Universal Orlando Merry and Nutty Online Shopping Guide
Are you stuck trying to find a gift for a Universal Studios fan or movie buff? Well, Universal Orlando Resort has a Online Store and curated a sample of their products that would make awesome freebies for everyone on your list. Best of all, you can buy it all from the cozy comfort of your home. This buying guide covers a variety of Universal Studios properties and, of course, includes Earl the Squirrel.
Wait, who’s Earl the Squirrel?
For those unfamiliar with the character of Earl the Squirrel seen on a number of Universal Orlando’s holiday products, he was actually born of an actual squirrel who decided to live in the larger Christmas tree. of the park one year. The bug was discovered by workers, who were quite surprised by the presence of the little guy. He later became something of a holiday icon for the theme park, with a stuffed squirrel placed in the tree every year since. Earl the squirrel now enjoys a full range of holiday items call his own.
Theme park trivia enthusiasts or those who frequently visit Universal Orlando will certainly appreciate this adult raglan t-shirt. The graphics on the chest and back pay homage to Earl the squirrel. The rear also includes nods to other universal icons, like ET and Woody Woodpecker.
The classic look of this varsity hoodie will appeal to those who want to be more subtle in the wearable fandom. Features include a lined hood with drawstring, handwarmer pockets, varsity stripes on the sleeves, “US” screen-printed on the chest and a “Universal Studios” patch on the hem.
This hoodie is the best thing to wear when preparing for a possible crash with a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The front has graphics depicting the dinosaur in question with claw prints on the left sleeve. On the back are tips on how to survive if such an encounter happens, such as “avoiding the urge to run”.
With a concealed mesh “mask” combined with reflective design accents, this zip-up hoodie lets young Transformers fans dress up as Optimus Prime. It also has two side pockets as even Autobots sometimes have to keep their hands warm.
Gidget from The Secret Life of Pets is so adorable that she has her own zip-up hoodie for kids. With a small graphic of the Pomeranian on the chest, the back has a large image of Gidget with “Yes I’m adorable” in glitter lettering. Other attractive touches include contrast stitching on the hand warmer pockets and hood as well as a colorful print lining for the hood.
This record ornament has an ‘old school’ feel, with vintage King Kong style art and the retro Universal Studios marquee logo. It would make a thoughtful gift for those who have visited Universal for many years.
There are lots of unique and downright beautiful things ornaments to be found at the Universal Orlando online store, but the smartest styles are probably the ones designed to look like the outfit Harry Potter and his company wore at the Yule Ball. These 6 inch tall embellishments beautifully recreate the details of each outfit. This is especially evident in the ornaments of Ron, Hermione, and Ginny. But whatever ornament (or ornaments) you choose, they are sure to be an eye-catching element on your tree.
Ugly and Villainous Unicorn Plush Pillow ($ 34.95)
This unicorn pillow plush is, indeed, “so fluffy!” Not only that, he’s pretty darn fat, standing 22 inches tall. The design is striking, with different lengths of pile in the fabric and a shiny golden horn. And that silly face just looks into your soul.
Plush croc ($ 29.95)
For the aspiring wizard or witch who already has a room filled with owls, this Fang plush is an adorable (and cuddly) gift option. The plush version of Hagrid’s canine companion stands 13.5 inches tall and is made from buttery soft velor. I absolutely adore mine.
Other fun gifts
Package of 4 chocolate frogs ($ 49.95)
Perhaps the most memorable magical snack is chocolate frogs (Butter Beer is a contender, too). Crafted from solid milk chocolate, each Chocolate Frog weighs 5.3 ounces and comes with a collectible wizard card, both packaged together in a pretty, movie-accurate box. While the character on the included wizard card is usually random, this 4-pack is sure to include the four founders of the Hogwarts Houses: Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Helga Hufflepuff, and Rowena Ravenclaw.
Despicable Me’s Fluffy Unicorn is reinvented in Funko’s POP! silhouette style then transformed into Loungefly Mini Backpack. This pretty accessory features adjustable shoulder straps, a zippered front compartment, a larger main compartment and two small side pockets. The interior has a rainbow print lining. This bag would make a colorful gift for kids and adults.
As well as being another great way to incorporate Earl the Squirrel into your holiday shopping, this drawstring backpack would be great for stashing smaller gifts. You can also simply use it as expected. The backpack features adjustable shoulder straps, a drawstring top and an interior zip pocket.
