These Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cuddle Pillows Are Amazing

Posted 7 years ago by Toys

TMNT Pillow Buddies

It’s hard to feel guilty about being obsessed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and spending a ton of money on them when everywhere you go stores are filled with awesome TMNT products again. One thing I’ve had my eye on for weeks now since I first saw one at Target is the collection of TMNT Cuddle Pillows (or Pillow Buddies, depending on where you find them). Plush Turtles are always a staple of Turtlemania regardless of the decade, but these are hands-down the best I’ve ever seen, and I knew I had to have them.

The thing that made me even more interested in them was how hard they are to find as a complete set. For a while it seemed like Target only carried Leonardo and Raphael, Toys R Us had Leo and Donnie, Kmart had Leo, and nobody had Mikey. That baffled me, because if you were going to make a cute and cuddly version of a Turtle, why not start with Mikey?

I ended up snagging a Leo at Kmart on sale one day, but just swapped him out for a Donnie. I gave the Leo to my nephew Brady for his 5th birthday, and he loved it. The only thing keeping me from getting them all (because being a 27 year-old guy with no kids wasn’t enough) was the fact that I didn’t think Mikey existed. Well, he does, and even better, you can get each Turtle on Walmart’s website for less than $18 each. Yup, Donnie, Leo, Mikey, and Raph.

You’re welcome.

I’ll make sure to post some ridiculous pictures of me snuggling with my cuddly Ninja Turtles as soon as the other three get here.

Funko Pop TMNT Coming Next Month!

Funko Pop TMNT

Thanks to Cody at Crooked Ninja for tipping me off that these Funko Pop TMNT vinyls have been revealed. I saw a teaser image for them a couple months ago and have been dying to see what the final products would look like, and damn, these are amazing.

I’ve been resisting the urge to get into Funko Pop for a while but this will break me. I’ve had my eye on the Power Rangers vinyls but have never bought any. I think I’ll be getting those as well as every one of these TMNT Funko Pops as soon as they come out. I love how the Funko Pop vinyls are uniform in their cuteness, but the characters still look unique.

What do you think? Will you be ordering these?

Read this, it's probably the best piece ever written about the Super Mario Bros. movie.

Well, that escalated quickly. Kind of sad to see this historic game company bite the dust, but then again, when's the last time they made a good game?

Damn it, it's going to be way harder for me to ignore this movie if Will Arnett is involved.

[Contest] Win an Awesome Mini TMNT Arcade Replica

TMNT Arcade

If you follow me on Instagram (and really, why wouldn’t you?), you’ve probably seen me post shots of action figures hanging around a model Asteroids arcade cabinet. Years ago I posted about those G.I. Joe-scale arcades and I ordered one myself from

Well, I was having so much fun with my Asteroids cabinet that I wanted to get more of these awesome model arcade cabs, and I knew I had to have the TMNT model. I also figured that you all would be stoked to get a chance to win one yourselves, so when I placed my order I asked about hosting a giveaway, and they were for it.

If you haven’t seen these, they’re incredibly detailed models of actual arcade games from the 80s and 90s. They are to G.I. Joe scale, but they work really well with lots of different action figures, including Ninja Turtles. EMDKay has a crazy-huge selection and eventually I want them all, but for now I’m just glad to finally be able to take meta photos of the Turtles playing their own game.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’ Looks Weird

TMNT Out of the Shadows

One of the things I’ve been looking forward to a lot since the Nickelodeon TMNT show has taken off in the past few months is new video games. Ninja Turtle video games were a staple of my gaming life from the NES through the SNES and Genesis. I got excited about the Reshelled game on XBLA, but other than that I haven’t played any more modern TMNT games. I have been hoping Nickelodeon would see to it that we get some awesome TMNT games.

A while back they announced a partnership with Activision to product three games, presumedly based on the new Nick cartoon. Well, now the trailer is out for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, and I don’t know what to think.
