect.  There is a screw top lid to help prevent spills and leaks. 
    Priced at £5.95.
    This is not dishwasher or microwave safe.
  5. Character Mug: Joy
    Of course I have confiscated this as my own – it features the character Joy on one side and “It’s a Great Day – Joy” on the other.
    This is both microwave and dishwasher safe and is priced at £7.95
  6. Character Ball: Anger
    You can’t really go wrong with a ball in this household, a favourite toy for both children, when they are not fighting over it they can have so much fun playing nicely together.
    Priced at £4.95 this air-filled ball is approx. 8.5cm
  7. Small Soft Toy: Joy
    This cute soft toy is around 36cm’s tall and is of course of the character Joy, with her signature yellow dress and blue hair, a cute a cuddle friend for any Inside Out fan.
    Priced at £12.95
Also available are clothing, stationary, soft toys, mugs featuring the other characters and many more – you can view the full range over on

  1. We are really looking forward to this coming out on DVD as we didn't get to see it at the cinema. I've heard it's really good. Love the look of the characters and these products x
