Disney•Pixar's Up is a wonderful animated feature that takes you on an emotional journey and makes you feel connected with the characters during the progression of the story. During this movie Ellie gives Carl a little grape soda bottle pin when she invites him to be part of her explorer club, He wears this throughout the entire film. When their journey wraps up Carl gives Russell the pin as "the highest honor he can bestow" which is a really heart felt moment. If you are a Disney or Pixar collector and like to collect things from the movies this is something you should definitely have in your collection. I recently found a great Etsy shop called Fable Fox that creates high quality replicas of the Ellie badge and they've agreed to let me host a review and giveaway here on my blog.
For my review I was sent one of the Ellie badges and I am quite pleased with it. The base is a light weight silver bottle cap which has had a grape soda label placed onto it with a clear plastic seal on top. The bottle cap appears to be brand new and used for the purpose of crafting it does not appear to be used in any form. The bottle cap is punctured through both sides to allow the safety pin through so you can pin it to a purse, lanyard, shirt, etc. The pin is actually quite easy to pin onto different accessories and it looks great I think it fits in nicely with my Disney collectable pins.
I like that the badge arrived on a little backing that had the quote from UP along with a bunch of balloons in the background, and it arrived in a little bubble mailer to keep it protected. I've seen several different small shops selling similar badges but just based off color wise this is my personal favorite because the badge is a deep purple like in the movie verses some of the lighter versions other shops sell. Shipping was speedy and communication speeds are great.
One lucky winner is going to receive an Ellie badge for their own collection and will also receive one to give to someone else.
