I received them both way back when in January, but they have withstood the test of time since then. If any of Banjo's joints aren't stiff enough from prolonged sitting, the stuffing can be squeezed around to rectify that. Kazooie on the other hand is still as posable like new, even if she is stuffed to fit in Banjo's backpack over a long period.
I wasn't one of the original fans and have only been immersed in the series following their inclusion in Smash, but I'm very keen on collecting merchandise of the characters I pick up and use extensively in the game. This plush set does them the most justice for me of anything officially licensed and commercially affordable.
When I got this plush I was so excited to have a Banjo plush (because the other ones are very expensive) but when I got in three days one of Banjo’s threads on his paw fell of, and a few days later one side of his belt buckle was falling of so I had to put a pin to keep it up. Also Kazzoie’s wings can break easily so be careful. But anyway I suggest you buy it if you want a Banjo and Kazooie plush on a budget!
I've gotten other great plushes before from Fangamer, but this one takes the cake. Every single detail on this is perfect. Banjo is super solid and could almost stand on his own (a little too top heavy). His backpack has a velcro close on the back so he can be displayed with or without Kazooie. Kazooie has amazing detail on her wings. The inside of the wings are pipe-cleaner style, so they can bend and be posed easily. Her legs also have this inside, so they can be folded neatly into Banjo's bag without damage. I can see this being hard to obtain very soon, and I would snag this sooner rather than later.
Thank you Fangamer, for making a fantastic Banjo & Kazooie stuffed animal(s) that brings back some of the fondest memories of my childhood. I never had the opportunity to buy a plush B&K back then, but seeing the quality now, I feel that the long wait was more than worth it. The design, detail and quality are all phenomenal. After having mine for over a month, they seem fairly durable, and should suffer little damage from casual use. My Kazooie's right wing came loose at the join to the body after about a week, but other than a drooping wing they're still in great shape.
If you're looking for a reminder of the days when video games could be a work of art, and enrich your childhood, then look no further than this wonderful product. Hopefully Fangamer will release more plush characters from this game (and other great games from the 90s) in the future!
I really do like this plush set, really good value. Kazooie's kinda hard to get into the backpack, though
This official Banjo-Kazooie plush set was designed by artist Versiris, and features Banjo with his signature Rare backpack, perfect for holding his Breegull pal Kazooie! Kazooie comes with posable wings to show all her flight-or-fight poses!
Banjo & Kazooie stand at 9" and 6" inches tall respectively.
